Sew in extensions: how to do it step by step

With hair extensions in the form of a hair extensions, you can sew the loose hair directly into a braid of your own hair: this is also called weaving . You need a curved needle and thread of the same color as your own hair to sew the hair weft into your own hair.

  1. Make a horizontal line using a pin comb. Pin the hair over the line so it's out of the way.
  2. Make a braid along the line.
  3. Measure the length of the legs and cut the hair band so that it fits the length of the legs. Here you can use single bridles or double bridles depending on the volume you want to create.
  4. Then, using a curved needle with thread, carefully sew the hair band on top of the entire braid. The ends must be firmly attached to prevent the bridle from slipping out of the hair.
  5. For a substantial hair thickening , sew in the loose hair on a couple of parallel braids, working upwards on the head. The most common is to sew in the loose hair in 3 to 6 rows of braids.

Sewing in the loose hair is a gentle hair thickening and or hair extension method. It is also durable and lasts up to 3 months. The hair band can also be reused.

This is how you take care of your sew-in hairband

Take care of your hair extensions so that they stay healthy for a long time. Just like clip on extensions , hair extensions lack nutrition so it needs extra care compared to your own hair. Remember to always brush your hair in the morning, evening and before the shower. Brush from the ends and work your way up to the bottom to avoid tangles that otherwise wear on the loose hair. Feel free to use hair oil and moisturizing products. Also use heat protection when heat styling with curling irons and straighteners, for long-lasting healthy extensions.
