Sew-in Hair Extension: The Ultimate Guide

Hair extensions—which add volume and length to our existing hair—are available in a wide range of textures and lengths. With so many options, we usually choose extensions based on our lifestyle needs and manageability requirements. Extensions are a great accessory that helps pull our entire look together. In most cases, they are vital in our protective styles and aid in healthy hair growth.

WHAT IS A SEW-IN HAIR INSTALL?



A sew-in is a popular hair weave technique that uses braids as the foundation for attaching extensions. A stylishly cleanses and blow-dries the client's hair then braids it to create a foundation for hair extensions. Sew-ins typically take two to three hours and last about two months with proper maintenance. The stylist attaches sew in weft hair extensions tracks, closures, or frontals using weaving thread and curved needles.

BENEFITS OF A SEW-IN HAIR INSTALL



HEAT-FREE:

Protective styles such as braids or twists do not require the use of heat on your natural hair. So it is safe to manipulate your remy real human hair extensions with as much heat as you would like, without damaging your hair. Braiding large sections of synthetic hair into your natural hair strands will match the texture. If you have leave-out, it is best to choose a texture that matches closest to your natural hair for the best blend. Again, make sure not to over-style by using lots of heat.

SCALP CARE:

The sew-in prevents damage to your natural hair because it is not being tugged on as tightly, but you should still nourish your scalp with the products necessary for growth.

IDEAL FOR ANY TYPE OF HAIR:

A hairstylist will help you determine which hairpieces will best suit your hair type, texture, and density. Those who have full heads of hair can choose whether they want to leave out some strands or cover the entire head. People with fine hair may want to opt for a frontal piece with full coverage.

LONG-LASTING:



Sew-ins are very durable and can last up to two months with proper maintenance. The braided base means they're one of the sturdiest methods for installation.

NATURAL-LOOKING:

A good stylist will help you choose the right texture and quality extensions so your sew-in looks completely undetectable. Seamless track placement and the perfect cut and style will make your weave look even more natural.

ADDS VOLUME:

If you don't like the look of your thin or fine hair, sew-in hair extensions and weaves can help give the illusion of thick, full-bodied hair.

Remember these tips the next time you get your best beaded sew in hair extensions, and then share these tips with your family and friends so they can take care of their own.
