Braidless Sew-In Weave!

 
via: FJunkie


What is a Braid-less Sew In?
This hair weaving technique is definitely unique and similar to bonding. The foundation is created with a thread and needle technique, leaving some of your hair out. So you would have a track of weave and a part of your real hair to cover that track then another track of weave and so on. In return, you have flatter tracks and you can wear your hair in ponytails. The sew-in lasts 6-10 weeks and must be removed by the stylist.

For this service, most stylist also recommend that the extensions being used match the texture of your real hair so very high quality hair is best when doing this . Usually, 5-6 tracks will suffice for this.


Advantages:

You can part your hair in multiply ways and it LOOKS Natural!

Warning: When removing the tracks DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THEM ON YOUR OWN you will cut your hair!

Cost $400-$900*
Check out the YouTube tutorial below! How cool is this? Will You Try It?

  1. Seeing the costs and how long it last, I will stick with my good ol sew in lol. Another downside (for me) is that my hair would have to be that texture of my weave. Ilike my wavy weave and I know my hair is far from wavy lol

    1. I wonder why it's so expensive, when it seems like a lot less work than a normal sew-in?

  3. LOL at Kimesha! It does cost a pretty penny, hopefully with more research I can find other places that don't charge as much.

    WOWZERS! $60 is a steal!

    1. hey, i had it done before years ago and i loved it!! It's not painful at all. It probably just looks like that because she is demonstrating on a dummy head. But I had it done like that years ago and havent gotten a regular sew in since then. It can be a little pricey, but it lasts and it's worth it!

  6. Apparently the $50 weave shop charges $30 per track so it shouldnt be that expensive

  9. if u get a keratine treatment and a fresh perm before doing this style you won't have to put heat to your hair... just wrap it at night brush/comb it down add a lil biosilk and boom ya done!

  16. One of my teachers in beauty school showed us that technique a long time ago, its not new but it shouldnt be that close to the scalp and it shouldnt be pulled super tight to prevent breakage caused by excessive tension. If done right it should look great and last a while but dont try to take it our on your own or you'll be in some deep mess.

  17. I am trying to grow my hair natural n healthy. Right now it is an inch in the top and about 3/4 around the edges. I want to know what is best to start with as far as braids. No glue! It irritates my scalp.

  18. Just imagine taking this out, it would be very hard to tell if the part your trying to cut out is thread or one's actual hair ?!

  19. The video is Not the way it's supposed to be done.I am a licensed Cosmetologist. You use beads as a platform that DO NOT break your hair off. Then you sew the hair onto the beads.

    1. Hey Cosmetologist; I have a question...and I am both a bartender and a Surgical Tech so if you could help me I would be glad to help u anytime you need info on a stiff drink or stitches I would be happy to return the tabor. I'm white girl with not just thin but also baby fine. I think the "sewing" part of that would wk on my hair. Its almost the stitch I was gonna use. I wont have the breakage issue but must do something. I have terminal cancer and although my particular chemo did not make me lose my hair. But it did thin just to stress! And feel free to Msg me on Fb...I'm th only Sundey Land. Thx Soo much.
