Shampoo your hair and blow-dry it. Part your hair in the front and make sure to leave some hair out to cover up the hair to be sew in. Pin up the hair in the front that you going to use to cover up the extensions. Part a row in the hair in and commence to braiding the hair back into cornrows. Do this for the entire head making sure that the cornrows are narrow and flat.
Hair extensions are one of the various ways to make your hair appear longer, healthier and more lustrous. Many brands of hair extensions can yield natural looking and long lasting locks. Sewing in hair extensions is one way to add extensions to your hair. One of the greatest benefits of a sewn-in weave is that there is no glue application, making the extensions easier to maintain and remove.
Things You'll Need
- Hair dryer
- Human Hair Extensions
- Curved Hair Sewing Needle
- Hair Sewing Thread
- Hair Clips
- Flat iron
Thread the needle and sew the ends of the braids across at the nape of the head. Begin sewing the hair extensions horizontally into the cornrowed haired starting from the back of the head. Go from one edge of your hairline all the way over to the other edge. Sew a knot with the thread and needle into the hair at both edges to secure the hair into place. Cut the track (the area on the weave that the strands of hair are attached to) near the edge of the cornrow. Repeat these steps until the whole head is done.
Remove the clips from the front of your hair. Flat iron your own hair so that it blends well with the hair extensions when you comb it. Part your own hair to make the bang style that you desire. Comb some of it towards the back and sides so that it covers all of the tracks of the sewn-in hair.
Cut the sewn-in tracks into the hair style that you prefer. Flat iron or curl the weave hair into the style you desire.
