2.Protect your natural hair

  • Wear a wig net to protect your hair before you start to sew in with stitches.

3.Prepare the hair weft bundles

  • Measure and cut: Measure the weft against your part and cut it to the appropriate length. Seal the cut ends with a bit of hair bonding glue to prevent shedding (optional).

4. Thread the needle

  • Prepare the thread: Thread the needle with a strong, matching thread. Tie a knot at the end of the thread to secure it.

5. Sew in the hair weft bundles

  • Start sewing: Place the weft along the part where you made the braid. Insert the needle under the braid and pull it through, bringing the thread through the weft.
  • Stitch tightly: Continue sewing along the braid, making tight stitches to secure the weft to your natural hair. Make sure each stitch goes through both the weft and the braid.
  • Knot the thread: Once you reach the end of the weft, tie a secure knot with the thread and cut off the excess.

Tips for a Successful Sew-In

  • Choose the right weft hair extensions: Select weft extensions that match your hair color and texture for a natural look.
  • Tight but comfortable: Ensure the braids and stitches are tight enough to secure the wefts but not so tight that they cause discomfort or damage to your scalp.
