You may have seen a sew in hair weave with Indian hair on celebrities or women in the media with beautiful and stunning hair. What you may not know is that this technique is totally accomplishable at home.
The best hair to use for a sew-in is Indian hair weave - virgin Indian hair. This beautiful hair is obtained from the women donors in India and is highly sought for in the hair industry because of its texture, natural flexibility and durability. Virgin hair is pure, which means that it has not been chemically treated, and it is free of any hair color dye.
If you were to go to see a specialist to get your hair woven with real human Indian hair, it would be very expensive and can take a major hit out of your budget. However, you can get a friend to weave your hair with real Indian hair using a sew-in technique. The friend needs to have some fundamental sewing skills and know how to make cornrows on the hair. It is a little challenging to do it successfully, but the result will be a gorgeous addition to your natural hair.
Here's how to get started. You will need to gather a few things to do an Indian hair weave the correct way. The checklist on the things to get are moisturizer, hair clips, scissors made for cutting hair, large comb, sewing needle that is curved, thread for the needle, and virgin Indian hair weave track.
Before you get started, you will need to wash your hair and comb it out fully, moisturizing it as needed. Comb the part of hair where the weave will be set. Be sure to clip the hair surrounding the weave, so that it will stay out of the way for the following steps to be performed.
Next, a cornrow needs to be created at the length of the Indian hair track, or more tracks if you plan to use multiple hair extensions. The cornrow needs to be made of two sections, natural hair and a segment of the Indian hair. It should be large enough to be able to support the weft, but small enough so that it can be hidden under the natural hair.
Using the curved needle and thread, sew the track or tracks into the cornrow. Start from the edge at the base of the cornrow and work the way up. Keep in mind that the thread needs to be long enough to be able to go from one end of the cornrow to the other end. In addition, the track should be kept as flat as possible when sewing. It is better to repeat the process with two more threads for the added security to keep it firmly in place.
The above steps can be repeated for each Indian hair weave. Trim off any remaining track or tracks outside of the cornrow. Finally, remove the hair clips and cut off any excess Indian hair. The final step is to style it.
The result is a beautiful mane of hair that will instantly turn eyes. It may appear to be very hard to do it just right, but with patience and persistence, it can be done just the way you want it to look. Having your friend to do the weave for you is a much cheaper alternative than going to see a specialist.However, if you have money to spend, it is suggested that you go to a hair salon that specializes in Indian hair weave and let a professional do it for you. That way you know it will be done correctly, and you'll leave with a beautiful, star-quality look.
