How to Sew in Hair Without Braiding the Hair
Last updated Oct.16,2020
Braiding a client's hair is commonly considered the only way to prepare the head for sewn-in hair extensions, otherwise known as weaves. However, an alternative to braiding known as "braidless weaving" or "the Malaysian method weave" allows you to create a strong base for the hair tracks in far less time using only a needle and thread. This method creates a less bulky, more free-flowing look and is more gentle on the client's scalp than braiding.We hope that you will know How to Sew in Hair Without Braiding the Hair by watching the video and the article.
Things You'll Need
♥Curved needle ♥Thick weave thread ♥Scissors ♥Rat-tail comb ♥Sew-in hair tracks ♥Section clips
1.Pass a long length of thick thread of similar color to the client’s hair through the needle, make a double knot in the end, and cut off the excess thread.
2.Use the point of the rat-tail comb to create a horizontal ear-to-ear parting, and clip the hair out of the way above the parting.
3.Hold the loose hair, gently pull downward to tighten the hair slightly at the roots, and create an even base for the track.
4.0Place the bent needle away from the left side of the hair (about a quarter of an inch) as close as possible to the root.
5.Pull the thread under the section of hair, but do not let the knot pass underneath.
6.Pass the needle back under the same section of hair, and pull it up inside the new loop of thread tightly to create a knot around the hair.
7.Repeat this process. Work from left to right to create a row of tight knotted hair. Tie off the last knot tightly. Cut the excess thread.
8.Sew in the first track and work along the parting from left to right. Secure track along the sewn-in base.
9.Create another parting an inch above the first and parallel to it. Repeat the whole procedure.
10.Through the hair until the desired result is achieved, as the same way.
Make sure the sewing base is as tight and secure as possible and will not hurt the customer. It is recommended to create a stitched base from the hairline along each parting half an inch in.
