How to sew in hair with leave out?
In this tutorial, Jordan bleached the hair and dyed the hair to match the hair color of the model. So we recommend the same here, you can choose for the hair color resembling your natural hair or colored hair if you want a natural look with leave out.
Since Jordan here was styling the model a middle part, so leaving enough hair to cover the tracks in case of showing the braiding tracks. And Jordan suggested you can leave the hair around the entire perimeter so that you can pull up the hair into a ponytail.
For the braiding hair, Jordan used a regular braiding pattern and the braiding hair on each cornrow for a looser hair texture.
After braiding the hair, using oil to ease the itchy feeling of your scalp.
Before sewing the bundles onto your hair, you can add a net to create a flatter and stronger foundation. And it's more convenient if you have thin hair.
Make sure the first sew the first track underneath the braid, it can help you create a ponytail hairstyle with less trouble. And double the tracks if you use, for example, 4 bundles to create a thick hair look.
Don't use heat too high onto your hair, or it will burn your hair and dull the hair color if you have color-processed hair.
After sewing the hair, you can use some freeze spray to calm down the hair. And you can deal with the leave out and cut some layers to blend the natural hair well with virgin hair bundles.
