How to Care for Your Sew-In Hair Extensions

 

Sewn-in extensions are typically made from human hair, which means that they are good quality but very delicate. To attach extensions, a stylist braids hair along the scalp, then sews tracks of hair into the braids. Proper care will make your extensions last longer and look better. By washing, conditioning, styling and gentle handling, your extensions will last the six to eight weeks that they should.

 

Step 1

Oil your scalp whenever your scalp feels itchy because of the the tight braids. Spread a little coconut oil on your fingertips and apply it to the affected areas of the scalp. Do not scratch at your head, which can result in frizzy roots and noticeable tracks.

 

Step 2

Wash your hair extensions every seven to 14 days. Choose a shampoo that is high quality and gentle, such as a baby shampoo or sulfite-free product. Condition your hair each time you wash your extensions.

Step 3

Pat your hair dry after getting out of the shower, because rubbing it dry with a towel with roughen the hair cuticles and cause messy hair shafts. Always allow your extensions to dry before you go to bed; sleeping on wet hair extensions can damage them. If possible, sleep on a silk pillowcase or with a silk scarf to protect your hair from pillow friction.

If you are a woman who wonders how to maintain your natural hair extensions, while staying fit and healthy, this post is for you!

Most of  our Ms O Salon clients have routine workout regimens in which their hair becomes moist and extremely sweaty, which can cause mold to grow on your scalp, and cause breakage of your REAL hair, once you remove your hair extensions.  For those who are wearing their real hair already, the solution seems relatively simple- wash your hair after each workout, but those of us who wear protective hair extensions know.. it’s not exactly that simple.

Ways to Wear Hair Extensions

Sew-In Weave by MS O SALON

There are many different ways to wear hair extensions, each has a different purpose and has advantages and disadvantages.  Many people think weaves are limited but with all of the various methods to install and wear extensions, they are anything but!  Here are the most popular methods of installing weaves:

Bonding:

Use of special rubber adhesive to attach wefts to your hair.  This used to be a common method of adding length, volume and/or color temporarily but the potentially damaging effects of the adhesive have made its use somewhat obsolete.  However, the more hair-friendly use of bonding is the quick weave method where the person’s real hair is wrapped and molded around their head, covered with a nylon cap then tracks are glued onto the cap.

Clip-In Extensions:

The more modern and less damaging alternative to bonding, clip-ins are wefts of different lengths that have wig clips attached which can be clipped into the hair.  The clips are removed easily and great for special occasions.

Sew In:

A person’s real hair is cornrowed and the wefted hair is attached to the braids using weaving thread.  This style can last up to 12 weeks with proper care and maintenance.  Another advantage is that the real hair is protected from styling, manipulation, and the environment which facilitates growth and length retention.  You can either braid all of your hair (full) or leave a section out to comb over the tracks to blend in with the extensions (partial).

Net Weave:

A variation of the sew-in weave, the net weave also involves braiding the real hair as a base and then a weaving cap or net is sewn to the perimeter braids.  Wefted hair is then sewn onto the net but not the real hair.  Net weaves have the same advantages as the sew in, but also place less tension and stress on the real hair and are much faster to remove since you only have to detach the perimeter.  The trade-off is that net weaves may be less secure than traditional sew ins but they can last anywhere from 8-10 weeks.

Fair skin tones should lean towards a wine-colored purple, while medium skin tones look best in pale purple, lavender or a pinkish purple. Darker skin tones can wear any shade of purple but the darker purples look incredible. Always remember to cover any blemishes when flaunting a purple lip—this shade brings out any red in your skin tone!
