Q: What is a sew in?
A: A sew in is a method of adding extensions to the hair without the messy glue. There are two types of sew ins available; a partial sew in, and a full sew in. With the full sew in weave all of the scalp hair is braided. The entire head is covered with the extension and a closure is used to finish and cover the extension weft. Full sew in weaves are great for those that are transitioning from chemically treated or relaxed hair to natural hair. The braids will allow for the scalp hair to rest from chemicals, heat, and any other damaging repetitive daily styles like tight ponytails. With a partial sew in, parts of the hair is left unbraided the cover the weft and to give the style a more natural look. This actual part or hairline showing provides a look that the extensions are growing naturally from the scalp. This technique can be installed on chemically treated or natural hair. With all our sew ins, we use a net cap that will make your sew ins last longer, but causes less stress to your natural hair. It also allows access to your scalp, so you’re still able to shampoo, moisturize, or just scratch as you would with your natural hair.
Q: How long do sew ins last?
A: Sew ins can last up to 3 months with proper maintenance.
Q: How do take care of a sew in?
A: When you wash your hair, only wash it in one direction. Avoid any of that crazy hair-scrunching lathering. You’re bound to get badly tangled extensions if you wash your hair like that. Don't sleep with wet extensions. Dry them well, sit under dryer, and tie them up to avoid tangling. Always use professional hair products that are best for your extensions. Some products can be good to your natural hair but not to your extensions. To prevent any slipping or tangling from fault of your own, it is recommended to visit your salon every 2-3 weeks for regular shampoos.
Q: How much is it for a sew-in?
A: Our sew-ins starts at $95 depending on the cut and style.
