Protective Styles-Sew ins

VerifiedkaliVerifiedkali Posts: 7Registered Users
I am wanting to grow my hair out and a friend told me that Sew in weaves can help that process. I am thinking deeply about it, but I need advice. What do you think I should do? I do not want any heat damage on my hair, I do braids while I sleep with a coating or Coconut oil and olive oil. Does anyone know cheap curly human hair sew in wefts that I could purchase. I'm looking for about 3 bundles. LMK. I need it before homecoming.

    I'm not thinking that a sew in weave will be beneficial to your hair. As I understand it, your hair will be pulled into very tight braids and then the weave is sewn in over those. When growing your hair out, you don't want to put it into a rough style. It'll strain the follicles and can cause premature hair loss and balding. It's also very expensive. You'll need to find a hairdresser who knows what she's doing or it won't look right at all. Ask some experts and do lots of research before you spend a lot of money on things like that. Good luck!

    Be careful with these and ask local friends to suggest someone. My best friend recently got one and the breakage was so bad that she had to buzz her head and start fresh. :(
    I personally have used clip-ins in the past while growing out any bad cuts. The ability to change your style daily is really nice and helped my growth a lot

    A lot of people don't consider a sew in a protective style since they can be very damaging. True protective styles keep the ends tucked/ covered, are loosely secured with gentle ties/ tools, they involve limited manipulation and are not damaging. Check out 'Kinky Curly Coily Me!' blog or YouTube channel, the blogger just had to big chop after a weave was taken down.

    you can do a full head weave that leaves no hair out if you want all of your hair protected. I've successfully grown my hair out using weaves so its not impossible, but whenever I have done that I relaxed my hair again. Since being natural I haven't really used weaves as much as before. I did try them for about 2 months last year but I have heat damage on the parts I left out because I had gotten wavy hair. If you can blend your hair well without heat Id say its a good idea. Try wet and wavy hair. I used to use the MilkyWay brand Indian remy but that one might be discontinued I am not sure.
