My First Sew In Weave!
Tips & Take-a-Ways
I never thought I would, but here I am rocking my very first sew in weave (with no closure or leave out). You guys know I love my crochet braids. I’ve been wearing crochet braids as a “workout proof” protective style for a year and a half now. I’ve enjoyed the convenience and freedom of experimenting with color, curls and length, all while protecting my natural hair underneath.
But, despite the ease and convenience of crochet braids, I’ve been drawn to the silky, natural texture of weave extensions. Weaves provide access to a whole new look and texture of hair not found with crochet braids since the silky texture prevents the interlocking required to secure crochet braids. So, after months of research and, yes many YouTube videos, I successfully installed my first sew in weave! But not without plenty mistakes and frustration. To help you avoid making those same mistakes, I share below my top take-a-ways from my first weave installation.
