At Salon La Reine, we offer a wide range of hair extensions to suit every client with every hair type. In today’s blog, I want to focus on Braidless weave sew-in hair extensions and how they’re a great way to add length and thickness to your hair without using heat, glue, or braids.
How are they fitted?
Micro rings are applied to your hair horizontally then wefts are sewn across the micro rings to attach them securely.
The advantage of braidless weaves
- They lie much flatter to the head and because there’s no braid, there’ll be less tension on your natural hair which can cause hair loss and damage.
- The wefts can easily be reused and repositioned.
- Without braids, the extensions are much more comfortable to sleep in.
- Braidless weaves can be fitted fairly fast, usually in 1-2 hours.
Are there any downsides?
They don’t tend to last as long as pre-bonded or micro ring hair extensions.
Braidless weave maintenance
The weave needs to be moved further up your hair every 6 to 8 weeks as your natural hair grows out. The micro rings will need to be moved or replaced. If you follow the proper aftercare advice I give you, the extensions should last around 4-5 months.
Washing your braidless weave sew- in hair extensions
There’s no problem with washing your extensions, but if you wash your hair very day, I’d advise you to reduce this and to only wash your hair with the recommended products. If you wash your hair extensions with the wrong shampoo, they won’t last as long.
Are they comfortable?
Your hair will feel heavy at first but after a few days, they’ll feel more natural.
