Today I'm going to talk to you about a couple of tips for sewing in a weave. The first tip that I always give is that I like to use a curved needle. The reason I like to use a curved needle is because when you put it underneath the braid, it comes right out on the other side, whereas you don't have to look for it like with a straight needle. The other thing that I like with the sew-in weave is to use a razor when you cut it after you're finished, because when you sew it in, it has spaces between the tracts, it helps to get the hair to blend easier. When you're sewing in your tracts it's important to make sure that you sew the ends down to your tracts, so that they don't come off, and they don't stick up out of the weave. That's my little tip about a sew-in weave.
