Prepare for sew in hair extensions without braids

As a common rule, you need to shampoo your hair to remove all the dirt, stickiness, and oils from the hair. You will not wash your hair as often after attaching the sew hair extensions, so make sure you keep your hair clean before the process itself.

How to sew in hair extensions without braids

As I said, Sew in hair extensions without braids is a sophisticated process. So, you should go to a hairstylist to get it installed perfectly without any damage. There are some steps you can refer to understand the process thoroughly.


In the place of a braid here, you make a track with thread to attach the wefts. 

Part the hair from ear to ear and clip up the top portion. Knot the thread after passing it through the curved needle. Now pass the needle through a tiny portion of hair at one ear, through the hair at parting as close as possible to the roots. 

Do not let the knot pass through and pass the thread through the knot and pull it through to make a loop. Continue looping in the same process until you finish making a track from left to right tightly. 

This track is now useful for attaching the weft. Keep making partings with an inch spacing and create the tracks till you complete the required look. Continue working on each track by attaching the weft as you would with the braided hair.

After Attachment

You can style or cut the extensions to achieve the desired look or to blend it more naturally. Braid or cover the hair before you sleep. A satin pillowcase is also helpful. Wear your waterproof swimming cap while you swim. Condition them once in a while and wash them every week. 

Take care not to tug too hard as the weave might come off. Avoid tangling your hair in the first place by using proper shampooing techniques and by keeping the tossing to a minimum. Also, cover your hair during heavy wind.


- Enjoying long and beautiful hair also requires some hard work, especially during wash days. You need to choose your shampoo depending on the type of hair extensions you have. 

- Apply the sulfate-free shampoo from the ends to the roots and then use a wide-toothed comb to allow the even distribution of shampoo without tangling the hair. 

- Gently use your fingers to clean each part and do not rub vigorously but just wriggle your fingers in the place to loosen the dirt.

- Let the hair dry thoroughly before you style it. It is essential to avoid mold on your scalp.
