What is Vixen sew-in?
There are many different types of weave stitching, but have you encountered “Vixen Sew-In”? If you follow a variety of protective styling or weaving magic on Instagram or Pinterest, you may encounter this look. In essence, Vixen sew-in is an emerging method of installing hair extensions that allows you to have more style options. This method differs from standard weaving installations in the weaving pattern used. Instead of weaving all your hair into a honeycomb pattern, your hair is divided into four parts. Each part is woven into a beehive. The entire edge is left with hair. Two parts will cut the middle part of the hair. And cut.
The advantages and disadvantages of Vixen sew-in
The key feature of the vixen sew-in is that it gives you more styling flexibility. With normal weaving, you can get stuck in your sewing hairstyle unless you don’t mind showing your track. But with vixen sew-in, you can create parts in different parts of the hair without displaying any tracks, allowing you to create more appearance. If you are a person who likes to change things, then a devout weaving may be good for you.
When it comes to a Vixen sew-in, there are some drawbacks.
- The weft must be cut off when using the vixen method. If you have already paid a lot of money for your hair, you may not want to do so because it can cause loss. However, if you fold the track when you reach the edge of the braid, you can avoid cutting.
- You leave more hair than using normal weaving. In order to disperse more hair, you need to leave more hair. So, unlike standard weaving, your hair is all around the periphery and in the middle between vertical and horizontal. Only through manipulation or exposure to elements can it cause more potential harm.
- Some people have also said that a vixen sew-in can add tension to your hair. Some stylists hold their customers’ hair tightly so that it can tolerate the style they might sew. Most importantly, turning your hair into ready-made hair will give your hair more tension.
You can address these shortcomings by simply putting too much-strained hair on your hair and making sure your lice aren’t done too tight and taking care of your omissions. Remember that hair needs more maintenance and care when you have more hair.
How to do a Vixen Sew-in?
When it comes to making natural-looking and attractive sew-in hair weave, it boils down to one essential matter: how good is the braiding. Braids that are loose or raised and even bulky then the sew in would easily detach. On the contrary, if the braids are tight, flat and small, it will be easier to sewn-in, and it will give a natural look.
The edges of hair are prone to split or break as they are fragile. It should come without saying that daily routine such as tying your hair in ponytails and brushing the edges are causes of breakage. If these are already causing the harm to your hair, you should get an idea of the total damage and tension to your hair if you braid the edges of your hair for a prolonged period.
You should use larger sections so that the tension is evenly distributed. The front hair should not be braided, and it should be smoothed down instead with pomade and then scarfed up for a short while, say 15 minutes. To avoid unwanted continuous tension on the same spot, you should not use too much hair on your edges. Note that too much of tightness can give you headaches and also damage your hair. Be sure that you don’t braid too tight.
The side of the head is where you should start when you create the cornrow. Then, begin by crossing the hair on right hand below the center section, followed by crossing in on your left-hand side. Go on and repeat the crisscross pattern along the part line and add in more hair from your head while you proceed. Make a cornrow braid by adding it to the center section. To ensure that the braid is of delicate tightness, tight but not too tight. At the end of it, use an elastic band or rubber band of dark color to secure the cornrow braid.
Be cautious that you don’t take too much hair when creating the cornrow, because it would be prone to develop mold if it does not dry completely after a wash. The extensions should be sewn carefully. You are advised to get hair stylist assistance to neatly secure the hair extensions on your head. One essential thing to note is that the stitches should be invisible from the surface and you will need to keep them neat.
