ARE SEW INS BAD FOR YOUR HAIR: Do sew-in weaves damage your hair?
If you’ve ever let someone sew a weave into your hair, you may have heard that it’s bad for your hair. And if you’re like me, you probably rolled your eyes and thought “that’s what they say about everything.” But is it really true? Are sew-ins bad for your hair? The short answer is no. If done well, a good sew-in will not damage your tresses. There are many benefits to getting your locks sewn in too! So let’s break down each side of the debate on why sew-ins are good or bad for our locks:
Sew-ins are not all bad for your hair.
Sew-ins are not all bad for your hair. Some people have a misconception that sew ins are harmful to your hair, but this isn’t true in most cases. If you go to a professional stylist, they will use quality hair that is braided and sewn into place with tiny needles so there’s no damage done to the natural growth pattern of your strands. The only real downside is that it requires maintenance (just like any other style).
If you have a good stylist they will use quality hair to sew in.
If you have a good stylist they will use quality hair to sew in. When shopping for your sew-in weave, make sure that the bundles are thick and shiny. The color should be natural and not too dark or light. Also, check that there is no shedding when you run your fingers through it.
There are many benefits to having sew-ins done.
There are many benefits to having sew-ins done. If you want to change your hair, but don’t have time or money to go to the salon every couple of weeks, a sew-in weave can be a great option for you. You can also use sew ins to protect your hair from damage during special events like weddings or proms.
Sew-ins can be used as an alternative to relaxers, curls and flat ironing.
Sew-ins can be used as an alternative to relaxers, curls and flat ironing. Sew-in weaves are less damaging than other hair options because they’re not permanent. If you want to try a new style but don’t want to commit long term, sew-ins are a great option for you! Sew ins also have the benefit of being able to add volume and length to your own natural hair without having it cut off or permanently straightened.
Sew ins can also be used as a protective style while growing out damaged or unhealthy hair–this is especially useful if you have colored or bleached strands that need time for recovery before styling them again
If you get your sew-ins done by a good stylist, it is less damaging than other hair options.
The most important thing to remember when considering whether or not getting a sew-in weave is right for you is that it’s not the only option available. If there are other options that won’t damage your hair as much but still give the same look, then those should be considered first. However, if no other option will work (and this could vary depending on the person), then getting a sew-in weave might be worth considering and even worth doing every once in awhile!
Sew ins are only bad if you don’t take care of them properly or use quality hair
If you’re wearing a sew in weave, it’s important to take care of it properly. If you don’t, your hair can be damaged by the chemicals in the hair extensions or even just from being pulled too tightly.
It’s also important to use products that are meant for weaves and wigs that will protect your real hair from damage. Heat protectant is a must–if you use heat on any part of your head, use heat protectant first! This product should be applied before styling so that it has time to work its magic before any damage happens. Another way to prevent damage is by using leave-in conditioner after washing; this will coat each strand with moisture and keep them healthy looking instead of dry and brittle looking like most people think they’re supposed do look like when they’re wearing sew ins (even though they actually shouldn’t!).
If possible try sleeping without having anything clipped onto your head at night because even though there may be clips holding everything together tightly enough not budge during sleep hours or activities such as exercising at gym class or working out at home doing cardio exercises like running laps around house etcetera… but what about sleeping? Do those clips stay put overnight long enough so no movement occurs within 24 hours period which could cause breakage/snapping off?
Hopefully this article has given you a better understanding of the pros and cons of sew-ins, as well as some tips on how to choose a good stylist who will take care of your hair. We hope that you will be able to make an informed decision about whether or not a sew-in is right for you!
