Yay I just became able to post bulletins!!
 
Ok so I sew-in my own weave [use 2] and when I do it I start from the back, leave hair out, sew in a track, leave hair out, sew in a track, over  and over till I reach the top and I leave the top hair out.
 
that was last year and my hair broke off like CRAZY where the hair was loose.Ouch
 
How do I apply (or have someone apply) sew-in's and how do I care for it so it PROMOTES growth instead of breaking it?
 
thanks!!!Star

you can do a full sew in weave where none of your hair is out. Just make sure your braids not super tight or u will have breakage. But its up to you and what you prefer. I been doing a full weave for 2yrs and my hair is growing like crazy.

u need to take care of your hair the same as if u did have an half install ur real hair might need more product then the weave...but a full sewn is your best bet to protect all your hair

when I have a "full sew-in" sometimes I leave my whole perimeter out (my sides, the back of my hair and the top) cuz i like to pull my hair up a lot into ponytails.....usually i have a side part or i apply my weaves so that i can change my parts from side, to middle, to no part at all....when I have sew-ins, I moisturize my own hair everyday.....i spray some s-curl in between the tracks to moisten my braids...my hair never breaks from sew-ins, only grows

i braid up ALL of my hair at this point.. i've never done an instal the way you described but i have left the perimeter out.. and ther perimeter is what winds up getting damaged.. i lost quite a bit off the back and i wasn't even doing anything to it!!

could be the textures getting tangled, more likely it was the fact that i treated my entire head like weave hair in order to get it to blend, so the perimeter, or horsehoe, or the back wound up taking on excessive EXCESSIVE amounts of heat..
now i braid it all up and use a closure or in a couple of weeks... a frontal.. 

it is possible however to do a full weave with no tracks showing and no hair left out at the top.. i just dont know how.. lol.

I dont think you should leave any of your hair out between tracks becuase its obviously not doing you hair any favours

Braid up all the back and just leave your horsehoe out, but remember to keep your hair mouisturised ... ( which is something ive been ommiting to do, im dreading taking out my current weave Ouch)

i agree with the ladies. i personally leave as lilttle hair out as possible b/c my hair started to break around the parimeter, too. i have a small horseshoe that allows me to part in diff directions. but now my hair is in better condition b/c i have just discovered wrapping my extensions. I know i'm lateEmbarrassed but this lets me ease up on the heat everyday and my natural hair is doing much better.
