I want to use this for my sew ins. I did a couple of searches on the board and saw that some women use this. I wanted to know though is the thread bad for our hair? I know it is nylon and would give a strong sew in but has anyone experienced any adverse effects from using the thread?

my stylist used to use it for the front of my closure but i dont like it because it doesn't have as strong as a hold as the other thread she uses.

I know nylon is whats used to sew clothes with and that does not compare with weaving thread at all. Regular weaving thread is much stronger.

Wouldn't regular weaving thread break your hair off? I don't think I would try that.. Maybe on a wig, not a sew-in.

You mean the kind you get at the bss for $1? Nah, thats what is normally used. Either black or brown. 


OP, you can find regular weaving thread online in a bunch of different colors from black to blonde. Just google, i cant remember any sites off hand.

Dual Duty XP® Heavy
Dual Duty XP® Heavy

Dual Duty XP Heavy provides extra strength for heavy-duty sewing needs such as upholstery, sewing on canvas and  repairs. It is ideal for bold topstitching, cording and stitching hand-worked buttonholes.

I wouldn't recommend the clear thread for your sew ins.  The non-stretch clear thread is more rigid than the extra strong nylon thread (I prefer this).  I purchased a small spool of the Dual Duty Plus by Coats and Clarks that is similar to the large spool that Wags retails. I prefer to have only 3 sides of my closure sewn and that can be accomplished with the thinner nylon thread. I hate the cotton BSS thread (takes forever to dry when you shampoo your hair).
