Okay, so let me start off by saying this is the first sew in of my life. I have long, thick naturally curly hair. It's about to the bottom of my shoulder blades. Last year, I was tired of my hair and decided to get a relaxer. Very bad decision. And some of my hair broke off. (It was a little past the middle of my back.) So my reasons for getting a sew in are 1. Grow out this relaxer and get my curls back. 2. Get my length back.

But my questions regarding this sew in are:

1. Since my hair is long and think how should it be braided? I don't want it to be lumpy and bulky.

2. I bought four packs of hair and want to at least use three and half packs. I want it to be really full. How would one go about doing this. On tutorial videos I've seen people only see one track per braid.

I am not doing myself. But I would just like to know as to how someone does this.

Thank you ladies, in advance. xoxo.

As for the first question, I don't do my own sew ins and I know nothing about braiding/braid patterns lol. I suggest maybe that you google braid patterns and see if you find anything for people with thick hair. For the second question, if you plan on doing 4 bundles, the person who does my hair doubles the wefts in the back. Bulkiness is not an issue with it in the back as long as you are not planning to wear it in a high ponytail or something. Hope this helps.

The braid pattern doesn't really matter as long as you use small braids. I this because different people prefer different braid patterns. I suggest using a hair net that way you are not limited as to where you can place the tracks (eliminating the 1 track per braid). Since you're trying to use 3 and 1/2 to 4 packs of hair make sure that your tracks are placed close together that way you can add all the hair. Placing the tracks really close also minimizes the chances of your tracks being shown. 

If you think this info was helpful please thank me for my response.
