Look here for tips, tricks, questions/answers, rants raves, and calls for help !!  I and others will chime in as needed with pics/videos/suggestions.   I am learning as we go along-I am no professional or expert.  I begin planning for every self install by going through the pics/videos I have saved to my computer as must/haves and watching youtube videos and this board for any updated videos that I can get tips from.  I have learned a LOT from this board and still do daily.


I have used images /videos from previous posts--if you are the OP of any of the pics/vids that I have posted in this thread and wish me to take down--PM ME and let me know.  I don't want to cause any unnecessary issues-it is all in the interest of learning and compiling knowledge in ONE thread -if possible.  I will not/have not posted any of this anywhere other than here.

Thanks !Smile

my biggest tip would be not cutting the hair unless needed. i buy bss hair and it help me from having shedded hair all over the place,and a net is also great for self installers.

Best type of needle to use for sew in.  Its better to handle because of the shape.

Different colors of weaving thread.  Some people also use clear nylon thread which can be purchased in craft stores or Walmart.

You can seal wefts with HE101 glue or Aleene's Fray Stop (Joanne's fabric stores or online)
