Hi Ladies,
 
I need some suggestions for my moms hair. She usually gets a sew-in but it's hard to keep her tracks covered because her hair is fine, and naturally thin. In the beginning its ok, but after a few weeks it's hard to cover up, and usually requires it to be re-done.
 
Do you all have any suggestions on what I can do or use to help cover the tracks? Possibly something that would allow her to still use her natural part?
 
Thanks in advance!

Have she tried skin wefts, a full weave with a bang or a curly weave with very little left out with a reverse track at the hairline?

Hi Ricky, How long do skin wefts last? Are they hard to maintain? And where can I get Indian remi ones from? How do you install them?

What about a thin braid with a micro thin weft?

My sister installed skin wefts with LG and she is one that has no problem redoing her hair every week to look her best.  So I don't know how long the install last.  The skin wefts are remy hair so they should last a long time.  She was able to leave out very little hair and it looks really good.
 
Angiedee has a lot of experience with skin wefts and I think Moria did a tutorial on them.

Do you ladies think the reverse method would work? I'm still not sure I understand what it is.
 
But what I am thinking is leaving a small bit of hair out in the horseshoe, and making the braids really tiny. Then use micro wefts, but sew them with the weave hair facing the leave out hair, instead of the weave hair facing out. Then i would comb the hair over? Would the hair lay flat? Will it look bulky?

Hi MsLuxSmile

Your description of your mom's hair sounds like someone describing mine! My hair is thin and fine and the problem I had with the sew-ins was not the tracks showing but slippage when I washed it. And if the braids were tighter I had breakageUnhappy

I have a skin weft install in my fotki. They are super flat, I put them on top of every install now if I can get some in the texture I'm putting in. I use pro-tac tape and Vapon instead of sewing them in though. I'm not sure if people use skin wefts for sew-ins.

The protac/Vapon combo will easily last 3-4 weeks even with reg.(every other day) washing.
I have to careful when removing the wefts because my hair is so fine. I use acetone to break the bond and then the topsol remover that is made for Vapon to get out the residue so I don't have breakage.

A closure piece on top might work too...

I think DivaVocals posted that EP is coming out with a new poly-weft that you can sew in, they are supposed to be like skin wefts.  Am I right Diva???

Poly wefts are their new thing.. VERY similar to skin wefts.. Not sure if they could be used in a swe-in application.. BUT Helene also showed me some lace wefts they are coming out with which could be bonded or sewn in.. HTH

MissLux what about using a closure?? There's a few options in Indian remy closures out there...
