Protective Style Series Vol 15.1 | My Wedding Hair: Mega Brazilian Human Hair StyleMix One Pack Straight Weave

Mega Brazilian Human Hair StyleMix One Pack Straight Weave
Ohhhh! Not only am I excited about this new sew-in, but my best friend and cousin Stephanie is getting married this weekend!!!!!! I am so happy for her and her future husband. This planning has been in the works for 1.5 years and now the time has finally come. And what's one of the most important details for the bridal party to have?

PERFECT BRIDAL HAIR!

Stephanie wants the matron of honor (myself), maid of honor, and bridesmaids to have the simple style of half-pinned up with hair down in curls. Of course this style is very easy...if you either have a relaxer or use heat in your own natural hair. However, I remember the few times I used even low heat on my hair and got brutal heat damage no matter what precautions I took. So Stephanie wants the bridal party to have curls in their hair....okay! But yea, no heat for me sis. So I decided to do a sew in weave...on myself.

Prepare My Natural Hair

I knew I wanted to do a sew-in weave for the wedding, but I needed the style to be 1). cost effective and 2). something I could do on myself. I didn't want to pay hardcore money on a style I would wear for the week, then throw all that money away by cutting it out immediately. So of course I did all the research I could for at least 10 months...yes 10 months on hair! After all my research, I found that Mega Brazilian Human Hair StyleMix One Pack Straight Weave #4 would be the best match for me and the bridal hair.

Braiding Pattern And Weave Cap

I wanted to have a middle part with no hair out, so I braided my hair down into a cone pretty snug to my scalp. I used Camille Rose Naturals Nibs and Honey Ultimate Growth Serum to massage my scalp after finishing my braiding foundation. I wanted to have a Weave cap so the weave wouldn’t cause so much tension on my own hair and to keep my hair protected. So I sewn the perimeter of the cap down on my own perimeter to be more snug, but not tight.

Adding The Weave - Partial Closure

I added the middle part weft first so I would know how much weave I would need for the rest of my hair. I should have put the very front of the weft down on my perimeter but I left a bit uncovered, which caused a few problems for me when sewing it come, geeky down in the front. But it looked really natural when I was done with it.

Adding the Weave - Sewing In The Weave

I started with the longest hair first and worked up to the short hair. I pretty much used the entire bundle except for a few pieces. I did double weft the hair so it could look full and be snug during the style. I didn’t want any weave to fall out.

Shape the Weave

I chose not to cut my hair because I wanted to keep the hair long for the hair stylist to curl my hair for the wedding.
