What is Vixen sew in?
Vixen sew in is about a special braids method that is totally different to the traditional one. While the latter have backward cornrows or beehive shape, the former comes into different parts. Besides, there are some leave-out part for more options for hairstyles. As a result, you can transform your hair extensions into tons of hairdos. This is the most attractive point that no other braid patterns can have.
Pros and cons
- Styling versatility. It is the key perk of this application method. With leave-out parts, you can make different hairdos. Then, you won’t be boring with the sew in anymore.
- Seamless look. No one can detect your hair extensions now even when you have Dutch braids! It’s amazing, right?
- Ease in hair wash and hair care. Separated parts and leave-out parts allow you to apply shampoo easily. You can dilute shampoo in an applicator bottle to apply it under the track. At the same way, you can add moisturizer to your natural tress or it will be dehydrated and get a lot of damages.
- You have to cut the weave hair extensions. We all know that high quality hair is not cheap at all. When you cut the track like that, you may not reuse it again or it takes time in next application to find out the right one in each Vixen sew in. Besides, the wefts now lose it flexibility to apply in other installation methods. To make it worse, your weave can be shedding in this case.
- Too much leave-out. These leave-out require you to blend it with weave hair extensions by flat iron frequently. Thus, the heat will cause damages to your natural hair.
- Not for everyone. It’s necessary to have enough hair length or you cannot try this one.
