Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of one of my most popular books the natural hair Bible and founder of for these videos I love to answer the questions you all send me via email so any of you have any questions that you would like for me to answer be sure to check out the description box below for additional information so to get right on into the video in this video is because of a question I received from Emoni, Emoni emailed me because she said that she gets her sewins done at least once a month since switching to a more affordable hairstyle is she noticing that her sewins feel a little bit tighter which is very uncomfortable so Emoni I'm going to share with you three important things that you have to keep in mind when you're getting her sewins done that’s going to help them feel a lot more better on your hair and to be better for your hair and so the very first thing that always sticks out every time someone emails me about sewins is that most times the braids are too tight so depending on how your style is installed for your sew in most sewins are done on a braid pattern base whether you have a beehive braid pattern a butterfly braid pattern a straight to the back braid pattern it really doesn't matter the braid pattern you have what does really matter now the new look of your hair is that the braids arent done too tight so guess what you have to tell your hair stylist and they have to alleviate some of the tension because it feels too tight when someone is braiding its easy to heavy or what they call heavy-handed if your are not conscious of exactly how it feels because there braiding it's not their head in your head so if it feels uncomfortable just speak up if you speak up things go a lot more easier because most times they probably didn't even realize that it was too tight for you until you have spoken up so make sure that you're letting your stylist know that the braids are feeling too tight if your hair is being braided because once you have tight braids nothing will alleviate that unless you take down your braids or as the days pass as your hair is growing which is going to alleviate the tension now the very second thing I'm going to mention is something that a lot of people overlook but is really important when you getting your installs is the type of sewing thread you're using if your stylist is using cotton sewing thread what happens is that every time any moisture is into play or any moisture comes in contact with the cotton thread what it does is it swells up and it expands around your extension and your braids this leads to an even tighter install some women have felt that I have to get install their braids felt tighter for some reason and most likely that's because of the threat that you're using so make surthat your stylist only uses nylon sewing thread to sew your extensions onto your braids and now the very last tip that I will going to share is something is going to alleviate both of those things is going to alleviate the tight braids and the mistake of using the wrong sewing thread and that is using excuse me that is sewing your own sewins I have already done plenty of tutorials and teachings and DVDs on how to do your sewin and for more information you can check out the description box that will provide you links to such if you want to learn how to do your so-and-so I don't know how frequently this is happening but if you feel like you rather do them yourself then you can do so you can learn how to do your own sewin that I've taught myself for everyone else to enjoy how to do your sewin on your own hair so that way when you're braiding you know what it feels like when you're braids are too tight you control how tight your braids are you control the type of extensions you're using as well as your sewing methods and as well as the bread of supplies you using as well so thank you for emailing me that is very very easy to have more comfortable sewins you just have to make sure using the right materials and that your braids are not too tight so thank you and thank you everyone else was watching this video I hope you greatly benefited from the tips that I've shared as well and until next time I will see you are in my very next video
