    Does anyone know about this method? Sounds good and thought some of you might want to see this video I ran across.

    I could not believe this:

    Any comments, etc would be greatly appreciated. :yep:
    I could not figure out how they do this.

    The tracks look like there is hair on both sides of the track "seam". The hair on one side of the track is incorporated into the cornrows as they are braided, as opposed to braiding then sewing/glue. I bet you could do the same thing with regular tracks if you braid it right.

    I found this: http://www.shop.flexistrand.com/
    They say they only will use this special kind of hair. It just doesn't seem to make any sense to me though. :ohwell:

    I saw this on their site I just found:

    Looks like some braiding hair attached to a weave track.

    That's definitely a thought. :yep:
    Thanks for your response. :yep:
    I wonder though how they could add braiding hair? I would think that the track would be too heavy....yes?

    My mom has a full install using Flexi-strand hair. It's basically two tracks sewn together and you braid one track into the cornrow.

    Thanks for enlightening me. Much appreciated. :rosebud::heart:
    :sweet:

    I just may try this out in a few weeks. If anyone's interested I will post pictures if I decide to do it. :yep:

    Who knows, maybe others may want to try this too. :yep:
    Now I know why the picture isn't clear with the hair because they did not want to give away their secret.

    Thanks a million! :yep:

    I had this put in last April when I was on the long stretch and the girl I found to do it for me in my area, did not do a good job. I know, because I went to another girl in my area to get it removed, and she told me it wasn't put in good. It was OK, but I wasn't impressed with it. It is also very expensive and they want you to get it removed every 6 weeks. I think I paid $175.00 and this was for the synthetic type of hair, not human. Perhaps they now have more of a variety of hair to choose from.

    I'm not worried, I sewed in weaves years ago so I have experience and am not afraid of it.
    I also had them done when I did not know any better and yes the original sew ins were expensive and they pulled my hair out. I learned through all of my experiences that if I want something done "right", then do it myself! :yep:

    I should have a picture tomorrow. She kept it in for 2 months and likes it better than the sew it. She said the flexi-strands are more comfortable on the scalp, less time consuming to install and remove.

    I think you could. I'm going to give it a go.
    It might also be the way that they are sewn together (tip to tip or layered). I'm not sure, but I remember some wefts already doubled. I'm researching this. :yep:
    Thanks for the response.

    I'm sure you can...You can use the type of hair that you want, and sew an inexpensive thin weft, (maybe even split wefts if they're thick enough to cut through), and incorporate that into your braid.

    What i'm worried about is would the weft itself be too heavy for the braid? Or will it be ok? I'm considering doing this myself later into my transition during the fall/winter.

    I wonder how they secure the braid??? If you are braiding one side of the weft into your hair what do you do to the secure the ends and keep the braids from unravelling.
