HaHa..... Jenny, It's really quite simple. I just hate the fact that
there are so many different names thrown out there and it ends
up being the same method.These are two very flat methods of
weaving. I would be thrilled if DIY'ers can pick it up.

Ha! Ha! I guess this is sort of like an online tutorial! I luv this forum! Weave sistahs unite!

Ingenious! Spraying down fine hair for flyaways. Every little thing makes such a difference. My mannequin has the tight weave! I'm ready to do this on a friend now. I just love learning new techniques! Oh! I know what I wanted to as you Save A Stray- how small are the horizontal sections? I assume they shouldn't be too wide.

This method is easier than the pole and it has the same effect. The pole gets on my nerves sometimes. Always having to mess with spoools, tension and adjusting the machine is a hassle.

I think you are talking about the spacing's right? If so, it
depends on the clients hair. Fine hair I would do closer
spacings like say anywhere from 1/2" - 1" apart . It's really up to
you how you want to place the spacings. Each person is
different.

no actually the sections that you part. I've been doing them pretty thin.

1/2- 3/4" between tracks is what I like. I prefer more of the
natural hair out than the tracks being too close together. I like
the horseshoe tracks following the natural shape of the head.
Let me know how your friends hair turns out.....

Excellent. I will add this to the links whenever I can get into the thread. Can you girls just tell me which names this would go under (Malaysian, Pole, or anything else) and what you would suggest it for (the advantages and disadvantages of using it), what kind of hair it's best suited for, how it differs from traditional weaving, etc.).

Thanks a lot! :)

MALAYSIAN & FRENCH LACING METHODS

These two weaves are for achieving the flatest weaves without
any bulk, like you tend to get with a braided track.

The Malaysian Method is suitable for most hair types and can
last up to last 3-4 months.

The French Lacing Method is suitable for fine, caucasian hair
but can be used on all hair types. Lasts 6-8 weeks.

The big advantage to these methods is the super flat feel you
get, which is hard to achieve with a braided track.

The disadvantages I could see are these methods may need
maintanence sooner than a braided track would. There also
may be some slipage with these methods. Another is the cost
factor. Salons can charge a much higher price than a weave
with a regular braided track. if you can learn this with a friend, it
will save you $$$$.

Jenny~ you may just want to call it...Flat Weave Techniques
due to the fact that there are so many names out there that are basically the same method. Just a thought......

This Malaysian method sounds just like a method my stylist used to use called "Pinch Weaving" It was just a bunch of knots as a base and then the weft was sewn on top of the base.

Here's a description from hair factory


http://www.hairfactory.com/Videos.htm

Pinch Weaving Video is 54 minutes. #VI-8 . . . $29.99
Learn The Pinch Weave Base. Quick & Easy.

A special technique of weaving with needle & thread. No braiding or bulkiness. Form a secure base & attach any length of weaving hair. If it can be pinched it can be weaved. Two weave styles are demonstrated; silky fine Caucasian hair to add volume & a short relaxed Afro American hair.

Afro Puffs:

Have you tried the Hair Factory pinch weave on anyone. How does it hold up?

I have tried the Secure Locking method on a hispanic client with fine hair (which seems like it is the same as the Malaysian method) and it was ok. It did not come out, but it was very loose after about 5 weeks.

I love the idea of weaving, because I think it can be more gentle on the hair, but it does take a lot of practice.

After I ordered the tape, I called Lisha for a few pointers, and she said watch your thread tension and hand angles, and practice alot. I may give this method another try.

hi metalgirl,

I'm not a stylist and only do my own hair. I've never done this technique on myself because I failed miserably each time I tried but my stylist hated glue and she used this technique on me.

I can't remember how long it used to stay. I don't get it done anymore because she moved to California.
