I love the beaded sew-in hair extensions method or braided sew-in hair weave, but one nuance is that the thread tangles while sewing. I tried using less thread and rethreading the needle more often, but it is time-consuming. Beaded sew-in hair extensions must be meticulously sewn in order to avoid knotting. The thread must be strong to support the hair weft, especially when sewn against micro links.
We found a perfect solution to keep our thread strong, avoid rethreading, and tangling, and that is "thread magic!"
Thread magic is a thread conditioner, similar to the old fashion technique of thread waxing. Thread magic reinforces the strength of the thread by depositing a wax-like substance to the thread, it reduces static, clinging, and knotting, and this is especially essential when sewing fine hair. Hair is difficult to sew and can tangle into the thread, Thread Magic, literally prevents dragging and fraying when sewing hair.
The added benefit is that it protects against UV rays from affecting the hair, and helps to repel mildew on hair.
The added benefit is that:
- It eliminates static when sewing
- Safe on all types of thread, and hair.
- Does not contain acid and is hypoallergenic
- Makes thread thicker, and easier to work with.
- Reduces hand fatigue
- It does not melt when using a blow dryer or thermal heat tools
We learned about thread magic from a client who uses it for sewing beads onto fabrics, she witnessed some of us struggling with our thread when sewing hair extensions, and recommended Thread Magic! It has been a game-changer for our sew-in hair extension application.
It actually helps our productivity by keeping the thread smooth allowing us to work faster, and more efficiently. It also keeps our thread strong which leads to longer lasting hair extensions.
It is easier to remove thread treated with "Thread Magic," since it does not wear away, and the thread easily slides off the hair extensions.
How To Use
Section your thread, run the section through the thread magic tub, thread your needles, and go! It helps in threading your needle keeping the thread smooth and easy to handle. Hand stitchers adore Thread Magic, and we do too!
Below is a video of how we use Thread Magic!
