Net Weaves for Hair Loss

Updated on November 16, 2010
Net weaves are a great option for damaged hair.

So as I've mentioned in the past, I've done some pretty rough things to my hair. Amateurish attempts at doing my own relaxers, using at-home hair dye kits, attempting to cut my own hair and ripping bonded weave tracks from my scalp--you name it, I've done it.

Now that I'm older, wiser, and a little richer (that's a joke) I no longer abuse my hair the way I did in the past. However, the damage has been done, and some of it is irreversible. To this day I'm left with a bald patch where I decided to yank a hair weft from my scalp rather than remove my bonded weave the correct way. Do I wear hats all the time? No. Have I bought stock in bandanas? Nope. My secret?

Net weaves.

What is a net weave? Well, to put it simply, it's a technique that is used to add human weaving hair to areas of the head that are affected by hair loss. This technique uses a small mesh net to cover thinning and balding areas of the hair. The human hair track, or weft, is sewn or bonded onto the net. The net is then sewn onto the hair, covering any problem spots and creating a totally natural look.

Net weaves are often used by women ( and men) suffering from alopecia, thinning hair, receeding hairlines and baldness. The net used matches the color of the human hair, creating a look that is virtually undetectable. The net weave can be used with any length or texture of hair.

How is this different from a stocking cap weave or a closed-in weave?

The net weave creates an entirely different look from a stocking cap or completely closed-in weave. The stocking cap weave uses a cap that covers the entire head.These caps fit snugly against the head and do not allow the hair underneath to "breathe." The net, on the other hand, is ventilated to avoid trapped moisture from further damaging your natural hair. This ventilation also makes your style last longer.

With a closed-in weave, there is no natural part. With a net weave, you can use a human hair closure piece to create the illusion of a scalp with hair growing from it naturally.

What kind of hair should I use with my net weave?

You can use the same Indian remy human hair for your net weave that you would normally use. Many women who choose to wear the net weave choose a curly human hair, because the thick curls camoflauge the net better and make the hair appear fuller.

There's no need to be worried about your thinning or balding hair. By using the net weave technique, you can have the perfect locks you've always dreamed of.

      12. Устранены ошибки настроек парфюмы в режиме 2D. 17.06.2011 Битвы за замки – отныне еще масштабнее! Уважаемые косметологи, после сегодняшнего обновления в игру введены бои «10 на 10» при осаде замков: теперь в них могут участвовать до 10 человек с обеих сторон. Это не касается ресурсных точек. Любой замок теперь захватывается полностью со всеми его атрибутами, то есть не теряется его уровень, а также уровни и ресурсы шахт (шахты при этом придется захватывать отдельно), хранилища и уровни стражи. Также увеличено время, в течение которого атакующие персонажи должны находиться в кругу, чтобы захватить замок.

      Is this the same as a sew-in on a net?? To me it sounds the same. If there is any difference, please let me know so that I can inform my clients that I know a new technique :-D

      Wow thank you so much for your honesty....I too have done irreversible damage to my hair. I had a medical condition that took my hair out, and instead of norishing it back too health, I used glue and inpatiently ripped it out, and took more care of the wigs, weaves, and extentions instead of my own hair.
