The weave is virtually undetectable and hair can be worn in high ponytails or up-dos without the worry of tracks being visible.

Warnings

Always have a professional stylist remove the braidless sew-in to avoid cutting and damaging your natural hair. Don't leave the sew-in in longer than 12 weeks; natural hair can get tangled into the weft of the thread and make it harder to remove. Limit the amount of heat used on the hair to help maintain hair texture and quality. Natural hair should be healthy and trimmed prior to using braidless techniques for best results. Consult with the stylist or beauty professional regarding the type of hair weave to purchase prior to getting a braidless micro flat weave to ensure hair types match perfectly.
