Vixen Sew In, The Most Natural Weave Technique Ever for Natural and Relaxed Hair

Imagine having a sew-in that you can part down the middle and sides. A sew in that you can wear a half up or half down style with. And heck , if you feel like it, a sew in that you can do the 80s side ponytail with for the ultimate 80’s party.

This “magical” weave install that I speak of is not one that requires you to go to the end of the earth to find, actually,  you can find it right on YouTube using a smart phone. This weave technique I am rambling about is called the “Vixen Sew In”.

Even though I am not a weave type of girl, this sew in technique made me a beweaver; like what I did there? Now I’ve seen many videos online about how to do the Vixen Sew In, and I was able to stumble upon two great tutorials on how to do this technique on both natural and relaxed hair.

For the natural ladies, YouTuber MsAmberGlamour shows how she does the Vixen Sew In on natural hair (through a self-install) and YouTuber CornFlakes NoSugar demonstrates the Vixen Sew In on relaxed hair (using another model, not herself). If you want to learn more about this versatile and natural sew in technique, keep on reading!

The Vixen Sew In on Natural Hair

In this tutorial, MsAmberGlamour shows us how to do the Vixen Sew In for natural hair with a curly weave. Before she braids her hair, she blow dries her natural hair straight. Now, you do not have to blowdry your hair if you want to avoid heat.

You can easily stretch your hair with many methods via Braids, Twists, Bantu Knots, Banding etc. It would also be a good idea to really condition your hair before you do the sew in; this will prevent you from having to do too much manipulation and ensure that your hair is healthy before and after the install.


Things You Will Need

1. 2-4 Bundles of Weave of Your Choice- For natural hair, it will probably be a good idea to use a curly or kinky weave so that there will be no need to apply heat to your leave out. Good quality, human hair will be the best choice for a long-lasting, natural looking sew in.

2. Weaving Net- To apply over braided sections and protect and flatten the hair hair for easier sewing.

3. Needle and Thread- To sew in the tracks.

Here is MsAmberGlamour working her magic with the Vixen Sew In!

    I want to try this so bad but i dont want my hair to break off. Does vixen sew in equal breakage?

      That’s too much leave out for me… It wouldn’t even be a protective style … But it’s nice

    Great technique!! Even though I wear my hair short if I was gonna wear weave this is how I would want it done.

    It looks good! And I’m not a weave wearer, but hopefully this will upgrade the weave hair game, with this tighter look. 😉

    I want to try it but don’t know how I could having natural 4b/4c hair. What weave would I use that could blend well with my texture?

      Not everyone’s hair grows very fast not to mention it’s fun and the options are endless:) I personally never had long hair and extensions always were fun. I’m just saying

    Seanna you should look up big chop hair they all textures and hautekink and if those are two expensive some Mongolian kinky curly hair brushed out with blow dried 4b hate blends really well

    I tried this…..& it’s a lot of work trying to blend ur natural hair with weave. I have a hard enough time doing it when I leave a small patch out (partial sew-in).

      Hey Gabrielle, I’m looking to do this look with just curly remy, no where near my hair texture. I wanted to ask what methods do you use to blend? I really want to try this but with the blending….I don’t know how hard or how much effort I really have to put in/

    This was awesome! I knew there was a way to install a weave and be able to wear the hair parted, looks so natural! Great vid! Now I have to find someone who knows how to do this!

    Unless your hair matches perfectly, it just seems like a big headache. Such a technique is more about the skill of the hairstylist and an excuse to charge more. After the mastering of a front part (whatever version) and a high pony tail, what more do we need?

    Yea that’s the ish……I’ve seen it on IG. I need to study it so I can learn how to do it.

    It looks very very good and extremely natural but thats way too much leave out for me. If the goal for me is to tuck my hair away for some time and not be bothered with it ( which is majority of our goals when we get weaves), this wouldn’t be ideal for me. But nonetheless, the style is HOT!

    I let someone do one in my head.. It looked NOTHING like this.. Maybe my hair wasn’t long enough
