Some women are skeptical about if getting sew-ins can grow your hair or damage it. The truth is that sew-ins can absolutely grow your hair if you get them done correctly. You must take care of your real hair and make sure that it is healthy BEFORE you even think of getting a sew-in. If your hair is damaged, a sew-in will only make it worse. However, if your hair is already healthy, a sew-in can be a beautiful thing. Take this client of mine in the pictures below. She got a partial sew-in in February 2014 and this picture was taken inMay 2014, approximately three months later. She already has over two inches of new growth! She will be taking it down this month and getting it redone because she is on a quest to grow her hair back long.
The pictures show how much the braid has grown from the scalp. Remember, that when you get a sew-in the hair is braided to the scalp then the weave is sewn onto the braid. As the hair grows the braids become looser. If you look closely at the picture, the weave is still sewn onto the braid, but the new growth has made it become loose.
