    Select the extensions and threads:

    Go to a nearby cosmetics shop, where you can find different types of hair available. Here, you will want to use black here. However, do not pick the black hair without matching them with your own, as there are different shades in black colour too. When you find the right extensions, buy threads that will be used to tie the extensions with your original hair. Moreover, the colour of the threads should also be similar to the colour of the hair. For each track that you plan to create with the extensions, you must have three threads.

    Adding extensions:

    Divide your hair in small locks and create small braids of the locks created, by using a small section of the thread. This will be used as the base of the extension, or “pole”.  The pole will allow your hair to keep away from damage, as the extensions will hand from the scalp of your hair.

    Weaving the extensions:

    Use curved needles to sew the extensions with the base you created. Take a small piece of thread and wrap it around the joint you created. Then insert the curved needle into the joint to strengthen it. At the end, lay a track against the pole and wrap the thread over the joint and make it tight. The whole process should be repeated for all the locks you created in the beginning.
