A weave that is too thick isn't natural looking and can tangle easily, but a thinned out weave flows, looks natural and is low maintenance. Hairstylists and extension wearers know that in order to have a nice looking weave it must be thin, and kept clean and tight. Knowing how to thin out a weave is a skill most hairstylists have, but, in case your stylist isn't skilled in that area, you can learn to thin out your own weave.
Section off the hair weave. Starting at the back section off each part of weave. Use scissors to remove one weave extension. This will cut down on the bulkiness. Continue removing one track until only single weave extensions are left in the hair.
Thin the weaved hair by cutting the ends. Having shorter hair will make your weave appear thinner and lighter. Starting at the back, trim ends a quarter inch until you reach a desired length.
Thin the weave using thinning shears. Thinning shears have one side that is a scissor and one side that is a comb. Going in layers, thin your weave with the shears in a downward motion. Comb the hair as you go, making sure layers are even and lay flat on top of each other. Keep the weave longer in the back and shorter in the front.
