Before embarking on getting a weave, allow me to start by asking, “Just how to tell when your are looking at a good weave. Well the correct answer is, “A good weave is undetectable”.
Having a quality weave necessarily means we cannot tell if we are looking at a weave! If ever you are asked, “I love your hair; who does your weave?” or worse, “I love your weave; who did it?”. The saying that goes, “You get what you pay for” is absolutely true. Now, on the other hand, if you are getting a lot of, “I love your hair; how do you get it like that?”, then chances are you’ve got them fooled. (Visit us: Here)
So, let’s start with rule num
ber 1: Getting the right hair.
In so doing, it is crucial that you find a great hair distributor. Please note, we are not referring to the hair gotten at the beauty supply store on the corner.
I have learned after so many years doing hair that brand name weaving hair is not the
best place to get quality hair. To get your hands on virgin, authentic hair, it must be purchased from a distributor who gets the hair wefted by hand.
Keep in mind that the only process done to one hundred percent virgin hair is cleaning and NOTHING else. (Find more hair care info: Here).
Good hair will last through multiple weave sessions which, in the long run, saves time and money. Virgin hair as opposed to synthetic hair can be colored without the color damaging the hair. If you are at a loss for where to find quality, virgin hair, your stylist should be able to assist you.
Beware of hair from a pack and beware of popular brands. Investing in quality hair that will not started forming bird’s nests and that looks real is a worthwhile investment.
Hair gotten from supply stores will inevitable contain yak or animal hair. This hair will tangle and mat forcing you to take out the weave you paid for way before you would like to.
Also, know that hair that has been processed to appear more course will cause the strands to weaken the hair quality. Examine the strand diameter and feel it. You can find quality hair in a variety of textures from a reputable hair distributor. Just do your homework and seek professional guidance.
Ensure you shampoo at least once a month to clean your own scalp and to remove product and oil from the weave hair which will, if not removed, deteriorate the weave hair quality.
Lastly, if you have curly weave hair, use conditioner. For straight or fine hair little to no conditioner is needed.
