Mastering the Art of Quick Weaves: Installation, Maintenance, and Styling Tips

Quick weaves are BACK, and have become a popular and efficient way to achieve beautiful, versatile hairstyles without the long-term commitment. The GWORLS like to switch it up, OK!!! 💁‍♀️

This method involves attaching hair extensions to a protective cap, which is then glued or bonded to your natural hair. In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore the installation method, the essential products needed, maintenance tips, and tricks for concealing those hair extension tracks flawlessly.

Installation Method:

Step 1: Prep Your Hair

  • Start with clean, dry hair.
  • If you have longer hair, consider braiding it or securing it in flat twists to create a smooth base.

Step 2: Protective Cap

  • Choose a breathable and comfortable wig cap that matches your skin tone.
  • Secure the cap over your natural hair, ensuring it fits snugly.

Step 3: Bonding or Gluing

  • Apply a protective barrier like petroleum jelly around your hairline to prevent the adhesive from sticking to your skin.
  • Use a quality bonding glue or hair extension glue to attach the wefted hair to the cap.

Step 4: Install the Wefts

  • Start at the back and work your way up, gluing the wefts in a horseshoe pattern.
  • Ensure the wefts are close together for a seamless look.

Step 5: Cut and Style

  • Trim the extensions to your desired length and style as desired.

Products Needed:

  1. Wig Cap: Choose a comfortable and breathable cap that matches your skin tone.
  2. Bonding or Glue: Opt for a high-quality bonding glue or hair extension glue.
  3. Hair Extensions: Select wefted hair in your preferred length, color, and texture from She’s Happy Hair.
  4. Protective Barrier: Use petroleum jelly or a similar product to protect your skin from adhesive.
  5. Scissors: Sharp scissors for trimming and styling.

Maintenance Tips:

  1. Wrap it Up: Before sleeping, wrap your quick weave in a satin or silk scarf to prevent tangling and friction.
  2. Avoid Heat Damage: Limit the use of heat styling tools to preserve the longevity of your quick weave.
  3. Regular Wash: Cleanse your scalp and weave regularly, using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to maintain freshness.
  4. Gentle Detangling: Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the hair, starting from the tips and working your way up.

Tips for Concealing Tracks:

  1. Choose the Right Color: Match the extension color to your natural hair for a seamless blend.
  2. Strategic Placement: Install wefts close together, especially around the perimeter, to conceal tracks effectively.
  3. Camouflage with Styling: Experiment with hairstyles that naturally cover the tracks, such as loose curls, waves, or braids.
  4. Blend with Your Natural Hair: Integrate your natural hair with the extensions by leaving some sections out around the edges for a more natural look.

Conclusion:

Mastering the art of quick weaves opens up a world of hairstyling possibilities. By following the installation method, using the right products, implementing maintenance tips, and employing tricks to conceal tracks, you can achieve a flawless and fabulous look that suits your style. Experiment with different textures, colors, and styles to unleash your creativity and enjoy the versatility that quick weaves offer.
