For some, quick weaves have gained a bad reputation. Mainly because it damages the natural hair from applying and removing the weave. However, quick weaves can be a trendy, easy way to attain glamorous hair in a short amount of time if you do it right. Here is everything you should know about quick weaves.
1. What Is A Quick Weave?
A simple weave is a type of weaving where hair wefts are directly glued to a protective weave cap put on your head before bonding. You can do this style at home or have a professional stylist done it.
Like a sew-in weave, hair is braided in cornrows or plaits. You can also use a hardening glue to tie the hair down instead of braiding it. The protective cap is placed over the hair, which provides glue coverage, then hair extensions are cut and glued to the cap. When put on the protective cap, each weft must be blow-dried or air-dried to ensure a successful application Wefts are attached up to the completion of the desired look.
Quick weaves have become a trend because the sew-in weave is commonly known as the cheaper, faster choice. They have a lot of advantages but the simplicity of the style is one of its main highlights. Whether you’re a working professional, a busy mom, or both, quick weaves are a great alternative for a relatively short, flattering look.
Quick weaves can also give your natural hair less tension. Unlike sew-in weaving, which the natural hair needs to be tightly corned with hair extensions, quick weaves are absolutely different. They can use gel or a non-traditional loose braiding pattern that can work better for those looking for a less strenuous hairstyle.
However, quick weaves are low maintenance. A quick weave can also last up for 4 weeks. If you take care of it well, it may be longer. You should clean it at least once a month and deep-conditioned.
2. How To Apply
Although applying a quick weave seems to be easy, not everyone can do it in the right way. This leads to a problem that your hair will be damaged. Let’s follow these steps to get a perfect quick weave.
- Braid natural hair and leave out either a side or a center part. There is no need for cornrows or plaits to be perfect. Use molding gel to slick down and wrap hair if you feel uncomfortable with braiding.
2. Put the protective cap on your head and completely cover your hair. An important tip for this step is that if you have a part or leave it out, use a lip or concealer pencil to trace the part onto the weave cap. This will prevent a track from sticking too close to your leave out area.
3. Glue on hair wefts from the back of the head to the front. Cut the protective cap around the area where you have your part and follow the outline of your lip or concealer pencil if you leave hair out for a center part or side part.
- Finally, cut and styles your hair extension
3. How To Maintain And Remove
Using a scarf or cap to cover extensions at night helps to reduce hair tangling and matting. If you have a curly weave, you can also maintain the curl by applying rollers or pinning the hair while you sleep. You can wash and use products on quick weaves but be careful when using products based on oil because oil can loosen the glue on quick weaves.
Quick weaves can be not only applied but also taken out easily. You should start by massaging your hair with oil or conditioner, leaving the mixture in for a few minutes. The oil will loosen the glue so you can remove the track easily.
