You may agree with me that: Thanks to the development of techniques, there are various ways of installing extensions. It’s not just glue and sew-in methods which are considered to be the most popular. It seems that each passing year comes a new installation method for weave hair extensions.
But, what will happen if you use these methods without understanding them?
Don’t worry! In this article, we will discuss three main weave hair extension methods. From that, you can choose one that is suitable for you.
Let’s get started.
In my opinion, the glue-in method is the easiest way to wear your weave. However, it may be the most damaging method because it requires hair glue for the installation process.
There are two ways to apply the glue-in weave.The first way, you can glue in hair extensions by braiding your hair and gluing weaves directly on your real hair. If you don’t want to do like that, you can lay down your natural hair and put a weave cap over your head. The cap acts as a barrier between your natural hair and the glue. This style is also called a “quick weave”.
The method of glue in hair extensions can be a great option if you do it right. Make sure to follow our tips on how to do a quick weave in order to achieve great results with glue in hair extensions.
The sewing method offers a safer style. All you need to prepare for this style is just a needle and thread.
Remember that before sewing, your hair needs to be braided. There are many braid patterns for the sewing method, but the most common patterns are a circular style or straight back. You can choose any braid pattern depending on how you want your weave hair extensions to lay. You may want to consult with the person who is sewing your hair for the best direction.
After you finish braiding, you will need the needle and thread. Starting from either side of the hair’s nape, begin to sew the needle through the braid and pull the thread all the way out. Repeat this process until you have sewn in the whole weave.
In this method, the thread locks the tracks to the braid securely, so your hair will not be taken down itself. To remove these extensions, you only need to cut the thread out. Just be careful not to cut your own hair.
This method is not so popular as the two types mentioned above. However, for this method, you can save your money for the next trip instead of going to hair salons regularly.
To do the crochet method, you first need a crochet needle and braid your hair straight back. We suggest you have some big curly hair instead of straight hair because it can hide the visible appearance of the loop. All you need to do is to pull the needle through the braid, open latch on the needle, add hair and close latch. If you are not someone who doesn’t want to do hair, this method is for you. You can even do this method while watching your favorite movie.
In a nutshell, each method has its own purpose for different demands. So, which weave hair extension method is your favorite? Which method have you already tried or are curious to try out? Let’s share with us. We’d love to hear from you.
