Weave 101: What You Should Know Before You Purchase

Looking to add a little length to your mane this fall? We’ve got you covered with our expert’s top selections for extensions by both the pack and the ounce. Let’s start with the basics so the next time you visit the hair store or order online, the overwhelming selection of colors, textures, and lengths won’t be so intimidating.

Finding high quality hair is a very important step if you want an undetectable natural look. You want your hair to look beautiful and last the expected length of time without tangling or shedding. A lot of variables are factored in when choosing which hair is right for you. You have to consider your budget, the style you want, your own hair texture, and the maintenance it takes to keep up your look.–mckenzie harris

When choosing the right extensions, here’s what to look for:

GET hair that does not tangle or matte. Physically touch the hair and run your fingers through it to see what it feels like and if there is any shedding.

TAKE a close look at the hair’s texture and compare to your own if you plan to mix them. You want the closest match possible, so if your hair tends to be a little more coarse, go for extensions that have a coarse texture, and vise versa.

BLEND, it is key. Like we stated above, watch out for extra silky and shiny hair that overtime may be difficult to blend with your natural texture.

-If the store permits, see how well the hair takes to heat. Most hair stores have mannequin heads with hair already sewn on. Ask for a demonstration to see how well straight hair holds a curl and how well curly hair straightens out.
