Weaves and wigs are now about as common as MacDonald's cheeseburgers. White, Black, Asian and Hispanic women alike can revamp their do's with adding weave.
The well known methods for applying weave are:
Hair Clips- simple and quick way to attach weave by a clip (can easily fall out, not for long term)
Hair Bonding- using hair glue (which I absolutely hate, since it does major damage and is sticky/hard to get out)
Sew-Ins- using a hair needle and hair thread to sew in weave to cornrows (I usually do this method for my clients)
Hair Fusion- the use of a keratin based polymer (cold fusion) or a hot glue (hot fusion) to tightly bond and blend weave to hair (although this is quite costly).
Now there's a new method called Flexi-Strands. They're simple, you just braid it into the hair, and they last long. I don't know much about this method yet, and it doesn't seem readily available yet. If you've had this done, please leave feedback!
