Weave Hair Extensions - Everything You Need to Know
Are you looking for the ideal hair solution that will be easier to style and maintain without damaging your hairline or hair ends? Then weft hair extensions could be the best solution for you. Some people call them weft hair extensions while others call them weave hair extensions. Both terms refer to the same thing. It's only that the term weave’ is derived from the process of attaching weft to natural hair.
Weft/weave air extensions are sewn, braided, beaded, or weaved into your natural hair- they are not applied using a tape or clip system.
For people with damaged or weak hair, weft hair extension can be a great choice as they are safe (won’t damage your hair) and versatile.
Now that you have an idea of what weft hair extensions are, let's discuss the best weft/weave extensions in the UK.
The LA Weave extensions are kind to your hair and are very easy to maintain. They are sewn into your hair on a track of micro rings. You can get this weft hair extension sewn into your full head within one hour as just 2-3 rows of the extension are enough.
It attaches securely to your natural hair and feels very comfortable. What's more, the extensions are not visible, which means that you can tie your hair up, and no one will notice them. Unlike traditional braided weaves, which tend to be bulky, the LA Weave lay completely flat.
When attached, these weft extensions can serve you for 6-8 weeks, depending on your hair growth rate. And the better part is that you can have the same hair removed and refitted in just an hour.
If you get high-quality luxury hair extensions, such as the one we use from Beauty Works, you can reuse it for up to 9 months, as long as you take good care of it.
So, is LA Weave ideal for my hair?
As mentioned before, LA Weave is kind to your hair. Since it is attached to a few rows of your hair, the weft's weight is evenly distributed, which means that it will not damage your natural hair. After it is fitted, you will be given some aftercare advice- make sure you follow all the advice.
What’s the lifespan of LA Weave?
LA Weave extensions can serve you for 6-9 months. However, this depends on how well you take care of the weave. In fact, it can serve you for longer periods.
We usually recommend that you have them removed and refitted every 6-8 weeks to accommodate your hair growth.
How often should I wash my LA Weave?
As with any other hair extension, you should not wash your LA Weave daily. We usually recommend that you wash your hair once or twice a week. Use dry shampoo to wash LA Weave extensions for best results.
These are another popular weft hair extensions you can consider. They are ideal for any type of hair- thick or fine, bulky or flat, and are very gentle on the hair. Just like LA Weave, these too are reusable and don't damage your hair.
Once attached, they produce a thick, curtain-like look. We recommend that you have this hair extension moved up every 2 to 3 months, depending on the rate of hair growth.
How are they fitted?
The weft hair extensions are attached to your hair using silicone-lined micro-beads, which creates a track. After that, the weft is keenly sewn through the beads to support the weight of the extensions.
This should be done by an experienced professional to ensure that the weave extension doesn’t strain your hair and follicles.
If well fitted, Flat Track Weft Hair Extension produces a thick, natural-looking effect that is very easy to style.
It is important to mention that you may feel tightness on your head during the first week of wearing this extension. This is because they are applied firmly to ensure that they attach to your growing natural hair for as long as possible. Once it relaxes, you will enjoy your new weave. In fact, you will rarely notice you are wearing them.
Known for their longevity and versatility, Beaded Weft Hair Extension is one of the best weaves you can wear. They are easy to install as you will not need to apply tape, glue, chemicals, or heat to your hair.
The micro-beads are made with a lightweight silicone lining that minimizes the weight of the weave. This helps to prevent the extension from damaging your hair follicles. They come pre-installed on a machine-wafted track and are triple-stitched to ensure longevity.
To install them, a hairstylist compresses and loops small strands of your natural hair through the micro-beads. As mentioned earlier, this hair extension doesn't need chemicals, glue, or tape to attach, which means that there will be no mess.
What's more, the absence of glue or tape makes these weft hair extensions safe for your hair. It can be easily removed, without your natural hair getting damaged.
You should visit your hairstylist every 4 to 6 weeks to have the extension moved up to cover the portion of the hair that has regrown.
This beaded weft hair extension can be installed within one hour. With it, you can dye your hair without worrying that it will damage the parts of your hair attached to the weave, thanks to its thickness and density.
The Braided Weft is another extension that suits different types of hair. It is attached by using the oldest and most popular process whereby your natural hair is braided in small cornrows (horizontal lines) to create tracks. It is in these tracks that your natural hair will be attached to create a seamless, natural look.
Once attached, your hairstylist should dry your hair in small, horizontal sections. Keep in mind that it may take longer for your hair to dry since it is braided tight to your scalp and then to your hair extension.
It is also important to mention that this extension suits women with healthy hair- those with damaged hair or excessively weak hair should avoid this weave as the hair needs to be strong enough to hold this extension.
If you are looking for an easy way of styling your hair to create a more voluminous, natural-look, then weft hair extensions would be an excellent choice for you.
Many women are opting to fit weft hair extensions over other methods thanks to their comfort and minimal maintenance. Not to mention that weft hair extensions allow your hair to grow without damaging the follicles.
