Different kinds of hair weave

Sew-In Weaves
Sectioning the hair properly is very important because it can lessen the mobility of your weave and significantly decrease the appearance of hair tracks. Visible hair tracks are not appealing and make hair look artificial. Be sure to leave some of your hair out before braiding it. The amount of hair you leave out should be kept to a minimum but be enough to hide tracks and blend well into your own hair.

To begin a sew-in weave, your natural hair must be braided. There are two braiding techniques to choose from. Both beehive and straight-back techniques are used for applying sew-in extensions. The beehive consists of your natural hair being braided in a circular direction, starting at the right outermost corner of your hair line. The straight-back technique consists of hair being evenly parted vertically.

Once hair is properly braided, loose ends should be secured. Sew the loose ends of braids into the base of braids so that they do not remain hanging. By sewing loose ends you eliminate their visibility when attaching hair extensions.

Begin to sew hair horizontally from left to right. When reaching the end of a hair extension, tie a knot to secure it. Add as many layers of extensions as you desire. The more layers you add, the thicker your hair will appear to be.

Blend your own hair into the hair extensions. If your hair is thick, consider using a flat iron to straighten your hair texture. Using a thin-tailed comb, make sure that your natural hair covers any sign of a hair extension. Feel free to style your hair any way you like. Human hair extensions can be cut, colored, permed, relaxed and curled.

Fusion Weaves
Strand-bonding or “fusion” techniques have become extremely popular. Fused hair follicles are longer lasting than glue-applied extensions, but they can be equally damaging if not applied correctly. There are several ways to fuse loose hair strands. The most inexpensive way is to take small sections of hair and fuse it together using rubber band bonds. Professional fusing is normally done with adhesives, thermal bonding or cold bonding. All are methods used to fuse artificial hair to human hair follicles.

Glue-In Weaves
Glue-in weaves are the easiest to apply. They do not require you to know how to braid. The only major drawbacks to glued-in extensions are their damaging effects if not applied correctly. Glue can cause your hair to break. Also, if the glue is not removed properly it can cause hair loss. It is best to have someone else glue in your hair extensions. If you do it yourself, be sure to have two mirrors that allow you to see the back of your head clearly. Part hair horizontally and apply an even amount of glue along the extension track. The track of the extension will have thread in it. This will help you identify its location. Place track on the scalp and avoid getting glue onto the hair itself. If you do, don’t worry about it too much because there are glue removers available. Continue to apply extensions hair until you reach your desired level of fullness.

Drawstring Weaves
Drawstring weaves come in a variety of options and give women versatility. They also are not as stressful on hair follicles and can be easily removed because they do not require adhesives. The style that you can achieve using drawstrings can change day to day. Drawstring weaves are available for a variety of ponytails, buns, afros and different hair textures.

Half Weaves
Half weaves are attached using combs, similar to those found in a traditional wig. In a half weave, “half” of your natural hair is revealed and used to cover any detection of the artificial weave piece. This weave option allows greater mobility in style. For example, you may want a swoop bang on Monday, a middle part of Tuesday and a half-up, half-down style on Wednesday.

Custom Weaves
How to create a custom weave using a weave cap, mannequin, glue and plastic wrap:
1). Place plastic wrap on the entire head of the mannequin for full coverage.
2). For extra protection, cover the plastic cap with a weave cap.
3). Glue, using the technique from section 2, step 3.
4). Cut and style hair as you desire.
5). Remove weave cap from the mannequin and allow hair extensions to dry.
Now you can wear your custom wig.

Lace-Front Weaves
As the demand for human hair lace front wigs continues to increase in Hollywood, everyday women are becoming more intrigued because these weaves allow women to disregard their natural hair for four to six weeks.Women with damaged hair or hair loss use lace fronts to give their natural hair a restoration break. Hair growth can develop from the constant wear of lace-front wigs but hair loss around the hair edges or nape area will occur if not applied correctly.This can subsequently cause an unhealthy dependency on lace fronts weaves.

How to choose the best wholesale wig?

Hair type, quality, length, and color should be considered first when you purchase a wholesale wig. You should also find a reputable wholesaler and ask about minimum orders and return policies before purchase. If you’re unsure of what to look for or what wholesale wigs should cost, visiting retailers could give you a good idea of the quality to look for and what you can expect to pay.

When purchasing a wholesale wig, you should find out what type of hair it is made of. There are two types of wigs: one uses human hair while the other uses synthetic hair. A wholesale wig that is made from human hair will be more expensive, so if you’re on a budget you may find that a synthetic wig is the better option. If you decide to purchase a synthetic wig, ask for information on how to care for it and for safe methods of styling it.

The quality of the wig is another important consideration. Cheaper wholesale wigs may be of a much lower quality than more expensive ones. Signs of low quality include hair falling out and hair of a hard or coarse texture. Another sign of a low quality wig is mesh underneath that is visible through the hair.

The length of the wig is something you should look at as well. Shorter wigs are easier to care for and wear. If you prefer long wigs, keep in mind that the extra hair usually comes with a higher price tag. The length of the wig may also affect how you need to care for and store it.

Wigs could come in a number of colors. Choose one that flatters your skin tone to get a natural look. There are also wigs that come in bright colors. Some wholesale wigs even include highlights.

Finding a reputable wholesaler is important. You could check with the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints have been filed against a particular wholesaler. It’s also best to ask about minimum orders and how many units you’ll be expected to purchase to qualify for the wholesale price. Some wholesalers offer a quality guarantee and will replace faulty wigs, although you may be expected to pay for return shipping.

If you’re new to buying wholesale wigs, it may be best to visit local retailers to see what’s available and what kind of quality you should look for. Try looking at different brands, price ranges, and overall quality. Getting an idea of what retailers charge for a wig can give you a rough idea of what a fair price should be for a wholesale wig.

Female Pattern Hair Loss

The most common type of hair loss seen in women is androgenetic alopecia, also known as female pattern alopecia or baldness. This is seen as hair thinning predominantly over the top and sides of the head. It affects approximately one-third of all susceptible women, but is most commonly seen after menopause, although it may begin as early as puberty. Normal hair fall is approximately 100-125 hairs per day. Fortunately, these hairs are replaced. True hair loss occurs when lost hairs are not regrown or when the daily hair shed exceeds 125 hairs. Genetically, hair loss can come from either parents side of the family.

There are two different types of hair loss, medically known as anagen effluvium and Telogen effluvium. Anagen effluvium is generally due to internally administered medications, such as chemotherapy agents, that poison the growing hair follicle. Telogen effluvium, is due to an increased number of hair follicles entering the resting stage. The most common causes of Telogen Effluvium are:
Physical stress: surgery, illness, anemia, rapid weight change.
Emotional stress: mental illness, death of a family member.
Thyroid abnormalities.
Medications: High doses of Vitamin A, Blood pressure and Gout medications.
Hormonal causes: pregnancy, birth control pills, menopause.
When the above causes of telogen effluvium are reversed or altered you should see the return of normal hair growth.

Dietary Considerations
Hair loss may also occur due to dieting. Franchised diet programs which are designed or administered under the direction of a physician with prescribed meals, dietary supplements and vitamin ingestion have become popular. Sometimes the client is told that vitamins are a necessary part of the program to prevent hair loss associated with dieting. From a dermatologists’s standpoint, however, the vitamins cannot prevent hair loss associated with rapid, significant weight loss. Furthermore, many of these supplements are high in vitamin A which can magnify the hair loss.

Physical and Emotional Stress

Surgeries, severe illnesses and emotional stress can cause hair loss. The body simply shuts down production of hair during periods of stress since it is not necessary for survival and instead devotes its energies toward repairing vital body structures. In many cases there is a three month delay between the actual event and the onset of hair loss. Furthermore, there may be another three month delay prior to the return of noticeable hair regrowth. This then means that the total hair loss and regrowth cycle can last 6 months or possibly longer when induced by physical or emotional stress. There are some health conditions which may go undetected that can contribute to hair loss. These include anemia or low blood count and thyroid abnormalities. Both of these conditions can be detected by a simple, inexpensive blood test.

Hormonal Considerations
Hormonal changes are a common cause of female hair loss. Many women do not realize that hair loss can occur after pregnancy or following discontinuation of birth control pills. It is important to remember that the hair loss may be delayed by three months following the hormonal change and another three months will be required for new growth to be fully achieved.

Myths Related to Hair Loss
Frequent shampooing contributes to hair loss.
Hats and wigs cause hair loss.
100 strokes of the hair brush daily will create healthier hair.
Permanent hair loss is caused by perms, colors and other cosmetic treatments.
Women are expected to develop significant hair loss if they are healthy.
Shaving one’s head will cause the hair to grow back thicker.
Standing on one’s head will cause increased circulation and thereby stimulate hair growth!
Dandruff causes permanent hair loss.
There are cosmetic products that will cause the hair to grow thicker and faster.
Stress causes permanent hair loss.
Hair loss does not occur in the late teens or early twenties.
Hair loss affects only intellectuals.

These are only a few of the common myths heard by physicians and other hair loss specialists on a daily basis. The American Hair Loss Council suggests that you first have your hair loss diagnosed by a competent dermatologist who sees hair loss patients on a regular basis. Once you know the diagnosis you will have a better understanding of exactly which treatment option may be best for you.

African American Wigs

Instructions

1

Measure your head to find out what size hairpiece you will need. Wrap a seamstress measuring tape around your head, placing the tape at your forehead, just above the eyebrows, and bring the tape around one side of the head and follow your hairline. When the tape has reached just above the ears, tuck the tape behind your ears to follow the hairline. Bring the tape around to the other side of your head, up from behind the ear and meeting the beginning of the tape at your forehead.

According to HeadCovers.com, if your head is 20 inches or smaller, you should wear a child-sized hairpiece. If your head is 21 inches or smaller you will fit into a petite hairpiece. The average wig will fit anyone with a head of 21.5 inches to 22.5 inches. A head larger than 22.5 inches will need a large hairpiece.
2

Choose what style you would like for your wig. You can select short bobs, long straight hair, long curly hair or wavy mid-length hair. Whatever you like (or whatever you have always wanted), you can purchase. Many wig shops will have hundreds of different styles of wigs to choose from.

3

Choose the color you’d like. There are several ways you can do this: You can pick out a color you’ve always wished you had, match your natural hair to a wig or match an old wig’s color to a new one. Many wig sites will help you find the perfect color by matching a sample of your hair to their wigs, matching a wig to a picture you can email to them, or by sending you a hair-color wheel.
4

Go to a local wig and hair shop and start trying the wigs on. Take a trustworthy friend or family member with you to get honest advice. Sit down in front of a mirror and begin trying on any wig you like.
