My Kinky Curly Weave| Deets About the Hair

in my hair, weave

In a previous post, I shared that I was considering getting a weave.  The time has come!  I’ve always admired a member of Long Hair Care Forum, Ediese.  For years I considered her the queen of kinky curly weaves lol.  She used these weaves as a protective style which helped her to grow her hair to admirable lengths. Check out my FLY FOTKI page and you will find a link to Ediese’s Fotki album (at the very bottom in the middle).

Cue LexiWithTheCurls and GlamSwagger and their recent and gorgeous kinky curly weave installs.

Though I admire these styles I’ve always been hesitant of venturing into the land of weave because it is so darn expensive! But I’ve decided to suck it up and shell out the bucks!

This is 18″ Mongolian Tight Kinky Curly 3c/4a from Onyc Hair. Immediately out of the baggy, the hair was noticeably lighter than my hair so I decided to dye it a darker color so that it would match my hair a little better.

Following the directions on the package of Dark and Lovely, I colored the wefts.  It was pretty easy to do and it took 2 boxes.

Above you will see a portion of the hair which appears somewhat darker than the rest of the hair, that is the test patch I completed before coloring the entire weft.

This pic is jut a reminder of what my current texture looks like (when wet), but of course my hair does not dry like this without the help of products.  This pic was taken from my latest regimen post.

Hello,
Did you seal the wefts? If not how much shedding did you experience with this hair? Im trying to figure out if I should go ahead and seal the wefts or if i shouldnt really worry about it. I plan on keeping the hair in for up to 3 months. Also, when you installed did you used 1 1/2 or 2 packs of 18 inch hair?

Hi Danielle, Shedding was not a big issue. Actually it really only started to shed after the second install in which the wefts were cut. The shedding wasn’t anything more than what my hair normally sheds. Pretty manageable. 1.5 packs were used on my head.

Wow, this is the deal that I got from Amazon for my hair weave: http://amzn.to/JGAbBp – way cheaper than I buy locally with free shipping on top of that. So excited, I just had to share this link with someone.

Weave doesn’t help your hair grow. Keeping your hair protected from manipulation allows you to retain more hair and have less breakage. Hope that makes sense.
