Glue-in: This is the best technique for short term and most natural looking weaving; however, this is the worst technique for the care of your hair. The glue can take out large amounts of hair if not installed or taken out properly. Moreover, it will only last you a week to two weeks.
Quick-Weave: They say it is a quick way to weave but the time it takes to mold the hair is not quick. Also this is another weaving technique that is horrible for the care of your hair. Your natural hair can not breath due to it being molded down on top of the glue used on top if not healthy.
Sew-In. Healthiest weave technique when installed properly. It allows the hair to breath. Braids will allow the hair to grow. It is also is the best pattern for wearing the weave for long periods of time.
This isn't a question more like a comment. I was on youtube searching for thriting videos, because I've been very interested in the whole idea of it all. Guess who's video i found? yours! and I didn't even know it was you until I went to your page. I was like HEY! she's on my tumblr! Great thifting video btw.
When it comes to sewing in, make sure you have a secure braiding pattern
I prefer to braid my hair in a braid pattern that goes straight to the back, Its about 8 braid going to the back of my head. This pattern is better than the S-pattern or circle pattern because when your combing, curling, and etc it wont pull the braid down. Also and most importantly, it makes the weave lay flatter which makes it looks more realistic.
For those leaving in a long-term sew-in, I highly suggest using kankelon (sp) braiding hair. The braiding hair helps keep your braids secure way longer than using your own hair. The braiding hair prevents the braid from becoming loose after lots of washing and etc which will allow the sew-in to last longer.
Also weave nets/caps are also great ways to keep the braiding pattern secure for longer periods of time. The downfall to the net/caps is that you cant clean or oil your hair easily because of the covering.
To guard against heat styling damage and friction, spray this multi-use protective spray to keep your hair shiny and incredibly soft. It’s a fantastic tool for instantly transforming all hair textures, enhancing hairs’ flexibility to reform and hold shape.
Also, the moisture-locking vitamin complex hydrates and is heat-activated to guard against harsh styling damage.
Spray liberally 6-8 inches away from mid-shaft to ends. Its trigger spray offers easy misting.
Use both on damp hair before you blow-dry and on dry hair before curling or flat ironing to shield hair from damaging heat.

When you’re considering getting a weave, think about how long you anticipate leaving it in.
If it is for a short period of time, do not waste your money buying really expensive hair. Regular human hair or low grade remy will due if your keeping it in for about 1-4 weeks.
If you are planning on having a weave in for longer than a month or planning on reusing the weave, buy more expensive/higher grade hair such as virgin remy.
I typically leave my weaves in for long period of time so I always buy virgin indian remy hair. I buy my hair by the oz. Currently I have 8 oz of virgin indian remy hair. It did run about $400 but it has no chemical processing and comes straight from the donor head. I am still using the same hair and this is my 4th month with the hair.
