WEAVE TERMS AND TIPS FOR BEGINNERS
The weave world is amazing for what it is! Oh what’s up! Hey y'all and welcome back to my channel. I'm going to be giving the basic tips and terminology that you need to know. So, let's jump right in!
probably the most basic saying that you definitely need to know is what tracks are! tracks are literally just the base of the weed and tracks and wefts are the same thing. Okay? tracks and wefts are the same thing. a Weft hair is just the hair that is being sewn together to make the extension. now with West you can either get single wefted or double wefted. single is going to be a little bit thinner. it's going to be more natural you know? I recommend a single weft because it will make your hair look flatter. double wefted is going to be thicker. and you can either get it machine wefted or hand wefted. Now, i also would recommend machine Wefted because the machine is going to make the tracks more secure versus hand wefting. In hand Wefting you're probably going to experience more shedding.
Now the next important thing that you need to know is what pieces and lots. because I know that when you're looking for hair when it says how many pieces do you want, you’re like how many pieces? I want a lot of weave! pieces are literally bundles. that is , that is all. when they say pieces they mean bundles.
A lot is the amount of bundles that are sold together. Usually you get three bundles per lot so two lots, six bundles. three Lots, nine bundles so on and so forth. How did you know that, the next most important thing you need to know is density. Very important that you need to make sure that you not walking out here with three bundles and 24 inches and it's looking like straw. You need to make sure that it's flowing and it's thick It’s bouncy so when it's time you know! The density ranges from 90% to 200%. 90 don't ever get 90 percent! unless you want some thin ass hair, you should be looking for hair between 100 and 150 percent density. a hundred percent is still on the thinner side. between 120 and 130 percent, that's like the most natural health realistic look of what your real hair would be. and then I usually get 150 percent density because that is like natural but it's thicker. if you are trying to get some like long ass hair, like 24, 26 inches, then you need to get 180 percent density so that you can ensure that even though it's long you're still going to have that same you know thickness throughout.
So now that you understand those basics, the next thing you need to know is the types of hair there are. the Three main types of hair you need to know of are: the virgin hair, remy hair and synthetic hair. Remy and virgin hair, they're similar but they are definitely not the same. Virgin hair is completely natural, its unprocessed hair , it's like straight from a ponytail. They take it, cut it, boom! It’s unprocessed, natural hair , not touch-type hair. Remy hair, it is human hair as well however, it doesn't come from the same person. It's going to come from a bunch of different people and usually there is a chemical added to it. So like whether it's permed or colored or whatever the case may be and the remy hair also has the cuticles intact. Now synthetic hair I mean obviously I'm not going to recommend synthetic hair unless you are just want something really quick or like a quick cheap wig like just something quick and on the go. but synthetic hair is fake hair everyone knows that on these plastic fibers that actually come from acrylic that they heat up and they stretch out.
Now that you know the three types of hair, there's a bunch of different ways that you can get hair sewn in. But the top three are regular, you know, sewing with leave out of frontal and a closure. Now there is definitely a difference between a frontal and a closure. A lot of people don't know the difference. A frontal goes from ear to ear and it's to recreate your entire like hairline. You can either get you know the frontal just for the front or you can get a 360 frontal that's going to go all the way around your hair; so that you can wear it. But if you get the 360, then you know its got to cover up the kitchen.
Then, you also have a closure. A closure is usually either 2 by 2 or 4 by 4. And it is just to recreate your natural part. So you can either you know, put it right here to do the middle part, or you can move it shift it a little bit to one side or the other or a side part. Frontals and closures are really good for protective styles, when say, you're beaded-out starts to break off.
So now that you know those basics, now you need to choose the hair type that you want. Now there's so many hair types to choose. From Brazilian, Peruvian, Indian, Malaysian, Mongolian, Russian, Cambodian, the list goes on and on. However, the top three that I would personally recommend are: Indian, Peruvian and Cambodian. I love Peruvian. I have had Peruvian straight hair plenty of times and I’ve recommended it to friends. They got it, they loved it. I had Indian Deep curly, if you haven't seen my hair review that I did on the Indian deep curly hair that I had and still have. I've had it for a year now and it's still popping. I've also tried out the Cambodian curly and straight hair. Love both of those as well. I haven’t really tried out Eurasian and I haven't tried out Russian, but I'm going to try out Russian next because I keep on hearing good things about it so. I'm going to have to check that one out.
So once you figure out the type of hair you want, you need to figure out the texture of hair that you want. And there is a bunch of textures as well! We have straight, loose wave, body wave, water wave, deep wave, deep curly, kinky curly, The lists just goes on and on and on.
So now, I believe I've equipped you with enough terminology and tips for you to be able to purchase whatever weave out there that suits you best. I hope you all enjoyed this video. Thank you all for tuning in again to KC TV. I'll see you guys next time.
