Hair weave!
« on: 16 Jun 13 / 11:16 PM »
Sooo finally I have pics for you!
Had it in nearly a week, I took some ibuprofen before I had it fitted as it can be very tight and a bit painful but I found it fine. Sleeping for the first few nights was slightly uncomfortable but it's much better now as the weft can move a bit more.

So they basically braid a cornrow across your head, left to middle then right to middle, then sew the weft on!
If I could cornrow I'd be doing this all the time on everyone haha!

Washing my hair is an experience/chore, it's soooo heavy in the shower!! You're supposed to let it air dry but I have this weird thing where I can't stand my hair being wet it makes my skin crawl! I let it dry for a while, then blow dried it, the air dried, then blow dried,etc... The thing that drove me round the bend was the fact that the braid and weft were damp and itchy!! So I had to focus on drying them with the hair dryer to stop me going insane.



So my sewing was a big crap here, I sewed the wefts together and my machine hated it but oh well haha only you guys will see it!!



My hair was quite gross here as it was sooo humid and groggy outside!!

I'd never have anything like this done myself as the only form of extensions I like is wool dreads, but the added length looks nice on you :)

Haha yes! Well, no not really actually ;) it does get itchy though. I think it'll be weird to see the natural shed when I take it out though. I think I'll keep it in for 4 weeks :) I used my sleep in rollers the other night, most uncomfortable night ever HA

I have hair envy right now! the length looks so real too! I'd love this done but I get headaches so easily from just my clip ins, so not being able to eaisly take them out and put them back in would be a pain for me I think. I love how vibrant your pink is Meesh!

Oooooo! It looks really well blended and natural!  I've never worn clip-in extensions (other than the clip on ponytails that is!), so I have no constructive comments on ease of wear, etc!  But it does look fab!

Wow that looks amazing!! I am so jealous, i miss having long mermaid hair so much!!

How many rows did you have put in and how many grams of hair was it? I'm terrified of proper extensions after my nightmare with the micro loops pulling mine out but I'd imagine with a weave the weight of the hair is better spread out so you'll lose less hair from it?

There's only three rows and the hair was double wefted because the extensions weren't that good lol! They are my tester ones so they are quite dry and pants really. I'd re buy some if I wanted to have it done again.
They don't seem to pull my hair that much but I think here will be quite a lot of shedding when I take them out. I've shed quite a lot of hair (fake) so I think for nights out etc I'm going to clip in three more wefts inbetween :) my sisters getting hers done too :D

Sadly I'm not sure I'd be able to hide three rows in my hair (its really fine) I can only hide two rows of clip ins. I think I'm just gonna stick with my clip ins for now - I just bought two new really long sets that I can double weft and dye blue.

My hair is really fine too, the first weft is only a few nicest long at the base of my neck. If you can wear clip ins you can deffo get weaved lol :) the braid is smaller than a cm so doesn't take away too much hair either.

Ahh this is awesome, looks much more comfortable than my microbeads too! May have to consider it!
My best friends girlfriend is mixed race, I was talking to her the other day about extensions and she has her whole head weaved! I didnt even know, she has nice, long, straight hair, with a long, swoopy fringe, but apparently her actual hair is a massive afro! So an option for really really fine hair could be to gat it all done!

That's interesting, I didn't know you could do that either!! I'm happy with my clips for now but if I'm ever brave enough to foray into more permanent extensions again this sounds like the way to go! :)

Amy how long have you had your micro loop / bead extensions in for now?

I only kept them in for a few months, they annoyed me so much, they kept getting tangled and matted, and keeping them neat made my damage my own hair with heat styling etc.

Did you find they had done any damage when you took them out? I lost loads of my hair (but I do have very fine hair which was quite damaged at the time so I'm interested to see how other people get on with them)

Quite a bit of hair came out when I took them out, but I'm sure that was just the natural shed that had been held into the beads. My hair wasn't too bad, It was a bit dry from all the heat styling and stuff, but it got back to normal after a few deep conditioning treatments.

So I took my hair out last night! My real hair had grown loads in the month so the braids were starting to drop out a bit!
They took about 30 mins if that to take out, I got Jon to help me as I couldn't really see what I was doing! As a heads up to anyone who's thinking of getting it done, or has one that they want to take out, a seam ripper is the best thing for carefully snipping the thread. So much easier than small scissors!
I have no damage from the extensions, a fair amount of natural hair came out when i brushed it, but it was the natural shedding which wasn't able to escape from the braids.
My hair feels weird, I feel like I'm bald because my head is loads lighter!!
Overall I can't wait to get the done again as they were pretty low maintenance for me, but started to matt up near the end of the month as the extensions I took her were a bit damaged and naff. I'm going to buy some decent ones for next time! The only negative thing for me was that is took forever for the hair to dry when I had washed it!
