If you are looking to change your hairstyle, give your natural hair a break from perms and coloring, or if you are a weave diva and just want to try something new, hair's the deal with weaving hair. Let's take an up close and personal look weaving hair so you can make a wise and informed decision with your next purchase.
To Leave Out or Not to Leave Out
First you must decide if you want a full sew-in or if you prefer leaving some of your own hair out to blend with your weave. Tread lightly with this because here's where one of the biggest mistakes in the industry is often made. Hair that doesn't match in texture or color often results in a hot mess, unless you like that look. Of course you can perm and color your own hair to match your weave, but do you really want to go through the hassle of doing all of that? Some don't mind and that's okay. Be sure if you are leaving some of your natural hair out that it blends well.
What Type of Hair/Style Do You Want
This can be tricky, if you're new to the weave game. Do you want to go shorter with 8, 10, or 12 inches, or would you prefer a dramatic change with a 20, 22, 24 inch? It's all a matter of personal preference, but keep these three things in mind: 1) The longer the weave the more hair you will need. 2) Not sure about the length, grab a ruler or tape measure and measure the length from the nape of your neck. Of course, it can be cut, if desired. 3) Depending on your style, you may have to do just as much if not more to maintain your look on a daily basis. If you want a style where you can get up and go maybe choose something with some texture to it might work well.
A weave doesn't mean you don't have to do anything. All hairstyles require some type of maintenance, but if you're the type of doesn't mind curling their hair every morning or setting rollers at night, a straight or loose curl would work well. If you like to get up and go, perhaps something with a curl might be a better option.
What is Your Budget
Here's where some people fail miserably. You walk into a hair supply store and see that advertisement of human hair for $9.99 for 20, 20 inches and you lose your mind. It's the deal of the century and you want in on it, right. But hold on for a second - is this real hair or a "blend"? That's right they're now mixing human with synthetic hair and calling it a blend mix or Mastermix, so be careful when choosing your hair.
The extreme opposite are the hair bundles behind the counter. Oh these must be really special because they are keeping them safe, right. Well just because the price tag says $$89.99, $129, or even $149.99 (yes, some hair does cost that much - and for one bundle), doesn't mean that you are getting the best bang for your buck.
Here are a few questions to ask or just do the research yourself. The Internet is a powerful tool so take advantage of it:
1) What is the brand of hair?
2) How much hair comes in the package or bundle vs. how much will I need?
3) What are others saying about this type of hair?
4) How long will it last?
Remember, just because it's on display behind the counter doesn't mean that it's the best deal. Remember beauty supply stores have a huge markup, while online stores don't have as much overhead, so they can keep their prices lower. Check the prices, the amount of hair, and even online reviews, and then compare a few different brands before you make your decision.

If you have been looking for a hair treatment that fixes frizz and leaves hair smooth and shiny, you may be wondering: what is Brazilian Blowout? There is a lot of hype over this popular hair treatment, both from the media and from happy clients. Since I have always been plagued by frizzy, dry, unmanageable hair, I went on a search to find out as much information as I could about Brazilian Blowout.
Brazilian Blowout is a process of hair straightening/hair smoothing. The process is supposed to condition hair, seal the cuticle, and actually improve the health of hair rather than damage hair, as many chemical treatments do.

It works on all hair types and creates a protective protein layer around the hair shaft.
There is nothing worse than running out of hair right in the middle of an install. A good stylist will tell you right from the start that you do not have enough hair, but if you're at home doing it yourself, it's 10 PM and you're running out of hair, what do you do?
Most of us will wrap it up for the night and head to the local hair store first thing in the morning so we can buy more hair. Now if you ordered your hair offline, you may not be able to find the exact match, but usually pretty close. And if you purchased your hair at a significant savings online -- well that savings goes right out the window when you have to pay full price, all because you didn't order enough.
I can't stress enough - DO YOUR HAIR HOMEWORK! Find out how much hair comes in a bundle! It's better to have more and not need it than to run out in the middle of an install.
How Much Hair Should I Buy
Weaving hair is measured by grams or ounces. The better hair companies have bundles 3.5-4 ounces/100 grams or more. Other hair companies may lessen the amount in a bundle, but charge the same price. Read the fine print for in-store and online purchases.
Shorter lengths (12″, 14″, 16) typically have more length on the weft requiring less hair for a full sew-in. Longer lengths (18″ 20″ 22″) carry more weight with their vertical length, so the amount of hair on the weft horizontally will less.
It is important to check and double check how much hair comes in a bundle when ordering online or making an in-store purchase.
The basic rule of thumb is a full head (having your entire head weaved with no hair or minimal hair left out) will require 2-3 bundles for the shorter lengths, while longer hair will require 3-4 bundles.
