Q. What is the recommended length of time to wear a weave/extensions?
A. Although every client may vary, I recommend that you wear your weave no longer than 2 to 3 months and extensions 4 to 5 months with proper care and maintenance. The weave itself may last longer, but the main focus is the health of your hair .
Q. What is the best way to shampoo my weave?
A. The easiest and best way to shampoo your weave is while in the shower. Make sure you keep the hair going straight back to minimize or prevent tangling.I also recommend using Joico Moisture Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner.
Q. How long does it take to get my weave installed?
A. It typically takes 4 to 6 hours, however this time frame varies from client to client , and also depends on any additionals service recieved.
Q. How many packs of hair do I need?
A. If you are purchasing hair from the beauty supply store, you can purchase 2 packs of hair ,although I normally use a pack and a half.
If you are buying your hair from a vendor you should purchase 2-3 bundles for a natural look, and 4-5 bundles for very long voluminous looks. It primarily depends on the density or length that you want your install. If you are unsure please ask before purchasing.
Q. What type of hair do you recommend for my weave?
A. I highly suggest using high quality hair for your install such as 100% Virgin Hair. If you are looking for a vendor please let us know because we now supply Virgin Hair to our clients, and if the hair is purchased with the sew in we can offer as a Package Deal.

Some brands of Remi Human hair ,which is found in the beauty supply store that is also suitable although you may experience more shedding and matting compared to the higher quality virgin hair. Some of the Remi brands that I suggest are Bobbi Boss Indi Remi ,Bobbi Boss First Remi, Remi Velvet, and Model Model.
