BUYING HAIR


June 11, 2015 ... One of the biggest things people know me for other than being on television is giving my HONEST opinion on what hair to buy that will give you your BEST desired result. NYC Weave Studio now sells 100% REAL VIRGIN HAIR. With virgin hair the wave patterns and shades of the hair will vary slightly as it is REAL hair that has not been processed. The hair is beautiful and I am excited to offer you great hair at affordable prices.

 

 If you are not sure what to order send a photo of "the look" you want to achieve and I can guide you on your purchase. 


The average size head requires three bundles of hair. Not leaving any hair out? Choose a lace closure piece to accompany your bundles.


*With most vendors when purchasing hair keep in mind that the longer the length of the hair you buy the less they give you. This is usually true for hair 16 inches and longer.


 

 



HAIR TIPS



*When purchasing hair keep in mind that the longer the length of the hair you buy the less they give you. This is true for hair 16 inches and longer.


*When removing an install its best to saturate the braid with olive oil (any kind) prior to loosening the braid and combing. Please do not use conditioner for this step as most have too much water added and will make removal difficult and may make your natural hair tangle.


*For less tangles and shedding with your weave buy a better grade of hair. It is always better to purchase hair by the ounce from TRUSTED vendors. For hair brands from the beauty supply store (although NEVER recommended) purchase remy hair rather than "human like" or blended hair.

*Keep heavy grease, pore clogging oil and stiff sprays away from your weave. The hair will tangle and mat with the application of too many hair products. 

*Suggested hair products for weave: You can CO-wash (conditioner wash) with most brands of conditioner. My favorite is silicon mix but be sure to rise well or the hair will not dry well.

Silicon free shampoo


Dry Shampoo is great for closure pieces  

Edge control by Olive Oil to keep edges/hairline smooth 

*If tracks come loose visit NYC Weave Studio to have them tightened up. 

*Two Strand Twist curly and wavy patterns, if your natural hair is left out include it in with the twist to match up natural hair pattern with weave hair, then cover with silk or satin bonnet.

*Use leave in conditioner infusium 23, Diva Curl and Bee Mine products  on wet and wavy weave hair to keep the wave pattern looking natural.

*When laying down wrap your hair with a head scarf, cover hair with a silk or satin bonnet or clip long hair weave towards the top of head for those with body curls or spirals.

*Stay away from hair that looks bad in the package (ex: too shiny, shedding before applied, colors or curl patterns that do not look natural).

*Be aware of MOST hair websites that offer deals  to good to be true as that usually indicates that their hair vendor is poor quality. This may mean that the hair has not been cleaned properly and you risk damage from lice, chemically treated hair or hair that has a corn chip like odor that will never go away.

*Usually when you purchase hair in the package there is a picture of how the hair looks when it is applied. If you do not like that photo chances are you will not like the hair once it is applied.

*To match hair, hold the weave up to your own hair in natural sunlight. 

*To save money buy hair two inches different in length. (ex: one pack of 12" and one pack of 14") you can create natural layers and save by not having to have your hair layered and not paying for the price of two 14" packs of hair.

*It is best and wise to use hair sold by the ounce and can be re-used.

*I NEVER recommend any hair supply stores that you wait while the hair is wefted. Yes it can be blended to your color/texture specifications but the hair is mixed with other fibers that are not from humans (you've been warned)

*if you have a sewn down closure made of JUST weft hair,  put a little heat on it with your flat iron to keep it looking natural, Use a back mirror and check the top of your hair daily to make sure you are styling your weave properly.
