Quick Weave…Slow Harm

There are many methods that are used to apply a “Quick Weave”. This post is highlighting a unique technique to applying machine wefted hair to a person’s head. This technique includes the use of glue and gel all in the same hair service. the steps to this method are:

1) Relax your hair or wash you hair if it is already natural straight or chemically straightened.

2) After wash, apply leave-in conditioner and wrap the wet hair around your head.

3) Seal the wrap with a thick layer of gel.

4) Sit under the dryer for 20-30 minutes until hair is dry and hard. This is now the prepared base for wefts.

5) Start attaaching wefts to the base with glue row by row until the head is covered.

6) Cut and style as desired.

Pro: You may achieve your desired final result much faster than a sewn in process.


1) Gel is drying to the hair because it contains alcohol.

2) Your scalp will not be able to breathe or receive moisture which is vital to healthy hair growth.

3) You will not be able to cleanse your scalp, which can result in clogged pores and dandruff.

4) Your hair will smell terrible because the scalp is unable to sloth off  dead skin cells, salt  and sebum emissions and shed any dead hair strands from the day before.

5) It will not last as long as a sewn in weave. frequent  reattachment of  the wets with the use of glue can cause long term damage to the hair shaft.

6) Machine wefts are bulky and will still cause some apparent lumps in the hair.

In conclusion, your hair will not benefit  from the use of this method.  In order to get  great hair extension results, you must have a healthy base. Any sewn in or strand by strand method would be ideal.
