What Are Hair Extensions?

Hair extensions are individual pieces or tracks of weave hair that are used to install onto or braid into your natural hair to add length or fullness. Hair extension installation methods include clip in, glue on and sew in. Human hair extensions are the best type of hair extension you can buy.

What Is Weave Hair?

Weave hair is a type of hair used for installing hair extensions. Weave hair is sewn onto your natural hair to create length and fullness. Weave hair is usually one long stitched together piece of hair that is wrapped around the head and sewn into braids with thread.  A human hair top piece (hair closure) is usually installed on the crown to cover any tracks.

How Long Does a Sew In Weave Last?

You don’t want to keep your sew in installed any longer than 2-3 months. The reason why is because you will shed a lot of hair in that time frame. Typically you will shed about 80-100 hairs per day. That’s a lot of shed hair in 2-3 months.

The problem is the shed hair doesn’t have anywhere to go because its contained in your twists and braids. All of that hair will stay very close to the roots which will lead to matting. You should re-do your hair every 2-3 months but not to exceed 3 months. Any longer than 3 months will make locks form. The hair will become very tight within that lock and will take much longer to remove the hair extensions when it’s time to get them redone.

Do Sew In Weaves Damage Hair?

No, a sew in weave won’t damage your hair if installed correctly. However, a sew in will damage hair and cause breakage if installed incorrectly. If you want to grow your hair out you should install a full sew in (which means none of your hair is left out) for a complete protective style.

I have been seeing Al for over two years and my hair looks the best it ever has. Al gave me the confidence to wear my hair natural with no relaxer and no color. She taught me about products and how to care for my hair. I have embraced my curls and gray. She is punctual and values my time which is huge. There is nothing worse than spending a half a day at the hair salon. She always takes her time and is meticulous with her shears. I also walk out feeling and looking like a million bucks.

I have been a client at LaToyes Touch of Beauty for about a year now. When I came in initially, my hair was so thin it was almost bald. When I left, I had a full, gorgeous head of hair with the extensions Al Eisha put in! Furthermore, she assured me that with care and maintenance, my natural hair could now grow around the extensions - and they have! I love my hair now😁😁😁
I love the personalize services! Thank you Al 💯💗
