Human or Synthetic?

Human or Synthetic?
Choosing human hair versus synthetic hair for your weave will come down to your own personal preference and how you plan to style it. If you are looking for something that is low maintenance, then synthetic might be better for you. If you are looking for something that you can style yourself, specifically using heated appliances (hot irons, blow dryers, hot rollers, etc.), then human hair might be the best choice for you. If you are looking for an alternative to human hair, we do offer Futura Eventra weaving hair. This hair is made of high quality synthetic fibers that will allow you to use heated appliances without melting.

Can I wash my weave?
You can definitely wash your weave but you want to make sure you don't rub your hair as this will cause your weave to tangle. You need to make sure that you detangle your hair by applying a detangler (or diluted conditioner). Make sure you start from the ends and work your way up to prevent breakage. After your hair is completely tangle-free, apply a mild shampoo to your hair AND scalp. Gently massage your scalp allowing your fingertips to penetrate your tracks and remove any dirt and oil. Rinse thoroughly. Apply a conditioner for added shine and rinse accordingly. Take a dry towel and pat dry. DO NOT RUB as this will cause your hair to tangle. For synthetic hair, allow hair to air dry before going to bed. For human hair, hair can either be air dried or blow dried on low heat. DO NOT SLEEP ON WET HAIR.

Can I style my weave?
Absolutely!! Just remember that if you are weaving a synthetic weave, you cannot apply any heated appliances. For human hair, your weave can be styled just as your own including using hot irons, blow dryers, etc. In addition, you can use hair products as long as you wash them out frequently as too many products can cause human hair to tangle. You can also visit a professional stylist to have the hair cut and/or styled to compliment you.

My weave is shedding. What do I do?
It is normal to experience some shedding of your weave especially if the hair is silky straight. If you notice shedding, you might need to add a bonding glue to the weft the NEXT TIME you get a weave using the same hair. Please do not attempt to apply the bonding glue to the weft while you are still wearing the weave.
