Post My Quick Weave: step by step (pictures included)

Hello all! I was on a thread earlier talking about quick weaves. Well it was that time anyway for me to take my hair down and do another quick weave. So I decided to go step by step and show those who don't know what it is, how it's done. QWs are my protective style and allow for my hair to grow. Now I know there are those who abhor the idea of putting glue in their hair, but it's easy, quick (duh), and less of a hassle (well for me anyway). So here goes my steps to a quick weave (sorry for the huge pics and the crazy shirt (it's my fav))


Here are the products that I use:



1. I wash,deep condition my hair, and blow dry it.



2. Then I put tons of oil on it, and part the front where my part is gonna be.


3. Then I gel my hair back in a pony tail.


4. I spray tons of oil sheen on the end of my pony tail, then I gel it up.


5. I blow dry until it semi-dry and put 3 stocking caps on my head to ensure none of the glue seeps through to my hair.


6.Then I begin to glue the tracks on the stocking caps starting from the back working my way to the front.


7.I glue the tracks all the way up to the top, making sure not to glue any on top of where my hair was left out.


8. Then I cut the stocking caps in a straight line right over where my hair is left out and part my hair.


9. I spray my hair with the cantu flat iron spray, then I curl it with curlers about the size of the curls.


I trim it up and use some of the wrap lotion to shape the curls. And there you have it a quick weave! I usually leave this one in for about one to 1 1/2 week depending on how it holds up. I just get up in the morning shake my fingers through it and I'm out the door; very convenient.

FINISHED PRODUCT

You natural hair is so long and your quick weave is sooooooo cute . How did you learn how to do this? Did you just try it one day?

Well I'm from Dallas, and everybody wears them. I've always done my own hair. So, yeah, one day I just tried it and I've been doing them since then with different styles, this is just my favorite

another question, since you use wig caps, cant you just take off the quick weave and put it back on like a wig? Girl I am really going to have to try this one day, when I grow me enough hair.

No, mine dont come off until I'm ready to take it down. Usually by that time, the glue loosens around the edges. But you can do it by putting seran wrap around your hair, and a stocking cap on top of that, and glue the tracks on top of the cap.

One thing to remember though is that when you're taking it down, to use some sort of oil (preferably the 30 sec debonding oil) to slide the tracks off the edge so that none of your hair come out.

Actually they don't, until it's time for it to come down, cause the glue keeps them together and in place.

I don't take mine off, but you could if you put seran wrap on your hair and stocking caps, and then do it normally. Once you finish, you just slide it off your hair.

I've been wearing regular stocking cap wigs, but I never thought to cut a part in the top. This is fantastic. I'm gonna try it for my next wig. Thanks OP.

Thank you for posting this. You just showed me that quick weaves do not have to be damaging.

I saw something today that made me sad. A girl wearing a weave and all her edges were gone and the hair was pulled back like it was normal.

Im glad I came on tonight. I wish I could share this with her. Your hair is beautiful.

Smile Re: My Quick Weave: step by step (pictures included)

My cousin does these all the time, but you actually made me want to try it. This is a great alternative to a sew-in which could damage your hair if the thread is pulled too tight.

Also, my cousin always complains about the stocking being too tight, but this would not be a problem with your method since you cut the stocking.

Thank you for sharing!!

I am so tempted to try this because of how great it looks on you. I just don't understand how you are gluing the weave on. Can you explain further if you don't mind? Also, how much approximately does the hair cost that you use?
