I think 4oz is a pack of weave. So if you weare two packs that is about 8oz. Thats in most standard packs.

I have a small head, so I usually use about 6 oz or a pack and a half for a full weave.

When I was weaving, I'd use 6-8 oz for a full-head install (1.5-2 packs).

It's sold by weight, so the longer the hair they shorter the weft.

Usually you need between 4-6 oz if you're using 10-14 inch hair

6-8 ounces for 16-18 inch hair and so on.

So basically 4 oz of 10 inch hair would cover twice as much of your head than 4 oz of 20inch hair.

For a full head sew in, I say 8 oz. I used almost 7 oz for a curly weave and I had leave out up top and around the perimeter.

Same here. I usually use 8 ounces (2 packs of 4 ounces - curly hair) and then the closure which finishes off the full weave.

4 oz is one pack. You would use 6 to 8 oz for a weave. You may need 10 to 12 oz if the hair is longer than 16 inches. Longer hair will have a shorter weft because it's measured by weight.

it depends on head size

I have a small head so 4oz curly in enough for me

and I use 5 oz straight. sometimes 6 if I want full hair

Default Re: hw many oz of hair do you use for a full weave?

It depends on the length and texture of the hair. General rule of thumb: if going 18" or longer, most likely you would need three packs of hair especially if it is straight hair.

The most hair I ever used was 10oz of hair plus a closure which is like 2 ounces (team big head over here)
