Quick weaving is a hair weaving technique that many black women use for beautiful locks in short amount of time. A quick weave is not only applied in a short amount of time, but gives a natural look with a flat foundation. Applying a quick weave to a black woman's hair is easy and fast and when properly maintained, lasts for up to three weeks.
Things You'll Need
- Weave bond glue
- Extension hair
- Wig cap
Shampoo and condition your hair thoroughly and blow it slightly dry.
Apply gel to your hair while it is still damp and, for shorter hair, comb it into a wrap style. For longer hair comb hair back as if you would put it in a low ponytail, then split it in half. Take one side and wrap it around your head, using bobby pins to hold it down. Then grasp the other side and wrap it around your head pinning it down with bobby pins so that the two sides meet in the center of your head at the hairline. Make certain your hair is flat.
Sit underneath a dryer, or blow your hair dry until the gel sets and hair is hard.
Apply a wig cap if you wish to protect your hair from the weave bond glue, as it is difficult to remove. This step is recommended for hair protection but not required, you can lay the extension hair wefts directly on your hair for a more natural appearance.
Measure the hair weft starting at the nape of your head, leaving about 2 inches of space between the weft and the bottom of your hairline. Measure from one side of the wig cap to the other, then cut the weft.
Apply the weave bond glue to the top of the hair weft and glue it directly onto the wig cap or your hair in the measured location. Use your blow dryer to set the glue. Repeat Step 5 until you have completed your hair, leaving approximately 1 to 2 inches of space between each track.
Cut and/or style your quick weave to the look you desire.
