Cheap Human Hair, and Those Who Love It

Cheap Human Hair, and Those Who Love It

Cheap Human Hair

“I love cheap human hair”, says no woman ever. Although, we may not want to pay for top grade hair extensions we still want the look of high quality expensive hair. I must admit, a lot of women tend to ask for way too much when it comes to buying hair extensions on a budget. They want to pay $9.99 and expect the hair to be made out of gold.
We go on sites like Aliexpress and see those gorgeous bundles (at least the pictures of the bundles are gorgeous) with prices and deals like, buy 4 – 30 inch bundles for the low low price of $49.99. We get excited, make the purchase and wait for our beautiful hair to come in the mail. While most of us have made this “steal” of a purchase out of sheer impulse, or based on the fact that the hair seems like its “good hair” just because of the pictures they use.
Just to later find out, after a few days of wearing the hair, that we’ve been hoodwinked and bamboozled by the images they used and the fancy word play. “DANG IT!” we say to ourselves “I fell for it again!” As we shake our head in disbelief and try to rationalize how the hair had to be “good hair”. We thought we had a winner.

Cheap Human Hair, and Those Who Love It

After going through this time and time again, I’ve finally learned that if the price is too good to be true, then it probably is. Let’s be real. People say it all the time, “good hair isn’t cheap and cheap hair isn’t good”. Although I’ve had several cases of trial and error when it comes to buying hair extensions, I’ve finally learned what they mean by this saying. The statement is very much true!
I’ve wasted a ton of money on buying weave, trying to be cheap or save the few extra dollars. After I did the math, it makes more sense to do the initial investment and pay more money upfront versus paying for low quality hair and paying more on the back end. In my experience, its best to buy higher quality hair, because they’ll last a lot longer than re-buying cheap inferior quality hair that only lasts a few months at a time.
I understand that not everyone can go and spend a few hundred dollars on virgin hair in one sitting. I get it! If that is the case, then be sure to get the best quality hair you can on your budget. Do NOT, I repeat DO NOT buy the first cheap thing that looks good. Do some extra digging by researching the company. Check to see if the company has any Google reviews or YouTube reviews. Read the comments and make a decision based off what the previous customers have to say about the company and the quality of the hair.

SILK AND LACE CLOSURES

 

When it comes to wearing a weave I for one would like for my hair extensions to look as natural as possible. I can NOT be out here looking like a Lil’ Kim reject (no offense). But aint nobody go time for that lion from the Wizard of Oz look. I want the hair to damn near look like its growing out of my scalp if I can help it. This is why I was so excited to incorporate silk base closures and lace closures into my life.

Silk and Lace Closures:

I cannot begin to tell y’all how much this thing has saved me and my natural hair from heat damaged, breakage and overall tension on my edges and hair follicles. I LOVE the silk base closures and lace front closures with a passion! I love these options because you can wear any hair texture or color without putting any additional stress on your natural hair.

There have been many arguments over which is better, the lace front closure of the lace base closure. First, let me explain to all my newbies what a closure is. A closure is a hair piece that is about 3-6 inch in width and length with hair stands imbedded into the base to give the illusion of a scalp; normally worn the protect one’s natural hair.

A closure can come in as “free part” which is gives the wearer the ability to part the hair anywhere. While a Pre-Parted closure comes with a pre-plucked part, either on the left side, right side, center or all three.

So there you have it ladies, my full and extensive view point and advice concerning silk and lace closures. Just be careful out there and be sure to choose wisely. Until next time. Smooches!!

  • Use a special shampoo & conditioner for hair dyed for long-lasting hair color from reputable brand, or familiar salon and hairdressing supplies.
  • We recommend avoid direct sunlight because it can damage the hair color.

Key Benefits of Clip In Hair Extensions

Key Benefits of Clip In Hair Extensions

Key Benefits of Clip In Hair Extensions

1. Instant and Easy
Clip in hair extensions are the fastest and most effective way to add length to your hair. Unlike bonded hair extensions which involve using specialist glue and technical equipment, clip in extensions can be expertly added within minutes. Quality is so exceptional that no difference is detectable – provided of course they are matched in the initial appointment by a color expert.
2. Multi wefts Add Length AND Volume
Good quality clip in extensions come in ‘wefts’ – these are strips of hair that can be added from the base of the neck up to the crown. This means that not only does the wearer benefit from added length, but volume throughout is increased.
3. Offer A ‘No Risk’ Option
Clip in extensions are a great way to instantly create bigger and better hair without cutting, coloring or chemically altering your natural hair. If the ‘wefts’ are added and removed with care, then you benefit from versatile styling – not to mention an incredible, almost unlimited choice of color options – with no permanent change to the appearance of your natural hair. Many female wearers these days now cite clip in hair extensions as their favorite ‘hair replacement’ option precisely because of the choice of lengths and different colors available.

4. Follicle Friendly
Hair extensions are generally available in two options: temporary ‘clip-in’ as strips of hair “weft” or, permanent ‘bonded’ extensions in tiny strands. The latter option involves special glue and, or heated bonding equipment to fix the extension to natural hair. This means that there is inevitably extra strain on the hair follicle, particularly as bonded extensions are fixed in place 24 hours a day. In contrast, clip in extensions are fitted with small and many clips that evenly ‘grasp’ the hair across the head. Furthermore, clip in extensions are easily removed before bed which means that there is no strain on natural hair overnight and can be worn for just weekends or special occasions.
5. Portability
Many female clients with hair thinning problems do not always want to wear their hair extensions but like to have them ‘on hand’ in case the occasion arises. Thankfully, clip in extensions are portable and incredibly easy to apply – which means they are the perfect accessory to help make the transition from ‘day’ to ‘night’. They are also perfectly suitable for taking on vacation as you will never be far away from a salon capable of fitting them for you.


The Invention of Hair Extensions

The Invention of Hair Extensions

The Invention of Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are special hair pieces designed to add length to a person’s hair style. They come in a wide variety of colors and textures so that they may be matched to any person’s hair and made to look completely natural. Extensions may be made of natural hair or synthetic fibers.

The next best invention; or so once thought, was to use animal hair, mainly yak. Although this was much cheaper to purchase and import it did so for a price. There was a wretched, musky smell to the extensions (weaves) that could not be washed out. This smell became too much for women to deal with along with women that were allergic to yak.

The Invention of Hair Extensions
 
In the 1950’s with more and more African women entering the film and music industry, image became even more important. African women wanted to put their best foot forward and wear all the latest hairstyles that their peer Caucasian women were sporting. These hairstyles only became achievable with the introduction of real human hair weaves. Many women today wear their hair in shorter styles for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, they desire to restyle their hair into a different appearance that requires more length. This is why hair extensions were invented. Hair extending comes in a wide variety of natural colors and textures including straight, wavy, and curly.

The Invention of Hair Extensions

The weaves were made of real human hair from young Indian women or young Chinese women. Of course the hair donations are not just limited to India and China. European hair is also a very popular type of real human hair used in making extensions. A lot of European hair is collected from women in Russia.
Top dollar is paid for hair in a “virgin” state; meaning the hair has never been chemically treated by coloring it, perming it or having it relaxed.The Invention of Hair Extensions
 
Weaves are not only popular within the African American community but many Caucasians including most actresses wear extensions. The extensions allow a person to go from one hair style extreme to the next. This makes the demand for extensions to be extremely high. To help lower the costs of weaves and extensions, more and more companies are creating hybrid weaves which feature synthetic materials that closely resemble and mimic human hair.

The Invention of Hair Extensions

Most hair extensions made from real hair will last from 9 months to a year under normal conditions. These extensions may be washed, styled, colored, are otherwise treated exactly like one’s own hair. Those made from synthetic fibers may be washed like real hair. Care should be taken when attempting to style hair made from synthetic fibers. Some implements that produce heat, curling irons for example, can damage the synthetic fibers. Color treating synthetic hair fibers is not possible as the chemicals in hair colorants react badly with the fibers.
Hair extensions are a great way for women who have shorter hair to change their hairstyle and add length. There are many options available including natural hair or synthetic, salon applied or clip in, and various grades of all. The final results are sure to look natural and the wearer will generally be quite happy with her hair extending as long as she follows the instructions concerning care she receives with the extensions.


WHEN TO WEAR A FRONTAL OR CLOSURE – HAIR EXTENSIONS

WHEN TO WEAR A FRONTAL OR CLOSURE

WHEN TO WEAR A FRONTAL OR CLOSURE- HAIR EXTENSIONS

Closures and frontals have readily become a necessity in the trading world of weave-ology. They have been a God send for hairlines and edges all over the world. Am I going a little too far with that statement? But seriously, long gone are the days where the only option we had, was to excessively use our flatirons just to get that perfect and seamless blend with our bundles.
I took all kinds of major risks of permanent heat damage and god know what else just so my hair would lay right. It’s a wonder I have any hair left after so many years of frying and dying it. Lol Although I am not the voice for every person on earth but I bet a ton of people will agree with me when I say closures, frontals and 360 bands are my new best friends!
Even though they come in a variety of forms, lengths and styles closures, frontals and 360 bands all server one essential and major purpose. To PROTECT THOSE EDGES GURL!!! Even if they were not all created equal, they were all made to seamlessly close off a weave/sew-in install. Nevertheless, the differences between the 3 are distinguishing and has to be addressed to ensure you’re selecting the right one to achieve that anticipated look and style.

A FRONTAL OR CLOSURE- HAIR EXTENSIONS

WHAT IS A LACE CLOSURE?: An Oval or Circle like shaped hair piece made of lace or silk with strands of hair attached to the base. Normally 4×4 inches in size. Can come with pre-installed parts or free part (can be parted freely). A closure is used to make a sew-in or weave look more natural with the function of protecting one’s natural hair.  It is usually placed in the middle or side of the head to complete a hair style of look.
WHAT IS A LACE FRONTAL?: A 14-inch-long and 4-inch-wide piece of lace with hair strands embedded into the base.  Normally from ear to ear and covers the entire front hair line. Lace frontals are used to give you a more natural appearance. They are also used because of the diversity and the many different ways it can be styled. Such as wearing braids or a middle and/or side part. It is typically sewn down behind the ears so that the hairline looks natural.
WHAT IS A 360 FRONTAL BANDS?:  Essentially a 360 Lace Frontal is a lace headband with
WHEN TO WEAR A FRONTAL OR CLOSURE- HAIR EXTENSIONS , hair extensions, Extensions, Weave hair, Weaves, clip in hair extensions, hair weave, human hair weave, hair store
 
hair strands implanted at the base. It covers the entire perimeter of the head. The 360 frontal bands gives you the freedom to wear high ponytails and other fun and creative styles you would be otherwise not be able to do. 360 frontals have also been known to cut down the installation time to half and allows you to use less hair.

WHEN TO WEAR A FRONTAL OR CLOSURE- HAIR EXTENSIONS

THE INSTALLATION PROCESS:
Regardless of the chosen type, all closures, frontals, and 360 bands must be customized to achieve that natural hairline appearance. I repeat, you must CUSTOMIZE your lace closure, lace frontal or lace 360 frontal band. You do not want to be walking around the city thinking you’re “All of Dat” when in actuality you’re out here in these streets looking like a ventriloquist doll.
There are tons of Blogs and YouTube videos out there to show you how to customize your hair pieces, either by bleaching the knots or using makeup to conceal the knots. As well as how to mimic a more natural looking hairline by plucking some of the hair strands so the hairline is not as dense. If you do not know how to do this or afraid of messing something up, I strongly suggest having a trained professional do this part for you.
Equally lace closures, lace frontals and 360 frontal bands can be sewn in, glued in or constructed onto a wig. Each hair piece is unique and offer its own advantages and disadvantages. However, they all provide you with the option to protect your very own natural hair and the ability to have versatility in your hair styling possibilities.

Hair & The Black Dollar – The Ugly Truth!

Hair & The Black Dollar - The Ugly Truth!

 

Hair & The Black Dollar – The Ugly Truth!

Recently, journalist Roland Martin, cited a figure that has often been used to illustrate just how little blacks spend in their very own community compared to other racial and ethnic groups.  The study claims, “the lifespan of a dollar in the Asian community is 28 days, in the Jewish community the lifespan of a dollar is 19 days and the lifespan in the African-American community is approximately six hours.” There has been much speculation as to whether or not these claims are true; but if this is the case, we have to wonder why and what are the issues.
​​

With studies indicating that the black community doesn’t support other blacked owned businesses as much as other ethnic groups is just flat out sad, but we have to ask ourselves, why is that?!
​​

Well, I can’t speak for everybody else, but to me and I’ll say it again.. TO ME… and this is just MY opinion, but most, and NOT ALL black owned businesses lack professionalism. I hate to say it, but it’s true! And I know many people are going to try to “come for me” but this has been MY experience.

For those that know me, know that I am all about uplifting the community and “fighting the good fight against the man”, but for a large majority of the time, I am always disappointed whenever I try to support the next brutha man’s or sistah gurl’s business operations.

 

Hair & The Black Dollar

For example, yall know I gotta keep my hair looking right, so of course, by nature I would automatically patronize a black salon owner and black hair stylist before I went any place else. Now… this is where the problem lies. TARDINESS!!!! There’s a lot of things I can tolerate and overlook but playing with my time is not one of them. if I set an appointment with a so called “professional”, I expect him/her to be there on time.
​​

For instance, my appointment is set for 9:30 a.m. and the stylist doesn’t come strolling in until 11:30- 12 o’clock (noon). Taking her sweet precious time, talking about “wat cha getting done today”. When the first words out of her mouth should be “oh, hey girl.. I apologize for being late.” And maybe, just maybe “I’ll give you a discount on your services for today”.  Now.. I am a very forgiving person, so if this happens 1 or 2 times, ok… ok.. No big problem, right? But when my stylist is late for every single appointment, that’s when it becomes completely unacceptable. And of course, she wants you to pay her the full amount for the services, plus a tip for her troubles (for doing her job). Which I always do anyway because that’s just the type of person I am.
​​

Experiences such as this, amongst many other situations,

Like going to a blacked owned restaurant and they have over 20 items on the menu but only have 5 items available for you to order. And please don’t act like y’all don’t know what I am talking about. lol
​​

Hair & The Black Dollar – The Ugly Truth!

These types of conditions have made it difficult for me to support or patronize black owned enterprises.  My biggest problem with the black community is, when we go to a business that maybe owned by an Asian or Latino, we expect them to have everything all together. Everything must be perfect. From the service to making sure they have everything in stock. And if they don’t, we make a huge commotion about it and declare we’re never coming back. In my opinion, Black business owners need to raise their standards and/or professionalism and take more pride in their accomplishments. When this happens, I truly believe that the black dollar will then circulate for a longer period of time in the black community.

The Surprising Truth About Sealing Knots On A Hair Frontal

The Surprising Truth About Sealing Knots On A Hair Frontal

The Surprising Truth About Sealing Knots On A Hair Frontal

If you wear extensions and frontals then you know the importance of taking proper care of the knots on your lace front. But just in case you are new to the extensions world,  this article is especially for you. And luckily for you I’m going to explain how to correctly take care of your frontal unit and make sure you maintain its longevity for years to come.
For those of you who don’t know, the knots of a lace frontal are the hair strands implanted into the lace. When manufacturing a hairpiece, each hair strand is inserted into the lace base and then knotted so it can remain attached.
Go and get your frontal NOW… I’ll wait…. Now look very closely…. Can you see the little dots on the base?  Do you see them? Those are the knots!  Securing every strand of hair onto your lace.

To keep it real, overtime with frequent use and even abuse, the hair may become loosened from the lace base which causes the shedding.  Shedding can result in sparse areas and bald spots which will have you looking like a mangy dog with Alopecia.   
Now, let’s get down to the nitty gritty: How to take proper care of your lace frontal
If you were wondering… Yes, there’s more to care and maintenance than just cleaning and conditioning your hair unit. Didn’t realized wearing a frontal required so much maintenance? Huh?! Just kidding, it’s really not that much work.
Hair extensions are an investment and it’s no point in having a clean, moisturized, and well-groomed hair piece if its constantly shedding when you brush or run your fingers through it.
Therefore, it is so important to use a Knot sealer to help the knots remain strong and attached to the lace. Make the most out of your hairpiece by taking proper care of it, and YEP, you’ve guessed it. That starts with knot sealing.
What is a Knot Sealer? And How do you use it? You ask…
Top Loc Knot Sealer,Brazilian hair, human hair wigs, natural hair, wavy hair, curly hair, straight hair, kanekalon hair, wig, wigs, wig store

The Surprising Truth About Sealing Knots On A Hair Frontal

 
Knot sealers are special formulas that seal and protect the delicate knots at the base of your hairpiece. It helps to keep shedding to a minimum and ensure a longer lasting unit.
Currently there are several brands of knot sealer on the market. Choosing a trusted and well-known brand if you can. Here are a few brands you might want to consider.
  • Walker Tape Top-Loc Knot Sealer
  • TDi Fast Trak Knot Sealer
  • Advent Hair’s knot sealer
However, many women find that using craft adhesive spray is the cheapest option with satisfying results. Do some research and figure out what would be your best option.
When you seal your knots on a regular basis, you will see less hair loss, and longer durability.
Now that we covered that, let’s talk about how to use the Knot Sealer
Don’t worry, it’s not rocket science! It is so simple a chimp can do it.  Just follow these simple and easy steps and you’ll be just fine.
1) Make sure your hair system is clean (shampooed and conditioned). Knot sealers work           best if you apply it to a nice clean base.
2) Let the hair completely dry. 
3) Turn the hairpiece so the lace is facing upwards towards you.
4) Spray a layer of knot sealer evenly over the lace.  Don’t go H.A.M!!! When I say spray, I           mean a very light mist. see the video below for an example,

 
5) Make sure to have some distance when spraying your hairpiece to avoid inhaling the product or worst, getting it into your eyes. Always Put Safety First!
6) Wait 10-20 minutes for the layer to dry and repeat the process.  Only this time, give a little more attention to the areas you feel like you comb more often or where you usually apply your adhesive. Spray just a little more product on those areas. Careful not to use too much.
7) Let it dry for a few minutes so the knot sealer can do what it do!! I advise you NOT to use a blow dryer, letting it air dry is the best options. 
All done! That wasn’t so hard. Now was it?!

Putting forth this small effort can go a very long way to help preserve your lace frontal. In almost no time you should notice the difference in the shedding. For extra preventive maintenance, you should re-seal the knots, especially the areas where shedding is more common, (like the front of the hair line) at least once or twice a month.


How To, Lace Closures Versus Silk Closures, The Ugly Truth

How To, Lace Closures Versus Silk Closures, The Ugly Truth

How To, Lace Closures Versus Silk Closures, The Ugly Truth

If you’ve been wearing hair extensions for as long as I have, you would have to agree “the weave game” has come a mighty long way! Who remembers the circle closures we were forced to use to cover up your tracks from a quick weave or sew in? Lol I remember those days. The struggle was SO REAL!

Now we have so many more options to make our extensions and weaves look way more natural; and I for one, am in love. We all know about closures and frontals by now. But what many of us don’t really know is the difference between a lace closure and a silk base closure. That’s what I’m here for! To drop some knowledge on ya.
First. What exactly is a closure?

By definition a Closure is referred to as an oblong or circle shaped piece of fabric, that has hair attached to it, with the sole purpose of being place on the top or side of your hair to be used as a finishing piece to close in an install (sew in or quick weave). It is used to make your weave look more natural. With the main function being to avoid leaving out any sections of your natural hair. Used to protect and maintain one’s natural hair.
Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let’s discuss what the difference is between a lace closure and a silk base closure.

How To, Lace Closures Versus Silk Closures, The Ugly Truth

LACE CLOSURE
The base of a lace closure is made with nothing more than lace with hair strands embedded into the tiny holes. Lace closures are usually thinner and tend to lay flatter, which allows for a more natural looking hairline.
​​

However, you will need to do some modifications to lace closures to achieve the best results. With the hair strands being directly embedded into the sheer lace, the tiny black knots where the hair and lace meet are very visible when placed against your skin.
One trick to fix this, is to simply bleach the knots to get rid of the grid-like appearance the dots create. Or alternatively, you can also apply a same skin tone concealer or foundation to the lace to achieve a more natural looking appearance.
It is important to know that the lace on closures may come in difference shades.  Choose a shade that works best for your scalp color. Even though, the lace of closures may come in different colors, the good news is that they are still very much transparent, so you can alter it to match your skin tone with different techniques.

SILK BASE CLOSURES
A silk base closure is made with a silk base……….. Duh!….. I know! Lol,,,,, but I wanted to make sure you were following along.  They are made with hair strands embedded into a nude, skin-like silk material that is reinforced with lace.
Silk base closures generally do not require any bleaching of the knots. Because of the silk material on the back on the closure, the knots are not visible and mimic the scalp without needing many alterations.

How To, Lace Closures Versus Silk Closures, The Ugly Truth

​​

The construction of silk closures make the hair unit look more natural and more like your scalp. The silk material underneath is the most ideal method for using a closure as the finishing piece to your hair install. However, this type of closure tends to be a little thicker, which can pose as a challenge for getting a super flat install.

Silk closures are not as transparent as the lace closure, because of the different layers of materials. While the silk material helps to conceal the knots to create that “real scalp” appearance, we all know every scalp comes in many different shades and colors. For my darker complexion people, you may need to alter and tint your silk base closure to fit closer to your skin tone.
​​

While there are numerous differences in a silk base and lace closure, the overall purpose remains the same. They are used to give you a very “flawless and natural look”.  They can also be used to alleviate and reduce the amount of stress or damage being put on your natural hair from wearing installs with sections of your hair being left out.  I personally love using both silk or lace because it allows me to do many different styles and colors without manipulating my own natural hair. Either silk or lace closures give me the freedom to choose any kind of style I desire. The main difference between silk base and lace closures are the material they are manufactured with.

How To Make A Frontal Look More Natural

We’ve all seen it way too often. Lace frontal installs that sit right above a woman’s eyebrows. Or the ones that look just like the hairline of a Barbie Doll or one of the guys from an episode of the Sopranos (no shade lol).

When it comes to wearing a lace frontal, you should want it to look as natural as possible and not like a Dragon Con character. A lace frontal should mimic one like your very own God given hair line. This is why customizing your frontal is such a crucial part of achieving that “growing out of my scalp” appearance. I’m going to let you in on some of my best kept secrets to accomplish this look.
Step 1. Bleaching your knots: When it comes to bleaching your knots make sure the mixture is a very thick and creamy consistency. You do NOT want it to seep through the mesh and on to the actual hair. Place on a foil sheet and process for no more than 15-20 minutes. (Side note: if you use a stronger developer i.e. Vol 40, processing time can be cut to a shorter length)
If you do not feel comfortable bleaching your knots, DON’T worry! I have another option for you. You can either have a professional do it or you can use a foundation or press powder to help conceal the knots. What you want to do is take an old make up brush or sponge and blot on the frontal a makeup color that’s the same skin tone as yourself. Make sure to cover the entire surface and really work the makeup onto the mesh material of the frontal.
The whole purpose of this, is to hide and camouflage the little dark specks on the mesh. Remember!!! We want it to resemble a scape as much as possible.

Step 2. Pluck, Pluck and PLUCK some more!!!
First you want to put the frontal on a mannequin head or lay it flat on a white surface background (makes it easier to see what you are plucking). Next, we start the “Plucking” process. This is a VERY important stage because it allows you to customize your lace frontal to look more like your very own natural hairline.

Rules to follow when tweezing the hairline:
  1. Use the tweezers to carefully pluck out random pieces of hair. The main focus is to make a gradual fade from the hairline to the rest of the longer hair.
  2. Tweeze the hairline until you have reached your liking and preference.
  3. Baby hairs should be very thin and short. Think about how fine your very own hairline may look.

How To Make A Frontal Look More Natural

  1. Don’t take out too much hair out because it will look like you are balding in that area.
  2. Don’t make the part completely straight because that will cause it to look a little too perfect and unnatural.
