I am interested in a female wig for hair loss and I am unsure what wig cap type to go for

There are three main wig cap types to choose from:

There is the Monofilament wig cap type which gives the illusion of a scalp for a natural look and requires no taping or bonding

The front lace wig cap has a strap at the back and lace in the front only, allowing you to tape or bond the front for extended period of wear including in bed

The full lace wig cap has lace around the entire perimeter, allowing you to tape or bond the wig securely for extended period of wear and allowing you to tie your hair up in a ponytail

How is a lace wig fitted to the scalp

A front or full lace wig is secured to the scalp using special wig tapes or bond. Step by step instructions on how to fit your lace wig is provided here

I have never had a weave before, can you tell me more?

 

Sewing in your hair extensions is known as a weave. A weave is great because it's better for your hair than the glue in hair extensions. They are very popular. The weave can last 3 to 8 weeks before you have to redo it. And you'll be able to re-use the hair you buy from us for ages (up to 2 years if you look after them). .

 

Why should I go for real hair?

Many hair extension brands falsely claim to provide real hair, which leads to disappointment and frustration to hair extension and wig lovers. Tangling and frayed ends is a common problem with synthetic hair making the hair look plasticky and unnatural after some time. Some people also find they are allergic to the synthetic fibers used in such hair.

At HairWeavon, we make it our priority to ensure our hair is real and of the finest quality. You can expect your HairWeavon hair extensions, wigs and clip ins to look and feel real.

Our hair is hand picked with cuticles aligned to ensure it is

tangle free. Your HairWeavon hair will feel soft and silky to the touch. It can be styled as you desire with any of your heat tools. It is easy to manage just like it's your own hair.

HairWeavon will save you money in the long run, because our high quality hair extensions will last 2 or more years when cared for properly. Our real hair wigs are also very reasonably priced.

Is the weave painful?

It shouldn't be. It can depend on the hair stylist, tell your hair stylist you dont want it too tight and she'll have it looser but the firmer the weave, the longer it will last before you have to re-weave. People generally find them comfortable to wear

How do i style my curly hair extensions?

At HairWeavon, all our hair are ethically sourced, this is important to us and to our customers too. The hair originates from India. In India there is an ancient Hindu tradition whereby people give their hair as offering in temples instead of money, this practice continues today. We have traveled to the temples in India to ensure that the hair is given in a free and ethical way. Once collected, the hair is cleaned to ensure it is safe to wear and then made into hair extensions and wigs.

What is the best quality human hair to get. Indian hair, Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair?

Virgin Indian hair is hair in its most natural state. It is not dyed or processed in any way.

Virgin Indian Hair is available in it's natural color, straight and wavy texture. Clients often ask for Brazilian or Peruvian hair. So called Brazilian and Peruvian hair are not from Brazil or Peru, such hair is often Indian hair, processed hair or hair that is mixed with other synthetic material, hence it doesn't last very long and will be difficult to manage.

Can I dye, straighten, curl or blow dry my hair extensions?

Yes. All HairWeavon hair extensions are real human hair which means you can choose to style it or dye it as you wish. However, we advise that you seek the help of a professional hair stylist to dye the hair. Also avoid the use of extreme heat so that the hair can last longer. To minimize the use of heat, we particularly like the bending roller or Flexi rods.

You can use the lace wig kit or adhesive tape. See our page on how to fit your lace wig.

Can I use any shampoo and conditioner for my hair extensions?

We recommend that you use only good quality shampoo and conditioner for your hair extensions. This will help the hair last longer. We recommend the African Essence Shampoo

for cleaning your wig and hair extensions for reuse.

Can I swim or exercise?

Yes, Before swimming or exercising, brush your hair using a vent brush and braid the hair in two braids to ensure all the hair is protected. Ensure all of your hair is tucked neatly under your swimming cap. Prolong exposure to salt water or chlorine causes the hair to tangle and become less manageable

Why do my hair extensions have split ends?

It is not unusual for the hair to have split ends just like natural hair on a person’s head. Our Virgin Indian Hair is provided in its natural state. Split ends is a good indication that the hair extensions you are getting is real hair.

Should there be variations in the texture of the virgin weave hair?

There may be slight variations in the texture of the hair because it is in its natural state. The virgin hair texture can vary between bundles because different donors may have different hair texture. If you are using multiple bundles, the hair usually blends well.

It is super easy to manage Virgin hair extensions and style in any way you want, just like your own hair.
