Steps on Prepping Your Hair (How To Prep Your Hair Before Fixing Weave)

  1. Buy hair extensions. Hair extensions are typically made of human hair that are sewn into wefts, or tracks, either with a machine or by hand. They come in endless colors, textures and lengths. Choose a color and texture that matches your hair, so the extensions will look as natural as possible. If the extensions match your hair and are applied correctly, no one will be able to tell the difference between your natural hair and your extensions.

    • Dying or adding highlights to the extensions can help you get the perfect color or shade. If you are stuck in between two shades, select the lighter one.
    • Virgin or Remy wefts are made from either untreated or minimally treated human hair. These options are expensive, but they result in the most natural look. Synthetic options are less expensive, but they often cannot be styled or washed. They may not look as natural as human hair options.
    • In addition to weft extensions, you’ll need hair bonding glue. The glue should match the color of your hair extensions. Do not attempt to use any other type of glue to put in extensions.
    • A bonded hair weave will typically last about six to eight weeks if it’s properly maintained. Since you’re glueing the extensions to your hair, be prepared for your existing hair to suffer some damage.
  2. Make sure your hair texture matches your extensions. If you bought straight extensions, and your hair is naturally curly, you’ll need to start by permanently straightening your hair before you apply the extensions. The texture should be as close as possible to achieve a natural look.
  3. Apply setting solution. This helps to keep your hair in place during the process and protect it from getting damaged. For short hair (above shoulder-length), slick your hair back with a hair setting solution, then comb the hair as close to your scalp as possible. For longer hair, pull your hair into a tight, low ponytail and slick your hair back with a hair setting solution. Allow the setting solution to dry completely.
  4. Create a rectangular part. Use a comb to part your hair in a rectangle shape on the top of your head. Part it on either side and across the back, right where your head juts out the most. Secure the hair within these parts with a hairband to keep it out of the way.
    • All of the wefts will be applied below this rectangular part. You need enough hair within the rectangle to cover the top of the wefts that you’ll be putting in just below the part. Otherwise, the extensions will be visible.
  5. Create a U-shaped bottom part. Use your comb to create another part that starts about three inches from your bottom hairline and extends from one side of your head to the other side, curving around the base of your head. The lowest extension will be applied just below this part.
    • Make sure the part is very neat. If it’s not straight, the weave won’t stay in as neatly and it will look messy.
    • Make sure the part starts three inches above your hairline. If you put in the weave too low it will be visible when you style your hair in an updo.
