Quick Weave Specifics
The Braiding Pattern
Your crochet pattern must be able to reflect how much you want to leave-out.
If you aren’t sure if you want to leave any hair out, braid your braids so that the weave doesn’t touch your natural hair. Don’t worry if your braiding isn’t perfect when you do this at home.
You should make sure that the weave cap is laid flat so it doesn’t pinch your scalp.
Make sure to measure your head from earto ear before you cut your wefts. So when you cut your tracks, they will be exactly the right length to glue to your weave cover.
Some people prefer to let the tracks dry out as they dry. Others prefer to use the blow dryer at low heat.
