What is the best way to cut a weft?
Hand tied wefts should never be cut from the top, this is a common mistake made by even experienced hair stylists. If it is cut, then you should seal it with a good glue like nail glue or fabric glue. There is no guarantee that it will not shed if it is cut. Also, one should never sew through top of the weft and it is recommended you sew around the weft. With machine wefts, you can cut where desired. We cannot stress how important this information is, the main reason for wefts shedding is because the weft is not cut properly.

How Wide is the Weft in Inches?
The width of the wefts depend on the length of the hair. The longer the length the shorter the width... so if you decide to go with longer hair and want to cover more of your head we would suggest 2 or possibly 3 packs of hair. For example, a 16" weft is around 9 feet long. Yes, this is 100% virgin human hair which is not processed in any way. So you can color the hair. Once virgin hair is treated in any way, it is no longer virgin. Generally it is advised to make any major color changes after having your extensions applied.

Can I go swimming?
You may go in swimming pools and hot tubs. It is best to wash hair right after swimming. Avoid getting hair in salt water as the salt can take all the moisture out of the hair and it will lead to tangling of the hair. Never braid your hair and go in salt water. It is best to wear it down. Add a spray in conditioner after swimming.This hair can last for a very long time depending on how you maintain it. Treat it like your own hair and take good care of it for it to last longer. Many hair extionists prefer Indian hair because it is beautiful and unprocessed which makes it last longer than any other kind of hair. We advise that you comb your hair every morning. Just bend your head forward and gently brush your hair from the ends towards your scalp. Starting from the ends keeps the pressure off the weft area and is a good way to maintain the longevity of the extensions.

Do I have to do anything special at night?
