How To Glue In Weaves


If you are planning to do a quick weave on your hair, you are going to need to know how to glue in weaves. The number one thing that you do not want to do is ruin your hair. Gluing in weaves is not the most suggested thing to do to our hair. The glue is just not friendly I don’t care how you put it.

Now there are ways that people are putting in weave with glue without ruining there hair. Simply by doing quick weaves on a cap rather than on the hair itself. What you do is get a shower cap and place it on the head with a wig cap over it. Then you glue the tracks on the wig cap. The shower cap or some sort of nylon cap under the wig cap helps to give your hair the extra protection needed to ensure no glue gets on it. Some people use hair wraps instead of shower caps in order to get the same desired effect. The beauty of this way of styling is also that you are able to take the hair off and put it back on at your leisure just as you would a wig.


Make sure you get the correct glue for your hair. If you have dark hair get the black glue and if you have very light hair you will want to get the white glue. There are a few options as to what brand of glue to use, but all in all there are pretty much the same. Just make sure that as you are applying the glue to the hair that you do not put to much glue on the track. It will make an awful mess and be very hard to get out. If you are gluing the tracks on your scalp you must be very careful of this. As I mentioned earlier it can be damaging to the hair.


Knowing how to glue in weaves will eventually come naturally to you. Do remember that you start at the back of the head and once you reach the middle and behind the top of the ear area you move around and begin on the front. You want to make sure that you don’t put the tracks in so that they are visible. It is a good idea whether you are gluing the tracks to the scalp or on a wig cap to make sure you leave some hair out on the sides, back and in the front. This will allow for a more natural look.
