Whether you’re getting ready for work, freshening up for a girl’s night out, or staying in with some me-time, weft extensions can be your best friend. We know that hybrid wefts are the next big thing in extensions, due to their versatility and convenience. Whether you tried them before or are looking into getting them installed, in this article we will be giving you 5 reasons to try our weft extensions over other extensions!
What are Wefts?
A hair weft, in its basic form, is a collection of hair strands sewn onto a thin cloth strip ready for your stylist to work into your hair. How the hair forms an attachment to that strip varies; some will be machine sewn whereas others get sewn by hand. Both have their benefits, but depending on your hair type, one may be better for you than the other. For example, hand-tied wefts are more delicate. You can’t cut them but they are much lighter. You can cut machine sewn wefts, but they’re much heavier and often thicker at the seam.
Wefts Can Protect Your Hair From Heat Damage
If you get a sew-in installed, all of your hair will be braided underneath, which will give your hair a break. Only the wefts will have heat applied on it. This can be a protective style for you while you blow dry, curl, or flat iron the wefts. You can also use your natural hair texture with textured wefts if you want some added length.
Wefts Are Great for Growing Out Your Hair
Since your natural hair is most likely in braids underneath the wefts, this prevents it from tension or breakage, which helps your hair grow full and healthy. Make sure that the wefts are installed properly to promote healthy hair growth, and make sure to moisturize and protect your hair underneath too! Remember that not all hair extension methods are right for you to apply in your hair. Some create breakage, breaking your natural hair beyond repair. Weft hair extensions look natural, and if the braids are done correctly, then your hair will have the chance to not only grow longer, but stronger.
Have you wanted to try a pixie cut but are scared to cut your hair that short? Have you wanted to try a really bold blonde or red but don’t want to bleach your hair? You can do that with wefts without the risk. You can do anything with wefts that you can do with your natural hair, any style, color, volume, or length is all up to your imagination. Wefts can be used for hybrid wefts, microlinks, sew-ins, a quick weave and so much more! At Perfect Distraction, our extensions are made with virgin human hair that can be chemically altered, cut and styled to achieve any desired look. Check out our 7 textures here.
Weft extensions are great if you’re on a budget. Since the hair has a 1-2 year shelf life if treated with care, you really get your money’s worth. Just make sure not to use too much heat on the extensions and keep them moisturized.
Low Effort Style
Let’s be honest, we don’t have hours to spend on our hair everyday. We've all been in that situation where you're trying to decide whether it’s worth waking up early to put that extra effort into your hair, or sleeping in an extra 30 minutes. For wefts, all the effort is gone. You can put it in a low ponytail, wear it down, or however else you want, in less than a minute. This saves so much time that you can use sleeping in or for more productivity. It doesn’t have to take forever to look good!
