How to Prep Your Hair for A Quick Weave Slay

A Quick Slay I’m Here for It!

It doesn’t matter the texture, length or color if you need something done less than two hours a QUICK weave may be the best option.

I know what you’re going to say “Charlie I can’t take that glue” that would be a concern for me as well. However, there are products and techniques that a stylist use to prevent your hair from being touched by the glue which is also known as the molding technique.

What is the Molding Technique?

When it comes to molding the hair, it’s about making sure the hair is flat and creating a flat hard surface to prevent the hair from being touched by the glue. Depending on the length of the hair you can either braid the hair down use Ampro gel and Robert Diamond Bond Protective Shield to start the molding process.

There are so many different ways to do this process, and none of them are incorrect as long as you are protecting the hair.

Below are the tools that you will need for the molding technique:

  • Rattail comb
  • Ampro Gel
  • Wrap strips
  • Gorilla Snot
  • stocking caps
  • Spritz
  • Robert Diamond Bond Protective Shield
    scissors
  • Bonding hair glue (White or Black)

I’m sure that we’ve all invested hours in watching Youtube videos.

One of my go-to for a quick weave slay is MadaboutMeechie! Madaboutmeechie uses gorilla snot to make sure the hair is flat instead of using gel or the protective shield.

As I watched the whole video, it works for her but always use what makes you comfortable when molding the hair.

Using the Right Bonding Glue

Just a friendly reminder if you’re using blonde hair to do a quick weave it’s best that you use white bonding glue.

The reason for using the white bonding glue with the blonde hair is for the closing process, and if the bonding glue mistakenly touches the blonde hair, it can remove easily. The white bonding glue is in your local beauty supply store.

We all know to use the black bonding glue when it comes to black hair or any darker color hair extensions. The reasons for that is for the closing process. When getting a quick weave with no hair out you have to close the top of the head. If you use black bonding glue for blonde hair or white bonding glue on black hair, you will see the residue. Why work harder when can work smarter?

I promise if you follow this simple step it will be a success!
