Hair Braid, Wigs and Weaves 101

Braiding is a hair weaving technique. Women and men of many races and ethnicities used synthetic hair fibers to add variety to their appearance. This synthetic hair fibers are known as hair extensions. Synthetic hair fibers are also used to make hair appear fuller and longer. It is also used as an alternative to experiment with colors and styles in your natural hair to prevent possible damage. The process of adding synthetic hair extensions can be done at a salon or in the comfort of your home.

Synthetic hair have graced women from ancient Egypt. When first used only rich people were mainly the ones who could afford it. In Victorian times, men and women wear wigs and hairpieces to elaborate hairstyles as a symbol of wealth. With the addition of synthetic hair and the easier methods of application, wigs became more affordable.

These wigs were made of plastic or plant fibers. There are some wigs which were made of thread. Today many are made with human hair. This hair can come from women in Asia or other areas who sell their hair for weaving manufacturers. Depending on the thickness and texture of the hair, may come from women of different enthnicities. There are also wigs and hir extension made with horse hair and wool.

Fusion is a method of adding hair tissue. The hair is joined or bonded with their real hair using an adhesive. This method is recommended for hairstyles that are short term. Sewing fabrics of synthetic hair and human hair braid is another method of connection. Before attaching the hair, real hair is braided in strategic manner. This strategic pattern is known as Cornrow pattern and can be circular or vertical. The fabric is sewn into, then into the hair with a needle and thread designed specifically for hair weaving.

Consider the use of hair tissue fusion (braiding) only for a short term. If the hair adhesive is applied, it can cause hair loss. The adhesive can attach to the scalp, making it difficult to remove without hair accompany the adhesive. Care must also be taken when you have a sew hair weave too. If the fabric is tightly twisted, it can become irritated to the crown of your head. The constant pulling on the scalp can also lead to hair loss.

Synthetic hair weave can be washed just as natural hair. After washing the hair, avoiding the use of dry heat. Some hair weaves are made with human hair so the heat can cause dryness and split ends. Hair weave extensions should only be styled with hand curlers. Using combs and brushes in it will pull on the scalp and cause hair to frizz.
