What is Hair Weft?

When attaching a weft, you choose the type of insertion method you wish to use. The weft has a curtain-like shape with a double-stitched end and can be attached using methods such as weaving, microrings, adhesive or clips, all according to your needs and wishes.

Make your own Clip-on set

Do you want to decide on the length of your Clip-on hair yourself? With a weft, it’s possible.

  • Create a horizontal parting where you want the extensions to sit. Measure and cut the weft according to the length of the parting. Secure the ends of the weft by resealing the edges with adhesive or needle and thread, so that the hair does not detach from the weft.
  • Sew the clips onto the weft. Depending on the length of the weft, you will need 1-4 clips per weft. Use enough clips to distribute the weight of the weft as evenly as possible on your own hair.
  • Follow our clip-on guide on how to attach and care for your hair. A clip-on set is a temporary hair extension or thickening, which is used occasionally and should be removed before sleeping, training or showering.

Attaching your weft with microrings

You can use micro rings to attach your weft. You attach your weft to your own hair using small silicone-coated metal rings that you fasten in place with the help of pliers. The micro rings are available in several colors to match your hair extensions. Before inserting the hair, you should wash your hair with shampoo. Avoid conditioner and styling products, and allow the hair to dry thoroughly before insertion.

  • Create a horizontal parting. Measure and cut the weft according to the length of the parting. Secure the ends of the weft by resealing the edges with adhesive or needle and thread, so that the hair does not detach from the weft.
  • Use hairgrips to secure the extension of your desired length to your own hair.
  • Put a microring onto the needle, then open the hook.
  • Take some of your own hair and some hair from the weft using the hook. Then pull the hair through the microring. (You should feel some resistance, otherwise you have taken too little hair on the hook and the hair may slip out.)
  • Press the microring together using the pliers. Press quite firmly. The microring should become almost flat.

Removing your weft

When removing the weft, use the same pliers as for insertion. The hair should be completely dry. To minimize damage to your own hair, you should never pull on the hair. Follow our instructions to make the process as smooth and easy as possible. It’s a good idea to section your hair in the same way as when you put in the weft.

  • Hold the microring with the pliers.
  • Open the attachment by grasping the microring at the ends. The ring then takes on an oval/round shape again.
  • Carefully pull out the microring.
  • Repeat for all the sections individually until you have removed all the pieces.And you’re done!

Weaving – Sewing on your weft

If you’re going to sew on your hair using the weaving method, you can do so in several ways. If you’re unsure, you can always ask your hairdresser for help and advice for your hair type. Wash your hair with shampoo before insertion, but avoid conditioner and styling products. Allow the hair to dry. It should be completely dry before insertion.

  • Part your hair and take a section of it.
  • Use this section to braid a tight, French braid.
  • Start on one side and braid to the middle. Secure the braid with a small transparent rubber band and then braid the hair from the other side.
  • Measure out and cut the weft so that it fits the length of the whole parting you created. Secure the ends of the weft using a needle and thread to prevent the hair from coming out of the weft.
  • Then with a threaded bent needle, gently sew the weft onto the entire braid.
  • Securely attach the ends of the weft.
  • Repeat for the other pieces until you achieve the desired result.

Styling tip!

As your hair is braided tight to the scalp and then covered with extensions, it takes longer to dry. After washing your hair, you should pay special attention to make sure that it’s actually dry
– a good idea is to section the hair when drying it. This makes it easier to get to the concealed attachments.

Here you can find out more about weaving.

Removing your weave extensions
Removing a weave extension is easy. Use smaller scissors.

  • Carefully cut the threads that hold the weft in place.
  • Repeat the procedure, parting by parting.
  • Then loosen the rubber bands that hold the braided hair together and brush through it.

Attaching your weft with adhesive

If you have thicker, textured hair, you can also use an adhesive to attach your weft. As some people are sensitive to adhesive, it may be a good idea to test it on your hand prior to use to see if any reaction/redness occurs. Do this 48 hours before inserting the hair.

  • Start by sectioning the hair, starting at the nape of the neck. Measure and cut the weft according to the length of the parting. Secure the ends of the weft by resealing the edges with adhesive or needle and thread to prevent the hair from coming out.
  • Apply adhesive to the upper edge of the weft and along the parting.
  • Then press the weft to the adhesive on the parting. Hold until the adhesive is dry and the weft sits securely in place.
  • Repeat for the other pieces until you achieve the desired result.

Removing a glued weft

Use remover to dissolve the adhesive used to attach the weft. The remover is oil-based and specially designed to dissolve the adhesive.

  • Start by sectioning the hair in the same way as when you put in the weft.
  • Apply remover to the attachments.
  • Leave the remover on for a few minutes.
  • Using a pin tail comb, gently prise away the weft from your own hair.
  • If necessary, apply more remover. Avoid pulling out the extensions.
  • Any residue can be combed out, sometimes with the help of additional remover.

Washing the weft

So that your extensions stay beautiful for as long as possible, we recommend you follow our care instructions. Always start by brushing the hair before washing to remove any tangles. Use a soft hairbrush, starting at the ends and working your way up in sections. If you have curly hair, use a wide-toothed comb instead of a brush.

  • Rinse the hair with lukewarm water.
  • Apply shampoo to the upper part. Avoid rubbing the hair. Rinse thoroughly. If you use deep conditioning treatment, apply it to the lengths right after shampooing (avoid the attachments). Leave it on towel-dried hair for at least 10 minutes, then finish with conditioner on the lengths. Avoid rubbing the hair. Rinse.
  • Rinse thoroughly in between applications and allow the hair to dry naturally. This is also a good opportunity to smooth out any tangles with your fingers.
  • You should avoid using conditioner, styling products or heat on your attachments.
