What Kind Of Quick Weaves Are Best For Growing Natural Hair?

There is always a debate between human hair and synthetic quick weaves. There is no straightforward answer, as both have pros and cons.

Synthetic quick weaves are cheaper than human hair quick weaves. Besides, they are open to more styling or product applications. 

It’s also seen that synthetic ones are more lightweight than human hair ones. Sunlight and hair color standability are also differences between them, and Synthetic weaves win in this case.

Considering all the advantages and disadvantages, people often choose synthetic quick weaves for their affordability and perks. 

However, the demand for human hair quick weaves is also getting higher, so the prices are high.

You can choose either of them, but make sure you choose the one that allows you to care for your natural hair with the weaves quickly. 

Grow Your Natural Hair With Quick Weaves

Your natural hair stays inside the cap when you put on a quick weave for a month or two.

That means they don’t get any hair care product, water, or air to get nourishment to grow. 

So, you must understand that your natural hair and weaves need proper care for the period you’re wearing the weaves.

You can grow your natural hair with our appropriate method guided below with quick weaves.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • A wooden wide-tooth comb, 
  • A metal wide-tooth comb, 
  • Application bottles, spray bottles, 
  • Braid spray, cream moisturizer, grape seed oil or argan oil, or coconut oil
  • Pre-conditioner or conditioner, shampoo (On your wash days).

Step 1 – Preparation

First, you have to prepare your hair for the process. To do it, you have to detangle your weaves. 

  1. Detangle Hair

Start with detangling the excess natural hair on the front side of your head that is neatly blended with the weave look.

Run a wooden wide toothcomb to do it. Wooden combs are easier to work on dry hair, so we suggest you do so.

Then, take the natural hair section, roll it up, and clip it so it doesn’t mix with the weaves. 

Right after, detangle the weaves running the comb from top to bottom. Continue the process until you are sure every strand is tangle free.

  1. Keep Products Handy

Fill in the products in the application bottle or containers for easy use. 

Step 2 –  Product Application

After detangling, make different sections in the weaves. Separate the bottom section as you must start applying the product from the bottom. Roll the rest of the hair and tie that with a hair clip.

Now, there are two ways you can do hair care for growing natural hair under the weaves. Use either way according to your needs.

  1. Apply Products And Leave It On The Hair

If you are not planning to wash your hair today, follow this method. 

To do this, spray the braid over the braids or the lining you can see over the bottom section you made a while ago.

Next, apply the cream moisturizer on the lining. You will not rub the moisturizer here but gently apply it with your fingers. 

Then, seal the applications with some grape seed oil. If you don’t want to use it, apply argan or coconut oil instead.

Follow the same process in each section of your hair, and you are done. 

If you want to work on your weaves alongside, choose a moisturizer or pre-conditioner, or leave-in conditioner suitable for your weave hair.

You can ask for recommendations from your hairstylist or someone professional with quick weaves.

  1. Prepare Hair For A Wash

Washing your hair with a quick weave is necessary once in a while. Although applying products does the job quite well, still you need to wash your hair to remove dirt and product buildup.

If you are planning on washing your hair, the hair care process is similar. You have to apply the products as mentioned in the previous step.

After that, put on a plastic hair cap and a cloth hair cap over it. Preheat the cloth hair cap in the oven before wearing it. 

Wait for half an hour to an hour.

This process will make the hair products you apply seep into your natural hair deeply through the weave cap. 

When washing your hair, take an application bottle and put shampoo with water in it.

Apply and massage it with your fingers. You can use a metal tooth comb to massage your hair by scratching it.

This tool makes the cleaning process quicker and easier.

After applying shampoo, rinse off the products very well with water. Ensure there is no remaining product; otherwise, it will cause build-up and eventually damage your hair. 

Lastly, apply some leave-in conditioner. If you use a regular conditioner instead, you must rinse that too.

Our Tips: There is no necessity to use a conditioner if you have already used one previously in our procedure.

Step 3 – Style Your Hair

One of the most significant parts of styling your hair is blow drying. If you have washed your hair, blow it with a hair dryer.

Remember, as you have a quick weave worn over your natural hair, it will take forever to dry completely. 

Prolonged wetness on your natural hair can cause building bacteria and damage it. 

Once the hair is dry well, style it the way you want.

However, make sure you apply a decent heat protection product on your weaves before using any heat-ironing tool.
