Bundles Or Packs
Bundles or packs How to choose your hair when getting weave & extensions
Being a professional hairstylist, I do many weave/extension providers. As I began doing an increasing number of of those companies, a regularly asked query has been what kind of hair to purchase since many of my purchasers are attempting sew-ins and clip-ins for the first time. Being asked this query so many instances is what ultimately led me to starting my own hair company. Earlier than, I had no intention on promoting hair, but I realized that I need to ensure that my shoppers can get a brand of hair that they could belief. As for me, I wanted reliable hair that I could use frequently and obtain the identical results every time, thus L. Jones Hair Assortment was born. I have realized (the exhausting manner) that the sort of hair you buy when getting weave/extension companies is crucial to the lifespan of the service you get. You can have an amazing sew-in but if the hair will not be great quality hair, you will not take pleasure in that amazing sew-in for long. On this publish, I will clarify the pros and cons of hair that comes in bundles and hair that comes in packs, and how to choose which one is best for you.
Many of you may have already heard the terms “pack” in addition to “bundle” in the case of weave. If someone says their hair came in a pack, that implies that they purchased their hair from the beauty provide retailer.
The picture above is what packs of hair appear like.
When somebody says their hair came in a bundle that signifies that their hair was ordered and didn’t come from a beauty supply retailer. Although, these days there are some magnificence supply stores that sell hair in the bundle, but the quality is just not that great.
Bundles of hair (physique wave-L. Jones Hair Assortment)
Earlier than I knew higher, I used to all the time get beauty provide hair. I had never experienced using anything higher so I did not know better existed. Sooner or later somebody asked me why I wasn’t utilizing bundle hair.
Shortly afterwards I used it for the primary time and could instantly tell an enormous distinction in the standard. The hair that was in the bundle felt so a lot better and lasted so much longer that since using it I have not used anything else since. Now I can let you know, from my expertise as well as my clients’ expertise, the differences between the two. Let’s start with pack hair. Here are a few pros and cons to buying beauty provide retailer hair.
– You only get one use out of it- This could possibly be a professional and/or a con depending on how you take a look at it. On one hand in case you are solely going to make use of the hair once and for a brief time period, this could also be best for you. Should you get some pack hair and really prefer it you have to purchase new hair each time you get prepared for a new set up. It is healthier, for my part, to pay a little bit extra and be in a position to make use of the hair more than once.
– It has already been processed (this implies if you happen to attempt to coloration it, it’s practically not possible)
– Not good quality (often much coarser than bundle hair)
– Cheap- Again, this could be a professional if you happen to only want the hair for a short whereas
– Tangles (you constantly must attempt to comb/brush the tangles out)
– Cannot be shampooed without matting up (I’ve seen this happen and it was a catastrophe)
If I had a choice, I would not recommend magnificence provide hair. However, there are a couple of instances where I wouldn’t necessarily be towards it both. If it is your first time sporting weave and you aren’t going to have it in lengthy, or you aren’t fairly ready to commit to the price of bundled hair, you possibly can test the waters with magnificence supply hair. It should allow you to considerably expertise what it can be like to have weave/extensions. It is not like it will make your hair fall out or something, however it’s like selecting between a choice reduce sirloin steak and spam. If you want how your weave/extensions look with magnificence supply hair then chances are high that you’ll love bundled hair. There a handful of brands within the beauty provide store that are not just completely horrible but you need to search for them.
Here are a number of pros to purchasing bundled hair:
– lasts longer
– can be used more than as soon as
– virgin, unprocessed hair (which means it can be colored a number of instances to whatever colour you want)
– does not tangle
– doesn’t shed
– can be shampooed as usually as necessary
– might be coloured
The one con to bundle hair is that it costs extra. But that also depends upon the way you have a look at it. You’re paying extra up entrance however you get to use it for therefore for much longer than pack hair. Hair in L. Jones Hair Collection can be used for one 12 months or extra with proper care and upkeep. So if you divide the price up by the variety of instances you should utilize it, it is unquestionably extra cost effective to get bundled hair. For those who plan on carrying your weave for an extended period of time or are getting a sew in, I extremely suggest that you simply invest in quality hair. However don’t be fooled, simply because your hair is ordered and comes in a bundle does not make it larger high quality. I was once requested to fashion somebody’s hair who already had it sewn in by another person. She was advised that the hair was top quality (bundled) Brazilian virgin hair. Nonetheless, once I shampooed the hair it tangled up and matted up so dangerous that I could not even detangle it. The client needed to go home and cut it out. See pic under:
This image really does not do what was taking place in actual life any justice. As soon as I wet this hair, it got matted and tangled so bad that I couldn’t even stick my finger by it. This was the primary time that I really had to send somebody house with out doing anything to the hair. I spent an hour making an attempt to detangle it and that is how far I bought. I simply had to tug it back in a ponytail and ship her home to cut it out. I would have finished this myself however I only scheduled a sure amount of time for her and trying to detangle the hair took up all of that time and then some and that i had somewhere that I had to be. So so as to search out out in case your bundled hair is any good, first make the particular person you’re ordering from present you pics of their work and if potential ask that they show you a sample of the hair that they will be using. Additionally, in case you are ordering it from a company, google evaluations of the corporate’s hair. This provides you with a clearer picture of how respected the company is. You can too ask the company what grade of hair they use. The higher the number, the higher the grade. At present the highest grade is 10A, however it is usually the most costly. The hair in L. Jones Hair Collection get extensions is 7A & 10A. I supply both for these that really do not need to pay premium pricing however nonetheless want nice quality hair. I don’t recommend anything beneath 6A.
The following question I get asked lots is how many bundles is enough (click here for a detailed answer) If you want to get a full sew in two bundles can be sufficient to do your complete head in some circumstances. Some folks like to use extra to make it look more full. Longer lengths nevertheless, require extra bundles as a result of not as much hair is in them. The best way bundled hair is measured is by weight. Longer hair weighs more so shorter lengths typically have more hair in them. If you’re getting hair longer than 18 inches you’d at the very least need three bundles of hair. If you are on a finances or do not desire it to look extraordinarily full you will get two bundles and be simply high quality.
