Hair Extensions For Black Hair

Breanna Rutter


Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of one of my most popular books The Natural Hair Bible and founder of this video is going to be answering an email question that Vanessa sent me, Vanessa emailed me saying that she's having a hard time choosing between different types of extensions and weaves because she's not sure what is actually appropriate to achieve a certain type of look or style so what I am going to do is give you some guidelines and some tips and suggestions that’s going to help you to figure out what weave or extension is best under specific circumstances so first off if you are new to wearing weaves or you want to learn how to actually do different sewing techniques Ior learn how to just sew in a weave I suggest that you first began working with human hair now human hair weave is usually the cheapest weave that you can find online and in your beauty supply store the thing is that this weave is of a lower quality than different types of extensions which makes it more affordable and also it gives you the option to experiment with coloring cutting and styling without sacrificing hair that cost a lot of money now I can’t give you a price range because this hair is different it may be very cheap or even it may be very expensive but usually you should pay any more than it would cost for the top-quality hair extensions in order to begin experimenting using this kind of hair so I suggest human hair weave when you are learning how to do sew ins or you're just brand-new to extensions and you want to see how it is to work with hair before you actually take a bigger plunge now the second thing that I am going to suggest is that you're doing braids or twists you have to use braiding hair now some people call this hair extension hair some people call it weave hair but is just called braiding hair just to stop any confusion that some individuals may have when referring to this kind of hair is also called bulk hair because it's not attached to weft a weft is this thin piece of material that the hair hangs from that is required to actually sew around when you're sewing extensions so the more you get into the world of extensions and weaves you will understand the different terminology and terms or if not be sure to refer to my website if you want to learn more about them now as far as braids and twist if you are wearing style is like this. Here I'm wearing crochet Senegalese is what I uses regular braiding hair in order to install my extensions now there so many different kinds of braiding hair that you can use and everyone has a preference and is also depends on the look that going for as well as the texture and shine of their hair for my hair is best that I use kanekalon braiding hair for someone who has more silky her hair more shinier hair is better that they used Toyokalon braiding hair for someone else it may be better that they expressions braiding hair which is a little bit more stiff and more bouncy and also has more body now for some who have fine hair using expressions hair may not be the best bet is often times it can feel heavy for some if you have fine hair I rather suggest that you use kanekalon braiding hair because it's more light in weight to help you to extend the wear of your braids and twists so the first thing was to use human hair extensions or human hair weave which is the cheapest to learn how to start experimenting with coloring and cutting and also with just experimenting if you're new to weaves then the second thing is when you are doing braids and twists you got to make sure that you are using braiding hair and it will depend on your texture and the shine of your hair or even the look you're going for now the very last tip that I want to suggest is that when you're seeking hair extensions of the top-quality that’s going to withstand years of wear depending on who you're getting them from or the way that they were manufactured in different things like that is virgin hair extensions Virgin hair extensions are extensions that usually last the longest and the best way to tell if they are the truth thing and they withstand the test of time is to just wear them you have to see if they want to keep up for longer than a couple of months and even make it to the year mark so you have a good pair of extensions on your hands and extensions of that quality usually cost a lot of money some people have to buy just a couple of bundles of virgin extensions to put into their head and he can cost anywhere from $1000 or more so this just depends on your taste and also depends on the budget you're willing to go for and the quality you're willing to pay for so I hope that all this advice is help you to understand what extensions is best for certain situations and how to go about choosing certain weaves and braiding hair that you want to do when trying to do different looks continue to learn more about these different things so that way you can always make the best choices and not spend more money what you actually need to so thanks Vanessa for your email and also thank you are for watching me for any of you go make sure to sign up for my email is so they can be automatically answered in my giveaways and also only their you can receive exclusive content so until then I will see all of you in my very next video
