Hi Kenya - glad your hair arrived.  I posted it express so you would get it overnight. 

You can reinforce hand-tied wefts with "Fray check".  you can get this at any fabric store.  You definately will want to use it if you cut the wefts, but also many people reinforce the entire length of it just to be safe.

Please be sure to post pics of your install!

Kenya, you can reinforce with FrayBlock. It is better than Fraycheck because it dries clear and won't turn white.

I like using nailgel glue on the ends. Not regular nail glue, sometimes it dries too sharp. If you can manage to find a matte black nail polish or matte clear nail polish that often works to reinforce the entire length of the weft.  I reinforce this way because I comb my hair far more than I should.

I heard about using clear nail polish too. I think I would try that.
