Hey Ladies,
 
I received my Hype Hair Magazine in the mail and decided to actually READ it instead of just looking at the pictures Embarrassed. There were some examples of quickweaves and they kept saying "protective strips" which I found out were those white wraping papers used to mode down the hair under the dryer.
 
(Sorry no pics but I will try to be decriptive as possible)
 
This may not be new but its the first time I seen a quickweave done w/o that nasty gel mode.
 
The hair was braided back in cornrows, then a stocking cap was put over the head. The lady then placed a paper towel over the ladies head (a paper towel? is what I was thinking when I read this-- so much for "protective strips" lol) Next, the lady put another stocking cap over the paper towel to hold it in place and also to protect the hair from the adhesive.  Lastly, she proceeded to complete the quick weave.
 
I was trying to think of the pros and cons of that paper towel I mean "protective strip" being in between the stocking caps... since its only supposed to be worn for no longer than 2 weeks I guess its no mildew alerts but scratching your head would be a pain I would think. 
 
What do you guys think? Has anyone done it this way before? (Im going to try it, but  yanno opinions is always a good thing)

sounds interesting, but I just refuse to use bonding glue in my hair anymore, I've lost hair so many times trying to do a quick weave

I would think after its completely dry...you can remove it and put it back on...it becomes a WIG...thats what i thought you were suppose to do..i have seen this method before
"just refuse to use bonding glue in my hair anymore"No glue gets on your hair if you apply the stocking cap then the paper towels then the other stocking cap...i would think..there woudlnt be a way for the glue to seep thru all of that

I have had quick weaves before and I had the Sanex protective strips under the stocking cap cap to protect against the seepage of glue.
 
I have seen the stocking cap weave done with a paper towel barrier before. I agree that the style is not to be work more than 2 weeks because anything more than that would cause your hair to sweat and itch under the weave which is a recipe for scalp fungus.

i've seen quick weaves done with the paper towel before and it's supposed to be a barrier between the glue and you're actual hair...it's to catch any glue and stop it from seeping through and onto you're own hair...

the paper towel is the method used by some stylists over the neck strips because the paper towel gives you more coverage as opposed to the neck strips just going along the hairline...although there might be stylists that layer the strips to cover the whole head...

i've used a shower cap then the stocking cap and glue the tracks on the stocking cap...when done the quickweave can be removed and worn as a wig...and the shower cap catches any glue that might seep through

I co-sign what MzKoKO said
 
this is how I use to do mine when i use to make them . I would let the wig fully dry on my head to allow it to take the shape and size of my head ...once completely dried the cap is removed the shower cap removed and the quick weave is now a quick wig....some people however wear it like this for a few days (with the paper barrier) and then remove it for guarenteed fit
 
Now I just buy the weave net and make my instant weaves ..by sewing the wigs last forever...especially if u use good hairWink 
 
i havent been able to keep hair sewed on my head for more than two weeks since i started this back in 2001

With all of that on the head (stocking cap, papertowels, shower cap, etc.)...that doesn't make the weave look bulky? Natures - I think with a quickweave, there is no washing of the hair...because of the glue, etc. I would think it would be a mess to deal with when wet. I've never done nor had one so that's just my guesstimate LOL. I would like to know as well because I have a client that insists that I do one for her....I run from glue.

I have never heard of this method but I have seen where people put the shower cap on and place the stocking cap over the plastic cap and glue the weave to the stocking cap and let it dry and then pull the plastic cap from under the stocking cap and make a wig.
