ShockedTake it back to the store. Tolune & Formaldehyde are not healthy for the nails nor contact with the skin, and most nail polish excludes it nowadays including the Brucci that I get for sealing so if your bottle lists it, I would exchange it, I know that the brand "NYC" at the drugstore is tolune & formaldehyde free...any cheapo bottle of polish that does not include those ingredients will do.

Wuz up with 'sealing the wefts'?  I'm a weave wearer, been wearing sew-ins for over 8 yrs now, but never have I heard of this! (I'm so excited I found this website!! Big%20smile)   I'm also from a city in FLA where people still wear up-dos too, so that could be the reason!  What's the purpose of this?  I'm always up to trying new things, especially if its gonna benefit my hair!!



LOL I was the same way cuz I never heard of this before I started readin about it heere.   It helps keep the hair in the weft.  I want to Sallys and got some black fingernail polish for under a buck and viola!!! I aint payin no $10 and shipping for somethin out there and i don't know what it is!!  I lay the weft out and brush it on the sides of the wefting and on top and it was dry super quick.  I read where wefts turn white after washing but that hasn't happened with the black polish at all!!

Formaldehyde is a carcinogen (cancer causing agent). I make sure my nailpolish does not have it or toulene.

I agree.. and I'll add this.. Not only is nail polish not strong enough to seal wefts, it may not stand up to water, heat, and oils.. (all the things your hair is subjected to from normal styling)
 
If I was dealing with BSS hair I guess I wouldn't care, but if it's good quality hair that I am sealing I wouldn't want to use a cheap sealer. Plus I am VERY particluar not use anything that would not be good for the extensions hair and my natural hair. Personally I will pay good money and shipping for a GOOD sealer that will stand up to heat and water, and most importantly a good sealer is strong enough to seal wefts and will LAST without touching up or re-applying it.. (After all sealing wefts is a PITA, so I really don't want to have to re-seal hair because I used a "cheap" sealer)
 
As for white wefts... Well I'm gonna keep repeating this.. 
Quote My wefts turned white.. What now??

I hear this question asked over and over again.. So here’s my take on it.. The color of the wefts really shouldn’t matter since with a good install they will not be seen.. (seriously.. if you can see your wefts, you have bigger issues than white wefts..LOL)

However, for those who are really worried about it, you can always add a little POWDERED (not liquid) Rit dye to your weft sealer of choice. This will tint the sealer, and solve the”problem”.
