Does anyone know of or had the one hour weave done.  They say it last for 2 or 3 months,no glue no braid. Please share any information.

^ probably because no one really understands what that is? plus, people call weaves so many things now. i always thought quick weave was with glue, though half-wigs were wigs and not fast weaves or whatever.

too many names anymore, but I still want to know what this is. Maybe do a google and come back to us.

I have heard about in for some time now, but like others no one really say what exactly it is. There is a website, can't recall at the moment, but of course it doesn't explain the technique.

No, you dont have to be  member, but it was convienant for me at the time. She took me at early am hours before work and the hair was provided. She did the install and the removal. But, this was about 4 years ago before I discovered BHM...LOL
It used to be called long hair in 90 mins and it's true to its name.

How natural looking is it scorpio? And is it better then a regular sew-in? Is it expensive?


Posted By: cutescorpio
Date Posted: Jan 15 2010 at 11:35pm
I have some pics, hold on sec....
As far as it being better, it depends on your preference. She leaves out hair between the tracks, so if you want most of your hair braided up or you're natural, its not for you. That's why I stopped going.
It wasn't really expensive considering that the hair is provided for you, but that was a few years ago, so I dont know how the prices are now.

now that is pretty cutescorpio. so how do they do it?


Posted By: javagirl
Date Posted: Jan 16 2010 at 8:46am
did you have styling versatility...could you pull it back (or up?), or part it? were you able to wash and maintain it yourself at home?  Did you ever go swimming/to the beach in it?  Could you, technically, do your relaxer t/u right on top of it and therefore not have to take it out?

FUNNY..I JUST got this install 4 days ago.. it's my 2nd time and I love it! it looks natural and only took 50 mins. start to finish.

I vaugley remember seeing a vid on this before, I think its where they use the string and they sew it in the hair, the way they sew the string in forms something resembling a braid ...

Yeah, this is what I remember.  I did it a couple of years ago.  It didn't work for me though because the string in my hair was too tight plus I don't like to leave hair out.

Thank you dreamz...you're  sweetheart BTWStar
 
Let me see if I can explain...Instead of braids, the hair is twisted with thread (it reminds me of fishing wire). She sews the hair onto the thread and leaves out hair in between each track. So your hair has to permed in order for it to look natural. 
 
I let her do a full head weave one time, but they look wiggy to me. I prefer hair left out.

Because there was so much hair left out, I could do whatever style I wanted. I could wash it and swim in it like my real hair.
 
Now as far as relaxing, I've never tried, but I don't think you would want to. As your new growth comes in, the wire loosens, so you don't want to have it in more than 8 weeks.

Its called the Malaysian sew in. This what get done to my hair. Its braidless and yes the base is made from just hair and thread. Its recommended for ppl with reay short hair or want a very versatile look. I can wear my hair anyway I woud like with no worries of my tracks showing or bulges everywhere.

I'm interested in this and there is a location in Baltimore, so that's not far.

Can someone attest to whether this technique is safe for natural hair?  Does it cause breakage?

On the website in ATL, they say the hair is provided.  I don't know if that applies to all the salons.  But were you able to use hair from your stash or did you use the hair they provided?

This would be a dream right now since I just took out my extensions to give my hair a little bit of a rest.

I used my own hair not that I dont trust the salon hair I just like to know my hair is completely clean and up to my standards before install.

Thanks..  I appreciate your responses. 
I learned later this evening that all it is - is just a wig attachment that you can braid into your own hair....I think?

This technique reminds me of the dot to dot method.
