The best to me is HE101 weft sealer. It can be bought at www.hairextensions101.com.

I bought the large bottle and it is enough to seal 8 oz twice w/ some left over.

I actually like HE101 and Mane Depot's sealants. Reason being, that the viscosity of the sealant is nice and thick. It's easy to work with. It dries clear, and it works.  HE101 will let you order tinted sealant, but I suggest you use a few drops of hair dye to change the color of your sealant to match your weft.
 
 
The thing with sealants is that the safe ones (non-toxic, for use on fabrics, washable, etc.) are often resin-based, silicone based, or latex based. The problem with that is, as we wear our hair, the oils from our hair breaks down the seal over time.  I've had to re-seal wefts more than once.
 
When it comes to using sealants that arent marketed for sealing (nail polish, crazy glue, culk, hot glue gun, etc.) you still can run into the oil break down, but also, you can damage your wefts by over applying.

8 oz, yes.  Anything over that I'd get a second bottle.  They are selling 1 oz bottles now. 
 
 
Don't seal by a fan or air conditioner/heater.  The sealant thickens pretty quickly if you do (blowing air on the brush), making it difficult to brush onto the weft.  Unless you use a syringe but I've never sealed that way.
 
The product is the consistency of fingernail polish but it soaks right into the weft.

HE 101 Is the best.
 
Mane Depots is okay.. but it dries opaque

No, the hair can be installed as soon as the sealant is dry, which doesn't take long at all.

I just ordered some HE101 weft sealant like 3 days ago. I was having trouble with the checkout because I was doing international shipping to th UK. I emailed Sherrie and she is the sweetest. Got back to me super fast and sent me a paypal invoice.
 
I've heard that this sealant is the best so I can't wait to get it. Aleene's Stop fraying takes too damn long to dry!

clear acrylic sealer and you can get it from walmart. Its by mod something but its in the craft section. You can seal within 10 sec bc its in a spray paint can. goes on clear and no shedding.

it takes less than 5 minutes for dritz to dry but the only issue is sometimes it can leave a white residue. get some clear acrylic sealer from walmart in the craft section. its in a spray paint can.

I will go to Walmart today to look for the clear acrylic sealer....But I read somewhere on the board about adding the rit dye to dritz to eliminate the white residue..

@mocherry that is too much work. You can seal within 10 seconds with the clear acrylic sealer. You can also purchase it at any fabric store but walmart and target are closer to me. Smile

you wont be dissapointed. i just sealed my friends hair last week when i did her hair. she was skeptical and i was like i do it all the time. she said she hasnt experienced any shedding and her hair was shedding before i redid it. it will be  your best friend and its so fast to spray and go!

I wanted to get some HE101 but it wouldnt give me shipping price to the UK so i assumed you couldn't ship over here.

How much did the shipping cost you?

When I wore lace wigs I would use the acrylic spray in the can on my knots.

you spray it on the weft not the hair in a straight line. its not hard at all. I usally have someone hold the hair and i spray it or vice versa.

Not sure. I never sprayed it on a wig so i dont know how it held up my for my wefts ive had no issues.

Interesting, so if I was to use something like a long sheet of foil as a guide over the hair, you think that would work?


Posted By: ifeyini
Date Posted: Feb 23 2011 at 8:32am

^^^^ LOLLOLLOL you dont have to use foil at all. if you can get someone to hold the weftfor you horizontally you and spray it on the weft and it instantly dries. remember its not a paint its a clear acrylic sealer so if you get it on the hair by accident its fine. it wont damage or do anything to the hair.

Send an email via the "contact us" section on the site. Sherrie emailed me back so quickly even on a saturday! For regular post (which might take a couple of weeks) it's $6.50 and express is $15. I did express because I need to seal in a couple of weeks and didn't wanna take the chance with snailmail. It should be here soon.

I love the HE101 sealant.  This is my 1st choice.  I have tried the Mane Depot sealant and I don't like it.  It wasn't as durable IMO as the HE101.  Also, the leftovers dried hard in the bottle.  I was unable to use it after a month.  Typically when I seal with HE101 I get at least 3 installs before resealing as a precautionary measure.

I recently resealed some hair using Dritz.  It dries clear and the nozzle helps with the application precision.  I would definitely use this as a less expensive alternative.

So far my favorite is HE101. However, I also love Aleene's Stop Fraying, which can be picked up at JoAnn's or any fabric store.
 
Sealing Wefts is a must and I absolutely LOVE both of the products that I mentioned above.

i have aleenes, he101 and ep's weft sealer . aleens is ok but it will break down from the oils but use very little so its not clumpy because it does get shiney. he101 will also look shiney but is a great sealant but you may only want to seal one side and ive yet to use ep's sealant. oh, ive also tried dritz which imo is the worst and it flakes offDead

This is what I use and will not turn back. I put a pretty thick amount on my weft so it took like 2-3 days for it to cure/dry. But I am very satisfied with it. I use to use Krazy glue but it made the weft hard. And now that I am not cutting my weft and just bending it when I sew it I need something that is strong but malleable. This wins hands down

Leave it alone.  It leaves a white/hard clear residue.  When it dries it dries like the glue from a hot glue gun.

Ok so far I've only used  HE101 sealant on my wefts, but both times I used it, I was sealing "quality" hair with pretty decent weft construction, so the lack of shedding could be due mostly to the fact that the wefts were fairly sturdy.  So now my real question is would any of you use HE101 sealant to seal BSS hair? LOL  Just curious!

I have been using Alenes however it turns an odd color when wet so I can't use it anymore. Does your HE101 stay clear? How about that stuff you guys are buying from Walmart?

If using krazy glue to seal, if you plan on sewing around the wefts, does it really matter if the wefts are hard?

Thank you for this post because you have given me an idea of something to try. I use the Mod Podge puzzle sealer on my jigsaw puzzles after I complete them.  I have oodles of bottles of that stuff. It never occurred to me that it could be used to seal wefts, but now that you mention the Mod acrylic sealer, it reminded me that the Mod sealer I use on my puzzles dries clear, and definitely seals puzzles together nicely so it might work on wefts. . I am going to try using some to seal a weft. The stuff I have is in a bottle with an applicator brush.

You can, I've done both or one side depending on how the weft is constructed, whether it looks sturdy, and is/isn't shedding before sealing.

Heck no.   Go old school (clear nail polish or super glue).  HE101 on BSS hair.  LOL

This might sound weird or unconventional but I use nail glue. Its cheap and it works. Just beware of the fumes they can be strong! Also don't glue on the part that you put the needle through glue the portion right underneath the actual weft. If you put the glue right on the weft it will be too hard to push the needle through.

The 1st time I sealed, I used Aleene's Stop Fray on both sides of the weft and it dried completely clear. My hair stylist complained though saying that it was too hard for her to work the needle through the weft and that she was probably going to have to sew around the weft. I think I might have applied it too thick, since I was just applying using the bottle applicator. And I did not like that when wet the wefts turned a whitish-blue color, but later dried clear.

On my new install, I sealed with Aleene's OK To Wash-It,  I thought it would work better and stay clear when wet, since it was made to be able to go in the water and be washed. I also mixed some black Rit Dye liquid in it to, it turned the adhesive a dark blue color, but it dried completely black. I liked that the liquid Rit Dye thinned out the adhesive a little bit, so it was able to seep into the wefts better and I took off the cotton ends of Q-tips and just used the plastic stick to work in the adhesive into the wefts. This worked wonders!! I only sealed on the side that would be towards my head this time too. So far, I have had my install in for 5 days and have experienced No Shedding at all! I am very happy with my results. I purchased everything at Michael's Arts and Crafts. The Rit Dye and Aleene's OK To Wash-It came out to be under $7. The last test will be what color the wefts turn when I wash.

The sealer worked great....Only thing is the vapors.....They are SOOOO intense. I didnt comb the hair for 2 days, but when I did it shedding a little, but from the 12", but I am thinking because its where I cut a piece to go around my leavout....

Other than that I havent had any shedding.

Question: When dry does the HE101 sealer keep the weft flexible?

i dont have much shedding from my sealant either. i love my clear acrylic sealer. no issues. the only issue i have with my hair is when i dont comb it and go to sleep without a bonnet but shedding isnt a problem. you should try it. much easier and dries instantly

Is it flexible like when you apply alene's stop fraying sealant. I have the alene's and as stated earlier i think the oil in my hair is breaking the sealant down. But I dont cut the wefts when im doing the sewn in so I need for my weft to be flexible.

It will flexible enough to fold over the wefts. Even though I don't self install, I keep the hair bundle tight and I never had a problem w/ folding the hair to make the bundle.

I plan on using this and the acrylic spray that was mentioned for my next install! Aleene's, HE 101, etc have never worked well for me. Fingers crossed!

His hair isnt as bad as others, pretty minimal in comparison but I always recommend sealing. Walmart carries a lot of this stuff in store as well.

How do you use the spray on the wefts? Doesn't it get on the hair?

I place my wefts on something disposable (towel, bag, mat, etc.) and spray VERY lightly on the edge of the wefts.

Oh like put a towel to cover the hair, but leave the wefts out.. then spray?

I've used acrylic sealer on my lace wigs, frontals and closures but never thought to try it on my wefts. I've used HE101, Dritz and Aleene's, and though I love HE101 sometimes shipping is a turn off. I like Dritz and Aleenes and personally don't have a problem using either one, I noticed SS has one, I may try that out.

Did you see the warning on the back of that can that explains that it is toxic/hazardous to health?

I didn't but I'm not surprised. Kids where I live try and get high off this stuff so the lady at AC Moore asked to see my ID and unlock it for me Shocked but i wore a painter's mask when i used it, and I used it outside. So far I have barely any shed hairs so thank you for the tip ifeyini!! This saved me a bunch of time and money!

clear acrylic sealer and you can get it from walmart. Its by mod something but its in the craft section. You can seal within 10 sec bc its in a spray paint can. goes on clear and no shedding.

Thank you for this post because you have given me an idea of something to try. I use the Mod Podge puzzle sealer on my jigsaw puzzles after I complete them.  I have oodles of bottles of that stuff. It never occurred to me that it could be used to seal wefts, but now that you mention the Mod acrylic sealer, it reminded me that the Mod sealer I use on my puzzles dries clear, and definitely seals puzzles together nicely so it might work on wefts. . I am going to try using some to seal a weft. The stuff I have is in a bottle with an applicator brush.

 
good idea. please let us know how it turns out!


I reallyyy wanted to get the Mod Pdge Cleary acrylic spray & I was until I got up to the counter & was told I needed to be 18 so my mom came back with me & we started to read the can & it said it's known to cause birth defects in california, Idk what that meant, but it scared me because I am pregnant so I couldn't get it :( SO I was going to get the alenes craft something pen but I got the mod podge puzzle saver stuff. I really hope this works. but since it is waterbased do you think that means it will wash out? it says waterbase sealer, glue & finish. I hope this works . Have you tried it yet? i'm doing it right now

Instead of sealing has anyone sent hair to Sam to reinforce wefts? If so what's been your experience and can you pretty please send me Sam's info?

Thanks divas!
