It doesn't really matter as long as you are delicate when washing.  You can wash the next day if you like or have the need to...so no, you don't have to wait two weeks.

Thank you for answering my question!

ps i have a medium to big head. thanks in advance.

The wefts are offered in 7oz? Or...your buying 2 packs (3.5x2). With straight hair i'd get 3 packs cause you can always cut it or take some out if it's too much, plus if its not enough you don't want to pay the $25 shipping for one pack of hair.

Thanks anuli, they quoted me the price for 7oz, i guess they come in 3.5 a pack. i'm buying another pack don't want to take chances.
ps. your avi is funny and disgusting lolTongue

Before you order, ask the cv if the wefs are doubled.  CLY looks most natural if you split the wefts first (seal your wefts!).  7-8 oz of light yaki can be quite heavy looking.  If you split the wefts, 7 oz will likely be more than enough.
 
eta:  What lengths are you getting?

Thanks for doing this post!  There is so much information that I am getting kind of confused Smile  Anyways....I would like to get a full weave to promote hair my natural hair growth.  My hair is natural, no chemicals.  My question is how would I go about washing it and making sure my natural hair is being taken care of.  (Making sure it is staying moisturized, not breaking off, etc...)
 
Also it seems as though some ladies braid a net into their hair underneath the weave so the tracks are attached to the net and not their hair.  Would you recommend doing that?  Does it make that much of a difference?
 
Sorry if the questions seem kind of juvenile but I am new to the process. Thank youSmile

*sigh*

I have so many questions but I am scared I'll get the "we've discussed this before...do a search" answer Cry


Could someone please adopt me... a weave noob?Big smile  I'm seriously thinking about going back to weaves for protective hair styles until the end of 2011.    I've scoured bhm archives, other hair forums, sites that sell hair, youtube, recent hair threads (but then I get caught up in pics/random foolishness and get all off track)...


...............but  I still have some questions about blending and full weave installs on my own hair.  


Please PM me if you can spare a few minutes!Big smile Geek Purty please???

LOVE the site!  It is overwhelming at first but I'm trying to learn.
 
I have a BoBraz question - I got my first BoBraz two months ago and it's official - I'm loving it!  We did not cut the hair but it has shedded quite a bit.  When we first sewed it in - the hair was past my shoulders and now two and a half months later it's on the middle of my neck.  Still looks good BUT I want to keep the length.
 
I am reading that I need to seal the weft (with dritz), let it dry and sew the weft in.  I got that!  What I want to know is:  This dritz will alleviate the shedding when I comb and brush the hair, correct?  I know it will still shed but I guess just not as much.
 
My weave artist (and she truly is) recommends I just wet the hair and not use product.  I used all kinds of product on it - NoodleHead, Twisted Sister, Curl Activator, Soft Sheen products (I am NOT affliated with any products), etc.  What is your recommendation on shampooing and maintaining this gorgeous style.
 
Thanks!
