Wefts are the basis of amazing hair weaves, and sealing them is perhaps the best way to prevent them from shedding. You may need to have your hair professionally re-wefted if your weave has been installed for a while. Your Brazilian body wave hair is inclined to shedding right after it’s installed and this is the case for any wefted hair.
While it’s nearly impossible to prevent shedding, sealing the hair at the wefts before installing the weave can considerably reduce the chances. It is best to choose high quality wefts from the start in order to dramatically reduce the amount of shedding of your Brazilian body wave hair. Some people use fabric glue or other alternatives to seal the wefts, but these may not be able to withstand exposure to oil, heat and water.
Therefore, it is best to ask your stylist for a quality weft sealer, and one that will also bond quickly and leave the area flexible after drying. There are several dedicated weft sealants that provide a secure bond without leaving a white crust or residue along the weft. To apply the sealant, place a cloth or newspaper on a large surface such as dining table or counter top.
Next, lay the hair weave on the surface, and use something sturdy to anchor the ends of the hair down so that you can see the wefts and prevent them from tangling as you apply the sealant. Apply the sealant directly over the stitches of the weft, and glue from the top for a tighter seal.
