Micro Fine Hair Weave FAQ

As long as your hair is more than 3 inches long, you are a possible candidate for a hair weave. In fact, for very short hair, a weave is usually more suitable as the hair is added in wefts and so it is much easier to create a realistic density, as opposed to adding hair in individual strands. You can look at our image gallery to compare your own hair length and get a better idea of what sort of styles can be achieved.
When you first have your hair weave put in, it will probably be very noticeable to you at first. However, after a few days, you will barely even notice it’s there. To avoid your hair weave being too heavy, it is important not to add an unreasonable amount of hair as this will cause unnecessary pressure and strain on your roots and scalp.
It is very easy to colour your hair whilst wearing a hair weave. If you need to do your roots, simply section your hair as usual and follow the instructions supplied with your hair colour/dye. However, you may find it easier to visit a hair salon for your colour service.
Hair weaves generally last from around 6 to 8 weeks. At this point, you can return to us to have your hair weave tightened. This involves undoing your braids, re-braiding, and then re-sewing the hair into a new position, giving you another 6 to 8 weeks to enjoy them!
Because there are no chemicals or glues used to attach the hair weave, it is perfectly safe to wash your hair weave everyday.
Of course. Sweating excessively will not affect your hair weave. Make sure you use a good quality shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair looking fresh.
No, a hair weave is not vulnerable to heat. Just remember to protect the hair with a leave-in conditioner or other suitable hair product with a sun protection factor.
A hair weave can withstand the same heat as your natural hair. Therefore, you are free to use heated styling tools on your hair weave. Just ensure you use a high quality heat protection product to protect your hair.
No. You are free to use any products you choose. Feel comfortable to experiment with what works for you and your new style.
Yes. Your hair weave is not vulnerable to chlorine or salt water. Just remember to protect your extension hair to avoid excessive drying out. If you thoroughly wet your hair before entering the pool/sea, your hair will not absorb as much water.
Whilst wearing a hair weave, it is easiest to wash your hair standing upright in the shower. Tipping your head upside down can occasionally cause the hair to become tangled.
Yes, daily brushing and combing is essential for keeping your hair weave tangle free.
You can leave your hair loose or tie it up overnight depending on what suits you. A silk pillowcase can be handy as, unlike cotton, it does not absorb as much moisture. See our Micro Fine Hair Weave page for top tips on looking after your hair weave. To get an idea of the styles you can achieve with a hair weave, have a look at our image gallery.
The extension hair used for the weaves are attached to wefts are applied in rows. This basically looks like a curtain of hair. Some sections of your hair are then braided. These braids are used as the base for the hair weave. The wefts are then sewn in with a needle and thread onto the braided base.

It’s pretty easy to match the colour of your own hair to the hair weave. During the consultation, we use fibre hair swatches to indicate what colours are already present in your hair and then use this to match it to the required human hair. This allows us to get a ‘true colour’ match’.
The extension hair we use at Secret Extensions is generally available up to 24 inches. The longer the extensions, the more overall extra weight you are carrying. For the health of your scalp, we would recommend going no longer than 20 inches. Ideally 16-18 inches is good as a standard for maximum length.
The short answer is no. You can add slices of colour to emphasise your existing highlights and create bold colour effects but highlights are not possible as your crown area is left free to cover the hair weave wefts. You can see what colours of hair weave are available here.
Your stylist should have no problem working with a hair weave. Your hair weave will be applied in neat, even rows which your stylist will find easy to work with.
