Typically a full sew-in with our Virgin Hair needs on average 2-3 bundles. If you are looking for a more bouncy and voluminous look it is recommended to go with 4 bundles. Keep in mind that since the hair is sold by total weight the rule is typically the longer the hair, the shorter the weft. All of our wefts are machine double wefted, and still can be very full.
CAN I COLOR THE EXTENSIONS?
KVHair is 100% unprocessed virgin hair. You can color the hair to your liking, however once virgin hair is treated in any way it is then no longer considered 100% virgin hair. For your color treated hair to last as regular virgin hair it is very important to keep the color treated hair conditioned and moisturized. It is recommended that any chemical processing should be done by a professional or at least consulted by one to prevent mistakes or damage to the hair.

ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS?
It is recommended to shampoo and condition your hair at least once a week or once every 2 weeks. It is recommended to not massage your extensions as that can ruin the wefts. It is also not recommended to brush through the hair when wet. However, you can comb through the hair while it has conditioner in it, starting with the ends working your way up to the scalp.
It is recommended to use products minimally to avoid build up on the extensions. Our hair is pure 100% unprocessed virgin hair, it typically does well with no additional products used. Avoid alcohol based products to avoid drying out your beautiful virgin hair extensions. It is also recommended to let your extensions air dry, and it will give them a more natural look.
WILL IT LOOK NATURAL?
The extent to which your sew in weave will look natural will depend on a couple of factors. The hairdresser's experience, the quality of his weave installation jobs, the quality of the additional hair used for a weave and the final cut are the deal breakers which determine the outcome of the sew in hairstyle and its appearance. It is recommended to not buy cheap synthetic hair extensions that shed, tangle easily, and only last 1 week. However, it is recommended to purchase KVHair that is still affordable, has minimum to no shedding and can last much longer than synthetic hair.
DOES THE HAIR SHED?
We understand that weave shedding is a common problem that many of use face when dealing with our extensions. KVHair has minimum to no shedding but here are some tips to prevent additional shedding if necessary.
Sealing the hair is a big and easy way to prevent any kind of shedding to take place. Using a sealant before installing your hair is crucial to preventing shedding. "Sealing" is the process of locking in the hair at the weft with a sealant, typically a liquid adhesive or clear glue. In our haircare section you can find a popular sealant that is known in the weave community to work wonders.
The more styling you do, the more you'll be pulling on your hair, the more shedding can occur. If you're a stylist doing a sew-in, it is recommended to avoid sewing the needle straight through the track. This not only causes shedding, but it also decreases the life span of your wefts.
