How many bundles of hair, do you need for a full head weave?
As you sit and ponder these questions in your head before your purchase:
- “Do I need 3 ounces of hair for a sew in ? 4 oz ? 6oz ? or maybe I need 8oz” ?
- “Does the amount of hair go per pack or bundle” ?
- “How much hair comes in one bundle” ?
- “What hair type do I need for a voluminous look” ?
- “What do your personally consider a full sew in” ?
- “Is all your hair braided up, even your leave-out” ?
- “Do you have your edges out” ?
- “What about the crown” ?
- “Do I need a Lace Frontal or a Silk Base Closure or not” ?
“So do you need 3 ounces of hair for a sew in ? 4 oz ? 6oz ? or maybe you require 8oz” .
Many of our customers ask these questions all the time when placing an order for hair extensions. There are many factors that go into answering these questions. Also, while you ponder your options in how many ounces you need, please note that 1 bundle = 4 oz = 113.4g
First – Make sure you are aware if your bundles are a full 4 ounces. (1 pack of hair/ 1 bundle) will traditionally be 4 ounces.
The bundles at our online store are double weft , so you will not need to go over board with 4-5 bundles unless you are styling two different individuals.
Second – Double wefts are better quality and they give both body and securely sealed bundles. These types last exceptionally longer.
Bundle hair length, hair style, head shape/size, hair texture and hair fullness all play a major role in the decision making. (See hair length chart below)
Choosing Bundles with Closures
Keeping in mind that curly and wavy hair textures will fall at a different length, from a straight hair texture ( as depicted above), so going forward with your desired hair texture by length you should refer to the chart above and utilize a measuring tape.
Have the measuring tape fall from your crown to the desired length then proceed to selecting your bundles.
For more clarity when purchasing your bundles with either a 360 Lace frontal- You will need 2 bundles that should equal to 100 grams each bundle. It doesn’t matter the hair texture, two bundles is more than enough. As the 360 Lace frontal is an entire circumferential closure hair piece.
When choosing your bundles with a 13×4 , 13×6 inches Lace frontal. Base your decision on the space left from your crown to nape ( typically 2-3 bundles).
When purchasing your bundles with a standard 4×4 inches or 3.5×4 inches lace closure ( whether silk top lace closure or standard all lace closure)
Always going back to making sure your bundles are 100 grams each- You can purchase 2-4 bundles as these types of closures are smaller pieces placed strategically to close off exposing wefts either at the front of the hairline , towards the side , or even at the crown.
Seeking a well versed, educated not to mention licensed professional hairstylist will always guide you towards your ultimate styling goals.
Bundle Machine Wefts Hair Lengths
Virgin hair bundles are measured by grams or ounces. Be aware that hair lengths ranging from 8 inches – 14 inches will have more horizontal length on the weft, thus you’ll need less bundles or packs of hair to achieve your styling option for a full head. The longer hair lengths in the ranges of 16 inches – 30 inches carry more weight with their vertical length, In other words, the longer the hair length your styling option desired, the more bundles you need. My most popular sales come on the form of bundle kits where you choose the different length options and your choice of Lace Frontal and Top Closure if your desired styling option require those hair pieces.
Hair Texture Choice
For the penny pinching savvy shoppers, hair texture decision choice is a option to consider. You can get away with less wefts by choosing these textures tight kinky curly, romance curls, the newest trend “funmi curls”, body curls which can be teased after styling to achieve a beautiful and bouncy look or kinky textures. The body/density of these curl patterns will make your hair look full, even with less wefts sewn in.
