How to Prep Your Hair for A Quick Weave Slay


It doesn’t matter the texture, length or color if you need something done less than two hours a quick weave may be the best option.

I know what you’re going to say “Charlie I can’t take that glue” that would be a concern for me as well. However, there are products and techniques that a stylist use to prevent your hair from being touched by the glue which is also known as the molding technique.

What is the Molding Technique?

When it comes to molding the hair, it’s about making sure the hair is flat and creating a flat hard surface to prevent the hair from being touched by the glue. Depending on the length of the hair you can either braid the hair down use Ampro gel and Robert Diamond Bond Protective Shield to start the molding process.

There are so many different ways to do this process, and none of them are incorrect as long as you are protecting the hair.

Below are the tools that you will need for the molding technique:

  • Rattail comb
  • Ampro Gel
  • Wrap strips
  • Gorilla Snot
  • stocking caps
  • Spritz
  • Robert Diamond Bond Protective Shield
    scissors
  • Bonding hair glue (White or Black)
