FAQs

Frontal Closure Vs Top Closure?

Frontal: goes ear to ear and measure approximately 13"x5"
Top: covers the area that is left out at top "u-shaped leave out" and  measures 3.5"x5"

What is the difference between “weft” hair & “braiding” hair?

Braiding Hair: Also referred to as "Bulk hair"  is loose hair that is used for braiding, ventilating ( constructing lace wigs by hand), fusion,  and many other extension styles. It will come tied in a bundle ready for use, imagine a ponytail.

Weft Hair: Also referred to as "tracks", this is hair that is sewn together to create a weft. Machine wefts are made by sewing strands of hair together with a hair sewing machine. This hair type is used for  weaving. Often used for sewn or bonded (with hair glue) extension into a track ready for the weaving process.

Can I color my hair?

Yes, you can color your hair. Coloring can be damaging to both your hair and your tresses, so please be careful when opting to color your hair.

**Please consult a professional for proper coloring techniques/tips/upkeep.**

 

Can I straighten my hair?

Yes, all of the VTbYOUt tresses can be straightened and return back to the hairs natural form with the application of moisture. **Excessive straightening/heat can be damaging to both your hair and your VTbYOUt Tresses**

How long will my hair last?

With PROPER care your hair can last 6months to a year. Longevity increases with proper upkeep and maintenance. Coloring the hair
is damaging. Make sure to provide proper moisture and be mindful of the upkeep that is required for extensions.

Will the hair tangle/shed like beauty supply hair?

VTbYOUt has ALL the cuticles intact and are in the same direction, which prevents and minimize tangling and matting. With packaged beauty supply hair the cuticles have been removed with harsh chemicals, which strip all the natural nutrients from the hair. We also secure the hair with tight wefts to prevent shedding. Beauty supply hair is no comparison to this grade of hair. Please make sure to properly care for your tresses to ensure the quality remains.

Why should I seal my wefts?

I personally do not seal my wefts. It is good for extra reinforcement. When the bundles are obtained the hair is collected from donors (their ponytails). Before the hair is made into tracks it looks like "braiding hair", then the hair is sewn to make what is known as the "weft". Sealing tracks helps to better keep the hair in place if you cut the track, bring the needle through the track, etc. When the thread is loosened in the weft area or anything is done to alter that foundation the "sealant" will at that time provide extra security.

How do I blend my hair with the Curly Tresses?

Blending is easiest with a side part and is most difficult with a middle part.
Bantu-Knot method = your hair needs to be damp for this blending method. You need to gather your leave out with some of your extensions and create bantu-knots around the perimeter. Whenever you are blending ALWAYS blend your hair with the weave. Never just try to manipulate your leave out on its own. Khiaphierce has a video on this method. You can follow that method, but I recommend blending with the weave as she only twisted her leave out. Grabbing a portion of the weave with a section of you hair will allow it to blend better.

If you use a curling wand, use the end of the wand as it is the smallest part and will help you to get the smallest curls.

I want curly hair, but I don’t know how to pick the lengths.

All textures that are not bone straight are stretched to obtain measurements. The list measurement reflects the hair length while straight. For non-straight textures I recommend selecting a length a minimum of 2 inches longer than lengths you are accustomed to.
 For Example: If you want your curly or wavy hair to fall at 14", Select a 16" bundle. 

Why are there strands of gray hair in my bundles?

Our hair donors vary in age; in the event that a bundle was collected from a donor that is older grey hairs may be present throughout a bundle.

How much hair will I need for my install?

The amount of hair needed varies by the length that you will be using. The longer the hair length the shorter the weft length will be.

  • 14" -18": Install can be achieved with 2 bundles
  • 18" -30": It is recommended to use 3 bundles for an install

Virgin hair simply means that the hair is unprocessed. Our hair is collected from one donor. Virgin hair has not been treated with perms, dye, or bleach. Our hair is NOT chemically treated  (unless requesting a colored product). We supply hair in it's natural state and
guaranteed to be in correct cuticle alignment. The pureness of the hair allows for versatility and INCREASED longevity!
