5 Rules for Buying Weave at the Hair Store

1. If They’re Rude…LEAVE the store

Too many times, the African American community’s insecurities are capitalized on without any respect for the Black dollar. We all know that many people of color purchase weave . I suggest only buying products from a place that respects your buying power!Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.46.00 AM

2. Ask Them to Take the Hair Out of the Package.

You need to feel how the hair flows through your fingers. Can you easily run your fingers from root to tip? Does it tangle when you shake it? If the hair doesn’t flow theres a chance the cuticles are running in different directions, thus limiting the shelf life of the hair extensions. You’ll probably get a good 2.5 weeks out of it at most. Also, if it tangles just from shaking it, you can only imagine what it going to do on the back of your head.Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.43.59 AM

3.  Find Natural Light to View the Hair

Hair stores have horrible lighting. The fluorescent lighting makes the hair look a different color when it would seem in the sunlight. I suggest holding the hair up to a window or somewhere that you can see the hair exactly how it is. Hair stores seldom have a return policy so check everything before buying.Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.43.18 AM

4.  Check Online First

Have an idea of what you want to buy before you go to the store and head online to check the prices. If you check the online prices you’ll be able to see if the price in the store is worth it.Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.44.42 AM
