Hair Weft

When attaching a weft, you choose the type of insertion method you wish to use. The weft has a curtain-like shape with a double-stitched end and can be attached using methods such as weavingmicrorings, adhesive or clips, all according to your needs and wishes.  

Attaching your  weft with microrings  

Yon can use microrings to attach your weft. You attach your weft to your own hair using small silicone-coated metal rings that you fasten in place with the help of pliers. The microrings are available in several colours to match your hair  extensions. Before inserting the hair, you should wash your hair with Rapunzel  shampoo. Avoid conditioner and  styling products, and allow the hair to dry thoroughly before insertion.

This is how

  1. Create a horizontal parting. Measure and cut the weft according to the length of the parting. Secure the ends of the weft by resealing the edges with adhesive or needle and thread, so that the hair does not detach from the weft. 
  2. Use hairgrips to secure the extension of your desired length to your own hair. 
  3. Put a microring onto the needle, then open the hook.
  4. Take some of your own hair and some hair from the weft using the hook. Then pull the hair through the microring. (You should feel some resistance, otherwise you have taken too little hair on the hook and the hair may slip out.) 
  5. Press the microring together using the pliers. Press quite firmly. The microring should become almost flat.

Removing your weft 

When removing the weft, use the same pliers as for insertion. The hair should be completely dry. To minimise damage to your own hair, you should never pull on the hair. Follow our instructions to make the process as smooth and easy as possible. It’s a good idea to section your hair in the same way as when you put in  the weft. 

This is how

  1. Hold the microring with the pliers.  
  2. Open the attachment by grasping the  microring  at the ends. The ring then takes on an oval/round shape again. 
  3. Carefully pull out  the microring. 
  4. Repeat for all the sections individually until you have removed all the pieces.And you’re done! 

Make your own  Clip-on set 

Do you want to decide on the length of your Clip-on hair yourself?   With a weft, it’s possible.   

This is how

  1. Create a horizontal parting where you want the extensions to sit. Measure and cut   the weft according to the length of the parting.   Secure the ends of the weft by resealing the edges with adhesive or needle and thread,  so  that the hair does not detach from the weft.   
  2. Sew the clips  onto  the weft. Depending on the length  of the weft,   you will need  1-4 clips per weft. Use  enough  clips to distribute  the weight    of the weft as evenly as possible on your own hair.  
  3. Follow  our clip-on guide  on how to  attach   and care  for your  hair.  A clip-on set is a temporary hair extension or thickening, which is used occasionally and should be removed before sleeping, training or showering. 

Weaving – Sewing on your weft 

If you’re going to sew on your hair using the weaving method, you can do so in several ways. If you’re unsure, you can always ask your hairdresser for help and advice for your hair type. Wash your hair with Rapunzel shampoo before insertion, but avoid conditioner and styling products. Allow the hair to dry. It  should be completely dry before insertion.

This is how

  1. Part your hair and take a section of it. 
  2. Use this section to braid a tight, French braid. 
  3. Start on one side and braid to the middle.  Secure  the braid with a small transparent rubber band and then braid the hair from the other side. 
  4. Measure out and cut the weft so that it fits the length of the whole parting you created. Secure the ends of the weft using a needle and thread to prevent the hair from coming out of the weft. 
  5. Then with a threaded bent needle, gently sew the weft onto the entire braid. 
  6. Securely attach the ends of the weft. 
  7. Repeat for the other pieces until you achieve the desired result. 

Styling tip! 

As your hair is braided tight to the scalp and then covered with extensions, it takes longer to dry. After washing your hair, you should pay  special  attention to make sure that it’s actually dry  
– a good idea is to section the hair when drying it. This makes it easier to get to the concealed   attachments.

Removing your weave extensions 

Removing a weave extension is easy. Use smaller scissors.

  1. Carefully cut the threads that hold the weft in place.   
  2. Repeat the procedure, parting by parting. 
  3. Then loosen the rubber bands that hold the braided hair together and brush through it. 

Attaching your weft with adhesive 

If you have thicker, textured hair, you can also use an adhesive to attach your  weft. As some people are sensitive to adhesive, it may be a good idea to test it on your hand prior to use to see if any reaction/redness occurs. Do this 48  hours before inserting the hair. 

This is how

  1. Start by sectioning the hair, starting at the nape of the neck. Measure and cut the weft according to the length of the parting. Secure the ends of the weft by resealing the edges with adhesive or needle and thread to prevent the hair from coming out. 
  2. Apply adhesive to the upper edge of the weft and along the parting. 
  3. Then press the weft to the adhesive on the parting. Hold until the adhesive is dry and the weft sits securely in place. 
  4. Repeat for the other pieces until you achieve the desired result. 

Removing a glued weft   

Use remover to dissolve the adhesive used to attach the weft. The remover is oil based and specially designed to dissolve the adhesive.     

  1. Start by sectioning the hair in the same way as when you put in the weft. 
  2. Apply  remover to the attachments. 
  3. Leave  the remover  on for a few minutes. 
  4. Using a pin  tail comb, gently prise away the weft from your own  hair. 
  5. If necessary, apply more  remover. Avoid pulling out the extensions. 
  6. Any residue can be combed out, sometimes with the help of additional  remover. 

Washing the weft 

So that your extensions stay beautiful for as long as possible, we recommend you follow our care instructions. Always  start by brushing the hair before washing to remove any tangles. Use a soft hair brush, starting at the ends and working your way up in sections. If you have curly hair, use a wide toothed comb instead of a brush.

This is how

  1. Rinse the hair with lukewarm water. 
  2. Apply shampoo to the upper part. Avoid rubbing the hair. Rinse thoroughly. If you use deep conditioning treatment, apply it to the lengths right after shampooing (avoid the attachments). Leave it on towel-dried  hair for at least 10 minutes, then finish with conditioner on the lengths. Avoid rubbing the hair. Rinse. 
  3. Rinse thoroughly in between applications and allow the hair to dry naturally. This is also a good opportunity to smooth out any tangles with your fingers. 
  4. You should avoid using conditioner, styling products or heat on your attachments. 

Styling your weft 

It may be necessary to trim and style the weft so that the transition between  your own hair and the extensions looks as natural as possible. If you are use styling tools, always put on heat protection. Do not expose your hair to temperatures higher than 180°C. 

Note: curly and wavy hair extensions should never be styled with a heated styling tool such as a straightener or similar.
