The days are starting to really heat up and the extra sweat is beginning to drip from your forehead. Are you wondering what extensions are best when installing a sew-in during the summer months? For those of you who are new to sew-ins, a sew-in is when your natural hair is braided, and your extensions or hair bundles are installed over the braids. The wefts or track of the hair bundles is aligned and sewn against the braids. If you’re wearing a sew-in during the summer when you sweat the moisture starts at the root of your hair, where your braids are located. Meaning during the summer months you will need to wash and shampoo the sew-in more often, (twice per week).
On this blog post, I will be informing you on what hair extensions I believe are best for the upcoming hottest months. Normally during the summer, I rock a texture of hair that can handle extra moisture when it’s hot. By choosing the right texture of hair during the summer, you can enjoy all the outdoor activities without your weave looking a dreaded mess.
Please be advised that I will only be providing information that relates to Hair-N-Paris Premium hair bundles which is the hair I currently wear, and I know that the quality of hair is great. The information provided in this blog has been tested during my personal experiences.
I am a person that rocks my weave year around, other than the resting period between sew-ins. I have spent plenty of summers with different hair textures during the summer. Honestly, straight hair is the worst hair for the summer simply because I live in Houston, Texas where the weather is extremely hot and humid. There is nothing worse than to flat iron your hair perfectly and the moment you walk outside you begin to sweat. The weather I'm used to in Houston knows to attack your hair first. My experience with straight hair during the summer has not been great. Humidity is the worst on straight hair during the summer. My advice if you are going to wear extensions during the summer choose a curl or wavy texture of hair. My favorite is Premium Body Wave because I can go from the pool to lunch and my hair would still look good. Premium Body Wave hair will give you the ability to be versatile. It’s easy to straighten, curl and even easier to obtain your wavy look by just adding a little moisture. Although I prefer Premium Body Wave hair, the best hair texture for the summer is Premium Deep Wave. Sweating or humid hot weather would not interfere with the styling of Hair-N-Paris’ Premium Deep Wave bundles or closures. Premium Deep Wave hair is by far the best extensions for summer outdoor and water activities. I did notice that my Deep Wave hair was much more manageable after water activities if I put my weave in a single braid before swimming, this is optional. As a reminder, if you are reading this blog and did not purchase your bundles from Hair-N-Paris make sure that you are buying unprocessed hair to ensure you hair weave does not become a tangled mess after sweating or swimming. Just FYI all of the Hair-N-Paris Premium bundles are unprocessed, tangle, and shed free.
So, if you're still reading you are well informed about summer weaves and ready to make a big splash and look great while doing so. Have fun and enjoy your summer. If you have any questions, please comment below and thanks for reading.
