When investing in quality hair extensions we all know hair care is key. But did you know sealing your wefts will help the longevity of your hair? It will also help keep your bundles fuller longer. This quick and inexpensive trick is too good not to try.
Keep Your Wefts Strong
Wefts are the basis of beautiful hair extensions. When wearing high-quality hair extensions, the shedding is very minimal but over time the wefts become loosened. Sealing your wefts is guaranteed to be the best way to prevent your hair from shedding. While it is nearly impossible to totally prevent shedding, sealing your wefts properly will dramatically reduce the amount of shedding that you might expect from your hair extensions. This will keep your bundles full a beautiful longer. Before getting started, you will need to start with quality wefts that have a minimal amount of shedding out of the box.

Know your Wefts
Are your bundles single weft or double weft,? This may make a major difference when it comes to shedding. We recommend using double weft hair because it is thicker and we’ve noticed that it may shed less due to the double sewing. The most important factor is the quality of the sewing when it comes to shedding.
Co-Wash Your Hair Before Sealing
Co-washing is a great way to refresh your hair. This means to wash and rinse your hair with a high-quality conditioner. This process cleans your hair and conditions it without damaging the hair. Co-washing is a quick and simple solution that will help keep your hair healthy from root to ends. Co-washing with quality products helps to retain the moisture in your hair and eliminate dullness. After washing your hair wait for the hair to dry prior to sealing the wefts. If you plan to color or dye your hair do this step before sealing your wefts.
Sealing The Wefts
After Co-washing and drying your hair, it is now time to seal the wefts. Choose a weft sealant that bonds quickly, is flexible and does not leave any clumpy residue. Make sure to apply the sealant to both sides of the weft. This guarantees a tightly sealed weft that will minimize shedding dramatically.
Choosing The Sealant
There are some weft sealants that are made specifically for hair wefts and provide a good bond without leaving residue or a white crust along the weft. A very reasonable alternative to hair weft sealants is fabric glues. Fabric glues tend to apply nicely and also dry clear. We recommend using Dritz Fray Check. You can find this product at your local Walmart, Hoppy Lobby, Asda or any arts and crafts store.
Follow These Steps
Place an old towel on a large flat surface lay your PoshLife extensions on top. Try to use something sturdy to anchor the ends of the hair down to the surface so that you can clearly see the wefts and prevent bunching up as you apply the sealant. Use the nozzle or an applicator brush to apply the glue/sealant directly over the stitches of the weft. For a tighter seal, especially with double weft bundles apply a liberal amount.
Try not to get any glue on the hair itself as this will cause clumping and can ruin the hair. The sealant should be heavy enough to soak through the weft and seep in. If not, you will need to allow the glue to dry, then, flip the hair over to seal the other side. You can also dab with your finger to allow the sealant to seep in more. Allow the sealant to dry and move on to the next bundle.
The process of sealing wefts is very simple and effective for maintaining your virgin hair for the maximum possible time.
