Recommended Weave extensions
Yaki-textured hair is available and can be ironed flat and curled and curl back. This hair is just like African-American naturally relaxed hair. It does not tangle and it’s reusable. You may purchase this hair at www.Extensions-Plus.com.
Zigzag Hair from Extensions-Plus-This is EP’s regular Indian hair line. The texture of this hair is smooth and somewhat silky but not like doll hair or anything. Sometimes,the ends of some batches ate are too thin.
Indian Remy Hair-This hair mostly matches all hair textures. The cuticles are aligned and it does not tangle. However, with all hair, there may be a risk of getting a bad batch. It is soft and fluffy.
This list of brands are for your information and you do not have to purchase them if your budget does not permit in order to have your weave done. We know and understand that they are a little bit pricy but there are other affordable ones too. You may buy what we call regular hair extensions. However, if you choose to use the regular one, you might be taking some risks like tangling. Although, we have many clients that absolutely love using the regular hair with problem with it.
Perm or Relaxers and Color
Please know that the higher the quality of your hair extension, the better the weave may last. Here are a few basic brands that you can buy according to your budget because sometimes you can buy a brand that will be good and the next time you buy the same hair and brand, it sheds or tangles. So make your choice here:
Janet Collection: I have noticed that even the synthetic does not tangle. it is good for it’s price.
Model- Model and Outré: I don’t have much to say because this brand can surprise you sometimes.
Onyx : I like this brand for the price and the quality because its yaki texture matches the African American relaxed hair.
Goddess Remy , Outré Velvet Remy, Velvet Remy : These are a little expensive but can sometimes tangle even though they’re very good.
Sensational: This brand of extensions can be pretty good, but you might experience terrible tangling. So, we don’t recommend shampooing and conditioning this type of extension. They may really tangle and feel rough.
Milky Way: This extension used to be my favorite brand. But now, I am not really sure.
If you want wavy, curly, spiral hair, we recommend that you buy them in the brands mentioned earlier but know they can tangle and shed too sometimes. We can not control the quality of the extensions even when we recommend them and the hair dressers are not the manufacturers or the controlling processors. Because you want your weave to look like celebrity hair styles, at Passion Beauty, we recommend that you invest in high-quality hair if possible.
[stoggle=title”I want a weave but don’t know what type of weave extension I should get, fancy=”style”] We can schedule a consultation and we will go over the different types of weaves. At that time, we can decide what would work best for your needs and your budget. We can also discuss options over the phone and or by email
Please, note that it is not absolutely mandatory that you wear weaves to grow out your hair though. The daily routine is very important. We believe that every client’s hair needs are different; so the regiment may vary from one client to another. In addition, we make our own concoction depending on the needs and growth-plan and goals of each client.
We will always discuss with you to see if the service requested is good for your hair type and if your hair can handle what you’re requesting. Otherwise we will not be able to provide service but suggest something else that meet your present need.
We will not braid, or weave on hair that is excessively shedding. It is important to try to get to the cause. Sometimes excessive shedding can be a caused from an underlying health condition that may require a visit to the doctor.
Fusion: For fusion, the hair needs to be long enough for coverage reasons. At this moment, we do not do fusion because of the cost of materials involved.

This is more important than you can imagine!! You may have the right hair type, color, be great at daily maintenance but the hairstyle may not flattering to you. Therefore, when choosing a new look always find pictures of people who have your facial type. You can use the internet or beauty magazines. There is someone out there that has your facial shape and you may desire to look like that. This helps your communication with your stylist so as to make the right adjustments on your desired look.
Any type of weave may have pro and cons. There are several types of sew-in weaves, but the key is to have it done by a professional who should advise you of the right weave for you. Key concerns includes your lifestyle and your ability and willingness to stay on top of proper upkeep. A weave should last at most six to eight weeks. One thing to be cautious about is making sure that the weave is not too tight; you may end up with some hair loss due to the excess tension that may cause some traction
Like your skin, your hair needs nutrition from the inside out. . If your diet is deficient in hair-friendly foods, or your digestion is not efficient, all the expensive shampoos and hair treatment in the world won’t be effective at maintaining the color and the longevity of your hair. So if you want a healthy, shining growing hair, then start taking a hard look at what you eat, when you eat and how you eat.
Some Natural herbs include:
Amla powder and oil
Extra Virgin Olive oil
A healthy beautiful head of hair requires an ongoing hair and scalp hair care routine that starts with bringing the necessary nourishment.
Massaging the scalp and hair with warm oil, preferably infused with hair-friendly herbs, is also a way to nourish the scalp and hair topically. Not only does the massage work wonders for your hair, but it also relaxes the mind and nervous system.
