Pros and cons of quick weave

What is a quick weave?

Quick weave is a type of hairstyle that involves using a woven cap or "weave" to attach synthetic or natural hair extensions to a person's natural hair. The weave is attached to the natural hair with a bonding agent or glue, and the extensions are sewn or woven into the weave. Quick weaves are called "quick" because they can be done relatively quickly compared to other methods of adding hair extensions. They are often used to add length, volume, or fullness to a person's natural hair and can be styled in a variety of ways. Here in this post, we will share with you the pros and cons of a quick weave. If you have an interest in this, keep scrolling.

Advantages and disadvantages of quick weave

Quick weaves are a type of hairstyle that involves attaching weft hair extensions to a person's natural hair using glue, braiding, or a special hair cap. Here are some pros and cons of quick weaves:


  • Quick and easy to install: Quick weaves can be done in a matter of hours and do not require as much time as other methods of hair extension installation, such as sew-ins.
  • Versatility: Quick weaves allow you to try out different hairstyles and lengths without committing to cutting your own hair.
  • Affordable: Quick weaves are generally less expensive than other hair extension methods.


  • Damage to natural hair: The use of glue and other adhesives can cause damage to your natural hair and scalp if not applied properly.
  • Short lifespan: Quick weaves typically do not last as long as other hair extension methods and may need to be redone every few weeks.
  • Lack of natural movement: Quick weaves can look unnatural and may not blend well with your natural hair, resulting in a lack of movement and a stiff, artificial appearance.

Overall, quick weaves can be a quick and affordable option for those looking to change their hairstyle, but they may not be the most suitable choice for those who want a more natural-looking and long-lasting hairstyle. It is wise to consider the pros and cons and consult with a stylist before deciding on any hair extension method.

How long does it take to install a quick weave?

The length of time it takes to install a quick weave can vary depending on a few factors. Some of the things that can affect the length of time it may require to do a quick weave include the length and thickness of your natural hair, the length and style of the quick weave, and the skill level of the stylist. On average, it can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to install a quick weave, but it can last longer or shorter depending on the specific circumstances.

How long should you keep a quick weave in?

As for how long you should leave a quick weave in, it really depends on the health of your natural hair and the condition of the quick weave itself. In general, it is recommended to wear a quick weave for no more than 2-4 weeks at a time in order to allow your natural hair to rest and recover. If you keep the quick weave in for longer periods of time, it can lead to damage to your natural hair and scalp. It is imperative to keep the scalp and natural hair clean and moisturized while wearing a quick weave. In addition, it is imperative to remove the quick weave and properly care for your natural hair as soon as it becomes necessary.

Tips for quick weave maintenance:

Keep in mind that quick weaves can put a lot of tension on your natural hair and can cause damage if not done correctly. It's imperative to take proper care of your natural hair and to use high-quality human hair weaves to minimize the risk of damage. 

Here are a few tips for maintaining a quick weave:

  1. Keep your hair moisturized. Use a leave-in conditioner and oil to keep your hair hydrated. Don't apply oil or hair conditioner to the roots, or your hair weave may slide off.
  2. Avoid heat styling as much as possible. If you do need to use heat, make sure to use a heat protector spray. Heat should never be applied to the bonding area, or it can cause the hair weave to slide off.
  3. Avoid getting your quick weave wet as much as possible. If you do get your quick weave wet, be sure to gently blot the hair with a towel. And avoid rubbing it rudely, as this can cause tangles and slide off.
  4. Avoid sleeping on your quick weave without protection. If you need to sleep on your quick weave, be sure to wrap it in a silk or satin scarf to protect it.
  5. Avoid tight ponytails and braids. These styles can put too much tension on your hair, causing breakage.
  6. Gently brush your quick weave with a wide-tooth comb or a brush specifically made for weaves. Be sure to start at the mids and work your way up to avoid tangles.
