Maintaining extensions: Sealing the Weft

If you didn't know I am a LOVER of all things HAIR!! Natural Hair, extensions,virgin hair, wigs, lace fronts and installation techniques. Today I'm showing my new hair extensions from Bobbi Boss: Indi Remi Natural Yaki. I purchased 3 packs of this hair in 12, 14  and 16 inches long. Bobbi Boss is premium hair, right below virgin hair. Just like real hair, extensions will shed and loose strands during washing, styling and combing. The weft is the material that keeps the strands of hair sewn together. Sealing Wefts is important to keep the hair from excessive shedding. I'm using a weft sealer from Hairextensions101.com. It sells for about $10.00 per 1oz bottle and I used about 1 1/2 bottles. There are some cheaper alternatives such a Fray Block and Fray Check that can be purchased from a local craft store and Walmart. 
Bobbi Boss premium hair retails around $100 and Up, per pack. The Longer the hair the more it will cost. I purchased mine off ebay.com and got a great deal. Also check out Myremy.com for all Remy hair deals. 

  Tools needed are: Old Towel, Brush or Comb, Weft Sealer... patience and time. 

To seal your Wefts, lay the extensions over a old towel. Paint the weft sealer ONLY onto the weft. Be very careful not to get any on the hair, as this will cause tangles. Let each section dry and move to the next. Then Flip the extensions over and repeat. This was a slightly long and tedious process but its worth it to keep your extensions looking full and luscious. 

I love this weft Sealer because it did not leave a thick, white or caked film on the weft . They still are thin and smooth and ready for my installation.

Fall/Winter Akira Fashion Show

 Hey Loves
I attended the AKIRA Fall/Winter Fashion show this past Thursday night. Featuring ALL Shapes, Sizes and Ethnicity's. The event featured lots of great sponsors for eats, drinks and great discounts throughout all whole store.

 Theses Lady -boys were extremely entertaining, opening up the fashion show with a FAB musical number

 Yummy horderves treats. All Natural popcorn and delicious mexican egg rolls

I loved all of the Fashion. The Makeup, Hair and Accessories complimented all of the AKIRA styled Fashions. I loved the female and male models of all ethnicity's and shades. Of Course I was most excited for the plus size models that graced the runway. Now Akira does not have extended sizes. The stylists did well taking straight sizes and creatively fitting them for the Curvy models.

Eddie was in the building representing for the full figured at our 3rd Plus Size event together
Overall the night was really fun, I attend with my friend Jade who sported a leopard print mini dress with cut outs and popped the animal print with red stiletto pumps.  I worked a mini pleated, swing skirt with a thrifted leather vest and  a pearl and chain statement necklace.

I want to thank AKIRA Andersonville in Chicago so continuing to throw these free, fun, Fashion Show  events.
