Machine weft hair is one of the most popular hair extensions worldwide, especially in African – American community. If you want to get an overview about this type of hair extensions, scroll down now.

What are weft hair extensions?

Origin and definition

Machine weft hair, also known as weft hair extensions or weave hair extensions, was invented by an African – American couple, Christina Jenkins and Duke Jenkins in the 1950s. They patented this new hair technique as “hair weave” in 1951 and established Christina’s Hair Weaves. When this new beauty trend became popular, many people from different countries invited Christina to their hometown to teach her technique.

After many years of redesigning, now we have weave hair extensions that are made by sewing hair into a thin strip of cloth by a sewing machine and reinforce it with glue.


We can classify hair weave in many ways depending on the criteria such as materials, weft line, origin, and standard as below.

Base on the materials

Women can use synthetic weave hair or human weave hair to achieve their dream locks. However, human hair includes different types as well.

– Virgin hair: Virgin hair is collected from 1 donor only. It is the purest human hair that hasn’t gone through any chemical process yet. It costs a lot because wearers can dye it to light colors evenly. Moreover, this hair type can last for 3 years and above with the original beauty.

– Remy hair: Remy hair is usually from 2 to 3 donors. It is tangle-free, cuticle aligned, and healthy. Although remy hair is not as high-qualified as virgin hair, it can go to light brown (or even blond) and last for 2 years and above. A great point of this hair type is the suitable price.

– Non-remy hair: Non-remy hair relates to human hair without cuticles. The manufacturers remove the cuticles and cover hair with silicone. Therefore, this hair has a short lifespan.

Base on the weft line

The weave hair can come with single weft line or double weft line, depending on the technology. Single track means making machine weft hair with 1 line of weft, while double track means making it with 2 lines of the weft. As the result, the former is thinner than the latter.

Base on the origin

Hair from different countries will have different features. Some of the most popular hair extensions are Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair, Slavic hair, Indian hair, and Vietnamese hair. Among them, Indian, Peruvian, and Brazilian hair are famous for naturally curly and wavy textures, Slavic hair is well-known for the variety in natural colors, and Vietnamese hair is considered as silky and long-lasting characteristics.

Base on standards

Hair standard is a term of Vietnamese suppliers to imply how thick the hair extensions are. They usually mix the short hair and long hair in a different ratio to create 4 standards including single drawn, double drawn,

Why choose weft hair?

Weave hair extensions are popular for many reasons.

Diverse application methods

In the beginning, hairdressers applied weave hair by sewing the hair extensions into a net, then sew the net to women’s cornrows. However, people invented several ways to attach weft hair extensions to natural hair such as quick weave, sew-in hair without braid, micro bead, and so on.

No matter what application method you choose, you need to take weft hair off after 6 to 8 weeks because your natural hair grows out and your scalp needs relaxing. Don’t throw the old hair away. If the hair is of good quality, you can reuse it by the same application method or another. As soon as the hair gets damaged, you can revive it and continue to wear it.

Reasonable price

The machine weft hair extensions themselves are economical, the application fee is also affordable with the range of $50 to $150. The reapplication fee is from $15 to $30. You can save these amounts if you apply the hair by yourself.

Whilst, tape-in hair extensions, and keratin hair extensions usually charge $200 – $600 for installation only. To reapply the hair, you need to pay $65 – $70.

Various options in length, texture, and color

In the market, the hair suppliers offer human weft hair extensions from 6 inches to 40 inches, even longer with a large range of patterns from straight to wavy to curly. You can also choose the hair color and shade freely to match with your natural hair hue or to change your style.

Where to buy weft hair extensions

If you are a newcomer, you need to do research and test a lot to find out a reliable hair supplier. We will give you some tips to find the most suitable vendor quickly without wasting money on sampling hair.

Tip 1: Check on their website, social media 

A website is the face of a brand. It will show how professional and reliable a brand is. If they invest in their websites, they care about their business and want to develop it for the long term. However, you need to check their social media to see more photos, videos, and livestream to check the hair virtually. 

Tip 2: Seek customers’ reviews

One of our favorite way to track a brand is to find reviews on Facebook groups. There are many public and private hair groups that you can ask for customers’ experience with any hair suppliers.

Tip 3: Check on Alibaba

If you have no idea about any brands, Alibaba – a trustworthy e-commerce website will support you. You can search machine weft hair extensions and a million results turn up. Why do we recommend this website? Because all suppliers need to submit their verified documents and pay a lot to join this online market which scammers cannot afford. However, most of the hair suppliers here are manufacturers who accept wholesale orders only.
