The quick weave technique developed shortly after the introduction of weaves by Christina Jenkins in the 1950’s.  


Quick weaves were designed to be a faster method to installing weaves. To install a quick weave, one takes a weft, or track, of hair extension and applies it to the natural hair or a cap using bonding glue. As with sew-in weaves, quick weaves can be of human hair, synthetic hair, or a mixture of both. Quick weaves can also vary in texture.


Quick weaves may not last as long as sew-in weaves because the bonding glue may begin to wear out naturally. If done properly, a quick weave can last up to 4 weeks before it becomes necessary to remove.


Even though quick weaves are fast and easy to install, the style is not healthy for natural hair. The bonding glue can cause major damage to the natural hair, even with the use of a cap. Many women suffer from hair breakage and even hair loss due to improper installation techniques. It is always best to have a professional install and remove a quick weave.
