Using no more than just curly hair bundles for an amazing look
Hair bundle (or also called as weft hair bundles or weave hair bundles) is a single wefted hair piece which weighs 100 grams in general. A bundle’s standard length is commonly 10″ – 32″; however, you could see weave hair bundles whose length is out of this range, depending on the users’ variable demand.
To make weave hair bundles as chains of hair, all strands in a bundle are perfectly fixed by a weft at which you will sew in or stick into your head.
Using just curly hair bundles for your hair extensions means that you will make alternate layers of your natural hair and weave hair bundles. Therefore, your original hair will be seen together with the curly hair extensions, requiring the original one should be of the similar texture (also curly) or is properly short but has curly tail.
If your original hair is straight, there is another option which is to buy straight hair bundles and make curls later together with your natural strands.
