Some bundles come with the hair closure attached, while some bundles do not. If bundles are bought that contain a closure, then all you need to do is attach the bundles to your head, but if bundles are bought without the hair closure, then you will have to sew this onto your wig. The number of bundles with closure that you’ll need will vary depending on the size of your head and the type of closure you are using.
This article will discuss everything you need to know about bundles, so let’s get started.
What Are Bundles Made Up Of?
A bundle is a grouping of hair extensions that are sold together. Most bundles include three pieces of hair, but some include four or more. The weight of each bundle will vary depending on the length and texture of the hair. Typically, a bundle will weigh between 100 and 120 grams. And the common length seen of a bundle of hair is between 10 inches to 32 inches long.
Different varieties of bundles
The bundles of hair extensions come in two varieties:
· Virgin bundles
Virgin bundles are made from 100% human hair that has never been treated or processed.
· Remy bundles
These bundles have the same hair type throughout the bundle, meaning there is minimal difference between the top and bottom of each strand.
Textures associated with bundles
The bundles are also sold in a variety of textures:
- Indian hair bundles– these bundles are made from bundles that originate from India and can range from wavy to straight and coarse to fine.
- Malaysian hair bundles– these bundles are made from bundles that originate from Malaysia and can range from curly to straight and coarse to fine.
- Brazilian hair bundles– these bundles are made from bundles that originate from Brazil and can range from curly to wavy and light to dark in color.
- Peruvian hair bundles– these bundles are made from bundles that originate from Peru and can range from wavy to straight and light to dark in color.
What type of closure does your bundle come in?
If bundles do not come with an attached closure, then you will need to buy bundles with a lace closure. While, if bundles are bought as loose hair, then there is no way for you to attach the bundles yourself, and you must have someone sew them into your wig. For bundles with pre-tipped lace closure, bundles are already sewn onto a lace base, and you can cut them to the length of your own preference.
How Many bundles of hair are needed for wigs with a closure?
A common number of bundles is about 3 bundles. For some people, 4 bundles work well. Depending on the length, one bundle will give you 5-7 ounces of hair. A good rule has been 3 bundles for every 8-to-10-inch length of unit closure. However, if you buy bundles as pre-tipped hair, you can easily attach the bundles yourself by using the provided tape or glue. The number of bundles you need with closure will vary depending on the size of your head and the type of closure you are using.
