Today, we're going to learn how to glue in a quick weave. First, you want to take your glue, and apply it to your pre-cut track. You want to glue the track right where the thread is. You're going to apply it all the way to the very end. So, you apply your glue to the length of the track that you've cut. So now you have your glue and your track. Now, you have to wait about a minute or so for the glue to get a little tacky, because you don't want it to spread when you press it against your head. Usually, the glue gets a little darker when it's ready. So now, we're going to take the track and apply it here, bring it right across the head, and hold it. And then, you want to take your blow dryer. So, you want to use your blow dryer to heat the glue, and it gives it a stronger bond. Now, you'll do this all the way up to the top of your head. And now you know how to glue in a quick weave.
