Same length – 14 inch but is it better if we choose 14 inch weave rather than 14 inch bulk? Explore the difference here!
After having a basic understanding about 14 inch weave, I would like you to accompany us and find your own answer to the question “weave or bulk”? Basically, 14 inch is the same length when it comes to both bulk and weave. So in this part, we only focus on the difference between weave (weft) and bulk in general.
First, weave and bulk all belong to hair integrations. They are just two branches among a lot of types. While bulk refers to hair without weft and is used to create weft or to braid, its counterpart is of course weaved already and is easy to apply!
Bulk, which comes as strand by strand, is packed loosely. It is fixed by elastics. Bulk can be considered as the origin and father of weft and wig. You can bleach, dye, change its texture from straight to wavy/curly and vice versa. It is mainly for braiding and as an unprofessional user, bulk should not be your choice.
Meanwhile, weave vietnamese hair is already weaved, of course. That means you can have an instant application without any fear of damaging its style or so. The only thing you need to do is to attach them to your scalp. That’s it! Weft hair can be tied by machine or by human hands.
