Would You Try It? A Critical Look At The EZ Out Weave

Would You Try It A Critical Look At The EZ Out Weave

Have you seen this new product around social media lately? I recently got wind of it and while I do not wear weaves now, you never know I might get inspired one day so I was curious.

I thought this was kind of interesting, put simply the company has made it possible for you to remove your sew in weave without using scissors, blades of seam rippers.

They developed a special type of thread that is supposedly fortified with essential oils that fortify the hair and promote health hair growth. Before I get into why that is all hype, the real beauty is in the liquid that literally melts the threads away so you can remove the weave.

My first question was, what in the world is in that thing that can disintegrate thread but not my hair? According to the website the solution has been tested and is PH balanced. That is all well and good but I want to know the deets on the ingredients so I checked the website and did not have to look far, the ingredients are:

N Butyl Acetate, Propylene Carbonate, Coconut Oil, Banana Oil, Grapefruit Oil and Lemon Oil.

None of these ingredients at face value seem to have melting properties but I also was not sure what “N-Butyl Acetate” was so I did a little Google search and this is what I found:


n-Butyl acetate, also known as butyl ethanoate, is an organic compound commonly used as a solvent in the production of lacquers and other products. It is a colorless flammable liquid. Butyl acetate is found in many types of fruit, where along with other chemicals it imparts characteristic flavors and has a sweet smell of banana or apple.

That means it is naturally occurring and while it is used as a solvent it is typically found in apples, so that cant be harmful right? Wrong, depends on how its used so personally I am still not sure.

The other ingredient I had trouble with is Propylene Carbonate, and since I am no chemist, I still am having trouble pinpointing exactly what it is since it seems to be a combination of chemical compounds specifically, carbon dioxide and propylene created to form Propylene Carbonate. With a bit more digging I found this little gem:

This post focuses on the use of PC [Propylene Carbonate] in cleaning and degreasing formulations. However, there are several other recognized uses of this material in other applications. For example, PC is prevalent in chemical intermediates, paints/coatings, dyes, fibers, as a reactive diluent in urethane systems, wood binder resins, safer alternative in cosmetic/personal care formulations, and as electrolyte solvents for lithium batteries (among many more).

While that little piece of information is not concrete I still cant say for sure that the combination in the solution can disintegrate only thread. it was enough for me to at least want to think twice about the EZ Out weave.

Oh and that little hype thing about the thread promoting hair growth, if you been following us for a while, ya’ll should know that it is highly unlikely that a little oil in some thread will promote hair growth, if only it were that simple.

    I dont wear weaves, but it sounds like to much chemicals. What I would be worried about is how it will affect the user in the long run. Not for me….

    how does the oil not help hair growth? I mean, common sense tells you not top take it so literally already, but to just dismiss the possibility that it could help your roots even if just a little while the weave is in? Doesn’t healthy hair = longer hair after all (sarcasm)
    regarding the product, I’d try it. It’s only hair after all and I mean one of the ingredients you are wary about is found in something most people eat every day so it’s already in our bodies isn’t it? Not saying that’s good but there’s a difference between being omg careful to where you don’t try things and cautious. Better imo then cutting ^^;

    I think the thread is some sort of plastic polymer or rubber that degenerates when put in contact with some form of acetone…. Try putting a thin black rubber band in acetone it sort of breaks down. Change the composition / thickness the rubber band or thread in this case and decrease the strength of the acetate nd there u have EZ OUT. Might be wrong but that’s my logic

    Why didn’t you contact the developer before making these accusations? They’re trying to respond to your questions but, apparently there’s no way of contacting you. They’ve replied to your blog on their Instagram @ezoutweave

    I don’t know, seems like a novel concept. the hair loss is why I stopped wearing weave. But the video showed the removal on a freshly installed sew- in track and it was easy to just put the solution directly on the thread. We all know after a couple of weeks the tracks don’t look like that anymore, the hair is tangled in. I think I will stick to a wig for a quick fix when needed or crochet style weave.

    Hi Everyone, I am the creator of the product we are all discussing, I would like to first point out that my wife is the inspiration for this product. I would also like to thank everyone for their interest and thoughtful and cautious comments, Our model is “Healthy Hair Matters” Please visit our website http://www.ezoutweave.com for more info.

    First I would like to point out that Nylon and cotton threads are dry threads that cause friction and hair loss due to cutting, tightening and friction. These threads were designed for clothing, not hair..
    EZ Out Weave was designed for Weave and Extensions only. Our thread is an elastic thread that contains Argon and Coconut oil to promote hair growth. Elasticity grips the braid reducing friction and pain resulting in a tighter,flatter, painless weave that reduces hair loss.

    Our Solution is designed with the safest ingredients,it will not disolve,melt or disintegrate,it is designed to break the thread only.We used commonly consumed ingredients that have no record of negative effects on anyone,ever , The most active ingredients are commonly used in lipstick, cake mixes and mascaras. Our model is “Healthy Hair Matters”,but you matter most.
    We welcome your comments and suggestions
