Wearing a weave is the thing today. Hair weaves let you create that look without having to put your natural hair through changes. Back in the day women didn’t want anyone to know that the hair they were wearing weren’t their own. It just wasn’t spoken of.
Well, not anymore. Today there are many women experimenting with hair extensions in different lengths, textures, and colors. Wearing hair weaves is a great way to add variety to your style and fashion.
There are also many benefits to wearing hair weaves today.
IT’S LOW MAINTENANCE
Wearing hair extensions will allow you to style your hair in a hurry if you don’t have a lot of time to spend. This is great for when you are pushing for time in the mornings getting ready for work or like me your husband is yelling for you to hurry up lol!
Synthetic hair weaves come somewhat already styled so all you have to do is shake and go. On the other hand, human hair weaves offer more versatility.
Hair extensions can also be great for those vacation getaways. You can actually relax and enjoy every minute of your getaway knowing you don’t have to waste a lot of time styling your hair. Instead, you can enjoy the scenery.
Protective styles mean that your natural hair is protected from the elements as well as your everyday styling techniques. Your hair does not have to suffer from your daily styling practices.
There are other protective styles like sew-in hair extensions. This is when your natural hair is braided close to your scalp and the extension wefts are sewn-in. The extensions take the daily wear and tear of curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers from your natural hair. Your hair will be protected from all of the daily styling, hair products and outside elements that can split your ends and dry your hair out.
Protective styles don’t make your hair grow. They do make it possible to prevent breakage. Protective styles keep your ends protected. Try a protective style and see if you have less breakage and retain more growth. Whichever protective style you choose just make sure your ends are tucked away. Even if your hair may be braided completely to your scalp and is protected from the weather, It is still very important to care for the hair under the weave.
SHAMPOO AND CONDITION
When wearing hair weaves you still need to shampoo & condition your hair on a regular basis. Start by applying the shampoo on your scalp then massage it in using your fingertips. Then you want to work the shampoo downward towards the ends. Never ball the hair up on top of your head. Make sure you keep the hair as straight as possible to keep it from tangling or matting.
Your hair and scalp also need nourishment while wearing a weave. Apply moisturizing oils to your scalp and massage them in. Try using an applicator bottle with a nozzle tip to help direct the oil where it needs to go. Use lightweight formulas. You don’t want the oils weighing your hair down.
HOW LONG TO WEAR WEAVES
Hair weaves are a low commitment option. Hair weaves are designed to be worn for a short period of time. You can wear it anywhere from one day to up to a couple of months. The thing about hair weaves is that you can ask your hairdresser to change it or remove it if you’re not satisfied with the style.
Wearing hair extensions is also an option for women who like frequent color changes. Now you can experiment with color without having to dye your own hair. You can be blonde one week and a redhead the next week.
