I have been asked, a few times, why is it that I share information on maintaining healthy hair if I sell human hair extensions.
Let me explain:
I am natural and have been for 4 years. I’ve done the big chop twice! However I do wear weave as a protective style probably half the year. One month, of those 6 may or may not include braids.
I’ve done plenty of research and find it a daunting task to get all of the information I need to keep my mane healthy. It involves more than hair products. You have to feed and love your mane as well.
I don’t believe in the cookie cutter hair regimens. Have you ever watched a video on a hair regimen, gone out and purchased those products, performed the steps exactly as shown to wake up to a huge disappointment in the morning? So have I! Everything isn’t for everyone.
As a result of all of my research, I read and follow a lot of naturalista vlogs/blogs on YouTube and Facebook. I find that as a rule, weave is looked upon as something worn by women with self-hatred or self-esteem issues. I’ve heard similar comments from men.
I couldn’t disagree more! I get the same amount/kinds of compliments whether I’m donning my natural do or a weave. My reasons for wearing weave are:
- I like to give my hair a rest from time to time
- My hair tends to break tremendously in the winter
- I travel a lot and find it much easier to maintain than my long thick 4c kinky curly mane
There are many other reasons women wear hair extensions;
- For convenience
- As a protective style
- Simply because they like it
Women should be able to decide how they want to wear their hair. Whether they choose extensions, braids, natural, or relaxed; it should be about what makes you feel great at the end of the day.
