Wearing a weave can be a great way to change up your style and to protect your natural hair if you wear it correctly. Find out how to look after your hair with and without a weave.
How can a weave protect your hair?
Wearing a weave shields your natural hair and protects it against damage from styling tools and the environmental factors.
It also means you don’t have to wash or style your hair nearly as often.
Is there a down side to a weave?
If your hair and scalp aren’t in great condition then a weave could in fact do more harm than good.
For example, it could weigh down and pull on your hair – and if it’s not strong and healthy at the roots that can cause breakage and in extreme cases, even permanent hair loss.
Sometimes weaves are hard on your scalp. Not only do they pull and tug, they can also make it more difficult to care for your scalp, making it dry and itchy.
Look after your hair and scalp
A weave isn’t the only way to protect your hair. Healthy hair grows from a healthy scalp, so taking care of your scalp properly is another great way to protect your hair and prevent damage. .
When your hair is healthy and strong, the only reason you’ll wear a weave is because you want to – not because you need to protect your hair!
