I could see how weaves could hinder growth on some... They did for me for awhile but I never took care of the hair underneath and I never detangled after a take down of an install.
I want to try wigs but I'm scared. :(
yeah, there's a lot of trial and error when it comes to wigs. Just the same as with anything else. the same goes for weaves as it does for wig. You have to take care of your own hair underneath.
All i could think of was some envious chick coming up behind me and yanking it off my head. Bobby pins flying and all. But that never happened.
I have no idea how i proudly patiently lived with the problems with weaves.
1) weave checking - i don't get this with wigs. I wear a wigs that look natural and a practical length - no one even bothers to ask or touch.
2) The fatal beautician/beauty shop. Waiting for hours, kids running around you and clientele walking up and digging in your head during the install.
3) You're walking out of the beauty shop thinking you look "fly" - and the clientele are laughing their as&*&s off.
4) The wind is not your friend when it comes to wearing weaves. The tracks in the front say "HELLO WORLD" when there's a good breeze. (I was once called "Flo Jo"
by the gays in San Francisco. Not because i looked like her - i was later told it was their "back-handed" way of calling me THE TRACK QUEEN
5) That beautician again - you're on time and she's not..
6) and for me? The traction alopecia that i developed after 15+ years of wearing weaves.
Hey Darlinnic, there are some ladies that have been a huge encouragement, and inspiration when it comes to wigs. How i learned to wear them was doing research and checking out the what the experts have to say - and photos, in the wig section.
