Is hair more likely to get matted under a weave when you're natural?
So, the longest I've ever gone w/ a weave was 3 months while I was transitioning, and after I took it out I was perfectly fine. So people say they would never leave it on that long because it would matte, but I've seen people do it and they were fine but they were also relaxed.
Now that I'm natural, I feel like leaving it on that long would be bad. I've never been fully natural before in my life, although I've gone many times w/o getting a relaxer for months but I've always had relaxed ends to hold the curls down.
When I was relaxed I probably could've gone for 4 months no problem.
I want to get my hair installed before I go back to school on the 20th. Nobody at my school knows how to do sew ins and there are no salons in the area that do (Its the suburbs). I want to wear my hair until I get out of school May 13 so that's pretty much 4 months.
I could try to get it done over Spring Break, but I really don't want to spend my Spring Break stressing about my hair. And Spring break would only be 1 and a few days and then I'll have to keep in the 2nd install for 3 months, Idk, that just seems stupid.
Unfortunately that's the only vacation in the Spring Semester.
