Hey, I know this should have gone in the Weaves forum but it wouldn't let me post for some reason.
I'm planning to get my first sew in weave put in next month and I've been reseraching like crazy! I've found a stylist that does home visits and sounds pretty good based on her customer reviews.
I've been arranging an appointment with her and when I asked if there was anything I had to do with my hair to get it ready, she told me I need to buy some cheap synthetic hair that she will use to cornrow my own hair.
Now I don't know if I just haven't read up enough or watched enough videos, but I didn't think adding synthetic hair for cornrows alone was necessary
I told her this but she hasn't really explained, just says that she will use it to cornrow my hair.
Can anyone help me with this? From what I've researched, it's optional and a lot of people have cmplained that this method makes their head itch, dries out their natural hair and can even damage it.
Surely, she can just cornrow my natural afro hair by itself? Thanks!
