To have someone do your own hair is easier, but it’s not cheap. You have to buy the weave, which can be 70+ dollars, and then have someone put it in and those prices vary. Weaves can also lead to your hair not being able to “breath” or get moisture. That can result in breakage depending on how often you get it and how long you leave it in, and it can also take your hair and your hairline out. That’s why I never really wore weaves.
But that’s one reason. Now for my own personal reason, and I’m sure there will be some who agree and some who have different reasons, but natural is better. Why weave it when you can grow your natural hair to any desired length? Of course it takes time and effort, but what doesn’t? Natural products are more expensive than products with harmful ingredients, but aren’t organic foods more expensive than regular foods? When trying to live a healthy lifestyle, doesn’t that require a lot of work? Finding the right foods to eat, working out 3-5 days a week.
Not only that, but there’s nothing like having your hair out and being able to say it’s yours, it’s healthy, and it can be long without wearing a weave.
And to be honest, for me, it was only hard in the beginning with trying to figure out what worked best for me. Now it’s as easy as applying a leave-in and leaving. I trim when I find split-ends, and deep condition every week. But anyone who has hair should do that to keep it healthy, whether it’s natural, relaxed, or straightened.
