"Ladies... You can achieve hair growth... With a weave! This is allllll mine, no clips, no extensions, hadn't even been pressed," the recently-engaged galÂ postedÂ early this month. "And it got this healthy thick length from responsibly wearing weaves. #weaveandflowletitgrow."
"I wear weaves for my job to protect my own hair from heat and product buildup. I don't leave weaves in longer than six weeks, and I use quality hair. I haven't had a relaxer in over ten years! Natural hair is great and weaves can give you plenty of easy optionsâ€¦"
As the Being Mary Jane star has expressed, using high-quality weaves can help prevent further damage to natural hair. These hair products are placed over natural hair, shielding it from harmful substances. When used carefully, weaves and closures will take the damage natural hair would have otherwise sustained.
Before you go and order Brazilian hair bundle deals, you should realize that weaves and closures alone do not allow hair to recover. If you want to guarantee the complete recovery of your hair, try the following these suggestions along with wave or closure usage:
Your hair needs a variety of vitamins and minerals to recover from damage and to stay strong. Eating healthy can help improve the quality of your natural hair. In particular, try eating more salmon and walnuts. Not only will your hair look gorgeous, eating these food products can also improve the health of your heart due to their high omega-3 fatty acid content.
Easy on the Brushing
Brushing your hair excessively (think the 100 times "rule") will inevitably lead to damage. This is especially true for long natural hair. Remember that the latter parts of your hair were formed a few years back. Be gentle when handling your hair, and never brush it while it is still wet.
