Taking care of your natural hair even while wearing a weave

images (1)

There are those of us who have become entirely addicted to our hair extensions. Not only have we been wearing weaves for so long but without it we tend to feel extremely bare. There is no denying that a woman’s hair definitely enhances her natural beauty and we need not look further than the television screen to validate this fact. At London’s Luxury Hair we believe in the beauty of all things, we appreciate the feminine beauty of all women, of all color, body sizes and shapes, after all, sexy is more an attitude than anything else. We encourage our “Royals” to celebrate their existence, to enjoy every bit of themselves, to own their intrinsic beauty as at no time do we wish to underestimate the power of physical appearance.
We do however feel that it is equally important to take just as much pride in and to care for your natural hair even while choosing to wear your virgin extensions. We encourage all our Royals to invest in organic coconut oils and argan oils to properly treat and care for their natural hair, especially the delicate edges and hairline. I can easily recall days when after uninstalling my extensions, I was forced to wait for days until my new virgin hair arrived and my saving grace was knowing that I could easily smack some perm in my natural hair, put it in a ponytail and take confidence in the fact that I had a full head of healthy hair and wasn’t bald headed. So while we understand that as women, we will look fabulous, we want those Rapunzel tresses and we will be fierce with it, I also encourage my sisters to devote equal amount of care to their own natural tresses as well.
Extra care should be taken when installing any extension in any method, whether it’s clip in extensions, sew-ins, braids or fusions. It is vitally important not to cause undue stress to the hairline as long-term stress can lead to traction alopecia. It’s a great idea to install your extensions as far away from the hairline as possible where the hair is thicker and will not be affected by the extensions. If your install causes you to hurt or your hair is being pulled to the point of discomfort, do not hesitate to direct your stylist to loosen your braids. An install should never hurt and if it does, it’s more a disservice to you than anything else. Feel celebrated and beautiful whether you choose to go natural or rock an expensive weave – either way Royalty is still our birthright.

    I wholeheartedly agree. We are not the only ones that wear extensions. As a matter of fact, nowadays the white girls are wearing it just as much or even more, it’s just less detectable because we expect them to have naturally long hair. With that said, you can’t invest in a good weave and the hair underneath looks like ‘ratta titty’.
    Most stylist specialize in hooking up a great weave but don’t care about your natural hair, I bring my own products to the beauty salon. And it’s not everybody’s hand that agrees with your hair, some people hand ‘pick out hair’ so I’m careful with that too. If my stylist have dry head, she cyaan style my hair.

    WELL I’m a certified NYS Natural Hairstylist. I don’t do ANY type of chemicals. Just braids/extensions/weaves/locs wash/set/press/flat iron. You’d be surprised how many ppl want to cover up their broken hair natural/relaxed under a weave. I strongly promote ppl taking care of their hair but most of dem would rather have no edges or nyam out head unda weave. :cd
