Hair weaves have been around since the early 1900s. As early as 1920, the concept of hair weaves had been invented to add volume, body, and length to one’s natural hair.
Our hair is often the most noticeable part of the body. For some, its presence (or lack thereof), enhances their personality; it establishes our proverbial “brand.” It’s an important part of your appearance and sets the tone for your entire look.
Why do we even care about it and why do we explore using extensions, weaves, and wigs in the first place?
There are a lot of reasons, and most of the time it’s subjective and personal. However, in our years of studying hair, we’ve gathered together the common reasons why we care about our hair. First, it enhances your beauty. Some people, men and women alike, treat their hair as their crown. It’s the final piece that often completely makes or breaks your overall sense of style. Imagine dressing up for a professional interview only to fall short because you didn’t pay much attention to your hair.
Second, it boosts your confidence. Since how you keep your hair speaks more about your personality, showing your style through your hair is an outlet for you to be more comfortable with your choices and thus helps improve your self-confidence. It goes without saying that how you treat your hair is also reflective of how you take care of yourself.
In modern settings, people often go for clip-ins, wigs, and weaves because it helps mitigate the unhealthy hair care practices, turmoil, and constant weekly usage of heat that hair is often exposed to, especially those in the modelling industry. Using weaves can often result in more flourishing hair.When one wears clip-ins, weaves, and wigs, your natural hair is often subject to a lesser degree of direct manipulation. Manipulation of your tresses is drastically reduced which helps ensure more length retention.
Add Length and Volume After a BIG Chop
Once in a while, you go through the process called “the big chop.” It’s the practice of shortening your hair with the goal of going 100% natural. There are a lot of things that may compel a woman to decide to get the big chop. Eliminating the need for straightening and chemicals are common reasons. Regardless, these reasons do not make the whole process easier to take in. Imagine saying goodbye to your beloved hair; that’s a hard pill to swallow. However, with the help of our clip in extensions, natural hair bundles or wigs, the transitioning stage can be a bit easier.
Probably the best use of wigs weaves, and clip-ins as protective items is when it adds a layer of protection to your natural hair and shields it from the harsh elements such as weather, too much sun exposure, and mechanical friction (through your clothing, for example). If you go with 100% human hair items, you may also be free to use heating appliances without the fear of causing damage to your natural strands.
For those who are often not satisfied with having a single do in a week, donning wigs, weaves, and clip-ins make it easier to express yourself. Weaves, for example, can provide constant manipulation without ever causing damage to your natural tresses.
