My View on Braids and Weave in General

i am a big believer in wigs and weave and braids and micros and whatever, lol. my high school days are filled with me and my braids. from micros to scalp braids, i was wearing them. soon i fell out of the scene of findind afforable people and i was unable to get braids for almost two years. braids have grew my hair trememdously. i love braids. i wish i can wear them all the time but my parents hates them. i have officially decided to give up micros. i think that right now my hair is too weak to take on micros and that i would lose more hair now than gain length. by the time i think my hair strong enough to have micros, i think my hair, personally, would be too long for micros. so i am giving them up. i am going to continue to get large box braids and scalp braids and whatever else i can do with risking losing too much hair. i have also decided that i will not get any more kinky twists in my hair after i get APL. after BSL i think i will stop getting box braids. after MBL, i will no longer get scalp braids with weave. i am hoping to graduate from these helpful resources. why would i wan't to move away from my braids? well, it would mean that i am gaining length and don't need it anymore. i am thinking about wigs. i haven't gotten one. i am thinking about buying in december and wearing it from january until march or maybe even may. i haven't decided yet.

  1. I bought my first half wig after watching some of Ateyaaa's videos on Youtube. I NEVER thought I would invest in a wig -- EVER!! But she made it look so easy and a way to be glamorous any time, I tried one. I've been hooked ever since! It's a way to try out new colors or styles without putting your own hair through the strain of changes...

    Why do your parents dislike braids/weaves/wigs so much? May I ask, what is your mom's hair like? Does she wear it relaxed also?

    I, too, have issues with weakness/breakage in my hair. I have also had to realize that I can't color my hair. I wasn't having the problems I have been having until 'after' I started coloring.
