Weaves Or Natural Hair Which One Do You Prefer?


For years, weaves have been giving beautiful thick hair to women all over the world. When done correctly, sew-in weave has a shiny, ultra-feminine look. If we want to attain the look we want, we need to have a weave right from the start. It's time to start considering hair weaves. Let's discuss weave extensions, textures, hair alternatives, styles, and pricing, as well as everything else that goes into choosing and maintaining a weave.

A weave is a human hair extension made of synthetic or real hair that is sewed, glued, or clipped in. Weaves initially developed in Egypt around 3400 BC, when people colored human hair or sheep wool and adhered it to their heads with resin or beeswax. In ancient times, Cleopatra was known for her peacock blue weave.

Weaves are one of the most popular hair extensions among black women nowadays. Unlike clip-in hair extensions, which may be removed every day, weaves are designed to endure for several weeks. A weave is different from a wig. Instead of hiding hair like a wig, a weave sews right into natural hair, enhancing and embellishing it.

Natural hair

Afro-textured hair, often known as kinky hair, is found in some African and African diaspora groups. Each strand of this hair grows in a tiny, angle-like helix shape. Afro-textured hair seems denser than straight, wavy, or curly hair in general.

Due to media influences and political circumstances, natural hair styles and trends have evolved over time.

In the United States, maintaining and styling natural Black hair has become a multibillion-dollar industry. A variety of salons and beauty supply companies cater to clients with natural afro-textured hair.

If the hair is allowed to knit together in the style pattern, plaits or braids, the two-strand twist, and basic twists can all result in manicured dreadlocks. Twists like finger-coils and comb-coils are popular. Dreadlocks, also known as "dreads," "locks," or "locs," are made by letting the hairs in an Afro naturally weave together. Another option is to employ the proprietary "Sisterlocks" method, which produces extremely tidy micro-dreadlocks. There are also faux locs, which are a type of synthetic dreadlock manufactured with extensions.
