Hair Care Tips For Women

Are weaves healthy for your hair?

Weave can be healthy for the hair as long as it is properly installed and you maintain a good hair care routine. It should be installed by an experienced professional hairstylist. It can help protect your natural hair from harmful heat and chemical elements; such as over-processing the hair.

Should you get glue or a sew-in weave?

Sew-in hairstyles are more gentle on the hair; meanwhile, glue-in weaves tend to pull and tug at the natural hair causing breakage if it is not properly removed.

The proper hair-care routine for a weave.

Visit your stylist every two weeks to properly maintain your weave installation and your natural hair. Most sew-in hairstyles last between 1 1/2 to 3 months. If you tend to wear weaves all the time, give it a rest after the second installation.

  • You may need to stop overlapping chemicals and get them done by a professional.

There are so many reasons for hair loss; such as,

  • Age: Hair growth slows as you get older.
  • Sickness: An example is people lose hair with cancer treatment; such as chemotherapy but the hair usually grows back.
  • Medication: Certain medications can cause hair loss.
  • Hormonal Imbalance: According to WebMd,
"Testosterone converts to DHT with the aid of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. Scientists now believe that it's not the amount of circulating testosterone that's the problem but the level of DHT binding to receptors in scalp follicles. DHT shrinks hair follicles making it impossible for healthy hair to survive."
    •  Over-processing the hair: Don't over-process the hair with a perm, relaxer, or hair color.
    • Stress: Hair can start to shed after a divorce or the death of someone close.
    • Hereditary: According to Harvard Health,
    "Hereditary-pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss. Hereditary-pattern baldness is not really a disease, but a natural condition caused by some combination of genetics, hormone levels and the aging process."

    The best thing to do is to consult a stylist and make a hair-care plan to restore your beautiful healthy hair. Enjoy your day growing long healthy hair.
