To Weave or Not To Weave

Tuesday, June 2, 2009
I’m gonna admit that within my circle of friends I am the poster child for weave. I’ve gone as far as researching the type of hair I want, how I want it styled etc. Every time I get a weave to make sure I do the proper research so I would be satisfied with my results. And when I didn’t…well lets just say I had a tangled web of weave brushing it every 5 minutes (shudders at the thought again)

Living in STL I’ve seen some jacked up weaves and for some reason you can tell that their wearing them because their own hair is so jacked up. But then I think, is my hair gonna go down that path if I continue pushing for tracks. Now I’m definitely not a glue girl and refuse to do it unless it’s a special occasion and it’s only bangs (even then I hate it). The main reason I get weaves because I have OCD when it comes to my hair, it has to be different every few months whether weave or my own, I just get so bored.
But is there something more?

Am I deep into insecurity about wearing my own hair for a length of time? What’s interesting is that I don’t have a bad grade of hair. It’s thin but healthy and grows, so why do I keep doing this to myself?

I’m not sure. But I do know that at the moment, I have an itch for something new, whether it be my own or another weave. However it may be time for a rest.

But I ask myself why would I wanna wear my own hair when it’s about to be 80-100 degrees everyday?? The sweaty frizzy bang is not a good look.

What do you think about weave kabqueens? Should I weave again or not weave?
