5 Celebs Who Prove That Weave Protective Styling Works For Hair Growth

Angela Simmons Weave Vs Real Hair

I know I bleat on about protective styling, hey, hair growth is the point of BHI’s existence and protective styling is vital if length is your ultimate goal. However, some of you are still not convinced about using weaves in your hair regimens.

Celebs tend to wear extensions mostly as a way to protect their own hair from the ravages of constant backstage hair styling. As a nice side effect, a lot of them have discovered the growing power that leaving-your-hair-alone can have.

These are busy women and I can’t imagine that they have a great deal of time for hair so I’m sure that a lot of them have good stylists who give their tresses protein treatments and steam sessions while imparting their wisdom.  If you are a follower of BHI and have been using a good hair regimen, I’m sure you would have superior length retention by adding weaves or in fact any other protective style into the mix.

Don’t let the fear of getting a Naomi Campbell hairline scare you, weaves are an excellent protective style and when done correctly, they can retain length just as well as any other.

Here are 5 celebs who don’t neglect their own hair even though they rock extensions majority of the time.

I still cant completely feel convinced of it. I’ve always had bad hair. It feels like no matter how much protective styles i do my hair breaks off. Its just apart of my gene line.

Brittney Holland

Have you tried a Biotin supplement? It will strengthen, thicken, and make your hair shine. I take 10,000 mg. You can find it on Amazon.

Cameshia Le'chette Hall

Yes i take biotin and the only thing it helps are my nails and it has already been proven to only help some people basednon genetic makeup.

Keshia Bryan

No such thing as “bad hair” hun. You just have to learn what works for your texture of hair. What works for some may not work for all.

Nyala Nan

Too much biotin makes your hair break (from my experience) I find that increasing omega fish oil, vitamin B, folic acid, vitamin A, C and D works. And I had the same problem with breakage. It takes about 3-6 months to see improvements but I still get some breakage due to the kinky coils knotting up at the ends and breaking off during washing, combing (even finger combing when wet). However the vitamins help to make the hair stronger and retain moisture better.

Rebecca Belle

Works for me

Niesha-Nike Edwards

Honestly I feel like weave protective styling isn’t for everyone, I don’t think you have to have your natural hair covered everyday of the year. It defeats my purpose of returning to my natural hair state to begin with. To each his own though

Russhell Carroll

exactly! i understand wearing it whilst the hair grows out but why still wear it everyday when the hair has grown??

Shameka Smith

Yes! Why have this beautiful hair hidden under a weave that you’re never showing. You’re protecting it for what if you’re never going to show it. You may as well have broken off damaged hair because who will ever know when you wear a weave 365.

Wendy Jean-Louis

most people wear it during the cold winter moths which can end up doing more damamge wearing it out all the time

Patricia Hunter

No one wears it 365, you have to let your hair breathe at least a mth or 2 in between installations.

Niesha-Nike Edwards

No, I’ve seen people wear it at least 360. Some people you will never see their natural hair, my best friend is one of them. And Wendy, I understand that, I never said they didn’t . Sometimes, I myself, wear protective styling during winter and summer months. However, i don’t feel like “protective styling” is a necessity. I’ve only had weave (for the looks and style not protective styling properties) in my head a handful of times in my 2.5 years natural and am a few inches away from BSL. So I don’t think it’s a must BUT to each his own

Quecina Burts Nute

Yes I agree every couple of months … I get it … But covered an entire year … My opinion that’s crazy… But as we say “to each its own”… I wear wigs every couple of months … mainly now I wear a bun or protective twists every few months… But I suppose as celebrities weaves give them day-to-day versatility without harming their natural hair… Then when they have off-season they might be too lazy to deal with their own hair… Idk

Cheyenne X Revfrolutionist

Theis hair still has thin spots n heat damage. Find me a person who wears weaves with no heat damage.

Shāy Ponts

When I wear mine, I usually do so with no leave-out. No heat damage here!

Cheyenne X Revfrolutionist

That’s what I’m talking about!! Everyone else has damaged leave out

Ronnella Powell

Yeah, I was just about to say get a full weave and not any leave out. Also if you do have leave out use jumbo rollers or smaller roller for tight curls or looser curls and comb it out to be straight with the large rollers

Cheyenne X Revfrolutionist

Good idea ^^

Zinzi Williams

I never have heat damage and i only straighten the leave out once a month and it stays straight the whole month. But i only leave the sew in, in for 8 to 10 weeks soooo lol

Tammie Faulkner Taylor

Why would a person that wears kinky curly /curly/kinky textures have heat damage?

Cheyenne X Revfrolutionist

They still straighten their leave out sometimes to “blend” ^^^

Ali Crawford

I can’t stand weave imo

Alice Caldwell

Its working for me!! Though I do stay breaks

Dahlia McQuarn

Her hair always been long

Ashley Elaine Plummer

Most of these women featured are not protective styling they just like weave.

Yolanda N Wilson Rodriguez

Your right they should just say that they like weaves . I love weave I wear my hair weaves all the time and I love it

Ni-Ni Patterson

Not a shock. Their hair is weaved up most of the time. A.S. has had long hair for as long as we’ve seen her in the spotlight anyway. It’s already been proven that you will get little to no breakage when you aren’t manipulating your hair every other minute like plenty of people who don’t know how to care for their hair. Therefore, you can actually see the growth. And there are people who can do whatever and their hair grows like weeds.

Toi Ross

Naahhh, I’m good!

Stephanie Sian James

Works for me too

Markisha Tingle

its not for Everyone and it will thin yours hair whats the point of having long hair if its thin you wont know Its thin till it straightend

Jamillah Clark

You have to take breaks tho. Not keep a weave your whole life you will be bald headed lol

Jasmine Sherelle

Works for me I take plenty of breaks tho and make sure to still keep my scalp cleansed and moisturized even with it being sewn up

Amanda Denise

Old fashion taking care of your hair promotes growth too…just sayin

Gilliana St Croix William

Totally agree to this post! My hair grows quicker and fuller when I wear a weave.

Tina Waters

They prove it works FOR THEM. No two heads of hair is the same

Tina Waters

I’m so sick of the term “protective style”. The term is used for EVERY hair style. What isn’t a protective style?
I can’t imagine all that tugging and pulling of a weave is healthy. Not to mention that you can’t get to your scalp to clean it or to condition your hair.

Felicia Hamilton

Lol for what they pay their stylist, they’d better have healthy hair under there!

Shyanne Bambino

No money does
