I will be honest and say I should have written this post a few hours ago but I couldn’t get past the “Why would someone do that to themselves?” or the “Is it really that serious, can a person not appreciate their own hair that much?”
Those are all judgmental statements and while we live in a judgmental world we aren’t called to judge all the time and today I wasn’t here for my own thoughts on this situation!
Let me get off my issues and tell the story, here is a lady that literally allowed her weave* to remain in her hair for 2 years straight, no exaggeration.
Her picture was shared by her stylist at Elite Strands a salon in Brooklyn. The salon shared pictures and Instagram videos across social media platforms about their client how they tackled the removal of the 2 year old weave*.
The question I had, was what happened as the hair grew out because as most of us know your hair never stops growing.
The answer was pretty easy to find, the client would have new tracks glued close to the top of her head which means the stylist was faced with old glue, old tracks and tangled hair from 2 years worth of neglect.
The only way out of this mess would be to big chop and that is exactly what the salon confirmed happened:
One thing is for sure the stylist is dedicated to what she does. She saw this as a challenge and quite frankly it definitely benefited her on business level.
Many of the commentors on Instagram were pretty mean, calling the lady ‘nasty’ but like I mentioned before that is just the world we live in.
It is very difficult not to look at a 2 year old weave and not wonder if the hair was ever washed? How was the state of her scalp? Is this even real?
But again I will refrain from over thinking it, I will leave that to you guys! Comment below and let us know what you think about this story.
