Razor Chic of Atlanta Salon recently posted a video of a 23-year-old black woman who has suffered major hair loss due to braids and sew-ins.
They wanted people to be aware of the hair loss and severe damage that can happen when wearing weaves(affiliate link) non stop without taking care of your hair.
Here was the caption from the stylist:
