Stylist Removes Her Clients Weave After 9 Months of Consistent Wear

styledbybonita
A couple months ago Stylist @StylebyBonita on Instagram had the daunting task of removing a woman’s weave that was left in her hair for 9 months. According to the post, the client was disabled suffering from a broken arm and could not remove the weave which was left in even after the arm had healed.

This was the caption the stylist had on one of the photos:

This is the result of a sew-in weave left in for 9 months on #naturalhair . It is important to note that dandruff, product build-up, mold, and fungus, can reside in your hair and on your scalp without proper hair care.

Shampooing sew-ins without sitting under the dryer to fully dry it, will also result in moldy hair. I advise anyone who wears sew-ins not to go past 2-3 months with their install. Matted hair cannot always be detangled, in this case, I cut it off, cleansed and treated the hair and scalp. I was happy to give this client a luxurious treatment.

Even though the stylist was able to help this lady and save most of her hair, we have to admit that we have seen way too many similar stories on social media.

The truth is, if you want to wear a weave whether it be for aesthetics or as a protective style, you absolutely cannot leave the hair in for longer than 8 weeks.

Wearing a weave as a means to forget about your own hair or just as a band-aid for a deeper problem will eventually catch up with you. Sweat, sebum, dirt all covered up on top of your scalp is very unhealthy and should not be treated lightly.

If you like wearing weaves but cannot afford to switch things up every 8 weeks, try wearing a wig for awhile, getting braids or anything that will give your scalp a break.

Do you wear a weave? How often do you get it re done?

  4. Brianna Barksdale

    No no no just no excuse “even after the arm had healed it was left in” just plain ole nasty if she was someone I knew I wouldn’t eat from her just plain ole nasty ❌❌❌

  5. Cileane White

    She’s lucky the stylist was as talented as she is, and that her hair wasn’t TOTALLY shaved off!

  6. Mohammad SA

    She should be ashamed of herself. Broken arm, or no arms…she should have asked for help. My goodness, what was on her head looked like a matted dog. Just plain nasty.

  7. Nea Mack

    That was disgusting. Almost made me throw up. I know it was stinky. She was washing it, probably excessive sweating and it wasn’t drying. I’ve left a weave in for a little over 2 mos and this has NEVER happened. I also wasn’t saturating my hair with water. I would dry shampoo the places I could every so often and rinse or lightly wash the weave BUT I also didn’t use products in my hair to have to wash it often. My sebum did whatever it could and I was cool.

    I know women that keep their weave in this long.they also go back to their stylist for a wash and to get it tighten.i know her hair smelled.

  9. Elsa Drayton

    We as black women must love our natural hair that is the only way we’re going to love ourselves.

  10. Neka Nicole

    I can’t go a month without taking my weave out! Don’t no weave last 9 months that’s just gross

  11. Anisha Bolding

    That’s just Nasty she would have got a #1 a Michael Jordan #A bald head #a naked head I would have taxed her ass for that

  12. Deborah Graves

    That is so sad no way should that should have been still in her hair after arm healed. I had surgery on my shoulder. I still have serious issues doctor instructed not to do things like fastening bra from back washing hair. Etc. But I would never leave my hair that long and not take care of it hygiene

  13. Quyen Nguyen

    Is like a dead animal on her head , im surprise the stylish didnt shave her head off, jezz nasty as hell no excuse for been dirty .

  14. Rashawnea Reid-Williams

    This is just trifling….I cannot find another word to describe this. Your a grown ass adult woman if your hygiene is this bad don’t wear weaves.
