Lessons To Be Learned From Naomi Campbell’s Hairline

Naomi campbell olympic dinner

2. Weaves should not be worn for extended periods of time. I’m a great believer in this, although its probably more to do with my itchy fingers wanting to play in my own hair, but it’s also a great tip for avoiding stress to your folicles and matting. 6-8 weeks is the maximum period for wearing a weave before you have to take it down.

3. Don’t use the same braiding pattern over and over again. Again this is to avoid stress to the same follicles continuously. Some women have had brilliant length retention with wearing weaves back to back but I would strongly suggest switching things up with every install. Leave your perimetre out sometimes for a partial weave, and sometimes braid all your hair up for a full weave.



4. Don’t weigh your hair down by installing to much hair. I have already included this tip in my weave tips article but it’s worth a mention here as well. If you are micro braiding adding too much extension hair to a tiny section of your own hair will cause breakage and thinning.

5. Don’t braid at all if you already have thinning edges. If your edges have already been affected, don’t assume that covering up with weave will encourage them to grow back in. Kiss goodbye to braiding of any kind until those babies grow back. Mild to moderate traction alopecia can be treated quite successfully. Essential oils like RosemaryLavender and peppermint are tipped as being pretty good with helping regrowth. Mega tek is also heavily backed in the hair regrowth stakes. If you find that these treatments are not working, it may be time to go in for the hard guns like Rogaine topical solution or as a last resort, hair transplants.

6. Don’t apply relaxers to bald areas. Yes, relaxers aggravate the condition and may even damage the follicles beyond repair. Many a time women have gone natural for personal reasons and seen traction alopecia disappear along with the relaxer. I’m not saying that everyone with traction alopecia should go natural but you should certainly not dismiss the idea without fair consideration.

It’s a shocking statistic but hair transplant procedures have increased sharply among African American women, particularly young women in the last few years. Wearing weaves full time is a sure sign of self esteem issues. I’m not here to preach but I speak the truth when I say that your own hair was never the problem in the first place.

Yvette Martin

No worries here. Never have worn weaves. Never will.

Problem is alot of ladies get the braids too tight and itches which cause breaking just ripping out the hairline, not treating their hair properly while the weaves is in, once it is taken out not enuff deep condition, before or after and not leave hair out long enuff for it to get the strength back… cover it up again now what happen if you do it every 4 to 6 weeks as if its a perm, hair fall out and u lose edges like hers… I can not leave weaves in my head for longer than 4 weeks or it drive me crazy! so I dont know how ladies leave it in for 3 months and worst some dont wash it, got to be crazy! , many ladies who does sew in hair dont have a clue how to do it and mess up other people hair… dont trust anyone in your hair… learn to do it your self!

Uloaku Abazie

I don’t do sew ins or glue ins at all. And I stopped getting perms. I love my hair too much. I also stopped putting heat to it. I wash part into sections braid and let air dry.

You suppose to take breaks from weaves an keep your hair nourished Smh..but to each his own.I got good hair so I can add length and take out..and my hair dwn my back..;-)

lisa

What do you mean by “good hair”? that statement is so ignorant. Black people need to stop using that term. This is an example of brainwashing by the dominant European culture.

Miss Dee Meanor

@LovintheFarm, I agree with Lisa. What do you mean by good hair? If you have any hair, then you have good hair.

Sonia

What a stupid comment. Can you explain what “good hair” is?

Helena Showell

I have Type 4 healthy, gorgeous hair! ANY beautiful hair of ANY race/ethnicity that is healthy and well-cared for is “good hair”! I wear semi-freeform locs that are now to my waist! 🙂 My hair is now truly my crowning glory.

Diamond MJ Sanchez

This has nothing to do with weave. It’s more than likely from the chemicals.

Samantha Morris

Chemicals kill the hairline that’s why I went natural.
