Hair Care with Weaves and Extensions

Written by lyricsmama on October 30, 2015 – 6:22 PM -

What is a hair weave?
When you integrate hair — human or artificial — with your own, the result is known as a hair weave. The additional hair can be interwoven with your own, or it can be placed on top of the latter. People make hair weaves for various reasons — some may want to enhance the colour of their hair without having to put in chemicals, which can be harmful, or radically change their hair texture. They may also want to give their hair more volume or length, or hair weaves may simply be in fashion in a given place at a given time. Some people wear them to conceal hair loss, although hair weaves can themselves be a cause thereof, as we shall see.

Starting with a brief history…
The use of hair weaves dates back at least to the time of the ancient Egyptians, who used extensions of various sorts to make their hair look more elegant. Wigs, made in a variety of shapes and styles, were popular in Europe and the colonies beginning in the seventeenth century. Hair weaves as such did not, however, become popular until the 1950s.

Examples of hair weaves
There are a variety of hair waves for people with varying tastes and styles, such as Remy and Indian. Some dark-haired packages look great on people with light skin.

Others look just fine for those with darker complexions; this “Brazilian ombre” hair weaves contrasts beautifully with the skin of the wearer:

For quite some time, Indian and Latina locks have been especially popular because of their structural similarity to white hair and their low cost compared to Euro technology hair.

There are also companies that specialize in providing hair weaves for customers. International Hair Company is one such place, and they perform ECO Indian hair, Remy hair (closures and blond), clip-ins, tape and styling tools. One good book on the topic is Hair Weaves for Dumb Girls by Tanika Torrice.

Traction alopecia
Sometimes, wearing a hair weave — or any style — for prolonged periods can make the hair just above the ears or along the fore hairline fall out, a condition known as traction alopecia. Black American women are particularly vulnerable to this kind of thing, which can cause scarring in (and is also the chief cause of hair loss among) such people. The fact that hair weaves can cause traction alopecia sounds ironic, given that so many people wear them expressly to conceal that condition; but it can be avoided if the wearer takes care to perform regular maintenance on the weave.

Traction alopecia takes place because the hair of the braid to which the weave is attached continues to grow, and because the tight braiding and the snug fit can create tension on hair when the risk of it falling out is already great, putting pressure onto the follicles.

The longer the follicles remain dormant, the more conspicuous the hair loss will be in those areas that have been subject to the stress that the weaves put on them. The braids, being confined in the hair, create their own “tracks” that enable them to stand out therefrom.

To prevent traction alopecia from occurring, you should take the weave off regularly, re-braiding your natural hair and snugly reattaching the piece.

Innovation By Design…

Written by lyricsmama on November 22, 2008 – 3:15 PM -

Recently I made a change in my hairstyle. Not only did I cut it, but I dyed it as well. I was sick of the two toned color my hair had, and finally, for the winter, went back to my natural color. With the change of style and color, sometimes I like to change my products as well and I had a great opportunity to try out White Sands’ professional hair care products.

White Sands Volumizing & Color Secure Nourishing Shampoo and Volumizing & Color Secure Corrective Conditioner are made just for those with colored hair helping to prevent your color from fading and lucking your color in and letting it last longer in your hair. When using the products together, they give your hair color some help by locking it into the hair cuticle and sealing that hair while at the same time, adding some great shine and giving you healthy looking hair without any residue or buildup.

One of the things I like about the White Sands shampoo and conditioner is that these products are sulfate free. The shampoo also contains the herbal properties of an extract called Hellogenol, this is what helps you secure your hair color and lock in a balance and moisture with a weightless feel. Hellogenol also protects tinted hair from color loss by neutralizing daily UV exposure while reducing UV damage that can be done to your hair by 18%.

The Volumizing & Color Secure Corrective Conditioner helps to reverse the damaging effects that have happened to your hair, it not only replenishes any lost moisture from colored, permed or over processed hair but it also gives you even more incredible body and shine.

Since dying my hair over a few weeks ago, I have found that the White Sands Volumizing & Color Secure Nourishing Shampoo and Volumizing & Color Secure Corrective Conditioner are actually really helping any fade or wash out that usually tends to happen after a while with home hair coloring.

You can find White Sands hair products at many salons and spa’s you can also check out their website www.whitesandsproducts.com to find a location near you or to view more of their amazing professional hair products.

WIN IT!

White Sands has given A Wrestling Addicted Mommy both a bottle of Volumizing & Color Secure Nourishing Shampoo and Volumizing & Color Secure Corrective Conditioner to giveaway to one of my readers. To win all you have to do is head over to the White Sands website and let me know some of the other products they carry.
