We black women love our weaves. For many of us our first weave is still a major rite of passage much the same as our first hair relaxer. While some never wear hair extensions at all, a large majority of us wear them with a degree of regularity be it every 6 months to every year.
Without a doubt the best hair to buy is virgin hair. Indian virgin hair leads the way as India are the largest exporter of human hair worldwide. Close behind are virgin Chinese, Brazilian and more recently Malaysian and Russian (European).
I am a true believer in the fact that the higher cost of virgin human hair is more than made up for in quality, ease of styling and long life of the hair. I genuinely buy hair extensions once a year only (sometimes less often) which saves me lots of money over buying synthetic or human hair blends from beauty supply stores every few months.
But I know that cost is an issue for some women and you may choose to wear cheaper human hair extensions. Depending on the quality of the hair you get, you may find that the ends will start frizzing up and lose their shine & vibrancy a few weeks after installing the hair. Before panicking assuming that you need to remove the weave and buy some new hair, here is a way you can revive those ends very easily.
Of course with virgin human hair extensions, frizzing ends is not a common problem but at least while you are waiting to invest in quality hair, you can look every bit as fabulous!
