Let’s have a hair chat about sew-in weaves and hair growth. In this Q and A with UniversalSalons.Com, Fayetteville, North Carolina, stylist Marcus Doss delivers a professional opinion and maintenance tips. Here’s a partial “read-out” of their discussion.
Do sew-in weave hairstyles tear up your hair? If they don’t tear up your hair, do sew-in weaves help you grow your own hair? The answer to these questions boils down to the person you use to install your hair weave.
Marcus says the difference between an install that will aid hair growth and one that might damage your hair starts before the hair additions are applied. …when you use someone to install your hair additions that don’t understand healthy hair requirements, you’re going to have problems. “It really depends on the way your additions are installed as to whether they will help with your hair growth or not,” Marcus says.
Properly installed weaves are considered “protective” hairstyles because they shield your hair from the harsh elements of everyday life. While your hair additions are styled in an elegant look, it’s also dealing with all of the effects of the dust, wind, and debris of your environment. The hair additions are braving the environment while your own hair is safely braided or molded underneath the style.
