I was not sure how exactly they would be put in my hair so I was a bit nervous as I also thought a weave was just for black girls. I got my virgin hair extensions from hairweavon.com and couldn't believe the quality of the hair, feels just like my own.Read More

Even your hair extensions need a blow dry sometimes. A weave is a great way to wear hair extensions without the need for glueing. They last weeks before you have to re-weave and give you long luscious hair at a low cost. The secret is to use good quality human hair extensions for your weave, as it will look and feel real, just like your own hair. And if you get good human hair for your weave, it will last you ages and you can re-use thesame hair for more than a year.Read More

We all want to make that “perfect” first impression. Whether we’re primarily concerned with our personality, personal appearance, intelligence, or all of the above, first impressions matter.
Style of haircut is one of the first things that speaks about us before we even open our mouths to speak for ourselves. A haircut says a great deal about who you are, so don’t fall into the trap of sticking to the same old hairstyle you’ve always sported.

One of the most traumatic part of cancer diagnosis can be hair loss. Most women don’t realize how important their hair is to them until it is lost. Most cancer sufferers will lose their hair approximately 10 days after treatment begins. This can make you feel vulnerable and exposed. Something that you have been dealing with privately with your friends and family is now being announced to the world.
A wig that is practically identical to your own hair, in colour and style, can help you look and feel like yourself during this time.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen pictures of celebrities with gorgeous hair in magazines and couldn’t stop myself from being jealous of their beautiful hair. I’ve spent so much time wondering why I was stuck with hair that would never look so voluminous and healthy. Though I knew celebrities had teams of stylists, I assumed the hair was their own. Boy was I wrong.
As the LA Times article points out, “No matter their ethnicity, stars and models frequently augment their natural hair with wigs, woven-in or clip-on extensions or hairpieces.” Most, if not all, celebrities utilize either clip-in hair extensions, lace-front wigs, or weave.

Human Hair Extensions and what they mean to black women.
Recently I compared hair extensions for black women to fake tan for white women. For black women, it’s just one of those things we can’t live without. We’ll always find the money for it. Since the introduction of human hair extensions, the hair troubles of a black woman have been diminished. Human hair extensions allow you to wash your hair as often as you wish; you can dye it, straighten it and style it in whatever way you want.
I am a runner myself and it’s great to know that my hair will still look and feel natural after weeks and weeks of running and washing. Human hair extensions from www.hairweavon.com will also last you 2 years or more which is more cost effective in the long term.Read More

Recently I was invited on a radio station to talk about African hair and the best way that I could explain it to a non African person, was to say that ‘Hair is big deal for black women, hair extensions for black women is the equivalent of fake tan for Caucasian women’.
www.hairweavon.com specialises in human hair extensions for black women so most of our blogs are about black women’s hair however this post goes out to our Caucasian sisters. Most Caucasian women don’t know about African hair or understand why we black women rely on hair extensions so much and for many years I have tried to educate my friends about how difficult black hair can be.Read More
