Hair Loss, Pain, And Hair Thinning Are Abnormal When Removing Braids, Hair Extensions, Or Weaves

The cost for looking good can vary depending on each women’s tastes and status; however as of recent thin hair and loss of natural hair has become the price many women are paying to “look good”.

So many women are settling for pain, thin hair and even bald spots when removing bonding glue or braids. It is unacceptable. It is unhealthy to loose hair when removing these hair styles, but so many women feel it is a sacrifice they must pay.

When a women wears any type of hairstyle for 4 weeks or more the hair can become dry, and filled with build up of dust, sweat, and oils. The natural hair can even begin to get matted like a dreadlock. And when the natural hair is mixed with hair attachments there is a tendency for the hair to tangle in with the add-on hair as it gets older.

With this knowledge, women must use caution when having these hair styles removed-that way they won’t have to settle for pain, hair loss or thin hair. Stylists are not taking the time to care for their clients hair by being trained in proper removal of hairstyles. They just experiment with different products which can cause adverse reactions to the scalp.

Alopecia, scalp discolorations, white spots and persistent flaking of the scalp (dandruff) are all byproducts that have been on the increase due to improper removal methods. Improper removal of the adhesive for Lace Frontal wigs and extensions are causing some women to lose their whole frontal hairline. It is unacceptable.

The natural hair of a women is her crown and glory, and should be cared for and maintained no matter what hairstyle she is adorning. Hair is a women’s God given natural beauty and when we do not take the time to care for our hair, or demand that our stylist respects our hair; it is a manifestation of lack of self worth and love of self.

It is so disheartening that nowadays the crown and glory of a women is based on which type of hair extension she is wearing, I.e. Spanish Wavy, Brazilian Silky or Asian Yaki.

There are many products on the market that are specifically created for removing any type of braid style, weave, hair extension or even dreadlocks. It is up to every women to ask and do the research. Hairdressers are talented and they need to sincerely value this talent by properly applying and removing add-on hair or hair attachments. If a stylist does not know the proper method of removing any particular hairstyle, do not put it in your clients hair!

It is never too late to save your hair, start loving your natural hair today.
