As the temperatures are steadily dropping, most of us are starting to seriously consider which protective hairstyles will best serve us this winter.
Having a weave installed is a great way to protect your naturally grown tresses, while having the flexibility to experiment with different colors, lengths, and textures. Minimizing the stress and manipulation on your hair when it's being tested by harshly low temperatures is the goal!
With the oversaturation of hair vendors online and in beauty supply store near you, it is not hard to find a great deal on bundles of hair. However, the quality is often up for debate until AFTER you have invested your hard earned money. For women who love to sport a weave: Investing in high quality hair is a form of self-care. At first, the prices of luxury hair companies may send you running to buying your hair wholesale but with a slight increase of your investment, you will receive a long-lasting quality product.
Here are 3 reasons to start investing in high quality hair:
- You get what you pay for. If you luck up on some cheap hair, you most likely will have to replace it every 60-90 days, which is like throwing your money out of the window. Quality hair lasts from 6 months to a year!
- High quality hair does not have you walking around shedding like a rug. You will lose fewer strands a day so it's less headache, more longevity. You will be able to run your fingers through your hair with ease and without embarrassment.
- You have more freedom to experiment if you invest in virgin hair. 100% virgin hair is received undyed, untreated, bouncy, and soft. It would easily take to hair dyes and low manipulation styling methods such as flexi rodding.
The great thing is, we are finally at a point where we do not have to sacrifice our budget for luxury. Many quality hair companies offer bundle deals that allow you to achieve the look and feel you desire without being financially irresponsible. Stay tuned for great quality black owned hair companies that you can follow on Instagram, and even schedule an appointment with if you are in their area:
