I'm a young black female...a senior at a high school where black is the dominate race.So basically I see many girls that where weave. I also do...but for me it's now a sometime thing. However I want to know how you feel about those who are seriously addicted to weave and can't be seen without it,I have my thoughts, but i want to know what you think about it.Be as harsh as you want!!!

It just gotta look believable.
Can't stand seeing women whose weaves are all shiny and their real hair looks rough. I don't want to be able to tell from 10 feet away that you are wearing a weave.

Hair weaves are just another style that is popular right now and eventually it will run its course. Remember how in the late 90s it was the style for black women to have hair wrapped into tall, stiff beehive do's? There were also times when everyone had a gheri curl, or when everyone had an afro.

People should stop stressing over weaves. The fake hair thing is just another fad that will come and go.

Hmmm, I never really looked at it that way...as a fad.

The thing about weaves is that regular use can damage your real hair and scalp.

For anyone else that leaves a comment...My main question is why do you think women that always where weave have such an addiction to it...what do you think causes this?

I don't wear weaves and will never wear a weave....However the only problem I have with some weave-wearers is that they are never seen without a weave and the fact that some are ashamed of their hair.

As long as some black women continue to overprocess, and neglect their hair's health there will always be a "weave addiction." I just wish more black women knew how to take care of their hair. There are great websites dedicated to the health and management of black hair.

I do know that when a weave is done correctly it doesn't harm the hair. There is nothing wrong with wearing weave every once in a while(or while transitioning) or adding pieces to your hair for thickness.

I feel if you like wearing a weave, wear it.

Just try to make it look natural.

Also why do people always associate weaves with black women.

Europeans have been wearing wigs 300 years ago.

Look at George Washington, Ben Franklin and countless other men who were white that wore wigs.

Nobody says nothing about that.

Also, trust me the first female ever to buy a wig was a white woman, that's right, I said it.

Now, when Black sisters wear Wigs and Weave, and alot of women look great in them, it becomes negative.

White women wear weaves, oh, my bad, they call them extensions. Yeah okay.

I feel if you want to enhance your hair, it's your life and your decision.

If you can't grow it, let somebody sew it.
Long as you feel good, that is all that matters.

Thats true...I know other races of women also wear weave,extentions,whichever...b ut i know that black females are the ones that get bashed for wearing it. I see it all on youtube how bad they talk about us,saying black women want to be aryan. I left a comment on one videos by saying ofcourse black women aren't the only ones who wear weave...and did you ever think about what media portrays. I know one would say who cares what media portrays, but when a girl doesnt feel pretty,looks on tv and in magazines then sees long flowing hair a whole different texture from her hair she may think she needs that to be more beautiful.I know its not true...but some can't help it when they want to feel good about themselves.

Well, I wear weaves. I am proud of it too, and I never leave the house with out my hair done. After maturing and realizing the true meaning to beauty I can leave the house with out a weave. Yes, i was one of the addicted ones. I was not trying to be white, lol, But I thought my real hair was too damaged to show. My mother didnt take good care of my natural hair when I was younger so I just wore braids. Now I am older it doesnt matter much. I have a particular style I wear but if I have to go with out one, I will.

As black women, mostly everything we do, we have to be scrutinized.

I feel wearing your natural hair is beautiful as well as wearing a weave or braids is just as fabulous.

I also feel if the enhancements are available to us, then why not utilize it.

The only enhancement the average black woman wears is a weave. The majority of us don't get plastic surgery. We are just serious when it comes to our hair (LOL).

Don't you notice how the media portray our butts, like we are overweight, please, when Kim Kardashian sports her big behind now it's in fashion. Come on. Look at all the new trends in plastic surgery, Full Lips, hips and buttocks surgery. We are already blessed with those natural feautures.

Also we wear it well my sister.

Could it be that these women are just wearing what they feel good in? Or time / financial restraints makes the weave a more economical choice? I personally find a nice hairdo attractive (weave, bald, natural, or whatever). i don't think we should crucify people for their individual preferences. I like baggy jeans with a little sag just off the waist. But now i see the guys wearing the strait legged tight jeans with their boxers looking like they are being strangled (the Lil Wayne look)but to each is own do what you feel, and if you judge you really have to take some self worth classes.

c/s. I'm so sick of people pointing that one thing out about us. Hair is all they can seem to point and hollar about when botox injections, tanning, butt injections, tummy tucks, hair implants,permanent make-up,weaves,nose jobs, brow lifts and the list goes on, i've even heard of some WW having there you know what sewn back after multiple childbirths.

Yes, the procedure is called labiaplasty (sp)

I don't know it they have the procedure mainly due to childbirth.(lol)

Let me be nice.

What triggers me is that anything a BW feels good about, we are always ridiculed.

In addition, I agree, the media never says anything negative about all of the plastic surgery procedures WW have. Most of these procedures are TEMPORARY and they have to maintain it every 5 years, needless to add, these procedures have a 50% of being fatal.

I never heard article about getting your hair weaved being fatal. I would never want to get breast enhancements (I don't need it) but, I heard you lose the sensitive feelings, your (nips) become numb.

ive had one weave, REMY HAIR 20" COLOUR ONE :) using gold ond glue and i can see why they are addictive

i think a weave addiction is understandable, people tell you your hair looks nice,and who doesnt love a compliment?
i think weave is like make up, women who dont leave the housee without foundation or mascara they are both artifical and can be removed
but no-one bats an eyelid or open there mouth to ay a word when a woman doesnt leave her house without makeup

weave is also a way for other black females to make small talk, the only cnversation black women tend to have with black females they dont know is about hair, what type she uses and what products she uses

HI NUBIAN X,

How have you been?

I highly agree,

Sometimes wearing a weave for your own personal enhancement is nice, just try not to get addicted to it.

I also agree at the same time love your natural hair as well. Keep your real hair manageable.
