I don't personally wear them, but I think the Beyonce style that looks so fake is what people should avoid. I can definitely understand wanting to change style or color and not wanting to do that to your natural hair, because nothing grows out slower than a bad haircut!I wear weave and my natural hair and I also go to the Egyptian salons and they do a great job of straightening my hair and it has bounce and looks great!!! I use weave to change up my hair styles and men love it!!! Sometimes I get a short weave kinda like the old school Halle Barry short style because I'm not cutting my own hair short! I also get the long straight Nikki Minaj hairstyle with the bangs and I get lots of attention from that!! Sometimes I wear the OMBRÉ style with a sew in omg that looks so cute!! So yes I weave and wear my own hair just like my white friend who wears weave sometimes only she calls it EXTENTIONS
I know the white folks wear extensions all the time, especially the ponytails.
