What to Expect While You’re Expecting (A Weave)

1013481_10100971251002227_1126984059_nHey guys, I got a weave. (Technically hair extensions and not a weave, but I love saying that my hair is UNBEWEAVEABLE.)

I really didn’t like that short hair cut – it was pretty triangular and unflattering – and I’ve always been curious about hair extensions. They’re pretty costly and probably a big decision for many woman, so I thought I’d share a bit in case anyone else is in the market. Here’s what I’ve learned:

YOU’RE GONNA HAVE A LOT OF HAIR. Be prepared to sit on your hair. Be prepared to get tangled up in it while you sleep, especially if you toss and turn a lot like I do. I’ve started sleeping with it in a braid to keep it out of the way and tangle-free.

YOU’LL GET ASKED ABOUT IT A BUNCH FOR THE FIRST FEW DAYS.¬†There’s no way to hide that you magically got super long hair overnight. Lots of people will make jokes like, “Oh your hair grows so fast!”

IT MAY NOT MATCH YOUR HAIR.¬†Color-wise, my extensions match perfectly. However, the extensions aren’t¬†necessarily¬†the same. The products that I was using on my hair make my extensions feel a little dry, and the stuff that makes them feel silky smooth make my natural hair a little greasy. It might take some time to find the right balance of products.

YOU’VE STILL GOT SHORT HAIR.¬†I’ve been wearing my hair wavy, half because I sleep with it in a braid and wake up with the awesome waves pictured above, and half because it helps¬†camouflage¬†the area where my natural ¬†hair stops and gives way to all extensions. It’s a little harder to hide when I wear it straight.

YOU’VE GOT TO BE GENTLE.¬†I have Hot Heads extensions, which are kind of taped into your hair. I was trying to detangle one night and¬†accidentally pulled one out. The selfies that followed were great Reddit fodder.
