How can you help your hair grow while wearing a wig?

Question Posted Monday July 30 2012, 9:44 pm

My hair was long but I got some weave sewn into my head and it was really tight when I took it out 3 weeks later, my hair was shorter especially in the back. What can I do to help my hair grow under a wig?

Ok I'm sick of reading weave over and over again On here and I know this is the same damn person and I also know that every single girl that does weaves doesn't know how to take care of her hair. So here you go. If you think this is rude, don't keep reading. -.-

Stop doing weaves, and wigs, anything else that pulls on your hair at all! Just stop! You put fake hair on your head to try to stretch the hair to "make it grow" when you're really just pulling it out and you still think, after seeing it falling out, that it's helping it grow. What the hell? Newsflash! It's not! I have another idea and frankly I really don't care if you give me a 1 or not because I'm intentionally being rude here.

Ever since I was 8, my mom started to put relaxers in. If you don't agree, stop reading. A relaxer, or perm, as everyone insists on calling it, is a chemical creme used to "relax," or chemically straighten, your hair permanently. Notice how I said YOUR hair. If you do a relaxer, it would be straight up stupid to put a wig on afterword. Or weave. That's like eating then throwing up right after.

Putting relaxers in is a dedicated process. You have to do it every 3 months (be as exact as you can) or your hair will fall out. I know it sounds wrong, but it's kind of like watering a plant. If you don't keep giving it water, it will eventually wilt and die. But, if you keep doing it, it will grow and stay healthy. Same thing with relaxers.

Now, don't go out and do a relaxer once and then conveniently "forget" the part where I said you MUST do it every 3 months.

My hair looks better than it did 6 years ago, when I was 8. It's still thick, voluminous, and when it grows, it's more obvious, since I still do my relaxers.

I hope you stop asking the same damn question, listen to me and actually do it. Good luck -.-

You've asked this question a few times now, and it's clear that no-one is able to.

May I suggest that you ask your hairdresser/stylist, as they will be experts.

Good luck!
