Many Woman have their own reasoning why they prefer to wear extensions. Meaning they wear it because they have a choice! Do you really think women of other nationalities aren't making the same choice?Of course they are
Many races wear weave, even Caucasian woman wear weave! Not only do black women wear it weave is everywhere lol. I think that it is a symbolism of their culture. not all african americans were born in africa, but the culture of hair weaving came from there.
Most woman with curly hair, short hair or even kinky haired woman wears weaves because of versatility. Some woman feel that their type of hair is much harder to maintain, being more sensitive and easy to breakage whenever it's washed or styled. Hair weaving for them causes their hair to be easier to maintain-not needing to wash it properly, comb, and change style frequently, and it's stylish for their culture.
Women..in general, wear weaves for different reasons. Beyonce wears a weave because she has a very active lifestyle. She wants to protect her own hair from the harmful affects of frequent hair style changes. African American or African women have the STRONGEST hair on the planet when it hasn't been damaged by styling products and excessive straightening or heat . So...with that said...WEARING A WEAVE IS MERELY BY CHOICE...NO MATTER WHAT NATIONALITY.
We as AA women wear our hair in weaves and extensions for various reasons. But it seems to me that most of the people answering are not even AA. The reason is the same as why other cultures like to see their hair in a different style. We like change as well! Other races wear weaves as well, should the question be that those races just wanna look like us?
Musicians, like Beyonce, wear weave to protect their hair. They have to change their hairstyles so much, it is better to have a weave or wear a wig than to burn out the hair.
Weave can be easier to handle than your regular hair to maintain. But it could also be just as much work BLENDing the natural hair with the texture of the weave. I feel women want to have long, hair in general and refer to a weave to accomplish that want..
I Prefer wearing weaves due to my active lifestyle and feel that it is much easier to maintain. My hair is long and many have stated to me that I shouldn't wear weaves. But... I love Extensions and can't let go.
