As you know or may not know, I wear weaves and have been wearing sew-in weaves and extensions for years. People always get surprised by my natural hair, so I wanted do blog post about my real hair and answering questions that I constantly get regarding my natural hair.
When I was younger I had no clue how to properly take care of my natural hair – I used get my hair relaxed regularly and apply heat constantly without using any kind of heat protector. A few years ago I decided to stop straightening my natural hair, and only wear my sew-in weaves. To my surprise my hair started to grow like crazy.

I have now come to a stage where my hair is at its longest and I am eager to see how long it can get. I realx my hair twice a year and I have not straightened my natural hair in two years apart from my leave-out when I wear my sew-ins.
1. Why do you wear weaves when your hair is already long?
I love the fact that I am able to do whatever hairstyle or colour I want with my weave, without damaging my natural hair. Sew-ins are protective hairstyles that basically protects my natural hair and when my hair is protected from heat, like I mentioned, my hair grows.
2. Why do you never wear your natural hair out?
I love changes and I usually get extremely bored with one hairstyle for a long time, with my weaves I can change hairstyle much more often and again without damaging my natural hair. I do wear my natural hair out, but as I’m not happy with the length of my hair I wear my weaves more often.
So I am up for this “hair growth challenge” that I wanted to share with you. I will continue to wear my weave but start taking care of my natural hair under my weave a lot better. So stay tuned for length checks, updates and much more of my natural hair.
