The pros and cons to weaving your hair and wearing it natural all depends on your lifestyle. If you opt to having hair extensions to add fullness and length, you should bear in mind that adding long heavy extensions can put pressure on your scalp. If the hair is long and heavy, may result in puling hair out, and may cause long-term damage in the form of thinning and pre-mature balding. So make sure the person that does it for you does it right and does it professionally and every now and then, you should give your hair a weave break for at least 2 weeks without having any hair extensions!
You should also treat your extensions just like you would your own hair. When having your weave sewn in, you can wash it along with your natural hair. Unfortunately, weave hair can get brittle and dry because it is not attached to the scalp and therefore doesn’t receive any of the body’s naturally nourishing oils. To get this look you need either synthetic 18 inch hair deep weave or go for the 100% Human hair 18 inch Italian weave.
