There are times that your hair feels like it needs a miracle to grow that little inch longer, when all hair foods dubbed ‘fertilizers’ fail flat despite their exaggerated price tags,when your hair can neither make a clean ponytail or at least be combed all flat.

Everyone has had this kind of OMG (Oh my God) case of hair gone wrong. At a moment like this, it’s only wise to do an overhaul of texture and length by introducing your hair to our little secret miracle-hair extensions.

From the diva of talk shows, Oprah winfrey, to glamorous actresses like Gabriel Union, hair weaves are accessories used to fashionably complete any outfit. Women wear hair weaves not just to prevent natural hair disasters but also to add length, colour and texture.

The beauty with weaves is that they can be used to routinely change a look.

Weaves can either be stitched on or glued onto ones hair. To have the weave sewn in, would require braiding the hair. The key is to have a professional do it so that the weave doesn’t end up a mess.

There are numerous types of weaves to choose from synthetic hair to 100 percent human hair.  Synthetic weaves are cheaper but do not last long. Human hair is more expensive but when on it can be washed, tonged, curled and set in any style.

When buying a weave, choose from styles like straight, flat ironed or curly. Each of these styles can be styled to change the final look by holding it up with pins.

A major drawback when it comes to hair extensions is the occasional scalp dryness and the endless scratching. A way out of this is ensuring that saloonist properly oils your scalp before stitching on the extension.

Rwandan women are known to have beautiful hair and weaves seem like a distant idea that falls on deaf ear.

However everyone’s hair needs a break from chemicals and braids and a weave might just do the trick. When it’s put on right no one would ever guess it isn’t your hair. In any case it’s your hair since you bought it.
