Darrius Peace, natural hair expert, teacher, and workshop instructor has introduced a new Summer Hair Video series. In this series he shares his input on how you can avoid being in the “bald head click”.
“I want women to showcase their natural hair in the most beautiful way so other women who are considering transitioning will feel comfortable making the decision” says Peace.
He finds curls to be one of the best low manipulations styles because it doesn’t put too much stress on your strands. However, he advises if you want to go with braids or weaves for a full on protective style you should let your stylist know that you should have very little to no pull.
See all it takes is a little communication! There is absolutely nothing wrong with letting your stylist know that you do not want a lot of tension applied. Over time too much tension from weaves and braids can causing thinning and in the worse case scenario traction alopecia. Thank you Darrius for sharing this much needed advice.
