wigs or weave

Rebehair | If you’re the type of girl who can’t be bothered with doing your own hair on a day to day basis, extensions are a great option. Whether you need a seasonal protective style to give your hair a break, or you’re looking for something deluxe for a special occasion like a summer wedding or a graduation, extensions can pretty much help you achieve any look you want. As a quick reference, here are some benefits and drawbacks for both extension types

WEAVES: Benefits

Less hair manipulation of your natural hair
Style can last for 6-8 weeks with proper maintenance
More permanent and secure

WEAVES: Drawbacks

Harder to maintain your own hair underneath
Less style options as it’s a permanent (6 week) look
More expensive

VERDICT: Weaves are best for women who want a protective style that they don’t have to manipulate at all. Once it’s in, it’s in and with proper care, it will stay for almost 2 months. Keep in mind though, that you have a harder challenge with maintaining your scalp and your natural hair underneath since it is so permanent.

BEST FOR: seasonal hair changes, long term protective styling, giving natural hair a break

WIGS: Benefits
