“I big chopped…now what?!?!”  Those are usually the first words out of  your mouth after you big chop. Big Chop is the process of cutting off the relaxed or permed ends of one’s hair when one is transitioning from chemically processed hair to natural hair. Many new naturals are excited, yet frustrated with their hair after they BC. During those first 6-8 months your curl pattern and texture may change several times. One of the biggest obstacles to overcome in the beginning is dryness. You might even ask yourself, “What in the world happened to my hair… it’s like the Sahara Desert!”.

Are Hair Extensions Ripping Out Your Hair?

February 20th, 2013

So many times I am asked if hair extensions help to grow your hair or rip it out. One of my clients asked this question; I have been applying sewn in hair extensions to help me to grow out my hair longer. It never fails that every time I take out my sewn in hair extensions, I lose a lot of hair. It looks like my hair is breaking. What am I doing wrong?

On average a person sheds 100-150 strands of hair a day. It can appear that you are losing a lot of hair when you are taking out your cornrows. While your hair is cornrowed (underneath the hair extensions) the shedding hair isn’t able to escape the the scalp and fall free as it normally would. So when you un-braid the cornrows, all of that hair sheds at once. Rest assured unless you see bald spots or you have cut your natural hair while cutting out the hair extensions, you are probably not “losing your hair”.

Please watch the video above for the best way to remove your hair extensions and save your hair.
