Cynthia Bailey announced last week that she is giving her hair a “weave break.” She posted this photo with the caption;
Taking a much needed weave break! I try to do this every 3 months but I am usually too busy working & traveling to commit. This is what my hair looks like right now. As you can see it is growing but my leave out (WHICH IS DYED BLOND TO BLEND IN WITH MY BLOND EXTENSIONS) & edges are a little stressed damaged. I just washed, conditioned & put it in 2 ponytails. AirDry not blow dry! I love changing my hair up & weaves and wigs are the quickest ways to get different looks. However, I always want to make sure my natural hair is strong & healthy. I highly suggest taking a weave break ladies! Even if it’s only for a couple of weeks. I’m going to try to do 2 months. Found some great wigs for work that I can take off at night to get me thru.
The supermodel is known for sporting larger than life wigs and weaves, but in a statement posted her to Instagram account she admits that her leave out and edges are in need of some TLC. While weaves can be great for protective styling, Bailey is absoutely correct in her assertion that a weave break is necessary to maintain the health of one’s natural mane.
