On May 26, Razor Chic of Atlanta Salon post­ed a video of a beau­ti­ful 23-year-old black wom­an who has suf­fered major hair loss due to braids and sew-ins.  What makes this sit­u­a­tion so unique is that hair loss this sev­ere is rarely seen on wom­en so young.  The client reveals that she has been wear­ing sew-ins since high school while not allow­ing her hair to “breathe”.  When her hair is not braid­ed up, she will wear wigs. She has been doing this for almost five years.

The video was shot by a styl­ist and is meant to be a warn­ing again­st wear­ing weaves non­stop.  Here is a por­tion of the cap­tion from the video.

I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME CLIENTS ARE CHASING STYLES AND STYLIST ARE CHASING THE DOLLAR AND AIN’T NOBODY LISTENING TO THE HAIR. THIS HAS TO STOP?!!!! I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO USE MY PLATFORM TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THESE WOMEN ARE COMING FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TO SIT IN MY CHAIR CAUSE THEY WANT OUT AND TIRED. BUT CANT FIND ANYONE WHO CAN TAKE CARE OF THEIR REALHAIR IF U ONLY KNEW HOW MANY TEARS ARE SHED IN MY CHAIR CAUSE OF THE MISTAKES THEY MADE CHASING STYLES AND CONVENIENCE. WHERE IN THE HELL IS ALL THE REAL STYLIST THAT KNOW HAIR????

After this video, the Razor Chic of Atlanta Salon styl­ist gave the wom­an a free cut and style to boost her con­fi­dence while her hair and scalp return to a healthy state.  No extra hair was added.

The beau­ty of black hair styling is its ver­sa­til­i­ty. There are so many looks you can achieve with black hair — whether on its own or with the use of add-ins. How­ev­er it’s crit­i­cal that in the mid­st of the exper­i­men­ta­tion our nat­u­ral strands remain healthy and cared for.

Poor wom­an. I just hope her hair is able to recov­er and that the dam­age that has been done all those years isn’t per­ma­nent.

Elaina

So you’re say­ing this kind of dam­age is nor­mal?

Siramad Backwards

Yeah if your into weave or, braids heav­i­ly. It’s about not let­ting your hair rest.

Siramad Backwards

To an extent…but every ones dif­fer­ent. Weaves have nev­er helped me grow my hair. Only going nat­u­ral.

In tears after watch­ing this.….. But it will get bet­ter for her with the right hair care and patience
