  1. Hi. Just a quick question. If you are wearing weave as a protective style for a year without perming , how do you protect your hair from breakage due to the different textures? Also, is it a good idea to perm your hair after six months to help stop breakage?

    1. Hi Anon, to stop breakage I reduce heat usage. Work with two textures is definitely challenging but I only leave a little leave out hair so it works fine for me. Perming hair after 6 months may work for someone who is not transitioning because transitioning involves no relaxer x
