Hair Weaves Tangle Self-Image for Black Women by Malena Amusa

This past winter, I noticed something very unsettling while I was visiting my family in St. Louis. Almost all the black women I encountered were sporting lavishly long hair weaves, fake locks that can add length and volume after being sewed or glued to the scalp. Weaves come in straight, curly and kinky textures. But most black women with weaves wear them to extend and straighten the appearance of their naturally coiled and nappy hair.
