    I had a weave for about a year and a half. It did look good, but was really expensive and really hard to look after. You need to get them tightened every couple of week and it pulled out a lot of my hair. I had to remove it after such a long time and my already thin hair was much thinner afterwards!

    hmm if you go on youtube you should be able to find loads of videos on how to maintain them and look after it. I'm sure you should be able to find a decent hairdresser who also does weaves. You could try looking up hairdressers in your area and then asking them about it..possibly they might even let you come in to see someone who is having the weave done and then you can see for yourself if you would like it ?

    An Afro-Caribbean hair salon would be a good bet,have seen quite a few White women choosing to have their weave done there.
    The week before Christmas while having my eyebrows threaded I complimented a woman who was having a Brazilian 18 inch weave sewn in,to be fair looked a Lot more realistic than usual:-)

    I used to have clip in extensions that were real hair, I dyed them and my hair exactly the same colour and they blended in perfectly, also depends on the texture and layering of the extensions. I wouldn't recommend a weave as it will thin out and damage your hair and is only really a short term option

    You shouldn't have had a weave in for that long, that's why your hair thinned

    Yeah, that's a terribly long time. The maximum is three months I think and even then a lot of people will remove it after a month and a half to prevent hair damage. I'd change hairdressers if I were you as that's horrendous practice.
