I have said it before that I see nothing wrong with perming, wigs, weaves, braiding etc. However, be careful ladies. That delicate hair that lines the nape of the head breaks quickly and hardly grows back. I have had occasion to “African Queen” myself more than twice just to give those hairs a break and let em grow back without pulling (Ghana weaving is the worst culprit, I do it sparingly). Not everybody has the guts to shave off everything and start from scratch though and this is the damage that could occur. Not pretty!
