Weaves are always and forever will be controversial. You have those people that stand by them, prefer them, spend money on them and make them look good. You have another group who would rather die than wear anything else on their head and make them look bad (imagine some long blond tracks showing rats nest of a weave). I often go to an event where someone with a weave quickly confesses to me that they are ‘Natural underneath’ or they wear this to ‘protect their hair’. Then you have those weave haters that cannot stand them yet you know they must have worn one in the past. Trust me you even have men in on the subject, I literally have heard one black guy say to me that he prefers a European woman explaining that why would he date someone with a weave? He might as well get someone with the real thing (insert annoyed frown here).
So what if you could have a weave that looked like your natural hair?
Charal Taylor is the co-founder of Beauty Masterpiece a Fashion and Beauty Company based in London. She has been natural for almost three years. A few weeks ago the company just launched a Natural Hair Weave Line which includes; Closures, clip-in weaves and clip-in closures. These products come in textures ranging from 4a-4c.
Charal says “As a natural I understand the importance of protective styling and its essential benefit in ensuring that we achieve length with minimum breakage. I have been protective styling for the last two year with braids and buns. However whenever my braids were in I couldn’t wash my hair the way i wanted to or enjoy my curls. That to me seemed like a waste since I love being natural and I love my texture. The problem was that there seemed to be no weave or clip-in hair options for my texture in the UK.
So I decided to create a line which catered to textures between 4a and 4c. My natural hair line offers the versatility of colouring, straightening and manipulating your hair on a daily basis without affecting the health of your own hair. As a bonus this line offers newly naturals a chance to experience what it will be like to be natural”
