Many years ago, I did suffer from hair loss due to wearing a weave. When you get a sew-in type weave, the stylist will braid up your hair and then sew the wefts of weave onto the braid tracks. Well, if the braids are done too tightly, then it can result is hair breakage and hair loss.
I went to a hair salon about 10 years, ago to get a sew-in by my stylist. During the process, I kept telling the hair stylist that she was braiding my hair way too tight. I mean, it was really painful. At first she made excuses, like the weave is not going to last long, etc. Then, she said “Okay” and let up some. But, the end result was that the damage was already done. I looked Asian after this woman finished the hair style. I couldn’t lay down to sleep without feeling that tension and pain on my scalp. And, I had too much pride to go and remove the style after spending so much time and money in the salon (Ah... foolish pride).
Every time I looked at my hair in the mirror, I whimpered like a kid! That experience made me swear off getting weaves and cornrows. Thankfully, the hair loss was not permanent and the hair grew back.
