Is adding weave/extensions still considered natural hair? I struggled with the thought of adding extensions in my hair for my vacation. I haven’t had extensions in my hair in years and I thought if I added them in I would be a hypocrite. I did some research and was convinced that getting my braids with extensions is a form of protective styling. It’s so easy to maintain on this trip! I am happy with my decision and I no longer feel guilty for getting my extensions. I’m loving this temporary look and my natural hair is still healthy!
