After careful consideration and convincing, I have decided to try protective styling with out weave extensions. For those that don’t know I have a skin condition known as psoriasis which cause your skin to be dry, irritated, peal, and blister. I have been able to control it very well but this past year it has seems to have gotten out of control. I noticed I was having more frequent outbreaks and after thinking and discussing it with my mother we concluded that it may be the weave. Before going natural I had braids 3 times over the course of 10 years. With protective styling constantly and wearing weave more frequently my skin took a turn. My coconut butter lotion has been a huge help but I am going to try weaveless protective styling for 6 months to see if there is a difference.
