I wore weave during my transitioning. I don't like wearing braids because my sides are the weakest part of my hair. So, they have a tendency to fall out from too much manipulation. I usually keep my weaves in from 3,4,5 months at a time. I am able to achieve such a lenghty period of time through thorough cleansing and treatment of my exposed hair and also weaved hair.

I posted a few examples of my weaves in my Fotki.
