She captioned the image:


Taking a much needed weave break! I try to do this every 3 months but I am usually too busy working & traveling to commit. This is what my hair looks like right now. As you can see it is growing but my leave out (WHICH IS DYED BLOND TO BLEND IN WITH MY BLOND EXTENSIONS) & edges are a little stressed damaged. I just washed, conditioned & put it in 2 ponytails. AirDry not blow dry! I love changing my hair up & weaves and wigs are the quickest ways to get different looks. However, I always want to make sure my natural hair is strong & healthy. I highly suggest taking a weave break ladies! Even if it’s only for a couple of weeks. I’m going to try to do 2 months. Found some great wigs for work that I can take off at night to get me thru💋Just wanted to share😘The hair struggle is real💚#hairqueen#hairfinity

We love how fearless Bailey continues to be with her hair choices and her honesty about the struggle to keep our natural tresses healthy and strong. And, while she’s ditched sew-ins and other extensions for the time being, she hasn’t stopped rocking some seriously fab wigs.
