Michelle Obama Lauryns GlamLife

Michelle Obama is among the celebrities and high-profile public figures who wear their natural hair over hair extensions. Mrs. Obama's hair weave is always on point because she has access to a home salon and 24-hour stylists.

When wearing natural hair, aka leave out, over hair extensions it is important to blend your hair so the weave matches your hair texture. Your natural hair must be bone straight to match the weave.

Mrs. Obama doesn't worry about sweating out her natural hair while dancing at Beyonce and JAY-Z concerts because she has a stylist on speed dial.

Below is an easy video tutorial by Lauryn's GlamLife for women who don't have Michelle Obama's coins.

FYI: here's a tip for those of you who have thinning hair due to hormonal imbalance, hypothyroidism, or PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), which causes an overproduction of male androgens Testosterone and DHEA-S.

Troublesome symptoms of hormonal imbalance caused by hypothyroidism or PCOS include cystic acne and hair shedding/hair loss.

Most women who suffer from these troublesome symptoms drink Spearmint tea to treat their symptoms.

Studies have shown that Spearmint tea improves the hormonal symptoms of PCOS, which helps to clear up bothersome cystic acne and grow your hair fuller and longer.

It is important to treat the hypothyroidism or PCOS before drinking Spearmint tea or it won't work.

You will notice a difference within days.

Any brand of Spearmint tea will work as long as it contains real spearmint leaves. If it doesn't smell like a pack of Doublemint gum, it's probably bootleg. You can buy Spearmint tea at any grocery store or health food store.

    You have a very well known hair guru that still to this DAY comes through and comments here on occassion. She is a Youtube legend. Yet you post I dont eem know who that girl is instead. I will watch. But if there was never an Ateya there would never even be a genre of women who do this. Shouts out to the GOAT hair Youtuber...Ateya.

    *leave Michelle alone.

  • Yoni7

    Ateya done gone off and got murried, chile. I'm so happy for her.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Why are black woman so afraid to show the world Africa? Stop putting them folks hair in ya head use what you was born with

  • FukkFolks2018

    I SAW! Im happy for her too. I love that girl like she my cousin or something

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What about the Iranian threats and the Michael Cohen tapes?

    Thanks for the blending video btw.

  • Ni Ni

    I can't do no weave, but I will be trying that spearmint tea ? for about a week or two at least, then it'll probably wind up in my cabinet with the rest of the herbal teas that didn't work?.

  • Coy little wink

    Umm...Leave out texture should match hair extension texture. It doesn't have to be bone straight unless that's the style objective

    I don't even wear extensions but I know that

  • EMILY POST

    Leave out with no perm.... and a straight weave that dont match her texture.... Alrighty :( Maybe in somebodies world this is a success...

  • EMILY POST

    You would think that would be common knowledge.

  • Coy little wink

    Maybe she is trolling us ?

  • AnonyMous

    Weave is yuck. I’ve never seen a woman that looks better due to weave. If you can’t look pretty with your own hair....

  • Candance

    Right... I have an entire shelf and I have yet to have a real result!!! SMH but my weaves do be cute ;)

  • cherrypie

    She did good on the video however there was alot of unneccessary talking. Just get to the point.... Not a fan of weave at all because the majority of the time it looks obviously fake. But I've been natural since Nov. 2017 and it is one of the best decisions that ive made. My hair is so much more healthier and I love that I can wear it either straight or naturally curly. The downside to natural hair is that it takes ALOT of work but I think its worth it. youtube helps alot if you are trying to go natural

  • Coy little wink

    Natural since 2014 and best hair decision. EVER!!

  • OvertheMississippi

    Ikr!

  • Ni Ni

    I'm going to youtube this afternoon to see if there is an easy way to detangle 4c hair without it taking hours or buying expensive products. I'm about ready to give up again and go back to a texture softener. I almost broke down crying last week trying to detangle, hence wig week for me.

  • HelloToni

    Thanks for the info on spearmint tea....I will try anything to help w/the cystic acne.

  • Ni Ni

    lol

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    This destroys your hair in the long run.

  • soldierwoman89

    I agree...I get sick of seeing women with all this fake hair down to their back!!! Give it a rest. And if you get mad at my comment - youre one of the chicks Im talking about. Period!

  • mona q

    Leave Michelle Obama out of it.

  • soldierwoman89

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PREACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Fire & Ice

    Back in the nineties a natural looking weave was a must. these chicks now days don't care if they look like they're wearing a helmet.

  • Yodel-Lay-SHe-Whooo

    Slow day I see.... Natural chick here. Only low heat blow dry for special events. Other than that, I’ll stick to my homemade essential oil blend and a little h2o! #edgesintact ?

  • Indies beauty

    Not watching.... But thanks for the tip. I don't have the conditions but I'll try it out. I have a sample of dried herbs from Marroco and I had no idea what to do with the spearment.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It really works! I messed up and forgot to order more boxes of spearmint tea. I'm fresh out. Now I'm looking at my hairline. ?

  • millz

    You have to try products... target offers samples sizes on the ethnic stuff. Condition condition condition moisturize moisturize moisturize like for real the best products I use are pretty cheap the Aussie brand garnier frutis I really like.

    Thanks for the info. Sandy Mae!! This is a natural, inexpensive remedy!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    So true YouTube is awesome for natural hair tips... I was like the last to go natural among my sisters and cousins and they helped me a lot and I would stay up all night watching vids... when I got my big chop years ago I was aggrevating everybody with my questions lol.. these days I am relying on good ole YT to help teach me how to retwist my sons new dreads so far so good :)

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    I have 4 A texture and I have to detangle in sections or I go mad... what helped me was getting a denman brush, a wide tooth comb, some good leave in conditioning for that "slip" and sectioning off my hair in small sections..my hair stay super dry i have to moisturize it every 2 days wet it and add leave in when I shower

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Spearmint tea worked for me. At first I was skeptical that it would clear up my cystic acne that plagued me for years. ? I was pleasantly surprised when my acne cleared up after a week or so. Spearmint tea also has the added benefit of protecting your hair follicles from DHT and DHEA-S so my hair grew thick and long. ?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    First off Im not taking advice from anyone who puts in a quick weave...its 2018 that shit should be illegal. Secondly the "advice" she is giving is so 2000....I've been doing leave out weaves before this child could say her first word. Third...The DAYS OF THE BABY HAIR SWOOPS IN THE FRONT ARE OVER!!! so please stop it looks crazy...And last but not least if ole girl up top keep burning her hair everyday for that shiny mess she will lose hair at the top of her head...

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Spearmint tea only works if you treat the root cause of your hair shedding or acne. It is not a miracle cure.'

    In my case, I take medicine for hypothyroidism and PCOS -- both of which causes acne and hair shedding.

    But I still had a problem with excess androgens DHT and DHEA-S in my blood. So the tea works great by naturally reducing the androgens so my hair can grow. ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're welcome hun.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I haven't seen Ateya on the blog in over a decade. But thank you for reminding me about her great tutorial videos!

    Edit: I scrolled through Ateya's videos and I didn't see any that specifically addresses blending natural hair with weave. Thx anyways.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    THANK YOU!!!

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Tell that to Burnese Burgos.....lmao.....She be swooping the shit out those edges......lol

  • Sdot33

    I'll stay all natural. Loathe weave.

  • Pamela

    Self hate

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    For real....I got my first weave at 16 and was hooked after that...for ten straight years I wore weave with a part on the side or the middle...I started to notice patches in my hair at the leave out spot around 2008 and stopped wearing them. I had to end up getting shots in my hair to stimulate growth due to the glue, sew and burning I was putting on my leave out. Neva again will a weave be in my head. Its all natural, lose twists or wig ova here...

  • Vegas1989

    I was wearing quick weaves in 1996 when I was in the Army....LOL..

  • Vegas1989

    I'm with you....All Natural

  • Shawty

    Looks good

  • SweetTEE

    You told NO LIES!! Little heffa leave out will be dry,brittle and broken off from that heat.. her ass aint natural forreal.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I have 4C hair and when I try to detangle I use the Organix Moroccan conditioner put it in a spray bottle with warm water and spray the sections while I am detangling and combing through...that conditioner works wonders on my curly (synthetic wigs) too...

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I am starting to see girls under 10-13 getting weaves and braids damaging their hair and scarring the side of their head

  • SweetTEE

    You have to do it in sections. I usually section my hair into 9 clips and detangle with leave in(my conditioner and water). Way easier to do under the water in the shower.

    Also, Girlllll you must check out the max hydration treatment. I've been doing it for a month on my 4c hair and babyyyyy my curls are poppin and my hair is NEVER dry.

  • Connie

    Mrs. Obama doesn’t worry about sweating out her natural hair while dancing at Beyonce and JAY-Z concerts
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The shade!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    For real back when California Love was poppin on the radio!! LOL

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    True but Bernice has a different grade of hair.... Im talking about those who swoop that 1 inch of hair they got in the front cause they done burnt off the rest of it from wearing weaves...I just seen a lil girl with a whole weave in her hair in target??? She was like 10 with bundles smh...

  • SweetTEE

    And I know this is an ethnic brand...but tresemme botanical conditioner is BOMB for $5.00. All natural ingredients. I use it as my cowash and leave in.

    Go to msdeekay.com...she has a break down of products for our hair type and I haven't had a bad experience yet.

  • SweetTEE

    Wtf can't she just get natural weave? I'm not doing all that with my natural hair.

  • SweetTEE

    I know you see all these black women walking around with their natural hair just as much- if not more than with weave. It's 2018, the majority of us don't have time for that self hate mess, we trying to love ourselves.

  • Miss Thang

    how is that "shade"?

  • Miss Thang

    the color of Michelle's leave out doesn't even halfway match the weave though...

  • SweetTEE

    Try youtubing max hydration. Your type 4 hair doesnt hold moisture because of the cuticle. Conditioner only last in our hair for 3 days, however it usually just sits on top of our hair and isnt absorbed into the scalp.

  • Miss Thang

    my niece is 6 and just got her first weave :'(

  • xenaD

    6?... my children are so childish lol I can’t imagine my daughter pulling off a weave! What in the hell tho? These babies are growing up so fast

  • Miss Thang

    Me too... I've gotten over the whole "trying to force my hair to look a different texture than it actually is" phase of the "natural hair journey". My hair is what it is and i love it just the way it is.

  • xenaD

    I feel like I have been missing out lol... I wore weaves for a good 3 year total in my entire teen/adult life
    But I must say I’m thinking of getting a cute weave for back to school

  • Candance

    I want some tea to get rid of this c section belly i got lol

  • Connie

    Michelle has nothing important to do but party. That's how I received it

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Well I have saw more women with naturals and at the same time I have saw a large increase of very young girls with weaves.... I am also pretty sure a lot more weaves are being bought that 25 years ago...

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    Thank you love let me write this down I need all the info I can get for this dry hair

  • BrownIsBack

    Soooo um maybe I need to read the whole thing but is this saying Mo's weave looks natural because.....nevermind

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Great tips. Hair is not absorbent, so treat dry hair from the inside by drinking plenty of water and taking hair vitamins.

  • the guest

    Truth is real hair is not one color. I find that weaves that are all one perfect color look most unnatural. I also think weaves look best as an enhancement on women who already have hair of their own like Mrs. Obama. She probably has four or five tracks the most and mostly her own hair out.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    Thank you :) I will def go buy some hair vitamins this weekend I drink lots of water and green tea but I need to get those vitamins for sure

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Green tea works well to reduce the hormones that promote body fat. Make sure it's a high quality green tea.

  • AveIvy

    Okay, so it's not just me cause I was like "Is this shade".

  • AveIvy

    I took it as, Michelle sweated out her hair and it actually did not blend with her weave/wig. A backhanded compliment.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Hair is hydrated from the inside, not the outside. Slapping grease and oils on hair is pointless. When you drink water, vital body organs are hydrated before hair and skin. That's why doctors recommend drinking 8-10 glasses of water per day.

  • MsPam

    Let them be childish, it means you’re a good parent.

  • SweetTEE

    I got that part Auntie!! But according to hair professionals, you can moisturize your hair with water and natural conditioner

  • SweetTEE

    No problem, I had to read a lot of books and do a lot of research bc I got tired of my hair being dry and looking like a brillo pad lol

  • SweetTEE

    ok.. I'm also certain a lot more weaves are used today, however they are purchased and worn by all races in 2018. White girls at my corporate job wear more weave than the black girls if you don't count braids.

  • MsPam

    Can you drink if you don’t have the symptoms?! I just want to grow my longer.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    And girl you know what why when I moved from Ga to Cali I did my head for 3 years then decided to "trust" a stylist here with my hair smh she should have known exactly what you just told me but instead she was like you need some new conditioner cause what you are using just sits on your hair.. long story short I got heat damage had to cut half my hair off and now it has grown back again so no more new stylist ill do my own dang hair and continue to learn about it in the process lol

  • Black4life

    After my so-called butcher...oops I meant beautician left me saying, "Weezy, Weezy," George Jefferson I loc'd my hair. This was the best decision, its growing back and no more products, combs, brushes. Its just hair...life lessons.

  • Solstice

    Yes this! I’ll do a twist out and style it how I like but 2 hours later, my hair will just do whatever the hell it wants! ? I just let it be girl ? smh

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I hear that a lot but I have had plenty intimate relationships and job relationships and I have never ran into a white chick that wear weave unless she is an entertainer of various sorts of on tv it’s very rare for the avg white women to wear a weave

    What is the one swoop piece for?..Could it possibly be parted in the middle and gel it down on both sides, INSTEAD of the one swooped piece or is that the "thing", the "style"..just asking for a friend.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Now I understand why ALL the women hated Kenya Moore on RHOA. Because she has naturally long vivacious hair with no weaves or extensions needed.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    Black Chyna has long hair almost sitting on it... I think for some women its not the "need" for a weave it is some wear it as a protective style.. but everyone does not know how to properly protect their hair so they have problems... Kenya has long natural hair, Gabrielle Union a lot of black women who wear weaves do...

  • KcoolMuziq

    Gabby recently cut her hair to a short bob and I don't like it AT ALL.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    She has a beautiful face for anything I haven't seen her new cut yet but I bet it is pretty on her.. some women have that face they can pull almost anything off ya know

  • KcoolMuziq

    Also Sanaa Lathan(whom I worked with) had BEAUTIFUL long hair and she cut it ALL off for a role and I HATE IT!
    I feel when black women have naturally long hair they should never cut it.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    I don't like short hair either.. its my preference for long hair lol my mom she always cut her hair I be like ma let it grow it grows super fast and as fast as she cuts it it is back again...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Whew chile the tension alopecia...

  • dru and neil

    This is true. Folks would be surprised how many black women hate one another because of hair length and texture. My mother used to tell me stories about other little black girls pulling her long ponytails in school. So she would tuck them into buns as tightly as she could so girls would not bully her as much.

  • DETROITTOATL

    Me too. I take levrothoxine. But I will for sure be getting some spearmint tea.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    HOW do you know Mrs. O has a stylist on speed dial? :) LMAO

  • SweetTEE

    You are incorrect lol. You just don't expect there to be weave..just bc the white women you may sleep with don't wear weave (while yall screwing) doesnt mean they don't. Go to youtube and search weave white women.. all average. They usually do clip ins or sew ins.

  • SweetTEE

    That's the way to go. I'm finding now that stylist do just that, style. Most know nothing about how to really care for your hair unless you visit a salon specializing in natural hair. Youtube and books have been my God send..bc girl people DO NOT know how to care for type 4 hair.

  • 9 Mind

    Here for the shadiness....

  • Fire & Ice

    Our stories are almost similar. My first weave was at 15 but I didn't have to end up getting scalp shots. I think when you get a weave very young it's very addicting and causes hair damage. I've been weave free sevevn years now and my hair has thanked me. Same here...not going back down that road.

    Yeh ok every excuse....and even if they do wear weave you got black women out here killing for weave and stealing weave out of stores and doing all kinds of fraud to get some hair that looks nothing like there natural hair...At least the few white women that get it are not running away from there natural looks

  • the guest

    Speak!!!!

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • Sha

    Kenya wears weave, she didn't at the beginning but she does now. that being said, she does have long hair, so look again people, especially when they do the reunion shows.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Just remember that hair is not absorbent like a sponge. So anything you put on your hair is going to sit there and shine for a few days. In no time you will have product buildup on your hair and it will look dull. The best remedy for hair dryness is drinking lots of water. Doctors recommend 8-10 glasses a day.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    If you don't have any symptoms, spearmint tea won't grow your hair. Spearmint tea works by reducing excess male androgens in the blood that attacks hair follicles, causing shedding and hair loss. The tea allows the hair to grow back full and long. ??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Spearmint really works! I was skeptical at first, but now I'm sold on it. ??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Why? This post is positive.

  • KcoolMuziq

  • cusp_23

    I didn’t even know what my natural texture was until I was 24. I kept cutting my hair cause I didn’t realize my roots were naturally straight (I kept mistaking the straight roots for a relaxer that wasn’t growing out lol). But, 10 years natural and I love the kinks, coils, and curls... I rarely flat iron or wear straight ?????

  • Rhondalousey

    I used to do this as well, this article is nothing new. I did this for years before i went natural. I wouldn't wear weave no other way. I died my hair whatever color the weave was and it looked nice. Most people thought it was mine lol.

  • Kimberly King

    Mhmmmm nah. I’m natural myself but I can’t fathom putting heat on my hair. My hair is naturally jet black. I want to dye it for my natural hair anniversary (in November) but I’m so hesitant !

    Suave conditioner works wonders at detangling. I discovered that by accident when I was out of the expensive stuff and really needed to detangle. I was pleasantly surprised. Just get a water bottle
    spray each section with water but don't drench it and work the suave in. It works better than everything else I've tried, even when my hair was really tangled up, and it's under $3.

  • Ni Ni

    I forgot about suave, think i have some left from way back; It does work well. Water only tangles it more. But, i will revisit the suave.

  • Ni Ni

    I will put the tresemme on my list. I don't have the patience for Ms.Dee's method, lol.

  • Ang

    Have you tried putting warm or hot water in a spray bottle and spraying one section at a time just enough to get it wet enough to work the conditioner through? My hair can get matted if I don't detangle often enough. I've found that all conditioners I use to detangle work best after I've let some warm water sit on my hair a minute. It softens your hair and you can work the knots out a little even before you use the products.

  • Ni Ni

    I haven't tried that, but i will. It's mainly one side of the back of my head is where its very coily & tangles easy.

  • SweetTEE

    Girl... it took some patience to get the method down without losing my mind. I got a little routine now. If anything, I make sure I always deep condition or steam

  • SweetTEE

    It's not an excuse, its reality. I just prefer that we be honest and work on things before we put other races on a pedestal. Acknowledge the positive the same way you do the negative...that's being honest. By the way, white women do a lot to do look more "ethnic". Those white women you sleep with get tans? Ok.

  • Ang

    Good luck

    correct, she doesn't have to, none of us do. We just want a different look, that all it really is.
