I know your pain. I suffered from some breakage in the middle of my head and I’m just now recovering. I can’t estimate how long it’ll take for your hair to grow back. I hope that it takes about 6-9 months with consistent care. Keep your hair moisturized and in protective styles and you should be fine. Good luck!
Girl, I’m sure you’ll look fabulous tomorrow. Don’t worry what others say, their opinions don’t pay your bills and they never will. Have a great day tomorrow and good luck with that wash n go, unfortunately they never work out for me. Lol.
Honestly, a blonde sew in would be the safest way to achieve the color. Bleaching any hair can be risky but African American hair is even more susceptible to breakage. You’d have to work extra hard to keep your hair moisturized… Good luck and let me know what you decide!

Have a great one!
First off, thanks a bunch for reading the blog and I appreciate you reaching out to me for assistance. I know exactly how you feel. I remember when I first started experimenting with natural styles… It was struggle galore! Hopefully my suggestions help make the transition easier for you.
Wearing weave doesn’t mean your hair isn’t natural, in fact it’s a pretty good protective style as long as you have them installed properly. I believe the only way to be comfortable styling your hair and letting it be free is to take the Nike approach. Just do it!
I’m not sure how long your hair is, but I’d suggest removing the weave and consider testing out some products. Try twist outs, braid outs and bantu knot outs and do pin up hairstyles until you’ve had enough growth to feel comfortable wearing it out. You can even do different styles with twists and that’d be super cute as well. On the other hand, if your hair is short or still has relaxed ends that you need to get rid of then you should spend a little money getting it professionally cut just to start you off on your natural journey. I know you’re in college and spending money isn’t always easy, but one visit will be well worth it especially if the stylist hooks you up with a dope cut. (I’ve been loving tapered cuts lately…)
Hope this helps!
