So as I mentioned in my last post, I’m on a sort of hair journey since 1) I accidentally chopped off the back of my hair, 2) I can’t figure out what to do with my hair next, and 3) I’m getting really tired of dealing with my natural hair in all honestly (more on this another time). As a result, I’ve decided to go on a protective styling break indefinitely. I kind of started doing that (or preparing myself to at least) back in December/January by installing crochet braids:
BUT, these came after I started playing around with wigs! You heard it right…I said wigs. Now, in this day and age, the mention of “wig” shouldn’t instill fear in you. The kind of fear that would ripple over your body when you saw your grandma extract the furry beasts she interchanged every Sunday for church. The shiny, glossy helmets of plastic that made eyebrows everywhere raise. These days, wigs are a go to for many, and they look pretty damn good. If you don’t believe me, take a look below:
See that? Wig. By Tokyo Stylez. Magic. Boom. If you don’t believe me, look at that one that many of you seem to love. The younger Jenner with the fish lips. But I digress…
While I would love to invest in one of those, or even another virgin hair one, right now my college sized pockets are keeping me on synthetic lace fronts. Now, normally this would sound like a bad idea, but I think I’ve been pretty lucky so far. I’ve decided that personally, I’m going to stick with curly or kinky hair since I love big hair. So, my first “experiment” was from Sensationnel, and her name was/is “Evelyn”
Sensationnel Synthetic Lace Front Wig Empress Edge L Part
I purchased her in a colour 4, and this is what she looked like on me after some adjusting:
This is a really nice one, I’m just not a fan of the part, even after fixing it. Or the way the top of the hair lays. Also, the hair was dense, so it made me really hot. This is why I decided to get myself another curly one. This time, it is from the brand “It’s A Wig” and her name is…well, its..I don’t like this name so this won’t be a she…but anyway, it’s name is “Camera” and it looks like this:
After trying it on and fluffing it out, I think I’m going to make this my default (sorry Evelyn). I like that there’s no visible part on this and it looks a lot more natural to me. Plus the hair is extremely soft, light, and it doesn’t seem to tangle easily. I’ll do an individual post about this at some point.
I also got another one from Isis Collection: RCP717 Afro Kinky 18″
I know I’m going to have to do something with this one, as I’ve purchased it before but didn’t like the colour. Once it’s manipulated, it looks really beautiful and natural. But again, it takes some playing around with.
Well, that’s it for now. Just sharing some hair rants!
Have any of you worn wigs? Any tips for me?
