For me, if I wear a wig or any protective hairstyle, I want it to blend with my style and the authentic me as possible. I don’t like a hairstyle that overtakes my personality to create another being altogether. That’s my view on hairstyles and make-up. I want to remain me. I have always liked braids and twists because they allow a lot of me being African to still be happening while I take a break to everyday hair styling. But when these curly synthetic hair that looks like my type of hair, I was game. This year, instead of doing protective styles that take long to do and undo, I’ve like really fallen for wigs and I am loving the journey so far.
I’ve been asked so many times whilst wearing this wig if it’s my hair and I’m sure it confuses a lot of people because of the way I blend in my natural hair with the wig. So besides showing you how I trimmed it to get rid of tangles and spruce it up a bit because it’s getting old and frizzy, I also show you my trick to wearing a curly wig and have people confuse it with my natural hair. Ey, I wish my hair was this full. In any case, I hope you will enjoy the video and please thumbs up and share it with friends and whoever you think may benefit from it. Love, peace and blessings!
(Wig supplied by my friend and sister in the UK. Thanks Sahwira. You can see wig being put to very good use!)
