Try saying that 3 times fast…lol. This week, well actually the past few weeks I’ve been rocking my wigs. My hair goes through phases and sometimes it gets mad at me. Its dry, unmanageable, my curls are more undefined that usual, the list goes on and on. This usually happens when I step up my workout routine, which I have been doing for the past few weeks. I think its a combo of the chlorine and the sun. When my hair starts acting up I go into protective styling mode. I wash and deep condition my hair and I put it in cornrows. I make sure to moisturize it twice a day and oil my scalp every night. My cornrows are too much of a hot mess (and not to mention way out of style) to wear in public, so I rock my wigs over them. I usually leave a bit of hair out in the front so I can style it to blend with whatever wig I’m wearing that day.
Here are the wigs I’ve been rocking for the past 3 weeks.
Here is the tutorial I did on how I styled this wig here
This is a shorter version of the same wig I did a tutorial on here
I’m working on a straight wig right now, but it still looks a bit to wiggy….I’ve worn it a few times with a scarf over the top of the wig and my edges pulled back, but its not picture ready yet. To give you a little preview, here is a shot of it from the back.
Wearing your hair in cornrows is a great protective style that helps you retain length because you are decreasing the daily manipulation, breakage and stress on your hair from styling, heat, combs and brushes. Wearing wigs is a GREAT hair solution for sistas (natural, relaxed or transitioning) who workout and don’t want to be bothered with doing their hair. When I go to the gym, I take my wig off, throw on a scarf or a baseball cap, workout, then after I workout I spray my hair down with a leave in or a moisturizing spray and I throw my wig back on. It takes less than 5 minutes. And the other great thing about it is that you can change your hair on a whim, with little effort…I LOVE that.
