Wigging it!

This Afro wig?? YES!
I don't know where to start with this. My fro wig gave me an inspiration to write this post. And yes to those whom I may have not admitted that it is a wig please don't give me a stare down.

So yeah that is a wig that I made myself with Marley hair and a wig net, got a tutorial from YouTube, just like almost every other thing I do to my hair and took to the challenge.

I received a lot of compliments with this unit, a lot of people thought it was my actual hair(I will give props to the Marley hair for that) and I would have to sadly say 'no it's not I got my hair done' -_-. I bought the Marley hair in Bellville for those who live in Cape Town, I bought this hair because I wanted a match with my actual hair. The wig only lasted me 2 weeks because I don't know how to style or take care of the hair, I am sorry I don't have pictures of week 2 that is when I did a braid out on it , I was not impressed with it though. 
When I wore the wig I completely covered my hair and had no leave outs except for showing a bit of my hairline on the part. Another thing I loved about this is that my hair and scalp could still breath.

I tried to
style it
My second wig I bought on BidOrBuy, my first official wig so to speak. It is my run to when I am lazy to style my hair over the weekend and at the moment it is hiding my hair from the winter. It gives me a Caucasian look if I am allowed to say that. I am looking for ways to give it curls but at the same time I am scared to ruin it, I found it at a fairly cheap price(R 150). 
What I have noticed with this one is that it takes time for this type of wigs to take a shape of your head and for you to grow into it and you learn to style it according to your preference with time.

I have always been afraid to wear a wig because it would be assumed that it is only for grandmas who love things and still want to look grand, this is according to my experience. Or it is also assumed that you only get a wig when you have hair problems(balding,illness, etc). I think my next one will be a pixie cut ,short hairstyles suit me better.

Becky with good
hair lol
My pro about wearing wigs is that you get to co-wash your hair during the week and better for those who are on a w-o-w method. I am trying to incorporate that in my "routine". It is also easy to moisturise your hair everyday because you have full access to it.

What do you think about wigs? Please give some advice on how to take care of the Marley hair.

Until the next post, God bless...
