I will be honest, I was one of those women who did not like to wear fake hair. I would go into the beauty supply store, try on a wig, and look utterly ridiculous. But since I went natural a few years ago my hair has been at a standstill. It simply will not grow as fast as I would like. Due to the manipulation of my hair being natural I get a lot of breakage and it is not conducive for growing my hair out. Not to mention I would be lying if I said I did not miss certain straight styles. I could always straighten my hair, but too much heat on natural hair will only intensify the problem that I have with damaged hair. And so, I try wigs.
I will be honest I look at people’s wigs sometimes and wonder “what the heck is happening there?” I really wanted the wig I had to look natural and fit me properly. Therefore the only solution that I had was to actually make a wig myself. I watched a couples of YouTube videos and I pretty much felt I was an expert. I figure this is my only a way to play with different hair styles, lengths, and to be able to protect my hair from over manipulation so that it can grow. Here are the two wigs that I mad so far.
