Just like ALL women of ALL colours, hair is an intricate part of who we are and is styled as such. Women around the world spend a LOT of money on colours, cuts, weaves, perms, extensions, braids, and wigs.
You could ask a hundred women why they wear their hair the way they do and receive a hundred different responses. Half of the responses would probably change based on the day and style. But I’m not going to delve too far into any controversy surrounding black hair. It’s been done time and again and frankly it’s not what this is all about. What it IS all about is allowing yourself to play, experiment, and have fun!
So… why do I wear wigs?
To be totally honest with you it was my babies Morggan and Kamarane who encouraged me to wear wigs and change my look. Some years ago I gave it a try but products and techniques now are so advanced it’s a breeze.
My own virgin hair is well maintained, healthy and passed shoulder length, and it’s great. I wore weaves for years leaving a little of my own hair out but that area became weak due to the straightening and use of chemicals, so the knowledge of not using chemicals has given me so much more peace of mind.
Wigs give so much versatility and I love changing up my hair because I can and it’s fun having a go at changing your look on a daily basis.

Some days I want to look sleek and on fleek, especially when I’m going to a premiere or out on the town.
