I’ve been toying with the idea of wiggin’ it for a while. As I continue on my natural journey, I know styling will become a challenge. I’ve already written about some of my hair issues, and it’s only been three months post relaxer. I have a long way to go before my hair is completely natural. So, I’ve been researching protective styling options. This weekend I finally made the decision to go in for a wig fitting.
A friend from work told me about True Indian Hair . I met with the owner, Karen Mitchell, for a consultation. I know absolutely nothing about how to choose the right wig, and Ms. Mitchell put me right at ease. The first thing I noticed was her sweet demeanor. She certainly has a knack for making people feel comfortable, and also knows her stuff. Ms. Mitchell recommended different options, and gave me tips on how to style my new do. She said that each wig should last six months. But based on the soft texture, I wouldn’t be surprised if it lasts much longer than that.
Since I’ll be transitioning, a wig will make things easier. I won’t have to choose between working out and keeping my hair TV ready. As you know, my job doesn’t offer much flexibility when it comes to my hair. The plan is to wig it as I transition.
Here are some wigs I tried on. Which one do you like best? Keep in mind that I’ll be cutting and styling the wig similar to the way I normally wear my hair. So far, my hubby likes the first one the best. Please tell me your pick in the comments section below.
Stay tuned later this week to see the final look.
