Just thought I would check in with you all and say, “how you doing?” *Wendy Williams voice*.
Of late I have been wearing a lot of wigs. I have wigs for working out. Wigs for performing domestic chores. Wigs for running errands etc etc.
Basically I have a wig for anything that you can think of.
Well now that I am a new mum I don’t have the time or the energy to sit around for hours whilst I braid my hair or install a weave. The reality is that it will take ages as I will have to stop start, stop start as I cater to baby girl. Nobody has got time for that. But as my husband says, “tales of your incompetence don’t interest me”. Which is immediate met with an eye roll from me.
Naturally I still want to look fly for my hubby even with his snide comments. Side eye. Some time ago I purchased a whole gang of wigs from Hair Sisters. Not really sure what inspired me but I got really into it.
Each week I wash, condition and moisturize my natural hair. I comb out my Afro puff puff and proceed to do 8-10 corn rows depending on how I be feeling on that day. Once done each brand new morning I apply my wig cap and carefully place my chosen wig.
Well on this particular day I was feeling my short and sassy look. Do you feel like a different hair style brings out a different side of your personality? Me too…
What had happened was I was taking out some laundry and the sun rays were shinning just right. Naturally I reached into my back pocket grabbed my iPhone and started snapping. I had a feeling that something good had to come out of this.
