SWITCH WIG, MAKE HIM FEEL LIKE HE CHEATIN’

Wigs have been around since the late 17th century. As a black woman that has beautiful kinky coily curly hair, I can say that wigs serve many purposes. I for one do like to switch up my hairstyles whenever I’m in the mood and wigs are a great essential for that. Just don’t forget to take care of your beautiful natural hair under the cap. Over the last 2-3 years, my wig collection has grown expeditiously.

If it were up to me and not my bank account, I would have a room full of wigs named after my favorite celebrities. From Cardi B to Viola Davis, wigs have become a mainstay for boss women not only because of their convenience but also for their undeniable flair. If you want to try a new style or color, you can always rock a wig to try it out before making a permanent decision.

In the past few years, the negative connotation with wigs has been replaced with that of opulence and class. Back in the day, wearing a wig was seen as a way to go undercover or as a hair loss solution. While you can keep those on the list of pros of rocking a wig, they offer so much more in this day and age.

Before even jumping into the wigs I bought from HerGivenHair.com, let us talk about how it is important to start with a good quality wig. As far as human hair wigs go, they do tend to look extremely natural however, they can also run you a few hundred dollars (at least). If money is tight, some synthetic ones are much cheaper and are pretty impressive on the appearance tip too. If you opt for a monofilament wig, they do look like the hair from your wig is growing from your scalp while a hand-tied is less dense and also looks more natural than machine-wefted or stitched wigs. Just make sure to keep in mind that the less money you spend on a synthetic wig, the less likely you’ll be able to use heat styling tools (because they will melt the hair). Also, please avoid wigs that have that crescent moon type of hairline; the more natural the hairline the better.

If you opt to go to an actual beauty supply store, the customer service agents there should be able to assist you with finding a wig that best fits your hair and personal style. But if you’d prefer to order a wig online, there are plenty of naturalista pros out in the YouTube world who can totally help you out. Some videos worth checking out are located here, here, here and here.

I understand that finding the right wig for you can sometimes be a challenge. Not every hair brand is trustworthy and not every Instagram Influencer/model is trustworthy. Sometimes they only care about the quick money they can make. BeautyLeeBar for one isn’t going to mention a product if the quality and quantity are not up to par. I have been wearing braids for a couple of months now and I am itching to rock a wig again.

I say all of this because I am admitting to being influenced by the beautiful Afro Latina Amara La Negra. Around July, Amara La Negra announced she was a partner with hergivenhair.com. That is when I decided to make a purchase. Amara is known for her honesty, and I truly believe she wouldn’t work with just any hair brand. When her pictures came out, I couldn’t help but be in awe.

FYI, the wigs are expensive but I have bought way more expensive wigs that the quality of the hair didn’t match. I am not saying just blow your money away though, still, be smart.

Back to hergivenhair, even though the wigs are on the pricey side I can confess the hair texture is perfect and the hair itself is full and bouncy. I purchased the wigs already bleached and plucked which made applying the wig on top of my hair easier. You can not tell that it is a wig which I am living for. Honestly, it is hergivenhair.com for me.

Below are my faves from hergivenhair.com:
