curly-wigs

In Chris Rock’s much talked about documentary “Good Hair,” there’s a scene where he tries to sell textured fake hair to a beauty supply store and is told no one wants to purchase it. But curly and kinky afro wigs and weaves are experiencing a resurgence in popularity as of late.

As women swear off relaxers for health and style reasons, and rock their ‘fros, the hairstyle itself is becoming popular among women with varying textures. In fact, women are experimenting with curly weaves and wigs with no plans to ditch their relaxer and go natural.

The curly afro wig/weave looks beautiful on some women and it offers a non-committal way to embrace the textured look. But do you love it, Clutchettes?

Is this a trend you would try, or watch fly by?

    I have natural hair & in the winter I like to wear wigs that resemble my own, so I opt for the afro wigs–the afro-ier, the better, but they’re always short afro wigs. I’ve actually been scouting a few new ones lately. If I can’t find afro wigs, then I opt for curly like in the pics. Every once in a while I’ll go for straight to try out the styles I never took advantage of when I used to have a perm.

    I want one so badly.

  • Or…you could just grow a real Afro? I have an Afro, and I only knew this was a thing because people have started asking me if my hair is real. I cut all my relaxed hair off because people would stick their hands in it to feel for a weave (it was always long and silky), then I had an afro people would ask to touch. Now I feel I’m back at square one!

      stop feeling yourself. it is not that deep. it’s your hair. if you want other people out of your hair and business, do the same for others. if you want an afro wig, by all means, rock it. it’s your head and you can do whatever you want with it.
