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?

  2. I would recommend purchasing the Jeri Curl style extensions from Tony Lugo’s in Midtown then going to a trusted beautician and have him/her install them using the sew-in method. It will be much more cost-effective than $900.

  3. I have my own, homegrown afro, but if I didn’t a wig might be in order. Before I stopped straightening my hair with flat irons, I would only get weave/half wigs that matched my texture, which was afro-ish.

  4. Just search “kinky curly weave” on YouTube and you’ll find tons of options people have already reviewed there.

  5. Afro wigs? The wigs pictured are “Mixed Chicks” wigs.

    I don’t know, would these women feel comfortable in their skin with the afro that grows out of their own heads?

    I still get a self-hatish vibe from this.

      Where in the world besides teevee, are people believing that being mixed race denotes a kind of hair texture?
