I think all of us can agree that we love to change our hair up from time to time. We add color, install mermaid length poetic justice braids, flat iron* straight, the point is we love to experiment with different looks and why not?
Our beautiful hair textures whether kinky*, curly, or wavy allows for us to have transformations that rivals even Optimus Prime himself. With that said, wigs* are one of the easiest and fastest ways to transform our hair to any style that we can imagine especially when we do not feel like changing our own hair..
I think however that the biggest issues for us, especially us natural hair ladies is one finding a wig that can look natural enough to be mistaken for our natural hair textures and two finding a wig that doesn’t cost half of your rent . Below we have three wigs* for you that without a doubt would be mistaken for your “real hair” and would not break the bank.
1. It’s a Wig- Human Hair Afro Curl
Now, for me this wig is one of the closest that I have seen to kinky* hair that did not cost an arm or a leg. Matter of fact, it is very similar to the short Solange wig you can check it out and compare for yourself. Here are a few pros and cons on this beautiful unit.
Price: $44.89 (w/o taxes) at hairwigharlem.com
Type: 100% Human Hair Full-Cap Wig (No Lace)
►It’s a human hair wig* so it lasts just about forever.
►It can be manipulated a bit more than synthetic hair and the curls come back just by wetting it.
►It’s a full cap, this is mostly for the ladies who are easily irritated by the lace in lace wigs*.
►Its low-medium density which is great for women who aren’t fans of super big Diana Ross hair.
►A lot of women that have reported excessive shedding which can be a pain in the rear.
►Because it is a lace free wig*, you have no parting options and you will most likely have to take a bit of your own hair out around the edges if you want to wear it pulled back.
►For the ladies who like big “gone with the wind” fab hair this unit will not provide that, but you could fluff it out to create the appearance of higher density if you are not worried about compromising definition.

2. Beshe Drew
Now most of us that are familiar with the wig world are familiar with the Beshe Drew wig. Without a doubt, this unit is one of the most loved units for natural ladies or just ladies who want to rock a natural hair look.
