Got hair envy? Who doesn’t, how many times have you come across your favorite celebrity or just a random girl on the internet with the most awesome hair you have ever seen. Then after further ‘investigation’ you find out the hair you would love to have is actually a weave or wig?
The good news is since it’s a weave or wig, you can actually have it, the bad news is you are probably not into that.
So if the answer to wearing a wig or weave for you is a hardcore no, maybe after a little coercion you might change your mind.
There are actually many benefits to rocking a weave or a wig for a while a few of which are great for the health of your own hair. Below are two reasons you should buy it while you grow it.
Weaves and wigs are one of the best options for protective styling there is out there. They not only protect the hair from our own excessive manipulation but the cover the hair and protect it from the harmful rays of the sun.
What is most important is how your care for your hair underneath, the wig or install. Keeping your own hair clean, well moisturized and sealed is a great start to protecting your own locks.
Once you have that down, the rest is easy, just don your wig or install your weave and leave your real hair alone to grow in peace. Personally I look at weaves or wigs as a means to an end, you wear them during the grow out portion of your journey and when your own hair is at the length you want you can then decided to never wear them again.
We all love to switch things up every now and then, who wants to look at the same boring hair day in and day out? A wig or a good weave gives you the chance to experiment and to sport something new while not changing a thing about your own hair.
If you like length, make it happen! If you’ve always wondered what you would look like with a short hair style, don’t cut your hair just buy some!
