Have you ever wanted to change your look but didn’t have the time to go to a salon? Or, have you ever wanted to see yourself in a new hair color but couldn’t bring yourself to do the deed? I’ve been there and honestly, I’m still there. But, when I first became ill in 2010 my hair began to fall out and I went from shoulder length hair to chin length rather quickly. To help boost my self-esteem I began experimenting with wigs. Yes, wigs!
After reading this article you will have the tools necessary to pick the perfect wig for you. My first wig came from Divatress, I even wrote about it on my blog titled “New Day, New Hair” in this article I discuss my experience with Divatress and why I love them. Therefore, today all the wigs I will show you, you can purchase at Divatress for an affordable price.
How to Choose the Perfect Wig for You
According to Oprah.com, you need to consider three things before choosing a wig:
- Consider how you usually wear your hair. Do you prefer curly hair? Straight back? Or a side part? Knowing this from the start will alleviate that overwhelming feeling when you start to shop online or visit a wig store.
- Think about how long you plan to wear the wig and what you would like to do with your wig. Want to style it and have it for several years? then a human hair wig may be best for you. But, they have come a long way with wigs in recent years. Now they make synthetic wigs that can withstand heat up to 400 F. For example, the Outré Quick Weave Complete Cap Wig- Thalia can be heat styled due to her high tex heat resistant fiber. I’ve been eyeballing this wig for some time now. She’ll be mine one day.
- Now this is important, always have your wig cut once it’s on your head. I made the mistake of trying to wear a wig straight out of the box and boy was that a nightmare. It was too heavy around my face, meaning there was too much hair. I looked older than my age and was a laughing-stock to my family for a good week. Don’t be me. Go get your wig styled. If it is synthetic please make sure that your stylist knows how to cut synthetic hair; special shears are a must.
