Don’t worry, the bra is already off at this point. Anyway….
I wear wigs.
I also wear weaves.
And braids/twists/faux locs…whatever I feel like (and can afford) at the time…it’s usually wigs or weaves though.
A lot of people I’ve encountered still get confused when I tell them that because they assume that me wearing a wig means that I don’t have any hair. Or that I’m trying to be someone else, or my favourite, that I’m running away from who I ‘really’ am. So, before we begin..Yes, I have hair. No, I’m not ashamed of it.
So, why do I wear weaves/wigs/ etc? Because I’m lazy. And also because I like playing around with different looks but it’s mainly laziness because I don’t even bother experimenting anyway. Should really work on that.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s been a battle to accept myself with my natural hair but I think that’s more to previously not knowing how to maintain it, it used to be extremely coarse…and also due to mean people in school making dumb comments about it which affected my confidence a lot…thankfully I’ve been building it back up over the years. Wow, that was open…is this a therapy session or what?
This is my natural hair btw…
And no, my edges aren’t ‘snatched’ all the time…they’re pretty much never snatched. Why? Because as stated above, I’m lazy. You think I’m joking about that don’t you? Ahh my dears, if only you knew…Anyway, if the need calls for it, like I’m attending a casting or something believe me, I’ll ‘snatch’ my edges as quick as I snatch the last slice of pizza…but for now, it’s really not my priority.
I was going to put some facts here but I didn’t want to make this post too long so I’ll save that for another. I’ll just post some of my different hair looks for y’all.
To all my wig/weave/extension wearers don’t let anyone else make you feel ashamed, fly that hair flag!
