Why I Wear Wigs
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying before:
“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life” – CoCo Chanel
I’m also sure we all understand its’ meaning. Scissors + hair = freeing yourself of dead weight, starting anew, changing your image, becoming a new you, yadda yadda. So yeah, cutting your hair may be good n’ all for some folks…
BUT as a black woman AND as a fellow “struggle bus” member of the natural hair community, I say “hell no”.
Hell no, am I cutting off these precious locks that I’ve cultivated and harvested for three years with my blood, sweat, and tears (’cause it IS that serious) just to feel like a new me! Well, at least not yet am I cutting this hair! You have the wrong one, sir/ma’am.
And so here I am, to say to you,
“Hi, I’m Jaleesa and I’m a wig-aholic”.
Before starting nocountryforoldtrends IG, my previous account featured pictures of myself wearing a new wig like clockwork. I was able to change my hairstyle so often because I am a proud, little scrooge who ordered then and STILL order now ONLY synthetic wigs.
Synthetic wigs and weave may get a bad rep within the hair community. But my synthetic babies are exactly what my self-diagnosed ADD personality needs. As soon as I crave a different persona, there’s a cheap synthetic wig that’ll last a few weeks up until a month or two to rescue me from my style rut, to make me a new person.
