I have been natural for about 7 years now, and I must say, I don’t miss the creamy crack in any way. I just prefer big, huge, Diana Ross, Chaka Khan type hair. I don’t like how I look with straight hair, my head is just too long and straight hair never suited me that well; I looked boring and just like everyone else.
I always either have braids, crochet, twists, or wearing one of the may wigs I own. Let me first clear up this stigma a lot of people have towards wigs. I have a ton of hair, it’s extremely thick (see below), which is why I choose NOT to deal with it.
But some folks assume that if you have thick long hair that you CAN’T wear wigs. I constantly hear: “why do you even wear wigs? You HAVE hair”. Who started these fabrications? Making people think wigs are specifically for the bald, someone with no edges, or someone with short hair.
After looking at those photos, you tell me who would have the energy to deal with that every day? I wear wigs because I get bored easily (gemini life) and I like to change up my style constantly. If I choose to wear blonde hair on Monday, red hair on Tuesday, purple hair on Wednesday, and teal hair on Thursday, then I can easily do that with different wigs. But would I honestly be able to pull this off with my natural hair? NEVER. You show me one person on this planet who can dye/bleach their hair every other day, and I will show you a super hero. HA HA
