For the past several months I have quit putting a relaxer in my hair. This was no easy task. Because my hair is particularly course, I’ve been wearing a relaxer since I was about 13 years old.
I love the way my hair looks when it’s straightened, but the benefits of the relaxer has caused irreparable damage to my hair. Split ends, dry lifeless hair and even hair loss is some of the damage I suffered as a result of wearing a relaxer. So since I decided to “go natural” I had to research and find other options available to me. Surprisingly there are many options. Braids can be worn in many different styles, lengths and colors. I wore “zillions” (small micro braids) for the entire summer. They were easy to care for and I could change the style almost daily if I chose to. Now, that the summer is over, I decided I wanted to give wigs a try. Wigs have really come a long way. There are so many options to choose from. Short styles, synthetic hair, real hair, they even have braided wigs. What I really like about the option of wearing a wig is, when you find a particular style you can buy it anywhere, even online. Wigs for sale online are an option I didn’t know was available to me. I was very impressed by the vast assortment of wigs offered online.Even while wearing the wigs I can still keep my hair natural. I am feeling much better about my decision to “go natural” with my hair. I’ve done my research and I am very happy with the results.
