Hi guys..so similar to the conversation we had in this post, myself and my friend got into talking about the wig life. So I’m like “I live for this wig thing oh especially with the heat and all lately. Also because of the freedom and easy access to my natural hair wearing wigs provide” and she goes yea that’s so true and all (she’s also natural). Mind you, the first thing I literally do when I get home is take off my wig before anything else.. It’s like I leave my house just so I can come home and take off my wig lool. It’s just a beautiful way to live.. Then we started talking of how we may probably wear wigs forever (a little dramatic yea?) except when our hair is in braids or in its natural state.
Then the question of ‘what of when you’re in a relationship or you’re married? came up.. How will you go about the house without hair or rather in boring cornrows all the time.. Hmm speaking of, at the moment, both of us are single and haven’t been in a relationship since we started living the wig life so the whole thing was just hypothetical. And I said, my husband will have to get used to seeing me in cornrows oh because there’s really nothing I can do and she’s like hell nah, when I get home, I’ll loosen my cornrows and put my hair in a simple style..
Me: What of when you have to go out the next day?
K: I’ll put my hair back in the corn rows and even have him help me. Me: So it’s going to be an everyday thing?
K: Yes oh, I have to stay cute for my husband..
That is such a struggle and although I understand where she’s coming from, I do not see myself going there at all. My arms aren’t made of rubber now. My husband will find a way to deal with the corn rows biko. But okay I’m jumping the gun here. What of my boyfriend who I still have to impress and stay on ‘fleek’ for? That got me thinking.. Will I put on a wig each time he’s coming over to see me or spend the night? Ha! But then how will I just be rocking cornrows 80% of the time we are together? This was our dilemma oh dear people Lool. I love the wig life to be honest but you can admit it’s not comfortable all the time except you want to look like an old woman who has just given up on fleeking yes?
So what do you guys think? Rock the cornrows not withstanding or loosen and restyle your hair everyday like K? Let me know your thoughts.. If you’re married or in a relationship and you can relate, please we need your advice ohh lol.
Ps: this is just for laughs. I’m all for being happy and comfortable in what you choose.
Lots of love.. Ella
