Not weave but wearing a wig. Are you comfortable to say it's a wig or do you think people still only think you must be bald as a babies bottom to wear wigs?
Do you tell people it's a weave rather than wig when asked?
Yes, I think wigs still carry a stigma to them
because people think maybe you are bald underneath. But how can being bald be a source of dismissal or a putdown? Just shows how petty people are
You never know when you might have a problem with your hair so ... karma can be a b....
Wigs have been around for ages but weaves just started 25 some years ago. I remember when they first came out - what a shocker.
That said - I wear lace wigs - but umm mainly people think it's mine or a partial (back) weave... as they think the front is mine. (Weaves take your hair out eventually but wigs help grow out your hair)
I don't tell people it's a wig - what for? So they can say 'really? .. but how did you get this part to look that way etc..? So then we have to go through the whoooole conversation and people just look at you like you have just grown another head out of the side of your neck! Hee hee!
To wear it well depends on the application. I use low density, 14 - 16 inch units, natural color, where I thin and customize the edges myself and the texture (now) is kinky curly. Makes a big difference. If you go with the silky units and all sorts of colors and whatnot, with the out-of-the-box hairlines, and 24 inches etc... yes, everyone will know what's on your head. (It's like makeup
.. keep it minimal or else it looks fake. But this is a wasted comment on this forum with the tremendous makeup looks I see)
I have seen some horrors though.... so I understand why people don't like them. Oh well.
