Why I Will Never Get a Weave Again
In my mind, I’ve decided weaves are old school- outdated technology if you will. The tight braids, the itching, and the expense associated with getting a full weave just aren’t necessary anymore. Why? Because of the half-wig. I’d be lying if I told you that I’ve researched the history of the half-wig- meaning, I don’t know which came first. I’d assume the weave because it is essentially sewing and I think sewing has been around for a long time. So half-wigs are officially weave 2.0. Here’s why:
1. Half-wigs are inexpensive. You can get a decent half-wig for $25 and it will last as long as, if not longer than, your average weave.
2. You don’t need the services of a professional to wear a half-wig. Pick one up from styleillusions.com and the only tools you need are a comb and a brush.
3. It takes approximately 8 minutes and 27 seconds to fully incorporate your half-wig into your hair in the morning. Weaves take an hour or two and they still have to be groomed in the morning.
4. Half-wigs, when applied correctly, look just like a great weave!
So- better, faster, stronger- sounds like new technology to me. If you haven’t tried a half-wig yet, isn’t it about time?
