Lace Front Hell
One of my fav sites, Balleralert.com wrote a post about lace front wigs. Not all lace front wigs are bad, especially if you have a medical need to wear one, or you have enough money to purchase premium quality lace front wigs like the rich and famous. But even they look quite dreadful from time to time (click here). But what is bad is those lace front wigs that Shaquanilla nem' is purchasing at the corner Korean beauty supply store. I go into a beauty supply store maybe ever 5 to 6 months for petty stuff like dax wave goop for my son, a new brush, or something. But I 'll be damned if I don't time my visit on the calendar. I hate to say it but I dare carry my ass up there around the 1st of the month. Look don't judge me, go on up there to the beauty supply store and see for yourself on the 1st. Its a mad house.
I almost get ran over by women and girls trying to get to the counter trying on this wig, or that wig. Just grabbing up whatever they can. That shit don't even fit! Seriously. Lace fronts are supposed to be fit to your head. How about the time I went home to visit, and a family member, (lawd I ain't gone say no names) had one on. It was dreadful! The glue visible, the stray hairs she wore loose to give the illusion of baby hair or something? When I asked her about the travesty she simply quoted, "I love the white girl look!" Honey I just smiled curtly and took a swig of my wine. Now lets move on....
I am NOT a natural hair nazi you know this! However, I can't get with these damn random ass lace front wigs hanging off these heifers heads looking like a dead cat. We need to speak up and let some of these sisters know (be careful because Shalanella nem' can get pretty rowdy when you try and tell them something about their appearance). The time, energy, and money they spend on these synthetic traps that usually only look good for 1 -2 wears they can invest into their own hair. I mean we as black women have to get to know our own hair and textures, so that we can be happy with what we have. Still I know some of you have family and friends that are walking around with these corner store dead cats on top of their heads, smh.
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!
