It’s been some four months since Black History Month in February. We’ve come so far, but there’s still a long way to go before we truly reach equality. It’s difficult to imagine being discriminated against for our hair colour, but I’ve witnessed it at work when a co-worker received criticism over her blue hair. But she was white, and for black women there are massive implications if they don’t follow the social norm of having silky straight. We know anecdotally that some black women have lost their jobs for wearing their natural hair to work and for many women, wearing a wig is the easiest non-fuss way to look good and more importantly, feel good. Last year in America, over $950 million was spend on African American hair products, but not everyone can afford to buy them and the time alone spent at the hair dressers can really add up. 

For women who love to update their look on a monthly, or even weekly basis wigs are the way to go. Gone are the days where African American Wigs lack style, with BestHairBuy offering a modest selection of 360 lace wigs in various lengths and cuts from silky smooth to ringlets all in natural black. Many lace wigs are made from human hair, which can be very costly but as technology gets better, the quality of synthetic hair continues to improve with many women favoring the latter. The technique remains the same, with lace front wigs looking much more natural and easier to style, with the hair hand tied or sewn under the cap to create an undetectable hairline. Many wigs can only be worn a certain way, but with BestHairBuy fibers are hand tied to a poly silk mesh base, which can be parted in any direction. The breathable material is perfect for warm summer evenings, or late nights out partying with your squad.

Not everyone is open to the idea of wearing a wig, but more hair means more styling options and an easy way to get their is to get extensions. Natural black hair is very fragile, and like most of us constant chemicals or heat treatments, along with excessive pulling/jerking can in some cases lead to permanent hair loss or bald patches that won't grow back. Even techniques like braiding can put unnecessary strain on the hair. To reduce the amount of expensive chemical treatments aand the damage that they can cause both in the short term and the long term, hair extensions are as easy as clip, snap and go. Like everything these days, there are heaps of easy to follow Youtube tutorials as well if you’re new to the world of hair extensions. BestHairBuy hair extensions have a great selection in various colours, textures and price points.
