Hair can make you look and feel like a totally new person. I have been experimenting with different hairstyles for the longest time. Short hair, long, straight, curly, bob cut, kinky curl, dyeing different hair colours, you name it, I probably have done it. The only problem with doing all those things to your hair is you’ll end up damaging it if you’re not careful. I have had my hair fried and become so brittle after a bad rebonding and bleaching. It was a nightmare for me.
I have always loved hair extensions. I started playing around with hair extensions when I was 17. I remember having short hair at that time and I thought my hair took too long to grow so I got my first set of hair extensions. It was cheap and I look very funny.
I want to share something pretty personal with you my beauties. At the age of 23 I started to realise I’m losing a bunch of hair on a daily basis. I have some medical problem that cause me to shed a lot of hair. I have very low iron and my blood was low too. I’ve tried everything but nothing work. I was diagnosed with cancer recently. One of the side effect of my medication is hair loss. My hair continue to shed and the thinning was so bad that I could easily see my scalp. For a woman it hit me pretty hard. I decided to chop my hair super short.
I decided to give wig a go. At this time hair extensions isn’t going to help with my visible scalp situation. My first try with a wig was scary. I have no clue how to put it on. I spend hours watching youtube videos and I was so anxious going out thinking everyone was going to judge me. To my surprise people actually can’t tell that I got a wig on. I’m thinking now why isn’t wig normalise here in Singapore? I know my friends in the states rocking their wig all day everyday. I think wig is cool. You can change up your look without damaging your hair. You’ll never get bored of the same hairstyle and hair colour! I get to live my dream of having blonde hair!
I prefer lace front wig because it look more natural. Beginners wig wearer always go for wig with bangs. It’s the safest choice. I’m not going to go into detail on different type of wigs. That’s a whole other article by itself. I’m not a wig expert. I still have trouble putting on my wig.
