Many people assume that women wear wigs, weaves and hair extensions is because they are not happy with their natural hair. However, most of the time this is not true! There are many different reasons women enjoy wearing wings. For starters, a lot of women wear wigs today because it is “in fashion,” protects hair and scalp. Other women wear wigs because of religious beliefs and loss of hair due to medical reasons.

- Wearing wigs nowadays is a fashionable quick fix to styling your hair and rocking a different hair color or style without damaging it.
- It also gives their hair and scalp a break from harsh chemical hair products, flat irons, curling irons and blow dryers.

hair loss due to medical reasons
I never wore a wig before but recently I was given an opportunity to review one from bhairextension.com. Actually, I was happy to try out a wig because there are days I am so busy I don’t have time to style my long locks. In addition, I always wanted to try out the bold ombre hairstyle but was too afraid to take the plunge. An ombre hairstyle is where your hair goes from dark to light. Basically, this hairstyle gives the illusion of your hair growing back in or in some cases highlighted by the sun.
The wig I am wearing is the Outre Synthetic Lace Wig. It is silky, straight, and kanikalon heat resistant. I found that the color in person looks way better than the picture on the website. A synthetic wig cap (comes in different sizes) and hair clips are sewn into the wig which made it easy to put on my head. I was impressed how real it felt and how natural it looks. I plan to trim the wig to my real hair length to make it look more realistic.
