<strong>4 Types Of Hair To Use For Wigs</strong> 1

Several types of hair can be used to make wigs, each offering different qualities and characteristics. Some of the most common types of hair used for wigs include:

Human Hair: Human hair is popular for wig-making due to its natural look, feel, and versatility. Quality human hair can last for years with proper care and maintenance. It can be sourced from various regions, including Europe, Asia, and South America, each with unique textures, colors, and qualities. Human hair wigs can be styled, cut, and colored like natural hair, providing a more realistic appearance and greater styling flexibility.

Synthetic Hair: Synthetic hair is made from artificial fibers designed to mimic the appearance and texture of human hair. Synthetic wigs are pre-styled and ready to wear in various colors and styles. Synthetic wigs can hold their style for life but can be re-styled with either low heat or steam. They are typically more affordable and require lower maintenance than human hair wigs.

Animal Hair: In some cases, animal hair, such as horsehair, yak hair, goat hair, and more, can be used for wig-making. These hair types are often used to create specialty wigs, such as costumes or theatrical wigs. Animal hair can provide unique textures and appearances but may require special care and maintenance. Occasionally, animal hair can be used on the hairline for a softer look.

Human Hair Blend: Some wigs are made from a blend of human and synthetic fibers, offering a balance between the natural appearance of human hair and the affordability and low maintenance of synthetic hair. Blended hair wigs can provide a more budget-friendly option while still offering some styling versatility.

Was John Oliver Right About Black Hair? 7

Was John Oliver Right About Black Hair?

A few weeks ago, I was back home in Las Vegas about to go to bed when the John Oliver show just so happened to be on TV. Just as I was about to close my eyes to sleep, I saw that he was getting ready to do an entire segment on black hair. 

I sat up immediately, paying very close attention because I was very interested in hearing what he would say about our hair. I mean, part of me was like, “Oh my gosh! Am I going to be offended?” 

I didn't know what to expect because for so long black hair has been the topic of discussion in the workplace, not just from black people but also from white people or people of other ethnicities who are uncomfortable with the way we wear our hair. 

Before I get into what he talked about in the video, I want to talk a bit about some of the struggles and things that we've gone through for so many years as black women when it comes to our hair. I spent nine and a half years in the United States Air Force, and in my time in the Air Force, it was always an issue with hair, not with me personally, but in general. 

We had to follow Air Force Regulation 36-2903. That regulation had to be adhered to for you to remain compliant about your hair. Basically, you could not wear your hair in a “faddish” style. 

The natural texture of black hair was considered a fad, so you couldn't wear your fro if you were going natural, for example. Braids were sometimes an issue, wearing a nice tapered short brush cut was an issue, and so were locs.

But in my mind, the question I always asked myself was, “What other ethnicity would be told that the natural texture of their hair is faddish?” 

All of this comes from a simple lack of understanding of our hairstyles' cultural meaning. Have you ever experienced someone asking if they could touch your hair? Or maybe they make a snide comment like, “it's just nappy.” All of this comes from a lack of communication and understanding.

Okay, back to John Oliver because I want to give him and his writers credit for the research and love they put into their show concerning black hair and all the drama we have to deal with just to live in a world that completely disrespects our God-given hair at every point.

You can watch the show here. 

His team did an incredible job doing the research, and they got it right. Our hair is not an ornament. Our hair is a cultural thing for us, and everyone in the world needs to understand that. 

To have someone like John Oliver, who is not a black man, or a black woman, create a piece like this and nail it to me is absolutely amazing. 

So thanks John, you made a difference, and I'm very thankful this issue hit your radar, and you chose to take action on it.

I Went Back To The Creamy Crack

So on Tuesday I went back to the creamy crack! In all honesty I never really left, I just took a break and wore braids for a few months to give my hair a break.

I have to say I LOVE my hair short!

The young lady that did my hair was outstanding! Check out some of the footage I filmed while I was at her salon.

How To Do A Full Head Sew In Weave

One of the things I was most known for in my salon was my sew-in weaves. I always had my “go to” technique for clients who wanted some of their hair left out. Because it was one of my favorite techniques, I decided to film it a few years ago, and now I'm sharing it with you!

Although this video is a throwback, this technique is still awesome and will give you great results!

I hope you enjoy!
