Curls & Color

If you’ve been following my blog over the years, you may have noticed that I like to change my hair styles frequently. I let my natural hair grow long for several years, but last Summer I was in the mood for a change, so I chopped it all off for a short haircut (picture here).
Of course, here we are one year later, and I’ve changed my mind, again… Alas I must patiently wait until my hair grows back. In the interim, I find protective styling to be a staple to my natural hair care regime. They offer me length and versatility all while maintaining the health of my natural hair. Protective styling comes in a number of styles. My two favorites protective styles are wigs and braided extensions (see examples here & here).
During the years that I wore my natural hair long, I had to forgo my favorite protective styling options simply because they weren't conducive. I cannot contain my excitement that I finally get to wear wigs again! I made my very first purchase of remi hair with Bobbi Boss almost 15 years ago. I am excited to be able to review and share my recent experience with one their premium human hair wigs!*
 I am wearing the Bobbi Boss “MHLF-G” lace front unit. The color is a “2”. This color is a bit lighter than I expected. I will darken it a bit with temporary dye.The wig has a lace inset in the front, around the hairline, and slightly to the side to allow for a natural looking part. There are 3 combs in the netted cap to help secure the unit, and 2 adjustable straps in the back to loosen or tighten for your personal comfort. I wear my hair in corn rows underneath, and find the combs to be most helpful. Note: you do not need to use adhesive to apply this unit.
The wig is made from 100% premium remi human hair. The texture is naturally curly, it has a wonderful sheen, and is very soft. I've washed it twice, using the same shampoos and conditioners that I use on my own natural hair (which is also curly).
This Bobbi Boss lace front unit is an excellent addition to my hair stash; I anticipate styling it in many ways! 
Stay tuned my Loves....

  1. Loving this outfit, queen! The color scheme is perf and giving me all the summer time vibes. My go to protective style at the moment is crochet hairstyles. I'm currently rocking faux locs. Thanks for sharing your personal style and inspiring curvy ladies like myself to rock what makes us feel beautiful. Shine on, love ❤

    1. Thanks Kishina!!! It was an unexpected combo worn to the office, and it turned out that I really liked it :) I'd love to try out crotchet braids, but that means I'd need to find a stylist first. I haven't had one in almost 5 years :) However, I think my drought is getting ready to end, LOL!
