Half Wig Options for Naturals

As I stated previously, I am going back to half wigs (instant weaves) for a bit. I have decided to try topical growth agents and supplements to boost my growth rate. Instant weaves will give me access to my hair AND a cute style when I need it.

Most naturals get frustated with instant weaves because they select the wrong wigs. Straight and shiny synthetic wigs are not the best option if you are natural. In order to make your instant weave look as natural as possible, it is best to choose a textured or curly half wig.

In my fotki album, I provide a tutorial on how to install and blend a half wig. Check it out for tips and getting that natural look that you desire.

Here are a few instant weaves that are ideal for natural heads.

thanks for this, I am really looking into wigs to let my natural hair grow but a straight wig is not looking so good right now

I'm glad you posted this. I am sporting braids right now but I miss my own hair. After these suckas come down, I plan to rock a wig and these are some great options.
