ZAFUL Review: It's A Dotted Kind Of Day

Hello, lovelies! How's your week? It's been so long since my last outfit post and I am excited to share with you the outfit I wore to my recent get together with my family. I am glad my nephew brought his dslr camera because my husband was just using my iPhone recently when we do outfit shoot. I totally forgot I still have a ZAFUL item that had been waiting to be worn. My closet is a pile of a mess but I will find time to sort it out in the coming weekend. I hope you find inspiration in this look, lovelies!

Beginner's Guide To Using Wigs As A Protective Style

Wigs have become more popular amongst naturalistas as protective styles. Here's a guide on how you can use them while caring for your natural hair.

1. Find The Right Wig

You can browse several styles according to the hair type, length, cut, color and parting how you'd like. You can learn more about my favorite wigs in every category here. Generally, synthetic wigs tend to be cheaper, but they don't last as long while wigs made with human virgin hair can cost several hundred dollars, but if well-maintained can be used for months as protective styles. When finding the right wig, also take into consideration its cap construction. Higher end wigs tend to have a full cap construction made of swiss lace. Mid-tier units tend to incorporate lace fronts but with a smaller budget, you're likely to get synthetic lace wigs.

2. Prep Your Hair

Assuming you've found the right wig, go ahead and prep your hair for your protective styles. Remember, our natural hair is fragile, so even while wearing wigs, it's imperative that we keep our ends protected.

It's best to wear wigs on freshly cleansed and moisturised hair. Avoid applying heavy pomades and butters that can clog your scalp's pores or leave excessive residue on your wig. As best as you can, have your hair in neat cornrows or even two-strand twists. Leaving your hair in a shrunken fro will only lead to tangling and matting under your wig.

Remember, the goal of protective styles is to give our hair a break from manipulation to preserve its health in the long run.

3.Care For Your Edges

When I first started wearing wigs, I made the mistake of securing them with old bobby pins or worse still, combs. Within a couple of months, I noticed my edges were receding!
Over time, I've learned to better care for my edges. First, I apply castor oil at least twice a week between uses. Castor oil is speculated to stimulate one's hair follicles leading to hair growth.

Secondly, I use bobby pins to avoid scratching my scalp and tearing at hair shafts as I secure my wig. I make sure to regularly shift the placement of my bobby pins to avoid causing too much wear and tear on my hair.

Lastly, I avoid glue and tape, by all means, possible as they are known to pull out entire hair bulbs especially when the wig is being removed.

4. Keep Your Hair Cleansed and Moisturized

Remember to take care of your natural hair. This means keeping it cleansed and moisturised even as you wear wigs. I tend to take off my wigs at the end of the day to allow my scalp to breathe. I keep up my regimen as usual by deep conditioning weekly and sealing in the moisture with a light oil like argan or grapeseed oil. I also take time to re-tuck in my ends to ensure they can fully benefit from being protected.

In addition, I take breaks from wigs and switch up my protective styling using two strand twists or braid outs. Wearing wigs for excessive periods of time can lead to scalp irritation or even fungal infections. I try to keep my wigging cycles up to 8 weeks and then give my wholesale hair 4 weeks to aerate.

5.Care For Your Wigs

To get the most out of your unit, be sure to wash it at least once every two weeks with a mild shampoo. Depending on whether it is made of human hair or not, you can go on to deep condition it, particularly if you've applied dyes to it. Most units will come with an instruction manual on how to care for the wig so take some time to read this carefully in order to increase the shelf-life of your unit.
