When you hear the word wig you think costumes and Halloween and fun, but not everyone who buys a wig is doing it to dress up. Some are buying a new wig to look better for a special occasion, some are trying to hide their natural hair because they hate it and some like me wear a wig because they are losing their hair.
I suffer from Alopecia,not just any type of Alopecia but Scarring Alopecia. This is permanent hair loss and I have dealt with this since I was about 13 years old. You can read my post Life, Love and Wigs: A Struggle with Hair Loss to learn more about my experience with wearing a wig and hair loss.
Shopping for a New Wig
Shopping for wigs was so difficult back then. You had to go to the wig store, try on what they had and hoped you liked something. You could order out of a catalog but you never knew what you were going to get. There were no reviews letting you know if the wig was good or even the company for that matter. Yes this was the time before the internet, well before it was big anyway.
Now though, buying a wig is so much easier you can find so many online stores that offer wigs and one that has really caught my eye is Divatress. Now I wasn’t aware of Divatress until I was asked to do this post, but I don’t just write about anything so I took a look at their site and was so impressed. I personally hate synthetic wigs, but when you are living paycheck to paycheck you can’t be picky.
Synthetic wigs are cheaper then human hair, but I still found I hated dealing with them. Over the last few months I have learned though, that they can be easy to take care of. I love that Divatress has the selection they have for the prices they offer and am going to get one! I wanted to share a few that I am thinking about getting. (please offer opinions as I can’t decide)
I’m a little confused as to long or short, but these are all under $30 and I like them all. I may eventually buy them all, but right now I just need one. I would be getting them all in a red or wine color as I love how it looks on me.
Help me choose!
