Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been in a constant battle to control my unruly locks. No matter what I do, I just can’t seem to achieve a hair style that complements my bone structure and is easy to maintain. Either my do comes out looking disheveled, or I have to spend an hour and a half doing my hair everyday.

Last year, I became fed up with these perpetual hair headaches and shaved off all of my hair. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t start walking around town with a shorn scalp. Instead, I began wearing lace front wigs for black women. Now I can change my style at the drop of the hat and it only takes me a few minutes to get ready each morning. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner.
