Put a "WIG" on it

The summer is approaching fast, and it's time to go hard in the gym for the next couple of months. Get motivated so you can be "FLY by JuLY"!

If you still haven't learned to care for you own hair don't let it hold you back any longer. You have options you can get braids, a weave, or put a "Wig" on it. Now, I have never been really been in favor of wigs or weave but Ladies you got to put your health first. So if that means getting a sew-in or sporting a wig a couple of days a week then do just that. Oh, and these days you don't have to worry about your wig falling off. Consult with your beautician about getting a lace wig. One of my girls has one and she loves it!

I came across this site called The site seems to be geared toward women of color. They will help you find the perfect wig for your skin tone. Here is some basic info from about lace front wigs:

Whether you are experiencing hair loss, or just want a fabulous new look, a lace front wig is a great hair option. Once a secret among celebrities, lace wigs are now widely available and affordable.

A lace front wig is a wig made with human hair tied to a lace base. The two types of lace used in lace front wigs are French lace and Swiss lace. A "lace front" wig has lace at the hairline that is secured with liquid adhesive or tape. When the lace is adhered to your own hairline, it gives an invisible hairline, making it look as though the hair is growing out of your scalp."

Be sure to still care for you hair under that wig or weave though. You want those tresses to stay healthy so when you are ready to go back to wearing it natural or relaxed.

Anyone have a lace wig? Share your experience, does it make exercising easier?

If you have any other tips about hair exercise please share!

*I know my blogging is sporadic but I am still working out this whole PhD program stuff. One day I will get it together. Thanks for you support!

Wow...I just found your blog! I love it. I purchased a full custom lace wig about three years ago. It was beautiful, but it was not for me. It was too much involved in getting that thing to look real...if I had a glam squad to do it for me every day or every couple days I would be down. But for now, half wigs work for me and my work outs. You should check out, they have an entire section dedicated to lace front wigs.

I can only recommend front lace wigs. I don't know about exercising but for special occasions and events they are perfect. And I don't have to (mis-)treat my own hair to get a special hairstyle.

If you decide to go with the lacefront, I recommend avoiding The potential headache in dealing with this business is not worth the money. Customer service is less than desirable, unless you are placing an order or scheduling a consultation, it is unlikely you will actually speak with someone - even if you leave voicemail messages and email messages requesting someone to call or follow-up with the status of your order/claim. Definitely not deserving of your hard earned money. But if you like gambling, playing the odds, then give them a try.
