Hair Tips: What To Learn From A Wigs Addict In Kenya

My hair is kinky and takes ages to grow. Over the years, brands like Marini Naturals have created products that are meant to help women of color tackle this issue. Their products make African hair easier to maintain. Alicia Keys has the no makeup movement talking and Kenyan blogger, Sheila Ndinda always looks amazing with her perfectly styled natural hair. I have not joined the natural band wagon yet, but I am thinking of giving it a try.

I am adventurous when it comes to my hair and most times, I let my hair stylist decide what she wants to do with my hair. I have been her client for years and she knows what goes well with my personality. A few months every year, I get tired of braiding and weaving hair so I opt for  more relaxed and easy bad hair day fix, WIGS.

Where to buy a good wig.

I have a few that are both human hair and fiber. For the human hair ones, I would recommend my friend, Gathoni Brown Kenya on Instagram. She sells amazing human hair wigs that are not only trendy but affordable as well. I would also recommend Unbeweavable Hair Kenya.

I recently discovered countless stores on the famous, River Road, that sell fiber wigs that are not of very good quality, but will do if you are on a budget. These can only take a few washes before thinning out and changing texture.

How to clean your wig

Comb the wig before washing to untangle the fibers or hair. Then using warm water, wash it using your favorite shampoo and conditioner. Make sure your shampoo does not dry out the hair. My favorite is the Amla Legend Oil Refill Hair Wash, that is available at any Nakumatt supermarket , Best Lady or Beauty options store in Nairobi.Dry it out in a hair dryer or outside, under the shade. I find cleaning wigs very tedious so I sometimes take mine to my hairdresser. It costs me ksh 200 (2$) to get it cleaned  but it is money well spent.wigs kenyan blogger
