Trend 2: Natural or Not?

What’s the point of getting a wig that mimics the look of your natural hair if it takes just as much work? I had that question, too. While I’ve always loved a “natural looking” wig, during the pandemic I’ve been looking for wigs that can match my “WFH casual chic” without all the work my natural hair requires. When it comes to styling and maintaining a wig that mimics the texture of a blowout on natural hair, Johnson recommended removing your wig when you sleep so “your style will last way longer.”

That’s the main key to rocking natural looking wigs with minimum effort. She added, “You might have to do a little brushing out in the morning or spritz it with a little deep conditioner, depending if it’s on the curlier natural hair side or if it’s more of a blowout look like the kinky straight trend. But one of the main things is setting that style before you go to sleep so you can literally just wake up and then put the wig on your head.”

To offer further instruction, she added, “I think sometimes when you tack [your wig] down all the way with more of a glue-based product instead of something more temporary like a Got2B glue gel, even though the lace will lay down longer, it’s also going to be more upkeep because you have to treat it like you’re sleeping with your own natural hair.” In essence, “If someone can take off their wig when they’re sleeping and then lay it flat on the nightstand or on top of a wig head, it’s going to be much easier to preserve that style for days and days on end.”
