First, it was Darling yaki, next came Noble hair, then Expressions, before we knew it, came Super mirrelle with it’s thick curls and bounce, then we moved to Sensationel’s Premium too. At this point, I had come to the conclusion that we have found the best hair extension for that sexy feminine, to- die- for- look at least it worked for all the hit hairstyles like the Rihannas, and the short Aaliyahs and what have you.
But then suddenly! suddenly!! suddenly!!!( In D’banj’s voice) like an A-listed super diva, she became the desire of every woman, a status symbol, a priced possession, an extension that seemed different from all the others!!
It stands in a class of it’s own. No hair brand can be compared to its texture, bounce, colour, durability. It is referred to as the GUCCI of hair, and she has commanded our unwavering attention, and not to mention the price of the hair; this is where u will know that even hair has levels oh!
THIS is what all the girls are clamouring for, and are thinking of a master plan of how to get the cash to buy. With a bang came in the extension called “Real Human Hair”.
These are just some pictures of different hair weaves and the reason why we have ladies been crazy about the different looks it offers. People want the Beyonce look and tings…….
In all honesty, I don’t get the craze ’bout this hair type, that makes every lady go gaga , I hear it’s the latest and hottest fashion trend,it’s more expensive than the shoes and purses we carry, if not even equal to d price of a pair of Louboutins.
I have loads of questions as to where this hair trend came from? Why human hair?
At 1st, it was Indian hair, and then Malaysian hair, then I heard Monrovia hair and Peruvian hair. Then came the famous lace wigs, that already has been bastardised by d 9ja woman who wants to be seen as ‘D bigz gals’ who can’t afford this hair piece that costs from 40k upwards, even then d whole world will still see the glue sticking out of the hair because it’s been badly done.
The part I don’t get at all is where some ladies go to the extent of purchasing other synthetic hair pieces and attach it to the front of their hair, all because they cannot afford the real lace front wigs,and then it looks cheap, tacky and very bad. Com’on ladies!!, it’s not a must to have lace wig on, we can’t be fooled we know it ain’t your real hair.. no be by force oh!!!!
The other day I was chatting with a friend who says she wants to start bringing in ‘Brazilian Hair’ to sell, and I was like u got to be joking,”BRAZILIAN HAIR”??? What for I asked? And her reply was that I was ‘jonzin’ oh, that that’s what is hot for sales now oh, she explained futher that she can sell a pack @ 50k and one might need 2packs, that’s already 100k just for one person oh, I started to see reasons that this might just be the hottest trade now and the fastest way to make some quick change as she called it, moreover the average 9ja babe is not ready to hit any event or club without rocking her Brazilian human hair, asin it’s either u have Brazilian hair on or you are not instyle at all.
Your outfit cannot be complete without it. This Brazilian hair has become a do or die affair and it will leave your bottom jaw dangling to know what girls do just to get the cash for this hair.
It’s scary to know how an hair piece can make you so desperate for money, and I ask “after you have this hair done what next”??? Do you win a trophy or get a gold medal? Will it make you a celebrity? Will your paycheck increase?Will you get more than the usual compliment of ‘oh your hair looks nice,where n how much did you get it?’ Or maybe it will bring husbands faster? lol
Oh well……I guess we will never know!
