Don't let shrinkage get to you especially when there are no or few other Black people around.Yup I just purchased a blonde wig. I actually want to add done "root realness" to it though and take some of the shine out. I actual did get frustrated with my hair in Taiwan. I love wearing my hair stretched 95% of the time. However it is humid pretty much all the time. My hair already loves to shrink to ridiculously but then combine that with the humid weather...... Seriously I was so pissed.
I use to have fun sitting there and letting making my hair expand just to see people's faces. Strangely it's more fun with adults than kids, as kids are more used to things changing.
