Does your hair get mistaken for a wig?
 
I Get this a lot when my hair is out in a twistout. I have big hair and you can't see my scalp so people who compliment it often ask if it's a wig and how do I do my hair like that. Even when I had a perm, hatin' girls at school thought it was fake because I took care of it.


I take it as a compliment because that means its thick and lush.

So, does this happen to you, random strangers thinking it's fake?

i wish i had that problem:toothy7:
my daughter is often asked if her hair is a weave. people would come up to her at school and slickly touch her hair to feel for tracks. her hair is relaxed but lush and thick too. :)

If I had a quarter for every time I grt that I would be rich. my hair is massively dense and can get really big. People ask me if it's my real hair or if it is all my hair (like a hair piece). Some people I guess not believing me have actually stuck their fingers in to feel my scalp. Not cool.
Funny thing is I also wear a straight bob wig which is short and "tame" and most people think it's my real hair.

If i have a super hot WnG i get is that your real hair. Never a wig though

Hah!

I wish my hair looked good enough to be mistaken for a wig!

ALL THE TIME....When straightened and while in its natural state...It's the color and shine, my hair tends to look synthetic

EtTu2 09-28-2012 02:08 PM

Yep!
I was at work one day and some random guy argued with me trying to say my jair wasnt real. It was pretty embaressing. I also had a lady grab my hair from behind. I thought I was going to have to start swinging but then she asked if my hair was real and asked what I do to it. I gladly told her and then she said" oh, well I cant do that with my hair." :/

People may questioned wither my hair is wig when I'm wearing a twist out.

PearlsForCurls 09-28-2012 06:09 PM

I'm still in the TWA stage, so I get asked what kind of texturizer I use very often. I get gasps when I say I don't use them lol. The product question usually follows the gasps. Ohh the joys of being natural. ;)

Lol! All the time. Today was the worst because I did my first chunky braidout ,and it was beautiful

it's funny because just yesterday I got complimented on my hair and this woman asks me how I do it. I told her that I just twist while damp and unravel them. Then she looks at me like she's expecting me to say more, well that's it, lol.

It's not magic, it's the beauty of 4a hair :)

No.

When its straight all the time. And when its in a puff people ask me if its a puff piece.

Johari 09-28-2012 11:57 PM

When its straighten I get mistaken for a relaxer look a like or weave. If done curly with roller sets then ya some people think its a wig!

Only when I was in high school.....but not a wig....maybe a weave or hair piece. That never happens anymore.

I can't believe someone grabbed your hair, let alone argued with you about it.

People are nuts.

When I wear two strand twists, I am sometimes asked what brand of synthetic hair I used for my kinky twist. When I explain that there is no added hair; that it's my natural hair twisted I am often given the side eye. It used to bug me but now I just blow it off. I feel it's a testament to the fact that my hair is dense and growing and I'm retaining the length. :toothy7:

Once when I wore a twist out my family and I went to Six Flags. My hair became big and fluffy after walking around the amusment park for several hours and my youngest son told me I looked like I had a wig on. Out of the mouth of babes, I tell you... :wink:

Before that I didn't mind people touching my hair- Now I have issues with people touching it. I don't know why someone would argue with me about hair. I don't think it looks fake but he could have kept his comments to hisself.

I think that has only happened to me a handful of times. Not so much recently, though. My hair isn't super dense though. I love thick, full hair!!
