Top 10 Natural Hair Weave and Wig Companies




by Jonna of BlackNaps.org

Whether you’re transitioning from relaxed to natural, looking for a protective style option, or just want to switch up your look-- wearing weave or extensions is the way to go for a lot of women. Until more recently, women with naturally curly or kinky hair would be hard pressed to find hair extensions that match their hair texture. Malaysian, Peruvian, even Phillipino maybe. But what if you’re looking to rock hair extensions that look something like your own kinks and curls?

Within the past few years, this void in the marketplace has been filled. Weave and extensions are now available that resemble textured natural hair. Now women can find weave with the kinkiest of kinks so no one has to feel left out. What makes these new options so significant is that you don’t have to manipulate your own hair as much to get the two textures to match. Which is part of the whole point of protective styling anyway. You also can experiment with colors and styles that you may not want to do on your own hair, like going blonde or a shorter cut. One other perk is that others are less likely to know that you’re wearing extensions.

Here’s a list of the 10 best natural hair weave companies servicing all the naturalistas. Most offer a variety of options including wigs, clip-in wefts, closures, and sew-in extensions to suit your styling needs.

Shea Moisture announced that their hair collection will be at Walgreens on April 1, 2011! I had the pleasure of meeting Richelieu Dennis and Nyema Tubman, founders of the line, and they confirmed it. They'll be starting off with a few regions and expanding over time. Exciting times!

Janelle says:

Nikki,
Love the blog it's taken me through many a hairum scarum event. At the hair show that you just recently went to, it was announced that Shea Moisture products will be hitting the shelves at everyone's local Walgreens! I can hardly contain my excitement...now I dont have to stalk Amazon since it's usually sold out at my Target. A great affordable product within arms reach.
