Really?! Girl I didn't know that. I have never been back and everytime i drive past I look away
My man and I were having an unrelated argument while I was driving on the expressway and all of a sudden my head felt alot colder than usual and then I realized he had snatched my wig off. He had never seen my real hair so he probably was surprised to see that I actually have hair. I wanted to put it back on, but all I could do was say, Why you do that?
These stories are golden!
I'll share mine.
I was going camping w/ my SO and the family so I thought that I would just braid the hair under and slap my wig on with a bandana. By the 3rd day, my SO was mentioning how cute I still looked after being out in the wilderness and tried to massage my head. Before I could say "STOP!" the wig, bandana, and my dignity hit the ground! It got so dirty, I couldn't even wear it anymore. I just slapped on a bandana and answered everyone's questions about where my hair went. Time to get some good bobby pins...
I would have killed him
OMG these stories are priceless!!! you ladies are too much fun!!!!!!!!!!!!! Each time I read a story like the one about the carwash, or camping, or the fight: OMG I don't know what I would have done! I think everyone here is really brave for having gone through this stuff and can laugh at it now
This stories are too much.
But here's mine. I was starting a new job and it was super early in the morning and I had just did my first bc like a week before and was quit used to my hair so I put on a wig topped off with a scarf. Well we where in a small training group in the back of a huge warehouse and it was my turn to go in front of the class and operate the machine that we had just learned how to do. When the instructor called me I leaned my head back and took a deep breath.( don't ask me why) and sure enough I felt the whole thing slide right off my head and hit the floor. No body said a word. I turned around picked it up, and first put the wig on and then the scarf and then I took my happy little self to the front and did my presentation and sat back down. Forgot to mention that the instructor and like three other people in the class like disappeared for like 10 minutes. lol I had to give them permmison to laugh and even then they felt bad.
Yay, my 2nd post!
So here's what happened:
I tried my hand a LF wigs and since I use growth aids, I didnt glue. Just used bobby pins and the straps and combs. Well this day, I went to work and did not pin it down, just tightened the straps and went on in. It takes about 8 minutes from my office to my car with hundreds of people walking out of the gates at the same time. This evening the wind was high. To the point that I had to lean in to make progress walking.
I was holding my purse on my shoulder and my lunch bag in my hand trying not to look stupid with my legs blowing to the side because of the wind when a gust blows and feel my wig loosen . I have my hair underneath in month old braids to the back, no wig cap (I knoooow). So I grab it really quick to keep it on.. I hear an older guy say 'HOLD ON TO IT, BABY, HOLD IT! WE AINT MAD ATCHA GAL' OOOH EM GEE!!
So I look over and there is this older guy, welder maybe, and a cutie walking next to him. I'm thinking this thing is going to take flight before I get to my car. The younger cutie walks up to me trying to 'introduce' himself while I'm in damage control mode. I'm walking as fast as my little legs can carry me, looking like Velma on Scooby Doo. Laughing and crying on the inside.
Needless to say, I carry bobby pins in my purse when I do the wig thing.
omg. wth, why not? now i've always said i never wore a weave, but at one point in the 8th grade my mom made me wear one. it wasn't a whole wig, it was a phony pony. anyway, the lunch bell rang, and me and my classmates started running to the cafeteria (yes, running, yal know how kids are). i was just running out of my class building doors, when i heard some boys laughing really loud, and saw my friend slip from the corner of my eye. i keep going cuz i was really hungry (and greedy lol) and ran all the way to the cafeteria. well i get in line and i'm standin there thinkin everything is cool, and my stupid friend comes runnin in the cafeteria waving that black ponytail in the air tombout "jasmine, your hair, your hair!" i was mortified! i quickly just stuffed it in my bookbag and pretended like nothing happened. and to make matters even worse, what she had slipped on was my hair! i was so freakin ashamed. i ever wore a weave again after that, and even though i wanna try kinky twists and stuff, i am just scared to death that it will fall out and embarrass me.
omg the camping story is so funny i got hot and had to turn the fan on!
I'm over here crying laughing! I needed this laugh today.
Just when I thought I had worked up the courage to try a wig..........un-un.
LMAO this thread made my day!
"You would think someone would say: 'Char. Your wig love, your wig'. . ."
Yes! She had me rolling! I dont know if its the accent or the braids or what but yeah....that was too much for me!
BUMP! BUMP! BUMP!
I just bought my first half wig yesterday, and after reading this thread, I put it back in the box and in the back of the closet!
OMGGGG you almost killed me. here i am eating my delicious water melon and i almost cracked my teeth with my fork after readin the bolded part!
OP thanks for starting this thread!!!
awwww...dont deprive us of one more amazing story. wear it wear it wear it....
I LOOOVE this thread, me an my DH are gonna have some good laughs in here! LMAO!! I dont have a story to add but the story that killed it for me was the one about the phony pony and how the friend slipped on it. I nearly died! I can just imagine what that looked like! They should put that in a cartoon! My mom is looking at me like i'm insane cause i'm sitting here dying.
These stories are great. They are also great examples of why I'm so afraid to try a wig, even though there is the beautiful one at the store. That and, I don't want to look like all the girls at work who have one on...and then you can see their ponytail at the base of their neck sticking out or poofing the back of the wig up in a weird way..
I am soooo sick but this was sooo funny. THanks for bumping!
bUmPiNg for fun
It was my birthday and I decided to wear a cute long ponytail out I had just bought. I decided to go to the strip club with my girls to celebrate. After 4 too many, I got coaxed onto the stage. One twirl around the pole and weeeeeeeeeeeee...
One of the guys caught it and gave it back to me.
Boyfriend at the time took it off and dash it in the back of the car he hated wigs
Laughing at this thread, ok here is mine.
This was back in 2000 before I knew anything about LHCF so my hair was a hot mess. My hair just been hacked off by a stylist into some soup bowl styled messed. I was devastated. She said it was damaged but why you got to cut it like that. So I never went back to that hair dresser again. Coincidentally that hair dresser was recommended to me by my aunt. Well one day my aunt decided to have something at her house. And I decided I would get my first wig and wear it there. It was long and pretty with bangs. I didn't know much about wigs. Like that you was supposed to put on a cap, and how to correctly put in the combs, nor about the bands inside of them. So my hair was just HAM under the cap, just threw it on. So I went to my aunts house, and she complimented me on my hair and I felt real good about it, I later wondered if what happened is because I was feeling myself too much . So later I am helping her cook in the kitchen. And she asks me to get something out of the lower cabinet. So I do it . The pan was way in the back to the side. So I go in a little to get it. Well, I hit the top of my head going in. Girl, the wig in the front of my head had done came off, and was floating off my head. The only thing holding on still was the combs at the neck part. I tore outta that kitchen so fast. So I am running ya'll , I run out the kitchen, through the dinning room, through the living room, and through the TV room. I know they was like WTH?
So the whole time I am running I am trying to get the darn thing back down in the front. But also to my horror, my aunt is chasing me talking about, WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! I wasn't gonna stop until I at least got the front part back down. So as I get to the hall where the guest bathroom is located, I finally stop. So she comes up to me and is like 'where you going?' and I am like "to the bathroom" (all the while feigning that I had to pee bad). So she says 'girl when somebody tells you to wait in they house, you wait!" Then she goes "my bathroom is a mess I need to clean it up". perplexed So she goes and cleans the bathroom all the while, I am hoping no one else comes, and hoping that she hadn't noticed my wig was very off kilter. So she FINALLY comes out and says I could go in now. Needless to say I never wore that wig again, and I was afraid to wear one for years. I never wore one again till about 3 years ago.
I have having some "fun" in mi bathroom with mi fiance at the time and he picked mi up with mi back against the door and when he finally tried to put mi down I yelled STOP STOP and I busted out laughing. He was like what..he looked up and mi curly weave ponytail was caught up in the hook (where you might hang a coat up on but is plastic and you can put it over the door). He ended up having to take the whole ponytail out mi head and it was hanging on the hook.
I have already contributed a wig story but sad for me I had a bad wig night just last night. My man and I were having wild wild wild sex and he was trying to get me into this weird position and I wasn't catching on. He showed me how, by pulling the back of my wig up and off my head even though I had secured it with many bobby pins, it came flying off. I was moaning right before this. We continuled to have wild sex, and I asked him the same question as before, Why did you do that? I said that was real ignorant right there. He said I DON'T CARE! I was getting done out of my mind but I still put that wig back on, I know that!
Same man. Same wig. Same brown liquor incident.
Golden1 - mama, u need to give that wig up! U know he don't like it!! ;-)
