African American Women Look Natural?

"Which straight wigs for African American women look natural?"

Several textures of wigs for African American women provide an authentic look. Curly textured wigs are an obvious choice, but if curls aren't your thing, then have a look at the straight options below.

Kinky Straight Wigs for African American Women

The texture resembles Afro hair that has been blow dried straight and although we say straight, it's um... well not exactly a faithful description as although there aren't any curls, or waves, there are what you might call very small...um...well... kinks.

The Afro Straight look (as we like to call it over here in good ol' Blighty) is popular and available in a broad range of colours that complement a range of skin tones and lengths.

Caring for Kinky Straight Wigs

Follow the top tips below for combing styling and moisturising your kinky straight hair to keep it in tip-top condition:

Detangle kinky straight hair with fingers first, starting at the ends of the hair and working upwards and avoid tugging at the hair when brushing or combing.

Use lower heat setting for heat styling to preserve the lifespan of the hair.

Keep the hair moisturised daily with oil free sprays or moisturizers without mineral oils. There are plenty of plant-based oils for hair that provide nourishment African American textured wigs.

Yaki Straight Wigs for African American Women

There are variations of the Yaki straight texture such as light Yaki, Italian Yaki, or relaxed hair but the essence of the Yaki straight texture is that it looks and feels like Afro hair that has been chemically heat straightened (relaxed).

Overall it has great movement and looks like an authentic texture that would be achievable with natural Afro hair.
