TRYING NEW THINGS
Remember when I said, you are not your circumstances and that everything happens for a reason? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, catch up here. Some of you know that I dislocated my shoulder nearly 4 weeks ago. My main objective with this obstacle was to remain positive and faithful throughout my recovery. Within the recovery phase of a dislocated shoulder, you pretty much have to simplify your daily routines such as your pampering system.
Due to low strength and weak muscles in my left arm, I can’t really style my natural hair. Because I have super curly locks, my routine isn’t necessarily the quickest to complete. Due to 80% shrinkage, I have a unique process to stretch my curls but with my dislocated shoulder, my regimen is altered until my arm has fully healed.
Seek the good in everything, even the negative situations because that’s when you discover a new strength and exciting adventures.
While I’m able to wash, condition and place my hair in four jumbo braids by myself with both arms after two weeks, I’m still not able to fully style it into a cute look. I don’t know about you but I always feel like my #OOTD is complete with set hairstyle. But all is not lost, as I always say, everything happens for a reason and don’t be afraid to embrace the unknown. My dislocated shoulder has really opened different opportunities for me.
Late June to early July, literally a couple of weeks after I hurt my arm, my family and I vacationed in southern Texas. I was grateful that I completed gentle exercises before departure of our family trip because it gave me the opportunity to not wear my sling during most of the day. Still managing to wash and condition my hair without stressing my arm, I wasn’t able to style my hair to the fullest extent so my younger sister suggested I wear wig.
I thought to myself, “oh I don’t know, I might look funny in a wig…” Chanel was like, “just try it…”
Knowing how limited I was to styling my natural hair, I decided to give the wig a try because ultimately I wanted to feel and look put together on vacation. Let me tell you, I’m so glad I did because not only was the wig convenient to my physical situation but it brought out my adventurous side.
Style: MLF217 Lyna | Sleek Color: TT1B/D Teal
First off, this post is not sponsored. I’m just sharing a new experience with you and hopefully bring you inspiration in trying something new for yourself. My goal is to encourage you to become your best version and explore different options by taking advantage of unique situations.
On a side note, I dropped my phone and cracked the screen. Pardon the random glow on the pictures but it still shows off the style and cut of the wig. With that being said, check out my review!
My younger sister Chanel purchased the Bobbi Boss Lyna Teal Bob Cut Wig at our local beauty supply store. Be sure to click the non-affiliated link for a cheaper price! It’s kinda funny because weeks before I dislocated my shoulder, I convinced her to buy this wig because I thought the color was pretty and the cut was edgy. She tried it on and didn’t really like it, so she stored the wig away. Weeks later, I dislocated my shoulder, she saw me struggling to do my hair in prep for family vacation and suggested I wear the teal wig. #EverythingHappensForAReason.

I never envisioned myself with teal hair. How exciting was it to color my hair without a full commitment! I always receive tons of compliments every time I wear this wig. My mother says the color changes in the light to a greenish tint, so it’s like I get two looks in one. SCORE!
The big question, would I buy this again? YES! I had fun rocking a a teal bob, it made me feel liberated and adventurous 🙂
As the common theme flows on my blog, everything happens for a reason and embrace the unknown. Dislocating my shoulder gave me a reason to try on a wig. I would have never worn a wig because I simply felt no need to but carrying nothing but positive energy helped me change this obstacle into a fascinating opportunity. I stepped out my comfort bubble and explored my rocker side without risking my natural locks and that’s a plus for me! This experience paved the way for me to try even more new things and embrace a bolder side of myself.
What do you think of the wig? Have you worn a wig before? Is a wig something your would try one day? What’s something new you tried that has made you a bolder person?
