Everybody knows the Braxton sisters love yaki, and baby sister Tamar appears to be the most devoted wearer. For the overthetop.com reality TV star, wigs and weaves are all about versatility and fun—and most importantly, keeping her natural hair healthy, she says.
“I have become a slave to the wig and the weaves,” she told Essence.com. “I love the quickness and the fullness. Plus I would never dye my hair because it falls out like a bolt of lightning.”
She added that her number one priority, regardless of whether she rocks a weave or wig, is healthy hair. “When I do wear a weave, I don’t keep it for a long time and I make sure my own hair is braided and very well moisturized. I also don’t put any chemicals in my hair.”
Tamar makes a good point. Many women neglect their natural tresses when wearing weaves but it’s important to let your own hair breathe every once and a while and keep it conditioned as well. So how exactly does Tamar decide which of her many wigs—which have their own special section in her closet—to wear on any given day? It just depends on her mood, she said.
“Whether I wear my hair straight or curly really just depends on how I feel. If I feel like I want to be a little more glamorous, I will wear it straight. If I’m feeling a little flirty, I’ll wear it curly but my favorite wig is the straight one with bangs and blonde highlights.”
