It's never too hot for a weave/wig.

Completely depends on you. Personally, I'm getting quality hair so that my daily cowashing doesn't affect my install.

I'm in Atl, too. I'm surprised that I can handle the heat with my half wig. One thing that I do is alternate regularly between wearing my real hair and my half wig. Now I tried wearing a lace front and that was a bit too hot. It had a bang, too. I will have to save that for the winter or something...

for me the half wig is great, the full wig is HOTTTT! the lace front that is off my neck isn't too bad. I can't handle full wig with bang or long wig.

But the rest are okay.

I live in Miami, it is super hot and humid one min, then its windy and pouring down with rain the next. So it all depends on my mood and the weather, but I usually just wear braids or keep my hair up during the summer.

Girl, says who?? All weaves/wigs don't have to be long and hot. I live in Texas and weaves are my summer protective style.

Get yourself a bob weave like I do (or a wig)







it was cut from a longer weave that was like 10/12 inches halfway through the 3 months

I'm half-wigging it to BSL this summer. It can get hot under there but I can always take it off when I get home.

Maybe a little extra heat will help the growth spurt :

Ah, mixed responses here, thank you all for replying . I should have added a poll really; is there a way I can go back and do that? Otherwise nevermind.

I was thinking of getting a long thick straight style with a fringe (bangs), Nicki Minaj style:

Would that be OK, or should I save it for the autumn (fall)?

I live in sweltering Miami and it's too hot for my real hair - short bob. When I look at women wearing wigs/weaves here I get hot LOL!

i always tell folks to go for what they want WHEN they want. The only time I was ridiculously hot in weave when I was shopping in the outdoor markets in Nigeria. If you get it installed well, you can put it up on a bun or ponytail if you get hot. I guess i'm just used to folks even in hot Texas wearing long weaves all year and not having a problem.

I have a wig with a bang like that. My sis has a wig exactly like the one you posted. she just wore it to work. I personally like wigs like that for summer. Winter to me is really windy and I don't like my bangs flying all over the place.

That bob is on point! I was looking for a bob to wear EXACTLY like that one. What type of hair did you begin with? Was it a sew in or a wig?

As long as the hair is not in your face, I think its fine. I've had issues with the hair in the face thing with a weave. New at the hw thing, but primarily wear for work so there's a/c. Thinking about a bob lace front. Nichi that cut is HOTTTTT!!! Got me thinking about some hair I got sitting at home.
