Milly said that the wig she wore that night cost about Sh100,000 from Medigah London Hair.

She said that modern-day wigs are of a superior quality, asking Kenyans who criticise wigs to embrace the new hair products that are in the market.

Before wigs like these came to the market, there were those that would get destroyed by rain. In the past people have had very bad experiences with hair but now we have hair from MLH which is an expensive HD lace wig,” she said.

On her part, Mugure said that the most expensive wig in her collection was worth about $4,000 (Sh580,000).

Speaking about the stigma around women who wear wigs, she said that wigs help women pull off different kinds of looks.

“People think that if you wear a wig you are ashamed of your natural hair. I have never understood that. I think a wig is just a different hairstyle. Just like I was wearing braids last week, I am wearing a wig today and I’ll wear another one tomorrow,” she said.

During the launch, MLH Co-founders Barbara Medigah and Cedrick Tedong said that the new app could reshape the world of women's fashion.

Our mission to unite the beauty community, simplify the shopping experience, and elevate product quality is poised to transform the local beauty industry.

“Medigah London Hair is committed to excellence and innovation, symbolizing a transformative journey that will leave an indelible mark on Nairobi's beauty scene and beyond," they said.
