In the January 21
Cardi was joined by friends Kway and Tokyo Stylez in the design of the wigs, where all three learned to weigh and “chop” the human hair that was imported from India, which is then hand-tied to individual “tissues”. Finally, the fabrics are sewn in bundles, which are then processed into full wigs.
Once Cardi better understood the painstaking process of making the wigs, she was ready to do something good with her newfound knowledge. So she worked with the staff at Giovanni & Son to put a Cardi B-spin on some wigs that went to people with cancer.
“This is going to be a little girl – I want to see the pictures and all because I made this with love,” Cardi said as he wrapped a finished pink-striped wig. And the clip of 11-year-old Khloe opening a Cardi B-made wig makes you sob.
“Wigs are expensive,” Cardi said at the end of the episode. “I’m very happy that the wig I made today – with a little help, you know what I’m saying – will be donated. I hope it goes to someone very special.”
It certainly did. Khloe was in tears as she tried on the wig, as did we. “It’s pink,” she said through her tears. “Thank you very much. This is so nice.”
We’re crying. You’re crying. It’s just an emotional moment we did not see coming.
