I used to hate wigs now I love them!!

For the longest time, I used to hate wigs like absolutely hated wigs, like I will burn a wig on sight if I saw a wig in front of me. Then one day I was panicking how to style my hair for my brothers’ wedding, I wanted long hair for the wedding. Didn’t want to get a sew-in because I didn’t want to spend money on a sew-in, nor did I want to sit in someone’s chair for X amount of hours. That’s when I found a YouTube user who goes by TheHeartsandcake90, she is awesome a beautiful and humble girl. Her channel is all about wigs, makeup etc. You guys have to follow her she is awesome I love her channel. She doesn’t need any help from me promoting her she has a huge following already. But I love supporting people who are real. 

After spending hours on TheHeartsandcake90 YouTube channel. I went to the nearest beauty supply store and spent 4-8 hours just looking and trying on wigs. Once I found a wig I went back to TheHeartsandcake90 channel and learned how to put on a wig properly to make it look natural, learned about plucking the part, and the elastic band method. I basically eliminated all my ignorance about wigs and really educated myself. So it is safe to say I love wigs!

Recently I have invested in two full lace human hair wigs, which is pricey but for me worth the investment. I have been stalking this website called WowAfrican for years and watched reviews of their wigs on YouTube. Finally, after months of stalking. I finally purchased a wig from WowAfrican. One wig I bought myself and another wig as a gift. Once I received these wigs, I will make a post about my thoughts on both wigs and the website.

If you want to checkout WowAfrican website click on WowAfrican.

If you want to checkout TheHeartandcake90 YouTube channel just click on her name. You can also follow her on her IG @ifancycupcakes, and her Facebook page by clicking on her name TheHeartsandcake90.

P.S. I am not paid by WowAfrican to promote their website, the wig I purchased was with my own money, and given to me as a gift from a family member. Also, I am a regular YouTube user and I am not in any way in partnership with Heartandcake90. I am a fan of hers and love watching her reviews, and makeup tutorials that is all. Like I said before I support individuals, who I feel are real and who channels I frequently visit a lot.

If you know of other websites that have good synthetic wigs and full lace human hair wigs, please leave a comment below. Thank you for visiting my blog. ✌🏾✌🏾✌🏾

 

It has been way too​ long.

Long time no post!!! Yup life has been crazy with responsibilities. I hope everyone who is reading this is doing well and getting ready to wrap up 2017 and head into 2018 with a new outlook and positivity. As for me, I am planning to make a major decision that will make 2018 a bang, and a totally new start. Like always see you guys at the next post and make sure to leave a comment below!!!

Would you do this for laid edges? 

😳😳 Soooooo I just seen a YouTube video of a young lady, relaxing the perimeter of her head to have laid edges. Just her edges are relaxed but the rest of her hair is still natural. I understand that edge control doesn’t work for everyone, but is it really that serious? Watch the video below and let me know your thoughts below by leaving a comment below.

Is it all in the head?

I have been getting a lot of follow invites both on Twitter and Instagram about hair supplements. Even some of my good friends have tried to get me to join their Hairfinity 30 day, challenges which I am always declining. My question do these hair growth supplements like Hairfinity really work, or is this a placebo effect? Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below. 

 

  

Natural Hair Bloggers and Vloggers.

I Love supporting natural hair vloggers and bloggers. But when they start pushing a lot of products, or when I see a parade of products as their background when watching a YouTube video. It just makes me want to unsubscribe. I rather subscribe and support a bloggers or vloggers who has a main product that he or she uses as a main staple product. Me personally I can’t believe what your saying or trying to push because a company is paying you to use their product, to me your words are being purchased and bought. That’s just my opinion, let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Curl Power

So the Today Show has this new segment they have been doing all week long titled “Curl Power” by Dove. When I saw this segment I became excited, that the Today Show will be talking about curly hair which means they will talk about natural hair. Well peeps so far I have been disappointed once again. So far in each segment I have only seen women with looser curly hair on each segment mostly Caucasian women, Hispanic women, and Biracial women. Which is nothing wrong with that, I love seeing women of all races embrace their natural hair. I just wish and was hoping to see an African-American woman who have kinky coily hair, be feature on the segment as well. Having and African-American woman with tighter curl or coils embracing her natural hair. Would have spoken loudly for the African-American community, because of the serious issue of hair among our community. Recently I twitted out my concern about the Today Show segment, using the hash tag #CurlPower. Below is the response I received from Dove.

I didn’t respond back to Dove because in my mind I was like okay cool Dove saw my response, and probably would make a point to feature women with different type of curly hair. But I was wrong again, today’s segment was more of the same. My question is what is it about coily kinky hair, that us kinky hair chicks can’t get equal representation on TV, or even in the stores when it comes to hair products? Yes I know we have natural hair bloggers and vloggers, but I will like and hope to see more people who have hair like me in mainstream media rocking their natural kinky hair. Please leave comment below, I really want to hear your thoughts on this.

What’s Your Protective Routine?

IMG_6576.JPG
This is my protective style when I am in the house, noooo I don’t go out like this lol!!!

While I was transitioning I was never one who cared about this whole protective style hoopla. I will just washing my hair, put in leave-in conditioner, put on my silk bonnet on and call it a day. As I was repeatedly doing this horrible routine I notice minor breakage, and I was waisting my time doing my hair causing me to be late for work. So I decided okay I’m going to take this protective style serious, if I want my long hair back. I started to properly wash my hair and seal the moisture in and twisting my hair at night. As I woke up in the morning to get ready for work, styling my hair was not a hassle. But I notice twist outs were not working for me, my twist outs never came out right. I remember reading a blog that someone said depending your curl pattern of your hair, twist outs may not be a good option for you so try braid outs. So I decided to braid my hair as my protective style, once I did my braid out. Let my tell you I was soooooo freaking happy with the results. I just stared in the mirror for 10 minutes and was like ooh I can style my hair like this, I can do a half up half down look, so many quick pinup options. I was so happy with my braid out results, but most importantly my curl pattern was so defined, my curls were poppin. I also notice ever since I incorporated a protective style routine, I keep my hands out my hair a lot now, which for me is leading to less breakage. I also notice hair growth, I don’t know if that due to keeping my hair braided up or what. But length retention is my goal if I want tailbone length hair, protective style is the way for me!!! So at the end of the day protective styling is now a staple for me at all times. What is your protective style routine? Leave a comment below letting me know, I want to read your routines!!

Natural Hair Community!!!

So in 6 days I would have been fully natural for 4 months. So far my experience has been positive, I do get the occasional eye rolls and what the heck is going on with her hair? I have come across what I like to call the delusional black females who thinks the European standard of beauty is the right way, asking me why don’t you perm your hair? You will get more attention from guys and you will look better. Even with the negative opinions about my hair, I have gain so much inner humbling confidence in myself that it makes me sick lol. Also going natural has made me to learn how to do my own hair and learn different natural hairstyles, because I have no money to be paying someone to do my hair lol. With that said I have notice cracks in the natural hair community.

Me after two years of transitioning I did my own “big chop”.

Which has made me ask myself what is going on with the natural hair community these days? Why are we discriminating hair types? Is the hair typing system that crucial? Why do we have separation in the natural hair community? Why do some naturals feel the need to down people who choose to perm their hair? Why are naturals competing with each other on who has the best natural hair? These are some of the issues that I have notice since going natural, and I feel these issues will bring down the natural hair community. Please leave a comment below about what you think about the state of the natural hair community?
