I refreshed my wig last night. I love these human/synthetic hybrid wigs. They last a lot longer! I am excited to wear my wig this weekend.

Is there any way to turn a full wig into a half wig or U part? I just got a new wig and I hate the bangs. Please tell me this wig can be saved. It is synthetic, kinky straight texture about 20 inches with little chinese bangs :(

Girl I have no idea but I'm sure you can YouTube it to see.

Revamped another wig. It looks like new and much more realistic! Will try to remember to post a pic later.

Eta: added pics. For some reason I'm struggling with the part on this one. Need to fix it.

Alright, here are the last set of wigs for the year: Ms. Tracy (fro) & Ms. Badu (straight).

I have thoroughly enjoyed this challenge and thanks to the great tips in this thread, I have been able to keep me hair moisturized, retain length, and keep my edges in good shape.

I am doing braids, twists and updos next year, so you won't see me in 2015. Happy & Healthy Hair Journey Ladies!!!

Question:

How are you ladies taking care of your hair under your wigs? How often are you doing your wash/dc process? I am thinking of cutting back washing to once every two weeks again like I used to. I might only touch my hair on those two days per month, but I want to still moisturize my hair.

1. Each morning, I apply a creamy moisturizer and oil my edges with JBCO/HBCO & a butter.

2. Every other night, I spritz my hair with a liquid leave in, seal with oil and baggy overnight.

3. Every two weeks, I pre-poo, shampoo my scalp, co-wash the length of my hair, apply a reconstructor, do an ACV rinse, add a moisturizing conditioner (leaving ~75% of it in), & dry in plaits. When ~80% dry, I use the LOC method and braid my hair down until the next wash session.

I hope this helps!

Thanks trclemons! Do you wear single braids or cornrows?

I wash once a week. I put about 9 cornrows in my hair. I moisturize with a cream and seal with an oil once. During the week, I use a moisturizing spray and I put oil around my edges.

Hey! I'm a natural. I deep condition my hair every weekend & alternate with blow drying & flat ironing depending on the wig hair style. I also do my aphogee treatment every 6 weeks. My hair is braided underneath & I spray with water/almond oil in a bottle. I put mango butter & castor oil on my edges. I keep my eye on that & wear a nylon stocking underneath the wig.

The weekends I blow & straighten I give the wig a break & wear my hair out a few days. Doing that now.

Okay ladies I ordered some Burmese deep curly in 18in, 20in, & 22in with a 16in closure from one of the ladies on BHM who is a stylist that was going into business to start selling hair. Please dont ask me for prices as she does have a price list and I was interested solely in this hair. I will include her info below if you'd like to inquire. Anyway I placed my order on Nov 14th and she had an issue with her wefter which she did give me options. I chose to wait for my hair as the pictures she sent me of previous hair was beautiful. She was very professional the whole time and kept me updated on my order. I love superb customer service. I'm so glad I waited. She made me a stunningly gorgeous unit out of the hair I ordered. When I tell you ladies this hair is bomb I mean it is bomb. Of course I'll give another review once I wear the hair and see how it behaves. I cowashed the hair when I rcvd it with suave hemuctant moisture con and used a tiny bit of shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie then let it air dry a little before diffusing. The curls are just breathtaking. I cannot explain it in other way. Anyway pics below are of the hair wet after cowashing and then the last two is the hair dry and me with it on. Sorry for the no makeup face but I was too excited. The stylist info is Chevel Johnson anf her email address is [email protected]
I'm telling you that you wont be disappointed in this hair.

I did this challenge in tandem with the Apl challenge. End of the year results:



I'll do both challenges again for 2015 because I haven't reached my goals yet.

I'm so out of it! Lol the brands are Its a cap wig, sensationnel and I can't think of the other one. Those run small and fit perfect! They are really snug and I don't need pins or clips.

Hey Ladies,
I have been hard core wigging. Had to stop wearing the regular nylon wig cap. It was sucking all the moisture from my hair everyday. Im wearing the dome cap now because the satin material keeps the moisture locked in. Had to cut slits around the edges bc the elastic is so tight on my big head lol!

I will straighten and trim on Friday and post LC pics. Anyhow, here is my latest wig

Sensationnel LF edge
The name is easy 5 ocean

shortdub78, a french braid. I'm gonna do my absolute best to not wear buns all that much. You know I'm forever doing experiments. I want to see if buns is causing strain on my hemline. I never make my buns tight but still, I want to see if my hemline grows differently if I do away with the frequent wearing of buns.
