    Congratulations! What a wonderful, pleasant surprise for you to have. For how long did you have your sew in? How many inches do you think you gained? What was your hair routine?

    I ask because you are surprised by the current length of your hair. That tells me that you started out with less length. AND it tells me that your hair routine is very, very effective.

    Whatever you are doing, keep it up. From the looks of things, I believe you could well below bra-strap, with full, thick ends by the end of 2018.

    Bravo on your great progress, @Prettyeyes !

    Girl, I know exactly what you mean! I started out with synthetic wigs too.

    I think the Beshe “Drew” wig is just so so cute!
    Also, some of the units in this video are really cute! I love the wand curl one the most.

    I had crochet braids in for three months took those down, did not do a length check and then I had a sew in done left that in for one month. So I would guess I got three inches in 4 months. My regimen is the same as I was full BSL relaxed. Alot of moisturizing, sealing and deep conditioning. Hiding my hair helps it grow too. I hope to full BSL by the end of the year. I will straighten it this summer to do a length check and again at the end of the year.

    1. Like this post. Done

    2. How long do you plan on wigging it? January -April, June & October - December

    3. How will you take care of your hair while using the wig/phony pony? Massage scalp daily, DC weekly, alternate between weekly shampoo/cowash & LCOB, keep hair moisturized & GHE overnight during the fall/winter.

    4. Natural, Relaxed, Texlaxed, Transitioning: Natural

    5. Current Hair Length: MBL

    Ladies who own multiple wigs, how do you store them?

    Do you put them back in the box/bag and store them in a container or a trunk? Do you have a whole setup of wig heads on display like the BSS?

    I've been wearing bisa in the color 1B. I really like that shes not bulky or super thick. She's my winter wig.

    Once I'm ready to wear a wig, I take it out the package & place/keep it on a wig head.

    I keep them in the bag they came in and toss them in my wig drawer. If they came in a box, I usually put them in a Ziplock and store like that because the bag uses up less space. The wig I am wearing that week stays on a wig stand/styrofoam head on my dresser until I am ready to wear it.

    If you are interested in joining, please respond to the following:

    1. Like this post. Done :)

    2. How long do you plan on wigging it? Once I have about 6-7 weeks of new growth until my next relaxer. All year long.

    3. How will you take care of your hair while using the wig/phony pony?
    WIGS
    Biweekly redoing cornrows one-by-one, keeping the same parts.
    Weekly cleanse and DC.
    Daily M&S, sometimes twice per day with water rinse/cowash
    Daily apply scalp MT mix
    Always cover with mens satin skull cap under wig and when not wearing wig.

    PHONY PONY
    Not sure yet as this is my first time trying them.
    I'm thinking weekly wash, DC and style into ponytail. Not sure my ponytail will last more than a week without redoing.
    Spritz with spray bottle and then tie down with scarf to moisturize hair and refresh the look.

    4. Natural, Relaxed, Texlaxed, Transitioning: Texlaxed! :)

    5. Current Hair Length: Hard to tell. BSB

    6. 2018 Hair Length Goal: WL

    Keep them in the bag and put them in the hall closet.

    Rocking Hania today since I spent all day yesterday flat ironing my own hair for it to rain today.

    I keep them in the original bag they came in with the card name. If the wig came in a box I put the wig in a zip-lock bag and write the name on the bag myself. All the wigs are then stored in my office/spare bed room closet.

    Ordered two more wigs last night so I should be set until Feb/Mar. I ordered Outre Donna (thanks for posting the video in here its gorgeous) and Harlem 125 LSD09. I think for the Harlem wig i'm going to have to lightly flat iron it and spray it with some spritz

    I’ve been wearing this flatiron since Christmas Eve. It still looks great, probably because I used the Beautiful Textures system to straighten it. My plan is to trim with my Split Ender sometime this week before washing and getting my hair ready to go back under the wig.

    Pray that my hair reverts y’all!! Ahh

    My lace front wigs sit on wig heads in my laundry closet. My synthetic wigs are placed in their own bag.

    Which wig grip are y’all using? Where do you buy it from? Does it go in the wig or around your head? Also, will someone with a big head be able to wear it... asking for a friend :look: :lol:

    It's called GEX Beauty Flexible Velvet Wig Grip . I ordered it from Amazon (costs about $12), it goes around your head, and it is adjustable so it would fit someone with a big head.
