    Whew! My hair reverted, y’all! I just washed my hair with Nioxin shampoo (idk my husband buys it so that’s what I use) and DC’d with TGIN honey hair mask. Then I braided my hair with Shea Moisture JBCO leave in and sealed with whipped shea butter.

    My hair is moisturized and ready for my wig! Straight hair was fun for a while but I am so ready to go back to my lace front again! I love not worrying about my natural hair getting caught on my jacket zipper or rubbing on my sweater. Wigs really are liberating in a way.

    Milano collection wigrip from amazon. Its around twenty dollars, but it is amazing. Whats great about wig grips is that they hold your scraves on too! No more slipping head scarves either.

    And yeas it will fit a watermelon head. Lol

    I did but some generic wig grips. Once i try them out i will put the word out.

    I love it!! She looks absolutely lovely on you! And so natural. I used to have Model Model Joy which is a very similar wig to Heaven. I wore that baby to DEATH. And I got so many compliments. Nobody had a clue it wasn’t mine. You got me wanting to reorder... hmm

    Thanks!

    I keep seeing posts with Model Model Joy and I agree that they look very similar! I definitely have to keep that in mind as I like natural looking wigs--the mermaid hair trend is not my thing. You definitely should reorder....just to have it in your collection!

    Amazon find. Colodo lace front wig. The density is great, not bulky at all.

    Joining!!!

    How long do you plan on wigging it?

    4 ever!

    How will you take care of your hair while using the wig/phony pony?
    I now have a formidable collection of spray bottles and dropper bottles for my DIY stuff, along with a nice collection of spritzes for everything from protein to prepoo! Basically I spray everything :lachen:
    I stay in cornrows for 4-6 weeks, wear my hair out for 1-2 weeks (if I can, otherwise more like a day or two), then braid and wig it back up!

    Natural, Relaxed, Texlaxed, Transitioning:

    Natural


    Current Hair Length:

    Between APL and BSL


    2018 Hair Length Goal:

    This challenge has made me purge wigs that I am not wearing

    Just wanted to inform you since I noticed you blacked out your eye potion. When I opened the photo to see your wig I can see you clearly the blacked out photo, the regular photo, and some other photos. Informing you so you can edit if you wish.

    I said I would post pics next time I took my hair down. I did my best. I’m not a wiz at pasting and linking. I pressed my hair, but it’s not heat trained so it didn’t get truly straight sorry.


    ETA. Yeah, I’m not such a dimwit at this. The link shows three pics. Now to twist my hair and back to the dark gray/black ombré wig.

    My hair has been cornrowed for the last 4 weeks but I haven't had to rock a wig yet because I don't go out. It's been too darn cold! My hair stays under my satin skull cap and a bandana. Prepping to texlax next week so I'll be posting a starting pic soon.

    Gotta crop out these newly acquired back rolls tho. :( Lol.
