The Wig Thread

Y’all I’d tried the bald cap method and it was such a disaster!!!! The ladies doing the tutorial videos on YouTube make it look so easy but girl... when I tell u it was a disaster.. it wasAFREAKINGDEEESASTER!!!!!! I will have to go to a professional if I want a lace front.
I think I’m sticking with my half wigs. I’ll probably start wigging by the beginning of the year. I need to flat iron my hair and I need a cut (ends are terrible)
Poor Leggy Leg :lol: How did you get the stuff off? YouTube has sent me off quite a few times lol I quit trying to do styles and just admire them doing them.

I put some alcohol on a napkin and rubbed the crap out of forehead where the glue was LOL.. don’t do what I did though because I ended up getting a small scar.
If you have coconut oil and Nivea cream the blue tin.. that is what our family friend used on her daughter after boiling water fell on part of her daughter's arm during a kindergarten field trip. I had rec'd it as I had used it on a scar from hot water that fell on my tummy while making tea.

Her daughter had not been badly burnt miraculously but her mom alternated with aloe as far as I remember and it healed fast with no visible scars remaining.

I have never worn a wig and I am thinking of giving it a go! I saw a You Tuber names Kie Rashon with a bob wig from Hair Vivi. It’s not cheap but I want it!

I've been wearing this closure wig I made with raw hair and I'm loving that the hair resembles a blowout/ silk press texture. I lightly curled the hair for the first time yesterday. The curls have held well.2021-09-29_13.50.41.jpg

I seem to have developed an allergy to the glue or remover I was using:cry3:. Initially, I took allergy tabs and I've also been indulging in some skin care, that has thankfully been working fast to clear it up. Anyway, after researching best adhesives for sensitive skin, I came across pro.s ai.de. Been around since the dawn of time, but never come up on my radar before. So of course, I ordered it. I've done a skin test and I'm looking forward to trialling.

Where did you buy the hair?

I also make wigs now on my lil sewing machine. Using the Queen weave yaki. It's so good it doesn't tangle of mess up at all. But it doesn't hold curls well.

This hair has a natural loose curl/ wave, so I hoped holding curls would be less of a struggle, because I rarely wear hair without some kind of curl. I found a Cambodian vendor, after a whole lot of research and prayer that I wouldn't get scammed. Even though they look legit, I was legit worried when I realised the payment method I would need to use.

I tried to DM you.

Lol I'm not surprised if it's the payment method I'm thinking :lol:
