WIG CHALLENGE 2010

Happy Holidays Ladies!

I'm starting the WIG CHALLENGE 2010 sign-up early!

TO ALL MY 2009 WIG CHALLENGERS - YOU WORE THOSE WIGS WITH FIERCENESS and ACHIEVED AMAZING GROWTH!

For any newcomers, the wig challenge is very EASY..........just wear a Full Wig, Half Wig, Fall (which is a phoney ponytail or bun), Lace, or a Lacefront as your PROTECTIVE STYLE of choice..................while taking care of your “real” hair underneath for maximum growth and hair health!

The WIG challenge blends with others challenges easily, such as the Bootcamp, Deep Conditioning, Scalp Massage, Hide Your Hair, or Low Manipulation, since your hair is safely tucked away from daily wear and tear.

The CHALLENGE GUIDELINES (hate the idea of rules, so let’s call them guidelines):
• The Challenge is in effect from Jan 1st - Dec 31st, 2010
• WIG means any full wig, half wig, full lace wig, or a lace fronts (anything that is NOT attached to your scalp like braided extensions or weave)
• Wigs are your protective style (most of the time), but you can take as many breaks as you want - just pull it off whenever you want to see and touch your hair!
• You MUST take care of your hair and scalp underneath (this challenge is about progress, not a styling crutch) your ultimate goal is healthy, long REAL hair!
• Keep in touch, ask questions, share advice and let us know how you're doing at least once per month!



Since the list of the current participants is huge and still growing, I will post it in the following two posts. Just pm me, to have your name added or removed!

Please feel free to post your regimen, progress updates, or any wig-related questions or comments. Also, please remember there is a wealth of information in the WIG CHALLENGE 2008 and 2009 threads.

Happy New Year and Happy Hair Growing!

I am rocking It Tresses "IVY" and Freetress Bali Girl (I don't really like this one but I bought it and I am going to wear it) So I am going to go back and pick up 2 more It Tresses "IVY" and look for another hair style. :)

I can't wait until wash day, huh, I just love to get under the dryer deep condition and pamper myself. LOL

Yes, I'll be back in come January. My transition was helped so much by my many, many wigs. I'll do it again to keep my progress and my additional 3 inches at least from Jan-June minimum; my Big Chop anniversary.

I forgot about this challenge last year but I just bought 2 new wigs last week in preparation for the 2010 challenge. I think bunning is too much manipulation for my hair so wigs are my new ps. I'll be french braiding under my wigs. I rotate washes and co-washes every 3 days.

I can do this. I just need to diversify my wig choices. I have worn a wig since May 1, 2009 and I can keep wearing a wig. I just need to keep my hair regimen tight and I should be OK.

My plan was to wig it until August. But now I'm scared. I think a small spot on my hairline broke off. I always took the combs out the wig and I would take it off as soon as I got home. My hairline doesnt look bad for the most part it looks full but my right temple is sore. I think it was because I wasnt changing where I put the bobby clips and I would brush my edges daily, something I never used to do. I was wearing the wig for six months. I wanna continue with it but I dont want my hairline to recede :(

Since you said your hairline overall is good then that spot is probably from undue stress,from putting the pins in the same place and the brushing. Maybe try brushing only to style the wig and placing the pins differently for a few days, if the soreness goes away then I'd say its a go .
