First wig!!

I made this wig on weds night. I used 2 packs of Kanubia brand hair, a wig cap and bonding glue. It took me awhile to make bc I started and stopped. I shouldve taken pics of me in the process but here's the finished results. This hair is synthetic and its starting to frizz slightly but oh well! The next one I'm going to attempt to make will be a straight hair one w an invisible part

1st blow out

Ok this is on my birthday. I didn't really care for the blow out and my hair was still puffy. I took more pics but on my camera which came out better bc I had to re-straighten my hair which flattened it a bit more. I also took some length shots and did a much needed trim. Ill try to post these ASAP. I'm thinking of doing it again for xmas but idk.

Jan marks my 1st year of achieving better hair care and as I semi reflect I need to go bac to the things I did in the beginning which really made a difference and I think for the remainder of my pregnancy I'm going to keep my hair in protective styles lik the box braids I had with my natural hair. Ill do those again after the holidays

No maintenance

For the last month or so I've had my hair in this box braids. Been meanin to post this pics. This is about 2 wks ago when I cowashed my hair I decided to take some pics w my hair wet. It took me about 2 hours to do these braids and more than tht to take it out. I'm currently doin that. I like this style bc it is no maintenance and thts wht I need right now in my life.
This month is my birth month and I wanted to get a blow out for my birthday just to see my length, my little sis comes home and gets them all the time and it looks FAB so I'm curious. My dilemma however is tht I just found out I'm preggo w TWINS, yes twins and I'm not sure if I want to put that much stress on my tresses. I'm only about 11 wks and I figure its still early but idk I'm thinking about it. Ill post more pics once I get these braids out and wash my hair. I'm not sure if I'm due for a length check but ill probably do one any way

Something new

I decided to do something basic but still protective w my hair. I was browsing YouTube the other day and came across a great time progression video of her hair growth. She had done a lot of box braids as her grew, so I figured y not do the same. I did these braids 2 nights ago and I think tonight I'm going to attempt the baggy method. Its moisturizing ur hair or ends if u choose, sealing w an oil and then wearing a plastic cap to retain the moisture. The results r suppose to b great and immediately noticeable, so I'm gonna give it a try.

My puff, I love this thing. I think I enjoy it bc its gives me the hope of one day having a puff this grand. I'm so disappointed in myself, I started off so string w this hair thing and now its practically nonexistent. I think I went too strong in the beginning and didn't factor in my hectic schedule. I think tonight I'm gonna do a protein treatment while I study and then baggy my ends. In the am since I have no class I'm gonna box braid my hair and hopefully that will last for awhile. Unfortunately I did kinky twist my hair w extension but tht didn't last, I did them too big and ugly like lol

Half wig

Well I just got put on to half wigs and I thnk they r great. This is the 2 one tht I've had. Its a great way to let ur hair rest and u can remove it whenever u feel the need. Underneath my hair is in big braids. This school year I want to keep my hair in a protective style just bc I don't want to deal w doing it every day.

Probably next week I will put my hair back in the kinky twists that I had before. I really want to get a blowout from the Dominicans and I think I might do tht for my birthday in Nov.

Excuse the shiny forehead lol. I usually wear a headband or use a cut stocking as a headband where the wig lays just to kind if cover it and add style
