My Holy Grail WIG!

Outre “Quick Weave” style “Tammy” color 1B/30

 

The picture above is me rocking one of my FAVORITE wigs!! I have been wearing her since 2009. And with the particular style, it only gets better with time. It starts off somewhat silky, but after week 3 it becomes more full, and kinky in texture! LOVE IT!!! For years I have been wearing this style in a 1B.. So this past weekend, I asked if they had my girl in any other color schemes.. and “bet cha by golly wow!!!” THEY DID!!!! When I tell you I was up in the beauty supply store hitting the DOUGIE! I ain’t lying!! LOL!!!! This is an AWESOME protective style. I will literally not touch my hair for 2 months, while wearing this. The care of my actual hair underneath wig is simple. I would co wash my hair (while in braids) apply the LOC method and let it air dry. Once this is complete, then the wig goes back on my head. Length retention is no question while rocking this. The front of my head is done in loose flat twist, to protect my edges.. I have lost them before, when I was an avid braid wearer. I am NOT trying to lose my edges again! LOL! Tammy is only $19.99, and for those who are afraid to color their tresses (Raises hand, I) This is a great alternative for you! I am REALLY feeling this hair color on me, and LAAAWWDDDDD knows I wanna spice up my natural hair, but I’m afraid it will break off, with a permanent color.. So maybe I’ll look for a semi permanent color that resembles… Hmmm I don’t know.. But yes ladies, I just wanted to share my “HOLY GRAIL” of wigs with you all!! There is one other follower of mine who I believe wears the same style and it’s also her holy grail wig as well!! Great minds think alike!!! I love you all and HAPPY GROWING! MUAHHH!!!

LOCO Method bka “LOC”

Hello my lovelies! This is a method I’ve been using for years in regards to my 4B/4C hair! I will go out on the limb and say this is partly why my hair is able to retain length. ENJOY! EDUCATE yourself! And HAPPY GROWING!

Wash Day Regime

Hello Beautiful Natural, Transitioning, and Relaxed ladies!!! In this post I will go into detail about my every 2 week wash regime. 

 

If I’m coming out of a protective style I first use a ACV (apple cider vinegar) rinse to get rid of potential product build up. I use 3 tbsp to 6 cups of water, I pour over my head and massage, the action of the massaging loosens up any product or dirt from scalp. Once this is done I let it sit for about 4 mins. Completely rinse out with cool water, then I proceed with the following steps. 

I will say this. I only SHAMPOO my hair once a month, and when I do it I use Carol Daughters “Tui Moisturizing Shampoo” which contains NO Parabens, No Petroleum, No Mineral Oil, nor Artificial Colors. For an 8oz bottle I paid  $13.00. It’s well worth it. 

 

Every 2 weeks here is my routine. 

I Pre-Poo with Carol Daughter’s “Hair Milk co-wash cleansing conditioner” retail price is $18.00. After I’m done with my pre-poo I rid of excess wetness with an over sized tee shirt. I then proceed with the LOC method..  For my oil I use EVOO or Coconut Oil, and my water based “cream” would be Carol’s Daughter “Hair Milk Leave In Moisturizing conditioner” or The Mane Choice “Hair Butter” I pay especially close attention to my ends, with that being the oldest of hair growth. The KEY to length retention is to make sure those ends are in tip top shape! Every 3 days or so If I’m wearing a protective styling I will “bag” up my ends. 

My regime is pretty simple, at the current moment I am not gonna really let my hair go free in wash and goes because I’m trying to preserve as much length as possible! So for the next 6 months I will be rocking my half wigs! Underneath them will be 2 stands twist or braids. I hope this has helped you my loves! Anymore questions, please e-mail me, or comment below! And ALWAYS remember!! If you love your hair, it will GROW! TLC is all it needs! #HappyGrowing
