Over the past month or so I have been wearing my hair braided underneath my lacefront wig. This is going to be my protective style for a little while longer. I do not glue it down every day when I wear it. I do however glue the front hairline down and tie it with a scarf for a few minutes when I am going to be out or if the wind is blowing to keep it secure. Don't want the wind to blow the hairline up while in the middle of a conversation you know.. lol
I wash my lace wig every other day to keep it looking fresh. I have found that the hair on this wig really needs to be freshly washed sometimes daily or it gets really tangled. I condition with every wash using a deep conditioner once a week.
As for styling the wig.. I mostly just wear it straight. This wig is light yaki chinese hair. And for me it is very hard to curl. I have spent countless hours in front of the mirror trying to get it to curl with my FHI iron. Only to achieve a bump at the ends.. lol Then the bum falls completely by the end of the day.... :/ Oh well.
I redo my braids every other week when they feel loose or too frizzy. I remove my wig every night and put it on my wig head. I tie my hair down with a satin scarf. I shampoo my scalp while my braids are still in every week to keep it nice and clean and itch free.
I have been using my scalp cream that I made every day as my topical growth aid. It contains both sulfur powder and MegaTek, along with a few essential oils.
I am working my way back to getting everything back on track!! I have started back on my vits been consistent for about a month or so. My skin is starting to clear up!! Yess!! I have noticed that I am a bit more energetic also. Yay for me!!
I actually bought this wig about 2 years ago from a chinese vendor. I have old pics in my fotki album HERE and I recently twitpic'd it HERE and HERE
The password to the LF album is ltyaki
All the specs on this particular wig are in the info portion of that album.
I do want to get another lace wig. Next time I will try out Indian hair!! Gotta do some research on the current vendor that are out there now.
