Wash and Go!!!

This is basically when you wash your hair and go! This is done by a lot of ladies. I always wanted to try this but I have very thick, coarse 4a/4b hair, and my hair will look a hot mess if it air dried without proper supervision. LOL!

***A Few Questions***

* What do yall ladies do that have thick, coarse, kinky hair to get a great wash n’ go?
* What Products do yall use?
* How do you wear your hair?
* What is the outcome at the end of the day?

Thanks for participating!!!

Wigs and the Summer!!!

I must say that wigs are not that comfortable to wear in the warmer months. You will most likely sweat more and your wig will look tacky. But I must say I love my wigs! They are the only protective style I could wear without my hair looking boring. I wore my wig this weekend for my sons B-Day and Memorial Day and It was OK, since it was not all that hot. I still have my box braids in my hair and I just braided them back, and threw my wig on along with my eye and face makeup and was out the door. I guess half wigs would be a better route but since I'm about 8 months post relaxer and if I sweat just a little my new growth will look like a jungle. I guess I'm going to stick to these box braids for the rest of this stretch.

***For the ladies that are wearing the wigs this summer***

* Are you wearing full or half wigs?
* How many weeks post relaxer are you?
* How are you managing your new growth, the heat and wigs from day to day?

Sally's Sale!!!

Don't we love Sally's sales! Well I just found this out and wanted to pass it along. (Thanks KISS) Anyway all month long Sally is having a sale on the GVP-Generic Value Products(2 for $10), Mane and Tail(BOGO), and Aphogee(2 for $15)

Im more interested in the GVP cause I would like to try the GVP Silk Remedy, which is suppose to be the generic brand to Chi Silk Infusion. The Chi Silk Infusion is very pricy for such a little bit of the product. I heard so many good reviews about the GVP Silk Remedy that I want to try it. Spending $8.50 for 6oz instead of $15 for 2oz is well worth the try!

When I try it I will post a review on it. So look out for it!

Eyebrow Threading

I have always wanted to try this technique. It is considered the best method according to love to know website. Here is what they have to say about it.

Eyebrow threading utilizes thread that is twisted around the hairs on the eyebrows. Then, the thread is pulled sharply, and every eyebrow hair attached to it is removed. The result is a very straight eyebrow line. The hairs that are removed are done so by the follicle, so the clean-looking results can last up to a few weeks.

Most beauticians will agree that eyebrow threading is better for a person’s skin that using hot wax to remove unwanted facial hair. The skin near the eyebrow region can be very sensitive, and using wax on it can lead to break-outs, skin irritation, or even burned skin. Also, hot wax can cause the skin to peel or become wrinkled. This is why using a method of removing unwanted eyebrow hair that does not involve the application of any sort of heated substance or chemical is seen as beneficial.

Using tweezers on eyebrow hair is basically the same as threading the hair, but a pair of tweezers is only able to capture one or two hairs at a time. Also, when using a tweezers, there is no guarantee that the hair will be pulled out by its follicle. Tweezing eyebrow hair can be a time-consuming process, and cannot produce an even eyebrow line the way threading can.

Using a razor to remove unwanted eyebrow hair is not recommended. Razors do not remove hairs from their follicles, and they are often difficult to control. An eyebrow shaped with a razor will most likely look strange and full of stubble.

It seems painful but so is waxing. If the results last weeks at a time I need to find a place near me that does them. Do any of you get this technique done? How is your experience?
