Wig Review: Freetress Bebe

By 3 min read 377 views

After purchasing the Freetress Nia Girl half wig, I decided to give a full wig a try.  I wanted to get a wig that was similar in style to the crochet style I mostly wear, so I purchased the Freetress Equal Synthetic Lace Front Bebe wig from blackhairspray.com (which, fyi, is having a Fourth of July sale right now). DISCLAIMER: I purchased this wig myself.  Neither Freetress nor blackhairspray.com furnished this wig to me nor are they paying me for my opinion on this blog. The wig was decently priced (approx. $28), but I must say that my first impression…

The Hair Benefits of the Lemon

By 3 min read 589 views

It seems the lemon is the red-headed step child of the natural hair community.  We discuss the benefits of many natural oils, nuts, and fruits, but not much seems to be said about the lemon other than it can naturally lighten your hair. The lemon was actually known, before modern times, as an essential ingredient for maintaining hair.  There are several ways you can incorporate the benefits of the lemon into your hair care regimen. You can eat (or drink) it Lemons have the ability to eliminate toxins from the body–and also from the hair.  Hair can hold toxins from the environment that…

Wig Review: Freetress Nia Girl

By 5 min read 234 views

A while back, I needed a protective style for the work week, but I was running short on time and my hair wasn’t working with me.  For the first time in my life, I decided to purchase a wig.  I’ve never been a wig girl by any means–sure, here and there you might find me donning a blood red or platinum blonde wig for Halloween, but it certainly wasn’t a style I turned to for daily wear. Well, after purchasing the Freetress Synthethic Fullcap Drawstring Nia Girl wig, I may just hop aboard the wig train. DISCLAIMER: I purchased this…

Protective Style: Sensationnel Ponytail & Creme of Nature Perfect Edges Review

By 3 min read 178 views

One of the main problems l face as a transitioner, is adequately blending textures.  Sometimes even wearing your hair in a simple ponytail can highlight just how different both textures are.  My husband thinks that I’m wearing a hair piece when I put my hair in a ponytail or bun because it literally looks like different hair (how embarrassing!) That’s when I decided that actually wearing a hair piece would look more natural.  Wearing a curly-textured ponytail can provide the adequate blending needed, while simultaneously providing protection for your ends (and it’s perfect for the everyday professional). I purchased this ponytail…

To Big Chop or Not to Big Chop?–That is the Question!

By 2 min read 179 views

I realize that not too long ago, I said that I was not ready to big chop (BC).  However, my transitioning hair has been irritating me to no end! That darn line of demarcation is such a hassle, I’m just about done with it. And yet,  I keep oscillating back and forth on the issue.  I think part of it has to do with the fact that I haven’t had really short hair since the last time I BCed at 10 years old lol. I remember not liking it then–psychological scarring, maybe? I’ve actually just blatantly proclaimed to half my…
