Alopecian Tresses & Beauty
I have been sporting lace wigs for some years now and can’t remember the last time I really wore a daily wig. Last night time as I was washing my Malaysian Gentle Yaki unit, I thought of how many common wigs I used to buy on a monthly basis.
I used to purchase a minimum of 3 to four common wigs a month, which averaged about $180 month-to-month. Some were synthetic and human. So my yearly cost on wigs Have been $2,160! Yes..you read that appropriately. My hair loss was costing me some huge cash on the time not including the therapies that I was attending to develop my natural hair again. These wigs would final me from three days to possibly every week or two. I’ve a small head so the wig caps by no means fit and had been bulky on my head. The hair shed like no one’s enterprise, frizzed up, grew to become dull after one wash, and would melt in the heat (artificial items). At the time earlier than I knew about lace wigs, I was caught with these wigs.
When I used to be introduced to lace wigs, I used to be on cloud nine and I have been glued (actually) to them ever since. The average cost of a full lace wig can vary from $300-$1000, relying on customization. For my part they’re well worth the investment as a result of it acts simply just like the hair that was or is rising in your head. I treat all my lace wigs like princesses. The picture under is my Malaysian unit, which retails for $350, and she is 10 months outdated. So with her, I saved $1,810!!!! She’s been coloured twice, minimize, trimmed, shampooed and conditioned a number of times. She is my go to unit for my most pure look and she still has that bounce, robust hair strands, tons of luster, no tangles, minimal shedding, no weave and the lace remains to be as robust because it was once i first received her.
Under is my routine hair care for this particular unit:
Wash & Condition once per week with Nunaat Silicon Moisturizing Shampoo, Hair Masque, and Depart-in Conditioner
Seal the knots earlier than & after washing hair with Pump It Up hair Spritz by Bronner Bros. and Got2B Freeze Spray
Apply a serum every different day (Moroccan Oil remedy or Organix Coconut Milk)
Wash once a month with Nunaat Silicon Fortifying Shampoo to strengthen the strands to keep them robust & healthy
At all times enable unit to air dry. Solely hair dryer to seal the knots faster.
Use heat protectant prior using flat iron or curling iron. I normally flat iron hair once a week.
Each evening I spray conditioner water flippantly on the hair and pay particular attention to the ends to no weave keep away from split ends.
If she is bonded, I wrap her up and tie on a satin scarf. If she’s on a wig stand, I cover her up within the satin scarf or bonnet.
