The weather is finally starting to get cooler, and this is the time where my scalp starts to get itchy. I am so glad Canviiy showed up in my inbox with a free sample. Thank you Canviiy for the free sample. Y’all this product is so good. Canviiy is a combination of different oils and ingredients that, when used on the scalp with the easy to use applicator, stops the itch. It truly works. I tried the samples they gave me, and I was so amazed by it. I usually use tea tree oil to stop the itch, but Canviiy swears by their product and claim that it gives you a long-lasting scalp soothing sensation.
It is that time of the year again where I start to look for some wigs to use as protective styles for my natural hair. Half wigs are great because they are easy, usually cheap, low maintenance styles that can protect my natural hair from the cold, dry air. I always start the wig search process by going on YouTube and checking out the latest tutorials and wig hauls. I’ve seen quite a few wig hauls on these new Outre half wigs, and I think these might be the best half wigs for natural hair.
Vivica Fox Cornrow Caps might just be a dream come true. I’ve never seen anything like this before, and it’s really exciting. A part of me is like wow this is really really really freaking weird, but then a whole nother part of me is like this is kind of convenient, and I might need to go out and procure me one of these contraptions.
This week I am going to be featuring a series of YouTube videos that helped my transition to natural hair. My natural hair journey wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and I really think that was because of the many YouTube videos that I watched every night. I have been natural for two years now, and I finally big chopped about one year and change into my journey. I know for some that may seem like an eternity when you are used to having relaxed hair. I hope this video series helps on your own natural hair journey.
Remember when I wrote about the Beshe Drew wig in my All Natural Style Secrets post Well I bought another one. This time I bought the wig from Elevate Styles in the color 4. For the non-wiggies out there, wig colors are categorized by numbers, and a 4 is basic brown wig. I am really loving the lighter color. I said that I wanted to experiment with color, and I am finally doing it. The Beshe Drew wig looks so good on me. It took a little bit of an adjustment, but I think I am going to be buying more wigs in that color.
I bought both versions of this wig from Elevate Style because they have the most colors, and the best price. Youtuber ColouredBeautiful has a video where she tries all the colors on. If you are not a fan of curls or full wigs…don’t buy this one. It is pretty big when you first put it on and gets bigger the longer you wear it. It is easy to cute so you can shape it to your face, and the 2 inches of parting space looks realistic. The hair texture is really natural looking for a synthetic wig. The Beshe Drew wig is like a fine wine. As cliche as that sounds, I am telling the truth. The older and frizzier the wig gets, the better it looks. I get so many compliments on it. This wig is on sale at Elevate Styles for $29.88! Get it and you won’t regret it!
This is a review of the Freetress Equal Lace Front Deep Invisible Part Nelly Wig in an OP99J. The wig is really beautiful, and actually looks better than I thought on. I wanted to try a new color without dying my hair, and I think the purple-deep burgundy color looks great on me. I am going to have to put concealer in the lace part to make it look like my scalp color, but even the white color on the scalp lace looks realistic on my head. The only problem is that the wig cap is too small. It doesn’t even feel like a medium. I am really going to have to stretch it out. It has two combs in the front and one in the back, as well as little straps in the back to loosen or tighten it up. I got this wig from Amazon. It was $31.41 after shipping and handling. If you want a good price on the wig, do a Google search. Even Amazon had the same wig for different prices for each different color. SMH!
As y’all know, I am going natural. I’m trying to learn how to do different types of twist outs on my hair for a protective style that will give my hair a break. I found this video from Shameless Maya which shows you how to do two twerked out twist outs! The song and dancing are cute, but the tutorial is also very informational. In the video she shows you how to do the two strand twist out and the flat twist. Check it out and see if you can master these twisting techniques. Bonus: You can do these twist outs on relaxed hair as well.
