Shall I hide, again?


I’d guess you all know me by now. I am big fan of wigs. What better way is there to protect your hair and change your look instantly??? Date night, Church, a family affair, they are perfect for anytime!! The hard part, however, is making your wig look believable. This was why I was very excited about Essence’ article on wigs!!

The wig to the right looks amazing. The text on the site says that this is a half wig that has been cut and styled. Being a natural, however, makes it a bit harder to match the wig texture. So, I opt for whole wigs. In January or February, I am going to get a wig sewn-in, just like a weave. It’s so convenient! Make sure to check out the article, it was VERY informative!!!

Also, check out my throwback June 2007 post on wigs that I love!!

Dry!

Is Winter weather drying your hair out? I know my hair feels brittle…like a damn Brillo pad!!! I was literally turning in my sleep, when I rubbed up against my hair. I jumped up and had to moisturize it. I could hear my hair crunch out of dryness. Ick.

Here are some products that I know will get me through this harsh weather!! These products are recommended for relaxed, texturized or natural hair.

Curls Whipped Cream is a super thick, super lush moisturizer. I use this once a day or so, and it instantly hydrates my hair. After I wash my hair, while it is still damp, I apply this and let my hair drink it up. Then, I add some oil on top to seal it in, then I am on my way!!!


When I want something a bit thinner, but moisturizing, I opt for Miss Jessie’s Baby Buttercream. After I tried it the first time around, I became hooked!!! Sure, this bad boy costs an arm and a leg, but the hydrations last for hours to come. It smells like sweet cream, and a little bit goes a long way. PLUS, during the famous holiday sale, you can Buy one, get one free on any of those Miss Jessies products that you wanted to try!!! I’ll be purchasing two Baby Buttercreams, just to stock up!!

Unforgivable Woman by Sean Combs

I can’t get enough of this sexy scent. It’s super sensual, and I love the way it puts intrigues in a man’s eye. I wore it out to a lounge the other night, and as I walked by, I could feel the boys noses pucker! Diddy has done it again, and has decided to make you smell as sexy as he thinks he is. I’m not knocking Diddy, I’m just more into the Jay-Z swag.

Anywho, the scent is absolutely scrumptious. I wear it faithfully every week. It includes notes of Orange Flower and Grapefruit, and it last throughout the night. This is a definite must have for an enchnting evening out, or to keep the fellas guessing!
