New Hair and Some Randomness…

A few things:

1. Go see Takers. Now.

2. My face looks crazy when I shake my head and I was totally holding the camera. Don’t judge.

3. If any of you ladies wear lace fronts, please let me know how you keep the comb from putting tension on your edges! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh also…here’s an up close pic of Tiff on my head…see how it looks funny because I have to cover up my widow’s peak? Hrrmmm…

Moisturizing Izzy While Protective Styling

So, if you saw my previous post, you’ll see that I twisted Izzy up, and rather than take the twists down today, I decided to leave them in as a protective style and rock some wigs. However, the important thing about wearing wigs is ensuring you real hair stays moisturized underneath. This has always been my concern with weaves – while they look nice (sometimes) and are more secure, I feel funny about not being able to let my scalp breathe every night and looking at my hair to make sure it’s okay.

Personally, I prefer to use spray moisturizers while my hair is in twists, because I don’t want to have to rub the product in, which may mess up the twist so I can’t do a twist out later. So, here are the products I am using on Izzy this week:

– HerbnLife Head Sprung: A great moisturizing spray that I can get on the ground most of the time (they are always selling out!). From their website – Headsprung base is made from Organic Aloe Vera and an Infusion of Flax Seeds. Both ingredients cleanse, protect and provide a perfect balance for scalp and hair. Combined with Olive Oils, Hemp oil, Shea Butter and Avocado oil this formula moisturizes hair with no oily build-up leaving hair smooth and full of body. Oh, and it smells ah-mazing!

– And now we have a newcomer to the game, Gueye Antiseptic Braid Spray. Now get this, the back of the bottle says, “Use the entire Gueyes’s Hair Growth System and grow your hair 1 inch in 2-4 weeks.” Chile, please. First…how would I use the whole line (I think it’s like a shampoo, condish, leave-in, gel, and the spray) when my hair is in twists? NEXT. But, I bought it anyway despite that crazy claim because the ingredients look good. ย Here they are: Deionized water, Vegetable glycerin, Extracts of: Matricaria, Sage, Nettle, Rosemary, Aloe, Thyme, Lemongrass, Comfrey, Yarrow, Horsetail, Kelp, Fennel and Parsley, Peppermint oil, Quaternium-15, Capsicum, Tea Tree oil, Avocado oil, Olive oil, Castor oil, Wheat Germ oil, Jojoba oil, Lavender oil, Vitamin E, Safflower oil, Vitamin A, Polyquaternium 10, Alfalfa extract, Panthenol, Biotin, Apple Cider. Whew! Now, this one smells a little funkier, but it’s okay because I’m using it under my wig anyway. If you have tried this stuff, please let me know what you thought of it!

That’s all for now…xoxo!

Update: So after I took my twists down and HATED them (that’s another post), I researched a bit more and found out that sprays can moisten your twists to the point where they shrink up! Ohhh….why didn’t anyone tell me, lol! Then I super hope the moisture from my Holding Butter lasts!! ๐Ÿ™‚
