How I apply my lace wig (Glueless)

Right now, lace wigs are my favorite protective styles. I mean I like weaves too, but I find lace wigs to be much easier to apply.I don't need to cornrow and sew, I just put the wig on and go. I don't use glue or any other adhesive. Another thing with wigs is that your whole hair is protected unlike with weaves where you
have to leave out some of your hair to cover the tracks. But don't get me wrong, weaves are definitely a good protective style option. Just be sure to give the exposed hair required tlc. When trying to blend your hair to the weave, avoid any damage by rollers setting or twisting and airdrying. For those who may be considering lace wigs as a protective style option, here is how I apply my lace wig without using any glue or adhesive.

May hair update

I will be putting up monthly hair updates. If you are trying to grow your hair out, you should have period updates, this will help you identify a problem quickly and enable you make the necessary changes to your hair regimen. It is also great motivation to look back at old progress pics or videos and observe have far you have come. Here is my update for May.

Heat free styling - my first 'twist out'

So I'm on a quest to discover healthy new styles. Right now, I am staying clear of heat. No flat irons, no curling irons, no crimping heat! I figure if I want to wear my hair out any time soon, I'm going to have to come up with some heat free styles. And today, while watching the show 'Girlfriends' I am totally inspired by Tracee ellis ross' gorrrgeous curls. I imagine that one way to copy that look is with a twistout. I've never done it before but I am willing to try. I decide to try my hands at twist out... and here is the result.

Its not exactly like Tracee Ross' but I love it!

Here's the video on how I achieved this look.

I don't consider this a protective style because I am wearing my hair out and it is swinging and rubbing against my shoulder (friction and air can cause some dryness) but that's ok. I'm not that ocd! Wearing my hair
down once in a while wouldn't hurt. At least I didn't use heat. :-)
