My reasoning for the wig : You may of noticed for the past 6 months I was bleaching my hair and lightening it quite a lot and even though my hair kept in great condition, all of sudden it caught up with me and my hair started to get weak and that was the stopping point for me - dyed my hair back dark and with the colder days approaching quickly. It's the perfect time to keep my hair wrapped up, away from heat and colouring and gives me more time to reconstruct it.
I have never had any other sort of hair besides hair supplied from a beauty supply store so this is all new to me. Deciding to make a wig instead of weaving in the hair, gives me the chance of being able to re-use this hair and reduces a lot and I mean a lot of shedding as the wefts have not been cut! This is just an initial review on the hair!
Packaging : The bundles as I said come in bundles of 4oz and come in a drawstring burgundy shaded bag. Each weft is has the Bella Dream Hair seal wrapped around it with an elastic band underneath to keep it all together.
As told for the 10th time, the hair was used to make a protection wig :
Wig Method Used : I didn't cut a single track until the end, I just flipped it over, flattened it as much as possible and then sewed it down and continued onto the next row. The left over hair, I used to make the closure.
Here's the closure :
|Late Night .... Bare Canvas - but my honey boo-boos know the line!|
Since doing this wig, I have worn it out, run the straighteners through it just to flatten it out from where it was tied up with the rubber band but of course hair lasts by how you treat it and I still used heat protection on it and combed it through before using any hot tools.
There's hardly been any shedding that's come when brushing and this is from starting to make the wig until today which is impressive as I'm use to seeing hair EVERYWHERE ( and I really mean everywhere )
I did cut the elastic band of the cap which I could of kept if I was going for a full bang. Instead I just used clips and put two at the front, two at the back and two at the temple. I cainrowed my hair and I place a wig cap on top to protect the hair from the clips.
Once this has been styled properly, used more hot tools and given it a good wear. I can give a proper review - this was just an initial review for you all!
In the meantime if your interested in Bella Dream Hair please do visit their website at www.belladreamhair.com as you guys wanted a lot more hair tutorials, I think this may be a good way of doing them for you while mine is in re-constructive rehab.
A girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do to protect that hair - I'll be balder than Britney circa '07!
