Wigging It Up!: Weeks 1 and 2

Happy Saturday lovelies!

I hope you guys are having an awesome weekend! My weekend has been so hectic! So much to do, so little time!

Anyway, I just wanted to drop by and update you on how this wig thing is going with me. As you guys know, I have been wigging it up for the past 2 weeks. I essentially wash/DC my hair, put it into plaits, and wig it up (hmm...I may have to post what my wig regimen is for each wig...complete with photos). So far things have been going well. Well, except for that one thing....

I pretty much found out that I'm absolutely, positively going to have to wash my hair 1 time a week, at LEAST!!! See, I tried to be slick and stretch my washing time to once every 2 weeks (even then, I didn't make it. I wound up washing my hair just 3 days after I was supposed to). However, when I finally washed my hair, I had so much shed hair. OMG. I don't know if you guys have ever had long strands of hair on your body ( I wash my hair in the shower) but that is the CREEPIEST feeling ever! Lawdhammercy. It was just hair, hair, hair, hair, HAIR all over the place. At that point I vowed to stick to my once weekly wash/DC routine. Thick, long hair sheds a lot. Got it.

Other than that, I will be rocking my Tammy wig until the end of the month (Yeah, I'm faking like that hair is mine and I don't want to switch up wigs too frequently). In October, I will be wearing a new wig so stay tuned to see what it is!

Also,I'm also still taking my B-Vitamin complex. I've been taking it for a month and I've noticed that my nails are growing in stronger and my skin is clearer. I can't make any assessments about my hair growth....yet. I'm trying to wait until I finish the bottle that I am using before I make any judgments about that. At any rate, so far so good!

That's it for now really. Just wanted to give you an update on this wig wearing thing. I'm not bored yet and trust me when I say that it is so easy to just slap on a wig and head out the door in the morning. I'm really anxious to see what kind of retention I get from this!


Shoutout to the reader who ran into me at my local BSS today (looking at wigs no less!). Definitely made my day and thanks for reading! :)


  1. girl I just love your blog! It has truly been an inspiration for me to grow my hair out. I have always kept my hair short because when it grows out it looks to thin to me. When I look at your pictures and see how far you have come it makes me think, maybe I can grow my hair out. Thanks Sharday!

  2. ^^hey!! :)

    I am so glad that I can be an inspiration to you! Trust me when I say, I used to think that I could never grow my hair out. I have come a long way!

    Anyway...thanks for reading my blog and I hope it helps you as you go through your healthy hair journey!
