Did you see my previous post where I tried out my first wig? I got on so well with it that I decided to get another one and go for a different style/colour. My new one is the Echo wig from www.hothair.co.uk and is in the shade creamy glow.
I wanted to go for a slightly longer and blonder wig as I would love to go blonde naturally but my hair cannot handle the bleach!
I braided my hair to get it out of the way and keep it as flat to my head as I could.
I love how natural this one looks and you can change where the parting is and if you want a side or middle fringe etc.
I found this wig so comfortable to wear and I think it looks such great quality and looks so realistic.
It takes a bit of practice to get used to wearing a wig and takes a bit of adjustment to get them to sit perfect on your head but they are so comfy to wear throughout the day.
Would you try a wig? I think I would like black one next as I have always wanted black hair but the darkest I have gone is dark brown.
I am back sharing with you what hair care I am using at the moment. When ever I run out of shampoo and conditioner I love to take the opportunity to try something new. I have been using the Maui moisture revive and hydrate range for the last few weeks and I am really impressed.
This range is specifically designed for people with dry and damaged hair but they also have other ranges available in boots and superdrug depending on your hair concern: dry hair, chemically damaged hair, thick curly hair, weak or brittle hair.
This range is vegan and they do not contain any sulfates, they just have good ingredients like aloe juice and coconut water.
I found they products very hydrating, which is what you need if your hair is dry and damaged. They products left my hair feeling really soft and revived as well as leaving it a lot more manageable and it looked in a lot better condition after it dried. I didn’t need to put so much oil on the ends like i usually do.
D you always stick to the same hair products or do you like to try new things when your current products run out?
You all know how much I obsess about my hair. I am constantly changing the colour of it but when I am in between changes it can often look quite bad. I wanted to get myself a wig so that for those few days of the month when my roots are bleached and yellow and I am fading out the ends I can simply out a wig on and not have to worry about being judged for my bad hair.
There are also times when I really don’t want bright hair, when I wish my hair was a bit more “normal” looking. I got myself this Beatrix wig from Annabelles wigs who is a company that one of my friends recommended.
I decided to go with one that was closest to my natural colour (well, from what I can remember!). I think this wig is also a great length as it is similar to my current hair length and for the price of £27.99 I couldn’t really go wrong. The plan was, if I get along with this one I can then buy a few more in different styles and colours depending on my mood.
The wig arrived really quickly and I was impressed with the quality. As I have never worn one before I thought it may be uncomfortable and first but once I got the hang of how to tie/clip my natural hair up so it sat flat under the wig it was really quite easy to put on and quite comfortable.
I think this one looks quite natural with the slight ombre effect and the flick style. It is hard me to personally say as I know it is not my hair.
Have you ever worn a wig? Do you find them easy?
As you all know, my hair is pretty important to me. I am really trying to gown it and not dye it/bleach it so much so it has a chance to be healthy and grow. It is important for me to us haircare specific to repair my hair and prevent damage.
I have been loving the 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydrations Shampoo & Conditioner from Shea Moisture, they are “formulated with organic raw shea butter, coconut oil and coconut milk blend as well as acacia senegal to bring lacklustre hair back to life.”
Key Benefits of the range include:
- Provides Shine
- Helps make hair manageable
- Cruelty free
- Contains organic ingredients and fair trade ingredients
- No sulphates, no parabens, no phthalates, no paraffin, no mineral oil, no synthetic colour and no petrolatum
This range is suitable for all hair types but is perfect for those suffering with dry and damaged hair.
I have been using both the shampoo and conditioner together for the last couple of weeks and I have really noticed that my hair is a lot more manageable when I towel dry it. It isn’t nearly as knotty as it used to be and my hair feels a lot more hydrated whereas before my ends were so dry I used to have to put so much oil on them!
I have always been a big fan of anything with coconut oil in anyway and quite often put raw coconut oil on my hair when it’s damp. I am really impressed with this range. it is also safe to use on colour treated hair as it does not contain sulphates.
Do you have any hair products to recommend for damaged hair?
My hair has been through some terrible times recently. I am forever changing it and trying to bleach it or fade it out ready for the next colour change, meaning my hair gets in an awful condition. I am always trying to grow my hair and hate cutting it, I am pretty sure it just breaks of by itself half the time.
I use so many products to try and improve the condition but often they can be too harsh for my hair. The last few weeks I have been using some more natural products as I am taking a break from bleaching/dying so I can concentrate on having healthier hair and trying to grow it.
The two products I am using at the moment are from Pure Potions and are great for anyone with a sensitive scalp or anyone wanting to use more natural products and not harsh chemicals on their head/hair. They literally don;t contain any parabens or perfume or anything that can be bad!
After using them my hair feels clean and soft, it doesn’t feel weighed down like it can with some conditioners. I wouldn’t say it has made my hair fade from blue particularly and I am used to it fading slightly with every wash anyway even if I use colour protecting products. I am pretty impressed with both products and you only need a small amount too which helps make the tubes last longer.
Pure potions also do a great range of skincare so if you suffer from eczema or psoriasis they may be worth checking out!
