What do you mean by "Medical Grade"?

August 12, 2020

Medical wigs are made to be used as prosthetics (hair replacements) as opposed to fashion or cosplay wigs, which are worn to look cute but are not meant to be worn by folks with medical hair loss. Medical wigs tend to have comfort features and high end finishes. These include felt, silicone, or polyurethane in the caps to aid with grip and comfort when worn against a bare scalp. If they have lace, the lace is precut. (This is not the case in fashion and cosplay wigs, where they emphasize customization of the hair line over ease of wear.) That's the general rule of thumb, at least. Some brands blur those lines, like Rene of Paris, Ellen Wille's Changes and Perucci lines, and the newer crop of Estetica wigs. These all tend to skimp on higher end cap features in favor of fast production and trendier styles, similar to fashion brands.

Things You Can and Cannot Do To Synthetic Wigs.

Things You Can and Cannot Do To Synthetic Wigs.

August 04, 2020

There seems to be three main types of synthetic wig owners.

The first group is made up of those who are almost scared to touch their wigs because they think that the slightest modification will ruin their wigs. The second group is made up of those who think they can do anything they want to their synthetic wigs and the wigs will be just fine. And the third group understands that there are dos and don’ts when it comes to handling a synthetic wig. These wig wearers know that when you show your wigs love and treat them right, that care and pride will shine right through.

PCOS is the worst.

PCOS is the worst.

July 29, 2020

You know there’s something wrong. You know it's diet related. The frustrating thing is the lack of cause. Did the chicken come before the egg or vice versa? In other words, does your innate desire to accumulate sexy, socially-desirable body fat  </sarcasm font>  magically give you PCOS or does the PCOS incorporate metabolic agents that make you gain the fat to begin with, like a Crisco-laden canary in the coal mine? The difference between the two paradigms is vast, as one implies that it’s YOUR FAULT you’re sick and the other makes it seem like nature is playing some sort of demented trick on you.

Lori's Review: Stop Traffic by Raquel Welch, Color: Shaded Toast

Lori's Review: Stop Traffic by Raquel Welch, Color: Shaded Toast

July 22, 2020

This is not a lace front,  but it has a nice light bang.  It does have a larger than normal size mono crown as you can see in my pictures. It also has Permatease, but it's not a crazy amount. I'm not a huge fan of Permatease, but it's placed really well on this one.
Let's talk about this color. I'm always wearing some type of brunette. I've never stepped out of my comfort zone into blondes. I am so glad I did. This color and rooting are beautiful.  Sometimes rooting on blondes can be dark. This one isn't. It was a tiny bit shiny,  but not enough I felt like I had to use any dry shampoo on it I've washed this one, and it bounced right back to the soft waves.

SELF-CARE – WHY WE SHOULD CONSIDER TAKING TIME OUT FOR OURSELVES

July 14, 2020

No, it doesn’t make you weak. It only means you’re human just like everyone else. In a society that tells us to hide our vulnerability, some of us try to put on a brave face even when we’re desperately in need of a break. Life is hard enough as it is. There’s no need to wreck our health in the process. That’s why self-care isn’t just important--it’s essential. And making self-care a priority is not a sin. It’s very necessary.
