How To Revive Your Hair Extensions

Thursday, December 4, 2014

I know one of the biggest questions people have when they are considering purchasing any time of hair extension is will their purchase last a long time. If your are like me I wear my wigs and extensions daily and I am always putting heat and products in them. That kind of wear and tear dries the hair out and can lead to your extensions not lasting as long as they should. It is extremely important that you wash and condition your extensions with care and give them attention so that they remain moisturized and full of life. So anywhere from once a week to ever other week I like to wash and deep condition whatever type of hair extensions I'm wearing at the time whether it is a wig or clip ins. My routine is pretty simple and bring life instantly back to dry unmanageable extensions. 

What you need:

Mild Shampoo
Your favorite oil or hair serum
Wide tooth comb
Plastic grocery bag 

1 - Gently wash hair in warm water and rinse thoroughly 

2 -  Saturate hair in conditioner. Be sure all the hair is generously coated in condition


3 - Place extensions in a plastic grocery bag. Tie off and make sure there is no air in the bag

4 - Place the plastic bag in the microwave for 1 minute

5 - In a bowl add a little water, and 5-6 drops of your favorite hair oil or serum. Stir until well mixed

6 - Take the extensions out of the plastic bag and place them in the bowl. Be careful they will be hot. Leave for 5 minutes 

7 - Rince out hair with cold water. Squeeze out excess water with a towel, brush through extensions with a wide tooth comb and leave them out to air dry 

My Favorite Foundations

Monday, December 1, 2014

Hello Dolls!
I typically stick to the same foundations and just keep them in rotation depending on what look I'm trying to go for. Makeup Forever HD Invisible Foundation and MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation are  my go to foundations. I apply them both with a beauty blender for easy and seamless application. I have oily skin that tends to breakout easily and these foundations both look beautiful on my skin. 


I like to use this foundation when I won't be outside or wearing makeup for more than a few hours. The foundation doesn't really do well to wear for long periods of time. I would say if your skin has blemishes or dark spot use a concealer along with the foundation to cover those areas. For more dry and normal skin types this foundation is perfect and sits well on the skin. However using this foundation with oily skin can cause a problem with looking shiny after a few hours. So without a powder you will be oily shortly after applying 

Pros - 
Natural Matte Finish
Photographs beautiful
Light weight
Blends well

Cons - 
Can be hard to find a good color match
Doesn't work well with oily skin

I love a full coverage and flawless finish to daily makeup and tend to reach for MAC's Fix Fluid foundation the most. You really only have to use a little to take care of your whole face and if you choose there really isn't a need to use a setting powder. Ive heard from people that the formula has an odd smell but to me I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary. When you first apply the foundation it does have a heavy feeling but it won't last just wait a few minutes for it to dry and set. 

Pros - 
Flawless finish full coverage
A little goes a long way
Blends well
Works good with Oily skin

Cons - 
Can be cakey/ heavy
No pump included
can be messy

Eva Wigs Review

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Hey Dolls!
Wigs, wigs, wigs! I am an avid wig wearer and lover. The wonderful people over at Eva Wigs gave me a great opportunity to try out one of their custom wigs. Here are some of the particulars. 
Wig Specs:
Style - CEW112
Color - #2
Hair type - 100% Human Indian Remy
Length - 24inches
Density - 100% Medium
Construction - glueless
Baby hair - Around the perimeter
I love the length of the wig because it gives you a lot of options to work with when styling. I'm not a big fan of Indian remy hair because it tends to "swell" in humid weather, but this grade is probably the best I've worn. I haven't had much problems with the wig tangling although if you do not take care of the unit properly you will see matting and tangling. 

Curls and Straitening
On a scale of 1 to 10 I would say the hair takes and keeps curls at a 5. The curls come out beautifully and will hold for about 4 hours but they do tend to frizz up a little as the day goes on. As for keeping the hair straight, the wig does extremely well and has a lot of life when its straight.

I've washed this wig twice since I've received it and each time it bounces back to the gorgeous original wave pattern. Sometimes when you wash wigs it does dry them out considerably but I haven't had any problems with loosing shine and moisture in the hair. 

The wig is glueless and has lace all over the entire unit. I do wish the knots were bleached but the parting is great when you just add a little concealer. Of course wearing a nude wig cap underneath the wig absolutely helps.  

If you are new to wigs I think this unit is a good place to start. The maintenance is low and the hair can take a lot of wear and tear. You can throw it on and go daily and it looks extremely natural without having to be a wig guru to make the wig look beautiful.

DIY Shopping Bag Wall Art

Monday, August 18, 2014

In a little less than a week I will be moving into my first apartment by myself. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money buying decor and wall are so I went to Pinterest to find a fun inexpensive way to decorate. I saw a lot of people putting their shopping bags from different stores in framed and hanging them and I thought that was a super chic and cute way to jazz up a wall. 
What you need:
1. Shopping Bag
2. Shadow Box
3. Scissors
4. Tape
5. Cardboard inset that comes with the shadow box
*You can get shadow boxes at Hobby Lobby and Michael's for $7-9 each. 
Cut along the front fold of the bag. Make sure to carefully and straight.
After you cut out one side of the bag, flip it over and cut off the knots that keep the handles on the bag. 
Tape down the handles so that they won't slip through the holes. Add tape all along the end of the bag.
Lay the bag carefully on the cardboard cut out and arrange the bag the way you would like. 
Then add tap to the back of the handle to and arrange it so that it fits flat in the box.
Add on piece of tap to the top inside edge so that the cardboard does not fall out of the shadow box.
