Re-Weave Relief: I’m Sew In!

After my previous post, “Post Extension Blues,” I heeded my colorist’s warning not to install extensions or weave my hair for at least THREE WEEKS! I turned to wide brim hats, fedoras, and caps after experiencing hair-loss from wearing other people’s hair and processing my own from darkest brown to platinum blonde repeatedly…both DIY and…

Post-Extensions Blues

You’ve definitely heard someone speak of being shocked, sad or depressed after removing their extensions, but have you ever experienced the post-extensions blues?

Federic Fekkai 

Frederic Fekkai  Glossing Cream is  greasy & nasty (it has olive oil in it);  I had to reshower & shampoo 4 times! Not fun, not cool, not good.  It feels dry, not moisturizing.  I had to dowse my head with Pantene, then shampoo with L’Oreal just to get it out. Let’s just say I’m not…
