Want Long AND Short Hair? Get Luxy Extensions!

22 Mar

Short hair today, long hair tomorrow, you have got to try Luxy Hair!

These hair extensions are my new obsession and I have to say the name really does say it all. They are  positively LUXURIOUS.

They have three different sets to choose from, one for thinner hair, one for medium hair and one for thicker hair. I bought the 160 Gram medium hair set for $149 bucks.  This set comes with different 10 wefts of hair that you clip in.

They arrived quickly and I have to say I was impressed. They come straight and when you curl them, they really get super full. This is real hair, so you can basically treat them as such… curl, wash, brush, whatever you do with your mop. They felt secure when in and I didn’t get a headache from wearing them, although it feels a little weird when you first clip them in.

Hold on now sister, don’t get nervous, Luxy has some video tutorials on their site that show you how exactly how to clip them in and take care of them.

These are my first set of extensions and I couldn’t be happier, my husband calls me his “little mermaid” when I have them in!

 You never  have to worry again about chopping your hair off, cause you can just slap this bad ass weave in anytime you like. To whomever invented these, I thank you.

Most importantly, these things just make me feel pretty!

Well Water DreadLocks… Get Rid of Them!

26 Jun


We have been living in our current house for about a year now and have a well.  When we first moved in my hair started coming out in handfuls and the hair that was left starting to turn into a serious case of dreadlocks. Don’t get me wrong, dreadlocks are cool, but I don’t happen to be in the Rastafarian mood at this moment.

After many hours, days and months of internet research,  I started trying every conditioner known to man and was just shy of sleeping with a bucket of Crisco on my head.  As a last resort, we called a water filtration company who came out and gave us an estimate for $5000.00 and that “MIGHT” fix our problem.  Needless to say, we did not go that route.

The next time I went to the store, I picked up a couple of jugs of distilled water and put them in my shower. With my next shower, I washed my hair and then did a final rinse with the shockingly cold ass distilled water. I got out of the shower and OMGosh…. could this be true….brushed my wet hair! It couldn’t be this easy could it, after 6 months of conditioning experiments and woe.  Well, it turns out that it was just that simple.

I now give my hair a little rinse with the distilled water after each wash and I am happy to be dreadlock free.

Now I don’t have to go out and buy a Rasta hat to keep my locks in and now you don’t have to either!

(although you would look smashin’ in one of those mon…lol)



Two Funky Summer Hairdos: Dip Dye and Bleach Bangs!

14 Jun

 It’s Summer…. why not put some funky in your hairdo!

#1 Dip Dye 

Check out my daughters dip dye job!

 Dip dying is in and I found that most people like to use SPLAT to do it.  We used the Pink Fetish kit. It comes with a bleach and a color. We skipped right over the bleach part and just put the dye straight on since her hair is already light.

I just put some dye in my (gloved) fingers and kinda pulled down on the tips, making sure it was well saturated and even. Don’t let this stuff touch anything that you don’t won’t permanently pink.  I left it on for about 20 minutes. Rinsed, shampooed…. instant cool!

The color turned out pretty and almost had a sparkly appearance.

(Warning: when you wash your hair use ole towels and be sure to dry the colored part before sittin’ on a couch or going to bed. The color rubs off a little when wet)

#2 Bleach Beach Bangs

I put a little beach in my bangs for the Summer!

My hair coloring journey started years back when a beauty salon chick (you know who you are) ruined my hair. I decided then and there if my hair is gettin’ ruined, I’m gonna be in control of it,  darn’it!

Now home bleaching can seem a little complicated and scary at first and requires a little research, some professional products and some trial and error.  YouTube chicks can serve as a great resource and somewhat of a guide for what you should and shouldn’t do.

Unfortunately, Bleach does do a little damage to your locks…the price you pay for beauty:)
