Outre 4 Way Part Lace Wig

Outre has always release some awesome hair units , so that you can be versatile and express your creativity, through your hair. I was so excited when I got asked to review Outre’s 4 Way Part Lave wig by Sam’s Beauty. My first experience with Outre was back in early 2005 , with their Half Wigs, that could easily be converted to a ponytail.

When I received this lace front , I already knew chances were I would like it. Let’s get into this review.

The wig is 20 inches , and is synthetic. The fibers can be heated and curled up to 400 degrees. I do flat iron my unit , and make sure to use a little of heat protectant.

The unit has four combs in the index , and straps to tighten the unit in the bk. There is also a small amount of lace located on the , do that you can pull it up in a high ponytail or top knot.

Shedding is limited. I brushed , combed and styled without hair getting all over the sink and the rig. If you have a chance to check this unit out , tell me how like it.

Good night luvs,

Wow! Wow! That’s all I can say and think. After being natural for exactly 2 years and 10 months, I big chopped AGAIN! A lot of my subscribers got the first look on my Facebook page , and asked why. First, I love experimenting with my hair. Its just hair , it will grow back.

I didn’t want to mix hair journeys , and really wanted to see my progress from a new beginning. With that being said I’m super excited. I love my hair and can’t believe how well the short twist fits my face. Here’s a few pictures of my hair twisted .

Will It Ever Grow!?

image

This seems to be every natural’s question. Will my hair ever grow? I’m going to give you some advice my grandmother always told me. “A watched pot never broils” Sure doesn’t. Have you literally just watched a pot to see how long it would take? I have, and boy did it take forever. Same thing with your hair, leave it alone and it will grow.  I promise you.
  Sure co-wash and oil as usual, along with your deep conditioning treatments.  Just don’t be constantly doing hairstyles that cause breakage to your hair.
   Protective styling is also a topic that is always coming up in the natural hair community. Is it necessary? I believe that as long as your ends are well protected ( tucked i. e buns) and not rubbing against your collar or clothes, then breakage should not occur. I happen to know some naturals that do and some that don’t, both have some serious length. It all depends on your hair, what does your hair like.  You’d be surprised at what you would find out if you’d pay close attention to how it reacts to different products.

  Getting hair this long won’t be a problem for some, but might take a lot of us a while to get to this length. Don’t be frustrated with your length at all. Make it fun by trying different hairstyles throughout your journey. If you have any questions be sure to contact me.

Dying Your Lace front? Protect The Lace

Dying your lace front wig is pretty cool, especially when its human hair and one you love. A lot of naturals wear them as a protective style to get through the wintery cold months or just when deciding to protective style for a while. If you all ask , what is the lace part of my wig I will explain .The lace part of the wig is where u can part the wig any way you would like to achieve different hair styles. You are suppose to cut the lace to match your hairline. DO NOT WEAR YOUR LACEFRONT WITHOUT CUTTING OFF THE LACE THAT IS HANGING IN THE FRONT OR BACK!!!
It is extremely important that you also wear the unit a bit bk from your hairline ,leaving some of your hair out to get the more natural look. Now to dying. You want to protect the lace from any hair dye that you are using. The lace acts as a scalp, that should not be colored the dye of choice.
You can buy Morning Glory to add to the lace to make sure that the dye doesn’t stain. Morning Glory acts as a harden shield when dried. *Alternative* Elmer’s School Glue is also another way to protect the lace. Definitely cheaper , and I bet we all have some on hand in our houses. I prefer using the Elmer’s because I feel I have more control when it comes to washing the unit and removing it from the lace. Here’s a pic of my unit with the Elmer’s harden the next day.
image

If you see any parts of the lace to where it isn’t covered make sure you reapply another layer whether its with the Morning Glory or Elmer’s. Just keep on applying! I can’t stress how important it is not to stain your lace!!
You will dye your unit and condition it as you would your own hair, and blow dry and style as usual .

Here’s my 100% Human Brazilian Lacefront dyed blue/black from light brown. She is actually wavy , but I blow dried her straight for now. If you have any questions be sure to comment below!
