Wigs have become all the rave these days! Women are as excited as ever to have this style tool as an option. I mean, how can life get any easier than just grabbing your “hair”, placing it on your head and starting your day! It’s really that simple and wigs offer so many advantages. If your daily routine is hectic and leaves you little time for grooming, a wig may be the solution that you need.

Search no more for the answer to your protective styling woes! Wigs are a viable option for women who need an alternative to constant hair styling techniques and methods such as braiding, weaving and tension related styles. Wigs offer convenience, saves time and money, allows your natural hair to breathe and rest compared to wearing a sew in or braid styles. Wigs are a great way to avoid damage to your natural hair and gives hair the opportunity to grow and become more healthy. Have you been considering changing your hair color or the length of your hair? Well, a wig would allow you the opportunity to try it out before your commit and prevent damage to your natural hair from coloring.

If you’ve never worn a wig before here are a few tips you need to know prior to your purchase.

1) You should have an idea of the style you want before setting out to purchase. There are so many selections to choose from, you could get easily overwhelmed. If you have an idea of what you’re looking before you begin shopping it may save you lots of time and the hassle of wasted money.

2) You should have a set price limit in mind. There are so many different types of wigs and the prices will vary depending on several different factors such as hair texture, length and its ability to stand heat. The price of a wig can range from $20 to hundreds of dollars, so you have to be clear about what you want and what you expect from your wig unit.

3) Try before you buy! Be sure to try on your new style before you purchase to ensure the style looks the way you want it to. Most stores will not let you return wigs for exchange or refunds once you purchase. Most beauty stores will allow you to try on the wig before you purchase it but once you leave the store, it’s yours!

At the end of the day, wigs are a great alternative for ladies no matter what the reason. When you feel good about your appearance, your confidence level will reflect that.

Winter is here and ladies we have to prepare and protect the delicate hair, skin and lips from the elements! Lip protection is a must, we speak with them, they’re the first thing people see when they look at that beautiful face and who wants to see crusty, dry lips??? Since the weather is cold, use Lanolin as a natural lip moisturizer. It softens and reduces evaporation which will keep the lips hydrated and for serious dryness, honey will do the trick. You can also use Vaseline by adding to the lips for 10 to 15 minutes and then removing it with a q-tip or cotton swab dipped in hot water.

Now for the face….why is that the most sensitive skin is always the skin exposed? It is very important during winter months to exfoliate the skin on your face and avoid using products with alcohol and opt for a thicker facial moisturizer. For dry skin all over, mix a few drops of olive or grape seed oil in with your bathwater and soak as a moisturizing treatment. One added tip….do not use the same body creams and lotions in the winter months that you use in summer. Summer moisturizers are normally lighter and cannot provide the protection required. Go for the thicker, richer moisturizing formulas.

Well girls…now for our hair! Hair needs extra tender-loving care during the winter, we have cold air, rain, dirt and all sorts of things blowing in the wind so we must be careful. Try not to over do it with shampooing since it strips away all natural oils in the hair. If you have scalp problems or a dry scalp  you can use natural ingredients such as aloe vera plant gel (directly from the plant). It has enzymes that help unclog dead skin cells that plug up the follicles and stop penetrating nutrients. Shea butter is good for soothing the dry scalp without clogging up your pores, it’s rather thick but if mixed with other essential oils it serves as a great moisturizer for the hair and scalp.

I’d like to mention lastly that a healthy diet and exercise is key to achieving great bodily results; this would encourage a more holistic approach to health and beauty.

Take care of those essential parts during the winter months ladies 🙂
