Hey friends!

Whether it’s love, money, friends or peace, we have the ability to attract what we want. The first and most important thing for us to realize is that we do, in fact, attract our current circumstances, the good the bad and the ugly! Energy is transferable so therefore we must pay close attention to our thoughts, feelings, and actions since actions are a result of the energy we project. Do you have supportive friends in your life? Are you working your dream job or running the ideal business? Does your bank account reflect a balance equal to your efforts? If you answered no, you must begin to attract the outcomes that you desire by changing your thoughts, feelings, and actions. I put together some action steps that will help you begin to attract your heart’s desires.

  1. Visualize

Visualizing or daydreaming, allows you to form a mental picture of the things you desire. When you think about your next car, relationship or even your ideal career, you’ve probably seen a commercial of someone else with it. Visualizing allows you to see what you want before you actually possess it. This not only applies to physical objects, but you can also visualize how you will look and feel when you have supportive friends. Visualize the freedom you’ll feel when you leave that terrible job to finally work for yourself, how does it look? How will you feel? These are all visualizations. It helps you prepare your mind and physical responses for future events.

2. Work on Yourself

Work on yourself! People often underestimate the power of working on the “self.” You might say, I don’t need to work on myself, it’s everyone else who has the problem! In a perfect world, it’s everyone else’s fault but truthfully, we’re all in a constant state of evolution and change. The hustle and bustle of everyday life can wear us down and dull our sense of awareness. The stress of trying to balance everything at once can lead down a dark road to a point of no return. Truthfully, if we would focus on ourselves and the way we feel physically, mentally and emotionally we could make huge progress in becoming who we are meant to be. Making small adjustments will have a huge impact on how you feel about yourself. Prepare yourself for the life you want by setting boundaries that will help to hold you accountable. Be kind to yourself but be realistic about the things that prevent you from functioning at your highest level.

3. Celebrate The Success Of Others

Now I know you might ask what the success of others has to do with my own? I can assure you that when one person wins, we all win! I am inspired by the success of others because it reminds me that it can happen for me as well. Cheering on and supporting the success of other people immediately propels the efforts of your own endeavors. The energy used to feel love and support for your friends, family or colleagues circulates the atmosphere and makes a deposit right back into you. Celebrating the success of others lifts your vibration to another level and solidifies your connection to the things you desire the most.

In times where I have worked hard trying to force success is where I have experienced the greatest failure. I’ve learned that my greatest accomplishments come at times when I least expect it. My philosophy is that we should let our hearts shine through all that we do and let our work speak for itself. These two things alone will attract every resource you will need in order to be successful.

Wigs are not new on the fashion scene. In fact, they seem to be more popular as they look more natural and people learn more about how to wear them properly. There are many types of wigs on the market, some manufactured in mass quantity and sold in local beauty stores as well as online. Women are quickly realizing the ease and convenience of wearing wigs but there are also precautions that should be conveyed.

As wigs grow in popularity, they have also contributed to a common issue for women, hair loss. For various reasons such as extended improper wear, excessive use of adhesives and ill-fitting caps, wigs have contributed to an already alarming problem for women. The greatest issue proves to be information and education concerning proper wear and care for those who wear wigs.

Growing in popularity are lace wigs. These are wigs that became popular on the big screen and have been popular now for many years. Lace wigs are made from a lace base, a high-quality lace material that resembles the scalp. The hair is attached by hand tying it to the lace for a more realistic look. When installed, the hand-tied hair looks as though it grows from the scalp. The average person can now purchase these wigs and use them at home with no outside assistance but problems can arise when adhesives are introduced.

The adhesives were originally created for use with lace wigs based on their use in movies and plays when actors would need the style to remain in place for the duration of their work. When everyday people use these products, it creates a huge problem, beginning with proper placement and application to the skin. Allergic reactions, overuse of product and extended wear have caused adverse reactions for some users.

Below are some tips to consider if you plan to purchase and wear a lace wig in the near future.

  1. There are various types of lace wigs such as 360 lace meaning the entire wig is made from lace, lace frontal meaning the portion of the wig from one ear to the other is made from lace and the rest is made of tracks sewn to a cap. Lastly, there are lace closure wigs, meaning a 4 x 4 section of the wig is made of lace while the remaining portion is made from tracks sewn to a cap.

  2. The adhesive is not always required to wear lace wigs. With new technology and better manufacturing techniques, wigs are not bound to the old way of doing things. A proper fitting lace wig can be worn securely without the use of adhesive.

  3. It is highly recommended that you try on a lace wig before you buy it. You may find the wig does not provide you with the security that you need without adhesive. The last thing you want to do is buy a wig only to realize you don’t secure wearing it.

  4. You will need to cut the lace before wearing the wig. Usually, a small portion of excess lace is left on the front of the wig and will need to be cut before wearing.

  5. You will need to wear a flesh-toned wig cap underneath your lace wig to maintain a natural appearance.

  6. If you are uncomfortable installing a lace wig using adhesive, please seek the assistance of a licensed hairstylist. This will save you time and your hair in the end.

Happy Styling!
