Blondie’s Custom Wigs

Blondie’s Custom Wigs

Neutrals

What started out as a last minute addition to a Halloween costume has blossomed into a new passion! Wig making!

This summer I fell in love with crochet. It was so easy to switch my hairstyle up & have a new do in 2hrs or less! I ran into a problem though. I had this HUGE hair -& I LOVE me some big hair- but this was so big I was struggling to pull shirts over my head & it didn’t even fit in a bonnet at night!

I thought if I could take this hair off at night it would make it sooooo much easier! Did a little research, headed to my local beauty supply & viola!

I noticed when buying a wig you’re at the mercy of the company in hopes they make the color wig you want -a problem I face often with blonde hair) & even if they do there’s still the issue of whether or not the store has it in stock. Instead of carrying pre-made wigs, each one is handmade & the color is customized to the customer.

Place your custom order!!

Here’s a few of my creations thus far:

Baby it’s cold outside!

Winter’s bitter wind & chilly temps have been attacking your tresses! Or perhaps you’ve had that protective style in so long you’re forgetting what your real hair looks like! These are the steps I take to repair my hair & give it a little TLC.

This is also how I do a wash & go in the winter -cause nobody got time for dripping wet hair during flu season!

Curly Hair Questions

Curly Hair Questions

Neutrals

Our hair does amazing things & there are so many textures, colors and types! “Black hair” encompasses a VERY broad spectrum so people, expand your mind beyond that teeny tiny box that says it’s either weave or it’s nappy.

I get that people don’t know but some things people ask are just ridiculous!! Here are some of the Curly Hair Questions I get almost daily:

Is that a wig?

Lol! No. & no you can’t touch it.


Can you do my hair like that?!

No, I’m not a hair stylist. But you can watch how I did it on YouTube.


How does your hair do that?

 

I went to bed with my hair twisted, plaited, knotted, rolled or contorted some kind of way & more than likely it was not cute. lol! Believe Beyonce if you want, I did not wake up like this!


Natural hair is expensive! How do you keep up with all this?

It’s actually about the same. The difference is you thought having natural hair was just going to be easy when in fact, it’s still maintenance & you’re still spending money


Who colors your hair?
Jesus. No, I’m serious. It really grows this way



So you must be mixed

Yeah, with Black & African American

Well then you have to be Albino!

😑 No, no I don’t & no I’m not. No offense to Albinos but just because someone has light skin with light it doesn’t automatically make them an Albino

Rare Traits in Dark-skinned PeopleTwo naturally-occurring rare characteristics in dark-skinned people: blue eyes and blonde hair.

Who Stole What Now?!

Who Stole What Now?!

Plums

This generation is doomed.

Not the babies just being born but the ones in grade school right now, these 90’s babies. They got the game, the players, & life in general all effed up!

I was doing my usual peruse through the Shade Room & came across this:

MiMi put it nicer than I EVER could have! My response would’ve been along the lines of “Oh you poor, sad, ignant, misguided child! You should use the same phone you used to type that bulls**t to google ‘braids’ or ‘cornrows’, see who’s pictures pop up, learn something & then #sitdownandshutup”
So child -lawd I hope that’s a child & not somebody grown- you mean to tell me that you grew up with the Internet, have it at your fingertips, but you REFUSE to use it!! Google is not your enemy! & she’s always free .99!!

From Kendall Jenners “bold braids” to Kim & Khloe’s trendsetting boxer braids


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*insert the most dramatic eye roll ever seen*

Just because your “fave” wears or does something doesn’t mean they’re the originators. Hell just looking at the Kardashian-Jenner clan from the first years of the show to now you can see there isn’t much original period!

& no, I’m not hating. From time to time I too find myself keeping up with the Kardashian’s. The problem is when we (African Americans) do something it’s less than but when a white woman does it it’s now “trendsetting, unique and bold”!

Chile Bye

If you walk up to a random black woman on the street 9.99 times outta 10 she wore braids as a child, has some right now (under her weave counts) or plans on getting some for the summer.

Amandla Stenberg said it best but the main thing I want y’all to do is your research before you try to come for somebody -keyboard killers & thumb thugs especially!

Oh, also I need you to know & recognize that #BlackGirlMagic is real. We are beautiful, our hair defies gravity, our melanin is popping and you’re mad.  We don’t need your permission to do or be anything & whether have agree or choose to be bitter this movement ain’t goin nowhere.

Natural-Versary and Aunt Jackie’s CC Review

Natural-Versary and Aunt Jackie’s CC Review

Neutrals

This month marked 5yrs of me being on my natural hair journey!! 🙌


Lawd know this has not been has not been an easy one but definitely worth it!

I wanted to do a tutorial for you guys using Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils Flaxseed Recipes Collection… but I haven’t quite mastered how to record washing my hair in the shower. But I took pics throughout the process!

Here are the products that I used. Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils Flaxseed Collection is their newest line of products and are enriched with Flaxseed, Coconut, Apple Cider Vinegar, Mango Butter, Avocado, Shea Butter and more!

I started off with the Purify Me Moisturizing Co-Wash Cleanser to cleanse and condition my hair. I wore my last protective style for over 2 weeks so it needed the extra moisture. I like that this co-wash is not just conditioner, it also lathers and leaves my hair feeling clean but not stripped

  I followed with the Fix My Hair Intensive Repair Conditioning Masque, coating my strands from root to ends and detangling in sections. I let it sit for 5 minutes and my curls were popping honi!

Next with my hair soaking wet I made about 8 sections, applied the Seal It Up Hydrating Sealing Butter, finger detangled once more and two-strand twisted my hair -adding a little more product on the ends.

Before bed I pinned each twist criss-crossed them across my head to stretch them as they dried. The next morning I took them down and got these soft, yummy smelling coils!

I wanted more of a fro so that night I slept with my hair in a pineapple and in the morning I sprayed my hair with the Half & Half Hydrating Silkening Hair Milk, fluffed the coils and got this look

I continued to fluff, pic and moisturize my tresses with Half & Half Hydrating Silkening Hair Milk almost every morning along with a little water from my spray bottle and every other day adding some Seal It Up Hydrating Sealing Butter.

I finally achieved the stretched, fluffy fro I wanted! -I refused to post this until I did! lol! I’ve been getting compliments all day on how my hair looks and feels so soft and smells so good!

I recommend Aunt Jackie’s to all my naturalistas and curly girls out there! Especially the ones who have yet to find products that work for you and they smell AMAZING! For the guys with natural hair I highly suggest trying the Flaxseed Recipes Collection, it works well and the scent isn’t a tropical fruit bowl (which I LOVE), but instead it’s a pleasant neutral scent.

You guys tell me what you think about these styles, Aunt Jackie’s products and which styles I should try next!

For those who requested it, it’s long overdue but hey, better late than never! lol!

It’s my first Get Ready With Me & don’t worry, it won’t be my last!

So I was getting ready to go out & I love me some lashes when it’s time for me to hit these ATL streets! -or just when I wanna be Fabu *dramatic hair flip* lol! So I got the KISS True Volume Lashes in style “Posh” & Black Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe. Now I’ve only been wearing lashes for a few months & I’ve only used white/clear glue so I was a little apprehensive -but it looked great! I barely needed any eyeliner!

  Follow me on Snapchat!: BlondiesLipstk

I loved my look & I loved my lashes!! They were so lightweight that I forgot I had them on! They also look natural so they’re great for everyday use! -which I love because I can’t wait to wear them again!

You can find these lashes for yourself for less than $4 at Walmart (yes, you read that right!)

I received the KISS True Volume Lashes and Black Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe complimentary for testing purposes. All opinions are honest & my own.

Curls, Coils & Kinks: First Dominican Blow Out

Neutrals

My first Dominican Blow Out

Now I know this isn’t a new trend but it’s new to me -being that it’s my first one- so Imma tell y’all about my experience. Plus I know a lot of naturals shy away from it because of how much heat has to be applied to the hair. The way I look at it, it’s the same as junk food: You can have that greasy fast food burger once in a while but everyday & you’re headed to an early grave. You can put heat to your natural hair periodically but everyday & you’re gonna burn it all off! Everything in moderation!



  


This straight hair is taking some getting use to but I’m loving it! But then again every time I straighten my hair I contemplate becoming a “straight natural”. Right now I just want the rain to stop so I can enjoy it!

Christmas Day my poor lil hair didn’t stand a chance against that humidity!

What styles did you guys rock for the holidays? & do you have any tips for me to help combat this humidity?!
