Honey Hair Company U Part

This evening, I made a purchase from Honey Hair Company.  For quite sometime now, I've been thinking about & surfing the web for human hair half wigs and even a front laces.  This morning, I logged onto YouTube & watched a video that inspired me.  The young lady's hair wasn't long but it was super duper healthy and that's what I'm all about on my personal hair journey.  She went on to say how she had stuck to the hair products that work for her and mainly covering her hair by utilizing her U Part wig.  I have always liked U Part wigs. But I do not have the skills nor patience to make my own.  Anyway, watching her video really got my mind stirring.  She inspired me even more than I already was, to elevate the health of my hair. 

I began thinking about a U Part wig & what hair would I purchase an& who makes them an& how much should I spend. Blah, blah, blah!!!  Okay, so I'm surfing YouTube again and then it hits me.  My girl Renee304, the one and only honey along with her Honey Hair Company.  On her YouTube page, she has a video showing how she washes her Honey Hair U Part.  Then once it was dry, she installed it. After viewing the video, I WAS SOLD!!! I purchased 3 bundles of hair which includes a complimentary U Part.  If I would've sent her another brand of hair, the cost for a U Part is $75.  Hopefully, my Honey Hair U Part gets to me before my trip to Florida at the end of this month. :-)

My Poo Cracks A Hair Joke!!

Here's the set up:  Earlier today I was apprehensive to tell my poo about a hair extensions purchase I made.  Mainly, because I spend a lot of money on hair products, salon appointments, weave, styling tools and pretty much anything else hair related.  Not only that, I have been known to spend hours and hours at a time watching hair videos on YouTube & surfing hair websites from my lap top.  Most nights, I fall asleep watching hair videos from my cellphone while in bed.  I know, I know I got it bad. But trust me, I have gotten WAY WAY WAY better.

So anyway there he and I were, sitting in our living room.  I was prepping myself to spill the beans.  I started off by saying, " Babe, I have a confession to make."  He goes, "what?" Then I proceed to tell him I decided to buy some extensions.  So you know what came out of his mouth next right?  "How much?"  All I could do was sit there, with this silly grin on my face.  Here's the funny part, or so at least I though it was. I guess you had to be there, LOL.  He sits next to me then spoke in this serious tone.  "You are way out of control. This is really bad.  At first, you were on hair journey. But now you're on a hair mission."  As soon as he said, "mission." I busted out laughing!

Bronner Bros. International Hair Show

Last year, I went to the Bronner Bros. International Hair Show in Atlanta, GA.  That was my first time ever going to a hair show.  The exhibition floor was like a massive flea market.  I'm debating on whether I should go this time around or not.  I would like to take advantage of the HUGE discounts from the hair companies that will be present.  Hair products from big name companies are sold at a significantly lower price as well as ceramic irons, hair dryers, wigs & hair extensions.  I was unaware of this my first time going so I didn't bring a lot of money.  This year, the event is being held February 18 -21, 2012.  If I end up going, I'll probably go alone.  My boyfriend went with me last year and it was pure torture for him.  I won't do him like that this year, LOL.  Below is my video footage from last year's event. Please excuse my commentary, you may find it quite annoying.  I was being over dramatic. Sorry, LOL!

Hair Update

   Last night I washed, conditioned & roller set my hair.  I am really pleased with the results!  Not only does my hair look healthy but it feels healthy too.  I tried some new hair products for the first time. I washed with KeraPro. (Shout out to EbonyCPrincess!)  I conditioned with generic Joico K-Pak Reconstructor.  Then followed that up with ORS' Replenishing Pak.  In my opinion, the ORS was the star player.  As soon as I applied it to my wet hair, it began to feel oh so soft.  I sat under the dryer for about 30 minutes before rinsing the ORS out.  For my roller set,  I used Nairobi wrap foam & Olive Oil Lottabody  ( 1 part solution, 4-5 parts water.)  Once my hair was finally dry (for the most part, lol) I moisturized with BioInfusion Olive Oil lotion & sealed with EVCO.  I have no complaints. All smiles here.  :-)  :-)  :-)

Do It Yourself?

   I've come to the conclusion that I am not fond of doing my own hair.  To be more specific: I hate washing it, conditioning it, roller setting it & then playing with the set.  But the main reason I do not like doing my own hair is because I TEAR MY BATHROOM DOWN EACH & EVERY TIME .  When I say I have water everywhere, I have it EVERYWHERE.  I have all of my products, spread out right in front of me with no type of organization.  One minute I have my comb and the next I have no clue where I put it.  I am a total wreck!  I'm far from high maintenance but I will admit that I'd rather relax at a shampoo bowl while someone else massages my scalp.  I'd also rather sit in a comfortable chair under a professional hooded dryer compared to the system I have now which is - I sit on top of 2 pillows on the floor with my back leaned up against the sofa while my dryer sits on the sofa so that the hood lands right above my head.  It's not comfortable at all, LOL!  So after tonight,  I think I'm calling it quits because the DIY method doesn't work for me.  My regular stylist charges $45 for a roller set but I go every other week.  So on the weeks that I don't go to her, I think I will go to this Dominican salon near my job.  But their hair products are cheap so I'm going to bring my own, pay them $20 and call it a day.  If only you could see the tornado that comes through my apartment on wash day!  Am I the only one that tears ISH up?
