My Experience Wearing a Custom Wig Made with Indique Pure Wavy Closure

Somehow I’m still growing out my tapered hair cut. I’ve come a LONG way and with the help of my stylist Sheena at Queen Stylista’s Mane Artistry it’s on the right track to finally become something other than a tapered style. Now that my hair is in awkward stage I’ve been fighting with different things to do with it.

Defeat Natural Hair Dryness With Salon Inspired Products from Sally Beauty

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sally Beauty. My hair has undergone lots of changes. It’s been purple and blonde, styled in a tapered fashion, and even completely shaved off in an undercut style. It’s safe to say my hairstyles have run the gamut, and while this year I vowed to keep my styles a bit more toned down, I still haven’t been able to avoid dryness. A while back, I shared with you all how I identified where my dryness was coming from, but I’m still working to treat this problem.  I’m a product junkie,…
