Happy New Year! Welcome to my very first post of the new year! In light of the obvious chances to my site, i’m super excited to tell you about all the plan I have for 2018.
First things first I did this awesome photoshoot with my photographer (@sheepishnarco) to start my versatile series I plan to showcase on my channel. Last year I promised more visuals of different hair styles so this year I want to keep it going with more and more hair ideas for you guys to recreate or get some ideas from. I will show this not only with my own hair but also through protective styles.
Secondly, I will be bringing more healthy hair tips to my channel. Since I’ve been in cosmetology school it has inspired me to learn more about the ins and out of healthy hair. I will be trying out different teas, products and anything else i can get my hands on to dibble and dab in things that can contribute to healthy hair on my channel. It’s so amazing all the components that make up one strand of hair it just reminds me of how amazing god really is.
Lastly, I’ve been doing some giveaways on my channel in the month of December and I decided to announce the winners all here! I had lots of fun going to the store picking up all the products and tools for you guys! Im sure this giveaway was well over $100 but, I wanted to show my appreciation and further more help you guys start off your hair journey the right way this year.
I’ve announced a winner already on my give away video but got no response so these are the current winners. I took in consideration all the rules of the contest plus familiar names of my consistent supporters.
The Winners are:
#1 Wendy Wallace
#2 Stephanie Beauvais
#3 Lashawnta Gandy
#4 Libby L
#5 Millennial Diva
Congrats to all the winners! Thanks for all the support! Please Email me at Bwigfall@outlook.com to claim your prize with your name and address!
So many times I have witnessed ladies on youtube showing off their hair but they NEVER show in detail the true condition of it. This became important to me and my channel because I do not want to portray my journey as perfect because it is far from it! Instead I want to take my friends along with me and show my obstacles and how I over come them!.
In 2016 my hair was at its peak! It was the best it had ever been! It was So beautiful and every inch of my hair seemed to be growing in unison with the other. This is #HAIRGOALS to me. A full healthy head of hair is what I strive to have everyday.
Just to show a screen shot from my photo shoot it seemed like every hair on my head fell at the same position. I was so happy with the look of my hair and I tried very hard to keep it this way. But then life happens and I had a couple set backs and the beginning of 2017 I decided to chop off more than I need to cut and get layers for a new look, you know a new feel.
This video shows just that, 6 months post my mini chop trying to get the pieces of my hair back together again! It’s definitely growing and the cut made me realize that un-layered hair is more me!
Like anything in life you have to be real with yourself to be able to identify a problem and fix it! These sections will make you see your hair for what it is and make you face the truth to help your hair in the long run! Getting on camera and showing the world your flaws is as real as it gets! If you get the courage to post it on social media and tag me!
Who would of knew that the Journey would get so much BUZZ! I can see that so many people are loving these episodes (and hating lol) and I will keep them coming! It’s funny because I started the journey for my subscriber to see more relaxed women but I find myself learning so much from interacting with these beauties.
It’s so rewarding learning from other women about hair care in general because the truth is, one person doesn’t know it all! Two minds are better than one!
The purpose of the Journey is to show how confidence exudes out of women of color. How working towards a healthy hair goal can be a journey we all take together. In this new day and age we can put away the straight hair stereotypes and the “true meaning” of relaxers because there is a new definition. WE DEFINE the style of our hair and own it with truth.
With the many perm rod set tutorials on YouTube I never came across one that was demonstrated on relaxed hair with a BIG voluminous end result. I wondered why I couldn’t find what I was looking for and that made me want to come up with something myself, so I did.
All relaxed hair is different but what I do know is that shrinkage for natural ladies is on their side when it comes to styles holding and even looking great after a few days. With relaxed hair we have to think of what makes our hair flourish in a style and what will make it hold without being too hard and still have movement.
So with that being said I came up with the BEST way to achieve this style for relaxed, texlaxed, and natural haired ladies. The products that were used are:
