@Misti and JonesR: I rec'd my hair today from Demure Tresses, but it looks used. It's been washed, I can smell the shampoo, but the tracks look like glue was on them. I've bought hair like this before for my last trip to Mexico (w/ the same sad appearance), and I remember it didn't hold up well when I put conditioner in it. It got matted and tangled really bad. I'm worried about this hair big time. I wanted to know how your hair looked when it arrived? I got the 12-14 in straight/wavy Indian hair.

AfricanVenus,

 

That doesn't sound right.  My Hair looked really nice not tattered at all! If you are unhappy email her and ask her to send you more hair and send that stuff back. Did you talk to her personally or just ordered online? I would say to call her she is a really nice girl she willl make it right

When i washed mine it help up really well. I wash it about 4-5 times and it looked the same after each wash.

 

Sorry about your bad experience :(

I have been in regular contact w/ the owner, and she is very nice. She was very professional about my concern. She offered to take them back and I would have to wait until she rec'd a new batch to replace them. I declined though. The reviews are really good and she said she didn't notice anything at all when she shipped it. I figure she's the expert. Won't go looking for something that isn't there. Maybe I'm used to the store-bought kind that's wrapped up all pretty and the tracks look clean. I think I was just underwhelmed by the appearance. Hopefully it'll all work out. Thanks for your reply!

Ladies,

        I could really use some advice on hair :) I don't usually wear weave- but I'm planning to for the wedding. But no clue- on what type- I want to wear a side bun with curls/the messy look. I don't think a sew in will work for this, not sure if tracks glued in will be best-- and I've been reading about the clips, on here. But i don't really understand how they work.... Any advice would be great! Thanks.

A sew in can definitely work as long as its not a full sew in.  If you have them leave all of your edges out then it'll be fine for a bun.  I'm doing a side ponytail with loose curls and that's what I'm doing to do.  You could have tracks glued in, but if you plan to get in the water while your there, don't count on it holding up for a long time.  I don't know anything about the clips, so can't really help you with that! :)

I'm w/ Royal Bride. If you leave your edges out, then the look you're trying to achieve will work best w/ a sew-in. I would not advise glue due to the heat and it damages your hair. I likewise don't know anything about the clips, but there are many videos with tutorials that explain how they work. I want to swim and be active during my wedding, so a sew-in will work best for me. Ask you stylist for more options.

Hey ladies,

 

Ok so I really need yall (sorry I'm for GA lol) help! I have a disorder which causes my hair to thin. Sorty like male pattern baldness. So, deciding on a hairstyle for my wedding is really hard. I only have a few options I believe.

 

Option # 1.  A full sew-in. Now I had a sew in before but she left my front edges out before and this was not good because my hair is so thin that I always have to make sure the tracks were not showing (and a lot of the time they were) Now everyone loved my hair but no one new all the trouble I was going through.

So with a full sew-in I would not have to worry about that. However, with a full sew-in I believe I will be restricted and what I could do with my hair. For example, I would not be able to put it up in a ponytail and I will not be able to get wild (lol) during the TTD.

 

Option # 2. Get micros with human hair and style it in a side messy bun for the wedding.

 

Ladies, what do you think it best? Do you know of any other options?

 

Thanks so much

 

LaToya

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
