Lace Xclusive......

So if you know me,you know I am a proud weave wearer!

The only problem is,I am sooo scared of change!I knew I was ready to go from my functioning hair store brands into a more exotic look that lasted longer....So I went on the hunt to find the PERFECT virgin hair for me.....

What is virgin hair?
Refers to hair that is completely unprocessed, and intact. To qualify as virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached, chemically processed in any way. This also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction. Usually, it also means that is has not been blow-dried, nor exposed to harsh agents such as cigarette smoke and drugs (Taken from Dream Girls Hair )

So in July after seeing the MANY tweets from model, Amiyah Scott ( @AmiyahScott ) about her fab hair from Lace Xclusive , and spending about 15-20minutes on the phone with the owner, I finally made the leap and bought some!

Can we say, IN LOVE?

Now once again, if you know me I was a very faithful 2 packs of 18inch Chocolate 1/1b kinda gal, but this hair is AMAZING! Since late July, I have washed it,traveled in it,curled it,flat ironed it,etc....Needless to say Im pretty rough on any hair I buy so it has to take a beating! I can't wait to buy more! I think I see a 26inch in my future....

The texture is soft, the color matches mine perfectly( I stopped dying my hair jet black),it shipped quickly,the bundles were neatly packaged and it was surprisingly affordable! I purchased a 20/22/24 for $309.99 including shipping and handling, most other retailers are charging $400+. These three bundles were enough for a full install with some left over!

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date. The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days.... Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree? So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education. via GIPHY I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit.......... I was scared. Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying. While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain... I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like

So I go back to see the plastic surgeon days following the MRI.... She admits that the mass sitting there needed to be removed and it would be better in the long run for it to be gone for my desired results regarding her surgery. I asked her about doing the surgery with the other surgeon .... She starred at me And I starred at her... 'Well, we could do it, but just so you know this is going to a lot and this makes the possibility for infection higher'  (Now seeing how I have a HUGE mass on my uterus the size of a child, I would imagine this would hurt) '......But there is no sense in cutting twice, if our schedules can permit this we will do it' I looked up at her and asked 'Well can you get a picture of the skin you are going to cut? I want to see it...' She laughed and agreed. Now this is literally the best news I had heard in weeks.... However  we had a few variables..... a-The plastic surgeon made it painfully clea
