Good luck everyone! I baggy-ed under wigs last year and it worked tremendously

I'm in! I just bought the human hair mommy wig and I now have 3 shorty 'do's that I love. My hair is currently past APL and I work out 3-4 days per week so moisturizing and sealing and putting my hair in a French braid has been working for me the last few weeks. I can't say that I will wig it 100%, but I will wig it 90% of the time. When it's summertime in LA, there's just no relief, you almost want to shave your head to get cool. Plus, I like to have access to my hair and scalp to make adjustments if I need to to prevent any damage if something goes awry.

My wig should be in this week! I moisture and seal daily as in and co-wash and deep condition weekly. My regimen is pretty rock solid and so far so good with my length and retention. I think wigging it will help me step it up a notch so that I can have that @pre_medicalrulz retention!! LOL

Hi guys! So happy to be apart of this challenge! I'm currently APL and hopefully by wigging it I'll be BSL. I ordered some wigs from Lacewigsfront and I'll interchange between them. I wash my hair while in cornrows under the wig. I use a braid spray daily or as needed and seal with a leave-in and whatever oils I have available. I deep condition weekly and I do a Aphogee treatment every 2 months.

Good luck everyone! Happy hair journey!

Anyone have tips on synthetic vs human and how to care for the actual wig so it doesn't look busted?

I'm in
I currently wear half-wigs because my head is too big to buy a full wig without going the custom route.
I am probably going to make one really soon though .

How are you ladies keeping your wigs looking fresh? I am wanting to buy Creta Girl, but she is synthetic and I don't want to replace her every month. Does anyone know of a wig similar in style to Creta Girl, but with human hair? I wouldn't mind spending the extra money if that meant it lasted longer

I'm in!!!! I wore wigs for the most part of 2012 and it helped a lot. When March comes where I hope to have a decent length for buns, I will go back n forth between wigs and buns, .

I'm in! I would have spent all of this year in either a wig, u part or half wig if I continue for the last few days left of this year. I just made a new u part so I'm guessing I'll achieve my goal of wigging it for all of 2012 lol

my fave half wig is tammy before I relaxed, yasmine after relaxed

my fave whole wig is water lily/dream girl (basically the same just different brands)

and my fave u part before I started making my own is yunessa/spot light ( again same style just different brands)

I swish my synthies in diluted fabric softener to keep them fresh & last longer, I tend to get futura hair so I'll flat iron and re boil in the curls when they start to get ratty.

I also will use my clothes steamer to revive my curly/wavy units, not while on my head of course but on the wig head or hanger if not a full wig

good luck everybody, we can do this!

I'm in!!...I am wearing kinky twists now, but i will be taking them down in 2 weeks, wigs equal great retention for me because it keeps me aware of dc'ing and m&s nightly.....I am soooo close to BSL and and my plan is to get to (at least ) grazing MBL in 2013...i will wig it until its gets really hot this summer, then i will have to bun until fall.

Totally in, I discovered wigs in Sept 2012 and haven't taken it off since (figuratively of course! :P) Wigs are the bombbb and I hope I can do it for ALL of 2013. After my wetting/conditioning, I braid my hair in 4 braids as close to my head as I can because I can't cornrow, lol, and put my wig cap on and go! Wigs were my LIFESAVER this past semester, I was literally in a million places at once only coming home at night to sleep and gone by 8 am the next day. I didn't get to do a lot of stuff to my hair which was awesome because it helped me retain length but at the same time I want to try some new things such as: ayuverdic, oiling before conditioning, more regular trims, more protein, etc. Usually I only take my hair out and condition every 7-14 days because I am so busy. I also shampoo like every 1.5 months because I minimize oils so my hair doesn't have any build up. My length is all over the place now but it will probably go from BSL to APL or so soon because I have to cut it :/ I want to take photos though so I can feel encouraged during 2013. I need to find a good length shirt. Let's do this yall!!

Ladies please continue to post your regimen! I'm looking to make some changes to mine, particularly regarding caring for my edges while wigging it. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated!

It's supposed to be delivered today so I hope to play with it tonight when I get off work.

@strawbewie - what products did you use to wash and condition your wig?
