Hello, thanks for posting your regimen. I have come across your gorgeous hair a few times on Hairlista and I want to know your wig regimen if you don't mind. I notice that you wear them most of the time. I am a wig hoarder, but I always feel weird wearing them. Did you go through this? I want to wear them to work, but I dont want all of the attention. My hubby hates when I wear wigs also. How do you keep your hairline protected from breakage?

@LaQT. My husband hates them, too. I daon't use the combs in the nape area. I rely on bobby pins for hold. I'll do a detailed post tomorrow. At first I felt weird, but you get use to it. Now, I feel weird wearing my own hair, lol.
