Growth and Retention on Natural Hair Using Lace Wigs

Hello again from Lacefora.com,
Want to give you an update on how my healthy hair growth journey is coming along thus far.  I have been double protective styling for the past year and a half using full lace and lacefront wigs while my natural hair is flat twisted underneath the wig.  My goal for 2011 is to get to full BSL by December 31st, I wasn't quite there when I last checked in September 2011, but I am not far away either.


I purchased a lacefront 14" Indian Remy yaki unit back in August and I have been wearing that in big curls that I curl with a 1 1/2" curling iron and then pin curl it to maintain the look throughout the week.  I have been alternating between the Ozone Aplus Brandy wig and the yaki unit up until now, but I recently purchased an It's A Wig Synthetic Braided Lacefront wig that I will be experimenting with for the next month or so.












Besides my major setback in September where I accidentally fried off a 1 1/2" section of hair that I was flat ironing for my length check which was devastating to say the least, I would have to say that I am definitely seeing length retention and growth using lace wigs as my protective style over my protective/low manipulation style for my natural hair.  I am joining a No Heat Challenge for 2012 on LHCF that won't allow me to put any heat to my hair for the whole year, so I will not be focusing on length for next year, I will just be focusing on the health of my hair strands. 
My natural hair care regimen is still pretty simple, it consists of pre-pooing overnight before every wash which is every 1-2 weeks with sulfate free organic shampoo followed by either Suave Humectant conditioner or Giovanni Deeper Moisture Conditioner.  I towel dry in a turbie twist, then spray my hair with Aphogee Keratin and Green Tea Reconstructer and Essential Oils Lavendar Detangling Leave in spray.  With my hair damp from the leave in sprays I then part my hair into 4 sections and apply Mixed Silk Leave in conditioner followed by either grape seed oil or avocado oil for sealing.  Once the hair has been moisturized and sealed I flat twist my hair into about 8-12 twists then pin all the ends up with bobby pins.  This allows my hair to be as flat as possible underneath the lace wig for a more natural look.
