Finding out about Ultra Sheen's Crème Satin Press. Miracle product when it comes to blending. Use a generous amount and then flat iron it with a really hot flat iron and your hair gets soooo straight and shiny. Makes your hair look just like the indian stuff.

I'd also say finding out about Wagman was a good thing.

I'm anxioust to try EP, but a sistah has to budget.

And just the overall comraderie on the board. I love weave and it's great to be able to share this obsession with like minded individuals.

Its really tough to just pic one thing.... But in general this is where I learned how to do my own sew ins.

Sorry gotta add the learning how to curly perm weave hair myself.  That is a big one too....

I would say Remy hair (Thank tha lawd!!)any of it is better than the "human hair" I was getting from BSS

and LG and vapon cuz' those small cornrows were thinning my hair its fragile and I couldn't go back to that latex glue that broke it off even worse!Angry

I didn't know WHAT I was gonna do next when I realized I was going to have to stop the cornrowing, then I found out about LG and hair is getting thicker againSmile


Thanks Ladies!

Well Soulie,

   I would have to say all of the knowledge, tips, tricks of the trade, do's and don'ts, yeas and neh's, all the smiles, laughter, fun and drama of the BHM is what I have learned about weave.

  It's not just one thing, its a little of everything. Not to mention, my sisters on here have GOT IT GOING ON!

  Ladies, Let me hear it "NO BAD HAIR DAYS, ONLY PHAT WEAVES!" Clap

Hi Mckelle LG is liquid gold adhesive, it works really well, u just have to make sure your hair does not have any product on it especially not oil when u apply it. It comes out pretty easily with the LG remover and u can them from our pal Sherrie at

http://hairextensions101.com/main/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=26&vmcchk=1

Things were ok for a while with the sew-ins until I noticed my hair was getting thinner all over, I had more hair than the usual shedding when I took out the cornrows.
I tried all sorts of moisturizers(carrot oil, carol's daughter hair butter, mango butter etc.) but the problem persisted even though I didn't do the cornrows that tight.
So I gave up the sew-ins and switched to LG/tape when I found out about itSmile

I did find out from Koffee and Cookin' girl about a net weave where the hair is sewed to a net cap and there is only one cornrow. I'm thinking about trying that on the next install.

I'm not sure if the thinning issue was the braids or my hair does not like to be covered like that. My hair got thicker(and grew like crazy!!)
 when I wore individual braids doing the crown and glory method. All my hair is out between the wefts now.

I guess we'll find out when I try the net weaveSmile
