Hey ladies!

Basically, I'm trying to find some type of hair extension for my hair! I like to alternate between kinky curly and light yaki hair so i need something that lasts long and is easy to maintain without damaging the extensions and my own hair. I also don't want any of my hair out, maybe just a little bit of the hairline and the nape, so a closure or frontal must be able to be added. 

Right now (and the past 7 months), what I'm doing with my hair is keeping it braided underneath wigs. I'm trying to grow it from EL (ear length) to MBL (midback length) so I just want it to stay braided and grow. I want some type of extension where I can easily be able to moisturize my hair everyday and wash my hair and DC my hair every week and still have it look good. I'm using a glueless lace front but it's annoying trying to get the part to match up when there's nothing to adhere it to! I'd use glue but I hear it's damaging and I don't want the wig on for like 7 days straight. (I also tried alternatives like sewing it down, using spritz/hairspray, and gel for adherence and also the band method, sewing a band on to make it lay flat). I also don't like that the wig seems to shed A LOT! 

What should I do? Haven't had a sew in since September 2010 and with my lack of transportation I won't be able to get to a salon as frequently to maintain it. Wigs aren't too bad, but I use a cochlear implant where I must attach it to my scalp. Using a wig and a wig cap interferes with the implant connecting to my skull because there's a magnetic piece underneath. So basically, I need something that allows me to get to my scalp above my ear without ruining the style of the extensions. 


Any ideas? Sorry if it's so long, I just don't want to waste anyone's time having them post things that I'll just disregard. Like clip in extensions lol. I'm also not too good with this extension thing, only used clip ins, wigs, and few weaves.

I have seen several PT in the ER wear falls with the implant . Do you recall the rapper Foxy brown ? She made a video on how she can wear a weave etc with her implant . I see a few pictures of her online . Not really a good example , but maybe you can get a idea of how it would work . I think a fall would be your best option due your inabilty to travel .

Not sure , but you can purchase or make a custom one to leave only a small amout of hair out . Many ladies on the site make wigs and all types of partials  . Maybe one will see your topic to help .Smile

Thanks, but I don't want any of my hair out. I 'll find a way to use the CI. I haven't been using it for the past 7 months because of the wigs, I'm sure it won't make any difference if I don't use it. 

Anyone else know anything?

i think she meant she wish she would have said something about not wearing the device and it really not making a difference. a lot less thinking/searching power could have been saved if she would have not even mentioned it, if it doesnt matter to her if she wears it or not anyway..
ya feel me?
