    Hey Katy!
    What a great journey (in all ways) !!!
    I've also seen pics you've posted over time -- and think you look great in all of them -- but you've never looked as happy as you look in the one posted here, second from last on page 1 where you're getting the curls. You look beautiful and you're just glowing! Wonderful!

    It's a bit hard to tell for sure from the photos, but it looks like your bio hair is kind of wavy/curly and the fall is a bit straighter in texture. I imagine that the fall must be blending very well as you are so happy. Are you having to curl or style it or do anything special for it to blend well?

    I love your last photo -- very sassy!

    You know if I lived closer I'd be making a trip to Flora's. My hair has never looked as good as any of those heads.

    Maybe one day...

    You know actually I noticed that myself when I posted the pictures. The smile was more genuine and I'll be the first to admit that it is.

    I am genuinely happy with this hair in a way that I haven't felt in years. Words really can't express it.

    Yes, you are spot on. My own hair is very curly. Flora's suggestion was to keep my fall curled until my own hair grows out a few more inches. Once it gets to a certain length, the weight will pull the curl out to where it just looks fuller.

    For the first two weeks after I got home, the curl she put in it there stayed and the blending was darn close. Then the past two weeks, I was a bit reluctant to put heat to my beautiful hair, so I chose to tame my bio hair instead. :whistle: lol

    I would put Aussie curl tamer on my my hair while it was wet after a shower, and while it didn't get rid of the curl, it was controlled enough to look nice and blended.

    One thing I have noticed, is that my bio hair needs to be clean in order for it to look really good. I suppose because the fall hair is such high quality and naturally shiny, so I have to wash my bio hair every day in order to make sure my own hair looks that good. Otherwise there is a difference in the 'look' of the hair between the two points.

    Last night I broke down and curled her using a flat iron, and today she is as curly as an 80's movie star's hair! lol. I do like that I can have different styles everyday. One day put up. The next day left down and with a headband. Other days a simple ponytail.

    That is SO beautiful! I am a little bit teary-eyed for you. You look so happy. And that hair actually looks a lot like my own hair– it gives me hope. I'm so jealous you got to go into her shop in person. I loved the photo progression and the shot of the "hair wall".
  16. You are simply radiant while she gives you the curls ^^ also is the best hairstyle on you IMHO
    bouncy and with volume at the chin :punk:

    Have u noticed any soreness or anything from the clips? I have a fall too, but I don't wear it too often. It barely feels a little thick to me. I love the length of yours!

    Yes, the front on my scalp (like the widow's peak area) has had a little soreness. Nothing extreme, but I got a few bumps, and the area looked slightly red.

    I think part of it was the newbie mistake of being so forceful with how I was attaching the clips (thinking it needed to feel super tight and 'secure') and also not doing a good job of using the other clips to relieve the pressure on the front clips.

    Now, once my day has started, I can tell if I've got it too tight and I just loosen it up a bit.

    One thing that frustrates me is that, the very front of my hairline is where i have used tape for several years, so the hair is sparse and shortest there. Once I get that to grow to a decent length that hair will blend in really nicely, but for right now, it's just not good enough to help with that. :shakehead:

    On a happy note, it really doesn't make the hairline look bad, but I know it will be neat when that little widow's peak area grows back right.

    Also, what do you mean by 'it barely feels a little thick to me'? I don't really understand what you mean. You mean the fall feels too thick, or that it feels like there is not enough there to feel thick?
