Here is the blonde hair I received! This is a 120% density - strawberry blonde! It sure is beautiful hair, just a shade (or 7) off...tee hee! Babe…

So, you think Babe gets special treatment? Nope

Well, for years I've been telling you that HD isn't perfect, mistakes happen, yada yada yada. You probably read the blog posts and say to yourself, "Sure Babe. I'll bet those mistakes don't happen to YOU." Wrong. Mistakes are not dealt out in only one…

What Lies Beneath?

This morning I was searching for "hair related" topics online and I just happened upon an article about hair replacement. I thought it was pretty interesting. The Washington Post was reporting from a hair replacement company in DC. The pictures were similar…

Recommendaton - Not so typical

I'm not much of a movie buff. The last movie in a theatre I went to see was, "Under The Tuscan Sun" in 2003. Before you think I don't like entertainment, let me just say that I prefer to pay for a rental as opposed to a movie ticket. This year, we decided…

Happy Spring! Oh...and it's my birthday today too! You can celebrate the first day of spring, but do I actually have to celebrate yet ANOTHER year??? I guess I'm pretty darn lucky since I don't have any negative thoughts about turning....yeah right like…

Lesson - Babe's Method of Attachment

Some of you may read this blog immediately and some of you may read it 6 months from now. If you read this and it's an older blog, you may want to catch up with me to ask how I'm attaching currently. I experiment a lot and change my methods to try new…

Nobody knows I wear hair

by Babe with a Mane  |  Tuesday, March 17, 2009 7:39 PM

We pay attention because we don't have hair. No one else even thinks about it. After all, they don't have time to think about your hair, right? They have a job, a family, a house...responsibilities and commitments. No time to wonder whether or not we…

Please tell me this isn't really happening!!!

by Babe with a Mane  |  Sunday, March 15, 2009 6:12 PM

I try really hard not to impose my standards on others, but when I see something like this??? It makes me absolutely crazy. Please parents, don't do this to your daughters. Do you really want to be the one who fosters (and feeds) these insecurities in…

Let's talk "lights"...Highlights that is!

Daylight Savings Time has started again! YAY!!! Now that we have more daylight and those winter blues are heading for the backdoor, have you decided how you are going to celebrate your spring? I say we should all think about "lighting up"! Of course I'm…

Recommendations - L'Oreal EverPure Sulfate Free shampoo and conditioner

by Babe with a Mane  |  Thursday, March 05, 2009 8:20 AM

I have used Pureology Nanoworks for years because I couldn't find anything that kept my hair shiny, soft and silky. I usually end up running out to the store each time I see a new commercial or an ad promising the perfect hair! I always end up with a…
