Always experimenting...yep, that's me. So THIS time, I ordered my hair with "extra lace" left on. Usually, i have all of the extra lace trimmed off and I use my tape all around the perimeter and safegrip glue on the last 1/2" of hairline. This time, my…

Sheesh, I can't believe it's been THREE years since I found HD! I just happened to be updating my profile today and I realized I joined on June 4, 2006. Time sure does fly!!! I don't remember what my very first post was, but I know that I found one of…

Squeaky Clean Scalp

by Babe with a Mane  |  Thursday, June 18, 2009 3:51 PM

So, before you start looking at these pictures I want you to know...I tried to get some good hair shots for you, but I was so busy being a tourist, I didn't get many. To add insult to injury, the ones we did get??? Well, let's just say - Las Vegas is…
