Attachment vs. Time of the day?

Wednesday, September 02, 2009 3:55 PM  |  by Babe with a Mane

Just a quick tip!

Since I'm quite a morning girl, I used to attach during my morning routine. A few times, I have had a bit of trouble with the bond loosening in the first few hours. Recently, I changed to attaching in the evening - within a couple of hours of bedtime.

Guess what?! Odd as it sounds, I haven't had any trouble. I'm thinking it's because the attachment is fresh and then, when I sleep on it, the adhesive in the glue and the tape actually grab the lace better. Makes sense doesn't it? The lace actually has a weight (my head!) on it while it "cures"! I onto something here or is it just me imagining things?

I still won't be considered a night owl by any means, but maybe I'll stay up past 9?

tee hee


About Babe with a Mane

My natural hair has not been seen for over 20 years. It has hidden under wigs and weaves, under toppik, colored sprays, couvre and dermatch. My growing hair is a significant burden. It takes too much time to try to fix it up to be presentable, too much money to try to fix, too much energy to worry about and conceal. Every day, I used to wish for great hair. Every day I was ashamed of my thin hair. Every day, I woke up feeling confident, feminine and sexy inside. Then, I looked in the mirror at my natural hair and those positive thoughts were robbed from me. My natural hair forced me to feel unattractive, timid and insecure. I know who I am inside and I wanted to project that image to everyone else. To do that, my hair had to change. Women who are bald or have very thin hair, are not considered "socially acceptable" in the general public's eye. I wanted to be considered socially acceptable, my natural hair wouldn't let me. My dream hair allows me to lead a normal life. I wake up to my guy nuzzling my neck while my soft hair is brushed aside. I jump in the shower to wash my hair. I look in the mirror to see a confident and sexy woman, looking back at me. I don't waste hours trying to disguise myself to fit in. I blow dry and curl my hair and start my day with a spring in my step. I don't catch others staring at my thin hair while trying to have a conversation with me. The same confident, self assurance that I feel inside is now projected on the outside. There are no further internal battles between true persona and an incongruous outward appearance. I am finally, after a lifetime of dreaming, able to project an image that reflects the confident, sexy, intelligent, feminine woman I truly am.

That makes total sense to me! It's like the deoderant you put on only before bed time. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that your body is more relaxed and allowing the bond to set better while you are sleeping?! Or maybe I'm the one imagining things?! haha

That makes sense to me as I have found the same to be true for my bonding as well. Plus, I don't like having to rush in the morning before I go to work.
