Sensationnel Synthetic Lace Front Wig "Tiara" Review

I decided I’d try growing out my hair and getting it healthier through protective styling first before I resort to the big chop. Thus, I purchased some wigs, and now I’m an addict.

Alas! The spring semester is finally done, and my inspiration to write has returned. I figured the first subject I should write about are the products I’ve been using constantly as of late, so let’s do this!
