Eco Style Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil Get-Glued Front Lace Under-Wig Styling Bond

Wigs have been a trend for years that offers not only various amazing hairstyle changes whenever we please, but also provides our natural hair with protection from the manipulations of everyday styling. Wigs offer multiple benefits, but one thing that seems to be a major concern is knowing which glues and gels to use to secure these wigs. There are glues that offer a hold for long periods of time, such as two weeks. There are also gels that keep the lace secured for a few hours. But, sometimes that product that falls exactly in between the two is needed.

Eco Style is mainly known for their eco style gels infused with diverse oils to suit different preferences among consumers, that are used for multiple purposes. But, they have their own version of Got2B Glued made specifically for wig installations AND provides an extreme 48 hour hold! This gel is called Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil Get-Glued Front Lace Under-Wig Styling Bond. It can be found in a yellow 6oz (177mL) tube with an opening that makes it suitable for applying with an object, by hand, or by directly applying to the area where the wig will be placed!

Some share concerns about glues and gels as there are numerous horror stories of edges being removed along with wigs. But this lace wig styling bond is water-based, making its removal extremely simple! Not only that, but it is also infused with black castor oil , flaxseed oil and babassu oil, which helps keep the hair moisturized under the wig, prevents itchiness, and keeps your scalp protected overall!

Directions:
For wigs: Apply a generous amount to the area where the wig will be placed. After a few moments, place the lace wig as desired, use a comb to flatten and smooth out the lace if necessary. For a quick dry, use a blow dryer..
For styling: Massage a generous amount through your hair and sculpt to your desired style.

Shea Moisture has been catering to all hair care needs since the year 1912, developing shampoos, leave-in conditioners, hair masques and conditioners among many other products.

Many of us have lived through the horrors caused by heat damage. A great amount of us have used our straightening or curling iron too excessively and it resulted in our hair becoming damaged. Remember the thinning hair? The breakage? The trimming of our hair to grow it out all over again? Hair growth is so important to all of us, so who really wants to have to start fresh with growing their hair when heat damage can be prevented? Luckily for us, there is a product that can protect our hair from the damage that can be caused by heat styling tools!

Hair Selection is proud to carry the Hair Polisher Heat Protector Straightening Serum from the Fantasia ic Inter Cellular brand. The original Hair Polisher Heat Protector Straightening Serum can be found in a 178 mL (6 fl. Oz.) bottle. The new look that the Fantasia ic brand is now carrying comes in two different forms: the heat protecting spray that can be found in an 178 mL (6 fl. Oz.) spray bottle and is 50% more free OR the heat protecting serum that can be found in an 236 mL (8 fl. Oz.) bottle and is 100% more free! Each of these heat protectors are more on the fluid side in terms of consistency. And, where scent is concerned, although there isn’t much of a scent, there is a feint sweet smell present!

The Hair Polisher Heat Protector Straightening Serum/Spray can be used on any hair texture! Its purpose is to protect your hair and that is exactly what it does! Through using this product before using heated styling tools, you will definitely see a huge difference in the way that your hair looks and feels after applying heat.

  • Section your hair and apply just enough the serum to your hair
  • Comb the section of hair to ensure that the serum is evenly spread and covering all of your strands for protection
  • Use your straightening/curling iron to straighten/curl the section of hair
  • Complete this until your style is complete
  • Spray:

Note: You can use the spray on both dry and damp hair

In recent times, they have expanded and introduced new lines to their large variety of amazing products for healthy hair. One of these lines would include the Rice Water product line.

Hair Selection now carries the Mielle Clay Masque from their Rice Water Collection. This clay masque comes in a stout 8 oz (227 g) jar with a shiny pink lid and wrapping.

Most hair products are specifically made to be used in hair only, but this clay masque is useful in providing both a hair and skin detox, as it is notably used in hair and on the body to remove impurities. Although it does remove impurities from the hair and body, it does so without stripping it of its natural moisture. In fact, it actually deposits moisture back into the hair and skin, leaving it more moisturized and hydrated than it was prior to the use of the product.

An image can be found on the wrapping of the product that portrays rice (rice water) and a citrus fruit that is a hybrid of mandarin orange called Yuzu. The both of these ingredients are the major ingredients found inside of this product that promote all of the benefits that hair and skin can obtain from using this product.
