Our guest blogger is back! We love Lauren Winans, and here's her latest update!

Hey guys! I am back again. This time, I want to tell you about a few different experiences I have had lately with my hair extensions.

Photo shoot for Gladys

I had a photo shoot for Gladys Magazine recently by Robert Covington and the photographer's wife, Jori, fixed my hair for the shoot.. They are an awesome duo. He is a great photographer and she is an amazing hair and makeup artist. She honestly had no clue that I had extensions until she started digging into it to curl! That is quite a compliment for Donna Bella! She curled my hair with a Bedhead 1/2 inch barrel, but it had huge curls. It is amazing how much better beauticians can fix our hair than we everyday, normal people! Below is a "behind the scenes" shot.

I visited my hair salon, Aura Salon Nashville last week to get some of my extensions replaced that had fallen out. I have had these for a few months now and only 3 to 5 pieces fell out and that is only because I can't ever keep my hands out of my hair! (BAD HABIT!)

Glynnis, my hair extension specialist, added 20 new pieces of fused hair to my head this week and made me feel all brand new and full again. We added the entire pack of hair because my hair is so healthy and growing so much that we figured we would add some more. She says that in May she would like to remove all the pieces and add all new hair, because I have had these in since late November/early December.

It is very important that you talk with your stylist about replacing and removing because they would hate for you to lose your real hair because of a silly mistake. Always make sure you are keeping up with your salon so that someone can check over your beautiful head of hair and make sure you are taking care of them properly. I can't stress enough to brush your hair at least 3 times a day and sleep in braided pigtails, ponytail, or any kind of braid! I only wash my hair every 2-3 days and maybe even 3 to 4 if I am lucky. The less heat you apply on your hair, the healthier it remains. Less mess, better hair!
