  1. Comb the hair of your human hair wig gently before washing.Use a wide-tooth comb and gently pull it through the hair to smooth out tangles.
  2. Submerge your wig in warm water; make sure it is not too hot. Put some of the wig shampoo into the water your wig is submerged in. Do not bring to a lather through scrubbing as you would with your normal hair; wash the hair gently by swishing or soaking the wig in the shampoo water and gently run your fingers through the strands. It is very important that you do not use any scrubbing or rough motions on the hair or the lace, as this could cause damage.
  3. When you are finished shampooing your wig, rinse it gently but thoroughly until the water runs clear with no more shampoo suds.
  4. If you would like, you may also condition your wig, but it is very important that you stay away from the roots! This is because conditioner undoes knots, and the hairs in your wig are all knotted in place, so using conditioner around the roots could cause the hair to fall out of your wig.
  5. If you choose to condition your wigs, allow the conditioner to soak into the hair for a couple of minutes. It is also recommended to use leave-in conditioner every couple of weeks as this is less work and has a more lasting effect. Just remember, as with normal, rinse-out conditioner, to stay away from your wig's roots to avoid the hair unknotting and falling out.
  6. If you choose to use rinse-out conditioner, rinse your wig once again, this time in cold water. Gently squeeze the excess water from the wig, being careful not to use too much friction in order to avoid damaging your wig.
  7. Again using your wide-tooth comb, detangle the hair as you did prior to washing. In order to avoid tangling, begin at the top and work your way gently to the ends.
  8. Similarly to how you'd towel-dry your own hair after washing it, roll the wig up in a towel and gently squeeze it (again, without causing too much friction) to get any extra water out without damaging the wig.

After washing,put your wig on wig stand and let it air dry. Make sure it is in an area that is out of direct sunlight, as this can cause damage. If you are in a hurry and need to use a hair dryer, it is very important that you use it on the cold air setting instead of using hot air, as this can also cause damage.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
