So one of my Instagram followers suggested that I attempt to do an unboxing via ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). Without getting too technical, this is the process of, when used on video, used to ‘massage’ your brain.

So in the midst of my blogs, I had an idea. I’d been seeing videos about ways to install hair units and the ‘best’ and safe methods. Some methods only last a day, which left me a bit discouraged and seeking a longer lasting method to safely secure my hair units and without the worry. Enter two known methods: BMB and Cling products. Let’s begin with my intro. This should be fun🎈🎈🎈 Check out the initial post
