#PerfectBlend Indique Hair and Beautiful Textures Contest

If you have been considering a protective style in the form of a weave Indique hair and Beautiful textures are teaming up for the ultimate giveaway- luxury hair extensions from Indique and a chance to try Beautiful Textures texture management system.

Indique is the first luxury brand of extensions I’ve ever had installed and the quality is some of the best I’ve used. I’ve been swimming in the hair, colored it, straightened it and the curl pattern has remained intact with minimal shedding or tangles. Trust me when I say this hair is worth the investment.

Here’s a pic of me wearing 2 tubes of Pure Wavy.
