    This wig is so gorgeous! It looks great on the model, but I wonder how it would look on me. If it looks great on me I would need multiples in different colors :laugh:

    1. Like this post. Done

    2. How long do you plan on wigging it? During the winter months.

    3. How will you take care of your hair while using the wig/phony pony? Weekly deep conditioning, 2-3 days moisturizing my ends through the week and some scalp massages with oil. I'll be keeping my hair in box braids and only wear my wig when I go out.

    @trclemons I've been trying to find a wig with those types of bangs. It never looks good on me :cry3::lachen:
    Yours looks great on you.

    I WANT this wig!!! It's $179 dollars. Nerp!I need me a 'wig' job: a job that I do that generates income solely for wig buying.

    18 inches, 150 density and human hair. Here's the buy link.

    https://www.hairvivi.com/victoria-j...raight-virgin-human-hair-lace-wig.html?ref=45

    She is right. Hairvivi is working some kind of voodoo because these wigs don't look like wigs. She cut a bit of baby hair and then all she did was put it on her head and used some gel to glue down the edges. :eek:

    Ladies how are you protecting your edges under the wigs.? My edges are very thin.

    I drench mine in castor oil before putting the wig on. This won't work if you use got to be glue to keep the lace down, because the gel won't stick to the oil.

    This blogger wears swig caps under her wig, which is on my "to try" list: http://www.primadonna-style.com/2014/08/swigcap-pure-silk-wig-cap-review.html

    There are also satin ones: http://www.gmbshair.com/stonsahaca.html

    Something else I would suggest is to limit the amount of time you wear your wig. I don't wear mine at home, and it's the last thing I put on before I leave the house. Also, no sleeping, coloring, etc. in the wig. Nothing where your wig would be moving around and rubbing on your hairline.

    I put mine in behind my hair line. I also sowed a string of satin around the perimeter of my wig.

    The WIG GRIP!!!! best thing ever. Plus I have been faithfully using Edge Entity morning and night. I wash my edges each time I was my face (morning and night) to remove any residue from styling products. And finally I massage almost daily.

    Wig grips are amazing! Except I have a huge head so mine is getting stretched out a little. :lol:

    @Chicoro I just bought this unit for my mom as a Christmas gift! They’re having a Black Friday sale for $30 off their lace front wigs and $40 the 360 lace wigs. I paid $144 for the unit. I also ordered one of their kinky curly units for myself :-3
    The reviews for this company online are wonderful. I can’t wait to see my mom try on the hair! I think it will suit her well.

    I spritz my hair nightly with my DIY liquid leave in and I alternate between adding creamy leave in to my hair or JBCO/HBCO to my scalp. I put on my plastic cap and bonnet and massage my scalp (with special attention to all of my perimeter) and GHE overnight.
