    Have you guys already started the 2018 Challenge yet? I want to join. I wear wigs pretty much exclusively as protective styles and plan to continue this in 2018. My hair is currently straddling the line between MBL and WL and I'm trying to cross it by my Birthday in April 2018.

    I plan to wear a rotation of units I purchased from RPGHair and PremierLaceWigs. All bobs and I love every single one of them :lachen:.

    Tips on preventing hair line damage while wigging? And keeping the hair underneath moisturezed in general?

    And tips on buying or making type 4 natural hair wigs?

    My edges came back full since using the wig grip.

    Also, I just bought some satin lined wig caps. If you want I can post the link.

    I can't help with the wigs because I usually wear straight or body wave texture haha

    Yes can you post the link to the satin wig caps?

    So you wear both the wig grip and wig cap at the same time?

    I'd like the link to :yep:. I've been doing a bootleg version of this for a while, but I think I'd much prefer an all in one option.

    Ok ladies, blow dried my hair today and after measuring my hair I'm a cool 16 inches. After my trim, I'm still in the land of "longer then MBL, but not quite WL" :rolleyes:. Here is a shot of my hair post blow dry.

    Here is a pic of me wearing it

    I can’t link it directly from my phone but it’s the:
    150% Density Yaki Bob Hairstyle Indian Remy Hair Glueless Lace Front Wigs [LFW44]

    My wigs from Premier Lace Wigs are all 18 inch stock wigs, I customized and cut myself.

    Any of their stock wigs will do.

    I completely forgot about this!

    Basically, I almost never use got2be glue to lay down my wig, but I did on Saturday because I couldn't find my wig grip and I was going to a party. I went a little ham with the application because I wanted it to stay put but then I couldn't get it off no matter how hard I tried. So I yanked it off and took off a little bit of skin. Ouch.

    Oh no! I’m so sorry that happened! Next time splash some warm water on it. The Got 2b Glued dissolves easily in water, which is why it’s such a popular alternative to wig glue/tape. :)

    You are always smiling! I feel like your job is related to helping people by providing them with or getting them services to help them maintain their dignity. That's what POPS off the screen and touches me in my feelings and my Spirit about you.

    I have to remember to join the 2018 wig challenge. I have a love/hate relationship with wigs because I have a watermelon head and they don't always fit the way I want them to. I'm thinking of ordering her... I also have a kinky curly lace front from Yvonne (pictured in my avi) that I loooove.... I just don't know how I'd look with a bob and bangs with this big head.

    I love Yvonne hair! I used their wefted kinky curly hair to make a u part that I wore for months. The curls are so pretty! I haven’t tried their wigs though. How do they fit you? My head is a little larger than average so I know how hard it can be to find a good fit. I’ve been ordering from Premier Lace Wigs and OMG Queen because they offer custom wig sizing but are still affordable.

    I have a huge head too and I've rocked a wig similar to that with no problem.

    Yes!!! I love their kinky curly wefted hair as well. I’ve ordered from them many times!! I usually get my wefted hair sewn in though. The kinky curly lace front fits well I just have to lay my hair down right. I’ll have to look into OMG Queen and Premier. I have a few units but I want to buy at least 2 more to get me through the first 6 months of the year.
