    I just got this in the mail!!! I’m finally saying goodbye to Hania. Dream is about to become my new boo.

    Has anybody tried to do anything with the wig to decrease the volume? When I put rollers in Hania and dipped in hot water, the volume used to decrease a bit. I’m debating whether to do the same with Dream.

    389E03D0-18CE-4BE8-804D-AD37140A5A6F.jpeg My new Sunday wig. I dyed it natural black and cut bangs.... I think it’s 22 inches. I won’t be wearing this everyday... too hot.

    That song in the video of Dream was nice. I went and found it immediately :look:

    When I get the money I'm getting a wig. I want a shoulder length one in a Dominican blow out sort of texture with a hair line that stretches from ear to ear. Something synthetic thats under 40 dollars. Any recs? Oh and it has to be middle part.

    When you say ear to ear hairline, you mean you want it to have a frontal where you can pull the hair back and still have the hairline look realistic?

    Not neccesarily. I don't require a 360 degree frontal for ponytails/buns, just lace from ear to ear so that when the wind blows it doesn't look odd. Thats my main concern, lol.

    Oh, okay. I'm not really into middle parts like that so the only one I can think of off the top of my head is Bobbi Boss Yara, but it is a blunt cut. I don't know if that is what you are looking for. I know that The Stylist makes some 4x4 wigs in the $40 range that can be parted in the middle but none of them are shoulder length from what I remember.

    Any recommendations for an affordable curly/kinky (4a, 4b, 4c) shoulder length or longer wig? Lace preferred. Synthetic fine. Affordable (None of the IG ones.)

    TIA!

    OK, I'm out of m crochets. I just put my hair in 4 braided quadrants and washed and DC'd in them. I'm going to rebraid them and then keep it like that under my wig.

    I'm also trying out a new wig regi. I'm going to wear my wig like a weave where I don't take it off at all. I plan to take it off once a week or biweekly to cleanse and DC my hair. I'm sure it'll reduce the wearability of my wigs but I have so many of them that I'm OK with that. Right now, I can't rock a style that requires me to have to put on hair each day. I really need to KISS.

    So this is my trusty girl who helped me grow out my natural hair to WL. Morning Glory by Glance/Model Model. I can't seem to find her anywhere in order to replace her. :(
    Does anyone know of a short wig with similar texture? I keep seeing ones with big curls but I think the small 4A curls look more natural.

    Got this wig. It's so odd.bits much more poofy that it looks in the video. Also the texture is really sticky and rough. I guess they did that to make the synthetic not be shiny but it feels so strange. Super long on me too. I was going to return it but it's past the 7 day return limit. I guess I'm just gonna have to try and fix this thing up.

    Outre has a wig called 4a Kinky in its Big Beautiful Hair line with a similar texture. It comes in both lace front and half wig versions.

    What do you do with your hair underneath your wig? Do you ever have problems laying it flat because it is so long?

    I typically cornrow it all going straight back and plait the tails together when I’m finished and pin that braided tail up flat into the cornrows. Then I plop my satin skull cap over that to help lay it down. I never took the cap off, except to tend to my hair so it got flatter as the days went by.

    Curlier styles are more forgiving so I gravitated toward those styles as my hair grew longer.

    So I’m a little over a week into sleeping in my wig. The first few days were so hard. But now, we’re doing alright. I just scarf it up at night. Wake up in the morning, fluff it out and my hair is done for the day. It’s making life so much easier! I was supposed to relax in a few weeks but I think I’m going to keep stretching by rocking my wig 24/7.

    Garbage. So I tried hard to finesse this wig and it didn't work. I took 6 weave tracks out to reduce the density and still it was so big. Then it has curls that go in every which direction so it looks crazy if you ain't keeping an eye on it,which is hard to do in the back that you cannot see. Then I tried to put it in a side part like the video but that doesn't work because the layers and curls are designed to be worn in a middle part. So putting to the side had curls flipping forward to my nose. Sigh. So I put it back to a middle part. Then I tried to shape the curls so it won't be so unruly. I pinched and heated them up but they still went left,right,up,down. The hair that's attached to the 13x4 lace part is also very dense and too time consuming to pluck but it's density causes the hair to lay damn near 1 inch off your head. I INSISTED on wearing it and not letting my money go to waste but it was a mistake. I looked a damn plum fool. That hair was so wild and untamed that it wore me, I didn't wear it. It looked a hot wiggly mess! I wish I could have snatched it off but my hair underneath was in two pigtail braids and unpresentable. I just stayed in one spot the whole time to avoid people I know. Now she's sitting on top of my dog's kennel and I'm tryna figure out what to do with it. I'm thinking of maybe flat ironing it straight? But then it'll be too long, curly it's already to my waist. Then I'm wondering how the density will be when straight.
    I'm convinced companies send youtubers better quality wigs to review and send customers crap. This happened to me before with a wig from I think Freetress called sherise. She looked bomb on all youtubers and when I got it it felt like new york city virgin train station rat hair. I returned that with the quickness.

    @Royalq I'm sorry that happened to you. You must be so frustrated.

    I'm experiencing some disappointment with a YouTube favorite myself. Bobbi Boss Copper. The curl at the end fell out and the lace never laid flat, not even with glue.

    Finally here to post pics of Vella Vella Alexis. I had to take about 4 tracks out to make it smaller. Still a bit big in the back but I use Bobby pins. Been wearing her a few weeks now and considering another color:

    I loved this wig and wore my first one to death. But the second one i bought to replace it was not the same quality.
