    I got my wig installed today. I love it. However, the got2be gel (black tube) was on some of my hair and hard to get off. Anyone using the got2be gel? If you are, how do you remove the gel from your edges? Also, my edges are really damaged. I almost cried today when I saw just how bad my edges have broken off. I think it’s from my box braids. However, I’m not 100% sure. I took my wig off and applied wild hair growth oil when I got home. I don’t want the gel to damage my edges more. I am going to wear it tomorrow without the gel.

    Any recommendations for growing back your edges?

    Edit: I just reread the initial post and will try using another method besides got2be gel.

    Oh no! So sorry to hear about your edges.

    I will say that sometimes when I first come out of braid/twist extensions it looks like my edges have thinned. But after a few weeks of a more relaxed hairstyle (with less stress on my edges) they begin to look like normal again. I hope that's really the case.

    If not, I don't think you can go wrong with castor oil massages and keeping styles with less stress on your edges. My edges are naturally fine/thinner so I started doing a perimeter braid when I wear wigs instead of just braiding straight back. I believe that helped to put less stress on them. I've never used the glue but I've seen lots of ladies on YT talk about the glue messing with their edges. :(

    Thank you!! I appreciate your advice. I will do castor oil massages nightly. I also have a wig cap that has satin lined in the inside. My current braiding pattern has a perimeter braid with my edges left out. Hopefully my hair and edges will grow from wearing wigs and all of the oil treatments.

    I ordered from dare to have hair. I ordered a 20 inch Peruvian body wave (light brown) with HD lace. I can’t wait to receive it! This is my last wig for a while. :drunk: It was $285 so I had to buy it.. I’m done shopping.

    The wig grip definitely works. I tried to slide my wig back and it was a lot harder to pull back. I oiled my scalp this morning, put on my satin lined wig cap (purchased from Ebonnets), then my wig grip over the wig cap. I love it. My lace is also laying flat without glue/gel.

    Im getting better at customising human wigs now which is good.

    Its true that wigs can smell fear. I approach it with confidence now and Im semi laid :lol:

    Just bought a yaki straight wig with bangs which I've been wanting for ages. Hope it looks good in person.

    Just got my first wig from my local wig store. It's a full wig not a lace front. Sales clerk said I would have to glue down a lace front. It's a curly wig and I am not used to it yet. I think I'm going back for a soft wave wig for every day.

    Totally understand! GL finding the wig style that works for you.

    Good thing is that wigs have improved in quality and textures so there's likely to be a style that feels more comfortable for you. When I first started, I preferred wigs with bangs or half wigs that I rocked with headbands

    Hey everyone, how do you feel about just continuing this thread for 2020 instead of starting a new one since it's only 7 pages long?
