    Hi everyone! I was just putting together a list of wigs I have tried or want to try that will blend with my now natural hair and thought i'd share my findings with all of you and if there is anyone else that has contributions they can feel free to add on!

    Sites i've ordered from:

    hairsisters.com
    clairhair.com
    blackhairspray.com
    samsbeauty.com
    golden mart beauty supply
    ebay.com

    And whenever i'm looking at a HORRID stock photo, I go to youtube first for a review if possible. Hair sisters has gotten really good about posting photos of the actual piece and customers post their photos wearing wigs too.

    I will also consult this thread on BHM: http://forum2.blackhairmedia.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=148056&PN=1&title=post-your-wig-photos-here

    and their wig sections in general.

    ^^Wow, they could have blended Malibu twist a little better with the model's real hair... or at least tried to!

    I did a braid out on some mink kinky straight hair from hisandher.com today. Granted I am texlaxed not natural but this hair would work with the naturals. They also have a regular kinky straight that has a little more texture to it that may blend even better for naturals. I left the pictures large so people could hopefully see the blending a little better. I am planning to do a black cellophane next time I wash to blend a little better.

    They wrong for the blending of this. Just...wrong.


    I'm more into weaving, esp those that are blendable without heat.

    mainly kinky curly, i want it to be as natural looking as possible, and natural meaning looking like hair that's not chemically altered.

    I recommend pro-ten weave hair, Bohemian curl

    http://www.hairwigharlem.com/weaves/pro10-weave/outre-pro-10-bohemian-wave.html

    If you don't feel like paying out for high end human hair or don't like the idea of it then pro-ten, Bohemian curl is a good solution. I made a wig out of it last November and it's still going strong. I like Bohemian curl, but I'd be happy to see pro-ten in tighter patterns like creole curly or natural. My wig looks kinda like the Model Model Frida pic above.

    I used to wear a kinky weave that everyone thought was my real hair! My stretched 4b/4c hair blended pretty well with it. I have to double check on the type of hair i used because i don't remember off the top of my head. But i know i used 2 different brands and slightly different textures.

    ETA: So, i finally found the hair i used. It is by Femi Collection. Kanekalon hair. Style: SYN, AFRO FRIZZY WVG 16"

    I also used Outre Batik. Style: BATIK JERRY CURL WVG 16" 100% Kanekalon.
