Carol, ask your Freedom agent for a recommendation for a stylist with experience - I'm sure she knows of someone as there are a lot of other Freedom clients in England.

It was as light as the rep could go, I assume it *was* extra light. My goal is to look natural as I did not choose to lose my hair (nearly 30 years ago). Being over 50, and only 5'1, a natural look would not involve big hair, that is just me  Perhaps because I wanted wavy - like my own Irish hair - meant a coarser texture for curl? I don't know, but it wasn't a one time thing, I probably had at least 4 Freedom wigs, in fact, I had them before they were called that...! Yes, I know color has to be done.  But it is wear and tear on the hair and makes it MORE porous and vulnerable to further damage and breakage.  Access to "excess(?) sunshine and outdoor activity" is part of what Freedom advertises! Perhaps because I live in sunny Seattle, I needed to color after about a year, I had to purchase after about 3 years. Again, I NEVER slept in them, never swam in them. Understand,  I like them for what they are. They are very good, but you will have more satisfied customers if they can actually AFFORD them and have realistic expectations. I am finding synthetic mainstream wigs to be more comfortable, simpler, and much more affordable.  I think these wigs have gotten much better since I initially lost my hair.  I am finding a lot of community around wearing them too, and hints for wearability.  Good to have choices.

Hi bbonbi,

Selecting an "extra-light" density would definitely reduce the thickness of the hairpiece and would eliminate the thinning you are doing to the hairpiece.  Colour does of course need to be done every once in a while as the hair will oxidize due to lack of oils, excess sunshine and outdoor activity and due to natural aging of the hair.  A simple toner or lowlights solves this problem.   I don't need to colour until around the 18 month mark and I find it a nice change at that point in time.

My freedom wigs were good products, lasted at most 3 years. I never slept in in or swam. But the sun bleaches it out, even in Seattle, and then you have to color it, and in my experience, the hair just gets brassy over time. Also, even with "light" density - the hair is just thick, thick, thick, and I never liked spending money to have to have so much thinning done.

I am really hoping freedom is researching an even thinner silicone to perhaps lighten the weight.  I would pay more money for this kind of innovation/improvement.

Thanks None!  Don't know who you are but you obviously know me!  Appreciate the nice comment!  As for repairs, they cost about 1/4th of the cost of a new one and they are going to be 'gone' for about 3 months!!  Plan for repairs and make sure you have a back-up ready.  You can avoid repairs by making sure that you don't keep pressing down on the top and "dragging" your hands down your head, pulling on the hair.  I agree about the heat - they never itch and if you do happen to get hot, just pop it off, wipe it out, you can even put cold water in it and dump it out!  (I did that once at Disney World - very refreshing!)
