I have had AA for 45 years. (I was ten when I got it, I'm 55 now.) For most of my life, I wore synthetic until college, and then I could find human hair that wasn't full lace. For about twenty years,…Continue

Those of you who wear full lace wigs, what is your routine?

Started Apr 16, 2016 0 Replies

I have had my first full lace wig for about two weeks now, and I'm getting used to it. I've worn lace front wigs for a number of years, and have had good and long lasting adhesion with lace front…Continue

"That is a difficult question! Belle Tress has at least one, maybe more, all hand-tied synthetics (I'm thinking of Tea Leaf, which I've never seen in person, but the descriptions say it's all hand-tied).  It's a…"

"Hi Dollhead, I understand how you feel. You are still young enough to want to wear a beautiful stylish wig without it breaking the bank. Of course, you know that human hair wigs are the best. It's an "investment" especially if you…"

Jazla Wigs replied to Dollhead's discussion What's Your Preference Based On Cost? Synthetic Or Human?
"Hi Dollhead, I think the biggest challenge in terms of longevity is wearing the wig 24/7, regardless of the type of wig.  24/7 wear is very tough on wigs and will require them to be replaced much more frequently.  Synthetics in particular…"

"Thanks for the suggestion, but at that price, I might as well go ahead and stay with human hair full lace wigs. I'm not crazy about the look, either - I'm 55, not 75! :D"

"The best synthetic wig I have found is the UpStage by Rachael Welch, It is all hand tied and mono top. It comes in a number of colors and the length is so nice for someone your age and mine. It is as light as a feather. Looks amazing on.  I am…"

What's Your Preference Based On Cost? Synthetic Or Human?

I have had AA for 45 years. (I was ten when I got it, I'm 55 now.) For most of my life, I wore synthetic until college, and then I could find human hair that wasn't full lace. For about twenty years, I was able to have a great human hair system, but that became cost prohibitive two years ago, and I had to switch back to wigs. I like full lace wigs now - I find them less bulky, I don't have to worry about tracks showing, etc., but synthetics are way less expensive. I sleep in my wigs as well.…See More

Brian replied to Dollhead's discussion How Do You Do It (Wear Different Wigs All The Time)?
"I am self-employed and work from home, but I switch my wigs as I feel like it.  I have a fairly large collection of wigs, so I wear different wigs depending on what I am doing that day, or how I feel on a particular day.  The key is to be…"

Coleen replied to Dollhead's discussion How Do You Do It (Wear Different Wigs All The Time)?
"I switch mine all the time.  There will be weeks at work where I will wear five very different wigs.  I chose this route to avoid the stress of worrying about mishaps and wondering how to tell people.  It makes others more comfortable…"

How Do You Do It (Wear Different Wigs All The Time)?

As I've mentioned before, I'm not new to wigs and alopecia. I've been wearing wigs since I was ten, and I'll be 55 this year. A long, LONG time with my constant companion. I've been trying to update my look, and I've been watching YouTube videos, and I see these YouTube gurus who keep switching wigs like they're changing shoes. I gues because it's because they have some hair, but I have seen two women who are alopecians and one who lost her hair in a childhood accident.Are there any of you out…See More

Dollhead replied to Katie's discussion Called out on my Wig
"Oh, Honey!!!! That must have been horrible! I 'm torn on what to say here. I have had AA and have worn wigs since I was 10 (I'm 55 now) so I hid it the whole time I was in school - or so I thought in some instances. My first gym class…"

"Sweetie, you've been this woman's handmaiden for close to 40 years or more, and even the handmaidens get to eat from the table, and not on the floor with the dogs. Sit at the table, and if there's not a seat for you at the table, go…"

Dollhead replied to Dollhead's discussion How to get the smell out of a full lace wig from China
"The wig actually smelled like cigarette smoke/corn chips, which was probably from the person who ventilated the wig in the first place. I contacted the seller about it, and subsequent units have been fine. You keep trying to hawk your wares here and…"
