I’m a wig newbie. I guess I’ll need those too
It’s a cute wig! Don’t mind me I’m learning
Now if you really wanna get fancy, get a wig block head, a tripod, and some t-pins to pin the wig down if you wanna straighten it. Otherwise, a styrofoam wig head, a wig cap to keep the wig from slipping around, and your legs to keep it from sliding around will do.
I want to start wearing wigs because I have a lot of hair and tired of doing my hair every day. I can have a nice break wearing wigs but I have so many questions.
Are you ladies keeping your wigs in for weeks at a time? Days? Or you take it off everyday?
I’m not sure if it’s possible but I’d like to keep my wig on for weeks at a time but I’m not sure how I’d keep it secure.
The got2be stuff, is this something I can use to leave my wig on for weeks? Do I use the mousse or the gel?
When u bleach the knots, doesn’t the bleach get on the roots of the wig hair too?
Do full lace wigs with “free parting” allow me to wear the wig in any style I want (such as a bun, half up half down, etc.)?
How would u make the wig undetectable in the back when wearing the wig in a bun?
I take mine off every day
I wear mostly synthetic wigs and I also take them off daily, put on a satin cap over braided hair, then head to bed.
I take mine off every day. You're going to have to sew it down or use actual glue, not the got2be, if you want weeks of wear. Got2be is a really sticky gel, it won't last that long.
I wear synthetic wigs so I've never bleached knots. I do know that they sell pre-bleached wigs though.
I think so, but that depends on the kind of frontal/closure used.
I am in a newbie to the wig life. Trying to grow my hair from BSL to MBL.
I made my own wig. I take of daily. At first I was just putting it and it felt sooo unsecure. I added an elastic band to on Saturday and now that thing is not moving. I made a closure wig.
I do use mousse to lay my wig the closure flat. I put mousse and then use a hot comb.
If you leave the bleach on too long you can bleach the hair. I had that same question too, but if your bleach is not super runny, it won't really go through the other side to hair, if that makes sense.
I believe a full lace wig will allow you to wear any style. Since its full lace, there won't be any tracks.
To make a wig undetectable in the back, you would probably have to glue down in the same manner you would do the front.
I learned how to revive my old tangled and worn-looking synthetic wig! I’m just amazed! Now I feel like I have a superpower. I think I’m gonna go ahead and buy a mannequin head so I can better style and flatiron the wigs after washing them.
I have never been much into wigs or weaves, but I have been wearing a wig I made and I love it. I haven't washed my hair in a month. I am getting hair lazy! I will wash and condition my hair and my wig this weekend. I am also going to start working on making my next wig.
I wanna start practicing bleaching knots on my synthetic lace fronts. Eventually I wanna buy pre-plucked and pre-bleached human hair wigs.
How did you do it?
Wash the wig with shampoo or soap. Boil water and add fabric softener. Turn off stove. Dunk the wig in the boiling water and let it cool off in there. I usually wait 15-30 minutes or so. Rinse, air dry or blow dry then flatiron or curl. Dassit. I learned it here:
I thought I was going to join the world of wig wearing. I found a pixie braid wig which I thought would work but they only had it in black. I really need a brownish color because black just makes it me look crazy.
I forgot to post that I wore this wig for Halloween. It was long and I had to cut it. A lot of tangles I even braided it in a braid.
You better WERK IT, SIS!!
i'm ordering 2 wigs this weekend, hopefully i love this bang wig.
I would love to join your challenge. I purchased a 14 inch Brazilian full lace straight wig. I am taking it to the salon tomorrow to be colored. I’m hoping to have it installed Wednesday. It has a strap and clips. I want to wear it without glue but I’m not sure how that is going to work. I would love to take it off daily or at least once a week so I can maintain my hair underneath. This is my first lace wig and I am very new to the wig world. It’s a lot to learn.
How long do you plan on wigging it?
I plan to wear a wig for at least a year or longer. I am using it as a protective style while I grow my hair out. It is currently neck length but I want my hair to be BSL.
How will you take care of your hair while using the wig/phony pony?
Weekly deep conditioning and hot oil treatments.
Natural, Relaxed, Texlaxed, Transitioning:

Where did you buy your wig. I was all set to get a wig from Hairlivi and then I read the reviews.
This is the wig I'm currently wearing and it's called Super Diana by Vanessa in the color F1010:
Or here but fast forward to 4:35 minutes in:
I really this wig a lot and I get tons of compliments when I wear it.
Oohhh... that’s cute!!
Thanks hon. It really is pretty cute. I get a lot of compliments from both men and women.
I got my hair from dare to have hair. I bought my bundles for my current sew in during the last sale. I love the quality so I purchased a wig. They are having a really good sale right now.
My hair stylist colored my wig today. I can’t wait to have it installed Wednesday.
Here is the before
Here is the after
Thinking about getting back on the bandwagon. Bought this over the summer it was too hot then but the cold weather has me needing some hair.
So is it too bulky?
I'm no wig expert, but I think you're totally ROCKING that!!
I'm currently in a crochet set and after I take this out, I plan to rock some drawstring ponytails. I'll post pix of those when I do. Until then, I think this will be my EOTY length check. I don't plan to flat iron again next month. So here's my year end pic for this challenge.
I stuck to my plan of alternating wigs, mini braids and crochet styles. I made my goal of grazing WL! Yay!
