So excited to be a new member!
I’m very happy that you may engage more often, then, Misty! I certainly know how life can get in the way, tho (perhaps you’ve already seen the ‘tome’ I just posted!) Once my guy returns home from hospital, I’ll doubtless have less time but still hope to continue making sympathetic new friends and exchanging great tips, as well :) Hmmm. It seems as though we’re in the same boat—yet on opposite ends—as I’m happy w/my HH wigs, while open to wearing synthetics, too! I haven’t yet had any trouble w/my lace, although I was strongly warned to avoid tugging on that area and to instead use the much stronger ear tab area to adjust the piece. Perhaps, too, the actual type of lace is important? I’ve also heard that Swiss, French, invisible or even HD lace all have their place...depending on your particular needs, right? Yikes. It seems there’s so much to learn—yet I’m finding the process rather fun! In the case of my first HH wig, the company I purchased it from has a maintenance programme in case we wish to cut, colour, add hair or even redo the lace altogether. In fact, I’ve seen women sporting the same wig five, six or even many more years later—and they report that it simply becomes more natural looking! However, I don’t expect my newest and already thinnest pieces to last nearly as long as that...but, then again, they were a fraction of the cost of my first (and - during Covid - I managed to snag a couple of beauties at an even better bargain, yet..) Hopefully, you’ll be able to advise me on my first synthetic purchase, tho! Oops. I’d better stop typing—before I write another tome..
