• how often do you wash your wig??
    I'm even in more of the minority. I hardly ever wash my wigs. If I wash them every three months--that's a lot! But--I also have quite a large selection and I rotate my wigs.
    One thing I did learn, though, was to NOT soak wigs in fabric conditioner for longer than five minutes. I washed one of my Estetica Wren wigs and forgot that it was soaking in fabric conditioner . I was cooking, baking, procrastinating and a couple of hours later I realized my wig was in the upstairs bathroom sink. It dried horribly. The cap became stretched out and it was a mess. So I decided to re-wash it without any conditioner and it was just so awful I had to throw it out. It pained me but I learned a valuable lesson!
  • Sharing the love❤️
    That's a great idea. The FB groups are wonderful sources of support as is this forum. I think you are onto something to bring it outside social media and into an actual group! Best of luck to you. It's a great idea!!!
  • How would you respond?
    They're your girlfriends! Why would you not want to be transparent with them? Part of friendship is trust and I would trust my girls enough to be honest with them. I would have just said--I'll lend you my wig to take to the stylist!
  • Help us improve :)
    Show how the wigs look on OLDER models. I'm tired of perusing through various wig sites only to have wigs that are obviously geared toward the "mature" demographic modeled on women who are only familiar with wrinkles on clothing!
    While I'm at it......... it might be a game changer if you would group styles according to face shape. Or have a section geared toward the woman who is starting her journey with wigs.
    But yeah, I think what bothers me most is that the the largest grouping of women wearing wigs fall into the mature age group yet its young models all over the place..LOL!!
  • What would you do???
    I would be fine with it as long as I had editing rights--LOL. If it was a creepy guy I would tell him to get away--with rather saucy words!
  • The Graytful Head! A Look at My Favorite Wig--Jamison in ChromeRT1B!
    You know what? You're correct about the blonde color! I happen to be a blonding fan but the hubs is not--but then again, I don't care. I've been veering toward lighter shades as I've been pro-aging!! And although my original hair color is black--it just looks harsh now!!!
  • The Graytful Head! A Look at My Favorite Wig--Jamison in ChromeRT1B!
    Chrome RT1B is a rooted color--giving it more depth!
  • Nancy ---- wig???????
    I'm not too sure about my Nancy. Depending on how clean your hair is and when it was styled has a lot to do with the appearance of thicker or thinner hair. My guess is that's her own hair. She has great genetics! OTOH, 95 percent of news anchors are wearing faker hair. Along with their botoxed and filled in faces, fake boobs, not-too-casual outfits. Fake teef. And...they all have the same hair. The loose barrel curls. The difference between American news and European news is astounding. The Europeans are less concerned with appearance and more concerned with serious journalism!!

    Vee what's the group. You can copy the video and post. I'm all about that. I hope your friend doesn't think gray makes her feel older!!
  • The Graytful Head! A Look at My Favorite Wig--Jamison in ChromeRT1B!
    It's a new shade. If you google Jamison in new colors I think youll find it!!
  • Support groups?
    You think you can't help people, but your post DID help. You have no idea how many of us who have gone through hair loss have felt the same way. I remember when I had that "aha" moment that my hair would never come back. It was disheartening and depressing but I had to turn it around for the sake of my sanity and my life.
    On FB there are many "wig " groups where women DO discuss their hair loss. You won't be alone. Wigs serve a purpose far more than fun and variety. Wigs give women their confidence and lives back. Here's a huge cyberhug for you!!!

    LOL Penny--of course it's ok! I love the LI Accent!!!!! XOXOXOX
  • The Graytful Head! A Look at My Favorite Wig--Jamison in ChromeRT1B!
    Thank you! LOL--My husband cannot stand me in the gray but he knows I'm going to do what I want anyway.
    You bring up a good point. I don't think it's that we don't want to look OLDER, personally, I just want to look my age--only the best version of my age and that's where the issue lies.
    I also blame the beauty industry big time because they are always using the vulgar term "Anti-aging" as if aging is a bad thing--fact is, the moment you leave the womb you age. It should be called "pro-aging" and then maybe the tide will change!!!
  • The Graytful Head! A Look at My Favorite Wig--Jamison in ChromeRT1B!
    LOL. I have noticed that the younger crowd is enthralled with the gray hair! I'm still trying to wrap my head around that one!!!
  • The Graytful Head! A Look at My Favorite Wig--Jamison in ChromeRT1B!
    I'm with you on wishing that wig manufacturers would offer more in the grays. It's funny because I never thought I would embrace the gray but after wearing that one Jamison, I've ordered another gray wig. Long and gray look lovely on the mature women and I think wig manufacturers need to be aware that women who are of the mature demographic no longer want those "granny" looking wigs. We want stylish and modern and longer wigs in more grays!!!
  • A Few Looks at Henry Margu's Kendall
    Try washing her and spray a wig conditioning spray on the dry areas. And listen--I picked up an inexpensive steamer at Walmart--I paid less than twenty dollars and it does a great job!
    Kendall is such a great wig--please try to rescue her before you throw her away!!!!
  • Question for those who have worn both toppers and wigs
    I've worn both and now stick to wigs exclusevily. The thing for me, with toppers is that they never stayed "right" on my head. The clips were annoying. I was so self-conscience that it wasn't worth the aggravation. I've since kept my toppers to wear at home and the beach for messy buns.
    With wigs, it's a no-brainer. I'm not worried about the placement or shifting and they are more comfortable and more natural looking for me. No stress hair!
  • Problem with lace front / indefinable knots
    As you stated, the wig was used so there's definitely some wear. The underside of the lace looks discolored as though the original owner may have tried to bleach the knots.
    But--as far as those little pieces of "lint"--many wigs have that. You can apply flesh-colored powder to match your scalp or concealer on the underside.
    Personally, those knots don't bother me because if someone other than me can notice them, then they are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to close to my personal space!
  • My Favorite Bridge Wigs of 2018
    Thanks Vee. The budget video is up but I won't post it here due to I guess a conflict with brands that doesn't sell! Thank you so much!
  • A Few Looks at Henry Margu's Kendall
    Hi Linda. The color is 626 H. It's a gorgeous blend and works well for those with a cool skin tone! I'm loving this wig so much!
  • What do you do with your old wigs or wigs you forgot to return on time or...etc?
    I'm currently trying to donate wigs I don't wear to women who need them. i.e. Cancer donations. Trying to work with a local hospital.

    It's worth a try. It was Carrie by UniWigs Lavivid Collection!
  • What Are You Cooking for the Holidays?
    Added a reply but was shut down because it wasn't a vendor that was not sold by
  • What Are You Cooking for the Holidays?
    Thanks Debbie! I cooked sans wig but the wig I wore ( can’t mention the brand here) turned out to be a great choice because it was lightweight and with all the guests and all the food, it became quite hot!!!
  • What Are You Cooking for the Holidays?
    I hope you had a Happy Hanukkah despite being sick! Lol—the Jewish half of my family orders Chinese in a Christmas if they aren’t visiting!!!!
  • natural or wiggy?
    My bio hair is incredibly coarse, dry and the wave pattern is crazy--loose waves in some spots and super curly in others. And it frizzes like nobody's business. When I had ALL my hair I was able to control it and in the winter months, it looked great.

    Now that I have lost most of my hair, I need to wear wigs. I tend to go with wigs that will mimic my own hair--many of the affordabe wigs I have are of a Yaki to light Yaki texture. The good wigs all have a lacklusture texture and by that I mean they aren't shiny!

    And for the wigs that are a bit different than my bio hair, I stick with either straight bobs, longer bobs or chin-length or shoulder length wavy beachy bobs!
  • Details of wigs shopping:blush:
    And no. You do not overwash a wig.
  • Details of wigs shopping:blush:
    Um. I wear a variety of colors. I wear a variety of wigs. I follow my own rules.
    Everyone who knows me knows I wear wigs. And..... I wear them quite well!
    It’s all about self-confidence and not rules
  • Trying on shirts, sweaters and tops with a wig on
    The fit of clothing is extremely important to me. When I shop, I wear a wig. If I’m trying on pullovers and sweaters, I’m very careful with putting the clothes on and off. As far as cleanliness of the fitting room goes—after riding the NYC subway system for most of my life, swimming in public places, and using public restrooms, I’m not that concerned about placing my wig in a hook or dressing room chair should it fall off or shift.
    You can always buy online, try the clothes at home and return if you don’t like.
