Its A Wig Half Wig Fame


This unit was purchased from MiMiBeautyLine.com
I order my unit in the color #1. This wig is around 10-14" long, loose natural curl/wave with layers framing the face.
This unit is ver soft and mimics natural and relaxed african american hair.
This is one of those units where the frizzier it gets the better it looks. So it seems to last much longer than most units because it begins to look more and more natural with each day.
I wore this unit RELIGIOUSLY (lol) and I still wear as if I just purchased it. Because I wear it so much, I never feel like storing it in a safe place or taking the best care of it. That pretty much means, It last for a long time for the price of the unit!

PROS: Last for a LONG time, natural looking, nice length, resembles natural hair, easy to blend with relaxed or natural hair, nice style, decent fit, comfortable combs.

CONS: A "tad" bit on the shinier side (simular to Sensationnel wigs), tangles, mattes, sheds, frizzes up quickly, can start looking boxy after a while.

Rating: 8.5

Will I purchase again: Yes, I would most definitely!

RPGShow ELS-131-S Glueless Full Lace Wig

This wig was sent to me for review at RPGShow.com.
I received my unit in the color # 1b, in silky straight (non yaki), light brown lace, glueless cap, human remy, cap size 1.
I wore this unit continuosly and the hair is still in excellent condition as of November 8, 2011! I am sure this unit will last quite a long time simply due to the fact the the construction is very good and the quality of the hair is human remy.

PROS: Can be parted any and everywhere, Can be worn without adhering it down, very soft, easy to style, decent density, minimal tangling, soft lace.

CONS: Caps size fit a little too big, color too light (1b resembled a 4), lots of flyaways, frizzes, hair mattes together unless brushed, smelled like chemicals, sheds, becomes stringy looking, ends start looking ratty after heat was applied.
