Christine's Review: Radiant Beauty by Gabor, Color: Shaded Butter Toast (GL15/26SS)

My name is Christine. I have been struggling with wigs and styles. Longing for my natural hair back was heartbreaking for me. I previously reviewed the Sarah wig (which I now love love love by the way) but I did also purchase the Radiant Beauty in Shaded Butter Toast at the beginning of 2017. After seeing Heather's review on that wig I wanted to see if I could pull off a shorter style for summer. At the time of my Radiant Beauty purchase, the Sarah wig had not come out yet and I was having a love/hate relationship with the Alexandra wig tangling and clumping when not brushed often. Now, to be fair, I am not the most gentle on my wigs I must confess. But I am learning. I have seen Heather rocking some really cute mid-length to short wigs and I thought wow... I bet I would look good in some of these too for the hot summer. I think Heather and I share the same face shape so how could I go wrong? So, my Radiant Beauty was delivered. I was so excited because I loved the curl pattern and style. Pulled it out of the box... wow.... very tight ringlets! But, wigs always need some kind of work when they come straight out of the box. So, I plopped it on my head. Looked in the mirror.... oh no no-no. It did not look good on me. I was so frustrated because I wanted it to look good on me the same as it did on Heather. But no such luck. No matter what I did, it just looked bad on me. So, I gave up and put it back in the box. Lesson learned, just because it looks good on one person doesn't mean it's going to look good on everyone. Fast forward to 9 months later, I was searching wig reviews still searching for that perfect mid-length to short wig I thought would look good on me. I came across a YouTuber doing wig comparisons of different shades of blond curly wigs and a few of those wigs were Radiant Beauty. These wigs looked great on her. That day I was meeting my whole family for lunch. So, I thought I would give her another chance. I went and pulled her out of the box, shook her out trying to relax those curls. Then I squirted water and Downy wrinkle release on her combed her out and put her on a stand to dry. This method did relax the curl somewhat. I made sure before I put her on I showered, put on my makeup and was dressed for lunch. With my fingers crossed, I put her on again after 9 months. She looked in the mirror and this time she didn't look so bad. With the curls relaxed some, she did look better on me. After some time playing around with her, unfortunately, I came to the conclusion that I would not be able to wear her down.... but maybe she would look cute in an updo with a turtleneck sweater on. So again with my fingers crossed, I played with her styling her in an updo. The results were beautiful! This wig is gorgeous in an updo! I was so happy. I didn't waste my money purchasing her. The color Shaded Buttered Toast is gorgeous for fall. I am so glad I did not give up on her! Love the relaxed curls that fall softly around the face. Perfect... As women losing hair, it's an everyday struggle to find it within yourself to feel good. Those who don't understand say "Oh... it's just hair". But if having beautiful hair makes you feel good, do it. Do what makes you feel good about yourself. I love CysterWigs and our little wig community. I feel less alone when I read tweets and blogs. It makes me feel good to know I am not alone and that someone is going through the same thing and understands. I am so happy I found wigs here at CysterWigs. Heather and her staff are God sent. Bless you, all. Here are some photos of my Radiant Beauty in my updo. Love the hairline and lace front. "Don't give up"

But excessive loss of hair can be an embarrassing and stressful problem which is extremely common among females. Did you know that one in three women is likely to experience hair loss at some point in their lifetime?
