Go For It review by Nancy

Brand new for Fall 2017, this is Go For It by Raquel Welch in two very popular shades - SS23/61 Shaded Cream and SS44/60 Shaded Licorice. First - the wig. In my opinion, this is one of the best short wigs Raquel Welch has released. The cap construction is lace front and mono crown (my favorite) with that amazing Memory 3 open cap. If you haven't tried it, the cap is silicone coated so for those of you with little or no hair, it's going to sit nice and secure on your scalp. The density is perfect. When I first saw the photos, I thought maybe it was an updated version of Cinch. Not so - they are very different! I found Cinch to be a bit on the thin side. Go For It is just right - no unwanted wefts showing through and a very natural feel to the fibers. The pictures are right out of the box and it was very easy to manipulate into different looks. The lace front is just outstanding. Sometimes in rooted colors, you can get that dark, straight line appearance at the forehead which, to me, is a dead wig giveaway. These two Shadow Shades are very natural looking. It is permatease but it's not overly done. It's an easy one to either poof or wears more sleek. On to the colors - Shaded Cream has been reviewed many times but this is my first time owning it. It's a lovely, overall quite platinum look. The rooting is a dark blonde. I was a little hesitant about this shade just because of that but once I saw it on, it's definitely the right choice. Shaded Licorice has the almost black base color with silvery highlights. It's also another new color for me. The tricky thing about greys at my age (I'm 61) is that they can either take ten years off or put ten years on in an instant. Of the two, I lean more to platinum palettes but I have to say, this is a beautifully done color. Styleability is a huge plus for Go For It. You can wear it off the face to either side or push it completely back for a bit of an edge or even wear a more full coverage bang. True to the adage that no two wigs are alike, the Shaded Cream was easier to style than the Shaded Licorice. I'm looking forward to giving them each a soak and adding a little spray gel. With a very nice price point to boot, I'm giving this one two thumbs up!

I’m going to order a Katherine wig. What is the closest color to Almond Rocka? As you may know, I also love the Almond Rocka! If only the 32BF had a brown base instead of an auburn one; then we’d be in business! None of the colors for Katherine have multi-tone highlights like Almond Rocka except 32BF — and it’s definitely a red.

There are many different forms of hair loss and just as many reasons for each one. Alopecia is the catch all name for hair loss and includes a type caused by traction - or a pulling force. You may be under the assumption that traction alopecia only occurs after wearing a super-tight style that causes the hair to be pulled from the roots.

The measurements are taken by the suppliers themselves and these are the specs they provide to us. Nape measurements are generally taken from the hair at the physical nape at the interior back of the wig down to the bottom of the hair.
