Pretty waves, bad lace front
I love the texture and color of Maya in Toasted Sesame, but the lace front leaves a lot to be desired. This is my first wig after my hair thinning progressed enough that my extensions no longer blended well. I am pretty self-conscious when I wear the wig out, because I don't think it's totally believable. I can't invest in another wig at the moment, so I'm trying to make it work for the next few months.
The silicone line where the lace meets the mono top is very obvious, but I camouflaged it with some brown eyeshadow. The lace itself is stiff, a little itchy, and overly shiny. The color of the lace is fine, and it blends in well enough with my light/fair skin. I use Bedhead styling glue to keep it in place, because I still have a lot of bio hair and a rather low hairline. Maya is pretty dense at the hairline, and could probably use some thinning. I skirt that issue by wearing her half up or pin back the front. If I don't, it looks very wiggy.
Toasted sesame is a great color, but it is a little more blonde than I expected. The fiber is a little too shiny, but looked better after the first wash. I've also used some dry shampoo to tone it down. I love the texture, it's a more defined wave than most other wavy wigs CW offers, so it's closer to my natural texture. However, I would not order again.Loading...
