Default Fierce Afro Wigs

So after seeing different celebrities (Solange comes to mind) and even people in public with fierce afro wigs, I'm wondering where are they getting these wigs from?

I always see the jacked up wigs at the BSS store that are no where close to our curl patterns or textures. I came across the following links and I'm pretty sure there are more out there. I may have to start saving up some money for the days I am too lazy to do anything to my hair.

Modu Invisi Lace Wig IL-115

Glue-less full lace wigs

Glue-less full lace wigs

Tiara: Afro Curly Lace Wig: Available as Full Lace Wigs or Lace Front Wigs

On a side note, the mannequins look too dang realistic..lol.

The one I liked was $315 and idk if I could really pay that much for a wig when hoping in the shower and throwing some gel into my hair gives me the same look. Maybe if I had a twa.

Those look really nice! But the price....ummmm....not for me. Not for some hair.

I got a really nice half wig from my local BSS and everyone thinks it is my hair. But I know the first time I went and tried on full wigs, they looked HELLA jacked up on me...they were TERRIBLE.

Oh and +1 on the mannequins...they almost look real for a second

The price got me too. I'm thinking what kind of hair and material are they using...lol. $300 for a wig is out of my price range. However it does look really nice.

I tried to make my own wig one time and it was a diaster. I'll stick to the premade wigs. The Drew wig by Beshe was reasonably priced and looked nice after framing it for my face as well as taking some of the bulk out.

I got the beshe wig and I HATE IT

it is just too big for my little head. Too much bulk...I like big hair...but that was HUGE. Also, I didn't like the curl pattern in the front...it was just too darn defined...looked like a jheri curl. I still have it. Never worn it, still in packaging....need to gift it to someone....anyone?

When I first got it, I put it back in the bag and threw it under my sink. I pulled it back out last weekend and went to work on it. You really have to cut A LOT of the bulkiness out of it. I cut some of the tracks out too. I washed it again, let it airdry, combed the front curls and wore it to work. Got a few compliments.

I love big hair too, but sometimes it can be too big.

I hope you're able to sell it or find someone to give it too

^^^ wow u were able to do a twist out on the creta girl? I always thought that you couldn't style the synthetic wigs with braid outs/ twists, etc.

I like wigs (sometimes) and to prevent the jerri curl look I brush out the curls so much that they frizz. People always mistake it for my real hair. The synthetic wigs are cheap and I don't wear mine often so they last a while. I also like to buy the more expensive hair (you can wash, color, etc) and make some kind of wig with it. I haven't done that in a long time.

Also, I like to buy the kinky curly kid ponytails and rake out the curls. Everyone mistakes it for my hair since its a realistic length and texture. The kid ponytails are also cheaper.

I wish I bought this one instead of the Drew. The Drew is big and I had to cut it down A LOT. How does this one fit?

This is a related question. Hope you don't mind the guano: Do any of you know where I can buy a mannequin head (not a wig) featuring authentic African hair? I've searched high and low and the best I was able to find was "Naomi", who obviously used to have straight hair, which was permed and teased but once you wet it ... ugh!. Flat Any tips you might have would be great

My mom has convinced herself she hates her hair but she did agree to let me try some styles on her: shingling, twist outs, braid outs, BKOs, etc. She will not wear a WNG. She hot combs her hair rather than using a relaxer at this point so hopefully most of her natural curl pattern is still intact and not too damaged. I'd like to practice some techniques on a mannequin before I see her again so I don't crash and burn. Everyone else in my life either lives too far away or won't let me practice on them because they want their hair kept straight ... We're both researching the most helpful product regimen for her so I'm crossing my fingers
