I popped into the weave board and was reading and it made me think...thank GOD I wear wigs cause to ME it is so much easier.
 
Once the tracks are sewn in that is just the beginning.
 
Last night I used my curling iron and curled my RPG show wig then a tip I learned from you tube it to let the curls COOL totally, so I curled the hair while on my head. 
 
I curled the front and sides.
then it put it on a wig head
used my "T" wig pins to secure and curled the  back.
Then I let the wig sit and cool for say 1/2 hour (which is more than long enough)
I washed off my makeup etc. after a hard day at work.
Then I used my flexi-rods and put various size flexi rods in the hair.
The flexi rods remained in the wig overnight
This morning I took out the rods and my hair came out GREAT.
 
A few months ago, I did the flexi rods overnight without curling first and I found that they DROPPED so fast.  Then I learned the tip above from You tube and it really works.

Well today I had to perm my edges.  Here is why...
 
I last permed m edges in early March.  I had been applying my edge control etc. and last week I was at work and looked in the mirror and my edges look a mess.  My edges looked good when I left the house but by noon I was looking like don king.
 
Perm:  I use non expensive perms from the store.  I am only perming the first 2 inches of the hair so why invest in expensive perm.
 
Amount of my hair permed - 1  1/2 to 2 inches straight across the front from ear to ear
 
Purpose: I am a 4C type hair and I do not wear my wigs with none of my hair  out.  I always leave out some hair and depending on the wig - I might leave out 1/2 inch to 2 full inches when wearing my head bands.
 
Appearance - When my edges are permed it just makes the wig blend better and not shout...WIG ALERT....
 
How often to perm - for ME, I notice I can go 3 -4 months.
 
hope this helps!!!

i stick to full wigs MissSunshine.  i'm a fine 4c, and i did the perm.  Unfortunately, even after perming, my hair did not match any hair textures.  It was still coily/kinky, thus for straight styles, i had to not only perm, but also use heat.Confused

Moisturizing your natural hair
 
I recently found out about the LOC METHOD and wow what a difference it has made on my hair.  My hair is so moisturized.  I see am difference and I hope for long term success.
 
LOC means Liquid, OIL and then adding a crème.  Here is a link to several videos from you tube that was so helpful for me.

Tips on wearing wigs for the first time.  This video is from a white lady in London.  It is long but she has very good points for NEW WIG WEARS.  I want you to focus on the message and be willing to understand that her tips are good and sent with experience.  I wish I had seen a video like this when I first started with half wigs.  GOD is so GOOD, you tube is such a blessing and the younger sister dont realize that not that long ago, in the early 2000's their was NO YOU TUBE to watch and learn.

 
I have learned so much while before it was if a "friend" wanted to help you and tell you "their" trick otherwise...most of the time...most women would not "help".

I just got a brainy idea.   I am going to post links of you tube sisters who have helped me greatly with tips, techniques, comments, ways to style, brand of wigs to try etc.  This is in no particular order because GOD has blessed me with finding all of them.
 
This video is showing a tip to gel your edges before applying wig.  I have not done it this way before but I see the potential and I see it is a good idea.  Remember, don't stop at just this one video this sister has a lot of good videos and tips.

Here is a video about creating baby hair on lace wigs. 
 
 
what I love about DEZI is ....she explains so clearly.  She tells you the products.  She has great videos.  Here earlier videos from say 2-3 years back is a lot of half wigs.

I decided to compile a short list of the wigs that are normally darker in color than you expect.  Now I can only talk about the black shades such as 1 and 1B.  I do not wear the blonds etc.
 
SO this list is wig companies that historically if you order a 1B it looks like a 1
So if you want a 1B with any of these companies you need to order a 2.
 
These TIPS are from my personal experience ordering wigs.  These are wig I ordered and when I received it the 1B was super dark so NOW....KNOW with the brand go up to the 2 if I want a 1B shade.
 
Companies - WIGS THAT ARE SUPER DARK - these are the companies to order a lighter shade
 
Freetress SYN WIGS are SUPER DARK, a 1b in Freetress is like a jet black 1
IF you want a 1b with Freetress THEN YOU ORDER A  2 
 
Outre SYN WIGS - same as above
Hug
 
COMPANIES - Wigs that are exactly the shade of 1B
VANESSA SYN WIGS
 
Star
 
COMPANIES - WIGS ARE NOT SUPER DARK - 1B IS A LITTLE ON THE LIGHTER SIDE FOR A 1B 
NOW UNDERSTAND, not overly brown - the wigs look like 1B but a lighter 1B
