My experiences with Motown Tress LG-22 Wig.  This is the wig in the video above.
 
First off, it is shiny as hellz.  you will need to do the deodorant trick
Two - It does not last over 2 weeks, and I took it off as soon as I got home.
Three - YES, I would be it again, because to me the curl pattern is nice but just KNOW FROM THE  START..... this is a wig that you must take care of, don't sleep in, take off when you get home and EXPECT it to be trash in 2 weeks.
 
PRICE - The price is under 25.00 so for the cost, even if it last 2 weeks it is still a good buy to ME!!
Because it does not LAST, I would not pay over 25.00 for this WIG. 
 
 
It is a discontinued wig and no longer made but it is still for sale at a few online places.  here are the links below.
 
 
all shades available on this site.
 
 
only 1B mix combination left
 
over priced site -

Have you ever seen a wig color on a site and wondered, what color is 1b/118?  Well here is a link to a wig color chart.  Now this is a estimate and "guide" of what the color might look like.  This color chart is not for every brand.  But it gives you an idea what to expect.

The brand you buy, for example...Freetress....might be a little brighter or darker but this is just a guide.

How to truly KNOW if a wig is shiny....
 
Many times we see reviews on You Tube and people say.... Oh, this wig is not shiny.
 
THEN WHEN I PURCHASE THE WIG, it is shiny like a grease ball.
 
The best way to check if a wig is shiny and to know....should I apply any product to the wig to dull the shine.  The best tip is to take the WIG outside.
 
GO to your window, deck whatever.  If you say, I can't a it carry a wig outside.  Get one of your tote bags, put the wig in the bag and THEN carry it outside.  THEN discretely pull out just some of the hair and you should be able to see if it look shiny.
 
 
hope this helps
 
For new posters ....to remove the shine, rub stick deodorant on hair, (speedstick) lay hair on bed on a towel, rub deodorant down on shaft of hair, then place hand on hair and rub up and down.  DO NOT LIFT hand of hair, do not pull out curls.  KEEP HAND FLAT on top of hair. 
 
THen move to another section, rub up and down until you do the entire wig.
 
This TIP IS FOR SYN WIGS ONLY THAT YOU PLAN TO WEAR AND TRASH.

I'm sort of annoyed today with my wig.  Why can't these companies make a WIG that is perfect right out the package. 
 
Today I am wearing a new wig and I had to tweak it so much that I am not sure if I will purchase it again.  I had to remove wefts, the cut the width of the wig, then take out the shine, then spray to make it stop being so jiggly like  flopping fish...then tweak a little more last night....to get to the point of wearing this morning.  
 
The WIG I have on is - Janet collection - http://store.ebonyline.com/jcolkari.html
 
Janet Collection - Half Wig - Easy Kara - I have the picture below but it does not show the link is above.

Well just as an update, the wig that I complained about above my well become my NEW STAPLE WIG.  As the wig got older, it looked better and better.  this week now makes week 3 and it still looks GOOD. 
 
Yes it was a job to get it "RIGHT" but the curls are so real looking and I am wearing my headband in the front so it looks really natural.  I have gotten a lot of compliments.
