I found a silk top lace wig on Gumtree, and after inundating the seller with questions, I decided to bite the bullet.

This is the unit (lace has already been cut)
Specs: 24" Brazilian Straight
Light to Medium density
roots are 1b progressing to 2

My biggest issue is the fact that the cap size is small, I'm not sure if that will fit me Confused

I'm just sitting here bricking it until she comes...

She cost £140

Gumtree is a bit like Craigslist I believe.

Update: I have just received the wig...here are some images of it plopped on my head..

Out of the bag it had a really intense perfume smell, then I realised there was dye on the cap... the person sent me some other wig she was selling which had tacky gold streaks...which she put black dye over. The hair is really shiny.. I'll take better quality images really soon...





the wig she actually sent me



Other pictures of the shady wig (chinese remy):


this image was proof that i was sent the wrong wig:

tacky highlights:


more incriminating evidence!



Right now I think I'm gonna perform some tests to find out if this unit is virgin or not, at least I paid through paypal.

Any and all suggestions welcome (seriously, I obviously need help!)

Okay, so I did a burn test, and the hair fizzled to ash, so I guess I'm on the right track..

Could someone please tell me the typical characteristics of chinese remy hair?

I also just quickly cowashed the hair (gotta love head and shoulders) which has dulled teh ends a bit, but it is still super shiny Cry
