Hi Ladies,

After being put on blast by another member for having a nasty looking partCry I am attempting to redeem myself. I ran home and used every product I had to pry the darn thing off of my head and install my new unit... well here it is! This is a 20" afro kinky curl from holly zhang. I love her!! I bleached the knots and used the bandage method. I also had to thin her out in the front a little( stopped because I got scared lol) all in all I think I did a good job.... Please give me some feedback i can use all the help I can getEmbarrassed


Enjoy ----> http://public.fotki.com/platniumdime4u/

Very pretty Pic #9 is my favorite and that hair texture is absolutely beautiful.

I'm a big fan of thinner densities in the front but you always have to work harder to conceal the edge of your wig cap or bandage when you go with thinner densities. The edge of your bandage is still pretty obvious in those pics so here are some options for having a realistic scalp appearance:

1. This is my favorite right now: Use 3m-77 as a knot sealer. Cut the upper thigh section off a pair of pantyhose that match the color of your face or your scalp. Adhere 1 thin layer of pantyhose to the tacky/sticky coating the 3m-77 made on your lace starting about 2" back from the front of your hairline all the way back to about 2" from where the nape ends. Adhere a 2nd thin layer of panyhose starting 1/4"-1/2" from the front of your unit to the back of the crown and use tape to adhere the 2nd layer down to the 1st layer in the back of the crown. This makes the transition very gradual and dang near impossible to detect-even in direct sunlight.
2. Use make-up to color the edge of your coban.
3. Use Rit Fabric Dye to dye the edges of a few wig caps so that they match the color of your face so that no color difference can be detected through the lace.

HTH
