    Posted: Oct 01 2012 at 10:35am

I got my hair heat damage and I have to big chop, but I look horrible with low hair (I have a round face). Where can I find quality human hair wigs on the net? Also are all lace wigs complicated to install or are there some that resemble BSS wigs in terms of installation and you only have to trim that lacey part in the front and wear? I want something that looks natural. I had been contemplating two strand twists until my hair grew out but my hair is just too damaged and I've had thin edges for a long time

Hey Jolie,

welcome to the world of wigs!Smile

For the best websites, i suggest you look at the Wig section of this forum.  There are several vendors to choose from. My favorite for just full head wigs is Beauty of New York, Samsbeauty, and Wigs.com. 

The thread regarding wig vendors will range from regular full head to lace front types.

Any tips you may need on maintenance, which vendor/wig to choose from will be listed there.

happy wig wearing!

@femme,
 
Hey, femme! Thank you for the warm welcome, I'll take it! I was hoping to circumvent hours of reading the wig section before getting to the basics (I did that with weaves and I still don't know what's what).
Those favorite sites you gave, are they human hair? By regular full head, you mean wigs that don't require any kind of special adjustment, like glue or something? This is what I'm looking for. It also has to look very natural and I'm willing to invest a few hundred bucks for it. I just don't want a complicated install
 
@ Nikki
Thanks for the malaysian hair advice, I'm jotting this down, it will come in handy a little later (won't have enough hair left on my head for a weave at first) but I'm hoping I will within a few months

I like this one the best. It blends perfect with my 4a hair. they are a bit pricey tho but i kept it in for like 4 months! My Second choice is Indi Remy Afro Jerry by the Janet Collection, it's a beauty supply store brand. That is just as pretty BUT it tangles and matts so bad so you can only wear that for like 3 weeks before you have to toss it in the trash.

so again my two choices are:
Malaysian Kinky curly from Virgin Hair Seduction  www.virginhairseduction.com
Indi Remy Afro Jerry from the Janet Collection (BSS)

hope that helps
Just took a look at Malaysian kinky curly. It looks amazing!!! Seems like quality hair. Is the hair already processed (I won't have to pick out nits or anything? Something I saw in the Weave section and it creeps me out). How much of your hair do you leave out and do you do a twist out with it to match? How is your hair braided underneath? Circular? (We don't have good hairstylists for weaves out here and most BW weaves look kinda jacked, so I'm looking for details)

those sites sell human and synthetic hair.

the wigs i wear are wigs that require no glue, or any thing to stay on your head.  But i always do, and there are many that will agree, use bobby pins.

There is a thread in the wig section called "How to make your wig look it's BEST".  The OP is "Sunshine".. and man, she has tips from A to Z.

Check it out.. you'll really like it.

I like to look at wigs on hairsisters.com b/c there are reviews, photos and YT videos posted under many of the wigs.  Also, they take pictures of what the wig looks like right out of the package.  They sell both human and synthetic wigs but their service is hit or miss. 

At first, I hated their service but lately I've been receiving my items on time and even faster than expected.  If nothing else, it's a good place to research.

GL!! :)

Thanks ladies. What are the hairlines like? And is it really human hair, can you curl it? I'm a little surprised to see human hair wigs for $28. I'm willing to spend more for the perfect one

One of my friend is the round face, but she has a big bang, she is so beautiful. Maybe you can have a try the big bang, it can be make the hairline natural. You also can try the mono in the top, it looks really very very natural like our own scalp. You know now the Mongolian hair is popular. I try it and no tangle. Love it sooooooooooo much.

has anyone checked out the weave section lately?

All i am seeing is "Scammers" "Scammers" and more "Scammers".. mostly members from the M2M forum.

There are few members that i never would have thought would lie/cheat/who:&*&re for hair, but apparently, they've been ousted. Confused

There was one in particular that posted frequently in the growth section.. i mean.. who knew?

I left the weave game a few years ago and thought about purchasing hair again.  Wigs, are definitely the way to go..Thanks to Miss Vivi, Swift, and the encouragement of others, i've learned where to purchase, and how to wear them correctly - without the Paypal fallout..
