No real technique. Sewed using simple hand stitches. Cut the pieces did a rough fit on my head and did a loose basting stitch to hold together, then back stitching once I was satisfied with the fit. I'd never let anyone see the inside of this bad boy, but it'll hold me until my new unit gets here next week and I have time to tweak that for wearing.

I really like the Peruvian that I have, and I like Malaysian for a close 2nd, or high quality Indian hair (if can find it LOL).

Help....
I love the lace on my Ozone wig... is this what they call
super fine swiss lace chat?



I did seal the knots ... however she is still shedding...
I never had a shedding issue before
Thanks Chat...


PS.... Also had to put powder on her due to shine etc.
some tangling --I used softer..

All, in all, I think I would like a CY or a LY FLW...

is it shedding from the lace part or the wefts? Try sealing the wefts in the back as well.

^^^ thanks…
It sheds all over… meh…
I did seal the knots ALL OVER with GTBG spray and applied clear nail polish on the tracks / wefts.
Do you think that is tooo much…? Meh


However, I would like to know what lace they are using on the Ozone wigs….for my next order for a FLW. I wonder If Chat knows?

Hi Mommykat, sorry, just saw your post.  I didn't hit BHM again until the 4th and that's when I became mesmerized by the latest Jace thread. LOL

To answer your questions - 

- the lace is Swiss lace (a nice quality Swiss for a synthie!).  It isn't super fine, super fine can be rather fragile, but i have yet to try it (will splurge one of these days to use on the perimeter of a silk top wig).

- My Ozone also sheds, but I don't wear it often enough to bother sealing.  You said that you sealed the knots, did you mean to say that you sealed the wefts?

- re: shine, which color did you buy?  My wig was a bit shiny, but didn't have a doll shine imho.
