Yes, that’s what I like the most about this method: wearing my hair up, the lace is thinner than the wefts so it s easier to hide.

I have never been able to find somebody to do my sew-in the way I like it and I can’t wear a lace wig the way it was intended to cause my hairline is too low so this is the best method for me. At least for now…I don’t know about you but this is a journey for me and I try different things and hopefully I will find something that will be perfect for me .

 But of course there are the cons I told u about, and I wish I was able to access my hair more often. I remove the wig weekly, shampoo,DC overnight,moisturize and put it back 

 Now I transformed my lace wig into a u-part lace wig (I never been able to deal with the demarcation line, I leave a horse shoe and perimeter out).

Personally, I don't really see the appeal of sewing on a lace wig, they just seem to   I'd rather just do a straight up weave, but that's just me.  I think it would be safer for your natural hair to use some sort of glueless or mostly glue free option and remove daily (if one doesn't want to be bothered with the glue/tape routine of a lace wig).

On user made a great point. the lace wig is lighter than 3 bundles of wefts. So Its pretty nice. If there were an awesome way yo get to your scalp to it would be perfect. But al hair systems have a pro and con. 

All in all I want something I can wear up. And this seems perfect.

Plus I forgot to mention. I will be starting hip hop dance and I ned something secure. I don't really like the time consuming nature of weaves. They are something I can not do myself. Where as I can sew a wig to my head and it won't cause a fortune. :]

Fair enough, and the cons have already been posted!  My main pet peeves are the potential blending issues, but since you are using KS, that shouldn't be an issue.

This is my fave YT video of one young lady who sewed in her wig - she did a fantastic job.

Hey I like peekmill and ese these African girls are really creative! I like the idea its  good if you want to put your hair up *looks secure I had never seen the hard lace technique and think its just another option. and if its kinky maybe it will match your hair nicely. If this works please post pics

I would not order from them if I were you, their have been allot of negative reviews about them. Its hard finding good quality full lace wigs online if not impossible, make sure you do your research before purchasing I once spent 400 dollars on a full lace wig and it wasn't even cable of being worn I was scared a bird would get confused and come lay its eggs in what I like to call a birds nest.

I have a wig I am going to use. The only think I am worried about it the size of the wig. I'm not sure what to do because I think it goes to long into my nape.

Oh thank god i am not the only one who was thinking about doing this !

I wanted a versatile hairstyle that could be worn in a ponytail too. But after several attempts at making a versatile upart, I gave up and chose the lace wig route !

My edges are healthy, relaxed and APL; not like hers! I was horrified and feel sorry for her !

But i digress.

Soooo I am looking for a curly unit ( maybe from Roman) that would require minimum manipulation for my real hair . I would just braid my own hair at night. Plus, I dont care for a parting, I will just wear it to the side (if that makes any sense) and off my face!

But the problem is:
- the size of the cap (one size smaller? how smaller? cutom order?)
- the type of the cap (lace front with wefts at the back? full lace? glueless cap?)
