Sooo.. against my better judgement, I decided to try out a synthetic LF again (yeah.. .I know.  But HH has gone so to Hell lately I thought, WTH).  I got Nix&Nox Olivia.  Cute, but OMG.  There are like 50 hairs in the 2" deep, ear to ear lace front.  Yuck.  I'm seriously going to ventilate into THAT.  I knew I should have packed it right up to return before I started manipulating hair to make a bang.  But even worse, is the tangling right out of the bag.  How on Earth do those of you who wear Futura curlies deal with that, or did I get a serious lemon?  I can't even finger comb this thing to the ends.  I was only hoping for 2 weeks out of it but 2 try ons and it's a hot mess already.  

OK Learned my lesson.  This is the last time I try a synth over 10 inches long ... Confused

Henna, I'm wearing one from miss wigs right now cuz I needed one fast and just didn't have the cash for another human with issues. It's got 3" parting on top. 2 on sides. Nice hairline. Sheds some but doesn't tangle horribly. been wearing mine for 2 weeks. Oh and it's the soft lace, not the crappy hard.

Which unit is that, Carrie?  Is that one of what I believe is their Ozone relabeled units?

its Misso 308. I've only ever had one Ozone and I wasn't a huge fan. Pretty hairline but thin. I've washed this one 2x (woolite followed by fabric softener rinse) and only use my fake Denman brush on it. I've freshened up the curls with both my Remmington hot rollers and a curling iron and flexirods. I think I'll get a full month's wear - which I am fine with. I'll post some pics tonight for u

FYI she's still going strong. I ordered an new one when they restocked the dark colors so I have it on hand when this one goes. Honestly  my only complaint is shedding. Its not ridiculous, but it's not like a human FLW that you've sealed the knots on.

Misso, Fridaynight hair, and R&B 21 Tress made the best fiber wigs I have found so far. I recently purchased many of them to give myself a break from hair weaves. I am loving the wigs. They are a good quality. I can have a different look everyday.

Ditto on the Friday Night and R&B 21 Tress (just discovered the R&B earlier this month).
