    Posted: Jan 10 2013 at 8:58am

I took the plunge and purchased a chinese remy kinky straight lace front wig. She looks gorgeous. But immediately after wearing her- no heat.. she poofs and frizzes out.

 

I have tried washing, deep conditioning, argan oil, frizz ease, flat ironing, flexi rods, bleach bath, and last resort.. relaxer..

I walk 5 minutes in a straight line.. nothing crazy.. and she poofs at the neck area and at my ears. Everywhere except where the lace is.. (Shoudda got a full lace wig).

 

She is a WILD Hot Mess. I have to brush her constantly. But I need to tame her. If I could she would be the perfect unit. I have a special occasion this weekend I would love to put the flexi rods in.. But I also need to be able to wear her in her normal state- just straight down. Tell me what to do, I will do it, tell me what to buy an I will buy it!!!!

Haven't had a chinese KS unit but I've had TONS of chinese units processed to different textures. It's odd that yours is poofing....chinese normally does the opposite. I would say wash and condition with Dove products follow up with an ACV rinse, a dab of virgin coconut oil while it's wet. Let it air dry and then flat iron. You should be good to go after that. HTH

Hmmm Processed Chinese doesn't poof. That's quite odd.

Yeah, that's what I thought. My Chinese KS doesn't change unless water hits it....

I'm wondering if you were sent an Indian remy processed to KS by mistake.  Try an anti-poof serum, like Sabino moisture block, on your next shampoo.

You can try the "Cowboy Magic" detangler. It's primarily for horses, but is safe for humans and dogs as well. Search for Sexibeach's old posts about this. I purchased some years ago and still use it for my: wigs, dog (a very hairy Pomeranian), and at times on my hair. It works miracles on untameable/unruly hair. Hope this helps.

Cowboy Magic can be used on dogs? Wonder if it will tame my Bishon Maltese? C'mere Bella, I want to show you something. Evil Smile

*Thin it out a bit in the area that is tangling/poofing
*Use Dove Nutritive Oil Therapy Conditioner (sold at Walmart) on it as a deep conditioner, or at least for 5 minutes. It contains Lactic Acid and tames the beast without loosening the kinky straight texture.

I have used gallons & gallons of Cowboy Magic over the years and love it, but this Dove Nutritive Oil Therapy is my current love for unruly afro & kinky texture units.

Try another bleach bath. I have had to do the BB mulitple times on a rotten wig. 

The wig may have some synthetic in it. Give it a good hot oil treatment and comb out well before rinsing or washing.
