Well I permed my edges today, I just permed about one inch in the front so the wig would blend better. I did not perm the back or sides.  The sole purpose was for my wig to blend better.

I was just on you tube searching how to sew my wig down.  I know I had my own steps but I wanted to see if any better tips or videos were available.  I found this SISTER HERE....what....she is wonderful and I learned so much.

Hey Ladies - I'm going on a cruise in 3 weeks and I just wanted to encourage and remind everyone, please please please do not wait until the night before your trip to decide
1) What wig you are wearing 2)how you are wearing the wig
 
Remember, if you are going to the airport -- your hair pins will set of the security sensors and the lady security guards will have to pat your hair down.  Which can be embarrassing.
 
SO plan to sew down your wig.  SO what did I do...
 
1) Ordered the wig I wanted to wear from an online source to ENSURE that I go the exact color and style that I wanted
 
This is why it is important to know the vendor name and name of the wig so you can order it online if needed. 
 
2) Today I tried on the wig, cut and trimmed to my likening and GUESS WHAT...I'm going to wear the wig this weekend to see how it falls, do I need to modify, etc.
 
This will ensure that I'm not surprised while on travel.

Thank you thank you for this thread sunshine. I cut all my hair off into a pixie a few months ago and now i'm bored so I wanted to venture into wigs. This thread gave me some great tips and tricks!

Just as an update, if anyone has not make a syn. hair ponytail bun, please take a minute to make one, it is a true lifesaver.  I am still wearing mine that I made months ago, I wear it say once every two weeks for a few days or even just on the weekend.
 
I also discovered that for people with short hair like me, and people who don't have perms I found a brush to use that works best.  Here are my tips.
 
Okay I wash my hair
Then I towel dry the hair slightly.
Then I use the paddle brush and brush my hair back
The same paddle brush that you might use on a wig, I have a separate one for my natural hair.
 
SO the paddle brush seemed to straighten my natural hair pretty well, no let me clarity. It did not straighten my hair, it just allowed me to brush it straight.
 
Then I used my gel and put it on my hair, brushed it on and put in a ponytail, then I sat under my hard hat dryer.  Then of course at night, I tie my hair up. It works out so well.
 
I thank GOD for learning all these tips from you tube, the internet is a blessing.

Ladies - This is a perfect WORK WIG for me, I saw this today and it is a FREETRESS L part wig.  Now for those who might not know.
 
L part wigs are wigs with a LONG part, which you WILL NEED to put concealer on to make it look real.  Also, this type of wig allows you to CUT the part and pull out your OWN hair, which I NEVER do because my hair would not match the texture.
 
See that is the point, if you cut it open then you have to match the color and texture.
 
Also, this wig is good for BEGINNERS starting out with wigs cause it is not too LONG or attention getting.  Now with freetress, please understand...
 
1) It will be shiny, so you will need to either do the deodorant trick to take the shine down, some people use baby powder, but YOU MUST DO SOMETHING BECAUSE THE HAIR IS GOING TO LOOK SUPER SHINY.
 
2) Freetress wigs are DARK. so a 1 is so so black it looks crazy, I never order a 1 or 1B in Freetress.  Their color 2 looks like a 1.  So I always order a color 2 if I want a black shade.
 
3) You might need to tweak, no wig is perfect, you might need to cut out a track or two at the bottom if it is too full for you.  Or make a tweak by cutting the bang to frame the face.
 
Well I hope this helps....
