In addition, for those who don't know how to do research, this thread has been very useful:

I can definately see your point if you rock a signature style, but it seems to me that the cheap so-called "virgin" hair is ideal if you're more experimental? Just trying to understand better

My virgin wavy sometimes I rock in its natural state, or I curl it with my 1" curlers, same hair two different looks. I usually wear it with a side part.

My virgin curly I rock with a middle part, originally I left it in its natural color which was a natural black. I got tired of the same color so I ombred , same hair different look. The ends were a honey blondish color, got tired of that and threw a red rinse on it.

If I want shorter hair I just buy it, its way cheaper and I use less bundles of 12' hair. I refuse to chop up my long wavy hair. My hairdresser doesnt cut my wefts when I get my installs so they stay in tact.

I also rock lacewigs and now uparts with closures, My next purchase will be a dark roots with platinim blonde tips. 

Hope that helps

Oh wow, I suppose I must be one of those Newbies that just is impatient and with limited time - work is so hectic - I hope that I have not made a mistake with my recent purchase which was not cheap at all. To be honest, it is so overwhelming to find any pertinent information as there is so much and it is not easy to find - also this seems to be a case of " one man's meat is another man's poison" as there are frequently opposing views. It may be an idea to have some sort of voting system so that we could all vote on vendors or something like that to simplify the system...it is such a minefield but really appreciate the guidance when you can find the time to read through all the posts. Thanks very much to all the contributors - much appreciated

Nope cause some of them still looking for EP quality hair on ALI but I digress.

So it's better to invest in good hair?
It seems like most vendors/hair is going down in quality.


I would rather give Wagmans $400 than roll the dice and hope the 4 bundles I got off of Aliexpress are any good but that's just me. If you are constantly buying hair for every install you are not saving any money anyway. Example, I love Dollface to death, loved the silktop from April Lace Wigs, I went to that site and saw that the wig was $350 or some stupid shyt and kept it moving. Its not that I haven't spent that kind of money on hair before, it was just the principle.

I don't know what anyones money situation is, but if you know you don't have money to keep buying hair then IMO I would rather save and buy some EP over hoping what this girl on YT said is true.

I have noticed a lot of these hair companies tend to send reviewers better hair than the average client will get. Also If she slapped that wig on and is reviewing 3 days later that review don't count. Its a bunch of reasons why her hair journey could be different than yours. If she has 20 wigs, u parts and whatnot she is not wearing the same one everyday so hers will last longer vs the girl who only BUYS one wig and doesn't get the same outcome.
