Happy Monday, From My Girl “Gardenia” and Me! (My Very 1st Wig Review!!!)

Hey Y’all!

So I recently tried my very first wig and I think I may be hooked! I love switching my hairstyles, but I typically just spend the money to have someone else do it because my hair is so thick and I don’t really like styling it on my own. Now that I’ve experienced what it’s like to switch styles with as much ease as switching baseball hats, though, I think I may have discovered a new pocket and style-friendly obsession! Last week I rocked the It’s a Wig!L Part Lace Gardenia” in color 1B from the My Own Part collection. Gardenia is a long, synthetic iron-friendly lace front unit. She has a very loose spiral curly-wave pattern and front right part. The part was a little too thin for my personal liking, so I just secured the unit on a wig head with wig pins and widened it by tweezing a few of the strands out. After putting Gardenia on, I cut a few pieces in the front at an angle just to give her more shape around my face. What I love most is the looseness of the curls. They give you a fun and free kind of look, which I think is perfect for the spring and summer! The construction is also really good with combs in the front, sides and back for security. I used the installed combs to secure verses using a lace front glue or double sided tape. She comes with care instructions too.

While the overall style of the wig is really cute and it is made very well, I do have an issue with the hair quality. It tangles really easily and very frequently, even after you detangle it. It’s also a tad frizzy, but I applied a little Curls Unleashed Let it Flow Shine & Define Mousse throughout the curls and it helped to control it.

If I had to rate the style, I’d give it a perfect 10 because I really love the look! I would give the hair quality a 7 though because the tangle factor can be a little annoying, but not intolerable. I definitely recommend giving it a try if you want something cute, quick and fun. Gardenia is the perfect complement to the fun girl who’s stylish, free-spirited and young at heart!
