I have a question about glues. I just bought two synthetic wigs yesterday, and I am looking for a glue. The wig store was out. Any good recommendations? I figured I would order online.

What are Yaffa wigs? I have a Follea Gripper Sport and like it but it was quite the process getting it to look like me. I'm waiting on my Freedom Wig from New Zealand. I hope it's easier to style…Continue

Ok Follea wearers I have a question, on the Follea website they mentioned under care and maintenance they do not recommend sulfate free or paraben free shampoo....I asked them on their FB page about it and they just confirmed it, when I asked why I didn’t get a response back. Does anyone know the reason? I used a sulfate free shampoo for a few years just switched to one that is not sulfate free. I would really like to know why.

Just got my first wig. Spent good money on a $400 Raquel Welch synthetic. Loved it in the shop but now it keeps becoming clumpy or piece-y (how do I attach a picture?). I feel like that is what would happen to a cheap wig not this one! Angry, frustrated, still insecure. Please help!

Hi there.. I was surfing on internet about hair wigs. I found about synthetic hair wigs. It is a simple way by which beauty can be achieved. I have asked my friend to shop it online. If you want, you can see here more about it.

@ Veronica i would recommend that you go and visit this online wig company at they are located in Canada and they do custom made human hair lace wigs, Pu skin and other wig cap construction. I bought 2 custom wigs from them and the quality is great for the price as well. Also there is some other member on her buy wig from them as well. Take care

 -Hi! Can someone give me advice on what type of tape to use on a lace front wig and where can I purchase the tape from? I have been wearing various wigs but find that Jon Reneau's Zara is a natural look for me. I have been wearing it with nothing to secure it. When I was younger I had someone pull my hat off along with my wig (traumatizing - didn't leave the house for 1 1/2 years).  Even though I am older, I still have people that like to root the hair and touch it every chance they can get (Rude).  Desperately looking for something to secure the wig.

I have not bought a full wig yet but I can say Amy Gibson has awesome hair. I had a topper custom made by her 2 years ago, blonde and the hair is still beautiful. I just got home from Disney World where it rained every day, I wore a baseball hat all week and the rest of the hair got wet. I like the Follea concept of the gripper but Amy's hair can't be beat. I am going to get my full wig from her and ask if she can have the silicone  strips made into the wig. Her hair is processed but whoever she gets to make them knows their business well..very high quality. She is also VERY nice and understanding to deal with..lots of patience.

LACE TOP  - Pros: Super light - can create a wonderful realistic look

Cons: not as durable - tear more easily.

If you are not wearing your hair going back or with a part down the middle

there is really no need for lace front.   At we try to make wigs that have a linger shelf life - that while durable have a featherweight base.
