Hello Fellow Alopecians!  There is so much info on ordering wigs, however not as much information about the condition of these wigs a few months or a year after they're ordered.  I've had cheap…Continue

Hi Andrea. We talked years ago about wigs and I don't know if you're still on here but wondering if you ever found the perfect wig for you.  I've been ordering from China for years but with the hair shortage I'm thinking of going back to a gemtress, but still unhappy with their cap around the ears.  I was reading old posts and wondering what you settled on.

Hi Andrea. I cant find the new discussion thread on the forum board. It may be worth posting again. I expect my wigs to last around a year. depending on wear. Shedding isnt really a problem over this period on a thin skin perimeter. However, the hair eventually deteriorates and begins to tangle more often than it should at the nape. I do use straightening irons quite often though, so this may be due partly to heat damage. Therefore I tend to buy 2 wigs over a year to 18 month period to ensure that I always have one thats in pristine condition and one that I wear for day to day use. Considering the price of the wigs (around $400 including shipping) this compares reasonably well with hairdressing and costs for those who have thier own growing hair.

Hi Andrea, I love my Fortune! It's a comfort cap; you can go to the website :) I seriously love mine, I'm actually on my second Fortune, the second time a placed a custom order (which doesn't cost any extra than the stock pieces!!). I got a 120% instead the 100% density stock pieces. I can only recommend Fortune wigs. They are great quality and such a decent price, I paid $289 each. If you have any more questions just message me.

Hi Andrea, thanx for ur friend request:) I have been wearing a Dermalite wig for the past three years which I order from a company called Trendco. It is a human hair wig that is made to measure, ie a mould taken of my scalp, sent off and made to me requirements, ie density, hair quality, coulour, length. I'm glad u like it, I have been wearing wigs now since my early teens and have never found one that I have been completely happy with. The Dermalite doesn't come cheap either, I pay just over £1000 and they last me around 3/4months, not sure how I'm going to sustain it financially as I am now a single parent of three children. I couldn't ever imagine going back to synthetic now, I feel I have been truly spoilt. The difficulty I've found is finding a really good hairdresser that u trust to make a good job of cutting it for u, I don't know maybe I'm just fussy. Any more info u need please ask, I'd love to be able to help.
Take care
Anna xxx
