I got the 360 frontal and two bundles (12 & 14) body wave from Addictive Glam. I got it during the Black Friday sale so it was less than $200 total.
You have to wash the hair before you wear it, it feels like a film is over the hair and lacks that nice new hair feel when you unpack it.
I knew I was making a wig out of the hair so I didn't wash it first but decided to make the wig and highlight it, then wash the hair after.
After I washed the hair it was nice and soft! We shall see how long it lasts.
I love wearing wigs on camera for the "perfect hair" look on camera without having to think about heat damage on my hair... Especially DAILY heat? No thanks! I got this lace front synthetic wig from my local beauty supply on sale for $39 regularly $50. Freetress Equal Mariah 4/27 Wig
This wig was great the first few days but then the back of the wig got matted... I put a little heat on it and it was ok but still not straight with the "bumped" look it had at first. Then I washed & conditioned it and let it air dry and it seemed to respond well to that.
Pictures in the Wig
My first week reporting at my new station I decided to wear my straight hair with a few clip ins but I wanted VOLUME! Here is the final result! LOVED IT!
These rollers were $5 at Sally's Beauty Supply for a pack of 4. At the bottom I used regular rollers secured with a hair pin. The velcro rollers I'm sure are not healthy for your hair so I would not use them daily.
DAMAGE ALERT! I also flat ironed my hair prior to curling.
For this style I used Curl Formers and Paul Mitchell's curl mousse.
For the finished style to add a bit of body and length I added some clip ins that I also used the Curl Formers on!
This style is not a protective style at all... My hair was already straightened when I put the curl formers in with tons of mousse!
The Pictures below show before the curl formers -- after with no clip in and then the final look... I did also tease the curls and separate for fullness!
