I received the Carrie lace front synthetic wig in Butter Scotch for review! It came packaged nicely and I like that it came with the two combs that can be sewed in if necessary, two wig caps and a care instructions tag.
The wig itself is surprisingly realistic! It’s super soft and looks and feels like real hair! It smells nice too! Like a straight from the salon shampoo smell, not plastic or weird like some other wigs I’ve come across, so that’s nice! I raked my fingers through it over and over and there was no shedding at all! I then took a brush to it and still no shedding! That’s definitely a first for me!
The hairline is relatively realistic and doesn’t need much plucking. I love that this wig has a side part and goes all the way back to the crown! It is a little dense so a little plucking is necessary. But the density is actually a good thing because it covers the wefts! I was afraid the you might be able to see them but after inspecting the entire wig, they are completely unnoticeable! That’s always important.
The hair length is really nice and I love the face-framing layers. They really add to the overall realisticness of this wig! There is a bit of shine to the fibers as always when it comes to synthetic wigs but it’s nothing a good dry shampoo can’t fix! I used it on the roots and closer to the head only because the shine actually makes the ends look more like real, healthy hair! Speaking of roots; This is a personal preference, but I would love to see a shadow root on this wig! I think they look amazing with lighter colored hair and a good shadow root is universally flattering and always adds even more realness over all!
Cutting the lace was easy and putting it on was even easier! I didn’t need to use any glue, as the lace stayed down and didn’t budge. It was breathable and flowed very naturally when I moved. It also didn’t tangle, which could be in part of it being the perfect length or because of how soft the fibers are! Overall I am very happy with this wig and it’s quality! I would definitely recommend!
Today we are highly recommend a post for women who want a long bob wigs. Alice is a new arrival lace front synthetic wig, longer bobs are flattering to every face shape and they are a welcome change for the cooler weather.
Find why she love this hair and what make she highly recommend it to all of the women on her blog. Reveal a bit, she even love the original look of the wigs in the box. “In the box you can see how beautifully blended the colors are! Notice she’s in a hairnet. I NEVER get rid of the hairnets that my wigs arrive in. After every use, I put the wig back into the net. It helps retain the shape if I’m not going to wear it the next day!”
Also she loved the density of this wig: “Density is another quality I love in a wig. My bio hair, when I had all of it was incredibly thick and dense. Even now with my bald spots, the hair that remains is ridiculously thick and dense. So, you can probably imagine my concern when I took a better look at Alice.”
One more, The cap has some stretch making it larger-head friendly and the wefting is nice and close together. It is well-constructed! The color. Chocolate Caramel. A medium to darker brown base with golden, caramel and blonde highlights throughout. LaVivid got this right! The colors are so well-blended, nothing chunky or uneven. The highlighted strands look as though you spent a fortune at the salon to get that perfect sun-kissed look.

As I hung up the phone, a wave of dread overtook the perfect joy I had just experienced. My oldest son had called to let me know that he planned to ask his girlfriend, his soulmate, to marry him. All mothers pray for this moment-that their children will meet the right person to share their life with. And, I was beyond thrilled about this news. Visions of a perfect wedding flashed through my mind. Suddenly, they stopped abruptly on my head-my hair, actually. I couldn’t see the beauty of the bride and groom. I only envisioned the wedding photos and how I would ruin them with my messed-up hair. That was the way I saw myself-a balding photobomber who ruined every photo, every video. This moment that should have been celebrated turned into panic.
Over two decades ago, about 18 months after the birth of my second son, I began dealing with permanent hair loss. Most women experience hair shedding after they deliver a baby due to changes in their hormonal chemistry, but that gradually reverses itself and they regain any lost hair. It’s not permanent. However, that wasn’t the case for me. My hair just didn’t stop shedding, and what came out never returned. So, I went to see my OB/GYN and she referred me to a connective tissue specialist for an appraisal of my condition. The doctor took a scalp biopsy and told me that I had Androgenic Alopecia-a genetic or pattern baldness experienced by both men and women. It is inherited from one or both parents and can be triggered by hormones at any time after puberty. Hair is lost at the front, top, and the crown of the scalp. The hair loss can vary from thinning to complete baldness. It is estimated that around 50% of women over the age of 65 experience female-pattern baldness.
Now knowing that I had Androgenic Alopecia, I had to slowly come to grips with the fact that most of the hair I lost wouldn’t be coming back. I stopped coloring my hair because I could see that the chemicals in the hair dye caused me additional issues-weakening the hand strands and creating more fallout. Having a fully gray head at that age left me looking older than I was and older than my friends. But, I just didn’t see any other alternative. I struggled to style my progressively thinning hair, pulling it back in a sparse ponytail for many years and wearing fabric headbands to hide my thinning hairline. Yet every day, I knew it was getting worse, and I wouldn’t be able to camouflage it any longer.
As it turned out, the engagement announcement was the moment that led me to search for a resolution to my problem. Hitting YouTube hard, I watched dozens of videos about hair loss, which led me to wigs and wig review videos. Seeing that wigs were NOT the sweaty, molded-cap designs they were in years past, I started to entertain the idea of purchasing one. Certainly, I would have to do it quickly if I was going to find a wig and get used to wearing one before my son’s wedding. I purchased my first wig. I immediately fell in love with her, and she was in a price range that seemed reasonable for a first wig. The day she arrived, I was SO nervous! What if I looked terrible in a wig? I would have to attend the wedding and find places to hide to avoid the photographer. I know that sounds so vain, but women count on their hair to create their look. Without it, you have to redefine your identity. It’s not easy to do without your hair!
Wearing a wig to my son’s wedding gave me courage and built back up the self-esteem I had lost so many years ago. I got many compliments on my “hair,” and when the wedding festivities were over, I was ready to add to my alternative hair collection.
That’s when I discovered UniWigs, specifically the LaVivid Collection. I began wearing LIZ, a short bob with silky Kanekalon fibers. Her color, Java Shimmered, was simply gorgeous! It looked like I had just walked out of the salon with a new haircut, color, and highlights! I also own Natalie in the color Shadow Chestnut, and I adore her too!
It is amazing to me how something as easy as wearing a wig can boost a person’s self-confidence so greatly. I only wish I had known how incredible this was going to feel years ago, not having to suffer so long.
“If you prefer a style with a bit of layers, this is the one for you. This short style is so liberating! I don’t think that I have ever felt so confident and completely natural in a wig, before trying this style!!!This is a synthetic wig, but it looks very expensive and elegant. It is comfortable to wear in summer.Highly recommend!I will buy another one soon!” – Liz
“I usually wear long wigs in Winter and short wigs in Summer. This short wig is beautiful. I like fringe and I can make it with my hand on this wig.The wig style is fashion and fabulous. I love it.” – Kate
“I have several wigs and enjoy most of them. However, this one is my favorite. It never needs anything other than a shake and you are ready to go. I get compliments on it every time I wear it. I am considering getting another color. You can’t go wrong with this one!” – Halle
“Love it..looks like my own hair. Bought another for back up and because I used too strong of a hair spray and cannot now get back to original texture. Have used wig shampoo and conditioner which did not do anything to restore back to original state.
Customer Service has not responded to multiple emails for advice..very disappointing as they were helpful in the beginning.”- Kate
“I have PCOS and suffered hair loss for many years. I have to wear wigs and I have many wigs in my closet. This wig is one of my favourite. It’s very comfortable. Sometimes I wish to have bangs and it’s easily to fiddle with the front hair. I’m happy with it.”- Liz
“My friend has cancer at stage 4. I can’t imagine how she being told at that time. I know many people use wigs, So I bought this one for her. She loves it so much. Thanks God this wig helps her out.”- Halle
I think most of people know wigs. There are so many different types of wigs in the marketing. Young people would like to choose colorful wigs. There’s no doubt that it accords with the tastes of young people.
But if you want to hide your thinning hair and look more formal, you would consider it seriously. For people who have hair loss, both of hair toppers and wigs can be used.
There are two main consideration many women think about when they decide it’s time to move on from a hair topper to a wig.
First, it becomes harder and harder to integrate your topper to your bio hair. Secondly, the ends of your hair might become so thin that it’s difficult to integrate that area, too.
It’s definitely a personal decision, but wigs can be a fast & simple solution to integration problems, or for women whose hair loss is too advanced to comfortably wear toppers. Or, for those that just want to!
A trendy look features a wispy cut with progressive mixed layers with heavily texturized beveled ends. Pasty wig is really hot among white women.

I wanna write this blog quite for a while. I have contacted with several cancer patients and invited them to review our products. They did review our products and gave out honest advices. Here I will talk about how to pick out a wig when hair is gonna fall out. People ask this question all the time when they want to get their first wig. So I decided to share something I’ve learned. I’ve by no means a wig expert. But I do have a couple of tips that hopefully be helpful.
So the first, what I want to talk about is real hair versus synthetic hair. It’s nice to have real hair because it can change up style when you want to have it curly one day or straight the next. You can also dye the hair. It’s real just like when you with more hair. So there are definitely some good things to be have real hair.
But with synthetic hair, it’s nice because the way you buy it, it’s the way that the wig will look as it is. If you wash it, it’s gonna go back. Especially when you’re going to cancer treatment, you don’t want to spend a ton of time when you’re not feeling so good. If you buy a wig that is very curly with synthetic, it’s gonna stain curly. If you are a cancer, get synthetic hair is a good choice.
The second thing is long hair versus short hair. If you can plough the short hair look, you can definitely go with that. They will last longer because they don’t have that function rubber on your back or your shoulders. For longer wig, it would be a fabulous looking but a little bit boring on caring.
Now when you go to pick out a wig, try to find out a lace front wig or with bands. You could choose a wig which can part it anyway you want. So I definitely recommend doing the lace if you don’t wanna go with fake at all. You may ever bought cheap wigs about $60 or $70 but I think you don’t wear them any more because they don’t look good and don’t last very long. So it’s worth spending a little bit more money .
I definitely advice you go to “UniWigs” online website and check out all beautiful wigs. Uniwigs Lavivid wigs are made of high-end quality Synthetic wigs.

“I have a great review as I wanted to thank your company for changing mine and my kids\’ life… review follows with pictures but I don\’t know how to get them online…
Thank you for changing my whole self-esteem. It feels great to walk with my head up again and have a full head of hair.
My review reads as :
I love my new Carrie. I want to first start with I got a completely different color than my normal hair color. I got the Almond frost and it is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL. The pictures do not do justice for the color. My picture is literally right out of the box and it needs a few tweaks or adjustments but I was so excited that I had to share right away. My hair is very light blonde mixed with grey, and dark roots… problem being is I am in chemo and it is falling out more and more every day. I have yet to see anyone with this wig that didn\’t look great with it on. I want to thank UniWigs for changing not only my life and self-confidence but my kids\’ life also. they are getting their fun-loving,…lots of adventurer mommy back. I no longer want to stay home and hide. It is truly amazing what and how this wig has changed me…..LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS WIG…..”
“The Liz in light brown is perfect for me. This is my natural style and color, so I feel very comfortable wearing it. The wig is well made and needs no styling. I normally wear average, but this one is a little small, but I’m making it work. Highly recommend!”
“I have already purchased the Lisa and Patsy. I love both of them. So this time I would like to try this Liz Wig. And UniWigs LaVivid didn’t let me down. This Stylish Soft Bob, just like my other two LaVivid Wigs, it feels really comfortable and doesn’t look wiggy at all. Good Job UniWigs!”
“I really love this classic Bob Hair Style! I have ordered the color Java-Shimmered, which matches my skin tone perfectly. This wig is lightweight and I felt pretty comfortable wearing it. I love Liz !”
