  1. I really like this lace wigs uk. I used it to make a wig and it turned out great and looked beautiful. I've been wearing it daily for about a week now and it is holding up very well. I make sure to brush it after each use, which helps extend the life. The full lace wigs is thick and shiny. The waves it comes in are beautiful, though they don't look the quite the same after washing it. I tried curling human hair wigs uk myself and it curls beautifully. Rather than bleaching the knots, I put some liquid foundation on it, let it dry, and that worked perfectly. It doesn't stain or come off. I do get a little shedding but nothing significant. I would suggest sealing the lace wigs which I didn't do.The closure is amazing. It is very full. This has always been one of my biggest problems with closures thinness. This covered everything. I got a free part and just used a curling wand to define the part where I wanted it. also pulled put some brazilian hair to widen it to make it look more natural. Looks great.
