This past October I jumped into the world of wigs. I have hair loss issues, and have not found anything that has helped my hair grow. After my favorite Instagram blogger posted how she also suffered from hair loss issues and had started wearing wigs, I knew it was something I had to try.
Synthetic wigs are generally inexpensive but can be pretty high maintenance. I have been admiring Khloe Kardashian's long blonde locks for a while now. so the first wig I purchased was a 22 in long ash blonde synthetic lace front wig with dark roots. Within the past 3 months, I have ended up purchasing 3 different brands and they were surprisingly very different. In this blog, I will be reviewing the 3 blonde wigs for comparison purposes (the photo above is my favorite wig -- more on that below!) Here are my honest reviews:
1. Ms.Ilsa brand lace front wig ($46.99)
This was my favorite wig out of the 3. It came exactly as pictured (the picture on the right. Clearly the left picture is not a wig!) and the hair is decent quality. It's about 22 inches long but didn't seem to tangle too badly. The cap has 3 clips that help secure the wig to your head. The cap on this wig also fit my head the best. I can't wait to see how it holds up after I wash it a few times. I'll be sure to update this blog!
I also purchased a silver long bob cut wig from this same brand, and it is by far one of my favorite wigs i own. I take my flat iron to it on a 330F setting and have had no issues. I wear it daily and I have washed it several times and it still looks great. They also have excellent customer service and are prompt at responding!
2. Persephone synthetic lace front wig ($37.99)
This wig was a close second to the Ms.Isla brand. The blonde is much lighter than what's shown in the picture, which worked for me because I was looking for more of an ashy/platinum color. I washed this wig and it held its curl without an issue. I ended up trimming it after I wore it a few times because it was just too long for me and seemed to tangle easily. The tangling seemed to subside once I trimmed 6-8 inches off of it.
3. K'ryssma Ash Blonde lace front wig
At first I LOVED this wig but I think I was just in love with the fact that I finally had a wig. I wore this in Vegas for a friends trip and it was very easily tangled. It also had a LOT of hair. So much so that I took a razor comb to it to thin it out. After I had a ball of synthetic hair on the floor the size of a very large Pomeranian, I tried it out again. After wearing it for a few hours, it was still way too much hair. I felt like I was drowning in this wig.
It also didn't wash well. It never got it's bounce back after being washed which was very disappointing. If you're looking for a wig to wear once or twice and then trash, this wig is for you. I wouldn't recommend it as an every day wig.
I literally change my hair daily, so be sure to follow me on Instagram for more reviews and updates!
