SHOW & TELL: KINKY STRAIGHT LACE FRONT WIG

I received the kinky straight lace front wig that I purchased here today, about a week and a half after I placed my order. Communication with them was satisfactory, I made a request for a lighter density because I did not want the normal 130% density and also asked for combs. Only one of my requests was granted; the wig came with combs but they sent me 130% density. I am overwhelmed by this hair.. it is way too full.

First impressions before shampooing and conditioning the wig
  • It has a strong processed smell. 
  • It is true to length.
  • It is quite soft. I like the texture, it really looks like blown out African American Hair. I am also happy I got a Color 1, it is the same color as my own hair.
  • It is way too full and definitely not wearable out of the pack. I have no experience thinning out or layering wigs so I am very worried. 
  • It has about 3 inch lace parting in front. When you part the wig, the part is not very visible because of how dense it is, so i will need to tweeze the part.
Pictures Straight Out of the Pack: 



After I took pictures, I wet it and once the hair got wet it tangled. When shampooing, I used my fingers to distribute the shampoo throughout,  it shed a lot. After I rinsed off the shampoo, applied a moisturizing conditioner and used a wide tooth comb to comb through, clumps of hair came out. Things are off to a rough start with this wig. I am going to deep condition it overnight and rinse the conditioner off in the morning.

I should have a new post of me wearing the wig in the next few days. If you have any other questions about the wig, please post them in the comment section below.
