After doing months of research to find a wig that would hide my hair as a protective style while I wait to get a relaxer, I finally landed on the Freetress Amerie wig. I saw many good reviews on this wig on Youtube and fell in love. I also had 3 other runner-ups, but Amerie beat them and won my heart.
I was expecting a certain look...This is the look of Amerie on the model..gorgeous!!
but I got Morticia Addams instead...I don't know if it was because my hair underneath the wig is too thick or what? I guess this wig is perfect for those who just got a fresh relaxer, or for those who don't have thick hair as I do. When I wear this wig, there's an obvious "hill" on the top my head, just like Morticia. I guess the braids need to be laid flat which is impossible with my new growth.
Also, this wig is very SHINY! Oh-em-gee..those ladies on Youtube who reviewed this wig and said it looked very natural are not telling the whole truth..but then again, maybe they're being paid to review the product and give it a good review *shakes head*. This wig is so shiny, people can actually tell that you're wearing a wig or fake hair. It also tangles very easily. I find myself brushing it every 5 minutes. The shedding is not too bad though.
Lets talk about the hairline. The hairline is pretty good...at a distance! If somebody is having a conversation with you face to face, they WILL know that you're wearing a lace wig, trust me. The lace is not invisible. The parting in this wig is so annoying. They only give you like a 1/4 inch of parting space which is not enough. This wig also has some layers cut in the front. The hair can get pretty annoying because of the length, so most of the time I like to wear it in a side ponytail. When I do, the layers on one side cant even go into the ponytail, and sticks out..ugh I hate that.
This wig claims to be made of futura fibers, which means that it's curling iron safe. I really hated how stick straight the hair was, so I tried to curl it with both my curling iron and flat iron. I used the curling iron first and set it to 400 degrees. I took a piece of hair and curled it for 2 minutes. When i unraveled the iron from the hair, the curl was very limp and quickly reverted back to straight....huh? So I tried it again, and it did the same thing. I took out my Sedu flat iron, and set it to 410 degrees. I tried curling the hair and it didn't budge -_- at ALL! I gave up and left it straight.
