These are fun for occasional wear, but they aren’t sturdy enough for daily wear. You will probably get 2 or 3 uses from them. They tangle and shed very easily, but they also cost a lot less than some of the competing products. The color matched my hair very well (I color with a soft black) and it was easy to put on and style.
I’ve included pictures so you can see how it looks from the front, from the back and from the top. I wasn’t able to completely hide the band, but it really doesn’t show a lot – only if you are looking directly at the very top of the head along the part line and the lights are bright, shining right on it. You can kind of fluff the roots of your hair up around it to help disguise it. I’m sure that the curl will reduce when it’s washed, combed or worn a few times but I haven’t done that yet.
When I do, I will try to curl it with a flat iron, the same way I do my own hair. It will be interesting to see the results on that, but my overall review of this product is that it’s fun for a costume party, date night or something along those lines. This is a good alternative to that. Just know what you are purchasing and plan to be careful with it and replace it after a few uses.
