    What kind of styling products do you use?

    I _think_ it's this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GLS5B9U/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    What kind of styling products do you use?

    The beauty of using gel, etc. - if you like that aesthetic (which I do) - is it further lends itself to the illusion that your hair is real. The average person's idea of what a wig or toupee is, isn't very accurate. Further, styling products, like @Noah said, can be reused - which is...

    Wearing for the first time but cannot seem to attach (scalp protector seems fake)

    As noted, clean the base of the hair system, whatever the type. You don't really need to shampoo it - spraying it down & wiping w/ alcohol is sufficient. & I don't care what people here say, scalp protector doesn't do sh*t. As far as making the bond last longer: it may work, but it doesn't...

    What kind of styling products do you use?

    John Freda's Frizz Ease range is extensive & there was a product in it which was outstanding. I mean, really, really game-changing. I'm looking online now & can't with any confidence say which one it was (or maybe the name's been changed or the product's been discontinued.). I presently use a...

    UTS + Got2B = Does it work as well?

    Oh! I really need to switch to UTS. The hair appears to be real coming out the scalp regardless of whether it's injected or v looped right? I feel like lace really limits me. I remember someone said he uses Got2B in conjunction w/ UTS here... Did you apply the gel to your head or unit?

    newbie from USA wanting some input on my first experience with a $1500 piece

    Wow, I just read this - I feel the same way. It's pretty important to see "how it's done" then emulate it. Given how many shitty installs I've done myself, I highly doubt I would have been sold on hairpieces if I hadn't had that first positive experience

    newbie from USA wanting some input on my first experience with a $1500 piece

    Thanks for the post/story, as it's a very interesting one. I can't decidedly say if you were robbed or not - as you may have gone down the DIY avenue, fucked up & been disuaded. I hadn't been on this forum before getting my first piece, but I knew going in - because my brother wears - that...

    Curly hair wearers, Where do you source?

    Same here. I don't like how pin-straight these stock units are, despite having "body wave" or whatnot. I wear a piece because my hairline has slightly receeded & I hate how curly my hair is.

    UTS + Got2B = Does it work as well?

    Thanks - have you been able to make it work on lace though?

    UTS + Got2B = Does it work as well?

    I really want to try a UTS piece but I'm worried it won't adhere well w/ Got2B gel. It works very, very well on Lace - but I'm interestd in trying UTS. Will the Got2B work as well as it does on lace, better, or worse?

    Allergic to Tape - Should I Even Consider Clear Glue?

    Tried many, many of them. Get a little more wear time out of them, but it's much. Once the irritation gets to a pt, you just can't keep it on without it getting worse & worse.

    Method for Safest, Most Effective Knot-Bleaching.

    Dude, his hairline is a joke. I have way more hair than he does & wear.

    Allergic reactions from soft bond / white glue

    Thank you! I thought clear glue is sort of stringy & gets spoiled in the bottle after a while; is there anything else that makes it a chore to use? Is it true there is no cure time w/ it? That you can, for example, go out on a hot day after you've just applied it & let it dry? WH is very...
