    Ordering online direct from China from lesser known sites

    I often see the same online places mentioned time and again, and plenty of YouTube videos where I think they’re pushing to get their names out (Lordhair and Lavivid) but have people used other less known manufacturer? I’m particularly looking at Honour hair and Airfeel as they have 0.06 poly...

    Poly system thickness and hairlines

    Hi, I’ve currently been wearing a lace system with poly surround which is now 6 months old so am thinking about my next one. My current one is still looking quite good and the salon repeatedly tell me I have a few more months life left yet. However, I’m tempted to try a poly, but would like...

    Got a stock system installed at a salon, is this good/the best I can expect?

    Is the 0.08 more noticeable than the 0.06? Could you still do an exposed hairline or would you not recommend this?

    Got a stock system installed at a salon, is this good/the best I can expect?

    The hairline looks significantly better now you’ve reapplied with glue. I wish I had your confidence levels doing self maintenance already. Seems like poly is the way to go and significantly easier than lace.

    Got a stock system installed at a salon, is this good/the best I can expect?

    Have you got some more pics of the hairline? I was considering a poly front as my next one but that seems as though it’s a little visible. Are they generally not a little more discrete? Possibly the tape is creating the somewhat thicker edge/lift?

    Got a stock system installed at a salon, is this good/the best I can expect?

    I am tempted to try this but how to prevent overshooting the hairline? Every video I’ve watched make it seem so easy but none has really covered how you’d clear this or even prevent it occurring. Is the most accurate method just drawing with a makeup pencil?

    Using hair fibres and/or concealer powder to prolong the life of a hair system.

    Yes, where hairs are knotted in. You don’t need to send it anywhere, depending on the loss, the salon I use will do it there and then (they’ve told me they have a plentiful supply of hairs for venting as there isn’t the same issue with systems for supply of this). If I remember correctly they...

    Lace vs poly. How different are they?

    I currently wear a lace system with a poly perimeter around the back and sides. I have been struggling with the system quite a bit with seepage and then also even self maintenance at the front and losing hairs when changing tapes. I am tempted by the poly based systems for my next one just...

    Using hair fibres and/or concealer powder to prolong the life of a hair system.

    Have you considered venting? The salon I use offer this as a service on lace based systems if you don’t want to use fibres?

    Got a stock system installed at a salon, is this good/the best I can expect?

    Personally, I think that looks significantly better, plus the style suits you more. One of the issues I find is I’m always obsessing over how my hairline looks, I have lace front but like now didn’t get the tape right to the edge so can see some fraying of the lace and ridges/bumps when you’re...

    Tape/glue breaking down seeping into system and bio hair

    I think 5 months is sensible. I have been trying to take care of it, shampooping it biweekly if I can, but water in the shower more regularly and leave in conditioner. However the seepage I think is somewhat rapidly shortening the life of it. 1 do the hairline weekly or two weeks if I can get...

    Online (China) factories or salon in uk for a hair system?

    That was my thinking too, theres only so many suppliers that they could be obtaining them from, so it’s just a case of the possible varying degrees of quality. Hence if I can order online and have the solon fit, firsthand experience of others doing the same is always the best source of quality...

    Online (China) factories or salon in uk for a hair system?

    Having read a lot of this forum over the last few days and also spoken with my salon and that getting 8+ months is unrealistic and I’d be happy with 6 I thought I’d enquire about my next one (I still have two months until I’d need to order!). My salon have said they’re still suffering shortages...
