Isis Red Carpet Synthetic Hair Lace Front Wig – RCP717 Afro Kinky 18 |  Color: 1B | Outfits here & here

Today’s wig is the post you naturalistas have been waiting for! A definite crowd-pleaser! This is my second time purchasing Afro Kinky and she NEVER disappoints! Let’s get into these details!

Quality

Surprisingly, my second time purchasing Afro Kinky, she was more fluffy and less defined than my first time, but I don’t mind! She still screams DIVA!

Color

Afro Kinky does come in a few other bold colors, but unless your hair color matches hers, you will have a harder time blending her and making her look realistic! I’ve never dyed my natural hair so I’m safe blending with a 1B.

◊ Wig Newbie Tip: If you were interested in color: 27, for example, you may want to create your own dark roots with black eye shadow/eye pencil or even black temporary color spray (available at your local beauty supply store)!

Cost

Afro Kinky isn’t the cheapest wig, but she makes up for that price with her longevity!

Longevity

Afro Kinky has the longest life span of any wig I’ve EVER purchased! The first time I bought Afro Kinky also happened to be for my birthday 2015 and she LASTED for months! And I mean about 6 months of constant wear, styling, and manipulation! Check out my selfies below for proof!

Shedding/Tangling

I never noticed much shedding with Afro Kinky, but she WILL tangle in the nape area like any long synthetic wig would. ◊ Tip: If she becomes too tangled, wash her with regular shampoo and conditioner, do a bit of finger detangling, and allow her to airdry. She’ll still be full!

Blending

Afro Kinky blends SO WELL with natural hair!

In 2015, ◊ Tip: To blend, I left a bit of leave out and flat twisted my hair to create a curl pattern that better matched Afro Kinky. Just because a wig is a lace front doesn’t mean you can’t have leave out!

However in 2016, Afro Kinky arrived to me in a fluffier state. ◊ Tip: I do not need to flat-twist my hair to blend. Just need leave out with a bit of texture to it. Like a slight wave from an old twist out or combed out natural hair.

Comfort/Convenience

Afro Kinky is NOT for the timid! She’s BIG BEAUTIFUL hair and demands attention of everyone in the room! If you’re uncomfortable with a lot of stares, she may not be for you.

One Last ◊ Wig Newbie Tip: Afro Kinky 18 may be a lace front wig, but I do not treat her as such! Try wearing her as a half wig! You’ll get different styles like a half up ponytail-half down, half up bun styles with 1 bun or even 2 buns, a flat twisted front, anything! She’ll look even more realistic!

Below are selfies I took my first time buying Afro Kinky in 2015!
