I've had Alpine Meadows since October, and I've absolutely been in love with it. But I've been due for a wig change. So instead of buying a new unit, I decided to revamp what I had, so I cut Alpine a Meadows!
In my previous review, I stated that this hair has a glorious amount of body! And for me to have purchased this unit way back in October, the curls have held pretty well. Since cutting this unit, the amount of tangling has decreased, but I still definitely receive some tangling in the back of the unit. The color is still in tact, and my parting has not changed since tweezing months ago. Also, shedding is very little.
I cut the hair by simply placing the unit on my head as a middle part (because I mostly wore it in the middle). Then I parted the hair evenly and brought the bundles of hair forward, covering my chest. I then took scissors and evenly chopped both sides, and voila!
But let's talk about this unit's blending awesome-ness! For those who do not know, I have begun my loc journey, so wearing a wig may seem impossible, but on the contrary it is not only possible, but still realistic. Because of my locs, I'm no longer able to take out my own hair to help blend with a unit, but this particular unit still acted just right for me! I made sure to powder the part and blend like my life depended on it. I also learned that lightly tousling the hair with my fingers allowed the hairline to lay more believably.
Altogether, I'm still very much in love with this unit! And if you're a naturalista, or have locs like me don't let that scare you away from trying straight wig units! It can be done!
