First time wig buyer, I was so excited when I found this wig because of how natural it looked on. I pull my hair and haven't had a full head of hair in years. I was so sadly disappointed in the quality of this wig. Like many others have reported, after what feels like minutes the wig is a tangled mess. Upon brushing the hairs stretch and come back like spirals, worsening the tangling. The lace is stiff and itchy as well. And it's hotter than hell.
I LOVE IT!!!
I can't say enough wonderful things about my "Raquel." By some fluke, the color I ordered is the absolute EXACT match to my hair. I have taken to wearing some of my natural long hair outside of the wig, and then putting it up, and I swear, you cannot tell it's a wig. Besides the wonderful blending, the wig on its own is really wonderful. I have not had the experience of tangling at all. My real hair is frizzy and insane, so if anyone has straight hair and deals with it, they may feel differently, but I truly do know what "tangled" hair is like, and it's not this wig.
Not worth the money!
I have had it for 2 weeks now and it is tangled all the time. I was told by the seller that it is so easy to use: " just shake and wear", it is not the case. It already started to shed!which is too sad for me because I paid almost $500 for it.
When I received it I thought it looked great! But after wearing it awhile it turns into a tangled mess. I tried brushing it and it would look frizzed on the ends. I used the hot iron on it which helped but pretty much after having it on for an hour rubbing against your collar it would look like a rat's nest. I am very disappointed in it especially for the price.
My own family couldn't tell!
I have alopecia and needed to find a replacement for my real hair. This is my very first wig. I might actually like it better than my own hair. There is a lot of hair, very thick. It is so natural looking and easy to style. I get at least one compliment every day while wearing this wig. The people I have told it is a wig cannot believe its not my own hair. I was advised when I bought it that it would be a bit more work than a wig that is NOT heat resistant. It DOES NEED to be brushed and TREATED WITH HEAT. I just spray on a little leave in conditioner and staighten with my flat iron at med temp (350) IT WILL STEAM, which seems scary but it takes any frizz right out. Looks just like the first day I bought it! I may not have any of my ownn hair left, but I am so thirilled I have the Show Stopper! It is a life saver!
Looks great out of the box
This wig looks great when you take it out of the box, but after just one wearing it is a tangled mess. The ends look dry and you have to comb or brush often, for the price I expected a much better product. Will not order this show stopper again, was looking forward to this wig and was disappointed.
You need to "curl" this one!
I have two of the Show Stopper wigs that I've been wearing for over a year. The miracle way to remove the frizz from the ends is to get a wide-barreled (at least 1 inch) curling iron, comb through small sections, and smooth them out with the barrel, then clamp to curl. Use the MEDIUM setting on your iron. This works wonders - I can't tell you the difference. Since it's heat-safe hair you can do this with no problem. You need to spend a bit of time with it and be patient, going small section by section - but it WORKS!
Looked nice for a week
This is a beautiful wig and the color R12/16 is GORGEOUS!! The fiber looks so realistic out of the box and the style is lovely. I will say that there aren't as many bangs cut into the wig as the pictures show, just a few little framing strands. But I've gotten TONS of compliments on this wig!
Unfortunately, after just 1 week of wearing (daily) the ends began to tangle horribly and frizz... I used only my fingers and a wide tooth comb to detangle but it was a lost cause. I've had other synthetic wigs that I've treated the exact same way that look 10 times better after being worn and washed for months. So for the price, I was disappointed... it seems as though the fibers are especially "stretchy" which leads to more pulling and frizzing. I am able to temporarily fix the ends with a straightening iron (thank goodness it's heat resistant!) but as soon as I spray with detangler or get it wet, right back to frizzing and tangling it goes. In addition, the lace is a bit stiff and itchy compared to other brands. Overall, while it's beautiful out of the box and from afar, the quality just isn't there for me.
I purchased Show Stopper November 11th and have worn it nearly every day since then. I love love love this wig and the color shades are super natural. Everyone compliments me on "My Hair".
Unfortunately, the wig does tangle at the ends even with special synthetic conditioner. Flat ironing is a temporary fix to the tangles towards the end-life of the wig.
I am waiting for this wig to be back in stock so I can make another purchase. I hope that this wig and the fantastic selection of colors/shades will never be discontinued.
I am very disappointed in this wig. It tangles and feels frizzy underneath. I feel like I totally wasted my money. This was actually the most expensive wig I have bought and the shorted lived. Don't waste your money on this. I personally don't think I will but Raquel Welch again.
This wig is so pretty but gets messy fast. Tangles and tangles. Feels rough on the ends and scratches my back if skin is exposed. It starts out looking real then turns into a 'wig' pretty fast. I don't think it will have a long life-span since I've only worn it three times (gently washed it once to see if that would help with the tangle problem). The hair dryer made it feel rough so it isn't as heat safe as I hoped. I was able to smooth it out with a flat iron but it tangled right back up again. Not worth the money, but the mono top and pretty style have made me happy for now, and I plan to enjoy it as long as it lasts which may not be very long.
ShowStopper is very realistic looking.
I am 54 and for years have had my gray hair colored blonde by a professional haircolorist. I finally decided to let it grow out completely gray, and needed a wig in the mean time because the gray roots and long blonde hair don't look good together, so I ordered this wig. Am I ever glad I chose this one! First off, everyone at work complimented me on "my hair", and one co-worker actually said good morning while walking by my office, then backed up and exclaimed "You look 20!". The 20-year old girl who works in the reception area smiled and said "I LOVE your hair!" This was on the beginning of my first day wearing it, and yes it is very similar to my own hairstyle, but the funny thing is that NO ONE KNEW IT WAS A WIG! I ended up telling one of my co-workers that it was a Raquel Welch wig, and he said, and I quote "That's a wig? It doesn't look like a wig". I smiled and I will tell you, I was SO HAPPY with my decision to purchase this wig! It is VERY lightweight, and the top of the cap looks natural. Secondly, I didn't even use one hair clip to keep it on .. all I did was put my hair in a small ponytail at the back of my neck, rolled it up inside of the back of the wig, and literally wore this wig all day today with no clips, combs, etc. The cap of this wig is feather-light, and it also adjusts to a bit tighter or looser with a little band inside the back of the lightweight cap. The STRANDS OF COLOR are SO REALISTIC .. honestly, these TRU-2-LIFE COLORS ARE SO AMAZINGLY NATURAL LOOKING, I believe this is why no one even knew it was a wig. I styled the bangs with my round brush and blow dryer (it can be heat-styled) and I am so pleased .. it was worth every cent (and probably I would pay more for it now that I know how good it looks). Lies flat on your head, so it's not puffy .. looks like long natural hair, just like the photo. Honestly I am back on this site because I am thinking of purchasing another one in a slightly lighter blonde color just for the fun of it. So happy with my purchase, I LOVE this wig!
