Caracas Wig by Sensationnel

You guys know crochet braids are my holy grail protective style.  But this Caracas Wig (InstantWeave) by Sensationnel is giving crochet braids a run for ALL their coins.  I picked up this unit in the color DXRRB1 at my beauty supply store just browsing the wig section.  I love big hair so I was instantly drawn to the full, thick natural looking curls of this unit.  The pop of color in the back added that extra level of fierceness that simply sealed the deal for me!

Teaching fitness classes several times a week make wigs an impractical protective style for my active lifestyle.  Full wigs are too hot to teach classes in and with my shaved sides, I’m always worried about them falling off in the middle of a downdog.  How embarrassing would that be?!  But, I was pleasantly surprised at how light and airy this Caracas Wig is. The dome cap is light and airy and fits so perfectly, it practically melds into my head . It feels so natural on my head, it literally feels like I’m not It wearing a wig at all.

The major difference between the Caracas half wig and a full wig is the “instant weave” construction has a thinner hairline and a feather light dome cap.  There’s one long comb in the front, a small comb in the back, and an adjustable strap to customize the fit.  To wear the unit, I simply attach the front comb near my front hairline and pull down the adjustable strap in the back and it’s nice and secure.  When I teach classes, I add a headband for an extra layer of security.  I can do a thousand downdogs in class and the unit doesn’t budge! I love this unit so much, I bought a second one in the color DXR991.
