Fingercomber Natural Hair Wig Review

 
 

After seeing how realistic Fingercomber.com‘s natural hair wigs appear via their website, many were in love with their realistic look. Now that I have worn the wig for the past week and a half here is my review.

Wigs are a great way to give yourself something new and implement protective styling. Not to mention, they are extremely low maintenance for you gals who are constantly on the go. So of course when I saw this product, I bought it right away like many others because it sold out rather quickly. As of now their product is back in stock and their site has new cool design.

 

How real does it look in person?

It looks very real, I am only a little disappointed that they do not have more hair color variety. My hair is naturally a dark brown and at this time they only offer the color chestnut black for the fingercomber unit. So while it looks authentic, I wish they offered something a little closer to what my hair color actually looks like. As far as the texture goes, it is very believable. My hair texture is quite similar to that of the wig and for people who do not know me personally may assume that the wig is all me.

Quality

To care for your wig ideally you should have a Styrofoam Mannequin to keep the shape of the product. However, this week I have been quite lazy and have been placing it on my dresser instead. It is holding up quite well in fact. The shape is still all there and there are no terrible tangles or anything of the sort, which is quite impressive. But don’t do what I did! Use a Mannequin to protect your unit.

Is it secure?

Another thing that I would like them to improve on is the security of this wig. I usually love wigs that have the comb piece included because you can feel more assured that it won’t fly off your hair in the case of a gusty wind or an intense activity. However, this piece does not come with one and for added security I suggest you use some bobby pins so your wig doesn’t accidentally fall off. I also was struggling at first to figure out which way the wig goes on, but after playing around with it a bit, I was able to figure it out by seeing which way looked the best and the inside structure of the wig.

Overall….

I love the wig and so do my friends! My friend Jen, who is considering go natural even tried it on for herself and said she would love something like this for her transitioning process should she decide to go natural. What I love the most about this product is the fact that I don’t have to go so far off from my natural look when I want to give my hair a break and implement protective styling. I probably will be ordering their Wash n Go unit because it resembles my hair color more. They also have a great tutorial on Havana Twists I would love to try!

Product Care

Treat the wig similar to how you treat your natural hair, which means gentle care. Don’t comb through it roughly use your fingers instead. Braid,twist, and/or roll for a curly afro look. You can even wear the fingercomber unit twisted if you prefer. To cleanse use a mild shampoo, conditioner, and warm water. This is synthetic hair so you cannot use heat appliances on this hair, to curl you can use rollers and dip the hair in boiling hot water instead.

 *This review was not compensated. I bought the product for myself, because I really loved how the wig looked and I am sharing the review of this product with the Black Naps community.

    I’m excited about getting my finger comber unit, I ordered mine on July 22nd, it’s now Aug. 13 can someone tell me how long does it take? Thanks

    question– I have alopecia, my head is bald in the top center, being that I don’t have hair to blend in would this wig work for me? I do have edges, your honest opinion would be great.

    Thanks for your review! It’s very helpful!! I was considering purchasing this unit but I’m not sure how the hairline is constructed. I noticed you have a headband on in your pics; do you have to wear a band to cover front hairline? Or is it like a a half weave?
    Also, I read on their website that this unit is delivered in two-strand twists. Did you twist it out or do the twists stay in tact?

      No, I took out the twists, when it was delivered it came two-strand twisted. It is best to have a small portion of your hair in the front out to cover the hairline so it looks more realistic. You can braid or twist the front portion of your hair so it will blend. You don’t have to wear a headband, I just chose to.

    Too funny because I am staring at mine on the dresser. I love mine and I too hate that i am a brown and the unit is a tad darker in than my hair so I avoid major sunlit areas. I also cut mine down the middle and sewed combs in the perimeter of the unit as well as the loose hairs I sewed really really tight. hated the bunched up look at the crown. I wanna order another but would love a dark brown. I also hate that it is like doing your own hair because you gotta keep retwisting to keep the patter.

    I am considering purchasing the fingercomber unit, but it seems a bit pricey considering that it is synthetic hair. You posted this review in August, and it is now December. How well is the unit holding up over time? Do you still think it is worth the investment?

    • says

      My unit held up fine, its definitely still in good condition. It’s good for those days were you don’t feel like doing your hair. The only criticism I have for it really is the lack of combs inside of the wig to secure it on your hair. However, you can manually install these if you wish.
