Name of Merchant: Arda Wigs
Website: http://arda-wigs.com/
Item purchased: Cady in 081 platinum blonde
Timeline: It was ordered on Thursday and then I received it on the Saturday after that ( so 9 days later) Shipping could be faster but overall not a big deal.

I dyed it green with sharpies. It's for my friend's Cilan/Dento cosplay from Pokemon Black and White!

Pros

-The color is a yellowy blonde that is very natural looking. The first thing I thought when I took it out of the bag is that it looked just like Germany from APH, so if that's what you're looking for, this is the wig to buy.
-The fibers feel more coarse but it looks very natural. Especially since it's a blend of colors rather than just one color, which looks fake
-I like that it's not too shiny. Most heat-resistant wigs are really shiny and fake-looking, but not these.
-the wig is really thick (it almost feels TOO thick in the back)
-the hairline looks really natural, but you'll have to be careful not to yank on it while brushing so the hairs don't fall off (I've had no problems so far though)
-The lacefront and wefts are designed to be slicked back, so if that's the style you want, everything is pretty much done for you
-It doesn't seem to be as roomy as their other wigs, but it's still a big enough wig. It turned out to be just the right size.
-The price is really cheap

Cons:
-This is really minor, but I've noticed that the beginning of the wefts become really frizzy after heating using hot water or a blow dryer. It's not visible at all from the outside, (only if you lift some fibers to expose the weft, or look at it from the inside) so it's not a big deal. But I've noticed this happened in the other wig I bought from them too. It's a bit baffling and I have no idea how it happens.
-It could be shipped out faster



Final Grade: A
