CosplayDNA wigs?

Has anyone bought from them before?
I got a curly and really nice purple wig from them, and most their wigs are suppose to be heat resistance.
I wanna try to straighten my wig but I dont wanna take the chance and melt such a beautiful wig and waste my money.
Has anyone used anything heat based on their the wigs and not have a problem with it?

I have a C.C. wig from them, and it's beautiful. They ship really fast, too~

I'm fairly certain they're heat resistant, since I left my wig near my heater when it wasn't on, and someone obliviously turned it on for me while I was away, but nothing happened. I haven't taken a straightener to it, but you can always use the hot water method or test on a small piece first if you're not sure.

Haven't bought from them specifically, but I use a ceramic straightener on non-heat-resistant wigs all the time (great for smoothing frizzy ends!). Just make sure not to turn the heat up too high or leave the straightener/blowdryer sitting in one place for too long. ^^

I have bought from them and love it! I haven't tried on the wig itself but from the feel of it, you can definitely do it so don't worry about it! If you are still unsure, just try a small curl near the bottom or something!

Oww I have experiences lots of their wigs !
They ARE heat resistant, the fiber is really nice and some colors are really cute, BUT be careful with their colors, specially those that look alike (reds,blondes) they send me and to one of my friends different color wigs and I mean waay different shades than the ones they showed in their listing, they refund half the price but still it was a hard time to get the money back.
STill I give the shop a nice grade ;D their wigs are awesome

I just recently bought a wig from them. It shipped really fast and its soft and pretty. It said the wig was dyeable but I dyed mine with sharpies and rinse after rinse, the excess dye still hasnt come out and rubs off on my hands and surfaces. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? the description doesnt name the type of fiber the wig uses but it does say that it is not kanekalon.

I will also say that no matter how many times I rinsed it or doused it in alcohol, it has not lost any of its luster.

So are these wigs recommended? Compared to cosworx/cosplaywig?

They are SO cheap, it's amazing. I've been staring at their listings and wow. Just wow xDD

If the wigs are for sure a good quality, I'm not wasting a breath in buying > >;;

I want to purchase a cosplayDNA wig but the sizes are a bit vague and simply listed as adjustable, does anyone know what the maximum head size is on their wigs?
Iv already tried emailing them and contacting them via ebay but to no avail...

I think it's a very tight 22 more like 21.5 inch I can wear them as is myself with out some serious modifications. (aka buying 2 wigs)

They do straighten easily however but are trickery to put in curls.

Can you recommend anywhere else someone with a 24.5"/62cm head can get similarly priced quality wigs?

Pretty much all recommendations are listed here.

You will just have to pay more since your getting a Larger Wig = More wig fiber = more expensive.

Most china wig use less wig fiber strategically placed to get the fullness they need. It also means you can't style the wig to much outside the original design as well to keep the cost of the wigs down.
