In this post, I will be reviewing the Sleek Spotlight Lace Parting Wig in the style ‘Bianca’.
I’ve always been a fan of Sleek’s makeup range. In the picture below, I’ve used their Contour and Highlight Kit in Dark. I decided to use the highlight shade as an eyeshadow and interestingly enough, it really compliments my skin tone. In my time, I think I’ve only bought one synthetic wig from Sleek but I was really interested in this style because of the colour, length and the tightness of the curls.
It has been a while since I have done a product review on the blog so I thought why not review one of my favourite wigs? I bought it a few weeks ago so I feel like now is a great time to let you know what I think about this addition to the Spotlight Luxurious Wigs collection.
As far as the packaging is concerned, Sleek didn’t disappoint at all. The wig came in a beautiful sky blue box which was quite large in size so I wasn’t worried about the wig being compressed or anything which is a bonus. Have you ever bought a wig or had it made only for it to spend a day or so on a wig head so that it should flatten out a little? I have and I don’t want to do it again so I was pleased that the box was so spacious.
The wig comes with a middle parting (as shown on the display wig) in the shop so all I needed to do was apply some concealer (or foundation) on it and I was good to go. Customers are advised that they can widen the parting if they want but I don’t feel it is necessary because if widening partings isn’t your thing, you could take it a step too far. For me, the parting was fine as it was. It’s shocking how many wigs without clear partings are still being sold in 2018. My advice is if the parting isn’t visible or clear enough to work with then don’t invest in the wig! If you are brave enough to toy around with your parting then use a Twinkie and handle the hair with care.
Another thing I like about this wig is the quality. On the packaging it is defined as 100% superior synthetic hair. It doesn’t shed as much as other synthetic wigs I’ve owned. Also, there are two clips at the side (inside the wig) and one at the back so it’s 100% secure. If I could give one piece of advice to whoever is interested in this gorgeous hair, I’d say DO NOT brush it. With curly synthetic styles, just run your fingers through the hair (paying a little more attention to the back) and spray it with some sheen no more than twice a week. If you brush out a curly synthetic style, the curl pattern will not return. You can use the world’s best curling iron and still, the hair will not shake, so don’t do it to yourself.
I’ve been wearing synthetic wigs for a while now and I lean towards more premium quality hair. I think that there is still a lot of stigma surrounding the maintenance of synthetic hair. The most important thing to remember with synthetic hair is that it just doesn’t mix with oil (no matter how amazing the quality is). The hair can tangle in a very quick amount of time and once this has happened, it’s chances of recovery are very slim.
The colour I decided to go for was TT1B/30. I’m guilty as charged when it comes to not experimenting with my hair. I always play it safe with colour 1B’s/2’s and I think I’ve had enough. I like dark blondes, browns and reds so I’m going to try and embrace these colours when it comes to my hairstyles in 2019.
Keep all maintenance simple and the wig will last. In regards to tonging the hair, the claim made my Sleek is that the hair is tongable at 200 degrees of heat. Do play it safe. With previous synthetic wigs I have owned, I’ve always started with 150 degrees first and then observed how the hair reacts to this. I haven’t been bold enough to tong at 200 degrees yet, I’ve stuck to 180 degrees max and it’s working just fine for me.
The only restriction with this wig is that there is one middle parting, however, the wig can be moved to the side if you would like. However, the wig looks better styled in the middle. In terms of price, the wig is £39.99 which is a pretty normal price for synthetic hair. As mentioned earlier, a large factor in the duration of synthetic wigs is maintenance. Less is definitely more.
