Do they knot easily?
Are they worth the money?

Want to invest in a good wig and got a good price.

Any feedback would be helpful!

I have one for 5 years and it's still in beautiful condition. (Other company one is garbage already.) I just bought another one in the summer and am thrilled with the quality and how it holds. I wear shoulder length and never had a problem with knotting.
Personally I am only doing Irene onward. I got my new one at a sale price.

It's a real gamble. Some are gorgeous whilst other's are like horse hair.

I know many happy people and some really disappointed too.

Their hairlines have improved a lot over the years.

That being said, even their best pieces are nothing like the Israeli kind of high end wigs. It's thicker than the natural looking virgin hair that companies like Yaffi sell.

Their is a reason it's cheaper...

I wear long.
I had serious knotting problems with 2 shaitels and a fall.
Stopped buying Irene’s.
Last one only two years old.
Lasts 1-2 weeks after a wash and then becomes 1 big tangle Sad
This is after the company gave me a new one as the one before that was even worse.
Not sure if you wear it short if it’ll be a problem, though.

It is more processed be aware. They are better with darker colors if you are blonde or red it might be a struggle to find the right color.

I love irene. I wear long never had issue with knotting. 3 years later is in perfect condition. My high end Israel hair had serious knotting issues and 2 years in was garbage. Looked stunning in th first year but that's it.

all friends love Irene, went to a wig stylist today. she showed me several brands, would love to know if anyone has experience with Ruchies, or RX.

I asked about Irene, she said it was good, ppl are happy with it.

Irene go for $1450 when on sale to $1800, all inclusive (baby hair, cut etc)

Kiki better line (unprocessed ) $2800

RX brand (processed) was pretty too, $2200 all inclusive

Ruchies - Unprocessed, close to 3k

Pls share your experience if you own any, or if you sell them.

TY

$1450?? I was told 2000 on sale. Is that lace or a silk top?

Honestly I'm a big fan of unprocessed hair. I got one like that about 2 years ago and the hair is beautiful. But it definitely doesn't hold a curl as well as a processed wig!

I’ve been pretty happy. Their prices are just great and I can’t afford virgin hair wigs. They make a perfect color for me.
