I decided to make a post about Replicas today :)
I am using Prisila products for a couple of months now and I also own a couple of replicas.
I started to notice complications with the replicas already in the beginning, but I got some tips from my readers and could fix the hair pieces for a little period of time ^-^
What happened after that was pretty easy: while my original pieces are in an awesome condition my replicas are not useable..AT ALL!
Now to start with the story:
I bought replica extensions from Prisila (the girl told me they were replica and I got them for a fair price!)
They looked totally okay and I couldn't even see the difference towards the real thing :)
After wearing my replicas more than 2 times, even for a short period and not outside, I had to wash them because they tingle really easily!
The extensions were EXTREMELY damaged after this! I finally could saven them, but not without visible damage:
I used a special wig comb to comb the extensions and still it had damaged parts like this.
So after I wore them for the MeetUp in Frankfurt I had to wash them again and now they are damaged and not to rescue anymore :(
My wig comb broke while I desperately tried to comb out the tingles and even after using special products (I bought Wig Conditioner and Shampoo)and following tutorials of how to untangle wigs with normal conditioner or fabric softener it couldn't get better :( !
I even broke another comb :(
Now the extensions look like this:
That's the drama about my own Prisila replica extensions :(
But what I want to point out here is: Are those replicas really worth the money?!
Just a comparsion between the real deal and the replica:
The real thing is this:
It has a good structure and the hair is full and looks real! Also the inside of the hair piece is done nicely!
Now the Replica of that item:
Less hair, bad structure and needed some work until it looked real...also very hard to care for! The inside of the hair piece is definitely not as good as the original one:
Even if replicas look somehow nice in the first moment, especially because you can get them on taobao very cheap, I wouldn't recommend them.
And this is why:
This is a Volume Wig from Taobao:
If you use Buychina.com it seems like you won't pay that much:
BUT there are of course shipping costs from the shopping service to your adress and depending on the items weight shipping costs from 12 USD (I just assumed this piece is 200 g) up to 25 USD for this one hair piece
So if we pick the cheapest method it would be about 30 USD for a hair piece!
You can wear it about 5 times and then you can throw it away :(
An original Prisila piece costs a lot more!
My Volume wig (the same as the one I took for this example) was worth 5000Yen!
With a shopping service for Rakuten, where you can get Prisila things, too, you would pay about 55 USD for this hair piece and you can wear it for a year or longer if you take good care of it!
So 25 USD that you save with the replica that you can't even wear that often :/
Do you think this is worth it?
I honestly don't think this is worth it!
Thank you for reading and I hope I could help you a little bit to get to know more about Replicas and their quality!
Of course there can be good replicas, too, but me careful with what you buy!
Have a nice week everyone <3
