Brand new for Fall 2017, this is Go For It by Raquel Welch in two very popular shades – SS23/61 Shaded Cream and SS44/60 Shaded Licorice.

First – the wig. In my opinion, this is one of the best short wigs Raquel Welch has released. The cap construction is lace front and mono crown (my favorite) with that amazing Memory 3 open cap. If you haven’t tried it, the cap is silicone coated so for those of you with little or no hair, it’s going to sit nice and secure on your scalp.

The density is perfect. When I first saw the photos, I thought maybe it was an updated version of Cinch. Not so – they are very different! I found Cinch to be a bit on the thin side. Go For It is just right – no unwanted wefts showing through and a very natural feel to the fibers. The pictures are right out of the box and it was very easy to manipulate into different looks. The lace front is just outstanding. Sometimes in rooted colors you can get that dark, straight line appearance at the forehead which, to me, is a dead wig giveaway. These two Shadow Shades are very natural looking.

There is permatease but it’s not overly done. It’s an easy one to either poof or wear more sleek.

On to the colors – Shaded Cream has been reviewed many times but this is my first time owning it. It’s a lovely, overall quite platinum look. The rooting is a dark blonde. I was a little hesitant about this shade just because of that but once I saw it on, it’s definitely the right choice.

Shaded Licorice has the almost black base color with silvery highlights. It’s also another new color for me. The tricky thing about greys at my age (I’m 61) is that they can either take ten years off or put ten years on in an instant. Of the two, I lean more to platinum palettes but I have to say, this is a beautifully done color.

Styleability is a huge plus for Go For It. You can wear it off the face to either side or push it completely back for a bit of an edge or even wear a more full coverage bang. True to the adage that no two wigs are alike, the Shaded Cream was easier to style than the Shaded Licorice. I’m looking forward to giving them each a soak and adding a little spray gel.

With a very nice price point to boot, I’m giving this one two thumbs up!

Have you seen the new GripCap by Milano? I thought it was a really cool idea, but wondered how bulky it was, how hot it was, and if it was something I would get a lot of use out of. It is basically a wig cap (made out of a bamboo knit) sewn to an adjustable wig grip. I’ve worn regular wig caps underneath my wig grip (something you should do with a hand-tied wig to protect the knots) and found that the wig cap or the grip move around, because the grip can’t stick to the nylon cap – annoying!

I’ve been wearing the GripCap for about three weeks now, and I love it! Just for reference, I have a petite/average head and was able to adjust it so it fits me perfectly. I could sleep in it, it is so comfy! The bamboo knit cap is very lightweight and doesn’t feel warm at all. I was a little concerned that it would be too much cap on my head, but it is made to stretch – so I find the fit to be great with some give for someone with a larger head or more hair. I think that this would do well to hold down your biohair and make the fit of your wig that much more comfortable. I don’t plan on ever buying a regular wig grip again, I love this product so much! Not only does it protect my scalp from my wigs, it protects my wig from the oils and sweat from my scalp. It’s like underwear for my head! (lol)

The packaging says to hand wash – so I threw it in with some of my wigs and washed it in the bathroom sink and hung to dry. Putting this in the dryer is probably not going to hurt the fabrics, but it will make the Velcro curl from the heat – so definitely follow the manufacturer’s directions. I currently have only the tan GripCap because it is a good color for underneath my monofilament top wigs, but I want to get a dark brown one for under my standard cap brunette wigs to help disguise the wefts. I’ll probably get a spare tan one, too because I literally wear this every day now! So if you are looking for something that is not only comfortable, but going to protect your head and your wigs, I highly recommend the GripCap by Milano!
