Hey Everyone!

Hair mail. Is it the best or what? : )

I purchased Play it Straight by Raquel Welch a couple weeks ago. This is in the color Glazed Cinnamon.

Beautiful color, beautiful hair. It’s a wispy ended like bob that slightly flips up in the back. Such a nice lace front and mono part. I did find the cap a little smaller that my other RW wig, but still not uncomfortable at all. I have an average size head. I like to wear a wig for a week or two before I do a review, so I can be as thorough as possible.

This beauty wears wonderfully. I have worn her for two weeks and washed her once. RW fibers are a nice density and not to dry. Its a nice length so there isn’t a ton of friction from clothing or chairs. I do use a tiny bit stylin silicone on the ends of it after wearing just to keep it moisturized.

I also wash my wigs in fabric softener which works amazing!

The measurements on Play it Straight are Front 7, crown 8.5, sides 6 and nape 5.
Pretty light at 2.25 oz.

I have gotten a ton of compliments on this one. No one believes its a wig 🙂
She’s a keeper!

    Thanks Lori! I am now looking forward to ordering this style. You’ve described it perfectly:-) I think I’ll go for the Glazed Strawberry.. with the lighter blonde highlights in it. Your Glazed Cinnamon is gorgeous on you! I LOVE the RW Glazed colors.. so much luscious highlighting. XOXO TAZ

    Did you in the 1st picture use a low heat 180 degree curling iron.

      Hi there Myra! Thank you for commenting on Lori’s post!

      Play It Straight by Raquel Welch is not a heat-friendly synthetic. Heat from a curling iron (even at a low heat) has the ability to damage the fibers. We would recommend using a wet heat (steamer) to make any styling customizations.

      I hope this helps.
