Yup, I had to restart P90X twice... Although I thought I was in great shape, the first time I started, I could not keep up with the trainer on the DVD at all - I even felt sick to my stomach a few times. This despite doing repeated boot camp programs at Gold's gym. When I finally could keep up, I discovered that my weight set was holding me back from keeping up - changing the weight took too much time so I bought these weights called PowerBlocks - they are amazing. They are like nested weights that take up 1 square foot of space. So now I'm fully into it - day 14 of Phase I.
Ok, that's an aside from the topic of hair - the Walker No-Shine holds up without any problem. No lift at all. In fact, when I go to remove it after 6 or 7 days, it's still holding on like super glue. That's why I like tape so much.
Yes You can work out in your unit...As far as washing the unit while on your head, you can do that as long as the shampoo does not get on around perimeter hairline to loosen glue. Here are some FAQ's that will answer alot of questions of what you can do with the full lace wig;
What is a Full Lace Wig or Front Lace Wig?
Also known as Full Front Lace Wig, Lace Front Wig or Lace Wig. Full Lace Wigs are constructed on a base of full lace with the entire wig cap being designed with transparent lace all around the perimeter of the wig and may contain a stretch panel in the middle. With the full lace wig, you can wear your hair in high up dos and ponytails. Once applied, the wig creates a flawless, natural and invisible hairline. A Front Lace or Lace Front Wig has the transparent lace only in the front of the wig and the remainder of the wig is made from a regular netted wig cap. You are not able to wear a front lace wig in high up dos or ponytails.
What is the difference between a lace front wig and a full lace wig?
A full lace wig is capable of being parted anywhere on the scalp. They work great if you are going to have the hair going back giving a completely natural hairline worn back or down. The front lace wigs have the lace in the forehead of the wig. You still get the completely natural look, but the front lace you cannot be used as a high tight pony tail.
What is difference between lace and thin skin?
Lace Front is usually a small piece of nylon net that extends about 1 inch out from the front of the base unit. The Lace Front can be trimmed and easily customized to the desired hairline. It is very natural looking and better for hotter climates, but is not as durable as thin skin. Thin Skin bases are more durable than lace and also gives the appearance of hair growing from the scalp. The bottom layer of thin skin base is a thin specially blend of Polyurethane materials that can accommodate any kind of attachment (bonding, tape etc), but is best used in cooler climates.

Indian human hair is obtained from individuals that live in India and is the closest quality in texture to European hair. The hair is finer and softer than most Asian hair. The length, texture and cost make this hair the most favorable with the making of wigs and hairpieces.

What are Bleached Knots?
A bleached knot is a technique in which the knot that is made when each strand of hair is hand-tied into the lace at the base of the cap and bleached to make it a little lighter so that it is less visible.

Can I go swimming with the wig or get it wet?
Yes, the wig is just like your regular hair so you can do all normal activities with it on such as swimming, showering, sweating, etc. No one will ever know that it is not your very own natural hair. The only time you do not get it wet is the first 24 hours after applying the adhesive. There are also special water proof adhesives that you can use, as well.
Can the Wavy and Curly Units be Flat Ironed or Hot Curled?
If you order a unit and select Wavy or Curly texture - that is a processed texture that is put into the hair with a perm for the wave or curl. It should not be hot curled or flat ironed as it may over process the hair since it has already been chemically processed. The only units that can be hot curled or flat ironed are the Straight or Yaki Hair textures, or any unit that states that it is naturally curly or wavy.
Do I have to shave my hairline back to wear a lace wig?
No, you do not. It truly depends on you application preference. Some women prefer to tape/adhere their wig to their hairline (on their baby hairs or via shaving their baby hairs) in order to achieve a natural look. A natural look can be achieved without doing this. Be sure to properly cut your lace wig leaving enough lace to hold/adhere to the glue. Extra lace is needed to hold the lace wig firmly and avoid placing glue/tape to your hairline. Repeatedly placing glue and tape intentionally on your hair line will cause eventual damage.
There was a time that I did not want to go out in the public in 2008. I found a option. You don't have to feel alone, embarrassed or avoid going out in the public...There are natural looking, affordable nonsurgical hair options to feel whole again.
