Video Wig Review: Jenika by Escara in Toast Brown

UPDATE: This wig is currently $14.95 at Ebonyline. You’re welcome. 

In this video I couldn’t recall how much I paid for Jenika; turns out it was less than I thought! I found her for $30 on Amazon. I’m tempted to try her again in a different color for that price.

Unfortunately, although there are quite a few styles in this line I don’t like any of the other ones. It reminds me of the Mimosa line; another low-priced decent line of wigs that only has one style I like (Juniper). I’m not sure why some of these manufacturers make so many short wigs in the same exact style and then try to pass them off as different by being half in inch longer, or something else so minor it barely makes a difference. But I won’t complain too much since I’m really impressed with both the cap and the fiber on this $30 wig.

The color, Toast Brown, is WAY darker than I expected though. If I get another one I’ll do Choco Frost or Coconut Spice and see if it’s better. I’m a bit concerned the permatease is going to be an issue if the color is lighter, but for $30 it is probably worth finding out (I notice that on Amazon different colors are different prices, but they are all reasonable with nothing over $50).

  1. You’ve surprised me with a great looking wig for the price, I’m stunned how soft it looks. I like the colour, I just read your comment that you just got 2 more colours I’d love to see them. It looks like there is a lot of hair, especially at the back, was it heavy? it just looks it. Lastly, are you serious people sleep in there wig?! I throw mine off the second I get home,I can’t imagine trying to laydown in it even.LOL

    • Yeah, I was pretty surprised by this one, too. I hope I didn’t get a fluke and the others I get in are horrid!

      And yes, I know women who sleep in their wigs. I’ve seen everything from people who whip them off the second they get home, to people who only take them off to shower. For some women, the wig is truly their “hair” and they don’t ever want to be without it. Personally when I wore them full-time, I wore them all day, even if I didn’t leave the house – but I never could work out in them OR sleep in them.

      I wouldn’t call this one “heavy” necessarily, but it’s thick.

      I’ll definitely review the other two wigs when they come in 🙂
