Chameleon Synthetic Hairpiece by Raquel Welch - $120.70
I love the chameleon synthetic hairpiece by Raquel Welch!!!!
Did the trick!
I got this product in the Chestnut color. Blended beautifully but could have had a little more highlights, and it is isn't layered enough in front. I tried one on before I bought this one, and it fit much better without these flaws. Maybe I got a bummer one, but I do like the fact that this piece took care of all my thinning spots and even my besties could not detect it. Yay!
Fits well, not loose, blends with your hair.
Needs more layering and more in the back of the piece.
I bought the Chameleon in color R14-88H (light blonde) in 2012. At first I didn't know exactly how to use it, and I was hesitant to wear it. Since that time, it has been my everyday go to solution to a big bald spot on the top of my head. I have also combined it with the Jessica Simpson full bangs piece for a little extra poof in front, but most days it's just the Chameleon. I wear it with a pony tail and, less often, with my hair down. The natural looking net base is scalp colored, and the weave in the part is also very natural looking. tMy sister was completely unaware I was wearing it, and that seems to be the general impression. The topper has really held up very well; only recently has it started to frizz a little bit. So, I am replacing it with the same topper. If they came out with a similar one with more poof, I'd be all in!
Synthetic Hairpiece Topper
I am not happy with this Raquel Welch product. There is not enough hair to hide the colored lace and clips in the front of the hairpiece. If there was just more hair in the front then it would be perfect because the quality of the hair is very nice and the top and back blend nicely. the length is also good.
Good hair quality and color, good length
Not enough hair in the front of the hairpiece.
Fantastic piece its so realistic and the colour match was a real fluke cos I have light ginger hair with blonde high lights so the R25 was perfect. I feel the price was good and a good piece to start with if you are thin on top and this is your first experience. Im now going to get a Top Billing piece as I have very thin hair in the front too. I hope im as happy with that one as I am with this one. The clips are ok they don't hurt and I swap where I put the parting left, right or in the middle by moving it around. I also trimmed the bangs a tiny bit at a time as they don't grow back LOL. Its now perfect. I love it, my partner loves it and my friends are amazed at how real it looks. I suffer from Androgenic alopecia and this is way easier than powders, sprays, hats and scarves.
Too many to type.
If the wind blows my fringe up you can see the base??
Just the right amount of hair
I love this hair piece it covers my thinning hair. my friends that know how bad this problem bothered me tell me that if they didn't know the could not tell.
Chameleon R29 Strawberry Blonde
wanted something with a small base attachment for thinning area on top. The Chameleon is perfect and blends in with real hair perfectly.
Lite weight; scalp shows through to make appearance of own hair; and just right amount of hair to blend in and seem as your own
For customers who want some fullness or height, this piece does not offer that. It is flat to the head. Tried to "fluff" up but hard to hide base. Also wish it came in a medium golden blonde color.
Best option so far
I've bought and tried a number of wigs trying to find one that looks real and not like plastic. I'd say don't waste your money on Human Hair wigs. Both that I purchased looked beautiful out of the box and didn't have as much shine, but within in a couple times of wearing it, poofed up and lost it's shape and was very hard to manage. The synthetic, Front lace wigs look nice but after a few hours of wearing them I want to rip them off. This top piece is perfect solution. It blends in with your real hair and looks more like highlights, and is very light weight. I wish it was heat resistant so I could curl it, and the front lifts up some, so I have to put wig lace tape on the front of it. There isn't any side clips, but it seems to stay secure. So far the best option for me. I bought it in ginger brown. Rinsed in Apple Cider Vinegar to help get rid of some of the shine and darken the roots with gray hair touch up that looks like mascara.
Light weight, looks like highlights.
Still little too shiny for me. Front doesn't lay real flat. Would like side clips. Not heat resistant for styling.
This hairpiece has saved my self esteem. I have alopecia and telogen effluvium and have lost about 50% of my hair mostly on top and sides. This piece clips on securely and I don't even remember its on.
Lightweight and very comfortable
I can't think of any
I picked the R295 high lighted color, it looks so nice, I love, love, love this hair piece, it is just enough. I did have a few longer strands trimmed off, but even the lady at my shop loved this piece! I have had compliments on the beautiful high lights in it. It weighs about as much as a cotton ball and you don't know it is on, plus 3 strong little clips to keep it on. I would recommend this for any thinning on top because like I said, it is just enough.
I have fairly long hair and I was wondering how this particular hairpiece would work with longer hair.
It would work well for your hair length. We recommend purchasing a mesh cap, to keep your natural hair laying more flat.

How do you wash this?<br>Is it tangle free and is it heat friendly? <br>Thank you!
The chameleon is a synthetic hair piece you are not able to place heat products on. This item does not tangle badly but you will need to use a wig brush or comb to keep the item from tangling.
