Hai.  Okay I went into lurk mode, but I'm coming back out to help some newbies with ordering virgin hair, and offering advice on what to ask for when ordering, especially from Aliexpress.  My ranking is "new" on here because I signed up in February, but I'm no stranger to weave.

Newbies: When ordering from Aliexpress, make sure you message the seller FIRST via chat.  You will be able to explain exactly what you want to them, so your chances of being surprised at what you get are slim.

ASK FOR:

  • Full, thick bundles
  • Dark to 1b color bundles (no dye, looks way better if you're going to ombre)
  • 100% virgin hair
  • No shedding
  • No tangling
  • No matting
  • No smell
  • Full healthy ends
  • No lice and no lice nits
  • No dry hair
  • 100% healthy bouncy hair
  • No short hairs (makes the hair look brittle and unhealthy)
  • Good weft construction
  • At least 3.8 to 4 oz bundles

Some sellers will try to rip you off and give you less hair than what you paid for (90-95 grams).  The standard pack or bundle of hair is 3.5 ounces (or 100g).  Some sellers offer more hair in the bundle (3.8 oz to 4oz)....just be sure to ask, or you might get less than what you paid for. 

That's my standard template for ordering hair!
You're welcome.

Does this apply to a specific texture or all hair textures apply?  The reason why I ask is that I am leaning more towards kinky curly and kinky straight to make blending easier for my natural hair.

I would say its a good guideline for any texture.
