Hey gals!  I don't post often.  But when I get something good, I LOVE to share.  I ordered some AAMH curly skin wefts on Tuesday and received them today.  I wanted to get my order in with the 10% back to school sale still in to.  ANyhow, here are pics of them.  Because I just received them, I will install them tomorrow after work.  I know it's a bit of a tease but I figured I would show the hair right out of the bag and then wet.  I promise to share photos tomorrow when installed...   No pw required for now...

Very pretty! I love AAMH. They are one of my top vendors as far as processed hair.

The hair is indeed pretty.  This is my first time dealing with AAMH, so I'm HOPING this hair doesn't do a bird's nest at the neck.
I should mention, although the skin wefts are 3 oz per order, I was expecting a longer weft track, but the good thing (for me anyway) is that the amount of hair is thicker on a shorter weft.   So I have to apply less wefts to achieve the same look.
Purplehaze, I usually use proflex tape and liquid gold, which lasts app. a month.  But I am going to try the *new and improved* liquid gold.  It's MUCH thinner, it comes in a tube bottle, and supposedly works the same (purchased at hairextensions101.com)

I have 2 LF's from them and had their kinky curly wefts and no bird's nest at the neck w/ any of them. Just soft and flowy!

This is such a good question. I was thinking about this and I decided that since I always wear a closure I'm going to install the wefts around the area where the closure is. I'll put braids on the back and sides and see how long that lasts.

I got the thinner liquid gold from HE101 and it is MUCH easier to work with.

Ladies - How often do you cowash? I'm worried that if I do this the wefts will have to be reinstalled every week.

I want to do it next month but I'm thinking about ordering of Perfectlocks. How does this hair look / feel?

Well I installed them on friday and I used what I usually use.  Here's what I do...
1. I measure the hair to the area it's to be applied, then cut.
2. Apply vapon no tape to weft (let dry for a few minutes before applying tape)
3. Attach proflex tape to the vapon on the weft
4. apply liquid gold to the tape, then apply to your hair (not your scalp, but at least 1/2 inch off your scalp).

 Make sure to stretch the weft out while applying so you don't get "lumps" after your first wash.  You can wash as often as you'd like.  Obviously if you're washing everyday, you'll need to install sooner, but no sooner than 3 weeks if applied correctly.  I remove and reinstall every month, and wash 2x a week.
