I've heard on this site somewhere, that if hair is cheap, that it is a scam. 
Well I found this company on aliexpress, and for some reason their kinky curly hair is quite cheap compared to their other hair. 

The kinky curly is 79.00 to 91.00 dollars a lot and the inches are 18, 20, and 22 (aka 3 22" are 91 dollars) & free shipping.

It only has 4 and 5 stars and people seem to like the hair.

I checked the reviewers and some of them, this was the first hair they've bought and some of them have bought from many different companies.

(The KC is their top selling item, probably because it's so cheap)

But for example there wavy hair is 170 to 262 a lot (3 pieces) a lot of 12,12,12 inches is 170$ 

So, I'm confused as to why Kinky Curly is so much cheaper? The reviews are good and the hair looks pretty...

I'll probably send them a whole bunch of questions and try to figure out if this hair is lower grade quality than the other hair although they market them as the same quality

They also have no neutral or negative stars but they also aren't known/people don't buy from the store a lot like popular known vendors all over Youtube, forums, etc.

There could be several reasons why a company may sell a product for an extremely low price. That item could be the least selling item on their supply list, so they want to make it more favorable. They could have an influx for whatever reason, and want to push the product. It could be a "new to their store" product, and they want to get the buzz going on it. The store could be less known, and using the prices to generate repeat customers. The list goes on and on. It could mean the hair is of lower quality, but that's not immediately always the case. Just ask as many questions as you can think of and continue to research. At the end of the day it's all a gamble, and at $94 it's not a big risk to take. If you like it I say go for it.HTH

Thank you, I'm definitely going to be asking a whole bunch of questions, and if that scares them off, I guess that means I shouldn't purchase from them!

That's true. She told me the price is wrong! I should've never said anything!

And she said "some people like it curly so we made it curly" (that was inresponse into my asking about how the hair is curly if it's virgin hair, I think she didn't understand. I meant was it steam or chemical processed, but I was quite vague. and then she recommended me straight hair. Which to me makes no sense, if I clearly want the curly hair. That to me seems suspect, but then the reviews are so good.

She probably recommended the straight because of how you asked how the hair was curly when it's virgin hair. At least that how I understand based on what you wrote. HTH
