Hi guys

I'm a new joiner and firstly need some translation on the lingo, what is a CV and a AV please?

I have recently installed some Peruvian hair from Luvin hair on alibaba which I'm not overly impressed with tbh. I had brazilian hair prior to this for a year and it didnt shed or tangle. I bought from a girl at my daughters clinic but she has stopped attending :-( I had a bad experience with a company called global hair (I'm from the UK) the hair matted in 1 week. I'm now on the hunt to replace the good 1st experience I had. All I know is she got from India, is that the key as the only Indian seller I can see is lagah exports but he wanted me to order 1kg and pay by western union which scared me a bit? ESpecially as my head is small and only use 2 bundles? I ordered 8 this time and shared with my bf and sister in law but now feel bad as despite the good reviews the hair is not good.

Basically I have a few questions

How do I access the newbie information discussions as I can't seem to find in the search options?

When I do buy hair what tests can I perform to check its ok? I read burning the hair and shampooing with neautralizing shampoo, is this true? If so any other tips/hints so I don't get ripped off again thanks

If I want real brazilian do I steer clear off alie express alibaba and dh hate? Or just Chinese vendors?

I think that's all the 'dumb' questions for now thanks in advance guys

CV= Chinese Vendor
AV= American Vendor
 
Indian vendors typically only accept western union so you have to be very careful. I don't think that real "brazilian" hair exists. It's all processed Chinese or Indian. You can search the boards for vendor reviews by going to google and typing in the name of vendor + bhm.

I didnt realise you could buy "brazilian" from America ? Is that considered better than Chinese then ? Thanks

You might want to try using a Dove Conditioner, I love it especially with the Argon Oil

I was wondering about the Luvin hair. There's a local AV where I live and I think their vendor is Luvin... The wefts were really bad... Was your wefts pretty good?
