OK so I know several ladies here swear by EP hair, but who has purchased really recently, say, in the last 6 months or so?

I have some EP hair I purchased from a member here, but I have no idea how old or worn it was before I got it.   It's definitely PERFECT texture for me, no question.  But I don't know it's 'vintage'.

 I ask as so many vendors seem to have quality going down the trash..... I've decided my wig making skills are decent enough to take a plunge on $$$$ hair to make a wig with,  BUT it HAS to be worth it.  For EP prices I had better get a lot of wear for that much money!  Yelp reviews would have you believe EP hair is not what it used to be and that the 3 ounce packages are more like 2 ounces.... that ain't what I'm looking for. 

What's your current experience?

I have not purchased from them in over a year, reviews are subjective anyway. My gf complained about the same hair I had in my head but come to find out she has 789 products in hers so you never really know.

^^ Princess Grace, was the hair what you expected in terms of weight?  That aspect of some reviews I saw seemed somewhat objective - if it only weighs 2 ounces when it's listed as weighing 3.. that's a legit issue!

I didn't feel cheated and the weight was correct, I have never ordered the hair again though. It was pretty hair but I didn't get the sea has parted feeling I was expecting after all the raving reviews. To be honest I didn't love that hair any better than my first batch of Wagmans Virgin curly or the curly hair I got from hair addicts.

I cannot dispute the quality of the hair, and, yes, I too have read reviews were some people had complaints stating the quality is not the same. I have bought EP before, zigzag many years ago back when I used to relax my hair. this summer I bought the EPSRT and returned it at a small loss due to the restocking fee, however, I could not use the hair. It was just too silky for my needs and I was not about to relax my hair.

I bought some zig zag nb hair to add into some of their hair that i already had in my stash. it was very, very dry and when i wet it i felt a lot of tangling. i called them and rcvd a return authorization and was going to mail it back, then got the bright idea to just deep condition it and keep it b/c i was ready to make a wig with all of the bundles. i should have sent the tangly batch back b/c i have the wig on right now and i can always tell where the bad batch is when i wash the wig b/c i have to brush through it more when it is wet.

I ordered 2 of 'the edge' pieces a few months ago and they were not as well ventilated as 'the edge' pieces that i bought a few years ago.

I measured my length of my weft for one of my 18-20 inch bundles and the weft is 80inches long
