Hi all,

I am about to study abroad in italy for four months and going through a hair crisis. I plan on getting a full weave but do not know what hair I should get. I have been a loyal wagmans wearer since I started ordering online. I love the hair but it is extremely expensive for my budget right now. I wanted to try Brazilian hair since that seems like the go to thing now and it supposedly blends better than Indian. I am a little nervous about ordering brazilian since it seems like no companies are actually getting consistently good reviews except QHP and seeing as I am going to a country where I can't get my weave easily fixed if it starts acting up. I am afraid of how long the shipping might take for QHP since it is the holidays and my install is scheduled jan 5th. So my questions to you guys are:

What exactly is Brazilian Hair? (As in is it coming straight from brazil or is it just processed hair)
If I were to order Brazilian, what AV would you recommend?
Should I not take the risk and stick with what I know (wagmans) and bite the bullet when it comes to price?
Has anyone been to Italy (specifically Florence) and know of any salons that does black hair/weaves?

I know that's a lot but thanks in advance ladies.

Brazilian hair is just processed Chinese or Indian. They just give it that name so it can sell. Stick with what u know. I doubt you will get hair in time with the holidays plus u dont have time to experiment.

I would say that you go with Wagmans or Virgincurl.com. I have had my Virgin curl hair for almost 3 years with NO problems. HOWEVER, when I bought it I spent around $400 for 10oz...now the prices have raised significantly. Is wearing your real hair not a possibility or maybe purchasing some falls or wigs. One thing I strongly suggest is that you stock up on hair care products in the states because the mark up is high abroad and not as readily available.

Since its just 4 months I would definitely go with what you know and have a emergency back up U Part or clips in just in case your sew in gets a little 'tired'.

As for products bring anything essential - anything else you can get of eBay/local store.

Thanks ladies... This is so helpful! I decided to go with my wags...it was expensive as hell but I couldn't risk that tore up look lol. I'm also going to learn how to tighten my weave just in case! I'm currently in an odd transitioning state and I don't want to deal with my temperamentally hair in a foreign country.
