For more details on my process of purchasing, go here:
So as I said earlier, I ordered the hair on Wednesday, August 21. I had to be the one to facilitate most of the transaction.
I didn't bug her about a tracking number because I know there's a 6 or so hour time difference, then there was the weekend, then Monday, August 26 was a UK holiday. But the order wasn't shipped until Tuesday, August 27, for which I received a tracking number.
The tracking number never worked for me and that issue wasn't resolved :/ but the order came yesterday (Tuesday, September 4). No one was home at the time so I had to pick it up at the post office today.
It essentially took just under 2 weeks, and I live in Canada.
Anyway, I'm pleased! The hair is incredibly soft! It feels absolutely amazing. I ordered a 14" closure, then 16" and 18", the same hair in DaintyA's video. The closure measures 12-13" (just a few strands hit 13), and the other bundles measure 14-15" and 16-17". Because I had already been aware that the bundles come a little shorter, I had asked her about it prior to purchasing, and she explained that they do come 1.5-2 inches shorter due to shrinkage.
I think the most important part of this transaction was knowing exactly what to expect, and reading other ladies' experiences, for which I am grateful.
I will not be manipulating the hair right away, as I do not actually plan to wear it until around Christmas time. I'd like to do a bit more reading and watching of the bleaching lace knots process. Then I plan to seal the wefts with nail glue and deep condition the hair. The coils are quite springy and I'm skeptical about the hair covering my whole head, so I will separate them a bit. When the wig is done, I'll post an update.
Without further ado, here is the pic I took: (I couldn't take a picture of the measurements because I can't hold the tape measure + hair and my phone at the same time)
