I've never posted a topic like this but I'd like some HONEST opinions. I just bought some beautiful virgin deep curly Cambodian hair from my PV and it is gorgeous! It is virgin and untreated 100%, which is great because I wanted to dye it a ash blonde colour without losing the curl(like below) However, I ordered lengths 16, 18 and 20 inches and stupidly decided against getting a 22 inch. The hair is really curly and is just above armpit length dry with no product.
It's about 2- 3 inches shorter dry than I'd like. I don't want a short curly fro look so I wanted to know:
Does anyone this this hair would like nice dyed blonde?
Should a buy another 22in bundle (my appointment is the 3rd but the hair arrived within 2 days direct from Cambodia)?
Should I used a product leave in like Mixed Chick, Shea Moisture, etc to lengthen the curl a bit?
Any advice would be great. I'd love to wear the hair as it is but after cutting an styling it will probably be shorter and I'm wearing deep curly hair now from HauteLocks which is very low maintenance (wash, product and go) and that's what I'm looking for again. I'd dye that hair but I've bleached it twice to get a Strawberry blonde colour already and it's not virgin so the curl will potentially loosen with more colouring.
Here's the hair:
The Ash Blonde colour I'd like to go:
Would it be possible after cutting to get a style similar to this (but curlier)?:
Any advice or comments would be great because I have to send the hair to the salon ahead of the appointment and I have until Friday to do it so if I buy more hair I'd have to do it by the latest tomorrow.
