I ordered some curly hair to play with from GHOH's clearance section. The texture is called "passion" (which no longer exists on their site), but it's basically a malay deep curly. Two bundles of 10 inch.

I ordered from them mainly because their clearance section stuff is supposed to ship 3 business days after payment (since it's in-stock?), but... I ordered on the first, sent them an email on the 13th, they shipped on the 15th, and I received it on the 17th.

Here's the hair dry and wet out of the package, I had not unbundled or combed through it.



At first I tried to make a wig, but I made the cap too small. Here's the one pic I have of me wearing the "half wig." It's just the top because I really only wanted to see what the blending looked like. I used perm rods.



So I took the wig apart a day later and made clip ins. I used all of the hair on the wig, but with the clips I used less than 1 bundle. Pics:





To set my hair I did flat twists. For the GHOH I combed through with a denman while wet, scrunched with a microfiber towel, and let air dry. Then I fluffed out a bit when dry.

I think I like the clip ins better because it's not a huge difference from my normal look.

Do you have your real hair out mixed in with the clip-ins or is your hair braided under the clip-ins? It looks great either way.

Do you have to wet the hair before everytime you wear them to get the curl to come back?

Both. I have 2 small clips mixed in with my hair in the front, 1 mixed in with the back, and my middle is braided. Next time I think I will just leave all of my hair out because it's too hard/too much tension getting those tiny clips to snap on braids. They also don't feel as secure.

No, I only wet it because when I first got the hair I co-washed it, used a leave-in, and some coconut oil (like it was my hair lol). It weighed down the curls and I wanted to rinse some of that out. Plus the hair had gotten a little frizzy.

That blending is really great with your natural hair!
