I never thought I'd be the one to be a victim is a bad weave. I worn weave since I was 9th grade, I went from bbs hair to ordering virgin hair. I recently started getting sewin but I had yet to find the stylist that was for me. Being a broke college student, I can't afford to splurge 130-200$ on a sew in. I won a small jackpot at the casino and I decided to pamper myself with some virgin Brazilian hair. I ordered from aliexpress (Mocha hair company), now Im not sure how "virgin" or how "Brazilian" it is but this hair has been giving me life since I bought it back February. (went through bleaching..and I see a possible jet black hair dye in my near future).
A cousin told me about a kitchen beautician that she suggested a try out. Now, I haven't been to a kitchen beautician since I was 14 and I saw in a roach in same sink I was getting my hair washed. Anyway, the lady actually had her license but she had no shop...so I figure how bad can it be and it was cheap!!
1st install with a lace closure, fabulous except for fact that the braids didn't hold up very long and I had Chinese eyes for about three days. However, the closure was flush against my skin and you could see anything. . I had chicks eyeballing me, asking where I got "that white girl" hair from and "who did dat"
now for second install, I was excited. I just knew I was going to look fabulous when she did it. How wrong could I be.
first thing I noticed was she didn't use all the hair (i reused the same hair from the first install), I like my weave to be thick and full. It was minor thing that could easily be fixxed so I didnt press it.
it was looking good until she got to the closure. oh lawd..the closure...she slapped that thing on about two inches behind my damn hairline, it was practically in the middle of my head. You can plain as day see the braids that the closure was attached to. It took me a seconds to realize that after she left.
I need to take better pictures, but I hope you can see the mess that I have sitting on my head. In one was literally pointing to where the closure was applied you could see the braids
Needless to say, I called her up and asked her to come back and fix this mess.
