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.

OMG !! Please take that down or find someone that can . You are going to loose your hairline . Always make sure you are in front of a mirror .
I am so sorry that greedy woman messed up your hair . I think you made a mistake by allowing her to do anything if you saw roaches to be honest . I understand broke college students . Maybe a bhm stylist can help you in the same state . Check current topics .

I am really busy at the moment , but I will check my stash to help you if possible . SMH .

It was different kitchen beautician who house i saw roaches in the sink, so I havent been to one since.  BUt I heard good things about her and ive seen her work, and the first install she did was flawless, so naturally I figured the second install would be too.

Im in the process of loosening up my edges, where it is a killer.  She said she would give me all my money back (the price of my sew in magically jumped 20$) and she would take down the install herself and redo my entire head however Im not even sure if I want her hands to touch my head anymore. 

Last night I fully dissected this atrocity on my head,  so many skipped rows, I was beginning to wonder why the hell was this hair so thin and why she didn't use all the hair in the first place likeshe had done with the last install. She used two bundles (I order three bundles, and normally she used the entire 18 inch, 16 inch and about half of the 14inch) I have a big head, two bundles is not going to cover my head and look good.

more pictures coming soon...

im going to take down the install myself

Awh man what a disaster. You should do more research to locate a better stylist. Check out styleseat.com. What kind of hair is that and where did you purchase it? I'm researching hair vendors.
