the company (not this one) didn't even place the order for my closure but had me waiting for the hair for one month and only sent half my order

In my case, I never pay retail for hair because I always order wholesale and in bulk - keep some and sell the rest.  When I realized there was nothing special about this hair except a cowash and a denman (easily dupeable), I decided to save my hard-earned coins.  At first, I was still going to have it shipped, then check out the curl size/texture and either return or put up for sale in M2M. 

The owner (who I have a feeling is a member) was very responsive in the sales process, however after receiving my payment (I ordered >3 bundles), I was forced to wait.  When I inquired about the ship time, I was clearly directed to the 3-5 "processing" policy and told that I was on "day 3."
 
I saw the results of someone else who ordered and I was really turned off.  Those pretty curls lose their definition and turn to crap fast.  Towards week's end, I had seen enough and decided to cancel.  Suddenly the owner became unresponsive.  End of the day, I decided to get PayPal in that azz and I was promptly refunded, but still never received an email  or acknowledgement from the owner.
 
As for my experiment, I'm not saying that I have the dupe already (the hair used I was a larger curl, therefore looser),  but I'm just showing you there is nothing unique.  As for the noob that was mocking that, that Ali hair I used is 100% pure hair with no fillers, zero tangles, no dryness, and no drama.  Good hair can be found, but you just have to know how to find it.  Fortunately I do, and I just ordered some today and saved myself $230.
 
Oh and let me leave y'all with this little gem from the BD Haircare Guide (see bolded lavender text on their website):
 
It is not recommended that you install your beautiful magical unicorn curls into your own head - they strongly recommend making a wig with it.  If you do, you will have a lot of work to maintain it and will experience shedding and tangling.
 
I bid you good day.

It's just a tighter curl, but no magic really.

TexturizedDiva, sorry I'm slow, the top pictures are ali hair before and after cowashing/plopping and the bottom pics are the belladonna hair before and after cowashing/plopping? And you're basically saying the bella hair isn't that special compared to the ali hair? haha I'm sorry
I wonder if ali vendors only knew how much MORE hair they could move if they just did the same thing Texturized Diva did with the after washing pics...? I wanna buy that ish right now.

I'm a newbie (clearly)and I initially bought the hair from the OP's experience (will never do that again, off of one review). I just purchased the hair 6/3/14, initially the CS was great, but of course since I've supplied my money no replies to my email. My question is can I still cancel my order through paypal at this point?

Also, I'll add this I bought SM last year BNC and tbh it was not worth the $$$ tangled all the time, but little shedding - very dry and super high maintenance. So sometimes more $$ does not equal better quality.

Send her an email requesting to cancel.  Then go through PayPal.  Apparently that scares her into doing the right thing.

When will people learn? IA that the hair looked pretty in the original post. 
But that website looked like all the other take-your-money-and-send-to-china "hair boutiques."
