You guys really know how to describe your weaves. All this weave terminology has just lost me.

When I go to the BSS I just ask for a 1B Yaky 10 inch. I need to upgrade my weave knowledge

Glad to see this thread is still going. I hope it's helping you guys out.

My experience with..

Indian curly closure

Vendor: Idk (bought it from someone)

The good: The hair is versatile. The curly texture makes it manipulative to almost anything but kinky hair. I've worn it with a relaxed texture that it goes with nicely.

The bad: I dyed the closure when I first got it. I'm very careful with hair color and this hair is just DONE! It could not handle the color job in the least. I notice this a lot with indian hair. It just doesn't hold up well to manipulation. This is the second time I've worn this closure and after this it's trash. A shame too because it could be used multiple times if coloring weren't an issue.

Consensus: Indian hair is NOT what you want to use if you need to manipulate a lot (i.e. flat iron, color, etc.). Thicker textures like Malaysian and Chinese just handle it better. All my closures will be Chinese from now on.

LOL i dont see the point of posting private vendors..your review means nothing if we dont know who it is


The vendor isn't the important part...you learn valuable info about the texture which is mostly what this thread is about.

^^ fully agree. Textures and how they work with colour and peoples desired looks etc is VERY important. a thred like this can help you decide whther to buy CLY or ILY for example.

 im glad to see this thread up n running. My review on my recent purchase of Indian Light Yaki. 

So I made a mistake in my ordering should have been Chinese Light yaki but i didntspecify the chinese so Kev gave me indian as standard (Duh). The Indian is a bight lighter and there are a few more flyaways I never istalled the chinese texture before I have only seen it but there is a difference the chinese is thicke and denser. i didnt try to curl the hair thoughbut even when I plait it it didnt lock into a wave pattern which signifies it is really straight but i cant confirm if you curl it iff it would hold a curl. The hair is light so I think it probably would..

I also colored it a bit and it disnt tangle after i bleached it but i would not recommend you do drastic colours on it because the hair was a bit drer after coloring and i think the dryness would probably lead to tangling ...

anyway other than that love the texture blends beautifully with my hair when relaxed and not as shiny as just normal straight hair.

My Review for

LAVISH LENGTHS
www.lavishlengths.com

18" Bohemian Curly
8 oz
self install with approx 6 oz unsplit wefts





I was thoroughly impressed,
I felt the packaging was nice
and neat, and the hair looked
pretty. I initially thought the
curls looked very uniform.


At first I used Dove
Intensive Therapy Shampoo
and Conditioner. I also tried
Tresemme' Curly Shampoo
& Conditioner. Now I am
using Pantene Frizzy to
Smooth Shampoo and
Conditioner. I prefer the
Pantene.



 It flat irons pretty
easily after blowdrying. It it
a little puffy when just
attempting to flat iron
without blowdrying first. On a high (450 degree) iron
my curls stayed intact
overnight.



 I wash my hair every 2 or 3 days. I
washed it daily for about 4 days. Pretty
much, whenever I am going somewhere
and want it to look fresh, I wash it.
 I only straightened it twice.
Other than that, I wear it in its natural
state.


I sealed my hair with the he101.
I sealed the whole weft on one side, but I
do this with every hair type. The hair does
shed, but it is general detangle shedding. In
general, I've not noticed any excessive
shedding.


 My hair tends to get dry and the ends will
tangle. I don't feel it is abnormal tangling
for the length and texture though. The hair
is NOT matted, but it will tangle up on
itself a bit. Once wet, the tangles sort of
disappear though.


 I have tried Cantu Shea Butter, Dove
Products, Tresemme Products, Pantene
Products. I apply castor oil to the ends of
the hair to prevent drying and seal in
moisture.




Without product this hair gets HUGE. 
I
don't like to use a lot of product, so I
cowash every 2 days, then seal with a thin
coating of castor oil or evoo, let air dry and
go. I think the hair can look frizzy with too
many products. I prefer it to look as close
to its natural state as possible.






I rate this hair an 8 overall and about a 9
compared to other curly hair that I've worn. The owner Jessica is a doll.  She asked me to be a tester & I was sent this hair in exchange for review.


Really nice post.

My experience with: deep curly

Vendor: Jeffrey

Details: about 7oz of 16", 1b dyed by vendor

Pros: I think this hair Borders on kinky curly, but a very loose curl. I love the hair. Soft to the touch once you moisturize. It loves cantu leave in, suave Shea conditioner...heck, it seems anything that has moisture except for Aussie moist...it hated it.

Cons: its not low maintenance hair..no curly hair is. It sheds when detangling..BIG TIME. But once you find the right products, the shedding is at a minimum. I didn't seal, but I didn't cut the wefts either, soooo...LOL.

Verdict: love the hair anyways! LOL
 
 
Do you  have his contact info and or link I am trying to find a new vernder and i heard good stuff about him.

VENDOR: Jeffery
Installed: 18in/22in
Texture: Virgin Chinese

Good: Got bone straight, Held curls for a while , Fast shipping

Bad: Shed like a dog!( But i didnt seal and i cut the wefts) Had tangling issues at first but it lessened. The hair hated being deep conditioned and any product would weigh it down.

Conclusion: If i was really broke i would get this hair, just hated the constant shedding

Good: Got better and better after time, held curls well, waves never went away after plenty of heat

Bad: Shed like crazy, Ends was soo frizzy but i refused to cut lol, Hair came shorter then expected, rinsed black after every wash ..maybe cause hair was dyed to 1. In the summer it was impossible to wear straight

Conclusion: Nooo hair is way to pricey can get hair for cheaper and better quality else where
