Just got my QHP hair in the mail literally two hours ago & I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. Here's my review, hopefully someone can repost upstairs.
Three bundles of their virgin Peruvian wave, 16, 20, & 22 for $186.Customer Service
I have to give them two thumbs up. & I am pretty hard to please when it comes to dealing with hair, I've dealt with a lot of bad vendors and straight up fools! But QHP delivered. Cathy was who I spoke with prior to me ordering the hair. She responded to my questions with great detail & I never had to wait any longer than two days for her response.
I do say, one thing that threw me off was that I initially wanted to order 16", 18", & 24" of the Peruvian wave & Cathy did quote me of having to pay 29.16 for shipping & the total price being $197 dollars. But when I went through their site, I found the Peruvian Wavy & the shipping was actually listed as free. I didn't bother to question Cathy about that (I should've), but I instead just ordered through the site & got the lengths listed above, with the free shipping.
I did question Cathy about the smell & she responded --Hello my friend,
Thank you, dear the virgin wave/ deep wave hair, we
washed by Marcel water to keep the style. and we tight the top of the
weft, so it is not easy to dry completely, so can't avoid the smell, and
customer reflected that by washing and nurse several time will slowly
get out. and dear if you have any question pls feel free to contact us
for help we will reply asap.
I'm actually glad they acknowledge that their hair does have a smell to it. When I asked her on advice on how to get rid of it, she responded --
Hello my friend,
Thank you, dear gald to hear from you,
dear the virgin wave/ deep wave hair, we washed by Marcel water to keep
the style. and we tight the top of the weft, so it is not easy to dry
completely, so can't avoid the smell, and customer reflected that by
washing and nurse several time will slowly get out. and dear we suggest
you use the shampoo with fragrance to wash the hair, and let the hair
dry completed, then serveral time it will be better.
Pretty much the same response. No harm, no foul. I've been Googling how to get rid of skunk smells all day. Initial Impression
So I opened the package half way & smelled it because I wanted to see if the smell was THAT bad. & I didn't smell anything. It wasn't until I took the hair out & actually put it to my nose that I smelled the smell
(DUN DUN DUNNNNNN).
Just kidding. It honestly isn't that bad. It has the faint smell of wet dog & an all wooden shed on a hot a$$ day. Didn't smell like corn chips, surprisingly.
Enough about the smell. The hair did look dry to me upon taking it out the bag. & when I ran my fingers through it, it felt really soft, but it also felt like it had some type of coating on it. I kept checking my hand to make sure I didn't have any discharge or something on it, but it didn't. So I decided to just wash one of the bundles with shampoo, because I'm actually out of conditioner & I'm too lazy to go pick some up today. LOL.
The wefts look great, the 16" bundle looks the best, weft wise. As far as the ends, I'm pretty impressed. I've received a lot of Aliexpress hair where the ends look like a cat went to town on them. Once I do a co-wash, I'll be able to better judge how dry they really are. I suspect whatever coating is on the hair, is why the hair looks so damn dry.
After running my fingers through the hair numerous of times, I only got one strand. & after washing the 16", I didn't get any strands. Once I take the hair out the bundles & wash, I'll update on the shedding.After Wash Impression
The hair is beautiful wet! I washed my 16" with Dove's Extra Moisture Shampoo & the waves remained, but they turned more into curls. I love it! For it to be washed only with shampoo, the hair is silky, soft to the touch & I didn't experience any tangling.
The smell intensified though.
& I can still smell it on my hand. It smells like I've been washing a damn dog all day.
So I'll definitely be doing one of these skunk washes on the hair.
Overall, for an Aliexpress vendor, I am very pleased. I've ordered from several other vendors & received a$$ in a bag. QHP went passed my expectations, even though I will say, my expectations weren't that high.
I will be getting the hair installed next Friday & I will update you guys then. I will be dying the ends of the hair brown, for an ombre effect, so wish me luck!
& nowwwww for the pictures.
This was the hair right out of the bag. Ignore my vitamins.
