    Posted: Oct 09 2014 at 8:33am
This is hair from indianhairindia.com. I was sent this hair for review. I did not pay for the two bundles, I was curious about the Indian Hair, as BDogg has been slipping big time, and I have never been a fan of Western Union. He does accept Paypal, so I figured if I wanted to follow up with an order, I can get my money back if there is an issue with bad hair or I don’t get my product.

I asked for 2 bundles in 20”. I don't wear mine thick. Looking back I should have specified the very curly hair, as there is some on the website which looks spectacular, however that was my fault for not requesting. He sent out 24-26" after telling me that he would send 22".

Disclaimer: I have not worn the hair, this is my initial review.

Communication:
We had communicated via email back and forth about 5x before the hair was sent out. I have asked questions about shipping (typically $35 DHL), wefting, prices (including possible increases), communication, weight of bundles, who he ships to (you know I had to ask), small and large orders and return policies. Communication was always quick, however the fact that I was review may or may not have played a part in that. I would have to say that I felt more comfortable than I have with some popular AV vendors. He is available via email, whatsapp, and several phone numbers. His English is some of the best that I have seen. No way perfect, however he does attempt to understand you. I have repeated myself once, and it appears that eventually he gets what I am saying. This was better than every attempt I had with other Indian Vendors.

Packaging:
The packaging was typical. It arrived DHL from India within 3-4 days. I did not follow up with the tracking number to check when it did arrive (can you believe it, sent a tracking number without asking), however I was outreached to make sure that I did get the product. I would have to say, I have never had a vendor do that. Upon arrival, there were no nits and the hair smelled like Indian shampoo. I cannot describe the smell if you have never smelled it. It was a fresh and familiar, however I would definitely wash it out.

The Hair Basics:
The hair did measure long compared to what I asked for. Non stretched, it did measure to 22”, stretched, 24-26”. I did weigh the hair and came up with 106 grams for one bundle and 107 for the other. I was worried that one bundle would be way shorted than the other due to how it looked when I compared the two. I later noticed that some of the weft was folded under and I could not see the fullness when just looking at the top.

Result:
I conditioned the hair first. This was to see a real curl pattern. It did need to either be clarified, or it did not like my first conditioner. I could run my fingers through it, however it reminded me of my Wags when I first got the hair and needed to do a thorough follow up. I washed with the Hello Hydration shampoo then followed up the with Pantene for fine hair for about 5 minutes. It worked well. Not too wavy and not too straight. The ends were good. This was a surprise to me, as my Indian hair in the past had ratty ends, including my Wags. Waves looked natural, however were not at the top. Hair is soft with 4 grey hairs overall. Shed 5 hairs while washing. Wefts were average. Not thin or thick. My other Indian Hair had wefts which were thinner, however I have purchased Aliexpress hair which had thicker wefts. These wefts remind me of what I have bought from some of the lesser than average AVs. I would seal this hair anyway.

Pricing:
For the 20", it would have been $60-70 depending on number of bundles ordered. Shipping $35. I plan to put in an order for his very curly. He appears to have two types on his web site. Told him I would review, but be completely honest in my feedback. And no, I am not getting paid. I also did not ask for more free hair. I was just tired of ordering hair from India and getting crap.

Pros:

     Fast shipping
     *Positive communication, however I am not yet a customer so I cannot rate this as such. He did email all throughout the day regardless of what time I sent messages
     Smelled clean
     No nits
     Bundles are longer than promised
     Ends were not ratty
     Low shedding
     Not many grays
     Curled well with a regular cheap iron
     Finding a closure should be easy
     Accepts Paypal
     Weight of bundles were as stated

Cons:

     Hair came in a #1 and the other bundle looked to be a #2.
     Beards were about ½-3/4 inch. Not bad, but not good.
     Wefts were average (you can ask for bulk hair instead).
     His website has a contact page, however you have to almost register with your phone number with full name and phone number in order to get a response. It then sends you an email within their email system. I would suggest using one of the other methods for contact.
     Prices are not listed on his website.
     In order to get the best deal, you would need to buy 20 bundles. He does however sell in smaller amounts.
     Hair is prepackaged at their site. I would say that this would cause issue if you wanted your bundles to match instead of random colors or levels of curly or straight.




When I asked about prices, this is what he sent:

I asked him about an increase in prices over time, and the concern that he has given a message to a members with statements that they can buy from others if they do not like his prices. He explained that his updated his prices July 2013, and a member had an old price list. I expressed that I was concerned that they may go up soon. He stated that he has no plans to increase his prices. Ladies, we all know about the bandwagon effect though.
I again have not worn the hair and have only reviewed the initial product.

*I remember him from february when it was said by many that he had a fluctuating price list lol.
*he used to run ads on bhm under the other name of his company.
*i never heard any complains about quality in the old posts and i remember that the ebay store had mostly good feedback.
*i have never seen the hair in person, never purchased from him.
