Just wanted to share with you guys something I think might be helpful about cuticle aligned hair.
I noticed one way to tell for sure if the hair is not cuticle aligned hair. I've had it happened three times so far. The first time was my first purchase when I got the order (custom order) I noticed after looking at the hair that at the tips there were these tiny little bulbs on the ends of the strands that when I pinched my fingers and ran it along the hair I could feel it also. I had waited so long though I decided to keep it and worst mistake ever it tangled matted like crazy. I ordered from an eBay seller claiming to sell me virgin hair and I knew immediately even though it looked beautiful it had the tell tale bulbs so I returned it immediately even though the seller claimed it was impossible since the hair is cut and the bulbs not there so it must of been fallen hair from brushes etc. Now after feeling comfortable with the vendor I ordered from 3 times I opened it and there it was again : ( I ordered virgin the other times but got indian remy this time because virgin indian stock wasn't available. I asked the man if it was cuticle aligned he said yes but I noticed in the description it did not specify cuticle in same direction on indian remy.... so well anyways it chinese new year so I have to wait but here's the fotki link http://public.fotki.com/mariabell07/non-cuticle-aligned-hair/
