Sorry in advance for the long post…
I am currently transitioning (my perimeter). The middle of
hair has not been relaxed in years and I had only been relaxing a small portion
of my perimeter to blend with KS textures. I don’t get into hair “types” per se
but if I had to classify myself I would be a 4b/4c, not too thick and not too
thin with a low luster. I have
been eager to change my look to KC but had been on the fence because I wasn’t
sure if it would fit my face. I had been going back and forth with the
decision and I also decided to stop relaxing.
Anyway when I saw the Ultimate KC thread I instantly fell in
love and made the decision to do it. So I began researching and combing through
hair forums, googling images, youtube etc. etc. for a KC company, texture, type of curl
I thought that would fit my face and be closest to my natural texture. Well long story short I fell in love
with KCY coarse yaki I couldn’t resist anymore broke down and purchased the 12”
and 14” with the closure during the Memorial Day sale. I received the hair the
1st week of June BUT before back in April when I was
still leaning towards KC I was leaning towards the investment into ONYC
Mongolian KC but I couldn’t figure out what texture would match best and bought
the samples of the 3b-3c and the 3b-4a.
KCY hair is smooth, thick, very soft, sleek-looking
with a medium luster
ONYC 3b-3c is smooth and soft with a medium luster
3b-4a is definitely drier yet soft, coarse with a low luster.
Holding the KCY
and the ONYC 3b-4a up to my perimeter new growth the ONYC is closest actually an EXACT match
to my natural texture. Used my
edgestick then put KCY next to my hair and it helps but “I” can still
see the slight difference in luster/texture OR maybe I’m just being a bit too much LOL.
I have to contact KCY regarding the unraveling of the weft
on the 14”. I literally just noticed it on Friday. I had been so busy that when
I originally received it I unpackaged it look at it real quick ran my fingers
through it and put it away because I didn't have all the items to start making a wig.
Anyway hope this post helps someone here are pics
