I will try to be as detailed as possible!!!
Vendor: International Hair Co. Store No 710432 
Specs: Brazilian Deep Wave 16,18,20
This hair arrived damp with a slight smell to it. The 20 inch bundle seems true to length, but the 16 and 18 inch bundles are really short. The ends on 16 inch bundle are TERRIBLE and very dry. No tangles but plenty of shedding not too excessive. I dislike how the curl pattern starts a few inches down. Idk how to explain it but the hair starts straight for an inch or two then wave up. I don't like the way that looks.  I colored the 18 and 20 inch bundles with L'Oreal Excellence HiColor Intense Red. This hair takes color well. I wash the hair using Herbal Essence Twisted Waves and Curls and Tresseme Flawless Curls and deep conditioned with ION (its in a small packet sold at Sally's and I LOVE it).

I see what you mean about the curl pattern starting a little further down the wefts. I've been on this vendor's site on and off for the past few weeks, but the hair looked too shiny from their pictures. How does it look in person? Any coarseness to it?

The hair is defiantly not shiny and the 16 inch bundle is the coarsest.  This is exactly what I ordered - http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/AAAA-grade-human-remy-brazilian-virgin-deep-wave-QUEEN-DEEP-CURLY-HAIR-3pcs-lot-mix-length/710432_585816463.html" rel="nofollow - http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/AAAA-grade-human-remy-brazilian-virgin-deep-wave-QUEEN-DEEP-CURLY-HAIR-3pcs-lot-mix-length/710432_585816463.html . What I received was nothing like the picture but then again I did buy the hair when it was 10 percent off for black friday. I wouldn't risk ordering from this vendor again.

You did a beautiful job with the hair, but it seems to expensive for an unknown with questionable quality. However with 10% off, hopefully it was worth the risk of trying a new vendor.
Thanks for sharing.

In my opinion, this hair is not the worst quality I purchased on Aliexpress. My Anson malaysian body wave hair I purchased was worse. I only paid 142 plus free shipping so I knew the quality would be questionable. After I soaked all bundles overnight with deep conditioner I am much more pleased with the hair, it just needed some moisture. Now, the Karida hair right away seemed like a little better quality but I can't speak on it because I haven't washed it yet. Thanks a lot for reading!

I wish I'd been able to try them but there service was bad to me. I was doing a group order because you know you get way better pricing with your friends and with tax checks coming in, everybody had their money. Me and the other person on there page, his name is John, but I honestly think its still Ashley, they quoted me a price, told me to put something in the cart and they adjusted the price. 

Now we went back and forth about how to pay. He wanted me to pay it all by western union outside of aliexpress. I refused to do that because I've been burned on aliexpress with that before. Another vendor I used, would give me a really good rate wholesale, but then turn right around and tell me they had to jack up the price 5% to compensate for the 5% they were charged by aliexpress. I did a few orders with them and it was cool, then my last big order took me forever to get it, the quality was not the same,  they hair had a "cream" on it she called it and I ended up having to wash a buttload of hair. But I digress. So "John" wanted me to pay outside of aliexpress and I was like no, I'll just pay the 5% so I have some type of protection. He was like, well pay half western union, half aliexpress. ??? What are you talking about and why sell on aliexpress if you don't want people to pay by aliexpress. 

This company, I'm sitting there sleepy as all get out, and and hour later he finally responds and said "Sorry, my manager said we can't offer that price". So I say ok whats the price. Do you know those jokers just stopped responding to me period. Like nothing. I reached out to "John" and "Ashley" nobody responded. To humor them, I kept asking what it the pricing, how can i ordered. Been 3 weeks, nor response. So I'm leery of dealing with any vendor that would behave like that. Super weird.

Side note, aliexpress said to report vendors that do that try to charge you more for that. On Alibaba, when your buying wholesale its acceptable, but vendors on aliexpress aren't allowed to add that in or ask you to pay off site. Aliexpress wants their money too.
