Ok so I placed an order on Friday from Aliexpress and I received it Tuesday. Here are the specs: Peruvian Kinky Curly in 14, 16, 18 but after washing it almost looks more like a deep curl. All bundles are extremely soft and true to length. The 16 seems to be curled slightly tighter than the other two but it's no big deal. The only con so far is the hair had a strong smell, not really a corn chip smell's a smell that's hard to describe lol. Anywho, here are some of the pics:
All 3
The ends of each
Close up of the curls
This is the shedding prior to washing
During the wash I had about the same amount of shedding, maybe a little more. I think the 16 was dyed because the water did not wash out clear. Here is the hair hanging up, almost dry and brushed out just a little
I soaked the hair in fabric softener to try to get rid of the smell and it worked pretty well. Here is the final product
This is my second go with KC hair. The first time I got it from" rel="nofollow - I had heard good things about it from a couple members on this board but I did not have a good experience. I asked for the highest quality hair and it was nice at first but turned out to be awful! It tangled like nobody's business and when I tried to wash it while it was installed and it matted up Angry I only got to wear it for a month before I got to throw it away. This hair came from a different vendor. Once I install it and wear it to give a real review I will disclose the vendor. So far I love this hair and I hope I have a better experience this time around.

These Kind of curls scare me (the possibility of matting), but very pretty. Looking forward to your review.

Sorry I'm just getting back for an update. I have had very minimal tangling with the hair. I have had shedding but it could have possibly been avoided if I had sealed the wefts but hey, I was lazy lol. I have had a lot of compliments. The only issue for me is making my blending as close to flawless as possible. I think I have found a pretty good way. I used the small orange rollers (the kind with the rubber string that attaches to the end) on my leave out overnight. When I take the rollers out in the morning I put some Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie on my curls and then twist it around small sections of the weave. I don't have any pics since I've somewhat mastered the blending but I went to the hair store the other day to buy some eye lash glue and the lady in line behind me just KNEW it was all my hair. And I didn't tell her any different either LOL I only have a few pictures:

These two are from right after I got it done

One of my first attempts at blending. Not perfect but it's pretty decent I think

In this pic I did not roll my leave out the night before...oops...but it was still ok believe it or not, despite how it looks in the pic

As far as care for the hair, I usually just cowash it as needed. Every morning I spray the hair with a water/leave-in conditioner/olive oil/argon oil mix then put just a little Curl Enhancing Smoothie on it. So far I really like it though.
