I ordered that hair in the rare curly 5/6 it was a disaster. I spent almost $700 and the hair I got was literally a rats nest. Dry and after I co washed it was wavy at best. I filed a paypal claim and sent the hair back but the woman ijeoma claims she never received the hair so I'm just out all that money. I had pictures but I have a new phone so the pics are gone but I have all our correspondence and she was rude and kept referring me to the care instructions. I'm trying to tell you, don't do it. She sent me a gorgeous video of the hair she was sending when the hair got here it wasn't the same hair. So maybe I just had a bad experience but I wouldn't trust it, especially with all them "pictures" she has up of models wearing her hair especially Vanessa Hudgens. That should have been my red flag there. Oh well, good luck ladies.

Hi, I watched the video and also went to Youtube and also googled - few reviews on the hair...The reviews on this post are opposite so I am confused. Please can you tell me how the second washing went. Is it good hair and can I take the risk. I called the lady and spoke to her and she seemed very nice but then that does not guarantee good quality hair. I have to rely on your experience to guide me as I work through trying to find the right hair. I really appreciate any feedback on this. Thanks very much Laura

So I have taken the plunge and ordered some of this hair from Cambodia - I sincerely hope it works out OK. For clarity sake and to help others who come to this website going forwards, I will write a full review when I get my straight hair and 2 bundles of wavy hair. 
I have found it so difficult to decide on what hair to go with and so I have just had to trust that this works out OK and so I would really like to help others so they do not have to be in the same boat that I was in. I will keep you updated and so wish me luck!!
Laura

I'll post the response I sent to her upon receiving the hair which I still haven't and won't receive a refund for because she claims she didn't get it.

The website I ordered from is http://electcambodianhair.com/?page_id=117" rel="nofollow - - http://electcambodianhair.com/?page_id=117 .


You have to order via email or FB to even get a price list.


The item was significantly not as described due to the fact that the hair I received was not 100% virgin cambodian hair. I received a video of the hair I was supposed to be sent, the hair I received wasn't the same hair in the video. The hair I received was dry and tangled and full of split ends, and no way near curly. After the care instructions I was instructed to follow, the hair was still wavy at best. I immediately contacted the seller and packaged the hair back up to be sent. The hair smells and feels like Ali Express hair. Ali Express is a chinese company that sells processed hair, textured to feel like “brazilian, cambodian, Malaysian ect.” The hair had a processed smell and when washed with neutralizing shampoo, the water didn't run clear, which is an indiction of processed hair. The hair in the video I was sent was brown, which is the color I ordered, the hair I received was a 1b (black) color.


There was a brochure sent with the hair and posted on the website of free gifts you will receive http://electcambodianhair.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/phpG9VR6CAM3.jpg" rel="nofollow - http://electcambodianhair.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/phpG9VR6CAM3.jpg yet I didn't receive any of those.


The website appears to be fraudulent, because of the pictures of Vanessa Hudgens on the website, which I know she didn't endorse and because of the free gifts, which no hair company I've ever know gives away flat irons and curling irons and waving irons ect. However, talking to the owner on fb I was led to believe things that weren't true. She confirmed the hair was 100% virgin unprocessed cambodian, she confirmed the hair was the rare curly.

  • I forgot to ask, what is your return policy?

  • https://www.facebook.com/vanessajhicks" rel="nofollow - - Vanessa Hicks
  • Also, the hair is unprocessed or is the curl pattern processed?
    On gambianbeauty101 she says there aren't any curly bundles that are raw curly
    Also can the wefts be thin? Sorry for all this extra I'm writing 

  • https://www.facebook.com/vanessajhicks" rel="nofollow - - Vanessa Hicks
  • Last time changing, I promise, I just don't want to hair to look oddly proportioned so I'd like a coarse brownish thin wefted 5/6 blend in 12-16-20-24.a

  • Hello: All our “Rare Curly Hairs” are 100% Natural (unprocessed). So, even after installing the hair and you decide to straighten (flat iron) it severally, each time it’s washed, it returns back to it’s original curly pattern. This is simply because the curls are 100% Raw and high quality. The only processed hair we sell is kinky curly(i.e. almost like afro.) While the rest of our hairs (Straight, Wavy, Wavy Curly, Rare curly #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6) are all 100% unprocessed hairs

    You'd like to do review? Are you on youtube too? If "yes". That would be nice. I'll look forward to your video. (We've had several customers who have made purchases; and are so excited about their hairs. But, they feel "shy" to appear on a video. (Rather, they send us beautiful photos of their install) So, if we like your video about our hair, I'll look forward to the future;- for you to also review a different hair pattern of ours' too. At a discounted fair price of course.. This is an offer. Well, that's if you are interested... Not right now,though. but in the nearest future.
    Updated invoice has been sent. Please look in your inbox. " mailto:mrsvanessahicks@gmail.com" rel="nofollow - mrsvanessahicks@gmail.com "
    "Looking forward to serving always!.." THE ELECT CAMBODIAN HAIR Uniquely Cambodian!


I asked about the return policy a few times to get no response about it. Yet I ordered on assurances I received from the seller.

I contacted the seller immediately after I received the defective product.


  • https://www.facebook.com/vanessajhicks" rel="nofollow - Vanessa Hicks
  • The hair that I received doesn't look at all like the hair on the video. The ends were dry and tangly and didn't have much of a curl at all. I was wondering what is your return policy? Thanks.

  • https://www.facebook.com/vanessajhicks" rel="nofollow - - Vanessa Hicks
  • I've followed your hair care directions and co-washed hoping that would improve the hair which it did not. I'd justo like to return it. It was a pleasure doing business with you, shipping and processing were fast, communication was great, I'm just not satisfied with the product. Thanks anyway.


There isn't a return policy on the website so I asked for it and never received one or any indication of one, so I returned the hair, and shipped it back to cambodia. The hair is no longer in my possession. I was very disappointed because I wanted to deal with this company on a long term basis, but their products are not as described and are not cambodian unprocessed hair.On Oct 5, 2013, at 1:13 PM, mailto:service@paypal.com" rel="nofollow - service@paypal.com wrote:

There is a woman in a weave group who had a very unhappy experience with this company so definitely isn't anomaly.

TO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE FOLLOWING THIS THREAD:

I received the hair back in the mail this past Monday.  I said to myself, "I might as well try and make it work since I can't return it." 

So I opened the bundles fully and shampooed and conditioned, I let the conditioner sit for a hour- then after rinsing it out I let scrunched and plopped the hair and let it rest for about a day.

Upon checking on it, I noticed that SOME of the bundles were curly and some were still more of a wave. The 12 and 16 were the most curly and the 20 and 24 had more of a wave.  

So lets re-address the issues in my previous post- once I receive my last bundle I'll do a video review so you ladies can see for yourself but I will post pictures of what I have tomorrow and the various stages that the hair goes through.

1st issue- dryness:
The hair is softer after a co-wash but the ends are still dry.

2nd issue- the curl:
The longer lengths are still more of wave than a curl.

3rd issue- the rudeness:
Looking back at it, she wasn't necessarily being rude but she did keep telling me to follow her care instructions.  NOTE: I've had "virgin" hair before yet with this raw hair that I have I wasn't aware that when it's drying you aren't supposed to touch it or that will mess up the curl pattern?  So this is new to me.  Her care instructions do say to let the hair completely air dry- so that was my screw up I guess.  I just never heard of hair you couldn't touch while it was air-drying or you'd compromised the curl pattern. But as I've stated earlier- after letting the hair dry completely the curls in the first two bundles were apparent.  

4th issue- hair not same as video:
Actually I'm going to try to include the video I was sent of the hair and then once I post my pictures of the hair brushed out-washed/conditioned and wet-air drying- and completely dry-- I'll let you ladies be the judge if it looks the same or not- because to me, it didn't.

-----

My issues with the hair now:

The hair is freaking gorgeous but it tangles and it sheds.  The ends are dry though, like when I wash it it just poofs up instead of the water saturating it, it kind of acts like nappy black hair lol.  (I'm not sure if that's because it sat in a box for 5 months or what that's one of the reasons I ordered another bundle.  I had to literally beg damn near for her to do business with me again- but I was wrong in my assumption that she sent me aliexpress hair so I had to apologize and I wanted to give the company another try because I am so tired of buying processed chinese masquerading as "virgin".)  Back to the tangling and shedding- the ends of the two curly ones tangle the worst- when I do my video I will show you all how my brush gets stuck at the end.  And whenever I brush I get loose strands.  Again I'm not sure if it's because the hair sat in a box for 5 months growing mold- idk, so when I receive my last bundle I will show you all.

I haven't officially ordered the other hair as of yet because I haven't heard back from her confirming my order and I think she went up on her prices but only for me Cry I hope that's not the case though.  I did want to wholesale since the hair in Milwaukee is crap- but I don't know if that's a possibility anymore.   

Anyhow, I've been emailing mods and the admin to remove my comments from this thread so I can post a fresh review but no one is answering so- oh well.

But now to try and post the video- my pictures will be up tomorrow hopefully, if not you can check my instagram for some of the pictures I have on there- @mrsvanessahicks.

I actually just added a few more pics to instagram- and one of the ends- like since I stated- I've never had "raw" hair before so should the ends look like that?


Posted By: Luvmyson2008
Date Posted: Feb 17 2014 at 11:27am
I'm going to attempt to add these pics:

The products I am using:



The longest bundle brushed out:



Close up of the weft:



Texture shot before wash:




The patch of hair that seems to always catch the water and not absorb well on the two shorter bundles



Amount of shedding from first bundle only




On the longer bundles the water didn't gather in one spot



The bundles airdrying and total amount of shedding from all four bundles



Hopefully this works because BHM has been tripping lately when I try and post.  Anyhow tomorrow when the hair is completely dry I'll post more pics and then you can compare to the video if you want.

Posted By: Luvmyson2008
Date Posted: Feb 17 2014 at 12:41pm
That's the exact same thing I said.  So I'm letting it air dry and I'm not going to touch it and then we'll see the outcome.  I guess hen you touch raw hair when it's air drying it interferes with the curl pattern- that's why I sent it back in the first place because it didn't appear to be the same. After my first co-wash and I let it air dry the hair looked similar to the video- so this time I'm not going to touch it until it's completely dry and show the results.

The only I heard close to that was letting curly hair dry without touching or running it through because it makes the hair more frizzy and disturbs the curl,, every time you separate it just gets bigger... but that wasn't for raw hair.. so im not sure how that goes

It still looks more wavy than rare curly but the hair is undeniably gorgeous. The shortest length is the most coarse. Let me know if you have any questions.

So- this morning I finger-combed and made the curls more apparent.  I still can't get them like the video, but they did become more curly than wavy except for the longest bundle which remained mostly wavy.  The hair is gorgeous and I can't wait to get it installed.  I'm waiting on Dionna (SewNatural1) to come to Chicago.  I hope she can make it before I have this baby :)

I too bought some straight hair from Elect Cambodian Hair since 2012.  And have so far installed three times, washed three times and yet it comes back beautiful. ...Since then I have ordered a second time. That was on May; 2014. I ordered me some Curly hairs....The hair is absolutely gorgeous!
For me, this hair is indeed tested and trusted.. It's good quality..

Yes. I have tried them. I bought some Cambodian straight hair from Elect Cambodian Hair. This was since 2012.  And have so far installed three times, washed three times and yet it comes back beautiful. ...Since then I have ordered a second time  from them again.
 Just a couple of months ago. May; 2014. I ordered me some Curly hairs from Elect cambodian hair....
The hair is absolutely gorgeous!
For me, this hair is indeed tested and trusted.. It's good quality.
In this photo, I have left out some of my own hair; to get this right part.




The weather here in the UK is so harsh to my natural hair. So, I usually like to have my weave on; as a protective style. What would I ever do; without my weaves!!



In this photo; my stylist thonged it for me. See those beautiful large loose curls..
