I hate when people make post saying look at my new hair, doing a review, etc. But post pics like this.... 




I wanna ask so bad... are you showing off your new hair or your face? 

I wanna see a full picture of your whole head and at least pics of the ends of the hair! Not a overly cropped 2x1 pic of your face lol!!! 

I'm sorry yall I just had to get that off my chest because I get excited when I come on here and see people actually posting pics and sharing and ish like the old days, but sadly I am often disappointed by the cropping. Am I the only one bothered by this?

Yes. Especially reviews on YouTube where the top of their head is cut off. Like what's the point? They usually only show the ends so I'm inclined to believe they're hiding their struggle leave out, the hump on top of their head from bad application or the part that makes it obvious it's a wig/weave

I just assume its suspect blending, or closures gone wrong and I do not trust it!

Me too some hairdresser that does her own sew ins kept sending me these type of pics snatched off at the top and i was dumb and let her do my haircause the bottom down looked laid...Chillle. I had lumps bumps and other disgusting flaws out this world. On top of that she bobby pinned my leave out down to my weave. I was hot.

I'm starting to think that they say they wanna show their hair, but really wanna post pic's of themselves to have people complement them on how they look.

Exactly some people are just fishing for compliments.. and just like some of the others mentioned some people just have jacked up leave out or horrible lace closure application's.

this is why i will never give reviews on hair i purchase anymore. You cannot please everyone. who cares about leave out....all i need t see is the hair and read reviews on it or hear about reviews on the hair itself not anyone leave out.
 
People stop reviewing hair on this board because you all complain to much:)
It sucks because people like me who appreaciate a review end up gambling with my money.

No, you're not.
I'm sure it's to hide horrible blending/closure application.
When we take "regular" pictures, we don't chop the tops of peoples' heads off, so it is definitely some thought put in to it/purposely.
 
Although we all have different hair textures, I think the desire to see the blending is a reasonable expectation. If the hair is hard to blend, I personally would want some tips or other to know that they may have to put some effort into the blending.
 
I simply think "their blending/closure must be atrocious, and they know it.", because to ME, an install pic is the ENTIRE install, not just the middle. lol
 
For all that we could just hold the bundles  of uninstalled hair up to our faces and take pics. LOL

just a reminder. . . for all of yall posting reviews. . . I don't care about your silky body wave ends. . . I care about how well it was blended. We arent in middle school anymore, janky weaves aren't going to get it.

yall are too much lol. I usually know if a particular hair type will blend with my own hair. Maybe thats why i dont care about people's head top.
 
What annoys me though are reviews where people show the package arriving in UPS box, then they show the cute little bag it came in and the thank you purchase note and proceed to read the how to care for instructions.....All i care about is the hair and how it is after at least two weeks of instalation.

Now I agree with this. I don't give a damn if its packaged in weed rolling papers. I just want to know how the hair looks.

....and this is why people don't speak their minds on this forum anymore. I understand the whole if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all mentality. But is it seriously too much to ask of people to post pics of their full head on a HAIR forum when clicking a post that says "Check my new install"? 

I understand that sometimes people may end up with hair that doesn't match their natural texture so they may not wanna show their leave out. Or maybe they haven't perfected their closure yet.  But if that's the case, then don't make a post saying "Check my new install" but only post pics of your face. Instead, just title the post "look at my bundles", post pics of the bundles and keep it moving. Why get us all excited, thinking we are about to see a install when you are only posting pics of your face?

To be honest I don't really care about seeing someones leave out/closure, (unless they are a stylist) I didn't even mention anything about leave out in my original post. I said I at least wanna see the ends of the hair. So because I wanna see the ends of a persons install in a REVIEW on a HAIR forum, I'm complaining? Yea, ok you're right. you certainly can't please everyone! That's why I don't bother trying. Just like you, I genuinely appreciate a review, but a review of some hair... not somebody's face.

I like seeing the leave out because it gives me an idea if the hair requires a massive amount of heat to blend. If the person claims that the weave is natural black and thier natural hair is natural black and it doesn't blend........ Then I know how to order. This is especially helpful for us natural gals. In ADDITION maybe if the person posted the entire install we could help them with wahatever embarrassing issue they got going on up top. The only reason to not show the top is a janky closure, leave out not blended, no edges and you know the rest.
