As I exhale, where do I even begin.....Cry
 
No Matter what Aliexpress, Alibababa or your Fav YT Guru says they are NOT running around scalping Brazilian women to sell us hair. Its just not happening . It is BRAZILIAN TEXTURE hair, and it is 9 times out of 10 not VIRGIN. I mean seriously 100% VIRGIN BRAZILAIN BODY WAVEConfusedConfused. Virgin is hair is its natural state, not body waved, not kinked, not yaki but the way it left the donors head and that includes steam processing.
 
You will NOT get quality hair for $125 for 3 bundles of hair. Now everyone has their own ideas of quality. Some people feel if they get 1 install and it doesnt dreadlock for the 2 months they wore it then thats a bargain, if so carry on and do what you do. In the long run you are not really saving $$$ if you are buying hair every other month. (I still have hair from 2008)..
 
The Lazy weavewoman works the hardest, yeah you can piggyback off some other BHM members last purchase but do your own research.  So  you won't spend the next month after your purchase looking for threads on how to untangle some wild boar weave.  If you dont believe me Google Roman weave.Cry
 
Do I even need to address hair that smells like Corn Chips??????
 
Just say no to Instagram hair companies.... If they shut down their account tomorrow then what? I can go get one of those CC swipers on my HTC phone to get your coins doesnt mean Im a freakin legit bidness. With a good flatiron I can make even wildabeast hair look cute in a selfie, that dont mean diddly.
 
I know its sad but in most cases you now have to research the poster asking questions about hair comapanies. Yeah they have 56 posts but if you look at those posts it involves comments like "cute, nice install and other BS posts".  They are just trying to get free advertisement for their website on the under.
 
If it sounds to good to be true it usually is. Dont let desperation be your weave downfall. The horror stories usually end with comments like I was in a rush, it was a good deal, someone on YT said.
 
You have to be honest with yourself, only you know your hair situation. If Lisa on YT bought some hair and she has fine hair and didnt use a closure her hair matches Virgin Indian wavy hair, YOU on the other hand has 4B grade you lil momma need a closure. Do not think some Edge control is gonna rectify all that is wrong mmkay.
 
 
I hope this helps at least one Newbie, Lawd talk of hair gel on installs, pics of weave delivered in a food box, and other posts in the Newbie section prompted this posts. Also the weave disasters at the mall yesterday broke my heart.

ClapWow, thank you sooooo much for this helpful post. Unfortunately I read your post too late because I took the plunge last week and bought my first ever order of "virgin" hair. Since I'm new to this whole virgin hair thing, I went with AliExpress. Now after reading your post, you know I'm gonna give my hair the side eye when it comes in the mail. LOL But thanks for the info anyways PG,it will help me with future purchases. :) That's the kind of stuff we need around here! I'm taking notes girl.

They read they just have their weave blinders on and see what they wanna see. Its a poster sitting right now who read the post and thought" who dis heffa think she is" Well Im just a poster with yummy soft loose Malaysian kinky curls in my head who's hair doesn't reek of corn ships, whos hair didn't come in a Folgers coffee box, who doesn't have a cobra crawling up her neck disguised as weave trying to find some silicon mix, a paddle brush and the best detangler to unmangle some wildabeast hair is all.
