I've recently purchased some chinese kinky straight hair and it has a little too much luster for me. Does anyone have any tricks or steps to reduce the luster. The only thing that I was able to find in the search is soaking the hair in baking soda. Someone posted that it didnt work for them so I am hoping that someone will have some sure shot methods.

Have you tried washing the hair first to see if it would remove some the luster.

Try to clarify the hair with baking soda or some other clarifying shampoo.  Also, using a developer in your shampoo will open the cuticles and may reduce the luster.  I did this for my natural hair and it looks ashy.

^^^I was going to suggest a clarifying shampoo as well. I've used baby powder on my half-wigs to take away some of the shine, maybe that will help also.

Just be careful trying to remove the luster too rigorously. Each and every treatment (vinegar, clarifying poo, baking soda) damages the hair a little more. I would just wear the hair and let the luster wear off on its own.
