Ugh, sorry to hear that.  I had a weave with KS hair that behaved exactly like that from His & Hers.  I don't know if it was Chinese or Indian, but it acted like poofy Indian.  Fortunately, it didn't tangle, but I couldn't walk anywhere without it poofing up on a weekend trip to LV in August.  I couldn't blame it on humidity.

eta to say there's a post in the forums somewhere that Sexi posted for a bleach bath for particularly troublesome hair.  I'll see if I can find it.

Found it, scroll down a bit for the post. . .

The wig may have some synthetic in it. Give it a good hot oil treatment and comb out well before rinsing or washing.

I have looked around and have found that chinese virgin, completely uncolored hair is black in color, so if I want a medium brown chinese I cant buy a virgin remy chinese unit because it would have to be colored? it would still be cutically aligned (remy) but no longer virgin remy? From what I have found out chinese vrigin, remy hair is bone straight anyway so all I will have to do is get it colored so that is not black/very dark brown?
Not trying to be mean but next time you can post your own question its not kosher to high jack a post [ when you ask a question in another person post ]then others start to comment and the original post or question get lost or not answered when others start to answer your questionTongue

Excuse me but there have been a number of times when me an other people have posted on here and have been told not to post our question because its a 'repeat' of other similar questions or have been told just to go and research the forums to get our answers instead of asking our questions even when it's not really possible to ind out the information we need. So I thought it would be ok to find a thread that's similar and ask a question in it. Some people on here.

Sounds like the hair is not cuticle aligned.  Bleach bath should help.  If not, here is a tip that I have used to get through a bad patch:
 
At the nape, cut off about an inch of the hair to the lace.
Sew on 2 tracks of VIRGIN hair of approx. the same length.
 
This will keep the non-cuticle hair from rubbing against the body/clothing and you won't have to comb out the tangles every 5 minutes.
 
The other solutions may work also, but in the long run, I just don't deal with all that.
 
Also, the John Korea hair coat works magic, but is very expensive!

Sounds like you got something that wasn't cuticle aligned. :-/

I have chinese KS that I've had for years and getting poofy during humidity is one thing, but tangling is a whole other story. As others have said, try a bleach bath and hopefully that will help it.

Just an update.. I bought the cowboy magic.. It worked for a good day and 1/2 with flat ironing. but if I dont flat iron it - she becomes the crazy again by the evening. This will always be my problem child! I feel like literally beating the thing- lol!
I will try one more bleach bath.. seriously.. im so mad at this point. I did purchase from a chinese vendor- whom i sent the request for thier advertised price for chinese remy lace front processed to kinky straight. I do believe that this hair is indian hair and horse hair- its gotta be.. THis is worse than any indian hair i have ever purchased...

Hey Lwhite!
 
Yep, it can be used on dogs. If you go to their main website, Cowboymagic.com or something like that, they tell you what products to use and give you grooming tips and all.
Happy grooming!!!LOL
