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
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.
