I’m wearing this RHO hair for two weeks, I don’t think two weeks are long enough to give a proper review on the hair, I’ll do it 4-6weeks after install.

I just want to leave some recommendations for those considering buying this hair, It’s easy to look at install pictures and think “I want that!”, it happened to me several times Smile

1) A lot of people think that kinky curly weaves are carefree but they're not. You still have to put in some work. They can give you a break from dealing with your own hair but there's still some maintenance involved.

2) I’ve been wearing weaves since 2005, always straight or kinky straight because my hair was relaxed. After transitioning for 2 years I started using kinky curly weaves. I've found that with kinky curly/afro kinky curly hair sometimes it's more work than straight weaves. I usually spend more time detangling the weave than I do my own hair. After 2 or 3 months using the weave it ends up in a bun or ponytail because I don't feel like being bothered.

3) Be prepared to detangle like you would your own natural hair. It may actually be worse since the weave is going to be longer than your own hair. If the hair sheds, it will make the tangling worse because the shed hair will get caught in the bulk of the hair and cause tangles. I do it every night after re-wetting with water/conditioner spritz.

4) Be prepared to cowash or rewet the hair on a regular basis because it will get flat when you sleep on it. You'll need to refresh the curl some type of way. You could also do braid or twist outs to cut down on the need for this.

5) Be prepared to keep the hair moisturised. Depending on the type of hair you buy, it may get dry. Keep it wrapped up at night so your pillowcase doesn't zap it dry. You may have to DC the weave hair on a regular basis to keep it soft. I DC on a weekly basis, on wash day.

6) The wefts are hand tied, not a problem for me, I usually split my weft anyway, but I think this may be an issue for some people.

7) Shipping cost to the US is around $80 (depending on currency rates), again I’m UK based, that’s not an issue. For US ladies out there, you may find similar or even better hair from US based suppliers.

8) My weave regimen is exactly the same I use for my real hair, products are different (Keracare is too expensive to use on the weave).

9) If time to take care of the weave is an issue for you, consider the option of using the hair in a wig/U part wig.

With curly weaves, I find that I can get out of the house quicker, because blending is so easy but there’s some maintenance involved.  

I’m not trying to put people off from buying the RHO hair, as I said, I’m very happy with the hair (so far), I just want those interested to made an informed decision.

(Apologies for the long post, it started as something short with 6 bullet points Embarrassed)

^^ that is so helpful! I found that kc weave is more maintenance than my own hair too but blending makes it worth the while. One thing I am realizing is having kc on a upart seems like more tugging on just one perimeter braid when I detangle vs getting a sew in and having the pulling distributed thought all of my hair when detangling. Does that make sense? My upart kc wig is just killing my perimeter braid with the detangling

Ok here's my first attempt at posting a pictures here. This is my new install of Kinky Curly hair, Ive been stalking all Kinky Curly threads and Youtube videos for the longest. At first I thought I'd go with Onyc then decided kinkycurlyyaki then ultimately decided to go with allaboutmyhair. The hair I think is gorgeous, I sealed it with mods, washed and conditioned before install and waa-laa. Ive spritzed in the morning and by noon it's massive, so I'll look up other ways to tame it.

^That's less coarse and has more defined curls than any other AAMH install I've ever seen.
