Hey everyone,  So I just took out my kinky curly install. I wanted a really full install so I ended up mixing two types of hair. I had the a half bundle of 14 in of Kinky Curly Yaki's Afro Kinky Curly that I ordered back in January that I never installed and two 16in. bundles of Kurls2Kinks t2 kinky hair.
 I thought both curl types were pretty, the KCY curl was tighter though. I had the hair installed for 5 weeks. 

What I like about the hair, was that it looked like mine, No one second guessed that this was my hair! People keep asking me "How long did it take for me to grow it?", "How long had I been natural?", etc. The Cons though, towards the end of the install the K2k hair started to mat together. I reached out to the owner who was really sweet and helpful. She recommended Apple Cider Vinegar which helped a bit but there still was some matting. 

Im fairly new to kinky hair ( I big chopped in October) so it maybe there was something I was doing wrong or whatever but I'm officially in love with kinky hair. I am able to reuse the KCY  to another install though the K2K, was going to take way too much effort to revived. 

Anywho, on to the pictures...

Does it mess up your clothes?
You do it on wet or dry hair?


I read that it can but I apply it while my hair is wet and than I put clothes on after it's about half way dry so like 10-15 mins later the hair drys kinda fast and it's never messed my clothes up.

You can apply both wet or dry but wet to me I like better it gives a brighter color.

Hi just wanted to share. I just tried a new vendor on aliexpress. http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/238890313.html. So far I love the hair! I ordered 28 inches of the kinky curly. The hair arrived in less than a week, I think it was 5 days! The hair is soft and is a natural brown black color (1B). Now for the negatives, you must take time to comb it out when you get it because of the way they rodded the hair and it has that funky smell that I have heard so much about from a lot of the vendors on AE. However, I put some of my facial clay mask on it and left it for the day and I also added some tea tree oil and it was fine by the time I got home I then conditioned it with some cheap Salon Selectives and added some Dark and Lovely Au naturale Coil Moisturizing Souffle, motions naturally you define my curls and some Argan oil and left it over night. I washed it out this morning and tadaa


I don't know why the font size changed SORRY!

I will update you once I install next weekend.

Ive been searching for kinky curly hair I could straighten without worrying that the curly wouldnt come back and I think I found a vendor. I'm gonna share the some of the pictures and info with you guys to see what you think:

Indian Kinky Curly

I was told by the vendor that the hair is 
  • 'Grade AAAAA Unprocessed Virgin Indian Hair' and it was '100% raw hair'. 
  • Cut directly from girls in India
  • Full and thick
  • It can last at least 2 years or longer depending on how the customer takes care of it
  • It is not chemically processed in any way
  • It can be dyed and flat ironed and the curl will definitely come back because it is unprocessed.
  • The cuticle is fully aligned

I was a little iffy about it so I spoke with the vendor and explained that I was hesitant because so many vendors label the hair unprocessed when it is. They told me they understand, they often invite potential customers to order samples so the quality will speak for itself. 

I may just take a chance and place an order in a few days because they seem pretty legit. If anyone wants the vendor name just PM me!

Does the hair look processed to you guys?

Hecks yeah that hair is processed for that curl. It look gorgeous though. It look like it will flat iron pretty well. The true test is if it will curl back up. Ain't no Indians or Chinese walking around will curl that tight.

I agree it's processed, why do people lie and say its not. As long as it not processed to the high heaven we're good to go.
