My sister just got a bundle of K2K this week. It's def darker than the HC that she usually installs. She needs to lighten it from  1B to a 4. I've easily and successfully lightened my Wags NC with straight peroxide with absolutely no issues. She tried to lighten a test strand with straight peroxide and it didn't lighten.

Really? It could be because it needs longer processing time or a lighter kit... but Idk, I don't know much about using peroxide to lighten things... I've only ever used bleach since I only like unnatural colors (blues, purples, etc.). 

Hopefully it will take w/ bleach. I haven't ordered from K2K yet, though, because they seem to be dead. I see no activity on their twitter or instagram and I've emailed them, but first I used their little form, and still no response. I'm just very nervous to order from them, even though I need this hair asap. When did your sister place and order and what was the day it arrived?

I need my hair before Oct. 18th for an event...

ETA:They finally got back to me (She's really nice! I guess I was just somewhat paranoid) & I ended up purchasing from them. I really hope the hair lasts! I will probably be using them as clip in hair extensions.

I received the hair today. She gave me two day shipping for free which was really nice of her. The hair in the Afro Kinky which is in the clearance.

My pictures came out horrible... I don't know how you guys get such good pictures of hair...
Anyway, here's a few. I can't wait to bleach/color it and install it.

W/O Flash:


W/ Flash:


I flipped it upside down, the ends are puffy:

(Omg don't mind my bed!)


The wefts look pretty good to me:
(didn't notice any beards)

The hair was soft, but to me felt a bit unnatural, but that's probably because of the process to get it to this point.

It also had a different smell. It wasn't unpleasant and it didn't smell like BSS or Aliexpress hair. It wasn't strong either. But she also washes the hair so it could be the shampoo she uses. 

It also seemed true to length. I did not take the tie off to measure it properly because I wouldn't have been able to put it back as tightly and I needed it to fit back into that tiny box it came it. 

W/ the band on it measured 14 inches and the hair is supposed to be 16 so I believe w/ the band of it would be able to measure exactly 16. 

Overall the hair doesn't seem overly processed for the pattern, so I'm hoping that bleaching it won't mess it up.

Sorry, this is such a horrible initial review... I've never reviewed hair before.

She probably needs bleaching powder.  I've had no issues using BW bleaching powder mixed with 30 volume developer.

so far this was the best kinky curly that I've had order from different vendors for each install noticed that the longer kinky hair doesn't tangle as bad as the shorter hair.

Not that anyone cares, but I bleached the hair. It started to bleach really quick, which is different than highly processed hair, so I know this is some good quality hair. During shampooing I lost a few strands. The hairs texture seemed to loosen, idk if it was because it was wet or because of the bleach. I also left the bleach on for an hour. Deep Conditioned for an hour and then applied the hair dye... this is the photo of the hair soaked in dye:
