I've been eyeing that hair too. Roman does a nice light yaki.


We've been exchanging emails....but I'm torn between the light yaki and the course yaki....

I'm thinking if I do the course yaki, I can use my leave out....and if I do the light yaki, i'll need a closure...

I'm concerned the course yaki will not hold a curl....what's a girl to do?!?!?!
 
The coarse yaki doesnt hold a curl unless you curl then put flexirods in it right away.  And the kinks in the strands do not go away when you flat iron.  My flat ironed hair doesn't have those little kinks but it still blends unless you are really close to my head.  Ill see if I have a photo.


THANKS FOR THE PICS!!!Clap

So....I guess the best bet is to get the lite yaki and get a closure...I've never had a closure so I've been running from it for quite some time now...

Yeah the light yaki is your best bet.  I cant do lace closures so Im waiting on a silk closure in a kinky straight.  Hope it doesnt turn out too wiggy looking lol.

Why not lace...I thought the preference was lace over silk as the lace looks more natural....

I cant deal with bleaching knots, adding fabric, grids showing etc.  I sold 2 closures because the I could not bleach the knots right, no matter what I tried.  With the silk closure, I am going to do either a full bang (chinese bang) or a swoop bang so hopefully it wil look natural.

Starflower I think we are 2 of many that have been wondering about that hair! If someone has tried it, they haven't posted it on the internet. I've certainly been looking it up and down.
