I paid my stylist $120.
I ended up finding the Janet Collection Yaki perm at my local BSS and it felt like my texture. I'm just regretting using 2 packs.
EVERYONE recommends 2 packs but this hair is so thick I don't see how 1 pack won't work. I have maybe 8 inches length wise of this hair left in the pack.
It does look like mine but it's so freaking bushy I hate it. It tangles back and forth in the same spot in the back. I think it's because it's too much hair. One pack looked thick enough but I'm told I have a big head
so I needed 2 packs. But still. I'm planning on having it at least 6 weeks just to get my money's worth. But it's got to go. I wear it in a ponytail to work but I honestly don't like wearing it down. It's too much hair. It is pretty but I'd love to wear it down but unless I have like 10 bobby pins so it's out of my face covering one eye and where I can actually see my ears and earrings it's annoying so I just wear a ponytail. Even at home.
Plus it's so thick it annoys me that it's not easy to tuck it behind my ears. It's that thick to where it pushes my ears out then comes from behind them because it's so thick. But I got a full sew in but I don't like hair in my face and it's so Aaliyah all in my face unless I bobby pin it down and back. I just need this bob to grow out so I can have shoulder length hair again.
I've had people recently tell me to try Brazilian hair because they're heard it's good. But the thing is I have NO patience to buy hair, wait however long for it to come from India/China/wherever overseas then get it, don't like it then return it.
I'm searching now for places in Houston that sell legit hair to see if I can come in and actually touch the hair. I refuse to buy this expensive hair with no touch. Everything looks great on pictures and I'm scared I'll end up with ridiculously shiny hair. I'm medium brown but I definitely can't play the "Oh I'm mixed so my hair is really this shiny" not happening.
I'm still weary of all this Remy non-black people virgin hair unless I can fly to China and touch it then buy it or something. Because that's too much of a hassle all that shipping and returning.
I don't know what hair to buy but I just want something flowing that looks like a black person's hair and it's so super shiny but no hair is free from tangles, looks just right, etc unless it's grown directly from my own head.
