if the hair is 4oz for one bundle, 2pc is enough, if it is 100g , you will need 3 pc

It depends on what kind of hair it is, Indian hair doesn't like oily products. Try a good moisturizing conditioner, I will say that bleaching will only make the hair worse so really condition it.

Maybe after bleaching put the hair in a ziplock bag with the conditioner and microwave it for 30 seconds,

Super silly question, but I'm in a bit of panic mode, lol. I bought 3 bundles of "Virgin" brazilian body wave hair from AE. Got in the mail yesterday, washed it and deep conditioned it. Now i have it hanging on hangers to dry. My question is: the hair looks sooooo thin. Is that what virgin hair looks like wet. The three bundles together look like it would cover a 1/4 of my head? This is my first time ever dealing with virgin hair so I don't know what to expect. When I got the bundles, they looked like 3.5 oz, the standard. But now that it's wet and drying, it looks like I have no hair at all. (The bundles I purchased were 16, 18,20 inch)

Thanks in advance for any replies. 

**I will be giving a full detail on my experience with Virgin hair purchasing and AliExpress. I have some things to get off my chest surrounding this.***

Aliexpress is really a hit or miss. I'm assuming that the bundles are not 3.5oz as advertised...probably came with those thick rubber bands. Anywho, when you opened the bundles, did you see any section that has short pieces throughout the wefts?

My second question. I know there are TONS of info on sealing wefts. I saw videos and brand recommendations. My question is does the sealant ever cause any scalp irritation? I am going to visit my local craft store and see if I can find the Aleene or the Ditz brands and give it a try. Based on all the videos that I saw, I couldn't figure out if there was one brand better than the other, so I was just curious what the most highly recommended one is lately? TIA

Yup, it has SUPER thick rubber bands...and the wefts did have short pieces. ( I will be covering that issue in my review when I'm ready because I got a couple words to exchange with AE) But I'll deal with that in another post. (PrincessGrace, that thread will be for you girlie. I read your advice thread a couple days too late, but your were 100% right)

Here's my thing, before washing the hair, it was decent full 3 bundles of hair. My question, is once it's air dried, is it gonna go back to that fullness. Because I let it dry overnight, woke up this morning and still saw a meager three batches of hair, lollll. My install isn't until Friday, so I know it will have plenty of time to dry but you can imagine how nervous I feel looking at my hair bundles go from full to thin after washing and DC it.

Those super thick rubber bands add on weight (CVs think they slick with that mess) coupled with the fact, there are short hairs...the hair will tangle....the hair maybe poor quality. You can seal to help prevent/ reduce shedding.
