I know some ladies fold their wefts to fit in four bundles. Only installing three and saving one is always an option, too. And yes, you can do four bundles with a closure.

Anyone can post recent experiences of vendors with good silk closures and fairly good amount of reviews; I can't trust it without something behind it. All of the reviews I found are two to more years old on bhm. This searching for months on end is frustrating.

If you are ordering on Aliexpress you have to watch the grams, some are selling 50 gram bundles which is only really a half of a bundle. So you might have 4 bundles in but its not really 15oz of hair. Plus if you are wearing over 18" hair, you get less hair anyway so it doesn't matter.

Can someone make a thread for me? Questions like this get lost in threads like these, or I come back and have to wade thru pages to find answers to my question


So I want to try making some wigs (or getting them made) I don't wear wigs regularly but I wanted to start adding them in to help accelerate my hair growth (retaining length). I love virgin Indian remy for my weaves, but no way I'd pay that money just to chop it into the bobs and short do's I want for my wigs. I'm wondering what imitation (i.e. Aliexpress Chinese processed hair, human blends, remi imitators) or BSS brands (bohyme, Bobbi boss, etc) would be good to use for wigs? I'm looking for hair that, if I decided to wear the wig every day, would hold up for 4-6 months. Because it'll be short, I'm hoping to find something around $60-70/pack for 12" or shorter

I've learned a quick way to navigate BHM is to go to google.com..and in the search bar copy/paste this > site:forum.blackhairmedia.com  ...then space and type what ur searching for..here's an example..
 
site:forum.blackhairmedia.com chinese processed hair
 
site:forum.blackhairmedia.com  best bss brands
 
this method has made it where i can find exactly what question i have thats been answered without going through all the pages of a post Embarrassed HTH

Just a word of warning based on personal experience. I'm coming up on my 4 year WeaveAversary.  In this journey, I've had good hair, bad hair, and learned a lot about the do's and donts of caring for a full sew in.  I am NOT by any stretch of the imagination- an expert- but I can tell you what works for me.

I know I have turned to BHCM for suggestions many times (it's why I joined the site) and I have been motivated by this last experience so much as to want to let others know. On December 13, 2013- I had a full install of Soprano brand Brazilian remi- 14 inch-27 and 30.  I did not pay my CELL phone bill today because I had to get that hot mess off my head!!!! In the FOUR years I've been wearing weaves- I have never had one that made me ashamed to go out of the house! I tried to wear a hat at work, and in fact wore a shawl draped over my head claiming to be cold. It mats, it tangles, it sheds like a collie in the desert. I can't explain how horrible this hair is.  I am very easy on hair- simple flat style, straight with a bump curl, and I wrap in satin wrap when I'm home. Cowash once or twice a week and salon once a month for pampering.
 
One week after install- I was at a Christmas/50th Birthday party for my exboyfriend (where you know I had to shine) while talking to my cousin, she pulled me to the bathroom and said she sat and watched my hair GROW puffy and tangle before her eyes. This hair is horrible. If someone offers it to you-RUN! I am now back in my Hollywood Virgin Remy and all is right with the world. As far as BSS hair goes- it is by far the best I've ever had. I can usually wear Hollywood for 3-6 months easy.
 
Thanks for letting me vent, and I hope that my disaster will help keep others from making the same mistake I did.

Short story: I'm having a really hard time finding a weave/weft hair in 613 platinum blonde & dying it myself is not an option. I'm looking for 18-22 inch straight Remi, Light Yaki etc hair that isn't paper thin. Ideally I'd like two packs of hair no more than $350 usd, I'm tired of buying bad BSS hair that sheds like cat hair. Does anyone know a legit brand or website to steer me in the right direction?

Longer additional story: My own hair is platinum blonde almost white. For a while I used Bobbi Boss aka BSS hair that sucks (at least for me). In Bobbi Boss I had 613 Indi Remi hair that matched color/texture wise but sheds & knots up so much it's embarrassing to comb my hair & it's a mini nest in 30 mins of combing after maybe 3 months---I baby my weaves with salon quality products too so doesn't make sense to me. I fell in love with the way Bella Dream Hair looks (just like my own but dream length long) but I've seen so many negative reviews saying don't bother. I bought Foxy Locks in a platinum shade they were great length wise (20 inch) but too fine textured for my hair which knotted & ripped out my own medium length hair so bad I'm growing my length back! :(

My GF uses Bohyme in platinum blonde, it does shed but you can seal the wefts.
