Hello ladies, I have been lurking here for almost a year now, and I thought I would share my experience with a new CV that I found after much research, I was really nervous to take the dive but I finally did and I am SO glad I did. They are a new company and I have only had the hair in my head for a week but this hair is soo so beautiful! I ordered from aliexpress but that hair...
it never looked or felt as good as this hair does.
Specs of the hair
1 bundle 22"
1 bundle 20" (really like 21.5 inches)
1 bundle 18"
Steam Process to a Wave
and a 16" Closure "Brazilian" from a different vendor.
I wish I would have taken pictures from when I took it right out of the package, but it just slipped my mind since this hair is the bomb.com. One thing I really like about Virgin Filipino is the hair is a lot thicker than the virgin Indian hair I was using. I took some of my left over Virgin Indian and my Virgin Filipino hair and trust me there is hardly any comparison. This hair is thick all the way to the ends, and I did not have to trim the hair there were very very little split ends.
Here is some pictures of the hair
As you all can see I did bleach and color this hair. I did not bleach the whole bundle just pieces of the bundle so some strands would be lighter than the other. I did a deep condition then let it air dry and this is how the hair looks with no products in it at all. If you ladies are interested in how I got this color just let me know and I will show you all what I used and how I did it. Oh and when I washed it before bleaching the hair did not run black.
This is what the closure looks like, the closure is fine but when I ordered it they said that it was already bleached, and it was not. I tried to bleach the knots and I got nervous and didn't leave it on long enough lol. So that didn't really work out but, hey. When I reinstall in the beginning of March I think I will not be using the closure. Just becasue I like being able to manipulate it more in the front but the closure isn't bad. I am glad I tried it
Here's the closure next to the bundles.

But this hair is really not big on maintenance, I did have a lazy weekend and kept it up in a bun with out really brushing it, when I took it down I thought I was going to be in trouble, but I wasn't a little detangler
spray and a brush and I was good to go. I do not really put any product in it other than detangler
spray. The last hair I has would crawl on the back of my neck, and become a big nappy mess. But so far so good with this hair it doesn't really tangle on the back of my head at all. I am always running my fingers through it and I don't really get any tangles, and shedding is pretty low. I did not seal my wefts. I will get a strand here and there but not clumps or anything like that. My old hair would come out like a dying dog, and I would never put my fingers through it in public lol
! As you guys can tell my last weave experience was horrible
. But anyway I have not straightened it yet, but I will be doing that this week and I will tell you guys how it does straight, and if it waves back up the same way.
come back to talk about the closure with some pictures. I just have to get the better pictures off of my phone so. The only thing I really didn't like is the fact I bought it because it said bleached knots, and of course they weren't
. But other than that the hair was soft but did run black when I washed it. It doesn't tangle how ever so that's good.
But anything else you ladies want to know, just post here! I will be posting pictures of the install asap, I'll take some pictures tonight and upload them probably today or tomorrow. So yeah :) I hope this help someone? I will let you all know who the vendor is once I take this hair down and reinstall at the end of this month, just to make sure this hair still is holding up as good as it is now. I don't want to tell you guys to get some booboo hair lol.
