Virgin hair on a budget - sounds too good to be true, right?
I'm "new" on BHM, but this is my second post since I joined early last year. I've snooped around the forum a bit though and I noticed that many women were looking for quality hair at an affordable (not CHEAP!) price. I happen to be one of those people: I'm 17 so I don't have much. My hustle is braiding hair, but I try to save because I have so many expenses this senior year. I've been getting really excited for my senior pictures and prom, and I wanted to find the perfect hair for both!
I've only been wearing weaves for a year, but when I first started wearing them I took the cheap route- AliExpress. Now, not all vendors are terrible on AE, but I dealt with one too many and had a terrible experience.
However, my younger sister happened to come across Queen Virgin Remy Hair based in Atlanta. She initially placed and order for 2 bundles: 1 12" and 1 14", both straight Brazilian (200 g), totaling to $100. But it seemed that they got her order wrong as she got one 14" and one 16", both clearly wavy textured. She wore it for a month and a half and experienced minimum shedding with no tangling or matting. I reused the hair a few months later. What I didn't like about it was that it looked very frizzy after air drying, but it straightened well and reverted well. I got it to blend well with my 4c hair. Overall, I had a good experience with the hair.
Lol, to make a long story short, I would recommend Queen Virgin Remy if you're on a budget.
I'm also looking to try Amizade Hair Company (an AV).
I also sent an inquiry to Love Hair (UK based I think?) for straight yaky lengths 14" 16" 18" and 20" with the prices being $60, $65, $70, and $75 respectively, plus $65 for shipping to US. I may try them out in the future.
Hopefully if I get a chance I'll add pictures soon.
Anyways, that's just my 2 cents. I am by no means a professional, but I just thought I'd share a little info and my experiences
