Hey guys! So way back in November I ordered hair from an Indian vendor off of Alibaba. I was super nervous because they had no reviews but I liked the way our conversations went and just decided to do it. I ordered 500 grams of 22" curly hair. I was very specific on what I wanted and I asked for the thickest curliest bundles he had. The total price for the 500 grams plus shipping was 350 & I payed an extra $45 for an international wire transfer fee because I did NOT feel comfortable sending money to a vendor that had absolutely no reviews lol. It took a couple of days for everything to go through but Mr. Kanumury always responded back to me in a timely fashion. I ended up getting the hair a week after it shipped.
Now into the review... When I first got the hair it came like this
You can't see it in the picture but I was pissed because not only were 3 of the 5 bundles completely different colors but they werent the hair patterns I asked for . Instead of sending me the "thickest curliest" bundles like I asked he sent me two curly bundles and three wavy bundles. I decided to use the two curly bundles and installed it about a week after I washed it. I did NOT seal my wefts and the shedding was pretty annoying. I hate shedding (and so does my boyfriend) so I there's a possibility I'm being slightly dramatic
Here are pictures of the curly bundles:
When I first installed the hair it was super pretty and big!
^ Excuse the black & white, I took the picture on Instagram and didn't save the original
This hair is high maintenance and if you go more than 2 days without co washing it ends up looking like this
The only thing that saved me from that is this fabulous moisturizer I bought from lush called r&b!! transformed my hair into this: :)
^ beginning of the day when i applied r&b
^end of the day without re-applying!! as you can see i was super happy lol
Now on to the wavy bundles. I installed the wavy bundles in the middle of December because I was going on vacation to St. Maarten and didn't want to deal with the curly hair. Despite the fact that I didn't ask for this hair I am so happy that I got it! The wavy bundles shed a-lot less than the curly bundles and of course was not even close to being as high maintenance!
^The hair in its natural state
^The hair after way too many morning swims
^ The hair straight :)
And last the hair curled. Sorry for all the boobies :)
My overall rating for the hair: 8/10 -2 for shedding
I would def order again but if I do I'm ordering it bulk!
If you have any questions let me know
