Hey guys, I hope everyone is doing okay at the moment, and happy new month of FEBRUARY! MONTH of LOVE! Unfortunately this time, I will be talking about something I am hating at the moment! Anyway as promised, I am bringing you an update (3 weeks) on the ALIEXPRESS QUEEN LOVE HAIR I have installed. Get ready! You ready? You can check out the link to the initial review here
The hair is HORRIBLE. And please do not take my word for it, I will provide proof!. The shedding on this hair is crazy! And even though I sealed my wefts, not only does the hair shed every time I brush it, but also when I wash it! The hair is pretty much everywhere! On my jacket, scarf, clothes. Everywhere! And I had to cut the ends off because they were DEAD.
Tangling- the hair mattes up and tangles so easily. Especially in the back. The hair does not hold a curl at all. ( it doesn’t matter what technique you use to curl this hair because trust me I have tried a few! E.g. holding the curl to let it cool down before you release it, hair spraying before or after curling etc) the hair looks nice in the first 45- 1.30 hour of curling then the curls fall
Also, in terms of waving back after washing, we all know how its supposed to be right? Well see the pictures for yourself, in the picture, I DID NOT blow dry the hair, I allowed it to air dry.
Final thoughts: I do not recommend this hair or vendor at all. I realised at first, when they see you’re interested in their product, they are really nice and helpful but when I started to complain they accused me of not taking proper care of the hair. But they gave me advice on what to do to the hair. Then they tried to get me to remove my comments on the hair on MY blog because it may hurt their company image. Buying hair off aliexpress will always come with a risk, so maybe I got a bad batch of hair, but this risk also comes with any vendor and any hair, but just make sure you weigh up the pros and cons of the purchase before you make your decision. Honestly the only thing I like about this hair is the closure, the density is perfect and the parting space is amazing ( it maybe a 5×5)!
Anyway I was told the hair will last 4 to 5 months, but after 3 weeks of excessive shedding, tangling and the hair just does not look nice I am laying it down. I purchased some new hair from another vendor: RHOVIRGIN HAIR and I have that installed at the moment and I am loving it! I will be bringing you an initial review soon!
