Hey guys, it’s been forever! Hope everyone is doing fine and getting ready for the holidays! For my part I cannot wait to get back to the UK and see family and friends. Spain is going well but home is back in the UK!
Anyway it’s been such a while I updated my blog so I decided to do a final hair review on my virtue glamor tresses before I lay them to rest LOL. #RIP. I have had this for 8 months now (April to December) so I thought it was time to let it rest for a while. Mind you I will be wearing it for 2-3more weeks after this but still; I pretty much know the hair inside out.
Before you read this, you can check out the journey I have had with this hair by checking out this links. (Survival series http://wp.me/p1uQOd-aZ, 3 months http://wp.me/p1uQOd-dE , ombre hair http://wp.me/p1uQOd-e1, 5 months http://wp.me/p1uQOd-gD, colour change http://wp.me/p1uQOd-gG)
Ok so 8 months what do I think? I paid roughly £250 if not £270 for this hair. For lengths 22,20,18,12 and a 10 closure of the Peruvian deep wave.
Honestly I love this hair! Although around the 6-7 month milestone, it started to shed a lot more (mostly from the longer lengths) I still experience minimal tangling and the hair is still full (obviously not as full as before but still full for my liking) With the shedding, when I wash the hair, brush or comb I get a few strands out (one of the reasons why I am putting it to rest although I think if I sealed my wefts now it wouldn’t be a problem anymore). And when I run my hand through the hair as well. (I would recommend sealing your wefts when you first get any type of hair or seal it after a while of wearing it)
I did find that after washing and deep conditioning the hair, shedding reduces a lot! And beginningers mistake I did cut my wefts, well from the 22 inch and that’s where the most of the shedding is from.
And that’s the only problem I have with this hair now! It still curls beautifully and I recently started to wear it straight (I don’t know why I didn’t wear straight hair before!!) and it’s so nice straight! And stays straight for a while and waves back up again in contact with water!
It picks up colour very good! I tried to dye it red few weeks ago after dying it ebony black( yh it doesn’t make sense!) and it still did pick up a bit of red( lol I’m talking you can see it in sunshine hahaha)
A few pictures for comparison
None to minimal tangles
Ends still look good
Holds a curl nicely
Still had its volume and bounce to it
I have dyed this hair about 5times, it’s been to 2 different continents and 4 different countries (hahahahahaahah) installed it 4 times. Hair dyes I used (brands because I can’t remember the extract shades)
Dark and lovely
Garnier color sensation
LLON QUE RAS (Spanish brand)
In short would I recommend this vendor? Yes! And currently they have some deals/offers going on, check her out on Instagram
Communication was ok with her. I spoke to her on what’s app when ordering and went on her Facebook page to choose my texture. Shipping and delivery was ok as well. I think it was a week (I think )
