|Tailgating at NC Central's Homecoming|
You may or may not remember but my last professional style was for my birthday last year (November 2012) , when my stylist, Taji, created this amazing soft updo look for my my birthday and UNC Homecoming weekend.
Since then, other than going in for my regular trims, I have been styling my hair. Needless to say, I And my hair was in need for a break. I decided it was time for another sew in.
I definitely wanted a curly look with virgin human hair so it could be reused. I did not want to have to invest a whole lot into the hair. One of my friends told me about buying human hair wholesale and so I checked out dhgate.com. On there I found a store called "wiginchina". I bought from this company for several reasons:
1. They had 641 transactions which meant to me they had been in business for a while.
2. They were categorized as a top merchant on dhgate. This is their highest ranking.
3. They had 94.4% positive rating. I read some of their ratings and they were about the quality of the hair and so I decided to buy.
Order: 100% Brazilian curly virgin hair in lengths, (2) 12", (1) 14", and (2) 16"
Shipping: Quick. I ordered on a Friday and received the hair on the following Wednesday.
Bundles. The bundles were packaged in clear plastic sleeves with the lengths marked & each bundle had a thin mesh netting around it.
Here are pictures of the hair before it had been washed. All I did was run my fingers through the 16' bundle so you could see the difference when the hair had been frizzed out some verses how it comes packaged. You can see here that the hair is a "natural brown" color. You can also see how curly the ends are.
Then I co-washed the hair. I used Tressemme Natural's Conditioner & detangled with a wide tooth comb & hung the hair to dry.

The next two pictures are showing the length of a the 16" bundle. The track was longer on the 12 inch bundles and decreased as the length of the hair increased. You can also see the density of the hair here as well.

My stylist used all 4 bundles of the hair in my sew in, creating a very full install. She left a little bit of my hair out so I could do a center part and an invisible part to the left of my crown in case I wanted to do an natural fall to the right. You can see my center part here. I have 2 strand twisted my leave out in the front. The first picture shows the hair with no styling product. Where I'm pointing on the left shows the side misted with water and styling mousse applied. The 2nd shows it after the whole head had been completed.
