Krs Hair Group: Knappy Knatural Coarse Extentions Review

Happy Thursday beauties!! Today I am so excited to share with you my initial review of Krs Hair Group’s newest texture Knappy Knatural course! I was looking for something new and long to wear in the new year and like I said in the video I was researching and looking for a hair texture similar to my own. You all know I was a big fan of Halley’s curls salon relaxed texture, right?? It had the qualities that I love: thick texture think my own hair, low luster “non wig like appearance”, looked so natural and the price was so affordable!! However, I don’t know what happened to the business of Halley’s curls. Seems like the customer service went downhill and you could not even place an order toward the last few months of 2013. So I am sure like most of you had to move on and try something new too!

I am so glad that Krs Hair Group reached out to me last year because I got a chance to experience something new that works and at the same time received great customer service too!! I was still looking for a similar texture to Halley’s curls and BAM! Krs Hair group surprised me with this new treasure of hair!! What I ordered looks like this:

This is the Knatural Coarse bundle deal in 16/18/20. Each bundle comes with 3.5 ounces of hair! The texture of the hair is thick and yet it is light and soft to the touch! This hair is Virgin Chinese Hair with full cuticle flowing in the same direction. I personally love the rippling of the hair for it reminds me have going to the pool when I was little and my hair would have that appearance when it was wet! I have to say I love the packaging of the hair with the logo of the company verses receiving it in a silk bag. This is definitely a great way to start for branding image!! Now, knowing myself I wanted to try the ombre look on these locks of gorgeousness, so as you can see I decided to purchase 3 boxes of theL’Oreal Paris Feria Wild Ombre Haircolor, Medium to Dark Brown (O60), 1 ea. And yes! It will take the entire process time and the 3 boxes to achieve the look you will see to follow below:

The Final Results:

I love the results in the knatural state and I love it in the flat ironed/curled look too!! This texture did not take too long to straighten and it also curls really easily too!! I love the results of the coloring too!! Believe me I am not a hair stylist by any nature, but I love what I did!! And.. I have received so many positive compliments on this hair!! Yay!! Now.. my natural hair is relaxed so I had to flat iron it in order to match the texture of hair to my relaxed texture. If you are a natural haired diva you will LOVE this texture for it will blend perfectly with your beautiful natural locks!!

You may ask me..Does it, frizz?? Like any hair when the weather is like it is right now, cold & dry, it will frizz or have a little static, but not to the point of severe tangling and matting like other hair textures I have experienced.

Does the hair shed?? Well..If you do not cut the wefts you will be fine! If you decide to cut the wefts I recommend to seal your wefts. Because when cutting the wefts you weaken the hair and make it more likely to shed. So if you follow that advice then you will be in love with you hair. Also regular maintenance will also take care of the hair too!! Now please remember that this is only my initial review for I only have had this hair installed for 4 days! I will come back for another review of how this hair maintains for a month!! Until then.. please enjoy my video review below and don’t for get to rate, comment and subscribe to my channel nhop76!

  • Click here to see my blog post on how I achieved this color.

What I liked about this hair is its ability to go from wearing it straight one day and adding water and curling cream to go wavy the next day. Like I mentioned in my video review this hair is perfect for women that are busy and next hair that is flexible with their lifestyle. It is easy to wash and care for!!

The following are my pros about the hair:

  • No Shedding
  • No Tangling or Matting at all, love it.
  • Easy to care for and maintain over time.
  • This hair goes for straight to wavy with in minutes of adding water and your favorite curl cream.
  • Easy to flat iron.
  • Affordable

My cons for the hair is minimal:

  • Update packaging for the hair
  • Lifting the color of the hair for lighter color process.

Overall, I really LOVE this hair and would purchase it in the future, and I would definitely recommend for you to try this hair for yourself to see how great this hair really is. Now, next…. I would love to try her body straight just to see the differences between the two! If you would like for me to review the other texture please let me know and I will see what I can do for this fall since I am thinking I would like to have long flowing hair again.

OneStyling.com: Crush Flat Iron Review

Today’s post will be all about hair tools since it has been a while since I talked about styling products for the hair! A month ago Onestyling.com sent me their Crush line of hair tools for review consideration such as the Crush 1 inch tourmaline flat iron along with a cute mini tourmaline flat iron.

Crush 1 inch Flat Iron:

 

Information according to Onestyling.com:

  • Wide temperature range (140°F to 450°F) ideal for all hair textures
  • Tourmaline technology provides maximum negative ionic output to lock in moisture and eliminate static and frizz
  • Gentle far infrared heat safely penetrates the hair follicle to minimize heat damage
  • Sleek ergonomic design for easy handling
  • Floating beveled plates allow for optimum styling control
  • Dual voltage makes it ideal for traveling*
  • Professional length swivel cord
  • Available plate sizes: 1″ only
  • Available in:  White/Green, Silver/White, Black/Blue and Raspberry/Silver

 

Crush Mini Flat Iron:

 

Information according to Onestyling.com:

  •  Professional ceramic heater with superior heat recovery and maximum temperature of 410°F
  •  Texture IQ™ system automatically calibrates heater based on hair texture
  •  Tourmaline technology provides maximum negative ionic output to lock in moisture and eliminate static and frizz
  •  Gentle far infrared heat safely penetrates the hair follicle to minimize heat damage
  •  Floating beveled plates allow for optimum styling control
  •  Dual voltage makes it ideal for traveling*
  • Available in: White/Green, Silver/White, Black/Blue and Raspberry/Silver

 

Now my thoughts on both styling tools? Ok. . . Let’s start with the pros and cons of the 1 inch flat iron.

Pros:

  • The flat iron heated up really fast and I need that because I love that snooze button on my alarm clock too much and when I get up late at times I can flat iron my hair in a snap.
  • The cord at the end of this iron swivels which is great! However, I do believe most flat irons has this capability.’
  • The iron is lightweight which means less pressure on my wrist and easy styling too.
  • I love the floating plates on the flat iron.
  • The  variety of heating options.
  • The cord length is perfect. Long enough to style at a distance.
  • Price is realistic at only $80.

Cons:

  • Wish is came with a cooling pad to store the flat iron in after styling with it.

 

Now for the pros and cons of the mini flat iron.

Pros:

  • Small and convenient to carry in your purse for touch ups.
  • Easy to flat iron baby hairs and short hair styles.
  • Floating plates like the big sister iron.
  • Cord length
  • Price is pretty affordable at $30

Cons:

  • Only one heating temperature
  • Cord does not swivel like the big sister iron

Overall, I really enjoyed testing both of these flat irons over the past few months and I truly feel that these flat irons are worth the price that company is selling them for. I also feel that both irons heat evenly and I did not have to worry about the iron over heating my hair and causing damage to them at all. If you are in the market for a new flat iron I would definitely recommend Onestyling.com.

The Original Indian Hair Company: Wavy Indian Hair After 6-8 Weeks

Hello my beauties, this post is for my divas that love to rock hair extensions like me, and you have been dying to know what my thoughts are on the buzz worthy hair extension from The Original Indian Hair Company. Back in September, I installed 2 bundles of the 18″-20″ Indian Wavy hair in Natural Dark brown. ($199 per bundle! Yes, this hair is expensive, but you will find out why it is worth the price later on.) I installed every single weft used since the hair texture is fine to medium. Now if you like to have a fuller/ thicker installation than what I have then I highly recommend purchasing 3 bundles of hair in order to achieve that. However, I was happy with 2 bundles. Initially, when I received the hair it had a curly appearance and smelled to fresh and clean without that chemical processed smell. I contacted the company to see if they recommend to wash it again prior to install and they said it was not needed since they was it 2 twice before it is finally shipped to the consumer. I thought that was great, but you all know me, I washed it anyway with my Oscar Blandi jasmine collection line of hair care products I purchased from Sephora. Now, if you have not have my initial review video of the hair click “here” to watch it on YouTube.

Ok. .  The review after wearing the hair for 8 weeks now I can finally share with you my thoughts. First this first, this hair was very easy to style 3 different ways while wearing it for the entire time span. I was able to wash and let it air dry into messy soft beach waves with little to no product at all. (I wished I took some photos of it) Secondly, this hair was very easy to curl and hold curls too, however I caution you. If you live in a hot, dry or humid climate like I do you will definitely have to use some type of holding spray to elongate the wear of the curls throughout your work day. Without the styling aid your curls will loosen up a bit and will not last all day long. Finally, as for straight styles, this hair flat ironed beautifully as you will see in the video below.

Now, on to hair maintenance. You may be wondering what did I use on my hair and the Indian hair during the 8 weeks, and how often did I wash this hair, right? Well, washing my hair I wash it one to two times a week depending on how active my workouts were or how much styling product I used on the hair on any particular day. Here are some things to consider when it comes to how often you should was your hair and the installed hair.

  • If you are exercising 3 times a week I would wash your hair twice a week due to the fact that natural oils and sweat can weight down your hair and cause it to tangle.
  • If you heat style your hair daily and use lots of hair sprays and gels to hold your style on any given day I would wash it that night. You don’t wait to restyle your hair with all of the product left on it the day before. I feel you are asking for trouble like weighed down styles, tangling and breakage (shedding) due to excessive heat style and old product on it.
  • If you are very kind to your hair and don use excessive amount of product on it or a lot of heat and you down exercise often then once a week is fine.

The products I decided to use on my hair due to the climate and the frizzing I experienced are the Ojon damage reverse line of products you can find at Sephora and Ulta. Now don’t get me wrong the hair was not extremely frizzing, but the climate can increase the frizziness with any hair texture.

I feel these product worked wonderfully with the indian hair and kept it under control. Everytime I washed it with the Ojon it felt wonderful, less frizzy and luster was beautiful. Now you don’t have to use the same things I used on it, but any hair care line that works against frizzing and dryness is a perfect match for this hair. Since this hair is expensive I wanted to use quality products on it.

On to tangling, shedding or matting. If you take care of this hair like I mentioned above you will experience little to no tangling or shedding. While wearing this hair I did experience some shedding and I believe that had to do with me cutting the wefts for this install. However, the shedding was minimal. Tangling, there was very little tangling. The tangling I experience was just like any other hair extension I have worn in the past. When you are moving throughout the day the hair get little tangles, but nothing that my fingers could comb out gently. Matting, none!

Now, would I purchase this hair in the future? Of course I would! I would have to save some $$$, but if I am getting ready for an extra fabulous event and I want nice quality hair I would. Also the hair is worth the price because you can definitely get your wearing’s worth out of this hair. I truly feel that this is one texture you can wearing over and over again. This hair is lightweight, luxurious and fun to wear in many different styles.

The Original Indian Hair Company: Initial Wavy Indian Hair Review

Hey beauties! I know you all have been wondering in my most recent videos what hair I was rocking, right? Well, today I will answer you questions, yayyyy!! Many of you have been messaging me on Youtube or here at beauty chameleon asking me if I have every tried Indian hair and I felt so bad that I could not answer you questions regarding Indian hair. The main reason why is because I have never worn Indian hair before. In the past I have worn Malaysian hair or yaky remi hair extensions. Most of the brands that I have used I have been happy with, but I have always been curious to know how the Indian hair feels and how it maintains over an 8 week period.

So… I have been researching the internet and youtube on Indian hair and have become very impressed with the reviews of The Original Indian Hair Company's Indian hair. Many people were impressed with the texture, the longevity of the hair and the appearance of the hair, so you know after hearing that from many resources I was totally in for experimenting with Indian hear. Shortly after the excitement of wanting to try Indian hair extensions The Original Indian hair company sent me 2 bundles of their beautiful Wavy Indian hair for review consideration which means I can finally let you all know my thoughts on the Indian hair.

Before I talk about any of the hair and my pros & cons let me show what the hair looks like prior to installing:

The hair was shipped beautifully in a box which I was very impressed with. All of the wefts appeard to be sewn in place with impeccable quality and tied down to the box with a hair net protecting the beautiful locks of hair. The hair itself had a low luster to it which is great because my natural hair texture has a low luster without product on it.

The hair I received was the 18-20 inch wavy Indian hair which retails for $199 per bundle and I have two 4oz bundles in order to install a full application of hair. The hair is pretty long and it measured out to be about 22 inches long. So you get a lot of hair ladies! According to the indian hair company their hair is 100% unprocessed virgin remy Indian Hair. They never process or color our hair and They guarantee our hair to be 100% virgin. This makes their hair unmatched in quality. If you are unsure of ordering due to price and what to see what you are in for you can order samples of three textures for only $8.00. I think that is great thing to offer.

In addition to that their  products are not processed or colored, our virgin hair comes only in the natural shades of 1B (Off Black), 2 (Darkest Brown), 3 (Dark Brown) and every color in between. They recommend consulting with a professional stylist when considering coloring the hair. Of course our virgin hair will take and hold permanent, semi-permanent, cellophane, and lift beautifully, just like your own natural hair. I decided that I did not need to color the hair since I do not want to add color to my own natural hair.

 

As you can see by the picture the hair comes in a wavy pattern already! From what I learned the hair is washed twice and air dried before it is shipped to the consumer which is awesome. I have to say the hair smelled so good when I opened the package. It did not have a chemical processed smell to it at all. And, you know I had to do my own wash to it before I installed it and the great thing I notice is that the hair did not bleed any color out at all.  I washed my hair and the hair extension with Oscar Blandi's Jasmine shampoo and conditioner. These products mentioned are my favorites because they work for me, so please feel free to use what works best for you.

After successfully washing and blow drying my hair and they extensions I was ready to install the hair. I decided to braid all of my hair except for the area where there is a part and the areas area my hairline just so I can have a natural appearance without any tracks being exposed.

As you can see the hair take beautiful curls, the luster is low and the texture of the hair is soft to the touch! I like the fact that I can also wear this hair curly or straight. So for you ladies that love to rock the straight styles you will love this texture too. I can't wait to test letting the hair air dry and see what natural waves I get with this hair and that I will follow up with you in my 4 week video and how that turns out and much more.

Since this is my initial review I will have to follow up with you all and let you now how the hair maintains in the next four weeks. Until then leave your comments below as far as any questions you would like for me to answer in the 4 week review update concerning this hair. Once I get all of you questions I will address them in that video. Until then enjoy my initial review video below and visit The Original Indian Hair Company for more information about this hair and much more!

Halley’s Curls Virgin Malaysian Remy Hair Review

Today I am finally giving you all a review of maybe my favorite texture from halley’s curls which is the Halley’s curls virgin Malaysian hair. I have been wearing this hair for 6 weeks and now I am ready to give you my honest review and tell you personal experience with maybe my favorite hair texture from them. I have installed 2 packs of the 16 inch hair that sells for $103 per pack. Now I recommend is you like a thicker install you may want to install 2 ½ packs of hair.

Now as far as a closure you can purchase them from Halley’s curls however, I am not using a closure on my hair. I have my natural hair exposed on top and around my hairline too! Because I personally like to feel my hair breath a little on top if you know what I mean.

This hair texture has intact cuticles and has not been chemically treated. The texture is sleek and straight, with the slightest hint of a wave when allowed to air dry. And let me tell you when it air dries the hair feels so soft and smooth.  Now as far as hair color their Supreme Malaysian Remy Hair Collection is only available in its natural hair color. Shades normally range from darkest brown to near black, so keep that in mind. This hair can be found at www.halleyscurls.com

You may ask how do you care for the Halley's Curls Virgin Malaysian Hair?

  1. Halley’s Curls recommends to Shampoo hair at least once a week with a product compatible with the hair texture.
  2. Do not massage or rub the hair against itself. Wash in a downward motion in order to avoid tangling. 
  3. Apply a moisturizing conditioner, wait at least 3 minutes.
  4. Gently towel dry hair. Apply a leave – in conditioner to hair.
  5. Gently comb hair with a wide tooth comb.
  6. Air dry hair or set the hair, while wet, on rollers for curls
  7. If you must use heat, to dry or style the hair, be sure you use a leave in conditioner first.

Daily Care for Straight Hair – Virgin Malaysian & Salon Relaxed

  1. Comb hair with a wide tooth comb, beginning at the ends and working your way up towards the scalp.
  2. Use alcohol free styling aids, such as mouse, gel, and hairspray in moderation. 
  3. Do not use oily or greasy products; it can cause extreme tangling to the hair.
  4. Before going to bed, braid, pin curl or roller set your hair.
  5. Sleep with a satin cap or on a satin covered pillow in order to avoid friction and tangling.

Products I Use on My Hair?

I currently use Oscar Blandi’s Shampoo di Jasmine – Smoothing Shampoo & Smoothing Conditioner and for my leave in I use either Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla spray or Bead Head leave in Conditioner.

To moisturize my hair I use Carol's Daughter Hair Balm on my hairline & exposed hair on top.

To add Shine on my hair I will minimally use Oscar Blandi’s Hair Serum

And for styles I want curls to last I will use sparingly is the Garnier Fructis Style Volumizing Anti-Humidity Hairspray, Extra Strong 3 with natural bamboo extract. I like this one because it does not make my hair fell sticky or hold and it makes my curls last all day with this high humidity this summer.

Was Styling The Virgin Malaysian Remy Hair Easy?

This hair styling very easy! I am not kidding. Once day I decided to create some beachy waves in my hair so I decided to give it a try. And if you follow me on my facebook fan page you already got a sneak peak of how the hair style turned out! This hair takes curls so fast! I was so impressed and the curl time was less than 25 minutes. And the curls lasted 8 hour for me with little dropping of curls, which is awesome!

This hair texture was also very easy to flat iron too! So the versatility of fabulous!!

Was There Any Tangling or Shedding With This Texture?

Tangling. . .What tangling? It was such a treat to not experience any tangling. I am surprised! Even in the 6th week no tangling!!

 With the other textures about 6 weeks you will see a little tangling, but again nothing major.  And, I am referring to the Salon relaxed and the Gentle Wave relaxed hair.

Shedding. . OMG! While working with this hair I noticed my bathroom floor was not accumulating hair on the floor and no complaining from hubby about hair on the floor. The other texture shedding, but very little. This one on the other hand little in none, so that was a plus!

No Matting at all!

My overall thought on this hair is that this is a great texture and I would recommend it however if you have natural none relaxed hair this texture may not blend well. So, I would recommend in this case the salon relaxed hair. If you have relaxed hair this texture is great!! The hair itself is smooth soft and lightweight on your hair. It is easy to care for and reuse.

I am really in love this texture even though I am transitioning my hair from relaxed to natural. Yes I am 8 weeks out from relaxing my hair. I am really REALLY trying transition my hair again. With that said I will use a flat iron minimally to keep the texture to blend. Unless you beauties have so suggestions for me send them my way.

Anyway. .  I hope that you all enjoyed my review of the Halley’s Curls Virgin Malaysian Remy Hair and if you would like to try this hair texture yourself visit the ladies over at www.Halleyscurls.com and also follow them on twitter at @halleyscurls. Until the next video you all take care Bye!
