Halley's Curls Gentle Wave Relaxed Hair:

Hey my beauty chameleons!! I bet you all are like, about time your give us an update on the hair you are sporting in your new videos, right? Well, finally I can share with you on my thoughts of the Halley's Curls Gentle Wave Salon Relaxed Malaysian Remy Hair. Now, you all now that I love the salon Relaxed, but after wearing it for a while I noticed that it did not hold curls that well unless I put lots of hair spray in my hair and the downside to doing that is you have to wash and condition more often than once a week. Hence, a lot of work, lol. Or If I did not wash my hair as often you end up with a lot of product build it which can cause stress on the Halley's Curls.

As a result, I looked in my closet and looked at my two 16 inch packs of the Gentle Wave Relaxed Hair and said to myself, "girl go ahead a install it yourself!" I had this hair for awhile, but I was scared to install it in fear of ruining the hair. So long story short, I began to prep my Halley's Curls and washed, condition, and let the have dry before installing it with my new hair care system which I will talk about in another post. If you need to know how to prep your new Halley's curls check out my step by step tutorial by clicking "here".

Now before I go into details you probably want to know what the hair looks like before washing it? Well, I did keep a stand of hair so that you can see the wave pattern of the hair before washing it.  (Watch Video below to see what the strand of hair looks like.) The hair is very wavy and beautiful. Now when you wash and blow dry it the wave will loosen to appear full with lots of body. The texture of the hair is like your our hair (African American Hair) after being relaxed. I like that compare to the Saga gold, sensational goddess hair Indian hair. Why? Think about it when your feel the textures of those extensions mentioned after washing those hairs and installing it into your hair that has been relaxed don't your experience a difference of texture and the hair not blending it? I know I do and more people can tell that I am wearing extensions, but when I am wearing Halley's curls people think it is my hair even friends that known me for a while they think that my hair has grown really fast, lol. So that is why I continue to love Halley's curls. The hair is so realistic.

Anyway, the installation went fabulous! I wished I would have taken a picture of my braid pattern, but I am a perfectionist and trying to perfect it myself before I reveal and share with you all. But from the video below you can see how much I am enjoying this weeks. With curls, I don't have to use a lot of hair spray if any to hold my curls in while I am at work all day which is AWESOME!! I also like the fact that if I want to wear my hair straight it is simple to flat iron it with my T3 medium duality flat iron too! I am not kidding.

I have been wearing this hair for 7 weeks now and with regular washing and deep condition this has minimum shedding and tangles too especially with my Oscar Blandi hair products I hauled for Sephora. Now you my ask me:

How do you keep the hair from tangling?
Advice:
Washing & deep conditioning the hair 1-2 time a week will keep your Halleys curls lasting through several install. Believe me I will be re-installing this style in 3 more weeks for sure!

If you use heat styling everyday on your Halleys curls try not to heat style as often use your curling rods or rollers. Just think if you heat style your natural everyday wouldn't it get damaged, dry and brittle and eventually break off? Well that is the same thing that will happen to your Halleys curls or any hair extension you wear. If I have to heat style often I make sure that I use a heat protectant spray or a restyling spray to protect my hair and the Halleys curls from damage. I also will use a serum on the hair to closed the cuticles too. SO keep that in mind. Also trying your halleys curls in a protective style like a chigon or braid at night time will cause less friction on the hair too.

Will the hair shed?
Just like your real hair Halleys curls and any other have extension will shed to some extent. My experience with Halleys curls was minimal. I think just keep you hair and Halleys curls hydrated and you will not experience a lot of shedding and breakage.

  • Lisa

    Hi I was just wondering if you sealed your wefts and if you did what did you use to seal it and also did you cut your wefts? Thank You.

    • Natasha

      No I did not seal the wefts this time around. I also cut the wefts too. So far the hair is doing okay. 2 months of use already :)

  • Nicole

    Hey Natahsa, I just ordered Halley's Curls and plan to wear them for eight to 10 mths. I don't want to relax my hair during this time, but I will be using your braid pattern. Do you think to will be okay to relax to hair I leave out and not my entire head of hair? Also each time I order new Halley's Curls I will need to color them to match my natural brownish color. Do you know anyone who has colored the Halley's Curls and if so how did it turn out? If these seem like odd questions it is because I just started wear weaves, inspired by you, and do not know much about them.
    P.S. I love your website and your videos even more.

    • Natasha

      Hi Nicole,
      It is totally okay to relaxed the hair that is out. That is what I do too! Now I haven’t heard any reviews yet on someone coloring the halleys curls, so I am unsure of what to tell you. I would recommend emailing Halley’s Curls to see what they thin before doing it. Best wishes on you new do and let me know how everything turns out :)

  • Katrina

    Hello Natasha…. Please allow me to say thank you for doing a Wonderful Job for us women that love to venture into new things!!!!!  What lenght did you purchase from Halley's Curl's and if you were to try any other type of hair from them, what would it be??? And one other small request please… lol:-P  Is there anyway that maybe you could do tutorial on applying make up on skin that has dark spots and what you recommend for treatment on the dark spots…. I have a hard time not only finding the rite make up, but the rite concealor as well. Thanx a bunch!

    • Natasha

    Hello,
    i read your blog from time to time and find it very informational and helpful.
    I have puchased several products based on your reccommendations and reviews; Halleys curls GWR being one of them.
    However, since i made my purchase i have not heard anything from them and every attempt i have made to get in touch with them va email has proved futile.
    As i am travelling out of the country and wanted to take the hair with me i really need to get in touch with them ASAP.
    Would you by any chance have other contact info for them aside the email address?
    Thank you.
    ~NAA~

    • Natasha

      Hey diva,

      I feel your pain. I have the same email and I have been trying to contact them myself and I am having the same problem too. If I hear from them I will let you know too!!
      Sorry Diva,

      Tasha

    Hi Tasha, I am considering the gentle wave relaxed. The look I’m looking for is a loose wave towards the lower half of the hair. Is the gentle wave…a wave from weft to end. When u wash the gentle wave or just wet it can u let air dry to get the wave look.

    • Tokunbo

      Hi Sandra,
      I know your question is for Tasha,but I felt I could also input :) Like  most of the reviews you will see, the hair has a nice body/loose wave. The Hair changes slightly after you wash and condition before install as the instructions prompt you to do. The waves are NOT as tight afterwards, and tends to wave/curl more towards the bottom of the hair. I recently got mine and I am so excited cause my boo helped me install it last weekend (poor guy, but did a great job for a first-timer). I did noticed that my wave pattern is slightly different with my packs. My 16" pack (GWR) has a "better" or stronger wave pattern while wet or dry when compared to my 18" (GWR).  Still love the hair so far no tangles, no shedding, LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVe it

    Hi! I was hoping if you could remember if you had your edges out with this install? I'm getting this hair installed tomorrow and want to mimic this look. Thanks!

    • Natasha

      Yes, I did leave the edges out. I always leave my edges out :)

  • Ladyken

    I’ve just recently began wearing a weave. My natural hair is about as long as the weaves I’ve purchased. However, after I take out the weave, my hair doesn’t seem as long (this may just be a mind thing since I’ve been wearing the weave, but…….) How do you care for your natural hair while wearing the weave? Also, my leave out tends to get really dry around the edges. What do you suggest for my edges? Please share your products’ names. I need a great moisturizer because I sweat really badly in my head, especially during excercise.

    Thanks

  • Gloria Jackson

    Hi Tasha,
    I have the gentle wave relax hair and it always seem to be poufy even after I flat iron it, how did  you avoid that problem with yours?
    Thank you,
    Gloria
     

    • Natasha

      Hi Gloria,

      When I would flat iron that texture I was apply either argan oil or Kera care’s esscential oil on the hair to help it lay down an stay smooth. Just be mindful and not to over apply those products :)

  • T

    What lipstick are you wearing in this video? love it

    • Natasha

      I am not too sure! This is an old video! Sorry diva!

  • Kim

    Hey Tasha,

    I am trying to make a decision on purchasing from Halley’s Curls or Indian Hair Company (Original). I’ve watched your reviews and others on both and I thought I was sold with HC’s but….I’m still not 100% sure who to go with. I want that full voluminous look. If you had to choose between IHC or HC which brand would you go with? Not sure if you can answer that …but pros and cons comparing both would be great.

    Also do you have any advice on a good primer before applying makeup?

    Thanks so much!
    Kim

    • Natasha

      Hi kim!

      Sorry so late, busy holiday season for me and my family! I love the Halley’s Curls! You will have voluminous hair with them and the hair texture is a perfect match for African american hair too! I love the IHC, but the hair texture is a bit different from our own hair especially if it is not relaxed. That’s the only difference I see between the two brands is texture.

      Primers? I really love either smashbox photo finish primer. If you have oily skin then use smashbox photo finish light!

    Hey. I’m trying to do something new with hair. Where can I find these hair or do I have to order it of line??

  • Kendra

    Those Oscar Blandi products were on sale at Sephora today. I got three products (shampoo, conditioner, and serum) for around $30.

  • Latasha

    Hi Natasha,

    I am new to extensions, but love Halley’s Curls. Learned about the hair thru a friends. My question is, I usually use Carol’s Daughter’s Monoi line, do you think this would be good product to use with the Gentle Wave Relaxed Hair? By the way your tips are great.

    Thanks,

    Latasha
