Hey my hairnistas out there that love to have the weaves looking fierce! I recently came across HalleyCurls.com on youtube, through my obsessiveness of watching reviews and tutorials myself, I was personally looking for a new brand of hair extensions to try even though my Lord & Cliff Art Remi Hair lasted me so long I wanted to try another brand to see how it compares to the brands I have tried in the past.
Back on July 16th I decided to order my first Halleys Curls hair from Halleyscurls.com. The ordering process was easy and to my surprise my order arrived very quickly the following Monday! Wow, right!!
I was impressed with the packaging because it looked like the packaging you get from your local beauty supply store. It also came with the business cards along with my receipt and return policy. The hair that I ordered was the 12" & 14" Malaysian Salon Relaxed hair. The reason why I got this hair is due to the texture. The hair resembles the texture of relaxed African-American hair! I am not kidding it does!! So, before I got to excited I went ahead and started to prep my hair for my install. The recommend to do the follow be for installing the hair:
- Co wash the hair in a basin or sink of warm water mixed with the Dove Therapy Intense Damage Conditioner for 1 hour and rinse out
- Next Shampoo the hair using From the Dove Advanced Care Intense Damage Therapy Shampoo
- Condition The hair with the same Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Conditioner
- Then rinse out and add your leave in conditioner, I used L'Oreal EverPure Moisture Leave-In Conditioner, Rosemary Mint, & Dove Therapy Frizz Control Taming Cream, For Rebellious, Unmanageable Hair ($4.75)
I have to say that I have never used these products because I thought that I was supposed to use products that are for "African American" hair, but according to my stylist I was wrong. The products are great because they will not agitate your cuticles and strip your hair of vital moisture it needs to retain. So I am going to used this product on my natural hair too. Why? Because the product smells fabulous and the hair did not have that dried out coarse texture after washing. So. . .Tasha LOVES Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Line of products!! I even got my hair lady interested in it too.
Hair Preparation & Drying:
I have to say that this was a process, but necessary to get the hair ready for install. After the hair dries you can seal the wefts on the hair with Aleene's hair glue to help minimize shedding. However, after talking with the Halleys Curls they assured me that I did not have to glue the wefts no longer because the wefts are sewn with such quality that the shedding is minimal without gluing the weft. So the next time around I will not glue the wefts because it took FOREVER, lol to do this task.
Anyway, I got my hair installed a few day later and I was soooo excited because I love the way the hair feels and I love my new style for this fall season!
I love this new style!! I am feeling a bit Kim Kardashian with the dark curly locks, but I will gets used it. I am just so used to my 1b30 hair color I wore this entire spring and summer. Many have been commenting on my Youtube channel do have a frontal installed or a closure? The answer to that question is no! My stylist left my hair out on top by the part section of my style and blended in my hair with the extensions, pretty cool, huh? I honest don't like wearing closures because I feel so hot and my scalp needs to breath.
All in all, I love this new hair! I have been wearing this hair for a week and not tangles or extreme shedding at all! If you looking for something like this for your next install definitely check out Halleyscurls.com! I think they are still having they sale that end July 31st!!
