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!

Oscar Blandi Jasmine Collection: My New Hair Routine

Hey beauties! If you have seen my most recent hair video on my Halley's Curls Gentle Wave Relaxed Hair you noticed me talking about my newest hair routine. Well in today I will be sharing with you all the specifics I use on my Halley's Curls and My hair too! As you all know that I started wearing Halley's Curls back in August 2010 and with the use of this beautiful hair I was using the Dove Intensive therapy hair routine with it. I love the Dove line, but I was eager to try something new. I blame the fashion and beauty magazine for this.

While at Sephora I came across Oscar Blandi Jasmine collection and what I read I found out that the hair collection is great for creating shine and frizz free hair without all of the harsh sulfates. So I got some samples and tried it on my hair and the Halleys Curls, and let me tell you. .  I loved the way my hair and the Halley's Curls felt after using the products. So I went back to purchase the entire hair care line for me to use.

Well, today I will be sharing with you all how I create this look in less thank 30 minutes.

Now you may be thinking will I have to use expensive hair tools and products to achieve this look? The answer is no! You can find the tools I used from you local drugstore and Sally Beauty stores in you local neighborhoods. The products I used I have been using for over a month now and I completely love them and would totally recommend them to use.

What you will need and why are:

A Vented Paddle Brush: The one I use is by Revlon and I like to use this one to brush out all of the tangles out of the hair, so that the hair is nicely separated and even. As a result, when you apply your styling products the hair will gone on even. If you can not find the same exact brush any vented paddle brush will do. In addition to being a get brush to separate the hair this brush is also used to aid in blow drying the hair too!
A Boar Hair Brush: If great for blending in your natural hair in with the extension or weave. Since I do have some of my natural hair exposed at the crown and nape of my head this brush is great for blending and smooth the hair into the extension. It also creates a nice shine to the hair too!
Curling Iron: The curling that I love to use is Hot Tools by Helen of St. Troy. The Hot Shot Tools Ceramic Tourmaline Curling Iron creates soft, shiny beautiful hair. Professional features include ceramic and tourmaline plates that emit gentle far-infrared heat and passive negative ions to preserve hair’s natural moisture, seal the cuticle and eliminate frizz. Hair is soft, conditioned and radiant. Pulse Auto Heat Control provides precise temperatures for uninterrupted, consistent heat. The Hot Shot Tools Ceramic Tourmaline Curling Iron heats up quickly and heat recovery is instant. I love this Iron and I love the fact that it heats up quickly and even. I use the 450 setting. Hot Shot Tools Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron $29.99
TRESemme Curl Activator Spray: This product defines and freezes curls that are formed with the heat from a curling iron. Its vitamin-enriched formula supplies the moisture curls need to prevent stubborn flyaways. It’s ideal for hair that usually doesn’t keep waves – the lightweight holding polymers combine flexibility and holding power for perfect long-lasting ringlets.

Hair Clips: Any hair clips will do to help section off your hair and make it easier to style smaller sections at a time. You can find these cute little clips at any local beauty supply store, sally beauty, and any drugstore as well. I purchased mine from my local beauty supply store. The package came with 9 clips for $2.99. So they are very affordable.

Directions:

  1. First comb out and section off hair. If it helps to section the hair off into quarter with your hair clips then do so.
  2. Take the very first section and spritz hair very lightly with the TRESemme curl activator spray.
  3. Then take a small 1 inch section of hair a curl the hair on the barrel of the curling iron and curl the hair away from the hair. Hold the iron there for a few seconds and the release the hair from the iron and let the curl cool off. Letting the curl cool off will help it maintain it’s curl.
  4. Continue to curl the remainder of the hair.
  5. Once all sections are curled to your liking use your fingers to comb through the curls to loosen then curls up, so that they will end up big and wavy!
  6. Now begin to blend your natural hair, if it is exposed with the boar hair paddle brush into the extensions and once that it is done you are ready for the final step which is spritzing your hair with the Garnier Fructis spray in order to help the hair hold its style and block humidity too!

Once you have completed this you will have beautiful big wavy curls for sure!! I hope that you enjoyed this information and if you would like to have more tutorials like this or have any suggestions for tutorials for hair styles with extensions please leave some comments below.

Hair Care: Washing & Conditioning Sew-in Extensions

Hey my beauty chameleons, if you follow me on youtube then you already have seen my video on how I care for my hair when I am wearing extensions/weave that have been sewn-in. Many subscribers of mine have been requesting a video on how I get my Milky Way’s Saga Gold Premium Yaky Remi hair weave to last so long without the matting and tangling. I honestly don’t do anything special, but following my hair care regime. For my weekly wash I use the following items:

So, overall I am not a professional hair stylist my any means. I just read books that educate and ask my stylist lots of questions too and I recommend you do the same because everyone’s hair is different. Anyway, if you would like to see my process on me using the items mentioned above feel free to watch my tutorial provided below.

Hair: Milky Way Saga Gold remy Yaky Hair Update

Remy-YakiLadies!! If you all watch me on youtube before Christmas I recently had my extensions sew in and I created a video to let everyone know what the results were and how much I love my hair. Many viewers loved the way my hair turned out and wanted me to create a update date video on how long my Milky Way Saga Gold Remy Yaky Hair last.  So, I did. I have to say I LOVE this hair. It has been 3 weeks and the hair look awesome!!

Last night I washed it and my natural hair and it still look as great or even better then when I first put this hair in. I originally purchase this hair from savebeauty.com. The reason why I purchase this hair from them is because of the price point. It was less expensive to purchase this hair online then getting it from my local beauty supply store, and the quality of the hair is fabulous. There is no matting, tangling and shedding with this hair which is what I love. You can also straighten and curl this because it is 100% human hair.

This is what my packages look like:

remi hair 2

The color I order was 1B30 and I love the color. Many friends and clients of mine say this hair look great with my complexion, so I am very pleased with this color and I am so happy!! For the style on my hair I order two bags and I ended with a little extra left over. Anyway, if you are curious to know my thoughts and see my update thoughts check out the video below:
