Halley’s Curls: Beachy Wavy Hair Tutorial

Hey divas!! Are you ready for a fun beachy wavy hair tutorial? Well, in this tutorial I will be using my favorite hair texture from Halley's Curls called Virgin Malaysian Remy hair in order to create fast wavy hair in minutes! Yes, I mean in less than 20 minutes!! While I was getting ready for my trip to San Antonio with my family I decided I wanted beachy wavy hair and I wanted to share with you all my process and results!

Supplies needed for this tutorial are:

Now, creating this style is super fun and easy, however, I would only recommend doing a style like this with heat occasionally. Why? Remember too much heat can damage your hair and your hair extensions too, so keep styles like this as a special treat during the work week.

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!

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.

Oscar Blandi Jasmine Hair Collection

  • Oscar Blandi Shampoo di Jasmine Smoothing Shampoo 8.45 oz, $20 is essential for cleansing and smoothing all hair types that tend to be frizzy or unruly.

Halley’s Curls: Gentle Wave Relaxed Hair Extensions Review (Q&A’s)

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.

What products I used & Links on where to purchase:
Oscar Blandi Balsamo di Jasmine Smoothing shampoo & conditioner
Oscar Blandi Proteine di Jasmine Protein Mist for Restyling Hair 8.45 oz
Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum 1.69 oz
Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo 2.5 oz (for those high intense workout days)
Oscar Blandi Trattamento al Fango 5.3 oz Marine Mud deep conditioner (weekly treatment)
Bed Head leave in conditioner
Nexxus Heat Protexx protectant spray.

Halley’s Curls: How I Care For My Halley’s Curls

Wearing the Halley's Curls salon relaxed hair is such a great experience especially when you are wearing hair that feels like the texture of your own relaxed hair. However, there comes a time when you must care for this hair as if it was your own. So, you may ask. . . How do I care for my hair and my extensions in order to elongate the life of the hair in between installs? Well, the answer is washing and conditioning the hair often! Yes, that's it! How often she you was your hair with sewn-ins to consider? Well, I would say at least 1-2 times a week! Yes 1-2 times.

Washing the hair is crucial because throughout the week we sweat oil into our hairs, the use of styling products and moisturizers used begins to build up and after a while you may not that your beautiful hair extensions are beginning to look dry, starting to breakout or shed and will not curl or style because of too much product build up. When that it is time to wash and condition your hair.

What products should you use on your Halley's Curls? Well, I read the product info at Halleyscurls.com and they gave some wonderful recommendations of products to use. I took that information and added a few other things that are working well for me.

 

 

  • Deep Conditioning or Hot Oil Treatment twice a month: I used Alberto VO5 Hot Oil Weekly Intense Conditioning Treatment What they say about the product is:

    Moisturizing
    Restores Silky Softness

    Dramatically Revitalizes Hair

    Saturate your hair with moisture and strengthen it up to 4x*, with VO5 Moisturizing Hot Oil.  This vitamin and protein formula restores moisture to dry hair and helps reconstruct damaged strands.  All in under one minute! And it's true after this washing and condition my hair fells so soft and shiny too! This will definitely stay in my hair care routine!

  • Shampoo: For the past month I have been using the Dove Therapy Intense Damage Repair Shampoo This shampoo smells so good and feels good on the hair too. What they say about this one:  With Repairing Serum beautiful hair begins with protection and repair.
    It For Hair That Has:
    Hair with severe, accumulated damage, prone to breakage and split ends.
    Solution:
    Intense Damage Therapy System
    Repairs severe, accumulated damage by penetrating into the finest lines and breaks of every strand for intense hydration.
    Strengthens each hair strand, reducing hair breakage and split ends.
    Leaves hair healthy and strong from root to tip.

  • Conditioner: I also use the Dove Therapy Intense Damage Repair Conditioner. This condition is also rich and not extremely heavy ecspecially since it is packed full of great ingrediant for the hair. What they say is the condition has a  Patented Micro Moisture Serum and Fiber Active Advanced Care & Repair for Beautiful Hair. It helps reconstruct hair and prevent split ends and breakage. When your hair feels dry and breaks easily, or you're struggling with lots of split ends, it's time for Dove Intense Damage System. Reduce the split ends with our Expert damage care technology:
    Intense Damage system with Fiber Actives deeply penetrates porous hair to reconstruct it from within.
    Intense Damage system with Patented Micro Moisture Serum strengthens and nourishes hair from root to tip.
    Did you know? Hair damaged on the inside is porous and weak, therefore more prone to breakage and splitting.
    Intense Damage leaves hair strengthened and resilient to future damage.
  • Leave In Conditioner: I use Bed Head Ego Boost Split End Mender & Leave-in Conditioner [8.oz] This is a new leave in for me. I purchased this one because of it ability to do the follow for my hair and the extension: Split End Mender & Leave-in Conditioner Boost that ego and save your hair! This split end mender and leave-in conditioner mends and protects dry, damaged hair from environmental elements, chemical treatments, shampooing and brushing. Another product I will put in my hair when the weather is humid is the Dove Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream, 4-Ounce Bottle (Pack of 3) this products is great for reducing the frizz in this hot Texas heat.
  • Heat Protectants: I think it is important to use a heat protectant spray because hot the heat that will be used on the hair to blow dry and style with a heating appliance. The heat protectant I use isNexxus Heat Protexx Heat Protection Styling Spray, 8.5 fl oz (250 ml).

 

 

 

All in all these are the steps I have been using on my hair for the past month and I am enjoying using the less expensive brands on my hair of course with the exception of Kera Care and bed head. Anyway. I hope that this post was helpful to all of my hairnistas out there and if you have any questions or other favorite hair products that you would like share with us please leave a comment below!

Stay tunded my step by step tutorial will be coming soon!

TTFN,

Halley’s Curls: Week 5 Update

Hey my hairnistas out there! I know many of you have been curious to know how my Halley's Curls are holding up right? Well. . . it is week 5 and I have to say that I am loving this hair better than the Saga Gold remy and the sensational goddess hair too! Why? Well the texture of the Halleys Curls Salon Relaxed Malaysian hair feels just like my natural relaxed hair! No joking!! Many people give me complements on this hair and think it is mine and when I tell them that this hair is sewn in people rush to touch and feel this hair.

 

 

 

Now, many of my subscribers from my youtube channel NHOP76 have been asking the following question on my Halleys Curls:

  1. Does the hair shed a lot?
  2. Does the hair tangle to the point it looks like a birds nest is growing on the back of my neck? lol
  3. Does it curl and style well?
  4. How often do I wash my hair?

To answer your questions:

  1. The hair shed very minimally to me. Just like our natural hair sheds this will shed too. I also think any weave will shed more when the hair is not washed and maintained properly.
  2. Tangling? Very little ot no tangles. I talked to many people that wear weaves and people who's hair is naturally long and their response to me when it comes to tangling is: tangling is normal because of the friction that is created while me constantly move our heads around throughout the day.
  3. The hair curls and style beautifully!! However, if you want the curls too last in humid conditions you will have to use styling products to hold the curls and remember to wash it out that night in order to avoid product build up and breakage of your natural hair and the extensions too.
  4. I wash my hair 1-2 times a week. It depends on how much product build up I have and how many workouts I have completed for the week. But weekly washing is a must.

Overall, this hair is wonderful!! I am enjoying the beautiful texture of the hair and how soft the hair feels when I style it. I am glad that I purchased it because I will be using this hair for the winter months for sure! In the month of December I think I will sport a waving style from Halleys Curls, so definitely stay tuned for that. In the meantime, I will be posting another video on how I care from my Halleys Curls in detail. Until next time have a great day!

Hair Extensions: Halley’s Curls Review

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!!

Here's my Order:

Halleys Curls

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:

 

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.

The are the products I used By Dove:
 
Hair products

Hair Preparation & Drying:

Co Washing Halleys Curls

Dry time

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!

My New Style:

My Hair Install

Back View

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!! Anyway, if you would like to see my video review click on the video below. I also have a playlist on my Youtube channel called Hair extension and Hair Care. There you will see products I use on my hair and styling tools I am loving for the moment.
