Let’s talk about human hair!
I have had a hard natural hair journey because my hair grows at a very slow rate. It could be because of genetics or diet or the fact that I do not take care of my natural hair as well as most naturalistas do. Last year, I learned how to style and love my natural hair but this year is all about protective hairstyles.
I have been loving big hairstyles for months now but in May, I felt that I needed a change. When Human Hair Company, Hair Shopee reached out to collaborate, I decided to try out a straight hairstyle. They sent me two bundles of straight human hair bundles and a closure.
The hair arrived in a few days but it took some time for me to get the hair done and I wanted to actually wear the hair for a while before writing the review.
I got two 20 inch bundles and a closure from Hair Shopee but had to add an old one as well because two bundles were not enough. My hairdresser adviced that she should add the old human hair pieces at the back so that they are covered by the new hair.
Right off the bat, the hair was so light and soft. A few days after getting my hair done, I started getting itchy but it could be because of the hair oil they used on my scalp or the fact that I wore the hair without washing it first. Regardless of the itching, I got so many compliments.
I decided to wash my hair after a week to try and calm my scalp and it worked! I washed the hair with a mint based shampoo and applied the Marini Naturals Leave-In Conditioner to soften the human hair even more. I combed it gently with a wide tooth comb and there was shedding because of the additional piece that I had to use. The shedding was expected because the quality of the extra human hair piece was lower than Hair Shopee’s. After air dried it, I flat ironed it with the help of a friend and voila! It had amazing volume, it did not itch at all and it looked amazing.
All in all, I love the hair and cannot wait to test out their curly weaves and wigs.
