Full Lace Wig: Hot Season Hair

Reviews

So I wanted to stop by with the long awaited review on my full lace wig that I purchased from Aliexpress vendor, Hot Season Hair. I had to take a while to start posting more so at the request of the vendor. Now that I have all of the “right” components, I’m ready to give you guys the info on this hair. 

Specs:

Full Lace Wig 

18 inches 

1b 

Mongolian Kinky Curly 

150 density

Glueless cap 

Size small

Wig price: 279

Bundles: 99.00 (18 and 20) 

Link to hair: Hair
I had the wig colored professionally to a two toned brown/ blonde combo. 

We added 1 1/2 bundles of 18 and 20 inch Mongolian kinky Curly to the wig for fullness. 

Initial review: 

My boyfriend ordered the hair on Wednesday night in September. I received a call from the merchant , Anna, that same night. She wanted to verify my order before she fully processed it. That’s when I found out that my boyfriend had accidentally ordered the wrong type of wig. I messaged Anna and she fixed it at a discounted rate. I took 48 hours for the hair to get processed and shipped. I received the wig the following Thursday.  It arrived via DHL. It came wrapped in your standard DHL packaging but the wig it self was inside of plastic placed in a box. I appreciated that. The seller also provided a gold braclet as an added gift. 

The hair did not have the infamous corn chip smell. 

   
    

Coloring the hair:

So if your familiar with my blog and reviews, then you know that Kameshia Norris Jackson is my hair stylist. I decided to let her color my wig prior to the install. When she colored the hair the color took but not as well or as fast as any of the other hair that we’ve used in the past. The hair also shedded and tangled due to the bleach that was added to obtain the color. It also stretched the curls. Because I had ordered 150 density, it helped with keeping the wig to not look as thin. 

Install

I have the wig sewn down on one side and glued/taped on the other. I have glue on the side that I have my side cut on. 

   
 
Products used on this hair

I use a spray bottle of water/conditioner ( The Family Dollar Store Version of Hello Hydration by Herbal Essence) and  a curl spray product called Kenra. It’s holding setting is 8. This product was recommended to me by my hair stylist. To detangle the hair I use my ConAir paddle brush and/or my Modessa wide tooth comb.  I tried Pantene’s natural’s line on the hair but I did not like how it left the hair feeling.  

   
I ended up contacting Anna to let her know about how much hair was lost from the wig after coloring it and that I wanted to purchase bundles to bring fullness back to the wig. She sold me the hair at a discounted rate for my troubles.  The next few pics will show you how much of a difference was made after adding the bundles

   
   
Pros and Cons

Pros: 

Hair takes color 

Easy to blend with kinky textured hair

Has adjustable straps and combs for every day removal 

True to length 

Beautiful curls 

Will Detangle with extra effort 

Hair is full lace so that the hair can be pulled up

Cons: 

Very High maintenance 

Can not sleep in without two strand twisting the hair or pineapple to the top of head 

Sheds 

Matts 

No baby hairs

Would I recommend this hair:

So far I will say yes. Now with that being said I only say yes under these circumstances. First if you are a low maintenance, get up and go type girl like myself this wig would be the wig that you want to NOT get sewn down on your head. You would need to take advantage of the combs and adjustable straps. This hair is VERY high maintenance as most kinky curly hair is. It will shed and it does tangle at the nape area. If you don’t Detangle  the hair fast enough it will matt. I have not ran into any problems dematting  or detangling the hair. 

If you have the time to two strand twist your hair before bed and style it daily  then this hair is perfect to sew down on your head.  Overall I would recommend this hair.  If you run into any problems, Anna is always willing to help.  Their customer service is on point! 

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I will be back in two weeks with my final review on this hair.

OOTD: Styling a Granny Piece

What She Wore/ OOTD

Hey guys! Guess who’s back? First let me start off by apologizing for my LONG hiatus. I had a lot going on in my life. But enough with the excuses, let me jump right into the post. 

So I love thrifting! I’ve purchased so many different items during the summer that I can’t wait to show you guys through different post. The item that I am featuring is a Jersey Sleep Shirt orginally from Sears. The brand is Tropical Escape. I paid .50 for it from my local Salvation Army.

  
So I decided to style it with my vintage Denim Lee Jacket, my boyfriend’s Aztec five panel hat from Forever 21 and my Aztec print slip on’s from Rugged Warehouse by the brand Twisted. 

I chose this shirt because of the size, fit and style. I feel like the fact that it resembles a baseball jersey. I can’t wait to use this in my next segment. 

   
   
Deets:

Hey guys! How is everyone today? Well I wanted to stop by with a look book/ style inspiration part 1. I wanted to start with my style.

I would describe my style as anything comfortable. I love to take stylish pieces and build around them. I own a fair amount of clothes. How I shop is by two methods. My first method is buying key pieces. These are the pieces that I am willing to splurge on if I have to. If I can get it for the low- low like the coco, then I’m all over it! ( sorry I had to throw that in there.lolx)

My second method is that I buy what I like that’s on trend. I normally find these anywhere and I don’t spend a lot on them. I try to keep the price point for these pieces under 20 dollars.
