Final Review: Carina Hair Co and World’s Best Hair 

Reviews

Hey Guys! I wanted to stop by with the final review for my grey and blue ombré hair from Aliexpress vendors Carina Hair Co and World’s Best Hair. 

To see full review from beginning click Here

I wore the hair sewn in for 4 months. I had the Carina Hair Co, which I ordered in 413 blonde, ombred by my hair stylist Kameshia Norris-Jackson. I left the World’s Best Hair in its 1b color. 

One week Review
One Month
The hair’s behavior:

Carina Hair Co: 

This hair had minimal shedding. It did tangle but it did not mat at all.  It took both colors really well. It held curls from a wand and flexi rods. The only problem that I had with this hair was when I used a product from Bed Head to get the hair bone straight. It stripped the hair of a good bit of color and caused it to become stiff. I let the hair sit in conditioner and it bounced right back. 

World’s Best Hair

At the price point that I paid for this hair, this hair performed great! It also had minimal shedding with little to no tangling and no matting at all! This hair actually did not have a bad reaction to the Bed Head product. I believe it was because the Carina Hair Co was colored and the Worlds Best Hair wasn’t.  This hair looked thin but once installed, it didn’t appear as thin. I also had a vixen so that will help out with the fullness when using this hair. 

Would I recommend these companies?

Yes! I only paid 187.00 for four bundles and a closure. The maintence and upkeep on the hair isn’t a lot. I will say though it is about finding products that will work with the hair. This hair, especially the World’s Best Hair is great for the budgetnista. I will be installing the hair on a dome cap so that I can slide it on and off. 

If I missed anything, please do not hesitate to ask.

First Wash and Useful Products

Reviews, Uncategorized

Hey guys! I wanted to stop by with an update on this hair that I am currently wearing from the companies Carina Hair Co and Worlds Best Hair. Links to my initial review and one week update will be linked below. 

Yesterday I went for my first wash on my hair since the install. Because I’m natural, I only let my stylist wash my sew ins. The Carina Hair Co hair returned to its wavy state after its first wash. The World’s Best Hair hair had a wave pattern but it wasn’t a prominent as before.  Both companies’ hair are still shedding minimally and I am getting no matting what so ever. The tangling is manageable. It’s nothing that a paddle brush won’t get rid of. 

The products that are used to maintain this hair are: 

Spectrum Coconut oil ( when needed) by me
Products used at the salon

Wen shampoo and conditioner 

Mini smoothing oil 

Kenra Siliking gloss 
Please do not hesitate to let me know if I missed anything.

Yesterday was my birthday!!! I turned 29 years old! I work a full time job along side being a blogger and a home based business owner. I was really drained and I wasn’t going to do anything for my birthday. I finally realized that I was born on the best holiday ever, so the least I could do was partake in some of the festivities. 

I wanted to rock something that I haven’t worn In any ootd but still be comfortable. 

So what did you guys do for Cinco De Mayo? Not only did I eat some wonderful Mexican dishes, I went shopping! I have a birthday haul coming soon!!!!

First Look and Initial Review: World’s Best Hair +Carina Hair Peruvian Body Wave

Reviews, Uncategorized

Hey guys! I’m back with new hair from two different Aliexpress vendors, Carina Hair and Worlds Best Hair! Because I’m wearing both companies’ hair in the same install, I decided to review them in the same post. 

Specs: 

I purchased 4 bundles and a closure.

I only used three bundles and the closure in my two part vixen with a closure

Carina Hair: 18 inch closure and 20 inch bundle in 613 for 82.55 (together) 

Worlds Best Hair: 22,24,26  1b bundle deal 105.00

The hair is a Peruvian body wave texture

The Carina Hair has been dyed a grey and blue ombre

Total Cost: 187.00

Why did I order from two different vendors? 

I decided to go with a grey and blue ombre for the closure and top bundle. To achieve this look along with leaving my natural hair out, I needed to purchase a 613 with black roots. None of the companies I looked at offered all 1b bundles and the 613 bundles, it was either or. I came across a company called Carina Hair company. This company offered the lowest price for the 20 inch bundle and 18 inch closure. I did not see many reviews on the hair but I did come across one from a YouTube Guru by the name of rinaTHEchristina

Worlds Best hair had a 50% off sale. That’s my reason from purchasing from them. I found two reviews on the hair, after I purchased. I decided with the price that I would pay for three bundles in 22, 24 and 26, why not! 
First Look: 

   
   

The Carina Hair 

   
Worlds Best Hair 
The shipping on the World’s best hair was excellent. I order from both vendors on a Tuesday. I received the hair from World’s Best Hair the following Monday via DHL. Carina Hair, well that’s a different story! I received the hair via USPS two weeks later. I was a little upset but in order to receive free shipping on the product I had to get it via EMS. Then it had to be shipped to the USPS so patience was the key! Also they included a free pair of eyelashes!  

Side note: You can contact the Vendor or select fed ex packaging for faster shipping with Carina Hair! My packaging was not like the picture on Carina Hair’s Aliexpress page but that’s no big deal to me.

Upon receiving the hair I did open the package to check for the  infamous corn chip smell. It passed for both companies! Now the closure smelled burnt. I do not know why but every closure that I’ve purchased via Aliexpress has that same smell. It goes away with a good co wash but man does it stink!  The World’s Best hair looked really thin inside the packaging and before your install. Once it’s on your dome cap or sewn in it begins to look thicker. The Carina hair looked thick in both the packaging and during the install. 

Initial Review

  
This pic is from my first day of the install. I did experience shedding from the Worlds Best Hair hair while flexi roding  before bed. I experience none from the Carina Hair hair, yet. So far no tangling or matting from either hair brands. The Carina Hair hair took the dye very well! Both of the hair straightens  very well. I will check to see if the curl pattern returned after my first wash. 

The process was completed by my hair stylist Kameshia Norris- Jackson of Lalia’s Hair Salon in Anderson, SC owned by stylist Kalisha Lindsey. 

The hair is installed as a two part vixen sew in with a closure. I only have three of the four bundles installed but please remember two facts if you decide to purchase, I have a side cut on almost 1/2 of my head and I have tiny head. I would still suggest to order four bundles total when dealing with lengths past 20 inches.

I will be back with an one week update on the hair! 

Please feel free to post any questions or concerns you may have or simply if you feel that I missed anything!

Final Review: Sophia Hair Kinky Straight Mongolian

Hi guys! I wanted to stop by with a quick final review of the Mongolian Kinky Straight hair from aliexpress vendor, Sophia Hair.

14, 16,18 and 20 inches

Three Month Review
Sophia Hair
I wore the hair for four months in a two and three part sew in. My stylist on sewed in the 14,18 and 20 inches.  Let’s jump into the pros and cons! 

Pros: The hair take color well and will get bone straight. 

The Cons:

The shedding wasn’t that bad. I had minimal shedding from the longest bundles and no shedding from the 14 inch that was  bleached and dyed.  The biggest problem that I had with the hair was the tangling. My 20 inch tangled so much that I believe it ended up becoming an 18 inch.  Also the hair would not hold a curl at all and after straightening the hair it did not return to its kinky state. 

Would I recommend the hair? 

Well I will say that if you wish to purchase this hair make your longest length 18. Also if you wish to keep the hair at it’s kinky state then do not add any heat to the hair. As I stated in my previous post, I have the 16 inch bundle and I will make clip ins out of this hair. I will have a review up on that as well. At this moment I would have to say I will not repurchase hair from this company. I ended up having to trash the hair from the sew in.

So grey isn't only for the Golden anymore! Last November I wanted a color in my hair that was on trend but one that I could get away with. I have been going grey since the age of 25. It's hereditary.
Also, everybody was doing the teal and purple. No one was brave enough to look old. I didn't want to bleach my hair. Although I'm natural, I am still afraid of bleaching and coloring all of my real hair. I only colored my 14 inch bundle.

How I achieved the Grey Look

I went to a professional. I may try this out myself but with my work schedule, I just decided to let my hair stylist, Kameshia Norris Jackson, do it. Funny thing was this, it was her first time. I have to say she did great.

We Started A Movement

I say we as in the brave women who wasn't scared to go grey in 2014! I saw a few celebs doing grey last year but this year more celebs are coming out of the box! I hope that this trend sticks around for a while. #silverhairnation #teamgrey

You can do it too!

It's different shades of grey. 50 shades, lolx. Seriously, there are a lot of shades. The fun thing about going grey is the undertones to it. I started out with more of a yellowish undertone. Now I have a teal undertone. I've seen pink, purple, blue and many other undertones. It's all about finding out which one is right for you. We will all go grey eventually.

Commitment Issues.

No problem. Try a temporary solution.
