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. 

   
 

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!

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!
