So today I want to talk about some hair I bought from Aliexpress but first I want to say that anyone can get hair extensions. There are so many different types of hair extensions to help you achieve the perfect looks you're trying to get from volume to length to just a safe and easy way to do whatever it is you want to hair without doing it to your own hair(like what I did). There are also so many different types of ways to have hair installed or added, from wearing wigs, halos, clips ins to sew ins, fusions and even glue ins. So don't think that you can't get that full, curly, waist length hair just because you have thin, straight, short or even no hair because anything is possible with the right stylist and the right hair.
So back on topic I ordered some hair from Aliexpress a couple months ago. If you haven't heard of Aliexpress, is a great place to get things for a really affordable price, most things come from overseas and you also have to be careful because sometimes it's hit and miss and luckily for me I scored.
I purchased my hair from Star Style Hair, I purchased the 3pc Brazilian body wave in 20",22", and 24" for $149.30. Now with Aliexpress prices are always changing some days it's cheap some days they want your first born but for the most part Stay Style Hair's prices have always been affordable and that's one of the main reason's I purchased from them. Another reason was because the customer service rocked, Stephanie answered all of my questions and helped me decide what hair would be good for me because I'm only 5'2" and I wanted long hair but I didn't want hair like Rapunzel.
What surprised me was shipping was so fast, you would think that it came from down the street. I ordered on a Saturday around noon and got it that Monday at 3:45 pm! Makes me wonder what is taking my rhinestones and clothes so long to get to me.
So when I opened my yellow package from DHL inside was my hair, 4 flexirods and a card with instructions for hair maintenance.
After running my fingers through it a million times I washed the hair using Oganix's Kukui Oil shampoo and conditioner which I am totally in love with.
After that I noticed it was lighter than my hair so I dyed the hair with Dark & Lovely's Jet Black and after that I figured with the Makeup Show happening soon I might as well go big or go home so in the end I bleached it and threw some Ion and Beyond the Zone that I purchased at Sally's on it. I used Ion's Color Brilliance Brights in Aqua, Sky Blue, and fushcia and Beyond the Zone's Color Jam in Tripped Up Turquoises and Raspberry Kamikazie.
After dying, bleaching and coloring the hair it was still soft and it took the bleaching and coloring very well. I was surprised that the hair still had most of it's wave patten.
After all that I took my hair to Ty at Extend Your Beauty to have her sew it in. If you are ever in the Ocala, Florida area you really have to check her out, she does amazing hair and just like hair extensions she does everyone's hair doesn't matter if you are White, Asian, Black, Indian, etc. she can take care of you and make sure you look beautiful when you walk out her door, with any means necessary.
Okay to be honest she doesn't put an iron on just anyone's head I just already have a lot of hair so this helps lay the braids flat, I just found it hilarious.
For this installment we went with a versatile sew in so that way I can throw it up in a bun or ponytail.
Star Styles Hair's curly hair, there are so many options!
