    My son installed a kinky curly sew in last month for me, I have in 18 bundle, 2 20 inch bundles, and 1/4 of the 16 inch bundle installed (way too much hair but he is extra). This hair is from Ali Annabelle on Ali express for the 4 bundles ( you do not need 4 bundles) I paid $131.52. This hair mimics 3b, 3c hair it isn't a true kinky curly but my hair in the front of my head is slightly looser so its a perfect blend. It having a slightly looser curl made this hair hands down the easiest "kinky"curly hair I have ever worn, I have only washed this hair once (gasp) no matting and the detangling process wasn't hell (gasp). I will be repurchasing this hair again, mainly to try a shorter length, I usually stick to 16-18 inches but I wanted to try something longer. I achieved this wash and go with eco styler. This hair can and will get much bigger.

    I have it installed as Ivy's flip over method with hair out around the entire perimeter so I can have versatile styling options, I think this is my preferred install type super easy to blend,and change up the look. I might even do in and wand curl this hair just to see how it reacts. Purple shirt pic is from a month ago when I just got it installed, and the white shirt is of the hair today (freshly washed and styled) .


    In short I am in love.

    wash and go still wet.jpg And... here's the wash and go (still wet...) I tried that wet liner extreme or whatever, but gels don't work on my hair (except a plain aloe vera gel in a pinch) Went back to Ouidad Heat and Humidity Gel (well it's a gel, but it's REALLY light).

    I prefer the wash and go right now since it's about the same, I guess and it's easier to do.

    I miss my longer hair. Got scalped from below APL to shoulder length.

    I have been itching for a change. So I went to see my stylist this weekend and she hooked me all the way up! I have been wearing my natural hair straight a lot more lately so I decided to cut my hair into a bob so I wouldn't be so hot this summer and it would take less time to straighten. We also did some color for summer. This peak a boo color allows me to really show off the color or hide it depending on where I put my part. I absolutely love it and feel like a new woman. It's amazing what changing your hair can do for you!!

    Sexy cut! Gorgeous hair! Your skin is pretty and you have lovely teeth!

    Hair looking prettier than a Tiffany Taylor doll! This black doll can change her hair from blonde to black. Some of the doll versions have streaks in their hair like your hair. I have always wanted to do this but have not worked up 'the hair courage', yet, to do it.

    Thank you! I just needed a change. My hairstylist was like wth are you doing to make your hair grow so fast. She had cut it really short in January and I was back to past shoulder length. I said Shea Butter! I know you would appreciate that Chicoro! I'm still using my shea too, I took my wrap down this morning and put some shea on it to keep it from reverting. Shea is my holy grail!

    It just looks like it's laying on my head. No style at all. Just like that image of someone wearing a helmet. But thank you. You make me feel better.

    My big head again! I paid 110.00 for blue highlights you can't see! (But I think I still like it. It's better for the stylist to be too conservative than too flamboyant.) Can you see the blue peeking out?

    Good luck to me trying to tell you ana you understanding...

    I gathered all my hair and placed it where I wanted to form a pony. Once I detangled the hair, I created a separate pony in the middle (a pony inside a pony). I clipped that middle section out of the way as I worked on the exterior only.
    Took small section front side and all around one piece by piece and rolled them up like doing tight pin curls all around the lower bun. Then moved to the middle section and did the same thing.
    My hair is about WL so I had a bit to roll up and they all just stacked on top of each-other. Does that help?!

    Maybe I should do a video! Teehee

    ^^. Perfect explanation @Fine 4s

    I’m so style challenged, I’ve just been doing wash n go’s in a puff by the end of the week
    I find the Africa pride moisture miracles gives nice results (used in pic). Today I’m going to finish up my photogenic jar under my sink. I’ll post later
