    Ooh. I've just seen the updates on kinky hair. I'm interested but I'm still not sure. It all looks time consuming for me but I do like the results. I'll keep an eye out on the reviews.

    saying that, maybe she should send some to natural hair youtubers to review them.

    No, she's offering those who have to wait to late January a discount on the new product. I'm not particularly interested though.

    If I ever purchase from this bunch again it would be much later, once they're better experienced, have proper videos and have shown to simply be reliable. It still remains to be seen, in my opinion.

    So after seeing all the latest activity on the CWK Girls Instagram page (www.http://instagram.com/cwk_girls) last night, I proceeded to the website and saw that the plates and more are actually being sold now. Maybe I missed the announcement on LHCF or something. There are videos and tons of pictures. I am just in shock and needed to share this with someone. Take a look for yourselves! :shocked: :perplexed

    P.S. I'll stick to my TRUSTY Hourglass Rollers for now. :yep:

    I'm not interested in straightening my hair anymore so I'm glad I got my refund. I won't be purchasing the plates either.

    I ordered the relaunched plates and tried them out yesterday.

    Pros:

    Very lightweight

    Decreased drying time. I sat under the dryer for about 35-40 minutes and my hair was only slightly damp in a few places (I have low porosity hair, which takes forever to dry usually)

    Stretched my hair pretty good. I have natural 4b/c hair and it was what I imagine a blow out would look like (I've never had a blow out on my natural hair) I didn't take pics because I'm 33 weeks pregnant and HUGE lololol. Next time I use them I'll take pics though, I promise.

    VERY easy to use (even if you're not so good with roller sets like myself)

    Cons:

    Not very sturdy, 3 of the little purple plates broke while attaching to the black plates

    Not nearly enough plates in one set for anyone with hair longer than SL (I do plan to order 2 more sets)

    Products used (if that matters to anyone): PBN MMM and QB Honeybush gel (discontinued).

    Notes: I didn't smooth my hair onto the plates like instructed because I just couldn't be bothered to look for my combs (I seriously look and feel every bit of this pregnancy). Next time I use them (once I get more plates) I will do as instructed and smooth it out. I still got decent results just using my hands to smooth.

    Bottom line: I like them.

    Beany, how long did it take to install the plates?

    I'm low po too. I've given up on all wet sets because of the drying time but if these dry faster...

    I don't remember exactly how long it took, but my arms weren't hurting when I finished (unlike my roller set attempts). Keep in mind I didn't follow "instructions" (smoothing hair on plates), it would probably take longer doing it the "right" way.

    MileHighDiva - I wasn't ran off. I'm used to the LHCF drama. I said what I had to say to the owner of that thread. Was I surprised that people chimed in? Of course not. Am I surprised that this ended this way? Of course not. However, I thought I heard that CWK refunded all investors' monies & has a new product out. I could be wrong though. Thanks for thinking of me...

    I ordered the relaunched plates as well and used them for the first time yesterday. My experience was very similar to Beany. I have shoulder length hair and I used nearly all the plates, so anyone with APL+ hair would need at least two sets. I installed the plates and sat under my hooded dryer for about 20 minutes. My hair was completely dry (I have high porosity hair) and the results were like a really good blowout. I probably could get better results if I use setting lotion and a brush and make smaller sections, but I need to order more plates. I also broke two of the purple plates while installing.

    Overall, I'm happy with the plates and will purchase another set.

    I actually took some pics of me using them on IG. I also posted a short video showing the results. My IG name is the same as my lhcf name.

    They stretch the curls very well. I didn't use setting lotion or sit under a dryer. Although, I do think that next time I will, just to see how straight it can get. But with my APL hair, I have to order another set.

    BUT I recently got an email from them to take a survey on what I thought of the product. In return, they are giving a 50% discount (from the first 500 purchasers). I hope I read that correctly. Lemme go check. *runs to check*

    I ordered my 2nd set of plates late thursday/early friday morning and i received my package Monday. I was surprised it arrived so quickly. I plan to order at least 1 more set.

    I wish I could say I was going to set my hair soon, but idk. 36 weeks pregnant and I just don't have the energy to do much of anything to my hair.
