    Please keep in mind that all of the below is Pre-LHCF…so yea = )

    Please include what kind of hair was used: I used Outre Remy Velvet in 12 and 14 inches color #2

    How much hair was left out: My stylist left out a horseshoe at the top and my edges. I had a side part and NO versatility, that was the one thing I hated about this weave (couldn't change up the part).

    What pattern was your hair braided..vertical, horizontal, or around: I cannot recall my braid pattern I think it was a beehive..not sure. What I can say is that the braids were very night and compact. The weave laid so flat!!
    (this was the VERY thing I love about this weave. It laid SO flat). Also, my stylist used a net.

    How many packs where used: I used a little under 2 packs. All of the 14" on the bottom and 3/4 of the 12" at top. My stylist also went back in and layered the MESS out of it so that it blended naturally with my hair.

    How you maintained it: Every 2 weeks I washed and deep conditioned (using Pantene products). I had this weave when I was relaxed, so I would relax the front and the edges; for the life of the weave, I think I relaxed 3 times. On my wash days, I would do a thorough flat iron and just kept it in a wrap by cross-wrapping at night. I didn’t put any product in it outside of shampoo and conditioner. Also, I took care of the maintainence myself; just went to my stylist for the install and cut.

    and how long it last: I got this weave July 26, 2008 and took it out November 14, 2008…so 3 1/2 months and could have gone maybe another 15 to 30 days more. This was my very first sew-in weave and I didn't know that 3 1/2 months was a long time....

    HTH

    ETA: I have to look for the actual pic..my bad. More to come...

    meesch !!!!!! OMG I love that hair! I need more specifics on the name of that. Wagmans curly? deep curly? How many inches? That's my next hair purchase right there! Also, are you natural, relaxed, or transitioning?

    gosh... that was over a year ago, probably two actually, and since then i've given up sew ins... even though if i don't get a better handle on my hair i may have to go back :nono: but i was natural then. the length was probably whatever length is before 23 inches. if i am remembering correctly, 98.9% sure i am, it was "natural curly"... which would be this, i think

    http://www.wagmanhair.com/product_details.php?id=113

    i remember my sew ins running bout $500, and it was $200 for the install, so i'm thinking the bundles of hair were around $150 apiece... i can tell you for sure it was the "real" virgin hair, not the perfectress line.
