So, as soon as I got these, I put them immediately, by myself. Super easy to do with a couple of large mirrors to work with. I have very light platinum blonde hair. It’s just shy of being completely white. So I was worried the hair would be too dark or too yellow to work with. However, I washed and conditioned with purple shampoo and conditioner and then I toned with the same toner I use on my hair. It made a HUGE difference. My friend was worried it wouldn’t blend because my hair is so light.
But she was amazed when I showed off my hair. It matches perfectly. The hair texture is similar to my overporcessed hair. Not like it feels over processed, but it’s not thick strands of hair, like what I’m used to when I buy dark brown hair extensions. It’s thinner stands of hair that match well with my hair at this color. So it’s been a few days now and it does tangle and shed. Not really bad, but it hasn’t been in long.
I’m not sure if the tangling is due to the smaller hair shaft or that I have been in a car a lot in the last few days driving across the state to visit family and my seatbelt ruffles up my hair. I will say though, even hair I bought that was cuticle aligned, virgin, expensive hair still tangled and shed. I am happy with this hair. It holds curl well, took color well. Looks great. Makes me feel better about myself.
