Hi guys, so a few months ago, I got hair extensions and I'm trying out this "REMI" hair that my stylist recommended I use. Here in Tucson we have two hair supply stores that I absolutely love shopping at, WABA HAIR SUPPLY and LEE HAIR SUPPLY. They carry the brand 'Live' Brazilian Keratin Remi 100% Human Hair Yaki Straight by SENSATIONNEL® and I thought I loved it! I bought 2 packs of it, a 10 inch and a 12 inch. Initially wanted to go with an 16 inch and a 18 inch. But after having the length I have in Arizona I realized I would have been too hot. However with the amount the bought I ended up not using the whole amount. I could have for more volume but again...way too hot.
As for styling, I feel like it has to curl at a high temperature but if I play with too much It doesn’t keep it style for very long. It’s initially incredibly soft but after a while I think it’s taking a slight oily feel but then my hair tendsto be slightly dry so Imay not be used to the feeling. In later however, it felt dry or dry to me even more that my hair.There’s so much shedding that I had to vacuüm my apartment so much more than usual. However, I found a video on how to reduce some of it with using super glue on the weft which seems pretty tedious giving HOW MUCH IT SHED! Not only that but it started to tangle. I tried everything possible short of carrying a brush with me everywhere I went. Just walking around the mall for an hour caused my hair to tangle so I’m so glad that I didn’t get the 16 inch and 18 inch because good lord I don’t think I could have dealt with all of this.
ONE MORE THING!!! The brand is pretty reasonable in price for it being made with real human Remi hair although the longer you get the more it’ll cost; so I guess if your making a wig or if you desperately need some human hair or whatever. Would I use this hair again? Absolutely not. The next time I decided to use extensions, I’ll definitely do more research into the reviews. In hindsight, I haphazardly bought this after desperately looking for hair that would be able to curl.After all the shedding and tangling it looked less and less natural. It was disappointing because I was incredibly happy with the first installment. The woman who installed it did a good job but it seemed to all go to waste. I have to say it was really nice have long hair especially when I wore my favourite beanie. Now I have my ugly short hair again, so I have to save up again to buy better quality hair and to have my stylist sew it in.
