So here’s the second transition hairstyle I did from Jan 10 – March 10…
Hair – Premium Now
Colour – 2 on the top, 1b on the bottom
Ratings (out of 5):
- Look – 4
- Maintenance – 2
- Longevity – 2
- Results – 1
- AVERAGE – 2.25
Okay so when I did this hair, it was uber exciting because I’d never had a fringe before or a weave for that matter! I was reassure that because it was natural hair (premium), it could last 2 months. LIES! After the third week, I was ready to take this thing off! It looked great for just about 3 weeks (hence a rating of 4). After that it started shedding and becoming matted etc. I found I had to keep straightening it as well. That’s why I’ve given a low rating for maintenance and longevity. The results when I took out this hair (bearing in mind I was VERY careful), is that my hair began to break even more so than before. I wondered why, until I realised that because of all the combing and pulling etc. when the hair became matted, it strained my actual hair. I honestly should have taken a picture of the back track when I took it out – I could count the hairs on that thing!
I didn’t have a very good experience with weave and as a result, i probably won’t be getting another one done in the near future!
