I had this hair installed March 13th. It is beauty supply hair. I may purchase a few fancy bundles next time, depends on how much I like this sew in. I purchased 1B 10" and 12". I also purchased a color to add a little pop.
I washed and conditioned my hair prior to install. The stylist used braiding hair as she braided up my hair to help fortify the braids for several reasons. The extension hair was then sewn on. It wasn't tight at all, snug but not uncomfortable. She states that I should come back every three weeks and not every two weeks so as not to loosen up the install. I will use my own discretion because I work out.
Sensationnel Premium Now Human Hair 1B 10" & 12" Straight
Single weft for bangs color 30, wanted 33, but couldn't find it.
I am very pleased with her work. I will definitely be going back for another install this summer prior to my vacation. Something loose and wavy because I plan to have fun in the sun and I don't want to be bothered with straight hair. I love my hair curly in the summer easy to camouflage roots with the heat and humidity.
Night-time routine so far, I use flexi-rods at night and tight down with scarf. It took some getting used to sleeping in them, but I sleep just fine now. I try not to apply anything to my leave out just yet, but still pretty fresh so we'll see. I just don't want it to get oily.
This is my first legit sew-in so if there are any blending suggestions and leave-out tips feel free to leave them. I am also watching YouTube videos to get ideas.
