My 2nd Sew In Experience

The hair was purchased from Rosa Hair Products on Aliexpress. I purchased a 14-16-18 Malaysian Body wave for $136 with free shipping. I can honestly say that this hair was pretty good for the price, but there are a few pros and cons about the hair. Of course the price is really good for three bundles although I only used two.

Pros: 

- NO SHEDDING ! Omg I can tell a big difference from my first sew in (which I used Bobbi Boss Remi) to now. There was minimal to none it was amazing to me because my first sew in I had shedding like CRAZY! I felt "oh maybe it was because I had cut the wefts" but no. I cut the wefts for
this hair as well and minimal.

- Very natural looking. Although this is not yaki texture my leave out was very easy to blend with the hair. It did not look as if it were "weave" at least from the people that I spoke to. They actually believed it was my hair. 

- Of course the price was very good. Especially for someone that's on a budget.

- Holds curls very well. It lasted for at least 3 days beautifully 


Cons: 
- The Body wave never came back. I was hoping that after washing the weave I will get the natural body wave that it claimed the hair had. But it wouldn't dry into a body wave just straight

- The drying process is ridiculously long! I would sit under a hooded dryer for at least 25-30 minutes to dry my braids but to also dry the weave. When I would turn it off the weave will still be damp. This happen to me the first time I also washed the hair. It took over an hour for the bundles to have been dried. 

- The smell. I had thought my creme of nature product had done the trick but it ended up coming back. Although the smell is not horrible it was rather faint and it was just annoying. 



Also these are the two products that I had used to keep my braids moisturized. The Curls Lavish Curl Moisturizer felt like it was doing a pretty good job. I did not like how it was more of a straight spray then a mist like the Creme of Nature. I used the Curls three times a week and I did not use an oil.

The Creme of Nature I used once a week just as an added protein. I cant really tell if this combo was good for my hair. Being that it was my first time using the Curls and I know the Creme of Nature was good on my hair when I had it all out. My take down will be on Saturday which means I had this in for just a month and two weeks. I will also post on how my second take down will be.

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length.
