Show & Tell: Indian Remy Kinky Curly

Don't get too excited... this hair is not mine :(
I am making a 3/4 wig for a good friend who asked if I could make one for her. She was inspired by Teyana Taylor's hair and the hair is Indian Remy Kinky Curly in a Color 1B (16, 18 and 20 inches)... you all know I have this hair on my 2012 hair wishlist so to say I am jealous is an understatement. I can't wait to see the finished results on her.
Using the chart below I would say the texture is a mix of 3c and 4a curls..i think.
Here's a picture of the 14 inch Bundle:
This hair is making me consider postponing my Filipino hair purchase. I really want to try the Filipino hair first because it is different and I haven't worn straight hair in years. This hair will be perfect for spring/summer.

UPDATE: See the 3/4 Wig I made with this hair HERE

Virgin Brazilian 3/4 Wig-One Month Review

This Brazilian Hair 3/4 wig was initially installed in Dec 2011.I got so many compliments throughout my vacation and no one still believes I can actually do my own hair.
NO HEAT was used to style the hair for the 3 weeks I was away and I traveled with only bendy rollers so that is all I used to curl the hair.The only product I used on it was Argan Oil.The only issue I had was with the bangs. Styling bangs with bendy rollers is tricky and most Youtube Gurus use a flat iron to style their bangs. So i ended up wearing the hair to the side of my face not full on in my face.

No heat at all!!
One month later and I am still in love with this hair :D I have taken this 3/4 wig off three times throughout the month to care for my real hair. I love the versatility of 3/4 wigs.

One of my main goals this year is to learn to style hair better. I suck at using a flat iron to curl my hair. I am pretty good with bendy rollers and I am satisfied with the curls I get from using bendy rollers but I really want to improve my heat styling skills.

Before I started making 3/4 wigs, I could not do hair at all...AT ALL.. not even cornrows. I am still learning to do cornrows and the good thing is that the cornrows do not have to be neat because no one is going to see it.  If I can do it, then you can so I encourage you try.

So whats next for this hair? I am doing the Ombre look as soon as I have the time.

Have a great weekend dolls x

New Year, New Hair

Happy New Year To Everyone! 
I wish you a year filled with success, peace, joy and prosperity. Whatever your goals are for 2012, press forward, stay positive and work hard.
Have a fantastic 2012! xx

This year I have many hair plans.... as usual. I have worn Brazilian hair for the past year and I love it but I am looking to try something new. I recently saw a Youtube video from a compnay called Jadore Hair about filipino hair and it looks fab so that is definitely on my hair wishlist.I have also been drooling over Teyana Taylor's hair for ages so a  Kinky Curly hairstyle is surely on my wishlist as well.

What I know for sure is that my next hairstyle is the ombre look... Finally!!!
