 Original Review

Yes, ladies, I have discovered the hair put on this earth by the natural hair Gods and she goes by the name of KinkyCurlyYaki.

I took a VERY long break from wearing extensions only to discover that my hair, actually, prefers to be left alone. Moisture, little product, and low manipulation are my three musts for maintaining natural hair length. That being said, I needed a break. A big break.

But here was my problem: I didn’t want to install hair that would require me to use heat to blend it with my own hair.  Between postpartum shedding and hormone fluctuations, my hair can no longer tolerate flat iron heat, like, not even a little bit. I was 100% after a very natural-looking installation.

kinkycurlyyaki-afro-hairAs you can see, this hair is almost virtually undetectable from my own hair (Click HERE to see pics of my natural hair). And I’ve managed this almost seemless blending by doing the following tools:

1. Wet leave out| 2. Apply a liberal glop of Ecostyler gel|3. Brush  leave out down with a hard bristle brush|4. Tie it down with a scarf

kinkykurlyyaki-weave-reviewI also used a few bobby pins to hold my leave-out in place. But other than that, with the right hair, it’s pretty easy.

KinkyCurlyYaki sells a variety of textures including straight hair, a looser kinky curly texture, and the texture I’m wearing, which is KinkyCurly Afro starting at $112 per bundle. When it arrives, it actually has a really tight curl, perfect for girls with 4a-4c curls.

As you can see, the hair stretches nicely from it’s original tightly curly texture to a looser curl by simply too strand twisting the hair and applying Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

      1. The hair was pretty good but I placed an order for clip-ins and they sent me the wrong order. I also paid for a shipping and handling for 2-3 business days and it took almost 2 weeks to get to me. I then e-mailed the company and the person e-mailing me from the company tried to tell me that what they meant by 2-3 business days was after they processes the order, then it would take 2-3 business days to get to me. The description did not say that when I checked out and paid extra for it to get to me in 2-3 business days. So I mentioned that to her in my following e-mail and then asked for a refund. The lady then told me me to send the hair back and she will see if she can give me my money back.

        Long story short, I never received the clip-ins or my refund. I highly recommend that if you want professionalism, go somewhere that will treat your customer service like you deserve.
