KinkyCurlyYaki Hair Review
Hi Ladies, please take a moment to watch this update video BEFORE purchasing this hair. I’ve had a change of heart:
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.
As 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
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.
I’ve only had the hair installed for a week, so stay tuned into my Youtube channel (HERE) where I will post an updated review after the hair has been installed for 6 weeks. But so far? I’m in L-O-V-E and haven’t experienced any matting or shedding.
What are your tips for maintaining your natural hair when wearing extensions?
