Product Review : I &K Human Hair Silky Weave ( Dark Ash Brown) from Hairtrade.com

Saturday, August 18, 2012
If you have been an avid reader of my blog , you would have noticed the Hairtrade Blogger Partnership Badge towards the top right of my page . This program allows me to receive one of their wonderful products every 3 months to share my views with all you "Haute" people. This month's product is the "I & K Human Hair Silky Weave in Dark Ash Brown . I picked this particular hair because I've never used a silky weave before and i really wanted to see what the Texture was like as well as the wear-ability and i was also intrigued by the name of the colour :-)

( Hair packaging in long box)

The hair was packaged nicely in this "long box" and came in a plastic protective bag with a gold paper base bearing the company hair and logo .

I chose the 14 " I&K Human Hair Silky Weave (Dark Ash Brown) . This hair comes in 3 lengths 14 " (G.D.P -34.99) , 18" (G.D.P 49.99) , 22 (G.D.P 54.99)  all prices Inc. Vat. It is made of 100 % human  hair and can be cut , colored , straightened and curled. This product took two weeks to get to Jamaica from the U.K , but I'm sure the time will differ depending on where you are in the world of course .

The hair comes in a myriad of colors from light to dark or vice versa depending on where you would fall on the color spectrum , there is a hair for everybody.


The Texture

I've always heard people talking about their "dream hair" , and i can now say .... "I've found my dream hair" . The texture of this hair is soooo soft and silky. It feels like really healthy freshly processed hair . The thing i like the most about this hair is that it doesn't need a lot of product to make it look good . I did a regular sew in and leaving out some of my own hair and it blended really nicely with my own hair . I was actually really scared to try this texture because I've stop processing my own hair ( apart from my leave- out" that i flat iron) . I was scared that I'd have that nice silky " goddess " hair in the back , then at the front people would be able to tell where my own hair stopped  ... but it blends really well . Another thing i love about the hair was that i did not come with that "factory smell" , you know that weird plastic , chemical smell? It smelled like ... hair ... really clean normal hair.

Look how Pretty and Silky that is

I like the fact that the hair came with a "Hair extensions Aftercare Guide and Hair Extensions FAQ . This is great because it helps people who are just starting out with hair to get the best out of their purchase. Also included in this guide is a Styling Hair Extensions sections which gives tips on how to style the hair for best results .


Because I'm 5'1 the hair is like "boob length" or a little over and from the back it rests a few inches above my waist.
It holds curls really well even without product.








Tangling and Shedding

This hair gives minimal shedding. I got this hair installed on Saturday which makes it 7 days and i literally only saw like 6 strands from that time ... NO JOKE. I was wondering if this hair was  ... real ...lol . I pulled on it and did the "finger comb through" and it was all good . As for the Tangling ... none ... it doesn't tangle ( this is a 100 % tangle free name and it does meet those standards). I put this hair through "The Gauntlet" . I went on the road on Saturday (which was really hot btw) , i was on the road for like 5 hours with the hair down and it just stayed in place . After that , i went to do some cleaning , pulled the hair up and it was good . I usually also tie my hair at night and pull my hair in a bun ... ( that is my ultimate test for hair) When i let down the hair ... it was still straight !! There wasn't that weird "flip" or "wave in the hair , it was just straight and silky .



Recommendations 

I would recommend getting two packs of  hair if you plan to do a full head weave , because of its silky texture , i find that it's not really alot.




Also, the hair color was a lot lighter than it was on the website. I'm guessing this has to do with the P.C Display and the Resolution setting . For this , i would recommend ordering a sample first so that you can see how it looks . In artificial lighting it looked like a really dark brown , but in the sunlight it looked like a dark brown with a golden "ashy" look to it .
