When looking to purchase virgin hair many women now turn to the merchant website Aliexpress. I, like many of you am one of those women. I can’t help but love to find quality products priced at a wholesale rate.
While searching for some new hair to try out I came across this vendor named Ms. Lula. Ms. Lula specializes in virgin unprocessed hair. This vendor offers many origins including brazilian and peruvian in addition to an array of hair textures to suite your hair styling needs.
Because I’m a creature of habit I decided to go with the brazilian body wave. Upon its arrival via DHL I was definitely pleased with its packaging.
Each bundle was individually wrapped in its on plastic covering. I also enjoyed that they wrapped each bundle in a pink bow! Its the simple details that get me. Enough about cosmetics, lets talk about this hair!
DID THE HAIR HAVE A SMELL?
This hair did not have the infamous “corn chip” smell associated with Aliexpress hair. It did have a slight “chemical” type of smell. However it was nothing to over barring that an at home wash and condition couldn’t fix – and it did!
WERE THE WEFTS SINGLE OR DOUBLE?
Each bundle was double wefted. There were no signs of grey hairs or red or blue threading.
DESCRIBE THE LUSTER/MOVEABILITY
This hair has a low to medium luster. Because it is brazilian the luster is true to its origin. The hair also moves seamlessly. I had no issues running my hands through the hair. When straightened it lays flat but has movement, when curled it bounces and flows easily.
CAN THIS HAIR BE COLORED
ABSOLUTELY! I performed a small patch test to see if it would lift and it did. Although I do not typically color my own installations its safe to say that this hair will color for you. I do recommend as with all coloring practices, to follow the hair coloring with a deep conditioning treatment.
DID THE HAIR GO BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL PATTERN AFTER WASHING?
The short answer is no. After washing, it returned to a very faint curl pattern but those deep ripples in the hair didn’t exist anymore. This is a tell tell sign that this hair products pattern is STEAM PROCESSED. Steam processing is a method used to give a hair origin a different texture or “pattern” to mimic that of another origin. Because I am aware of this I usually do not have a problem with steam processing. So long as the integrity of the hair is still in tact.
WHAT WERE THE SIZE OF THE BUNDLES/HOW MANY WILL I NEED?
In comparison to other hair companies on Aliexpress, I would have to say that this companies hair is the smallest of the bundles I’ve received. I purchased 3 bundles and a closure. Although this was more than enough hair for a complete wig, if you like for your hair to be very full I’d suggest purchasing 4 bundles.
WHERE THE LENGTHS ACCURATE?
Although I did not do a length check, I would say that the bundles did seem a little short. However, the closure unit was true to length. I would suggest ordering a few inches longer than you normally would.
HOW WAS THE CLOSURE?
The closure measurements were 4×4 in diameter 12 inches in length.This closure was a “free parting” lace closure. I would also like to note that the closure did properly match the the texture of the hair bundles. One issue I had with the closure was it appeared to have sparse hairs that would stick up at the top of the closure. I fix this issue I used holding spray to tame the frazzled hairs.
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS VENDOR?
I am happy that thus far my experience with this hair overall has been a good one. With the exception of a few issues, I say its worth trying out. It doesn’t hurt that this hair has to be the most affordable I’ve ever purchased. Because of that I am happy with my experience. I do plan on purchasing more from this vendor because of these very reasons.
Ms. Lula also has a 7 day money back guarantee. Which I feel is AMAZING and really hard to find with many hair vendors. Especially those who sale overseas. Keep in mind that you will only receive a refund if you DO NOT receive your order OR the order was not as described to you.
In addition to the money back policy, Ms. Lula also offers hair samples to those who would like to see the hair before making a complete purchase. Click this link to see your sampling options.
