One of the most realistic, relaxed look, human hair out there!
on March 4, 2012
I've been weaving hair for about 10 years now, and I have been on a search to find the most realistic hair weave texture that matched relaxed hair. A brand that would have the body and movment of Oprah's semi-relaxed mane. First there was the Motown tress yaki weave. That hair was the some of the most realistic human hair on the market (at the time). It had a perfectly relaxed/course texture and plenty of thickness, (Discontinued). Then I moved on the ModelModel Clair Hair. Again, beautiful relaxed texture, but not as much body as Motown Tress, very, very thin wefts, (Discontinued). Then I found a small hair store on 34th street in New York City that had a private brand called WeaveMax Yaki. It had the lovely soft permed texture my clients desired and the body of both the Motowntress and Clair hair but there were many color problems. The #1 was really a 1B, and 1B was more like a 2, (Discontinued). Currently there are three beauty store brands that seem to come close to what my clients demand and that would be the Janet New Yaki/King Yaki and the BobbyBoss Natural Yaki. The Janet is wonderful hair, but sheds horribly and the Bobby Boss Natural Yaki, well, is just a little too pricey for my clients. Then one day I discovered The Outre SuperNatural First Lady. Outré finally got it just right! Unfortunately, the first Lady only comes in 10 inches (pre-bumped). The relaxed texture, shine, manageability, and thickness are so perfectly natural you won't know where your hair ends and the weave begins! The hair holds a curl amazingly well, is pre-cut and feels so soft. Honestly, if you are looking for an affordable all in one hair weave kit that looks completely natural and blends with your relaxed African American hair texture for an affordable price, then the Outré First Lady is the best way to go! One pack will do an entire head and it even comes with a fairly decent closure piece. But remember what I said from past experience. Try it and stock up now, before you guessed it, it becomes...(Discontinued!!!!)
