I’m actually not new to this hair company. I have purchased twice from dhairboutique and at no point, even up to this minute, are the staffs of the company aware that their product will be reviewed on this blog. Therefore, this review is my complete honest opinion, why wouldn’t it be, I call a spade a spade.
WHAT/WHY: This hair was purchased the first time out of impulse. Another motivating factor was because you-tubers such as @tiarramonet, @prettygyrlangie, @mrsdivalike and @thomasadrianna1 came together with all their hair on POINT!. I believe they wanted to promote @dhairboutique new raw hair line or something of that nature, not exactly sure, but I mean, I was ready to have them beheaded and snatch their weaves hunty!!!. Ok that was a little too much but I fell in lurveee with the texture and bounciness of the hair.
CONCERNS/RESEARCH: At the time of purchase, there were not much reviews on YouTube or black media forum, so it was purchased with my fingers tightly crossed with loads of prayers that I get a “good batch”. You guys know how there’s this notion that YouTube reviewers get a “good batch” while the normal customers (masses) get a “bad batch”. Luckily the hair arrived according to my expectation.
For my very first order, I went for the Filipino straight in lengths of 14/6″, 16/18″, 2 bundles of 18/20″ and a matching closure. The owner claimed that its is 14″ when curled and 16″ when completely straightened out. Really it just felt like something between 15-16″ to me but that’s not a problem since my desired look was achieved after been sewn into a wig. The second order included one more filipino bundle (22/24″) to achieve additional volume to my wig as a personal preference, but trust me 4 will work out just fine. I also got the “raw indian curly wavy” 2(18/20″), 2(22/24″)= 4 bundles and a closure.
First time order…These two pix were the first order of the Filipino Straight. The shorter bundles were thicker and has more body to it but the longer ones were thinner and more likely less than 2oz
My second purchase also came with the same disappointment. I understand that the longer the length the thinner it gets, but i doubt this bundle of hair was up to 2 oz, although her website claimed each bundle is from 3.5 to 3.2 oz, hian! not the bundle I received. I held the 22/24″ from one arm length to the other and the other end of the hair could barely reach my other hand. I am totally displeased and annoyed, considering the price charged for the amount of hair density received….totally unfair to their customers, especially the loyal ones lol but the hair game is serious these days. Celebs and youtubers who dont pay probably get more than we do but whatever
This is all the 2nd order. The pix below is solely going to focus on the Indian Wavy/Curly.
These are two bundles of hair wrapped together & the pix below goes show how two bundles of hair look like 1. Yerp!!! 4 bundles looking like 2 Here is the additional filipino that came with the second order. The luster on this hair finds the perfect balance between a shiny, silky and dull luster
This is all you get for a 22/24″ hair, definitely less than 3oz, much less of the 3.2 to 3.5 claimed on the website
CONS: Alright, the shipping took way too long, that at a point that I had to cancel my order. The owner did have some well-mannered customer service, which made me repurchase the hair. The second time, the same thing happened. There was no status update, no tracking number but with my pleasurable experience with my first order, I decided to exercise some patient and let the hair arrive at God’s own time lol.
Ladies and gentlemen, this hair is not cheap! Their price starts at $120/bundle. The first time I went to the website and saw those figure, omo men, I borrow leg run (I couldn’t have exited that website any faster).
My first thought was hmm, this hair is incredibly too thin for the price, especially the longer lengths. I was stuck between the idea of returning it or getting more bundles. I was a little dissatisfied and annoyed. To be perfectly honest, if you’re buying any length longer than the “16/18” inches, just be prepared to purchase at least 4 bundles. Three bundles will look really stringy unless you plan to leave much of your hair out like the vixen sew in styles.
PROS: Believe me when I tell you guys, I have 99 problems in life but tangling was not close to them, not with this hair at all. This hair was dyed jet black and sewn into a wig so it can be taken out at my convenience. I worked full-time 9 to 5 and then go to school, the next thing was to yank it and threw it anyway it chose to fly to and the next morning it was back on my head. This vicious cycle persisted for about about 4 months before I switched to my sheena hair Emporium. I am yet to condition and treat this hair but it’s still mileage is as good as new hahaha.
The silkiness and softness of this hair is beyond me. I have seen worse hair that comes very brassy with run off strands. The slay-o-meter of this hair really puts other hair out of this kitchen and I can confidently say that this hair is one of the best in the game. The weft of the hair is sewn so tight that air cannot pass through
This review placed so much emphasis on the amount of hair/bundle, which i believe contributed to the thinness of each bundle, not that each strand was think. However, when I started to sew my wig, I did notice that the hair has a lot of body to it, especially when a curl is put in and brushed or tousled out
Excess or aggressive combing/brushing will make this hair shed and considering the way I treated this hair, it should have more shed than it.I got this much shedding from running my hands through when the package first came in. Very impressive because it was not that much shedding.
The luster and texture of this hair is amaze-balls! This hair obeys all the rules and regulations of a curling wand, irons and flexirods. Ohemmgee! the curls can last for weeks and I kid you not. Once its, especially tightly curled, just go get a flat-iron that can heat up to the same degrees in hell to get it completely bone straight. That’s not a problem for me though as I love me some tousled curls.
Volume can be achieved by curling your hair in opposing directions, when you curl rolling the iron to the right, the next curl should be to the left so the curls face each other instead of creating uniformed look and finger detangling will help achieve a certain degree puffiness!
RECOMMENDATION: I recommend this hair ONLY if you can absolutely afford it! I never pay full price for this hair because I signed up for their sales alerts! Although their sale prices are still steep, in my opinion, It’s better than other fly by the night hair that needs sheds like a dog and matte up in the nape of the neck.
This hair is very luxurious and I choose its reserved for occasions considered special to me lol. However, I have resumed it and worn it back to back for the past 4 months with much compliments from even the bae who seems to be tired of my constant addiction to weaves.
OVERALL/RATING:To be very clear, the strands of the hair itself is not thin! the amount of hair your receive per bundle is not much, which makes the hair bundle thin! So it’s a case of quality over quantity. I can’t tell if the hair is worth the splurge or no. I personally find it ridiculously annoying when statements such as “oh my good this hair is expensive but totally worth it” ooze out of people’s mouth. On top wetin! No hair/weave is worth braking your wallet for. Remember most of these hair are purchased for a chunk of change and they pump up the retail prices like there’s no tomorrow.
Bottom Line, it gets a 8 out of 10 from me. The price of this hair is way too much for the amount provided and that’s my only problem.
If you guys have any questions, concerns or doubt about this hair or hopefully some hair you have in mind to purchase, please drop a comment below or email me and I can help do some underground detective work lol. Enjoy your days/nights you guys.
