KENYA MOORE INSPIRED HAIR COLOUR AND RHOVIRGIN HAIR UPDATE

Hey guys, I hope everyone is having a stress free summer unlike me! Between this sudden heat, moving house and sorting out all the paper work that comes with that, updating my eBay store ( advance search by seller- slimtings1) http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/slimtings1/m.html?_ipg=50&_sop=12&_rdc=1 , trying to start a wig making business and making plans for next year ( so excited!) , I am stressed out! But I found time to relax and do one of the things I am most passionate about- hair! I know am late on this hair colour band wagon (btw keeping up to date is stress in its self! I have a new brand hair review coming soon!) But I have been able to finally change my rho virgin Cambodian hair into this colour style, so this post will be an update to the hair and show and tell post! (Killing two birds with one stone!)

So I will start with the hair colour and dive into the update for my rho virgin tresses!

KENYA MOORE INSPIRED HAIR

This is the fabulous Kenya Moore from real housewives of Atlanta.

And her even more fabulous hair. RPGshow wigs came out with a wig that is inspired by her hair colour and it looks really good. http://www.rpgshow.com/kenya-moore-stock-full-lace-human-hair-wig-wavy-clw064s-p-5138.html Prices start from $309.00 if you want to know how to achieve a similar look for less than £10.00 and NO BLEACHING then stay tuned.

So the hair colour is pretty easy to achieve. It looks like a reverse ombre with the top part lighter and the bottom part darker right?

WHAT I DID

Simple. Use my trusted, tried and proven dark and lovely hair dye( in particular the 372 blonde colour). You can check it out on amazon >>>  2 boxes of that comes in at £5.98 ( £2.99 each, however depending on your location it could be £3.99). Divided my hair into two. Applied the dye per instructions and left it to process for about one hour. ( it says to leave it on between 30mins- 45mins but I had previously dyed the hair jet black so everyone knows jet black hair WITHOUT bleaching is the most difficult to lift!)

And boom! Hair colour greatness! (lol) I got this lovely golden brown/caramel/blonde colour (p.s I suck at description like literally) Tip which I think everyone knows- when choosing a hair colour between two shades, always pick the one that is a bit bright because 9 times out of 10 you won’t get the exact box match. So by picking a brighter one, your chances of lifting your hair especially darker hair are increased! ( I hope that makes sense)

RHOVIRGIN HAIR UPDATE

If you want a first impressions on the hair and her contact details >> http://wp.me/p1uQOd-hz . I have had this hair since January HOWEVER  I have only worn it for 2 months in total ( on and off- but if I was to add up all the times I have had it installed then yes, 2 months)

WHY?

Well, I don’t know how I feel about this hair. For the amount of time I have had it and its performance I must say I am a bit disappointed. So in the pictures above you can see the hair freshly curled in the morning.  Due to tangling especially in the back and matting, I put the hair in a braid by the afternoon to reduce that, because I could not run my fingers through it as you as see in this picture.

This picture I took at the end of the day and you can see the bottom half of the hair is tangled. I could not get a better picture due to lighting but the hair was matt too. It felt like it was bunching in the nape area.

It holds some curl. I curled the hair with tresemme 2805U volume tong (32mm) the curl on the longer lengths just fell out as soon as I brushed them. The short lengths however managed to hold the curl.

I don’t know. This hair reminds me so much of my aliexpress hair (link >> http://wp.me/p1uQOd-hm) in terms of performance versus longevity.

Let me know if you have had this texture form the seller and any problems. Maybe I got a bad batch. (but I do know people who got a different texture hair and have the same problem)

Anyway guys I hope you have a blessed week! and a good hair week too! Until next time. bye
