HerGivenHair Review: Kinky Straight Blow Out Hair Weaves

If you need something with a natural look and easy to maintain this is most defiantly the hair for you. I am Queen of protective styling simply because of the busy, unpredictable schedule that I have during the week. I am currently working two jobs, one as an after school program aid and the other as a (licensed) hairstylist. I absolutely love doing hair but after working usually 12 hours, 6 days a week the last thing I want to do is my own hair.

I am currently transitioning for the second time (I was natural for 4 years previously). I am 10 months post texturizer and have about 4 inches of natural hair and about 6 inches of texlaxed hair. Dealing with two textures is THE STRUGGLE!!!! But I refuse to cut my hair short (looks great on some, just not my thing).

I love weave simply for the versatility. I prefer more of a textured look over the more popular silky straight hair, the more natural looking the better. Although I love natural textures they are usually a hassle to deal with and high maintenance. About two years ago I tried my first kinky straight hair and it has quickly become one of my favorites! I’ve tried hair from a couple different companies and HerGivenHair is tied for my number one spot. Most kinky straight bundles lose their texture after you apply heat and become very hard to blend with my natural hair.

Ok, so let me start at the beginning, I received the hair and the packaging was too cute! I love that it was in a box so when I take it out I have somewhere to store it until my next install. In the box I received to bundles of the kinky straight blown out weaves in a 16 and 18 inch. Each bundle came in its own plastic baggie, aside of the hair there was a very informative pamphlet giving information about the company, other textures offered and hair care tips as well as recommended products.

After unboxing I washed the hair using Shea Moisture products that I would normally use on my own hair, sealed the wefts, and let the bundles air dry overnight. I didn’t experience any significant shedding, probably less than 20 strands. The hair does come in a natural color and I color my hair jet black so I went back and deposited a jet black rinse on the top half of the bundles just to make blending easier and give it a subtle ombre effect. After coloring and drying the hair looks just like it did when I unboxed it!

I installed the next day because I was too excited! I love new hair! I decided to wear a side part and leave my perimeter out so that I could pull my hair into a ponytail/bun. The hair has a low luster and the hair was soft and very fluffy. I usually install at least 3 bundles of hair because I like big/thick hair. But trust and believe 2 bundles is probably all you will need with this hair, it is very full. It was full enough to look natural but not over the top full to be overbearing.

Blending with my hair with these bundles weren’t as easy as I thought it would be. In all honesty blending my hair with itself is a task because of the two textures. For the first week I flat ironed my hair on a low setting to blend and that worked pretty well for me. The second week I used the Beautiful Textures Naturally Straight Texture Manageability System and that helped A LOT, its kept my roots from reverting back so quickly. blow out kinky straight 4c hair

I’ve had the hair in now for two weeks and haven’t had no problems with it, no shedding or tangling. I’ve worn my hair straight, curled, did a braid out (came out amazing!), used flexi rods and also worn buns. My nightly routine simply usually flexi rods or I just put it up in a bun and put a bonnet on. I’ve gotten a lot if compliments and inquiries from my clients and a few people even thought it was my hair when I wore the braid out. I tried to do a lot because I wanted to give a detailed review and have pictures to show.

All in all, this hair is A1! I’ll probably wear this hair for another 3-4 weeks (about 6 weeks total). I can see myself getting a few more installs out of this hair and then I’ll probably make clip-ins or have it as extra hair to add into my buns.
