Virgin Hair Review| Barlow's Mane•




BARLOW'S MANE






Hey Dolls!

So I'm finally getting to do my review on this beautiful hair from Barlow's Mane. They are a US based Virgin Hair Company which specialise in all origins of Virgin hair, including Brazilian, Malaysian and Peruvian. They also sell Closures.

 I got 2 bundles of Brazilian Body Wave in the inches 18" and 18". 

One thing I must say about this company is their customer service is very good. They always give very fast email replies and are always polite, which is great!


Delivery & Packaging 
This hair came sooooo fast. It came in just 3 days all the way from the US to the UK (where I live), by DHL. I honestly didn't think it would come so fast because usually my packages from America take YEARS.
It was also safely packaged to avoid damage.

First Impressions of the Hair
The hair had such a pretty wave to it, I could run my hands through it and literally get no shedding or tangles. It came in a 1b/ natural brown color which is a perfect match for my hair. Another thing I noticed were the wefts which were quite thick and well constructed. 

Making my U-part Wig

To make my u-part wig I used this weaving net which I purchased from my local beauty supply store/hair shop. It has adjustable straps for maximum comfort and I just find it the easiest to work with. For most of the u-part I used the fold over method however, as I got closer to the top of the wig I did have to cut a few tracks just to make sure it layed properly. The fold over method it also great as it does give your wigs more volume. 
I left some of my hair out of course for my leave out. 




I did wash the hair before sewing it down using my Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner ( it smells so goood) and let it air dry. The hair has the prettiest wave to it after it has air dryed honestly, it's so soft and it looks full.


When installing the u-part I simply sew around the edges all the way around to secure it. This is not a must. You can always add wig combs if you wish. 

Tangling and Shedding 

Guys, trust me when I say this hair hardly sheds. Although I did cut some of my wefts, barely 2 stands of hair will come out when I'm brushing it.
Also, I never get any issues with tangling or matting at all.

How I Style The Hair

I usually curl my hair using medium sized flexi rods. They work best for me as I do prefer I tighter curl. I do this overnight and take them out in the morning, brush the hair out abit using my paddle brush and it gives me a nice curl/wave. 

The only problem I find with styling is my leave out. Now, you guys know I'm 100% natural. Sometimes my hair feels like blending, sometimes it doesn't *sigh*. And because it's been fairly hot in the UK these past few days, the humidity will have my hair shrinking up no matter how much I straighten it. I even went out to buy the Kera Care Wax Stick as I heard it's heaven for us natural girls and our leave out.



But, I'm not quite sure how I feel abit it yet or maybe I'm using it wrong? Who knows, but I'll  keep you guys updated and maybe do a review. I am enjoying it as an edge control though.

So.. I'm still trying to figure out this whole leave out situation, next time I will definatly be getting a closure lol.

Anyway, back to Barlow's Mane..  Putting curls in the hair does gives it more volume. I mean I only used two bundles and it looks much fuller. It could surely pass for 3. But if you're someone who likes very full hair like I usually do I would go for more bundles. 
Honestly, I think 4 bundles would look AMAZE!! Very full and very luscious. I probably will order 2 more bundles in longer lengths because I really do love this hair, it is good hair.

As of yet, I have not layered the hair or anything, I wanted to just introduce it to you guys before I did any of that. I do plan to do some styling posts and videos with the hair so if there is anything in particular you would like to see feel free to leave it in the comment section below.

Compared to other Virgin Hair companies, Barlow's Mane is very affordable so I would recommend this hair to everyone.

Thank you so much Barlow's Mane for allowing me to do this review and for sending this hair so quickly! 








Side note: 
I did originally plan to do this post as a video but the video kept cutting off every time I was in the middle of recording because my memory was full.

I have included some pictures and a video of my random snapchat videos all compiled together (lol)below so you can see how the hair looks on me. Enjoy X
