Product Review: Sleek Hair's Super Weave Bulk

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

As promised here is my review on Sleek hair's Super weave bulk. This is Sleek hair's "Wet and Wavy" bulk and it also comes in wefts.
I got 2 packs of Super Weave bulk in 18" color 1 (jet black) from the Sleek Studio in Lagos. I had it braided about 3-4 inches (to control the volume; because I have really full hair) and not tied at the ends (so it's easy to take off). I used about 1 and 3/4 of the 2 packs.
1 Pack
After braiding, before wetting.






Right out the pack, its slightly wavy and bulky. When sprayed with water it gets curly and stringy ; braids kind of stand alone (hope that makes sense).


This is a human hair weave, not virgin since it's treated but human hair none the less. One of the perks of human hair weaves is that they can be styled,  this one was no exception. 
L-R: Brushed out, just after a wash and in soft curlers.


In an attempt to change it up a bit, after a wash I put the weave in soft curlers overnight. The result...
Pretty tighter curls and a shorter fuller do.
I washed and conditioned the hair with the Dove Damage Therapy daily moisture line . I also mixed the conditioner with water for a home made detangler.


Verdict:
The bulk was pulled and folded in half so it turned out shorter than than I expected for 18". It also looses some of its "human hair feel" after a few weeks but using my detangler daily helps bring it back.
That said, I enjoyed this weave and got compliments up until the day I took it off. I will probably do it again and since it responds well to conditioning, I'm pretty sure you can reuse the extension too :-). I was really impressed with its performance during the wash; it got hard and stiff after shampooing but then got soft again when I conditioned it.

TIPS
  • Brush the hair carefully with a wide tooth brush once in a while to work out kinks (the curls come right back when you wet it so don't worry about that). 
  • Brush the hair in partitions, NOT the whole thing at once like you would do a sew-in to reduce fall out.
  • When wet run your hands thought it to detangle before brushing to avoid pulling the braids out.
There you have it!

TTFN!

  2. Hi Bee Mee,

    I haven't checked but african hair shops around Chateau rouge and Strasbourg St Denis carry Sleek hair. In Strasbourg St Denis there is a big Fair & White shop close to the metro exit that carries a wide collection of Sleek products Hair & Make Up.

  4. Hey Ma (za model ;-)),

    Hair looks really nice. Great review overall. Loving the look post soft rollers overnight. Questinon though - Does the braid style, i.e., not being tied at the end, damage your own hair at all? I see you have naturally long hair.

    Thanks!

  6. @Anonymous, I don't think it damaged my hair,I deep conditioned it before the braids and most of my hair was in the braids so its fine. if anything i think the knots are more harmful to your hair cos taking them out is problematic.

    @Boogie, pls call 08029429215 or visit us,64b Anifowoshe str off Adeola Odeku,VI for more info.
