In my last post, I shared that I wanted to install a sew-in as a protective style. I purchased Freetress Jazz Water hair to use for my install. The hair is very inexpensive and I discussed that I only intend on keeping the hair in for one month. It’s super hot and humid here in FL and it is doing a number on my hair.
Installing a curly wig was my best bet to get me over the hump. I went with less expensive synthetic curly hair because it just made sense. I recorded a video update after I installed the hair. Unfortunately, the room I recorded in is pink and it threw the video color off. However, you can still see what I’m working with and how it turned out.
Weave Install Details:
I cornrowed my going from side to side because I knew I was going to sew the hair back off my face. I left out a small section of hair in the front to blend into the weave hair. To blend my leave out with the weave, I rodded the hair in the front, applied Eco Gel to help lay it down a bit, and tied a scarf to cover the front. So my hair is curly but pushed back just a touch to prevent it from falling in my face.
Freetress Jazz Water Mini Review:
You know the old saying, “You get what you pay for”? Well it applies to cheaper weaves. I’m not complaining because I expected the hair to cut up a bit. I did experience some matting but I realized the best products to use on the Freetress hair are by the Wet & Wavy brand.
I was able to detangle the hair and bring it back to life. I will say after I got caring for the hair down, it started to look more natural the longer I had it installed. At night, I slept with a satin bonnet and I made sure to moisturize the weave hair and my natural hair before bed.
I ended up keeping the hair in a little longer than one month but overall, it held up well given the price. The hair was purchased from my local beauty supply store. Each pack was $5.99 with two packs being used.
