Review: Do or Dye – Jolis Hair Extensions

October 8, 20142638Views1Comment

Hi Ladies!  We’re back with the second part of our Jolis Hair review.

I wanted to dye this hair to see how it holds up to processing as this is an important factor in assessing the quality of Virgin hair.  I used 40 Volume Developer and L’Oreal Hi-Color Permanent Hair Color Creme to lift the hair color.

Unfortunately, I was not able to lift this hair like I was able to with other hair that I’ve dyed.  With this hair, if you intend to lift, you will most likely need to do a bleach first to strip the color and then deposit whatever color you choose.

The color did lift but very slightly but it’s okay because it worked with the hair color I was doing.

I do have the hair installed as well.  My hair was installed by Tiarra Monet of YouTube fame.  I also installed a closure (not from Jolis.)  I’ve had the hair in for about 2 weeks and I’m still figuring out what this hair likes the best.

ploppingPros:

I do love the fact that this hair feels like my natural hair feels and that the lust is low.   I also found that the “Plop and Plunk” method works excellent on this hair.  Here’s a diagram that describes the “Plop and Plunk” method:

Cons:

The ends are a bit rough for my liking.  If the hair is too dry, they start to become a bit tangled.  I need to test a few conditioners to see what I can do with the ends.

Besides the issue with the ends, I really do like this hair and have received many compliments.  I will do a final assessment on the hair complete with what I found works the best for this texture.
