Alibele Malaysian Virgin Curly Lace Frontal w/Bundles | Initial Hair Review + 1 Week Update!

Alibele Malaysian Virgin Curly Lace Frontal w/Bundles | Initial Hair Review + 1 Week Update!

I recently reviewed This lovely Malaysian Curly Lace Frontal w/Bundles from Alibele on AliExpress! For all of you how know about AliExpress, you know that this is the Hair Capitol of the WORLD. Sometimes you get AMAZING hair, and sometimes you missed it by a long shot. It's honestly trial and error when finding the perfect company on AliExpress. This is why I STRONGLY consider reading the reviews and looking at review photos before making a purchase such as this. 

Now, I received this hair complimentary for my honest review, so here it goes:

This hair came out of the pack very curly, and it seemed quite thin. I had a lace frontal and 3 bundles, but I was honestly afraid it would not make a full wig. I was pleasantly surprised though as the more I ran my fingers through it after washing it, the thicker the hair got.

It did not to anything crazy after washing it, so that was a plus! I also bleached the lace frontal to ensure that it matched my skin tone, which was also very easy. The hair did not dry out, but I did accidentally get some bleach on some of the root, but that's an easy fix with temporary hair dye!

I spent a few hours making and customizing my unit, applied some göt2b Glued to my hair, slapped on the wig, and it came out like this:

P.S. (Let me know if you want me to make a Lace Frontal Wig Tutorial)!!

I honestly must say that I am impressed with how this unit turned out. I have had many issues in the past with major shedding and matting with Malaysian curly hair, but this one has been very good!

See It in Action!!

1 WEEK UPDATE:

I have noticed that this hair loves to be two strand twisted when it's bedtime. I can sleep with it up in a bun, but I found that it flattens out the curls. ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, in the morning, I like to refresh the curls by taking my Kérastase Cleansing Conditioner Curl Idéal and put some in a spray bottle. I then add warm water and shake it up to mix the two, then I spray it all over my hair as I'm running my fingers through it. The shedding is very minimum, too.

After spraying, the curls immediately bounce back! For even more fullness, I take a wide-toothed comb and run through the hair to fluff it out. All-together, this is about a 10-15 minute process depending on how OCD you are about evenness lol.

I also love how natural the lace frontal looks! It really mimics my natural hairline. I do think I sewed it on a little far back, so I do have to tug it forward a bit, but the göt2b Glued really does the trick when it comes to holding it down! Here's how it looks with two buns:

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Overall, I do have to maintain it daily, especially if I decide to sleep in it, but it's well worth it! I am satisfied with the quality of the hair, and I definitely plan on taking very good care of it! I hope this unit lasts me a long time, and again, I want to thank Alibele for giving me the opportunity to review this hair for you guys! I will keep you in the loop on how it holds up! (I'll also be wearing it in most of my videos 😉). If you're looking for some new hair, definitely check out Alibele, and look around on AliExpress!!

What do you think about this hair? Have you bought any hair on AliExpress? What are your thoughts?
