Anti-Static/Frizz Hair Brush - Review

Hey Chicsters!

As girls (and guys), we've gone through our fair share of hair brushes. They help with detangling, smoothening, and even massaging! But now we have a brush that claims to do what no other has: Anti-Static Hair Brushing!

For all of my hair-sticking-up friends out there, this is like a dream come true because we all know that if your hair acts like someone is constantly rubbing a balloon on it, the only way to SORT OF tame it is by using heat or going to the salon.

Honestly, my hair is so airborne and sticks up straight like a porcupine that heat actually makes it worse! Even New Jersey's best  stylist has a hard time controlling after after pressing it with a flat iron (YIKES)!

Something has got to give. I came across this BMK Anti-Static Hairbrush on Amazon, and had to buy it IMMEDIATELY!

Now the real question is: "Does it really work?"

Here are some Before and After photos of my natural hair and my new custom wig (Without using any hair products):

FINAL THOUGHTS

Honestly, I felt like it did what any other hairbrush would do: Detangle your hair. I do like how lightweight it is even with batteries, and I also love how easy it is to detangle! Other than that, I don't this this is a one stop shop to all of your anti-static/frizz needs. Would it work well with products? Maybe. But I wanted to test this experiment solely by itself.

What are your thoughts on the Anti-Static Hairbrush? Have you/Would you try it? Let us know in the comments below!

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:

Space 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?
