This is my 3rd time ordering from Aliexpress. The first order, I don't know if I hated the hair or the install itself, the second order I absolutely LOVED, and with this being the third, I'm hoping to love this as well.
I also ordered a closure for a different company on Aliexpress, but I have yet to receive it, so it's not included in these photos. Just an FYI, I wouldn't recommend choosing "EPacket" as a shipping method because it's supposed to take 10-15 days to get to you. Always go DHL (especially if it's free shipping).
Let me start off by saying this is NOT a paid review. I bought this hair with my own coins. I purchased this hair from Ali Moda at like 11pm (I think) on Tuesday, October 28, was shipped Wednesday October 29, and I received it around 3pm on Friday, October 31st. (Now you see why I said get DHL shipping lol). Total cost: $110.61 with free shipping.

|3 bundles and a pack of 5 flexirods|
Upon taking the hair out of the bag, each bundle was in their own little plastic sleeve, with a label on the top part of the bag, specifying the length. I don't have any pictures of that because it was packaged just like the other bundles I've done reviews on. Opening each bundles, there was NO CORN CHIP SMELL at all. I know some people complain of receiving hair from Aliexpress only to have it smell like corn chips. That's never happened to me. The hair smells like.. hair. Like human hair. No chemical smell or anything, all three smells normal.
|16 inch bundle - Peruvian Body Wave|
This bundle seems to be a "regular' size from what I've experienced in the past. I don't know about the construction of the weft yet (will update when I wash it and take it out of the rubber band), but it seems to be a little messy. As you can see in the bottom picture, there are "fly away" hairs sticking out of the top. It may just be cause of the way the hair is rubber banded together at the top or it may be because of the the hair was weft together.

20 inch bundle - Peruvian Body Wave
Now, I know the wave is a little funky on the 20 inch bundle lol. It did NOT look like that when I first received it. I accidentally folded the hair as well as the plastic when I placed it back in the bag and that's how it was when I took it out again. Whoops. That was my fault, not the vendors.
I know this is long, but this is an initial review. I plan on updating when I get the install. In that update I will also talk about washing the hair (if there's any shedding or dyes running off the hair). I'll probably do an third update as well about how the hair behaves, if it holds curls, sheds, mattes up and whatever else. I will also do post about the closure that I'm still waiting for. I don't know if it'll be an "in depth" review like this one because I've never had a closure before, and I'm not sure if I'll be using it for this install.
If anyone has anymore questions, please don't hesitate to comment below. I know a lot of people tend to talk down on Aliexpress hair, but I haven't had a real issue with them yet.
