A new brand of natural hair extensions: “Her Given Hair” has emerged on the scene and I have gotten my hands on them. I didn’t want to go the regular sew in route I usually take when trying out a new line of extensions, mostly because I’m over sew in weaves for right now (specifically I’m over the take down process). So instead I decided I would give these extensions a spin by making my very own u-part wig (which was an experience in itself that I will share later).
When I initially received the Her Given Hair shipment I opened up the package to find a cute box with the company’s logo. I am a sucker for great packaging and I think it is important to make sure your packaging looks good. So they get an A for their efforts in packaging. Moving further into the package I received two bundles (16/18inches ) of their Coily textured hair. This hair best matches 3c-4a hair types. They also contain two other textures Curly (3b/3c hair type) and Kinky (4b/4c hair type). The coily texture was extremely soft with a slight medium sheen/lustre. With a few co washes this lustre would be able to more closely match the natural lustre of freshly washed hair with a bit of oil used to seal/moisturize.
The curl pattern of the hair is a bit looser than my curl pattern however the construction of the texture (the tight curls) was spot on with the curl patterns I have on my head. Especially the front of my hair which has a looser curl pattern which worked out great since it would be exposed in the U-Part wig.
Pros Of “Her Given Hair” Extensions
Cons Of Her Given Hair Extensions
Overall initial thoughts:
I like the look of the c urls especially when combed out and big. I’m a fan of big hair and I am able to achieve that look with this particular hair texture while still being able to switch back into a more conservative look with a twist out. I’ve only been using this hair for a few days since I removed my faux locs this passed weekend so I can’t speak on the hair long term. I do believe that with proper hair care this hair has the potential to last for a year or more. I will be giving a 6 month/1 year update on this particular unit after several different styles and hair care routines.
I’ll be doing a live Periscope review showing you the ins and outs of the hair on Thursday July 30th, at 7:30pm EST! You can follow us on Periscope and catch morning motivation, giveaways, exclusive reviews and more! (Periscope handle: @TrialsNTresses)
