I’m finally getting round to banging this post out. So I finally got my hair after 6 weeks, the longest wait ever and completely unprofessional. Naturally the unnecessary delay and bad customer service put me off big time before even receiving the hair. Private Stock hair does not deliver worldwide yet so I had to get my friend in the States to order it and then post it down to me (yes y’all, that was how committed I was to getting this hair). And no, that is not the reason it took so long for me to get it. It took my friend six-weeks of calling and emailing for her to receive the hair before sending it to me, which only took 4 days. I’ve already said that no matter how much I love the hair I will never be ordering from there again unless they start delivering worldwide and up their customer service and I still stand by that. From what I’ve heard, it’s the owner who runs everything herself which can explain the tragic delays and lack of customer service.
I wanted a protective style that wouldn’t put too much stress on my hair and would allow me to take care of my own hair properly. With a kinky textured weave I don’t have to worry of it getting greasy looking , which is the absolute worst with non-kinky weaves. With my private stock hair I’m able to drench my hair completely and co-wash as normal because the weave itself requires co-washing and because I specifically got my tracks to be spaced out I’m able to oil my scalp easily.
Ok, let’s get into it! I got two bundles of the Go Natural Collection, both in a length 16 at $163 each ( yes this ish does not come cheap!) , and it came in this sort of natural brown colour which I’m not really feeling right now, but it’s all good because I’m able to dye it. It’s a 3a-4c texture depending on how much frizz you create with your fingers. It’s the frizz that really gives it the natural afro look and it’s also the frizz that causes it to tangle and matte, be warned!
I got a full head sewn in, I didn’t leave any of my hair out which I seriously regret now! I was too worried that my hair texture wouldn’t blend but after having it for 4 days now I can see that it would not have been a problem, but it’s so full looking that it would probably have hidden my hair anyway.
- It’s very natural looking so you don’t have to give up your natural hair look to get a protective style
- It will make you look after your natural hair because it requires the same care
- I’s a protective style
- It’s super soft
- You can build the look of fullness and alter the texture from 3a to 4c yourself
- It’s 100% human hair so if you take care of it you can get your money’s worth ( and you would want to with the amount it costs!)
- It is on the pricey side
- Customer service was not great
- It’s high maintenance
- There’s quite a bit of shedding
- it tangles a lot and can get matted
Overall, I freaking love this hair, I love the look and feel of it, it’s exactly what I wanted. Yes, it is high maintenance but I had prepared myself mentally for it as I stated in my previous post. Will I be ordering from them again anytime soon? Probably not, not until I know they’ve upped their customer service game.
If you have any questions about the hair that I haven’t answered in this post please drop me a comment below and I’ll try to answer, and if you’ve used Private Stock Hair before let me know your thoughts. I’ll do a review update in a couple of weeks to show you how the hair holds up! 🙂
