First Impression: Nazuri Curls

Hello there!!!

Today I'm going to give you my first impressions about a company called Nazuri Curls (see the Nigerian store here). Nazuri Curls produces virgin hair weaves in Afro Kinky Curly, Kinky Curly, Curly and Kinky Straight textures. Their weaves are made from virgin hair that has been steam processed to get curls that can easily blend with afro and curly textured hair. Nazuri Curls hair is suitable for all hair types - natural, relaxed and transitioning. The hair comes in weave bundles, clip-ins (no extra cost), and in wigs (for an extra price).

Nazuri Curls is UL-based and they have a Nigerian distributor, but ship worldwide, so anybody anywhere can actually order.

I was contacted a couple of months ago and given a generous discount to purchase any of their hair products for review. About 5 weeks ago I finally decided on which weave I wanted (Afro Kinky Curly) and decided that I wanted them with clip-ins, so that I could easily take off the hair and wear it in different hairstyles. I finally got them a week ago - there was a snag with delivery, as I had traveled and when I came back, their distributor here had traveled as well. Eventually, I got the hair and I've worn it for the past 1 week. I will do a full product review after some time - 4 to 8 weeks. But for now, I'd like to share pictures I have taken over the course of 1 week.








Note that I left hair out at the top of my head. Whenever my hair is out, I typically flat twist or twist at night to stretch and avoid tangles. So twisting the hair I left out for my clip ins wasn't necessarily added work. On 3 nights, I single twisted, and on the other 2 nights, I flat twisted. The results are pretty much the same.



It takes me a few minutes to put the clips in - about 5 to 7 minutes in average. Ifeyinwa of Love, Ifeyinwa (also the Nigerian distributor) can sleep in her clip-ins, but I found that I can't. It takes me a while to fall asleep on a regular day, so trying to sleep with anything more than a simple scarf is very uncomfortable - in fact, sometimes I have to retie my scarf 3 times to get it comfortable enough.



My only gripe for now would be having to put gel on my hair daily as gel dries out my hair and may lead to flaking. For Thursday and Friday though, I absolutely refused to use gel, and I was fine. When I get my African Naturalistas curl pudding, I'll use that instead.

It didn't occur to me to ask what color(s) the hair come in, but I'm guess they're a 2. I know this because I usually prefer a color 1B, so it's a little lighter than I usually like, but it blends well... so far, so I'm not worried. Besides, I can dye the hair at a later stage if I decide to.

Here are a couple of pictures from my Instagram account...

Worn in a side part - yes, I get very bored with hair styles very quickly, so it's a good thing I got clip ins.

The hair is pretty high maintenance, and it will certainly force me to take better care of my own hair - in that, the clip-ins have to be washed (recommended weekly), deep conditioned (recommended every 2 weeks), and cowashed (twice a week) regularly. You also have to spray daily with water, and put in leave-in conditioner for the curls to really pop. As I type this, it's Saturday afternoon and the hair is currently being air-dried after cowashing.

*cowash means washing with conditioner*

Anyways, I'll be back in a few weeks to let you know how the hair has held up :)
