Hey remember I purchased these items, well here is a quick review!

Thoughts? I use this spray to moisturise my cornrows (under my wig) daily and it does the job. I love that the first ingredient is water which is a key ingredient of any moisturising hair product. I have found that as the temperature is dropping , it is not as moisturising as before and I need to use oil as a "top up" during the day. I think I'd purchase this again for Spring/Summertime. I love the spray nozzle it is so convienient. I'd give this 3.5 out of 5.

Remy Hair, 10 inchesDescription: Remi Collection Indian Remi Weaving by Sensual Collection is made of hundred percent human hair with remi texture in wet and wavy style.

Thoughts? Well I thought purchasing Remi hair would be a great investment- lovely, tangle free, I can reuse again and again. Erm no *record stratch*, after I had my weave in for 2 weeks- the nape was tangle city! In fact- tangle kingdom! By the 3rd week I wanted to take it out which was a shame. It was the cheapest Remi hair on the site so maaaybe alarm bells should have been ringing. Also wet and wavy texture? Hmm wavy *gives side eye*. I have kept the hair (although some had to be disposed due to tangling) in case I want to make another set of clip-ins. I will say this hair did not shed as much as other brands I've tried like Premium Too or Milky Way. But I will not be repurchasing, I'd give this hair 1.5 out of 5.
