Hey Youtube family. It’s your girl Lia
back again with another video. And today’s video as you can see from the title is
another crochet hair review video and today’s crochet hair as you can also see
from the title is the Mane Concept Sassy curl hair. Now if you’re not familiar
with my crochet hair review series and somebody recently commented on my video. And was like girl you ain’t got us run us through this all the time.
We know your style of crochet hair review. And I’m like but do you guys know I
get new subscribers daily. Some people aren’t aware. If you are existing
subscriber you know how to skip ahead. Go head. You know where to begin but if
you are new to my channel this is how my crochet hair reviews work. I come on here
with my first date thoughts of a crochet hair. Showing you guys how it looks first
day in. How long was it install it was? How many packs I used? How it looks that
first day in. What my braid pattern is? and all that. Then I come on here with my
one week thoughts of the hair. Showing you guys how it looks one week in. What
my thoughts are on it one week in. What my hair care routine is? My nighttime
maintenance and all of that. Then I come on here with my final week’s thoughts of
the hair. Showing you how long of wear I got out of the hair. How long I think I
could have gotten. If I could have a wore it for a little bit longer. If I think
it’s water friendly. If I think it’s activewear friendly all that. So I try to
bring you a well-rounded picture of the hair. Because chile so many people come on here with their first day thoughts and they love a hair. But I’m like well what
y’all think about a weeks in? Does it still look the same? We need to know! I
got ya girl. So if you’re not subscribed make sure you smash that
subscribe button so you don’t miss any of my reviews and you can become part of
the family and know how my reviews work. But if you’ve made it to this point
right now let’s just roll on into my first date thoughts of this Mane Concept
Sassy curl hair. So now I am here for my first day thoughts on this mane concept
sassy curl hair. Now this is what she looks like freshly installed. Just got
done installing this hair. I have a straight back braid pattern. So that
means I can part it on any side. So right here. Right here. In the middle. On the
right and all of that but if you are familiar with my channel you guys know
I’m a creature of habit. Left sides are my jam. Now the install didn’t take that
long at all and I only used four and a half packs.
So this is all I have left of that fifth pack of hair. Now like I said this is 12
inches. So I’m gonna turn around and do it 360. Do not judge this is freshly
installed so the hair may be uneven. I’m letting you know right now. You guys are
seeing the back before I’m really seeing the back. But it will be cut.
I won’t look crazy if I do look crazy. Now this is what twelve inches looks
like unmanipulated. So if you’re in the store right now trying to figure out if
twelve inches is right for you ten inches and I know they have a 18 inches.
So they have this hair and three different inches. This is what 12 inches
looks like. 10 inches would be a lot shorter. You know 18 would be a lot
longer. Now I bought my hair at hair stop and shop. I purchased it with my own
money. So this is not sponsored by them. But I have to say I’m trying to get
outside of my normal routine.Sam’s Beauty is my normal vendor that I go to for my
crochet hair but they do not offer any Mane Concept hairs. And this hair I
believe was $5.99 a pack so I bought five packs because I’ve never installed
more than five packs of a Mane Concept hair just off rip. So if you are
thinking about Mane Concept. I’ve tried three so far. Beach curl, waterfall and
now sassy curl never installed more than five packs. So I don’t think more than
five packs would really be needed in any style. Now it’s very fast install. All my
mane concept hair installs have been very fast and it could be because it’s
an easier hair to install but it also could be because I’m not using as many
packs as I am with other hairs. Just varies I guess. Now like I said this is
how it looks first day in. And now this texture is more comparable to the Mane Concept Beach curl hair. Now I talked about my Mane Concept Waterfall hair I
love that hair. As I’m recording this video to date that it’s my favorite hair.
Now for watching this in 2019 I may have another favorite hair but as I’m recording
this right now April 2018 Mane Concept Waterfall hair is my favorite hair. And I
talked about how that texture is different than a lot of hairs that I’ve
tried and it’s different than this texture. This texture is more comparable
to that Mane Concept Beach Curl hair. Where it’s a lot softer. The hair is a
little bit more. It has a little bit more bounce to it. Not hat Mane Concept
waterfall was crunchy and hard it wasn’t that way at all it just felt like. It had
a good feel to it. If you’ve ever tried that hair you know what I’m talking about.
That feels just! I love it. Now so it’s kind of weird going
back to this kind of curl but Ivlike it. So this is what it looks like first
day install. There’s not that much frizz to it the first day in. So you
don’t have to worry about a lot of first day frizz. Now I did mousse it right
after I had installed it. So installed it and then put mousse through it. So I
brought back out my lotta body mousse and ran my mousse through this hair
because with these kind of texture hairs mousse becomes your best friend.
So I talked about the inches 12 inches I was skeptical. Online I was trying to
figure out should I do 18, should I do 12, should I do 10. I knew 10 was out of the
way because ah little too short for me. 12 is not what I’m used to. I’m used to
eighteen, sixteen, or fourteen this is a little short for me but if you guys have
been following me throughout my journey I do start my new job on Monday. And I’m
so excited. I wanted a new hair for my new job and this is the hair I settled
upon. I think it’s you know appropriate because I want to give them to Talia first
day. I’m gonna switch it up on them and do Lia Lavon a little bit later but I
gotta get them adjusted. I have to come in there and be like hey this is me. But
then I’ll be like with my colors. With my outrageous styles with my faux locs.
I’ll work ’em into that a little bit later. So I think this is very
appropriate. I think it’s very cute. It’s very much so me I think. So my overall
first day thoughts on this hair I really do like this hair. I really am
enjoying my experience with this hair so far. Now it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet
so I can’t say it’s my favorite hair. I can’t rave about it that’s why I say my
reviews are full-bodied. I like to bring you everything but first day in I do
really like this hair. And I do like the way it looks. Now let’s see if I continue
this feeling on into my one week thoughts so stay tuned for my one week thoughts
on this hair. So now ya girl is back for my one week thoughts on this Mane Concept Sassy Curl hair and this section is going to be extremely brief because I have no
cons with this hair. All love with this hair and I’ve only had it in for one
week. If you guys have been following my channel you guys know my journey you
guys know I started a new job this week or I probably mentioned it in my first
day thoughts. I started a new job this week and this job is kind of farther from my
house so I needed a hair that was gonna be low-maintenance.
I needed to consolidate all my morning routines. My hair routine. My makeup
routine and my clothing routine. Now my makeup routine could use some work. I
need to consolidate that a wee bit but my hair routine
this week has been literally three to four minutes tops. Absolutely all I do take my scarf off after pineappling that night. So at
night all I do is I put mousse on the hair maybe every two to three days. I
don’t do it every single day cause this hair does not require it every single
day. But whenever the mousse is right there I’ll run some mousse through it
just to keep it you know frizz free. Tangle free at best and then kind of
separate some curls and then I will pineapple it. So still pull all the hair to
the front of my head put a scrunchie around it and then put my scarf on it. A
lot of you guys in almost every video where I say pineapple you’re like what
does pineapple mean. I’m like I show you guys at least six to seven times
all throughout in the course of my channel. But just to let you guys know
that’s what I mean when I say pineapple. I do that at night. At night that takes
me maybe five to six minutes. If I actually use mousse it’s a five to six
minute process. But it’s a lot less on most days. And then in the morning all
I’m doing is taking the scarf off, removing the scrunchie, and just you know
doing my hair shake. And then I gel my edges down. Literally three to four
minutes and that’s what I needed. I needed a low maintenance hair. I’m so
happy that I’m back to the low maintenance world. Now in my IG and
snapchat stories every time I’m snapping in this hair you guys are always asking
me what hair is that. Is that now Outre bohemian curl hair. I see what
you guys are seeing. This does look very very similar to the Outre
bohemian curl hair. And you guys are probably gonna be like well choose your
favorite. Because anytime I say a hair is similar to another hair you guys always make me want to choose and I can’t choose. It’s literally they are equivalent hairs.
This hair is exactly like Outre bohemian curl. You cannot go wrong with
either or. The only thing that puts Mane Concept maybe a step above and
literally a small step above is that they have three length options. You have a
10 inch, a 12 inch and an 18 inch. With Outre Bohemian Curl you only
have I think a 14 inch and a 24 inch if I’m not mistaken. I had the shorter
version in that video 14 inches but and like I say with a lot of Outre hairs
you never need that 20 length. That 20 inches is way too long because you end up
cutting it up to about 16 inches anyway. So I hope I get a lot of wear out of
this hair but you guys will see. Watch my final week’s thoughts coming up
now. So now your girl is back for my final final thoughts on this Mane Concept Sassy Curl hair. Now this is what it looks like at three weeks. So three weeks it’s
my final thoughts. Yes, I am taking this hair out at three weeks but that does
not mean I couldn’t have worn it for a longer. That means I’m going to DC next
week and I love switching things up. I want to be in DC with a different hair.
You guys know I’m going to a festival a music festival at that. I just need
something a little different even though I think this hair would be amazing for
the hotter season because it is very lightweight. I just need to switch up. I
need something a little bit longer. I’m missing the drop. I’m missing them inches
on my hair but you could get upwards of six weeks. This hair is a comparable to
the Outre bohemian curl. That hair I wore for six weeks. I think you can do be
equally same amount of time with this hair as well. These hairs are extremely
similar. Like I said in my last week’s thought. The only reason that the Outre
bohemian curl is a little bit behind this Mane Concept Sassy Curl is because
they give you three different lengths with Sassy Curl as opposed to just the two with Outre. But if that is a matter to you
go with either. If you’re in the store trying to choose between one or the
other you cannot go wrong with either. The only other thing I would say this
hair gives you that Outre doesn’t give you is an options in terms of colors.
The Mane Concept hair gives you so many more options. I think Outre is very
limited. I love the color selection that Mane Concept has. They do colors
beautifully. I really want to try that burgundy color that everybody has like
Mane concept has this beautiful. You guys know what I’m talking about Google if
you don’t. Mane concept has this amazing burgundy color that I wanna try in
crochet hair but also I cannot wear it to work. I’m in that phase where oh
that’s so bad but uh I can’t wear that in real life type of a vibe. I love Mane Concept
colors so that’s the only reason this wins but if you’re looking for just a
solid 1, 1B, 2, 4 type of color neither one of these are bad options. This hair
has been phenomenal. I’ve actually got this hair wet so I washed it last week which
was week two with this hair. Um and it didn’t frizz that bad. You guys can see
right now. I did have kind of frizz right here in this area
the top area because that’s where you’re actually trying to get in and clean your
scalp. This is where it kind of frizzed the most. But the ends still look amazingly
well. So the only level of frizz is up here and that’s because I’m rough when I’m washing my hair I’m really trying to get the buildup of product outside of this.
Especially with it being summer coming up. I’m probably gonna be washing
a lot more on my crochet hairs. Winter I’m pretty bad at washing my crochet hairs
but summer it’s hot it’s sweaty you need to get the gunk on up outta here. And
this hair still held up well through washing and it looks the way you see it
right now which is still good. It might even look better than it did before. Maybe
not. Do I think it’s activewear friendly yes? Do I think it’s water friendly? I
just spoke on that yes I think he’s gonna swimming on vacation with this
year nothing would go wrong with this here you definitely have to bring
products with you to kind of revitalize it after of course washing any hair like
I talked about in my main concept beach curl hair video watch that watched a so
you kind of know what to do you need to watch these hairs out completely you
need to detangle the hair you need to have kind of a regimen with these hairs
but overall I had no conferences here there’s really literally no cons you you
don’t have to use that many packs of hair the time that it takes to install
these hairs are not long at all so those are my thoughts on the main concept acid
curl do I recommend absolutely I recommend this hair if you’re looking
for a cute work style I think this is a cute work style like I’ve said it’s been
three weeks at my new job I got this hair for my new job they have loved it
they don’t know Lila mom got to switch it up on me pretty fast they don’t know
what to they got coming for them I wear at the job so they’re gonna see me next
week I’d be like whoo oh don’t worry about it your girl switches it up if you

  1. I have been binging your videos over the last 2 days,! Your reviews are so thorough! Do you have a video on your typical braid pattern? I'm trying to get an idea on the install

  2. I was waiting for this review I was curious to know if you would love this hair as much as I did. And you do! This is my go to hair. Mane concept is one of the top companies, in my opinion, for crochet hair. Iโ€™m so glad that my local beauty supply store just started selling it so I no longer have to order online. I currently have the natural water wave installed and Iโ€™ve gotten soooo many compliments on it. Love your videos! Keep em comin!

  3. Just got this hair in the 18in thanks to your review. I wanted waterfall but they were out of the Ombre colors. ๐Ÿ™

  4. Girl…Iโ€™ve been waiting! Looks great on you….Iโ€™m doing this next! 12โ€ is good for me, and thank goodness my local store sells Mane Concept!

  5. I love your videos. I am especially looking for crochet hairs that last a long time. I am a nurse and work with girls that don't have much and I am gonna do some of their hair. Even when they leave hopefully it will last a while. My version of giving back! Great video

  6. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I love the way you gently read folks!!! ๐Ÿ‘€ donโ€™t tell me how to set up my videos! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ get em girl!!!

  7. I'm so glad you finally had time to post your thoughts (I reached out to you in IG about this hair)!!! I love this hair!!! Actually I think I'm becoming a ManeConcept girl….I'm becoming partial to their crochet hair. I loved this hair so much I did a 2 the first time and a 1B/33 next…..I want to say that was like night and day. I felt the colored hair was work….way more than the solid color. I love that curl pattern on you. Hopefully you can try it on a different color…..I love that burgundy too, but literally work on Capital Hill…and yeah, that color won't fly, LOL. Thanks again for posting!!! (Your right it looks better to me after washing….I washed my hair twice!)

  8. Can anyone suggest some alcohol free mousse brands. I went to Walmart and didn't see any that said alcohol free

  9. @lialavon can u try z finger roll plz & pineapple curl? This looks gorgeous imma have yo snag a couple packs!!!

  10. Another pretty one! Question you..when I do my installs I usually do them with a lighter density..I notice that when the wind blows I feel like all my braids in the back are being exposed ๐Ÿ˜ณ. Would installing more hair in the back keep cornrows from showing? It also seems like they become more exposed when I tried to wash the hair. Any tips would be appreciated. TFS

  11. Can u do a review on the new colourpop foundation. Were no the same color but id love to knw ur thoughts

  12. Ok Lia that music threw me off for a second! You know I'm used to the same tune like this is my weekly tv series! ๐Ÿ˜… Hair is cute as per usual. ๐Ÿ˜‰ How you gonna hold out on us tho? April Lia? You've been sitting on this info since April? You mean I could've been rockin' this hair 90 days ago? Ok so I'm gonna need for you to get in formation and post chronologically please and thank you! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  13. I love how you choose to channel a negative comment into a positive viewpoint… love your videos! Ready for next week's video!

  14. Lia girl I love your videos! I really like this length because next month will be really busy for me so I want a hair that will be cute and last long. Did you cut the hair at all? It looks shorter by the third week.

  15. I was looking for another style to do and was thinking about this hair I saw online. ( I installed the Model Model wavy feathered Senegalese twist last week) . You convinced me now ans im going to get this hair. Thank you for doing the work for us before we buy it! โคโคโคโค

  16. Hey Lia did you split the hair into 2-3 pieces before installing it or did you just install the straight out the pack

  17. Hi Lia
    I enjoy your videos too! Which crochet hair would you wear on your wedding day? I'm getting married in Hawaii in December and trying to decide early. I like it kind of short just beneath my chin.

  18. The shorter hair does look good on u, even tho u want that drop lol.. I have been liking mane concept colors too.
    U should do a crochet wig tutorial on the burgundy mane concept!

  19. I have always used the mane concept Cuban curl. I love it! I donโ€™t know if you would but can you try and do a review?

  20. Great video!!! And perfect timing…I just bought this hair in 1B/30 and I'm putting it in tomorrow…๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  21. This hair looks so pretty on you! Also love the floral top! Thank you for being my and plenty others crochet authority.

  22. Itโ€™s weird cause I hated the mane concept waterfall. It tangled and matted so easily. So Iโ€™m nervous about trying this one. You have usually been correct about hair. This hair looks gorgeous

  23. Cute too. Is it comfortable though? Ooh Iโ€™d love to see the burgundy on you. You should try it when youโ€™ve got a few weeks off work.

  24. Hello Lia,
    This hair is nearly impossible to find online in 12 inches. Unfortunately Hair Stop & Shop has been having challenging with online orders for some reason. I just wanted to share another option for finding the aforementioned hair in 12 inches. carried this hair and I just want to save others from the hassle of searching and coming up empty. Options are always good!!

  25. You are my go-to crochet expert. I really appreciate your review method-saves me time, money and aggravation! I don't buy any hair without watching you first.

  26. Installed this hair today and I love it! The curls are so cute like wand curls and the 12 inch is perfect for my job (as a teacher). Do you think this would be a good beach/cruise vacation hair? I'm not much of a swimmer but I do plan to get in the water

  27. Beautiful! What's your favorite crochet hair when comparing freetress Bohemian, Beach curl ,Presto curl or the mane concept brand?

  28. Lia I never leave a comment, but Lia,my name is Patricia under my daughter Chanel,I guess cause she registered us on my tablet,however I been following you from day one and I felt being from NC,you truly are my down to earth sista friend.
    Thank you so much for your thorough reviews.I always say oh Lia review may be long,so let me skip,but girl I skip the ads instead of your video,I always say,I'm not gonna listen to end,but I always find myself listening from beginning to end cause I so love and appreciate and admire you,could tell your good people,thank you soooo much for your opinion,take care.

  29. I have been watching crochet hair videos ALL day and I have liked your by far the BEST. Do you think these can be done with the braid-less crochet style. I can't braid….lol. I particularly like the Mane Concept Sassy curl

  30. I love this make up look, I love when you use warm browns and highlighters, can we get a new makeup tutorial with descriptions and your thoughts on makeup brands?

  31. Hey beautiful. Love this look on you, this is my favorite crochet hair to use. Just a note, at the time you did this vid, Sam's did and still does carry mane concept sassy curl. But they're a pain in the _ _ _ about 1) keeping it in stock and 2) limiting the number of packs you can order (I think the maximum is 10 or something). I love your vids, keep em coming <3

  32. Dec 22 I have to say the sassy curl is the best by far I have tired, i have this in my hair for over 2 weeks and the more wear I get out of it the better it looks this hair is so easy to separate, and all I do is use mouse sometimes and put my bonnet or silk scarf on it and sake it loose and go thank you for the review on it cuz I was just trying it out for my sister and end up loving it myself. Give it up for mane concept.

  33. I am new to your channel and I absolutely LOVE you!! My new motto: if you haven't reviewed the hair… ain't worth my time! โคโคโค #ReclaimingMyTime

  34. omg yasssss I wanted crochet hair that had something with spiraled curls at the ends :D. I'm so happy I found your channel. Your top is pretty where did you get it from?

  35. I bought this hair and put it in and it looks nothing like yours but hopefully in a week it starts to look better. Even with lotta body my hair looks wavy and the knots are slipping ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

  36. Just discovered your channel last week. I've been doing crochets for a couple years but haven't done curly for years. I literally watched your videos and wrote the names of hairs down before I went shopping. Your reviews are everything ๐Ÿ’–

  37. Thank you for sharing this Video. I really like this curl and plan to try this hair. Its pretty๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  38. โ™ฅ๏ธClean skin @LiaLavon who won the prize/giveaway the other day. When u reached 50K. Which video is that in?

  39. Just found your channel recently and I love your videos. Your reviews are so descriptive. All the details you give are exactly what I look for in a review. I hope you'll start to show a 360 of the hair (side and back) especially for the week 1/2 and so on. But none the less your reviews are awesome! Thank you! You've made me want to try more crochet styles. I'm heading on vacation and wanted to jus go with a wig but something lead me to crochet and thats how I found your page! Now I'm a subscriber and I follow your IG!

  40. I'm a new subscriber I don't care how many times you come on here showing crochet hair I love it I love watching your videos you fabulous I love you girl keep doing what you doing

  41. This hair is horrible,I'm going to cry I spent $30. It's too silky and frizzy. I'm starting a new job. It hard to knot it just coming out

  42. Ms. Lia thank you for all that you do! I found you looking for reviews for this hair and I'm on my second install. Your tips for caring for crochet hair have been priceless! Every other night I use a mixture of water and conditioner as recommended by my stylist, other nights I use Vigorol mousse and it has so far has saved a bad install. Don't know what I'd do without you! All I can say is THANK YOU!

  43. Did you split the hair during install and did you do the invisible braid method in front…or how do you think the hair would respond to invisible braid method in front

  44. Would you consider this one beginner friendly? I just watched your list of beginner friendly hair but I already bought this hair because it's so cute ๐Ÿ˜Š
