OUTRE KINKY CURL CROCHET HAIR REVIEW| LIA LAVON


Hey YouTube family! It’s your girl Lia

from the title is the Outre Kinky Curl crochet hair. Now if you’re not
familiar with my crochet hair series what are you waiting for go ahead and
hit that subscribe button. You gonna want to be part of this family. I have over at
least 17 different crochet hair reviews on this channel. But if you’re not familiar
with my series this is how they happen I come on here with my first day thoughts
of a crochet hair. Letting you know how long it took to install. What my braid
pattern was. How the hair looks overall on the first day. Whether I like it the
first day. If I had to cut it. If I had to manipulate it in any way. Then I come on
here with my one week thoughts of the hair. I tell you what my nighttime routine was with the hair and whether I think it overall went south in a week.
And then I come on here with my final thoughts of the hair. However long that
is. Whether I was able to wear the hair for three, four, five, six weeks of wear.
Whether I think the hair is a low maintenance , a high maintenance hair.
Water friendly, activewear friendly and all that. I let you know what my
overall thoughts are with the hair. Whether I recommend it or I don’t
recommend it. So if what I just said doesn’t intrigue you and you don’t want to see
all that I won’t be offended if you leave but if you want to see my thoughts
on this hair just stay tuned to see my first day thoughts on this Outre Kinky
curl hair. So now for my first day thoughts on the Outre kinky curl hair.
Now about the install of this hair I got this hair installed last night. My mother
actually installed this hair. She did a braid pattern that I wish I had watched
her do because it is something that I probably would not ask for again in the
future. It’s the braids are going all this way. So they’re curved braids going
this way and that’s why my hair is kind of parted like so. So if you can see my
braids have a middle going on right here. There’s braids going this way braids
going that way. She installed six packs of this Outre Kinky Curl crochet hair. Now
I do have the 22 inches version of this hair. Like I said I
bought this hair a year ago and I think that’s before Outre was doing heavy the
14 inch pre-looped versions of hairs that they have now. I will let you know right now
if I were you I would stick to those pre looped 14-inch versions that Outre has.
Now this isn’t how they hair started out. Oh no no there was no way last night
that I was gonna be able to go to sleep with how long this hair is. The hair came
now to here before I cut it up to here. And I’m still not done cutting but I
wanted to give you guys an overall view of how the hair looked at kind of a longer
length. Now I’ll turn around. In the back of course last night I came home and cut it
a little bit for evenness. I’m gonna cut it even more for layerage but this is how
it looks straight out the pack and cut a little bit. Get that 14 edges don’t waste
your money on this 22 inches just because you’re gonna end up cutting so
much hair. So much hair was cut at the bottom in the back I cut the hair even
in half. So the back is short and then this hair that’s covering it up it’s
kind of the longer it’s full length of the hair snipped down about 6 inches. So yes that’s just my thoughts Outre always makes a long version and a pre-looped shorter version of their hairs. I’m partial and I prefer the Outre shorter versions of
the hair if you have an option. If you don’t see it in your stores and you want to
try out the hair especially if it’s the Outre bohemian curl in the longer
version definitely get the longer version if that’s all they have. But if that’s
not all they have and they have the shorter go the shorter route. You don’t
need all this hair. You’re not gonna see this hair like this much longer in the next
week of wearing. So when I come back in a week I’m actually gonna go through each
curl probably tonight and separate it out a little bit so that this hair can
get a little bit more volume. I don’t like how tight to my face it is. Like I
said it’s Black History Month I’m going in with a full you know body of hair. I
don’t like how it is. I’m going to actually separate the curl out while
it’s in my head right now just to kind of give it some volume. If I have to cut
some of the hair out because it gets too voluminous I will do that. But this hair
right now I just. I don’t know it’s not giving. It’s giving me Sensationnel Island Curl and I don’t want to look like I’m wearing repeated hairs. I definitely said
in 2018 I want to try some things that are variety for my channel and I’m not
really delivering variety if this looks just like and I’ll insert a picture
right now the Sensationnel Island Curl hair does it not. Now the model on the back it
gives you a good view of what it looks like at its full 22 inches length and
this is what how it exactly would look especially if you didn’t cut it. You need
to cut this hair. You need to give it some layerage. This in terms of nighttime
routine all I did last night was pineapple the hair and went to sleep and
you guys know I’m all for the pineapple. I think this hair is gonna be definitely
very low maintenance. All I did last night in terms of the care of the hair
is I moussed it. I put my Lotta Body mousse and I ran it all throughout the
hair and that’s all I did in terms of care for the hair. So that is my first
day thoughts of this hair. Like I said in one week this hair won’t look like this
so stay tuned to see how I manipulate this hair or what it looks like in the
week and what my one week thoughts are of this Outre kinky curl hair. So now I
am back for my one week thoughts on this Outre kinky curl crochet hair. Now
this is how it looks as you know as I said it’s gonna look vastly different than
it looked the first day just because I have separated each curl out and of
course I’ve cut it drastically. Well not drastically but I’ve cut it enough for
me where it makes sense. So I say right
about now it is 12 inches and I’ll do kind of a 360 for you guys so you can
see the length. I like this length and that’s why I say if you’re in the store and
you’re trying to debate whether to get that long 24 inch or you’re trying to debate
to get that pre-looped 14 inch I think you can go well with the 14 inch version.
Also about the knots they look very realistic. So don’t feel like if you get
the pre- looped version of the Outre Kinky curl hair that you’re gonna have to
worry about the knots. The knots don’t look bad. They blend really well
with the hair. The hair looks very natural. I wore my issa natural shirt
because of how natural this hair looks. Now in terms of my thoughts about this
hair though I I don’t know whether it’s me. It might be a Lia Lavon thing. But I
just can’t get with the spirally tight curl hair. All I see. I see all the
Instagramers like the Jasmine Browns and everybody who has naturally this kind of
hair and it looks so well on them and I’m like oh hair goals. But then when it’s
on me I’m always like I don’t know. Maybe my head size just doesn’t fit with it.
But you guys let me know in the comments are you feeling it. Is it a yes for you. I
maybe because I haven’t worn it with confidence I have not gotten as many
compliments as I normally get with my spirally curls. So like Mane Concept
beach curl presto curl all those other hairs that I wea I get a lot of
compliments. I didn’t get as many this week. And I think it’s cuz I’m not
exerting the confidence that I I should have with this hair. But overall I think
the curls are very much so intact. They look very good even for me separating
each curl out. The frizz hasn’t been unmanageable and that’s a great thing.
Now in terms of nighttime maintenance with this hair I’ve been doing the same
thing I did the first week which is putting the hair up. Grabbing my huge
bonnet that I normally do and then going to sleep like this. You guys I
cannot stress enough that my hair never falls out of his bonnet. This is my
favorite bonnet. You guys know I own two of these bonnets. I talk about this bonnet at length because it just it holds everything in and I got it from Target. You ask me
in every video I got this bonnet from Target. It was like $4.99 probably still
there. Um and so when I you know wake up in the morning I just go like this. And this
hair is pretty much ready to go. Very much a little maintenance. Very much
so easy and and fun to play around with but one week in doesn’t look bad. Definitely
love it more when it’s more fluffed out than it is when it’s the more concise
curls. It looks very much so like a natural twist out that’s not going
anywhere. You don’t have to worry about it disappearing in a week oh no it’s
gonna stay with you. So yes those are my one week thoughts of this outre kinky
curly crochet hair. Now let’s head on over to my final weeks thoughts and see how long of a wear I’m able to get out of this hair and what my final thoughts are. Stay
tuned! So now I am back for my final final thoughts on this Outre Kinky
Curly hair. It has been three weeks from this hair and I think three weeks is good enough. I think I’ve
had enough time with this hair to give it a good evaluation and how I feel about
this hair because this hair is coming out tomorrow but I did overall I enjoyed
my time with his hair. Just for different reasons so it’s ironic that I’m filming
this video as I’m also editing my sensational island curl hair video to go
up and it’s ironic because look easy very similar theory very similar almost
identical to the point where I would say if you’re trying to choose between
sensational island curl and this hair I actually would go a sensational Island
curl and I have a four major reasons why one this hair is heavy heavy heavy heavy
the sensational island curl I used four packs of that hair wasn’t heavy at all I
realized that this hair was happy when I was editing my boohoo and she in hauls
that I recently did and both of those videos I noticed that I’m still um
thinking a lot I’ve noticed that I’m taking photos and my head’s a little bit
lower like I’m not realizing it that is heavy because I’ve gotten used to it but
when I look at pictures of me I’m noticing that I’m sloshing a lot more my
head’s a little bit more down and I’m like oh my god is this hair heavy and
then I’m like yeah I think it is I think it’s pretty heavy so I think sensational
island curl if you guys watch my video I always said that here was kind of
lightweight that hair had a lightweightness to it even though the
curls were really popping and very much so voluminous curls and I think it also
goes into the amount of packs that I use now I watched another reviewer of this
hair because I wanted to give you guys a full body review of this hair if you
guys I’ll leave it up above I think her name is pronounced katana Katina I don’t
know how you pronounce it but I love her installs of hair size she was one of the
beginning people who I watch for crocheting here at her and tastes pink i
watch more so taste pink now but I still love her reviews she did a review on the
outstretch kinky curly or she did an install of it and she used the actual
shorter version of this hair and she used seven and a half pack so I use six
packs that I use a long version Cu seven and a half packs of that hair that’s a
lot of hair to buy I’m being honest with you guys you guys come to me for
affordable hair look something and a half pack of a $5.99 here it’s a lot of
hair to be purchasing I bought the sensational I’m gonna curl here I bought
maybe five six packs of that hair I only use four packs of that hair four packs
as opposed to her using the same amount of inches I think sensational island
curl might have been 1214 the shorter version of this out straight kinky curly
is 14 inches seven and a half four packs you’ll have
to buy eight packs versus four packs I’m definitely gonna go with the cheaper up
the option what am I gonna use all those extra packs for and also if you guys
look it’s the same exact look I have the same exact look that I have going on
with the sensational Island crow I do this hair also this hair I didn’t
get as many comments on I got a lot of compliments on that hair I don’t know
what it is about this hair might be a little bit too big like I think it’s a
little bit uh I got so many compliments if you saw my sensational island curl
hair I said that was one of my most complemented hairs today this is one of
my least complimented here is a day and it’s almost identical I think people are
are reading off that this here might be a little bit too oh they’re seeing maybe
I’m standing a little bit shorter because the hair is so heavy the other
thing about that hair sensational island curls a lot softer than this hair I like
that softness now having this and feeling how you know I think the
complaint of mine with sensation on how I curl all is too soft now having this
I’m like let me go back to that too soft feel because this is a little bit too I
would say rugged as three and a half weeks has gone on so those are just my
thoughts overall on this I’ll try kinky curly hair I think if you’re gonna go
based on what I just said go with sensational island curl I think this
hair is very low-maintenance all I did like I said threw it up in a pineapple
put my scarf on and went to sleep can’t get any simpler than that I say
this hair just like I said the sensational island curl hair I say this
hair is water friendly but only water friendly for those first two weeks if
you’re gonna go swimming with this hair go swimming the early period of time
with this hair unlike the deep twist hair by free trust I told you guys in
that video that I went on my cruise swimming in that hair during week four I
believe so I warned the hair out wasn’t a fresh adieu when I went to on my
cruise oh no no no I had warned that hair out because I heard that was best
and I did it and I don’t have any regrets with my bobby boss now wave hair
I didn’t just get the hair installed when I went to the beach I think I went
to the beach two weeks and wasn’t a hobby boss now wave here now this is an
opposite I would say if you’re gonna get this hair getting installed right before
you go because if I went right now I would have to deal with a lot of tangles
a lot of like if you guys can’t notice there’s a lot of matting going on so I
wouldn’t be able to go to the gut I wouldn’t feel comfortable dipping my
head in water as it stands right now because I can’t even separate it as it
is on dry land if I go underwater it’s not gonna get any better so there are
some hairs that I say their water friendly but you gotta definitely figure
out when you’re gonna go water friendly I think like an owl tre bohemian curl
like a main concept beach girl you think those hairs wet further into your where
so you don’t have to worry about I get my hair done this weekend and I
can go no no no you can get your hair done two weeks before hair goes still
look popping this hair not the same thing I think it’s definitely active
we’re friendly but you’re definitely gonna have to figure out you’re gonna do
a shorter style because I don’t understand how I’m gonna work out with
all this hair going on I would definitely have to do shorter don’t know
how I would put it up in a bun because my head already feels heavy all on top I
would be hard so those are my overall thoughts on this hair this is how it
looks three weeks and I definitely say I probably couldn’t do one additional week
I could do and bust out four weeks of wear but after four I would be done I’m
just ready to get it out now because I got some special things and no words for
you guys that I want to try it out but I definitely say for me I couldn’t done
put past four which is too much I did four weeks with the sensational island
curl if you saw that video and I don’t know if I could have done the mean
longer with that hair either I think these hairs might have a shelf life of
me that might just end at four weeks but I’ve grown into liking it I know I had
reservations about Hailu like that look wise on me I kind of liked it it’s grown
on me like it’s really a hair that’s memory
I like it even though the streets ain’t loving it even though the streets ain’t
giving me compliments I think it is fitting and flattering to my face I
definitely love a more spiral crawl on me but you guys know I have my personal
preferences so if you got enjoyed this video make sure you give it a big thumbs

  1. I have this installed right now(in the 14" preloop version) and I mixed it with a different brand's preloop water wave and bohemian curl hairs. Have you considered mixing curl patterns?

  2. I agree it looks just like the sensational hair but much fuller. Too full. I think you could have gotten away with 1 or 2 less packs since you separated the curls. I think it's beautiful hair you but maybe in a lighter color

  3. Love it ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I am definitely getting it. Thanks for the honest review…tfs ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹

  4. I'm new to the channel. Love it so far. I've got to have that bonnet. I'm experimenting with different curl patters, maybe I'll try this one. Thanks!

  5. Love your videos. Not loving this hair on you. I think the cut could have been better. Maybe that's why you received less compliments.

  6. Love it Lia!!! Youโ€™re so gorgeous! Iโ€™m going to try this next!! Thank you for an awesome review, as always! โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ

  7. I like this hair! I agree with you though I think I liked the island curl a little better.
    I think you look just as lovely with tight curl patterns as with the looser spiral curl hair. You can rock either look girl!

  8. I like the look, itโ€™s good to change up, yeah I couldnโ€™t deal with the heaviness, I know I wouldnโ€™t have it in long, Yes for Sensational

  9. Hi I usually wear that kind of curl
    I just wanna say it does best with using less hair .you dont have to use as much hair as loose curls

  10. Seems like the longer lengths becomes tangle fast I always say u take one for the team because when my mind runs on crochet I think of the braided kind

  11. This hair looks a little too puffy for me, T, so I'll pass…but can I just tell you…you have the cutest presentations! It's the way you speak…you talk mad fast, but it fits you soooo well๐Ÿ˜ You're young and so cute (pixie-like). You once said that you're single and looking, I may have to show your videos to my son.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€

  12. Love this hair on you! It looks beautiful. I actually like the longer version before you cut it, but that is just because I love very long hair on me. LOL! I am going to try this one for my next crochet install. Great review!

  13. It does look heavy that is why I cut mine in half using 4 packs. I love those shirts…where can I get them??

  14. you mentioned in the video it was black history month which means you're still holding out on us smh lol. can't wait to see what else you have stashed ๐Ÿ‘€

  15. Another EXCELLENT Review Lia. You keep it so real and informative. Keep giving us more. Your format is what makes you stand out! Subbie For Life!
    FYI: Iโ€™ve been trying to figure out Outre Kinky Curl. For me it only works as a shorter Afro-length install. I have to cut the 14โ€ to 10โ€ and even 8โ€ for it to feel and look half-decent.

  16. I like it but I feel like it was A LOT of hair! Maybe less packs would've been less heavy? Either way Lia it looked good on you just TEW much! Lol!

  17. I love watching you for whatever good or bad updates! Not my favorite here but love the review! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  18. When I saw how big this was on you Iโ€™d have to agree. Itโ€™s not one of my favorites. It is super big. ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ. Love you but not this one on ya. Now I canโ€™t wait for your next install. ๐Ÿค—

  19. LIa, question… what hair do you find has the most wave to it?? Now I'm asking for a trip to Columbia. I have watched every video you own (probably three times each) I just can't figure out which is more wavy. I am not a big curl person. I just can't get into the deep twist for some reason. I figured I would ask you…. Again more wavy then curly but nice and long ๐Ÿ™‚ wait let me clarify. Sexy wave. LOL I'm looking for a more sexy wave but not to tight. That's a lot huh

  20. I think this hair looks great on you. you probably aren't getting the compliments that you're used to because to them is a little bit too ethic, to true to your naturalness, but yeah I think you look amazing

  21. I actually like week 3 the best looks more natural! The curl pattern was good on you but the cut didn't fit your face shape thanks for the review! Imma go watch the island girl video now

  22. I really like it! I'm about to have my first ever crochet install next week and I am starting out with 3b-3c patterns as it best mimics my real hair. This curl pattern definitely falls under that category. I might try it out next! I'm installing the rastafri dream romance curls as my first hair. Fingers crossed!
