For the past three weeks, I’ve been wearing a long, blunt cut bob using Bobbi Boss hair. Bobbi Boss is a premiere brand that I came across in the beauty supply store. I know “premiere” and “beauty supply don’t exactly go together. With a field, in marketing, I’m well aware that price and place often effect the perception of the product and the value it has in our minds.
Anyway, I took a trip to the beauty supply store because I just wanted some cheap hair for the style I wanted to try. As I said before, it’s long, blunt cut bob. I figured that since I wanted to cut the hair for the bob I didn’t want to shell out a lot of money, and I only wanted like 12 or 14 inches, keep it simple. Now when I say cheap hair I don’t mean synthetic, nor do I mean shed my life away. So off jump, at the beauty supply store options are limited. I browsed and saw the Bobbi Boss Blaze brand. Just for clarification, Bobbi Boss has several brands and several different types of hair. The Blaze brand is one of the cheaper brands and is characterized as Human Hair (Yaky) not Remy, which is known for being more premiere and of a higher quality and grade. I purchased two packs of the Blaze 12 and 14 inches for like $36 each. Each pack has two bundles.
I went and had the hair installed by Tea (go check her out).Since the hair was being cut and it was cheap I expected to see a lot of shedding in the days after my install. Nope! There has been like no shedding at all in three weeks! Except for the natural shedding when you brush, that your natural hair experiences. Because I’m used to always getting Indian, Remy hair because it matches best with my real hair I wasn’t sure if the texture of the Blaze was going to blend well. Well it does. The Blaze brand did an extremely good job at looking just like my real hair, it blends wonderfully. I was also skeptical that because it was so cheap that after a few days wear and tear it would start to tangle up. Not the case. I only experienced some tangle when I curled the hair and constantly put holding spray on it because I was redoing the curls. But there’s a quick remedy for that. A nice shampoo, conditioning and blow out and the hair is back to its normal glossy state with no tangles and no shedding as promised by the companies tag line.
The Blaze brand is the only brand I’ve tried under Bobbi Boss but I intend to try more. This brand surpassed my expectations and is a great way to look good without breaking the bank. But my sister and I always say that its not how much you pay for your hair but how you take care of it. I always try to treat any extensions like my own hair. That means wrapping, washing, etc. And let’s not forgot that a bomb stylist can make anything look good.
