You have no idea of how excited I was when I found out about Genesis Virgin Hair. This “amazing” company offered 24 inches of virgin wavy hair for only $95. This was great for me since the wavy hair of the company I love so much, EIndianHair.com, only extends to 20 inches. (I really like my hair long.) So, after watching a few Youtube video reviews, I figured I’d check them out.
What happened next was HORRIBLE!
First off, the hair took three weeks to get to me. That’s with the $15 I paid for shipping. This was absolutely ridiculous! $15 for three week shipping? Where was the hair coming from? Mars? That is highway robbery! Thankfully, I already had a terrific install and I wasn’t anxious to receive my hair by a certain time. Otherwise, I would have been in beauty trouble!
But matters got much worse when I opened the USPS box and saw what was inside. The hair was horrible! It was jet black (which means it was dyed), it smelled of stale corn chips (which means it was chemically treated) and it shed beyond belief. Additionally, the ends were extremely damaged and split. All this for nothing and after a three week wait! I could have gone to my local beauty supply store and purchased better hair.
I tried to wash the hair. But when I was done, more of the hair was left in the tub than on the weft. Later, I tried to bleach it to a brown ‘1b’ (the color it should have been) but it turned red instead. What was that about?
And though the chemical coating washed off pretty well, the smell remained and the ends frayed more. This is a clear sign of tangling…something I am NOT looking forward to.
I guess I could send it back. But after waiting for 3 weeks to get the hair, I’m pretty sure sending it back wouldn’t be worth it. Besides, the company doesn’t offer returns, just exchanges. And I don’t want anything else from them.
It is my duty to tell you all the truth, as the truth will set you free. But, what was NOT free is this hair. Genesis Virgin Hair is a waste of money and should NOT be purchased by anyone. I guess you may be thinking that I received a bad batch of hair. But I don’t think so. EVERY batch of hair a company distributes should be consistent. It should not be a crap shoot. And if it IS a crap shoot, then I shouldn’t waste my time gambling with a company that doesn’t take me seriously.
Genesis Virgin Hair is NOT good hair! Do NOT buy from them. Trust me, if you have experienced good hair before (eIndianhair.com, Indique, Truegloryhair.com, etc…), you will be very disappointed with this. If you’re only used to buying beauty supply store hair, stick with what you know because this isn’t much better.
