I saw My Extensionz hair on Instagram and I was interested in the look and quality. The hair looked full and had great curls. I also noticed they had a new line inspired by Teyana Taylor called Taylor’d Textures that is a unique combination of Brazilian & Peruvian hair. I ordered a few bundles to create a U-part wig. I wanted it big and wild so I order 4 bundles.
Unfortunately, when the hair arrived it was the wrong hair. I was sent Mongolian Curly and one bundle of Brazilian Body Wave in 22″ instead of the Taylor’d Textured Curly. I called customer service and spoke with someone who was very nice and helpful and she informed me that the hair was not yet available so they sent me the Mongolian Curly as a replacement. She agreed to send me another bundle so that it would match my original order and I agreed.
I received a bundle of Natural 1B Mongolian Virgin Curly 20″, Brazilian Wave in 22″, Mongolian Virgin Curly in 24″ and Mongolia Virgin Curly 24″ The website noted that each bundle was going to be approx. 4 oz each. After weighting each bundle I called customer service again and asked why each bundle was not as advertised. Again, the person I spoke to was very nice and explained that each bundle should be 3.5 oz to 4 oz and she would update the website to reflect that for future customers. *The website has since been updated to reflect a more realistic approx. weight of the bundles.
Mongolian Virgin Curly in 24″ bundle was weighed as 3.17 oz
Brazilian Body Wave in 22″ bundle was weighed as 3.25 oz
Mongolian Virgin Curly 20″ bundle was weighed as 3.35 oz
When I received the hair I planned on making a U-part wig that I could sew down to wear during the winter. Unfortunately, I had to have a surgery to have a large lump removed from my right breast and I was unable to work on the wig for about a month until the drainage tube was removed and I could lift my arm again so this review is a little delayed.
Prior to starting the wig I prepped the hair by co-washing with a cream conditioner, rising and then deep conditioning overnight. I left the hair air dry in my backyard. The curls loosened but they were still very fluffy and soft.
I created the U-part wig with the 3 bundles of Mongolian Virgin Curly and the 1 bundle of Brazilian Body Wave on a fitted elastic cap. I am not a full professional at creating u-part wigs so I did get some help from a friend. The U-part took me about 4 days to make.
I sewed the wig on Christmas Day and wore until February 2nd. I left very little hair out around my perimeter and the curl pattern of the Mongolian Virgin Curly blended very well with my natural virgin hair. I had very little shedding but a little tangling. I did notice the hair would dry out often, no matter how much conditioner I used. Once the hair dried out, it would appear brittle and frizzy. But a little water and condition in a spray bottle would help that. The Mongolian Curly removed curly, even though the curly dropped over time but the Brazilian Body wave dropped a lot and had to be curled with a wand to blend with the rest of the hair.

Texture | The hair arrived very clean and smelled fresh. The curls were soft and dropped slightly after being co-washed. Unfortunately, the hair will tangle a little throughout the day.
Flexibility | The weft was double stitched but very flexible. It was not too stiff but well crafted to prevent extra shedding.
Recyclability | The hair is good quality. With proper care, this hair could last about a year.
Stability | Once washed and conditioned the hair does not shed often and wears well. I washed this hair every week and deep conditioned once every two weeks. The hair would get fizzy when it became too dry so proper moisturizing products will be your friend.
Overall | I was pleased with the My Extensionz Mongolian virgin curly hair. I liked the curly pattern because it looked more natural than most curly hair. I also liked the condition of the wefts. Curly hair can shed due to all the curly and fluffy but the shedding was minimal and would be considered normal.
Even though, I received the wrong hair, I was happy with this hair as a replacement. I also wanted to note that I was more pleased with the customer service. Receiving the wrong product is never a pleasant experience but they were so willing to assist quickly and resolve the issue to my satisfaction.
