From red carpets to your favorite influencers, we’re seeing this 90s hair trend everywhere. Typically featured on bone straight hair, we couldn’t wait to add some texture to the style to give it the Melanj flair.
Check out how Blake recreated the trend using a set of 18” Coarse Kinky Straight clip-ins on her old blow out. Our Coarse Kinky Straight clip-ins are the perfect blend for hair types 3B/C - 4C because they will blend with your hair blown out hair using minimal heat.
For starters, you'll want to gather you hair into a high ponytail or puff and secure loosely with a ponytail holder. Apply edge control or gel to the perimeter of your ponytail and begin smoothing it in place with your boar bristle brush. This will ensure your ponytail is nice and sleek. Once you have it to your liking, securing with a ponytail holder.
Now you're ready to work on the ponytail -- gather your puff and tie it down with a ponytail holder. This is great for thicker and/or shorter natural hair. If your hair is longer or fully detangled, you can choose to braid your ponytail instead. Once you have your ponytail base, you're ready to begin installing your clip-ins.
Starting at the base of your ponytail, begin wrapping your clip-ins around the ponytail until you reach the base of the ponytail. To conceal the wefts at the base of the ponytail, grab a small section of hair from the bottom of the ponytail, wrap it around the wefts and secure it with a bobby pin.
After your ponytail is secured, use a 1.5" curling iron to flip the ends. Apply hair clips to hold the curl in place until it cools, this will ensure the curl is fully set in place. Once your curls are set, you're ready to SLAY your vintage ponytail!
This hair is the TRUTH! If you want to have blow dried 4C hair, this is it. Most kinky straight is shiny and wavy like a Caucasian did a braid out. Some yaki are too ripply and don't hold a curl. This coarse kinky straight texture starts close to the weft and is pretty consistent throughout. The hair smells good, so I didn't even bother to wash it. The bundles are full. 2 bundles 16" or less can do a typical sew-in with a small center part. I would get 3 bundles for 18"+. The hair is great quality; length appears natural and even looking; and cuticles seem aligned. I sell hair from a factory, so I am familiar with what to look for. I'm so excited about how natural this looks on my 4C natural hair. It's expensive, but I would definitely buy it again. Even the stylist who did my install asked for the ordering information. I got about 3 customers for Melanj just from sitting there. I'll try to submit a picture when I take out the flexirods.
Amazing coverage especially around the holidays. I normally dread paying this additional fee for insurance, but this last order placed with Melanj came in handy. My hair was stolen and having this insurance secured my purchased. My hair arrived and I’m so pleased with the quality.
