Now that the weather is nicer (goodbye winter!), it’s time to make more plans to get out and about.
But one thing I don’t want to have to worry about all the time is my hair. I know that a lot of people spend a lot of time styling their hair in the morning, but I’m more of a get-up-and go kind of person. I like hairstyles that require little maintenance or effort BUT still look good.
That’s why I love love LOVE extensions and wigs.
Now, I know some people are on the “I don’t wear weave ” train. And that’s fine. It’s totally a preference thing.
But, personally, I love the versatility and convenience of wearing weave- whether your hair is natural or not.
A few months ago, I decided I wanted to expand my weave horizons, so I started looking at different hair companies. One name that kept popping up all over the place was Mayvenn.
Now, if you haven’t heard about Mayvenn yet, let me school you real quick.
First of all, they are ALL OVER Instagram. I follow a LOT of hair and beauty influencers on Instagram and so many of them are raving about Mayvenn’s hair products and their customer service.
Seriously, you guys should check out all the Mayvenn related hashtags that are out there: #MayvennMade #MayvennOnFleek #MayvennHair #MayvennQueens #MayvennGirls #MayvennMovement #MayvennSlayed #MayvennMoves #MayvennHair#MayvennGirl
It’s crazy in the best way!
I totally admit to Insta-stalking Mayvenn for a while – checking out all the hairstyles they help women all over the world achieve.
I wanted to know more, so I checked out their website and was impressed!
The first thing I noticed was that they highlight deals that they have. I can’t say that I’m cheap- I believe you should invest your money in quality things. However, I AM budget-conscious and love to get the most for my money. So I was already liking what I was seeing on their website.
After making note of their deals, I decided to check out their full line of products. They have all kinds of options to choose from.
A Wide Selection of Hair Extensions
One of the best features we'll discuss in this Mayvenn Hair review is the fact that they have such a large variety of products to choose from. Not only do they offer different textures, but their extensions are also available in different hair types and lengths; thus allowing their customers to achieve the look they desire most without having to worry about limitations when it comes to the options that are available to them.
The different types of textures and styles they offer include straight, loose wave, body wave, deep wave and curly. Mayvenn Hair also recently introduced a brand new texture that is unique to their brand – kinky straight, a hair extension that has an exceptional texture that is now loved by thousands of fans.
If you prefer using bundles for sew-ins or custom wigs, they also have plenty of those available.

Clip-In and Tape-In Extensions
If you just need some added length or volume, Mayvenn also offers clip-in and tape-in hair extensions that blend in flawlessly with your hair.
If you want to wear a wig without anyone knowing you’re wearing a wig, they have plenty of lace fronts and closures for you to choose from. They even have some really amazing 360 frontals that will give you that confidence- from hairline to nape.
I ordered the Brazilian Natural Straight and Malaysian Body Wave – both in 10 inches.
So, here are my thoughts:
First of all, the wigs are really affordable for such high-quality human hair. Human hair wigs can cost a GRIP, but these were a great price (in my opinion).
The wigs came in some really cute silky drawstring braids. I see you, Mayvenn, over there being fancy!
Both of the wigs had a combo of combs and drawstrings on the inside (combs on the side and drawstring in the back), to help keep it secure. I appreciate this touch because then I don’t have to use bobby pins to make sure the wig doesn’t fall off accidentally (Not, today, Satan!)
The hair was sooooo soft and thick! I couldn’t help running my fingers through the hair. If I were a cat, I would have been purring! The texture for both the wigs was on point. And even with running my fingers through the hair, there was no shedding.
They include a short and informative care guide with each wig. It covers info on how to keep your wig from tangling and shedding as well as general hair care tips. They even give you a list of hair care products they recommend (which is beneficial for your natural hair as well!). They also tell you about their 30 day guarantee and how to take advantage of it.
I’ve been wearing the wigs pretty regularly for over a couple of weeks and the hair is still in top notch condition. With some wigs, after a couple of weeks (or even a couple of hours) the hair starts to get tangled – especially around the nape of the head). That is the quickest way for me to decide not to buy from a company again. With Mayvenn, that doesn’t seem to be an issue. I follow their directions in the care guide and all is well in the world.
Another thing about the wigs that I love is that since they are human hair, you can curl them, straighten them, and dye them however you want. I’ve curled the straight one a few times and love how well they hold the curls. When I want to get it straight again, I just wash, condition, and brush it really well. The versatility is much appreciated!
On a scale from 1 to 10, Mayvenn gets a definite 10 from me. They have excellent customer service, fair prices, great variety, and fantastic products. I look forward to trying out more of their wigs (and maybe a few bundles). I highly recommend checking them out if you haven’t already!
If you do decide to buy a wig from them, don’t keep the greatness to yourself. Share a pic on Instagram and tag one of the hashtags so other wig lovers can revel in your slaydom.
Mayvenn seems to be known for specializing in virgin hair. That means their hair is from human donors, make great investments, and you can play around with it.
Mayvenn also has dyed virgin hair, which is great for people who like to experiment with colors, but don’t want to spend the time (or money) it takes to dye hair. You can simply pick out your favorite style in a variety of color, including various shades of black, brown, and blonde. They even have a beautiful burgundy color!
When it comes to textures, you have the choice between Straight, Yaki Straight, Kinky Straight, Body Wave, Loose Wave, Water Wave, Deep Wave, and Curly, giving you plenty of opportunity to play around with different styles as often as you like.
Want to rock a short look? How about hair down your back? With Mayvenn, you can do it all. With lengths ranging from 10 to 28 inches, it’s really easy to find something to fit your needs.
Shop by Look
Another feature of the Mayvenn website that I absolutely adore is the Shop by Look section. This is where they feature nearly 30 different women who rocked Mayvenn hair products on Instagram with the hashtag #MayvennMade. This gives you the chance to see how their products would look on an actual person rather than just trying to imagine it. It shows you how they can be styled and the variety of models (who range in size, shape, and skin tone) gives you the chance to see how a specific product would look on YOU. Plus, it can make you consider a style that you wouldn’t have considered just from seeing a regular picture of just the hair product. I highly recommend checking it out.
Free and Fast Shipping
If shipping is something that can be a dealbreaker, know upfront that Mayvenn offers FREE shipping and they are pretty darn fast! No complaints there!
The Mayvenn Hair Guarantee
Let’s be honest – ordering stuff online can be scary. Especially if you’re ordering from a company for the first time. Ande definitely if you’re spending more than a couple of bucks. Now, personally, I think that Mayvenn has some really amazing prices. Especially for the quality you get.
But what really impressed me is that they offer an irresistible 30-day guarantee. If you get your package and can tell right off the bat that it’s not for you, just call them within 30 days and they will refund your purchase as long as the product is unopened and the hair is in its original condition. But they take it a step further. If you WEAR your hair and decide that you don’t love it, you can still call them within 30 days and they will replace it – free of charge. You can wear it, dye it, or even flat iron it and they will STILL do what they can to make sure you’re a happy customer. Now, that’s what I call great customer service!
