How to Pick Out Quality Hair Weave and Extensions: 100% Remy Indian Hair at Indique Boutique (Video)

Read ALL about my review process including how I take swatches, photos, and more here.

Whether you’re Black, White, Latina, Asian, etc. if you want a new look via weaves or extensions, you want something that’s high quality and looks completely natural. I’ve been wearing my recent weave since November 2010 (I reused the hair for a new style in January) and have been fooling folks into thinking it’s my hair. I’m transitioning out of my relaxer and have had friends try to call me out for lying about going natural because my weave looks like my hair when it was relaxed. When I tell them it’s a weave, they’re amazed…lol.

22" Indiqué Bounce collection "Relaxed Straight" hair

I bought the hair from Indiqué, a boutique co-founded by hairstylist Ericka Dotson that offers not only the best, most realistic-looking hair, but the customer service is phenomenal. Indiqué was born out of Dotson’s idea to bring the highest quality hair to her clients who were frustrated at the time with the offerings on the market.

With proper maintenance you can get your Indiqué hair to last a minimum of one year. I have the Bounce collection “Relaxed Straight” hair, a popular seller as it mimics relaxed African American hair. I prefer to air dry my hair but it can also be blow dried and requires such little maintenance to look great. I haven’t experienced shedding nor tangling with this hair (and I sleep like I’m doing the Dutty Wine in the bed).

So in this video, I take you into Indiqué where their lovely customer service representative Gabrielle takes us through the different types of hair offered. I tried to make the video feel just like you were there so I hope you enjoy. I also learned some new editing tricks so check ’em out. Be sure to go on Youtube and click thumbs up on the video and leave comments.

What sets Indiqué apart from other hair retailers is they’re the only company that produces the hair at the source in India. Indiqué’s virgin hair has cuticle layers facing in the same direction from root to end, ensuring that the extensions behave exactly like your own hair and guarantees natural wave, fullness, luster, and remarkable usability.

It might be a splurge for some (like me…lol), but you really get what you pay for in terms of quality. Since the hair doesn’t require much maintenance to look great, once I’ve paid for my hair and the installation, for three months I don’t have to pay to get my hair done because I can do it at home (and I’m always running late so it styles very quickly). Plus you can use this hair for a minimum of one year as long as you take care of it.

    LMAO I can’t stop laughing @ “dutty wine in the bed” Danielle you are killing me here! On another note, when or if I ever decide to get a weave, I’ll definitely be getting Remy because I’ve hear nothing but good things about their products and I’ve seen & touched it & it’s LEGIT!

    Also laughing at the ‘dutty wine’ comment.. hilarious visual.

    When it comes to something like this, I feel that quality is paramount. The time and effort seems a waste when the product is lacking. I love the variety of hair textures, will definitely be browsing their website. :]

    Hi Danielle,

    Your posts are always so helpful! I always get the best tips about products suitable for use by black women! And I also love that you seem so willing to help give advice to those who ask for your help.
    Danielle, I hoping you can help me . I would like to get more fullness Only the front area of my hair / the bang area of my head – (my current hairstyle has side swept bangs)..
    Do you know the best way for me to get this fullness at the front of my hair – that Does Not include adding weave to my entire head.
    Before i wrote this, I did do a little Googling – and read a little bit something called the Fusion technique – But to be hones, I have never heard about this method before, and si i Do Not know anyone who has personally used the Fusion method, or even a method simular to it, on their hair — so Danielle, I am turning to you for help.
    Do you know about the Fusion method – or one simular to it ? Is it a good way to add some fullness to Just the front of my hair. / the bang area of my head ? OR is there another, Better, less damaging method that i should consider ?

    Thank You in advance for your help,

      Hey Lisa!

      Thanks so much!

      I don’t know any Black women who have tried Fusion before, but to add fullness to the front of your hair, you’ll need some sort of hair piece. I saw clip in bangs at Indique so maybe start there. You can also call them at (877) 556-4247 Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. est and ask them what else they would suggest for the front of your hair.
