Who doesn't want longer, thicker, fuller looking hair?! I certainly do... So I've given hair extensions a go.
My hair extensions were ordered from Irresistible Me - I ordered the 20inch Remy hair extensions in golden blonde. 5 days later they arrived...
The packaging was very cute, and when I opened the box there was a gorgeous illustration on the inside. The hair itself was hygiene sealed, and the hair carefully net wrapped to stop it knotting together.
A complete hair extension novice myself I wasn't quite sure how I was going to cope with putting these in, but the simple clip in design meant that even I managed to use them with ease.
The only down side? Although a LOT of hair came in the packet, I have super thick hair (my hairdresser says I have the hair of about 3 people!!) that there just wasn't quite enough to add pure length to all of my hair - however it was great for styling into hair-do's. Adding that little bit of extra volume to a ponytail, plaiting in for the ultimate fishtail braid etc.
These hair extensions are made of real human hair, and as such you need to take care of them. Don't over process them - take care of them as though they were your own hair. If possible, try not to wash them too often - but when you do, make sure you use conditioner or the hair will knot up just the same as yours would. In fact, perhaps even more so as our own hair receives natural oil from our scalp, whereas the hair extensions need the moisture added back in when washed.
Would I recommend these to a friend? Yes. Just take your time looking through the shades before you purchase. I always thought I was 'Ash Blonde' but when looking through the shades, and watching the YouTube tutorial I realised I was actually a 'Golden Blonde'.
