Long time no blog! After having some annoying database issues I am back blogging. This time about hair extensions!
I’ve been thinking about my hair a lot lately. It’s very fine, thin and falling out like crazy. If I curl it an hour later it falls out, same with most hair clips. Also it’s incredibly limp and just gets more limp with products – but it’s always been incredibly shiny so I guess there is one plus.
I was definitely interested to try something like clip in hair extensions that would give my hair more volume and length. Wigs and weaves had been on my mind but seem either crazy expensive or too damaging to my existing hair. I’ve always wanted to have a long thick bohemian single braid but I can never manage that with my hair alone.
I got the set of Signature hair extensions in Natural Black, 18 inches (100 grams) from Irresistible Me. My one concern initially was that they don’t really offer a color that matches my natural color: it’s not quite black but definitely not a warm chocolate brown. The Natural Black is close and since I had a terrible grown out ombre and traces of my last fuchsia dye in there I just dyed my whole head a shade darker than my natural color.
The set of hair extensions comes with a bunch of pieces ready to clip in. You start with the big one in the back and work your way up. I’m no expert and I’m terrible at hair but I managed to figure it out! It also comes in a cute box with replacement clips so you can easily store it without losing anything.
Overall I love them! I feel like I have a glorious mane with endless possibilities. The hair itself is high quality and would look great styled. Another concern for me was if the clips would rip my hair out but it only managed to snag a couple of strands which is certainly manageable (and probably a result of my technique).
My only issue with the full set is the weight. The large piece in the back felt very heavy to me like I would have fared better with more little pieces than the one large piece. But then again I don’t know what it feels like to wear extensions (or have full hair). I also think all the hair makes my face look slimmer?
I don’t see myself wearing the full head everyday because I’m lazy but I do see myself using them to create styles very frequently like giving a braid, bun or ponytail LOTS more volume and hair to work with!
Irresistible Me has loads of colors and styles to choose from as well as styling tools so check them out and make your hair happy! (They also usually have a promo going on for your first order FYI)
*twas sent these extensions by Irresistible Me but my opinion is 110% my own, of course.
