Let's be honest, hair extensions are a little weird. Clipping in hair that isn't your own? Weird, right? Well I got over that pretty quickly when I was gifted this set from Irresistible Me. I still haven't warmed up to the idea of wearing them on a daily basis (and I don't think I ever will) but I have loved using them on 2nd or 3rd hair days when I'm doing something other than my usual loose curls. More often than not, I clip them in for days I want to braid my hair. Since I have baby soft and thin hair, braids with just my natural hair doesn't cut it. They look so thin!
So far I've been really impressed with this set. I ordered mine in the Golden Blonde (#14) 20 inches, 200 grams. The colour is a little bit off, but I kind of like the dimension it adds. The 200 grams was definitely over kill in my fine hair. It is SO much hair. I literally don't have enough space on my head to clip it all in! In these photos I'm using about 3/4 of the hair and it was plenty. Even with all the hair on my head, they are super comfortable. The clips don't slide on my super slippy hair and don't tug or pull on your own hair either.
I also love that these extensions are made of human hair (again, weird, I know). Ken is always asking me "Are you wearing Michelle's hair today?" haha. He wanted to put a name to the hair I guess.
Anyways, what this means is that you can style it the same way you would your natural hair. Wash, curl, straighten, dye it - whatever your heart desires! It also means they'll last a lot longer than fake hair extensions.
All in all, I've been really happy with my first hair extension experience! I can't say that they'll be something that I reach for on a regular basis, but I really love the mermaid effect I get when I add them to braids.
What are your thoughts on extensions?
