Buckle your seat belts — today I’m spilling all the details about my extensions, how I wear them, and an honest review of them! I will always keep it real with you guys. If I say I love something, it means I am crazy about it!
So before we dig in let me give you a little background. I first purchased extensions this past November. I had no idea what kind to buy and I just drove over to Sally’s and bought a pair. They were kind of expensive so I expected to have mermaid-like hair. They were okay, but not the thick luscious locks I was looking for. I ended up wearing this pair for my bach party, bridal shower, etc.
So a few weeks ago I was sent a new pair of hair extensions from Irresistible Me. They arrived in a really cute box and were carefully packaged.
The way they packaged the extensions is important. Here’s why — do you see the right side compartment? They request you open that side first to make sure you’re 100% confident with the hair color you chose. The left compartment is sealed and once you open that side they can’t be returned.
I received the 200g 22inch silky touch extensions in Chocolate Brown. The 200g make them thick and full and the 22inches are definitely the drama I was looking for!!
What really struck me was the quality of the clips on the wefts. They are super secure and literally all I have to do is just clip them in and they stay alll day long. I don’t tease my hair or anything (and I have super fine hair…). The clips also provide awesome volume! All the hair that is resting on top of the clips (like my natural hair) is lifted a little bit.
Other awesome things:
The wefts are the same thickness from the top to the bottom. I’ve been using them a lot in the past couple of weeks and there hasn’t been any major shedding.
The extensions hold a nice curl even in this ridiculous Mississippi heat, which let me tell you is practically a miracle!! For the photos above ^^ I didn’t even have to re-curl them. These curls were left over from the day before!
The photos below are from different days wearing these extensions. Different humidity, temps, etc!
These extensions are a major YES. I can honestly say I was really blown away by these. Truly my only regret is that I did not discover these before my wedding! Looking back at the pictures from my bachelorette party and bridal shower, I can see my old/other extensions look really stringy in comparison with these. These are quality extensions. The 200g thickness really makes me feel like I have mermaid hair. You are given a ton of hair. In the above photos I didn’t even use all of the wefts.
My only word of advice is make sure you are ready for this length if you get the 22inches! They can get a little heavy (because hello, they’re thick) and can get a little hot if you aren’t used to long hair!
How I Wear Mine:
I almost always wear my extensions down and with a little curl at the end. I just started doing a little trick to help the extensions blend more. Before you clip in any extensions, take a section of your natural hair at the nape of your neck and braid it tightly. Wind it into a little bun and pin securely to your head with bobby pins. This helps create volume and it really helps the extensions blend in more! If you need help learning how to put in your extensions, I suggest going to Youtube. There are a ton of amazing videos showing how to clip them in!
Check out the before & after below. Love the drama!
