My natural hair is ash blonde, highlighted with bleach blonde and lowlighted in strawberry blonde. The color was a perfect match. The plus side to these over those is that I can clip them in quickly without much styling and they feel very light and natural on my head. Expensive 200+ gram extensions are incredibly thick and lush but also feel very heavy and can cause a headache if worn all day. These human hair extensions came at 18 inches long instead of the 16 inches advertised, but the last two inches were so thin and stringy I trimmed them off immediately.
I also shaped them: with the extensions laid flat on a table, I shaped the set into kind of a subtle U shape, which made them slightly shorter in front and created some face-framing pieces.My hair is very fine and a bit longer than shoulder length, however I would still need to use 1.5 – 2 sets of these extensions for my hair to look full. This real hair extensions is MUCH too thin to wear just one set straight. I curled it with my waiver to make it look fuller, which helped a lot and made one set wearable (still thin, though). Unlike my expensive sets, this hair gets thinner towards the bottom ends. Expensive sets are usually as thick at the bottom as they are at the top of the weft.
I have to say, I’m very impressed with these remy hair extensions. They are soft, easy to install, and curl easily. I ordered the 20″ 150g set in 1B (Natural Black) and the color is a perfect match to my natural hair. The ends are thinner than I’m used to, but trimming them took care of this (maybe order a few inches longer than you think you need because of this). Other than that, the thickness is perfect. My hair is medium/regular thickness and I don’t even use all of the pieces. I’m interested to see how long these last, with proper care.
