Some folks complain that they’re thin but this is a plus for me. I have very thin fine hair. Coarser strands just don’t match the rest of what’s on my head. Further, heavier extensions are really uncomfortable for someone with thin hair – it pulls on already delicate strands and doesn’t attach securely.
These are terrific – when you find the sweet spot – you really can’t tell that they’re in. Having said that, I don’t think they’re going to get much use – as my hair is thin and fine – I feel like the clips aren’t well-masked enough for me to feel entirely secure (no fault in the design). I think for going out at night – to a club or dimly lit restaurant they’d be fine but for daytime use, which is when I would use them, I would be too nervous that someone could see the clips through my hair.
I have experimented with using them well under and in the back just to beef up my pony tail or braid – I think this application sufficiently masks the clips for any lighting scenario.
First I will say that I have used TONS of real hair extensions. Unfortunately, the hair on many of them – although they indicate “Remy” – are Not high quality. This is why I was sooo happy to see the hair on these extensions. It is very high quality, soft, human, platinum blonde hair. When I put the first extension in, I immediately snapped a selfie b/c the color was so pretty. It is actually the exact color on the listing picture (at least on my PC monitor). Just a pretty platinum that is not too shiny and is the perfect shade. It does Not look bleached or white! Again, it’s natural virgin blonde hair. The clips are quality as well. The one thing people kept saying in reviews about these extensions was that they are thin. I suppose they are slightly thinner than some other remy hair extensions I have tried.
However – for me – and lots of other people – this is a good thing for several reasons! For one, I do not want damage that comes with clipping and taxing the roots of my natural hair with heavy extensions! I do not want anymore thin, or bald spots, than I already have. This is a real problem for many who have processed their hair over and over. These hair extensions uk are lightweight, and I could Not feel them in my hair which I loved. Being lightweight also made it much easier to pull these back into a ponytail, and other different styles. I am so glad I found these for their lighter weight also because the only thing I am really looking for is an outer layer of platinum to add to my hair. I am fine with the thickness of my natural hair just like it is, but I want an outer layer of a lighter shade (sort of like highlights) without processing/highlighting my hair again at the salon.
