So, as soon as I got these, I put them immediately, by myself. Super easy to do with a couple of large mirrors to work with. I have very light platinum blonde hair. It’s just shy of being completely white. So I was worried the hair would be too dark or too yellow to work with. However, I washed and conditioned with purple shampoo and conditioner and then I toned with the same toner I use on my hair.
It made a HUGE difference. My friend was worried it wouldn’t blend because my hair is so light. But she was amazed when I showed off my hair. It matches perfectly. The hair texture is similar to my overporcessed hair. Not like it feels over processed, but it’s not thick strands of hair, like what I’m used to when I buy dark brown hair extensions uk. It’s thinner stands of hair that match well with my hair at this color. So it’s been a few days now and it does tangle and shed.
I’m not sure if the tangling is due to the smaller hair shaft or that I have been in a car a lot in the last few days driving across the state to visit family and my seatbelt ruffles up my hair. I will say though, even hair I bought that was cuticle aligned, virgin, expensive hair still tangled and shed. I am happy with this hair. It holds curl well, took color well. Looks great. Makes me feel better about myself.
I have had the hair in for a month now, it still looks great, the pictures are of blowed dried, curled, straightened after a month. I baby my hair though, no sulphate moisture chi infra shampoo and conditioner. I use chi oil on it as well. I put my hair up every night, I comb it at least twice a day. The real hair extensions still looks great. I put on cleaned, no conditioned hair. The tape seems to last well, but I bought extra tape for the few that didn’t. I have a layered lob, but one can not tell.
I layered the extensions with a razor trim. One should have a professional add them, I knew what I was doing but it was still a lot of work. Not a lot of shedding at all, seems pretty thick to ends. I needed more then 2 packs, at least 3, but I have thick hair. So I think I covered everything. The hair is great, but take care of it to keep it beautiful.
I saw some posts about buy new tape. If you research or know how to take care of tape ins so they don’t fall out they work perfectly I’ve had zero fall out after multiple washes . Just do not wash your hair for at least 4 days after install and DO NOT use any conditioner anywhere near the scalp . Will never buy hair extensions uk anywhere else you cannot beat this price for this quality of hair . All I got . Try some for yourself just follow tape in hair extensions tips to make sure you properly take care of them . Oh no sulfate use all sulfate free shampoo and conditioner and don’t spray perfume on hair the alcohol in perfume will harm extensions.
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.
Very pleased with the real hair extensions. Only thing my hair is jet black and the hair is like soft black or dark brown, but the texture is great. LOL I don’t even take care of mine and will not comb it out but finger it and it would not matte up or look bad. I really took a chance getting this hair but now I won’t go back. Theres not many options for women who like clip in that blend well, remain soft , does NOT shed, and stays curly when damp…Then you can take it out wash and condition hair, and put them right back EASY LOVE IT!!!
I haven’t experienced a great deal of shedding. If it seems to tangle or starts feeling coarse, I wash it with diluted shampoo, condition, and it’s back to feeling soft. I have braided it for extra waves, used flexi rods, etc. to style the clips to my liking. It is curly hair and can frizz like any human hair extensions would, but not excessively. When the hair is dampened, it goes back to its wavy pattern, which I consider a plus as some clips lose pattern altogether.
Absolutely love the hair! Great quality at an excellent price! Will reorder when needed!
