Hair extensions: c/o Irresistible Me- 20" 200g Royal Highlights in Light Brown and Golden Blonde
A couple of facts about me:
1. Up until a couple of months ago, a had never permanently colored or bleached my hair
2. I've always desperately wanted hair extensions.
I'm a complete hair chicken. I've been growing out my hair since I was sixteen and the thought of doing anything too dramatic to it has always been scary. Experimenting with hair that is two feet long (and in relatively good condition) is intimidating. What if I damage it so badly that I have to cut off most of it? That's eight years of hair growing down the drain. I don't know if my poor little mind could take the mental anguish.
And yes, my hair is long so it may seem strange to want hair extensions. But adding length is not the only function of hair extensions. I love the fullness they provide. Have you tried making a big chunky braid but found you just don't have enough hair, no matter how much pulling out and pancaking you attempt? Hair extensions are the solution my friends. Prepare yourselves for a big, chunky braid in one of my posts this week.
A couple of months ago I finally got up the courage to do a subtle blonde balayage in my hair. I loved it but have been considering adding even more blond. The great thing about the extensions I received from Irresistible Me is that they have allowed me to achieve both of my dreams (of having colored hair and extensions) without the risk of messing up my actual hair. I've gotten to see what it would be like to have a more obvious balayage and I like it. Bring on the blonde.
Until I add more blonde to my hair, I'm using these extensions mainly for the volume they add to keep things looking more natural. After my next hair appointment though, I'm also going to use them more for lengthening as well.
They come in a bunch of different colors (you can see them here) and if you're hair has multiple colors like mine, you can order custom highlight extensions where you get to pick two colors. I've been really impressed by the quality of mine. They are really soft and silky and they curl really well.
There are a bunch of videos on the website you can watch to determine which color is right for you. Plus there are free exchanges and returns (except with custom ones) so you can try them out risk free. So if, like me, you secretly desire to be Rapunzel (or you just like long, full hair), then these extensions are for you.
