Higher Than We Deserve
I confessed months ago to taking the plunge and placing in extensions, full blown extensions, to have lengthy hair. remy I had been rising it out, and while I loved my shoulder length bob (some days I still miss it) I really needed to try lengthy, flowing hair.
Properly, my hairdresser talked me into making an attempt TAPE IN EXTENSIONS
How is that this even possible I wasn’t positive I believed it until one in every of the opposite hairdressers showed me hers.
All clean (no bumps from the weft) she can wear hats with ease, and better of all-
no tight scalp or pulling head after you get your extensions moved up.
I tried it- and first, let me show a shot of my hair
I’m kind of loving my hair-
so right here is a listing of professionals and cons (in comparison with having a weft sewn in)
after having them lengthy sufficient to get them moved up.
*You neglect they’re in- actually. They really feel so natural, you possibly can lay anyway, wear any hat, lean back anytime.
Not so with a couple of wefts of hair throughout your head.
*Hair model time is way quicker. There isn’t one thick mass of hair, so it does not take as long to dry.
*It is much faster to get them put in- and far much less painful.
*No discomfort time waiting for them to ‘loosen’ and grow out a day or two, these really feel great the minute they’re put in
*I feel they look extra pure when styled
They look like this (you sort of must look close)
Can you see the strip of hair inserted (about an inch and a half or so) at my temple
(please ignore grey roots that are also a bit frizzy)
I’ve about 10-12 of those all around my head, so the extensions sit extra like clip ins, if in case you have ever used those.
*They’re small and you do neglect the place they are- which implies if you’re not careful you might snag them, so be vigilant about utilizing the proper brush!
*They take just a little longer to remove from the hair for the technique of being moved up, and come out sticky. Since I sort of help my hairdresser my hands get sticky as I peel off the previous adhesive and apply a new bit of tape.
*You may must “tuck” them in while you pull your hair up- just make certain they are lined by your individual hair and not displaying
*They are often dearer. I costume wigs sale use the BABE model, and they are considerably more than my different extensions, however the hair is LOVELY and so delicate. I really find it irresistible
That is about it for the cons- not a variety of bad to say. I notice my hair grow out quicker, however they are so mushy and snug, I actually overlook I’ve extensions in in any respect.
Anyway, my last publish generated a variety of visitors, and I have obtained a ton of emails with questions about my hair (why is it no person desires to talk about their hair extensions ) so I wanted to submit an update, and perhaps in the event you were one of many folks afraid of having a big piece sewn in, you might like this new various.
Not to mention- it is fall (yay!) so deliver on the beanies!
I have received loads of emails and questions about if these pulled my hair out. I by no means had a problem with that. My hairdresser used an adhesive launch that made a lot of the tape pieces work out. Some took a little bit effort, however my hair did not break and it at all times felt high quality. After 18 months I’ve gone again to my natural hair, mostly for simplicity and time. You possibly can see on this publish how it takes care of that yr and half, of which I pulled out my extensions to maneuver them up every 5 weeks. It did not injury my hair in any respect, in truth, I felt like my hair grew better due to the strength and volume the extensions added.
For the file- I bought these denims after reading a blog publish on avoiding ‘mother denims’- and that i kid you not, I followed her tips and located a pair that passed all her criteria, at SHOPKO, no less.
These denims are magic. I wear them anyplace I do know a digital camera shall be (i.e.25 year class reunion). They’re essentially the most flattering things in pictures..so do your individual research and figure out what denims will likely be finest on your physique type.
Seize a beanie and zip up your boots..and enjoy the fall.
