I love hair extensions, to a certain extent. I love that I can have long hair in 10 minutes just by clipping in a few bits of hair. You can curl them, straighten them, dye them - everything you'd do to your own hair, just a lot longer! But what I hate is how heavy clip ins are. How uncomfortable they are to sleep in. How you have to backcomb your hair so much just to get them to stay in. They're just a full on pain in the arse!
So after months of deliberating and searching round for someone who wasn't going to charge me an arm and a leg, I've finally got some more permanent extensions. They are bonded hair extensions which means that individual strands of hair are applied with a keratin bonding to your own hair, as close to the scalp as can be applied. So unlike a weave, or glue in strips, they are not bad for your hair.
After just one day I adore them already, and apparently when they first go in they look the worst. After washing, the bonds soften a tad so aren't as uncomfortable to sleep in, and they volumnise by around 10%. So once we finally get hot water back in our house (gas leak, long story) I can't wait to see how they look! But for now they're pretty sleek and shiny and lovely! I'd recommend to everyone!
