Better Than We Deserve
I confessed months in the past to taking the plunge and placing in extensions, full blown extensions, to have lengthy hair. remy I had been rising it out, and whereas I beloved my shoulder length bob (some days I still miss it) I really needed to strive lengthy, flowing hair.
Properly, my hairdresser talked me into making an attempt TAPE IN EXTENSIONS
How is that this even doable I wasn’t certain I believed it until one among the other hairdressers showed me hers.
All clean (no bumps from the weft) she will be able to put on 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 present a shot of my hair
I am kind of loving my hair-
so right here is a list of execs and cons (compared to having a weft sewn in)
after having them lengthy sufficient to get them moved up.
*You overlook they are 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 across your head.
*Hair type time is way quicker. There isn’t one thick mass of hair, so it does not take as lengthy to dry.
*It is way faster to get them put in- and far less painful.
*No discomfort time waiting for them to ‘loosen’ and develop out a day or two, these really feel nice the minute they are put in
*I feel they give the impression of being extra natural when styled
They appear to be this (you sort of need to look shut)
Are you able to see the strip of hair inserted (about an inch and a half or so) at my temple
(please ignore grey roots that are additionally a bit frizzy)
I’ve about 10-12 of those all around my head, so the extensions sit extra like clip ins, you probably have ever used these.
*They’re small and you do overlook the place they are- which implies if you’re not cautious you possibly can snag them, so be vigilant about using the suitable brush!
*They take just a little longer to remove from the hair for the strategy of being moved up, and come out sticky. Since I kind of assist my hairdresser my palms get sticky as I peel off the previous adhesive and apply a brand new little bit of tape.
*You might must “tuck” them in whenever you pull your hair up- simply be sure they’re coated by your individual hair and never displaying
*They can be more expensive. I use the BABE model, and they are significantly greater than my different extensions, however the hair is LOVELY and so smooth. I actually adore it
That is about it for the cons- not loads of dangerous to say. I notice my hair grow out faster, however they are so mushy and snug, I truthfully overlook I have extensions in at all.
Anyway, my final submit generated loads of traffic, and I’ve acquired a ton of emails with questions about my hair (why is it no one wants to discuss their hair extensions ) so I needed to publish an replace, and possibly in case you were one of the folks afraid of getting a giant piece sewn in, you might like this new alternative.
Not to say- it is fall (yay!) so carry on the beanies!
I’ve acquired lots of emails and questions about if these pulled short thick hair women my hair out. I never had an issue with that. My hairdresser used an adhesive launch that made many of the tape pieces work out. Some took a little bit effort, but my hair didn’t break and it all the time felt fine. After 18 months I’ve gone back to my pure hair, largely for simplicity and time. You may see on this put up how it takes care of that yr and half, of which I pulled out my extensions to maneuver them up each 5 weeks. It did not harm my hair at all, in reality, I felt like my hair grew higher because of the energy and volume the extensions added.
For the report- I purchased these denims after studying a weblog put up on avoiding ‘mother jeans’- and that i child you not, I followed her ideas and found a pair that passed all her criteria, at SHOPKO, no less.
These denims are magic. I put on them anywhere I know a digital short thick hair women camera will likely be (i.e.25 yr class reunion). They’re essentially the most flattering issues in pictures..so do your individual analysis and work out what denims will be best on your physique type.
Seize a beanie and zip up your boots..and benefit from the fall.
