Scorching Heads Extensions, Overview
Effectively, I finally went and took that step to have lengthy hair 24/7. Above is my before and after using Scorching Heads extensions!
^^ My Dirty Appears to be like extensions in 26″ inches.
To those who could not know, I’ve been carrying clip on Dirty Looks extensions for over two years. The one thing, is that since I’ve been on a health kick, and all my hair washing, the whole upkeep and staying matched to my extensions, clipping them on and off and styling has been pretty annoying. Now with summer weather being so scorching and all too, I am unable to even deliver myself to clip on the blanket of hair.
Now that I’ve a stylist I trust with my hair, I asked her a couple of extra permanent solution, and she advised me about Scorching Heads.
Now, I’ve had a historical past making an attempt out various kinds of extensions.
I’ve tried tape extensions like eight years ago, and that i hated them, particularly as a result of they had been so thick and lengthy and the develop out was horrible, and we had to make use of tape and heat to bond it, and that i actually wouldn’t do it once more. I’ve additionally tried keratin bonded extensions where you basically glue individual hairs to the root of your hair so as to add thickness and length, and that shed like crazy for me, and also you cannot reuse the hair you purchase. So, def not doing that once more. And clearly the one extension sort that I liked and caught with had been clip ins.
So, when my stylist advised me that Scorching Heads had been a type of tape in extension, I used to be Really antsy, but she was like, no, the tape is admittedly skinny, no heat is required, and the wefts are like 1″ inch and a half so grow out won’t be annoying and you will barely really feel them! So, after I did my $200 USD down cost, I waited every week for the hair to ship in and we were good to go.
Okay, so let’s break down the pricing at my salon and what it goes to~
So, the $200 down cost was to order the hair, which is 20 inches in size [6″ inches shorter than my common extensions, great for this sizzling weather] and that i used two packs, so $a hundred a pack I’m assuming The hair is real human hair with cuticles in hair weave accessories tact and going in the same path, so it lays flat and can be reused. Every pack has twenty 1 1/2 inch tapes that have the hair connected.
Which signifies that one pack will make 10 full wefts, since the tape sandwiches one piece of hair, like the image on the fitting.
Since my hair is on the thin side and relatively long, I only needed two packs, or 20 full wefts to fill out my hair for length and retrain a superb mix into my natural hair.
The remaining $450 I paid the day of application, with that price comes application, dye job, trim, and styling. Application, like my stylist mentioned, used no heat~ She just parted my hair where needed, worked in small sections and sandwiched these items on the separated sections of hair. She labored meticulously to maintain my hair trying balanced and blended. The application process only took 45 minutes.
So, that day we stopped there. Since, my hair is a really custom color, Scorching Heads didn’t have a matching hair shade. Which,by the way in which, they’ve a tremendous collection of colours and hair textures, from blondes to blacks, darkish roots to ombres, vivid purples, blues and reds to even a new choice of pastels, they even had my outdated pastel pink hair color as an accessible hair shade!
But, back on observe, pun supposed, since we would have liked to colour the extensions to blend, we scheduled for me to come in in three days, so the tapes may bond, since you’re not supposed to wet the tapes for at least 48 hours to verify they’re securely bonded together. So, after that, I went in to touch up my hair color and get the extensions dyed along with it. She also helped to teach me how I should wash my hair and to also use products which can be sulfate free, because sulfates can break down the bond of the tapes. By the best way, the extensions blended even better, did not know that was doable, and felt more pure after being washed. I then had my fringe trimmed since I did not want to layer the hair or take of any length, and then styles by my stylist, which was wen the top photograph was taken.
This is how the weft appears, it is truly barely seen and blends very well with my hair. I also can model my hair nevertheless I please, even throw it into a high pony tail for the gym or even french braid my hair without any concern~ I also can run my hand over my hair and although my hair and never feel the wefts, which is pretty good. It’s also very light, with minimal sheddding.
I did not think there’d be such a distinct feeling between my clip in hair and this hair however there definitely is! Whereas my clip ins felt like this sticky blanket when I was sweaty or it was hot/humid, this hair did not feel like that at all, it just felt like regular hair and did not feel as uncomfortable. I wasn’t expecting that kind of relief or that that ‘blanket’ feeling would go away, however I was ecstatic that this hair differed from my clip ins in that method.. Which also made me kind of question the standard of my previous extensions, though I loved them, cause this is really how real human hair should really feel.
The new Heads extensions do not need to be moved up for 2-3 months depending how briskly your hair grows and could be reused 2-four instances, so they have a 12 months life span, which is great! It kind of helped to make my resolution as a result of The Soiled Appears Extensions are just over $200 USD and i should change them each 6 months, on the dot~ So, regardless that the new Heads were a little bit of an funding, in the long run it’s just a bit more than what I’ve already been spending on my hair..
