Higher Than We Deserve
I confessed months ago to taking the plunge and putting in extensions, full blown extensions, to have lengthy hair. I had been rising it out, and whereas I cherished my shoulder size bob (some days I still miss it) I actually needed to strive lengthy, flowing hair.
Effectively, my hairdresser talked me into trying TAPE IN EXTENSIONS
How is that this even doable I wasn’t positive I believed it till one among the opposite hairdressers confirmed me hers.
All clean (no bumps from the weft) she will 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 show 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 long enough to get them moved up.
*You overlook they’re in- actually. They feel so pure, you may lay anyway, put on any hat, lean again anytime.
Not so with a few wefts of hair throughout your head.
*Hair type time is way faster. There isn’t one thick mass of hair, so it doesn’t take as lengthy to dry.
*It is way faster to get them put in- and much much less painful.
*No discomfort time ready for them to ‘loosen’ and grow out a day or two, these feel great the minute they are put in
*I really feel they appear extra pure when styled
They seem like this (you sort of need to look close)
Can you see the strip of hair inserted (about an inch and a half or so) at my temple
(please ignore gray roots which are additionally a bit frizzy)
I have about 10-12 of those all around my head, so the extensions sit extra like clip ins, when you’ve got ever used those.
*They are small and also you do forget where they’re- which implies if you are not careful you may snag them, so be vigilant about utilizing the correct brush!
*They take a bit 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 Since I kind of assist my hairdresser my arms get sticky as I peel off the outdated adhesive and apply a new little bit of tape.
*Chances are you’ll must “tuck” them in while you pull your hair up- simply be certain they are coated by your individual hair and never showing
*They can be dearer. I exploit the BABE model, and they’re significantly greater than my different extensions, however the hair is LOVELY and so tender. I volumizer hair piece really like it
That’s about it for the cons- not a variety of dangerous to say. I discover my hair develop out quicker, however they are so soft and snug, I truthfully overlook I’ve extensions in at all.
Anyway, my last publish generated numerous site visitors, and I’ve acquired a ton of emails with questions on my hair (why is it no person needs to speak about their hair extensions ) so I needed to publish an update, and possibly if you were one of the people afraid of getting a giant piece sewn in, you may like this new alternative.
Not to mention- it’s fall (yay!) so deliver on the beanies!
I’ve obtained a whole lot of emails and questions about if these pulled my hair out. I by no means had an issue with that. My hairdresser used an adhesive launch that made a lot of the tape pieces work out. Some took somewhat effort, however my hair didn’t break and it all the time felt positive. After 18 months I’ve gone back to my natural hair, mostly for simplicity and time. You can see on this submit how it looks after that yr and half, of which I pulled out my extensions to maneuver them up each 5 weeks. It didn’t injury my hair at all, in reality, I felt like my hair grew higher because of the strength and volume the extensions added.
For the report- I bought these jeans after reading a blog post on avoiding ‘mother jeans’- and that i child you not, I adopted her tips and found a pair that passed all her criteria, at SHOPKO, no less.
These denims are magic. I put on them anyplace I do know a camera will be (i.e.25 yr class reunion). They’re the most flattering issues in photographs..so do your own research and determine what denims shall be finest in your physique kind.
Grab a beanie and zip up your boots..and benefit from the fall.
