I've always wished for long, luscious hair that even Rapunzel herself would envy. Well, maybe wouldn't go that far! Ever since I got the typical bob chop back in 2005, my hair never grew back to how long it originally was - which was past my bum! Such a mistake. I tried it all. Hair masks, regular cuts, you name it. Sadly, none of it has worked for me. So, for years I have been using hair extensions. I've tried a wide variety of brands, from the online empire that is Foxylocks.com and other, local markets. I recently gave up on them, as I grew tired of how heavy they felt clipping onto my roots all day long. However, when Dirtylooks.com kindly offered to send me their full-head clip-ins, I thought i'd give them another try...
Here are some before and after shots! The image to the left is of me with my normal, thin and medium-length hair. The image on the right is the hair extensions. BIG difference in my opinion. Having long hair just makes me feel so much more confident, and that's exactly what Dirtylooks.com have given me. The length that I chose was the 20-22" ones, (180g) as I didn't want them to be too long or too short. If you want long hair without looking too much like a Rapunzel twin, then that's the perfect length to choose.
As the hair extensions come in different size wefts, (10 to be exact) it's important to make sure they're put in right. What I was thoroughly impressed by, was that Dirtylooks already have the wefts numbered, so you know where to place each one. There's also a little diagram in their mini booklet which also assures you do it correctly with ease. Once you've placed the hair extensions in and blended them, you can style them how you would do your own hair. As these ones are quite thick, they're easily adaptable and fun to play around with - here are just some hairstyles that I quickly did.
