Before and after using my marvellous Hair Extensions.

Hiya,

I recently showed you some amazing hair extensions from Irresistible Me see my post here
Today is the day I'm showing you my before and after photos.  This is how my hair normally looks - straight with a bit of lift from my backcombing plus tons of hairspray.  Now with these stunning hair extensions I'm thinking my hair looks along the lines of Eva Longoria, full of body, shine and volume - so much volume!
 
Here's a few photos of my normal hair without any enhancements.  As you can see it is thin, straight with no body.







The email suggested I study the video see here, to establish what colour would best suit me, what length and how thick I needed them to be.

Upon watching Irresistible me's video and chatting with my own hairdresser, I opted for 14 Inch length, 140g medium grade thickness in a gorgeous #2 Chocolate Brown.*


Here's how I put them in....
I started off by sectioning the lowest part of my hair and clipping this up with a large butterfly clip, then opening the clip that's attached to the top of the hair extension, slide onto the hair at the root (by the parting) and clip in place, remove the bulldog clip then repeat further up the head. Then moving to the side, using the same routine until all extensions are used.
I felt for my head I could use maybe two or three less, but that will depend on where I'm going and how much volume I want.






I felt quite nervous having never used clip in extensions before, but they were so easy and straightforward to use, so with practice will probably only take me a few minutes to put them all in.







I'm delighted with how these hair extensions have turned out, they are SO voluminous, I've never had so much hair!  They felt bouncy and swishy, I kept swirling my head around enjoying the feeling of an ample head of hair for once! Even with all this movement they didn't move an inch, they stayed firmly in place - super!








I now feel the volume that's been added using these cheap hair extensions will allow me to create various up do's in a very quick and easy manor.  I'll be practising in the next few days and sharing my efforts next week. I'll also be styling these clip in hair extensions along with my own hair with my heated tongs, creating some gorgeous curls. Hope you'll be popping back to see them.

You'll not be disappointed to buy and use this product, and can have luscious long and/or thick locks,  you can then wait for the envious stares and approving compliments.



Thanking my god-daughter Esther-Ruby for her wonderful photos, and endless patience. x
Thanks for visiting, I hope I may have given you some inspiration to visit this website and purchase your own hair extensions.

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, but these opinions are my own and 100% honest.
Next week I'll be posting some great ideas for up-do's with these extensions, so I hope you can stop by.
Until the next time, it's been great. X

  8. The extensions look great, such a good colour match. Your hair is gorgeous without them too though! I've got a hair straightener from Irresistible Me and I love it. I recently won some hair extensions (I haven't got them yet) and had no idea how to put them in until I read this post. I'm looking forward to trying them out :-)

    1. Oh lucky you Emma, you'll love them. I wore some today and they look so natural! I don't need a straightener, more like a curling tong for me! I'll look forward to seeing them if you do a blog post about them. x
