Wow, it's been a long while since I sat down to write a post. Well, to my readers I've been here all along, but little do you know, I've kind of been on a hiatus for the past two months or so. Through the month of July I've actually been packing to move into a new house, and all of August I've been moving and unpacking. Finally I am at peace. A lot of my recent blog posts have been pre-written a long time ago and scheduled. The only blog related stuff I've been doing for the last two months were scheduling tweets, answering emails, and replying to comments.
I was considering taking a real hiatus where I didn't write anything at all, but I've been struck with a bunch of awesome pr samples, and I couldn't wait to share them all with you. I've been really unmotivated to write lately because of the stress of moving and other personal issues, but I'm happy that I'm continuing with my passion and still blogging weekly. Maybe I'll take a hiatus later on when the time comes.
I was offered the wonderful chance to try out Irresistible Me's hair extensions. When I was emailed about the product, I kind of thought to myself "why would I need hair extensions? My hair is already up to my butt!" And it really is. I haven't cut my hair in maybe even a year, and it's kind of long and super annoying now. I'll go on to explain my colour choice and length choice in a bit.
Regardless of having long hair already, I decided to give these extensions a shot, because I have another plan in store for them. Shall I tell you now? Nah. I'll save that for another post :)
Lets start with some fun information first. Irresistible Me offers two different types of clip in hair extensions: Silky Touch and Royal Remy.
Silky Touch is their budget line of clip in hair extensions, but are just as amazing as the Royal Remy. They're amazing quality at a friendly price. If you're new to hair extensions, but don't want to break the bank, these are the ones to go for.
Royal Remy is their premium hair line made from 100% human Remy hair. The difference between Remy hair and non Remy hair is that Remy hair is considered one of the finest quality of human hair, since the cuticles of the hair are still intact, giving them a very natural appearance. They are super soft and silky to the touch, and will definitely last a lot longer than the other line of extensions.
Arrived in a super nice cardboard box.
The hair is packaged in an air tight bag. One side has a weft of hair where you can try to see if you like it first, before opening up the whole package. What a great concept! Makes returning and exchanging a breeze in case someone chooses the wrong shade.
I went with the Royal Remy 24 inch 200g extensions in Royal Platinum Blonde. Of course my real hair isn't blonde, but I still have my platinum blonde streak that matches this shade perfectly, and I plan on doing something with the platinum blonde. Irresistible Me offers 6 lengths (14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24) and three weights (100g, 140g and 200g).
Oh my gosh. The hair is so damn soft. It's softer than my real hair. There were a few random black pieces of hair in the wefts but that's no big deal for me.
All of them nicely laid out and unstraightened.
When you order 200g weight of hair, you get more wefts of hair. I received 10 pieces. 1 super big piece that had four clips, 2 three clip pieces, 5 two clip pieces, and 2 one clip pieces.
I actually had no idea how to wear these extensions because this was actually my first time. I googled some videos and it was actually fairly easy to do.
Here is what the clip looks like when its opened. When you open the clip you press it against your head, and comb it downwards so the comb part of the clip catches onto your real hair. Then you press down until you hear a snap.
This is just to show you how long 24 inches is.
My real hair:
My hair currently is a multitude of colours. I'm planning to dye it and get a cut soon, so hopefully the extensions will look better once I get that done.
This is what they look like after straightening them.
I clipped in a few of the smaller wefts and voila. It now looks like I have a lot of blonde highlights instead of one streak!
Not bad for my first time.
Before and After:
It definitely adds a lot of weight and a lot of volume to my flat long hair. What a coincidence that my hair is just about 24 inches long as well haha. The quality is top notch with these extensions. When combing and straightening them, I experienced little to no hair breaking or falling out. They look completely natural, even though I bought a shade that didn't go with my real hair colour. It blended quite well, and made me look like I had highlights.
