I mentioned these real hair extensions in my last post here, but today I will be giving you a detailed review!
I have been wanting clip in extensions for sometime now, so I jumped on this offer when Irresistible Me reached out to me. Searching their website it was a little difficult for me to figure out which color would match my hair best. They do have a video where they compare colors side by side and they have now added Instagram photos at the bottom of each product page showing real people wearing the specific color extensions. At first I ordered the Silky Touch Extensions in Honey Blonde. It was close to my hair color but it was a little too dark. Irresistible Me does not recommend adding highlights to the extensions. If you cannot find a perfect color match, they recommend buying a lighter shade and adding in low lights. Fortunately, the extensions are packaged where you can open a tester piece first to make sure the hair color matches. As long as you only open the tester piece, you are able to exchange the extensions for a different color. I ended up exchanging for the Platinum Blonde. They matched almost perfectly when I got them in. I recently got my hair done and added in some low lights. Right now my hair is a little ashier than the extensions, but I am going to try and use my purple shampoo on them to help them become a little more ashy. I will let you know if it works or not!
I am very happy with the thickness of these extensions. My hair is already a decent length, but I am always looking for ways to make my hair thicker. This Texas girl likes big hair!! These extensions help to add body and volume to my hair. For reference, I ordered the 22" Silky Touch 200 g in Platinum Blonde. It came with one 7.5" waft with 4 clips, two 6" wafts with 3 clips, five 4" wafts with 2 clips, and two 1.2" wafts with 1 clip. There is no way I could put every waft in my hair, but it is nice to have extras.
As for comfort, I wish I would have gotten the 20" extensions instead of the 22". The thickness along with the length, adds a lot of weight. Plus they are super long! They were a little uncomfortable the first time I wore them, but I wore them yesterday without much discomfort at all. I think placement has a lot to do with it. I have fine hair and not much of it, especially on the crown of my head. Also add in a few cow licks that don't allow my hair to lay flat, which makes hiding the extensions hard, so I had to strategically place them where they couldn't be seen. Since the hair is a lot longer than my natural hair, I couldn't just add 1-2 bigger wafts because there would be 2 definite lengths. I needed to add multiple wafts at different heights on my head so they would blend better. To keep them covered, I had to place them almost on top of each other which caused a little pulling.
Overall, I am very please with the extensions! I cannot attest to durability and lifespan since I have only had them for about 2 weeks. As of right now though, I would recommend them, especially for the price! They are some of the cheaper real hair extensions I have seen. They are also running a great 4th of July sale right now. Up to 30% off!
