Scorching Heads Extensions, Evaluate
Nicely, I finally went and took that step to have lengthy hair 24/7. Above is my before and after utilizing Scorching Heads extensions!
^^ My Dirty Appears extensions in 26″ inches.
To those that may not know, I’ve been wearing clip on Soiled Seems to be extensions for over two years. The one factor, is that since I have been on a health kick, and all my hair washing, the entire upkeep and staying matched to my extensions, clipping them on and off and styling has been fairly annoying. Now with summer weather being so sizzling and all too, I am unable to even bring myself to clip on the blanket of hair.
Now that I’ve a stylist I belief with my hair, I asked her a few more permanent resolution, and she advised me about Scorching Heads.
Now, I’ve had a history trying out different types of extensions.
I’ve tried tape extensions like eight years in the past, and that i hated them, particularly as a result of they have been so thick and lengthy and the develop easy hairstyles for long hair to do at home videos out was horrible, and we had to use tape and heat to bond it, and that i truthfully would not do it once more. I’ve also tried keratin bonded extensions where you principally glue particular person hairs to the root of your hair to add thickness and size, and that shed like crazy for me, and also you cannot reuse the hair you purchase. So, def not doing that again. And clearly the one extension kind that I cherished and caught with had been clip ins.
So, when my stylist told me that Sizzling Heads were a kind easy hairstyles for long hair to do at home videos of tape in extension, I used to be Actually antsy, however she was like, no, the tape is de facto thin, no heat is required, and the wefts are like 1″ inch and a half so develop out will not be annoying and you’ll barely really feel them! So, after I did my $200 USD down payment, I waited per week for the hair to ship in and we have been good to go.
Okay, so let’s break down the pricing at my salon and what it goes to~
So, the $200 down payment was to order the hair, which is 20 inches in length [6″ inches shorter than my regular extensions, great for this hot weather] and i used two packs, so $100 a pack I’m assuming The hair is real human hair with cuticles in tact and going in the same direction, so it lays flat and may be reused. Every pack has twenty 1 1/2 inch tapes that have the hair connected.
Which means that one pack will make 10 full wefts, because the tape sandwiches one piece of hair, like the picture on the best.
Since my hair is on the skinny side and comparatively long, I solely needed two packs, or 20 full wefts to fill out my hair for size and retrain a great blend into my pure hair.
The remaining $450 I paid the day of application, with that value comes application, dye job, trim, and styling. Application, like my stylist said, used no heat~ She simply parted my hair the place needed, labored in small sections and sandwiched those items on the separated sections of hair. She labored meticulously to maintain my hair looking balanced and blended. The applying course of only took 45 minutes.
So, that day we stopped there. Since, my hair is a really custom color, Scorching Heads did not have a matching hair shade. Which,by the way, they’ve an incredible number of colours and hair textures, from blondes to blacks, dark roots to ombres, vivid purples, blues and reds to even a new number of pastels, they even had my old pastel pink hair color as an obtainable hair shade!
But, again on monitor, pun meant, since we would have liked to colour the extensions to blend, we scheduled for me to are available in 3 days, so the tapes could bond, since you’re not presupposed to wet the tapes for a minimum of forty eight hours to make sure they’re securely bonded collectively. So, after that, I went in to contact up my hair color and get the extensions dyed together with it. She additionally helped to show me how I should wash my hair and to additionally use products which are sulfate free, as a result of sulfates can break down the bond of the tapes. By the way in which, the extensions blended even better, did not know that was doable, and felt more pure after being washed. I then had my fringe trimmed since I didn’t wish to layer the hair or take of any size, and then styles by my stylist, which was wen the highest photograph was taken.
This is how the weft seems, it is actually barely seen and blends rather well with my hair. I can also model my hair nonetheless I please, even throw it into a excessive pony tail for the gym and even french braid my hair without any problem~ I can even run my hand over my hair and though my hair and never feel the wefts, which is pretty good. It’s also very mild, with minimal sheddding.
I didn’t think there’d be such a different feeling between my clip in hair and this hair however there definitely is! Whereas my clip ins felt like this sticky blanket when I used to be sweaty or it was scorching/humid, this hair didn’t feel like that at all, it just felt like normal hair and did not really feel as uncomfortable. I wasn’t expecting that form of relief or that that ‘blanket’ feeling would go away, but I used to be ecstatic that this hair differed from my clip ins in that method.. Which also made me sort of question the quality of my past extensions, though I liked them, trigger this is admittedly how real human hair should really feel.
The hot Heads extensions don’t must be moved up for 2-3 months relying how briskly your hair grows and can be reused 2-4 instances, so they’ve a 12 months life span, which is nice! It type of helped to make my choice because The Dirty Seems Extensions are simply over $200 USD and that i have to substitute them every 6 months, on the dot~ So, though the new Heads have been a little bit of an funding, in the long term it is just a bit greater than what I’ve already been spending on my hair..
