Higher Than We Deserve
I confessed months ago to taking the plunge and putting in extensions, full blown extensions, to have long hair. I had been rising it out, and whereas I loved my shoulder size bob (some days I nonetheless miss it) I actually needed to try lengthy, flowing hair.
Properly, my hairdresser talked me into trying TAPE IN EXTENSIONS
How is that this even doable I wasn’t sure I believed it till one among the other hairdressers confirmed me hers.
All clean (no bumps from the weft) she will be able to put on hats with ease, and better of all-
no tight scalp or pulling head after you get your extensions moved up.
I tried it- and first, let me show a shot of my hair
I’m kind of loving my hair-
so here is a listing of professionals and cons (in comparison with having a weft sewn in)
after having them lengthy sufficient to get them moved up.
*You neglect they’re in- actually. They feel so pure, you can lay anyway, wear any hat, lean back anytime.
Not so with a couple of wefts of hair throughout your head.
*Hair fashion time is way quicker. There isn’t one thick mass of hair, so it would not take as long to dry.
*It is much quicker to get them put in- and far much less painful.
*No discomfort time ready for them to ‘loosen’ and develop out a day short hairstyles for me or two, these really feel nice the minute they are put in
*I really feel they appear more natural when styled
They appear to be this (you type of need to look close)
Can you see the strip of hair inserted (about an inch and a half or so) at my temple
(please ignore gray roots which can be additionally a bit frizzy)
I’ve about 10-12 of these throughout my head, so the extensions sit more like clip ins, if in case you have ever used these.
*They’re small and you do neglect where they’re- which suggests if you are not careful you can snag them, so be vigilant about utilizing the appropriate brush!
*They take a bit longer to remove from the hair for the means of being moved up, and are available out sticky. Since I form of assist my hairdresser my arms get sticky as I peel off the outdated adhesive and apply a new little bit of tape.
*You could need to “tuck” them in whenever you pull your hair up- simply be certain they are covered by your personal hair and not exhibiting
*They can be costlier. I exploit the BABE model, and they’re significantly more short hairstyles for me than my other extensions, however the hair is LOVELY and so smooth. I really like it
That’s about it for the cons- not numerous bad to say. I notice my hair grow out faster, but they are so mushy and comfortable, I truthfully overlook I have extensions in in any respect.
Anyway, my last submit generated lots of site visitors, and I have received a ton of emails with questions about my hair (why is it nobody needs to discuss their hair extensions ) so I needed to publish an replace, and possibly should you had been one of the individuals afraid of getting a giant piece sewn in, you would possibly like this new various.
Not to say- it’s fall (yay!) so carry on the beanies!
I’ve acquired plenty of emails and questions on if these pulled my hair out. I never had an issue with that. My hairdresser used an adhesive launch that made a lot of the tape items work out. Some took slightly effort, but my hair didn’t break and it all the time felt fine. After 18 months I have gone back to my pure hair, largely for simplicity and time. You possibly can see in this submit the way it looks after that year and half, of which I pulled out my extensions to move them up each 5 weeks. It did not damage my hair at all, actually, I felt like my hair grew higher because of the power and volume the extensions added.
For the file- I purchased these denims after studying a blog put up on avoiding ‘mom denims’- and that i child you not, I followed her tips and found a pair that handed all her criteria, at SHOPKO, no much less.
These jeans are magic. I put on them anyplace I know a camera will likely be (i.e.25 yr class reunion). They are the most flattering issues in photos..so do your own research and work out what denims will likely be best in your body kind.
Seize a beanie and zip up your boots..and benefit from the fall.
