Review: Hair extensions

I was bored last week and decided to cut two inches off my hair. It doesn't look like I got attacked by a lawn mower, but doing a DIY haircut really isn't the same as going to a professional.  Thankfully, I got some hair extensions that give me back the layers and length that I hacked away.


I'm using Cliphair's Double Weft extensions in darkest brown. After choosing the colour and length you want, each pack comes with extensions of multiple widths that are made with genuine human hair that can be cut, curled/straightened, and dyed. The extensions clip easily underneath the back of your hair for added length and volume.


Before

After

There's a noticeable difference in the length of my hair, but I'm more excited about how much extra hair and volume I get with the extensions. As someone with super thin hair (and not a lot of it), it's pretty great having enough hair to fall over my shoulders and onto my back at the same time. The extensions matched my hair colour perfectly, even giving me a bit of a highlight, and was soft and lightweight. Also, it's a bit weird getting used to extensions, but in a good way. Running my fingers through my hair, I was left wondering which bits were my own hair and which bits were the extensions.  It's definitely a good sign when even I have trouble telling them apart.
