Higher Than We Deserve
I confessed months in the past to taking the plunge and putting in extensions, full blown extensions, to have long hair. I had been growing it out, and whereas I loved my shoulder size bob (some days I still miss it) I really wished to strive lengthy, flowing hair.
Properly, my hairdresser talked me into making an attempt TAPE IN EXTENSIONS
How is this even attainable I wasn’t certain I believed it until one among the other hairdressers confirmed me hers.
All clean (no bumps from the weft) she will be able to wear hats with ease, and best 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 form of loving my hair-
so right here is a listing of pros and cons (in comparison with having a weft sewn in)
after having them long enough to get them moved up.
*You overlook they’re in- literally. They feel so natural, you’ll be able to lay anyway, put on any hat, lean again anytime.
Not so with a few wefts of hair throughout your head.
*Hair style time is much quicker. There just isn’t one thick mass of hair, so it doesn’t take as lengthy to dry.
*It is far faster to get them put in- and much much less painful.
*No discomfort time ready for them to ‘loosen’ and grow out a day or two, these really feel great the minute they are put in
*I really feel they appear extra natural when styled
They seem like this (you sort of should look shut)
Are you able to see the strip of hair inserted (about an inch and a half or so) at my temple
(please ignore gray roots which are additionally a bit frizzy)
I have about 10-12 of those throughout my head, so the extensions sit extra like clip ins, when you’ve got ever used these.
*They are 10 inch deep wave weave small and also you do neglect the place they are- which implies if you’re not cautious you might snag them, so be vigilant about using the proper brush!
*They take a little bit longer to take away from the hair for the process of being moved up, and are available out sticky. Since I kind of help my hairdresser my arms get sticky as I peel off the previous adhesive and apply a brand new bit of tape.
*You might must “tuck” them in once you pull your hair up- simply ensure they’re lined by your personal hair and not exhibiting
*They are often more expensive. I use the BABE brand, and they’re considerably greater than my different extensions, however the hair is LOVELY and so soft. I actually find it irresistible
That is about it for the cons- not a variety of dangerous to say. I notice my hair grow out sooner, but they are so delicate and comfy, I actually forget I have extensions in at all.
Anyway, my final put up generated a number of visitors, and I’ve received a ton of emails with questions about my hair (why is it no one desires to discuss their hair extensions ) so I needed to put up an replace, and perhaps should you have been one of many people afraid of having a giant piece sewn in, you would possibly like this new alternative.
Not to mention- it’s fall (yay!) so bring on the beanies!
I’ve acquired a number of emails and questions on if these pulled my hair out. I by no means had an issue with that. My hairdresser used an adhesive launch that made most of the tape pieces work out. Some took a bit of effort, however my hair didn’t break and it at all times felt fine. After 18 months I have gone back to my natural hair, largely for simplicity and time. You can see on this publish the way it looks after that yr and half, of which I pulled out my extensions to maneuver them up each 5 weeks. It did not harm my hair at all, the truth is, I felt like my hair grew better due to the strength and volume the extensions added.
For the document- I purchased these jeans after reading a blog submit on avoiding ‘mom jeans’- and i kid you not, I adopted her tips and located a pair that handed all her standards, at SHOPKO, no much less.
These jeans are magic. I wear them anywhere I do know a digital camera will likely be (i.e.25 yr class reunion). They’re probably the most flattering things in photographs..so do your personal research and figure out what jeans shall be greatest in your body sort.
Grab a beanie and zip up your boots..and enjoy the fall.
