Better Than We Deserve
It has been a yr and half since I added extensions to my hair. I had a weft sewn in (a weave) for about 5 months, after which I switched to the Babe Tape-In extensions and had the same hair in for a bit over a year.
It was true love with my long locks.
I’ve by no means had hair this long, and certainly never had hair thick enough to look this lengthy- or cute in messy bun, or pony-tail. Let’s face it, long hair is just Pretty!
But this summer time I used to be getting antsy over my hair. The tape wasn’t working properly so I wanted to take a position in additional hair, but wasn’t sure I wanted to do it. My ever patient and tremendous flexible hair-dresser said “simply take them out, and should you miss them put them again later.” Oh. Yeah. Straightforward peesy. Why will we get so dramatic over our hair
So with a slip of adhesive release and a few tangles to untangle I was extension free. I had them in for 18 months, so my hair hadn’t been cut in that lengthy. You’ll be able to remember my quick bob from this submit. I used to be struggling to develop it out.
We added ombres as a result of I really like them (particularly for summer time) and this was me on the drive home from my salon visit.
I was completely shocked at how lengthy my hair regarded, even with the extensions gone.
Right here is one other shot I took after coming house and re-doing my hair (gotta be sure that I can re-create the type on my own!)
In spite of the bizarre lighting in this image I actually do love the way my hair looks now. We barely trimmed up just a few straggly ends, so it remains to be just a little bit asymmetrical and an extended, lengthy A-line. I like it. Here’s a shot of the again.
Once more, simply seek advice from my former photos and you will notice- that is plenty of development for 18 months. In case you are significantly in a rut growing out your hair get some good extensions and simply give your hair a yr or so to do it is factor. I feel the thickness helps protects it and let’s that size add up properly. The perfect half is now I could simply keep on with my own hair and forget the extensions.
It’s so fast to scrub and magnificence my hair now, and it is easier to handle when styling. I misplaced the thick, glamorous look, however I actually am pleased with this size and elegance for now. You additionally cannot beat the money saved (extensions add up, you know) that I really feel like I can spend on different goodies in my life. So for now my love affair with my extensions has come to finish, however I believe again on them with fondness and can all hairstyles for 50 year old woman with curly hair the time love them for the time we had.
