I have always been the girl with thin hair. Sorry, some people don’t like that term, they prefer “fine” hair. Thin, fine, I have it. I have always had this fear of going bald and whenever I see hair fall out I panic a tad. I know that losing hair when you shower or brush it is natural, but since my hair is so thin it always manages to freak me out a bit.
Hair extensions have always intrigued me but I never knew where to start because they just seemed so complicated. Due to this I never tried any out.
Then I was contacted by Irresistible Me, a company based in the Fashion District of New York. They asked if I would be interested in trying out some extensions so I jumped at the chance!
After browsing the website I decided to try out a ponytail extension. I chose the Medium Brown (#4) in a length of 20 inches.
The package soon arrived and I was very eager to try out the product!
Though a tad dented, the box was gorgeous!
I wasn’t expecting such a fun box! Yes little things like those make me happy, and add such a positive touch.
Inside the box they were wrapped up perfectly, so they didn’t arrive knotted at all.
I really appreciated how they came packaged not only because it prevented them from arriving knotted, but also because it is a resealable package, so now I just keep my extensions stored in the original packaging.
The extensions themselves were longer than I had imagined. I guess I didn’t realize how long 20 inches actually is! But this worked out perfectly. The extensions are so thick, which for my thin hair is a blessing!
I couldn’t fit it all in one shot!
The color arrived with a red tone, which I didn’t notice from the pictures on the website. At first I was a little unsure how it would look in the end, then I realized, who cares? Two toned hair colors are in right now, and when I decide to dye my hair next I can dye the extensions as well. The information with the extensions give all the details for dying and washing the extensions.
These extensions don’t need to be washed after every use if you’re careful with them.
I never understood how extensions stayed put once in the hair. These ones were the perfect starting extensions for me because all I do is clip them in, and then tie them around my ponytail. Once tied around you can’t even tell that I’m wearing any extensions because they blend in very well.
Some options for tying the ribbon in your hair. You can either wrap the ribbon around the pony and tie it in a bow underneath (or even on top for a cute added touch!) or what I’ve been doing is wrapping it around several times, then using a bobby pin to hide the ribbon under the pony. With the bobby pin keeping the ribbon in place you can’t even see it.
Another option is to use the bobby pin to hold the ribbon in place, and then take a small section of the hair and wrap it around to cover the hair elastic and ribbon. Yeah, I can be pretty fashionable!
I have been testing them out everyday and have a favorite way to wear them.
I do like them as a ponytail, but since I’m used to having hardly any hair I find the ponytail quite heavy on my neck. I can’t see this being an issue for most people though because most people don’t have hair as thin as mine and would be used to the weight. (Tip, you can also choose the weight of your hair in grams. You get the same amount of hair no matter how many grams you choose, so you aren’t being skimped out on if you choose a lighter weight!)
There is a before and after of my hair without the extensions, and then with them. These photos just prove how long and thick these extensions are!
When I have been wearing the extensions in the pony it has been a low pony at the back of my head, and draped over one shoulder. It looks really pretty and glamorous that way. Think special occasion.
The way that I have been wearing my extensions have been in a messy bun on top of my head.
You don’t even know how happy this has made me!
I have always loved the messy bun look but since my hair is so thin it just looked bad on me and I would never leave the house with my hair in a bun.
But these extensions blend in so good and actually look amazing as a messy bun! So now I have the confidence to leave the house with a messy bun, which I never could before 🙂
I’ll show you some embarrassing before hair photos, and then show you the after extensions photos.
There’s pretty much nothing there right? So embarrassing.
Once I put in the extensions though it was a whole other story!
The extensions are huge and give my thin hair SO much extra volume. I really love it!
I think my messy bun looks so much better with the extensions. And also, I don’t feel any added weight on my neck, so I’ve been able to wear them all day without getting a sore neck or a head ache.
The extensions are a bit pricey but honestly, I haven’t had any shedding, they are a really good thick quality and I know I will use them a lot.
Since I have had such a great experience with this product I have been browsing their website a lot and I am pretty sure I will be ordering some regular hair extensions soon!
I am very happy with this product and am so glad that I was given out the opportunity to live out my messy bun dreams with these hair extensions.
They have given me confidence with my hair that I never expected, and are so easy to clip in and clip out. I already know that I want to get the regular clip in extensions to try out now.
Looks like a hair extension addiction may be coming on!
Thanks a ton to Irresistible Me for offering to send me this product in exchange for a review, I love them! If you want to check out their website I linked them in this paragraph and the first one. Just click where I said Irresistible Me.
