Hair Extensions....Best ones and Hair-care tips!

Heyyy! For all use peeps who follow me on Facebook...you may have noticed that I posted a picture of my new hair! After doing so I have had a few requests to do a post about hair extensions so here it goes!

I like many other girls, for years have had that problem of finding a good hair extension that is also thick and believable! Well I have news for you! I have tried lots of different extensions from cheap clip ins to expensive ones, microloops and weaves and I have FINALLY found the one that I cannot live without!

Before that however I have experimented with clip ins and microloops. At the time I loved having microloop extensions however after having them in for nearly a year I got sick of being able to see the small loops when I went to tie my hair up. I also found that after a while my hair would get very matted and I ended up loosing a considerable amount of hair so therefore I decided to opt out and go back to trusty old clip in extensions. 

I must admit, I absolutely love clip in's too...If you get good quality ones! I would highly recommend HeadKandy hair extensions. They are super thick, quality hair extensions that come in lots of good shades. I tended to get 3 of the triple wefts or the full head sets to ensure it met with the thickness of my own hair. After a while I decided to get these weaved into my hair and were great for a while however I wouldn't recommend them for long term/everyday wear as they tend to matte and lose the healthy appearance after a while. 

Whilst being in Miss Scotland a few of the girls had weaves done. I have been very wary of weaves in the past and was unsure of the safety of my own hair and whether or not I would like the feeling of it. After hearing their positive experiences and seeing the amazing quality of the hair I decided to give it a try! Firstly, as I explained before I got the HeadKandy extensions weaved into my hair but now I get the Virgin Remy extensions supplied by my own hairdresser, OHMG who are based in Glasgow. This salon is a hidden gem! My friends and I agree that it is the best place to get your hair extensions done at such a reasonable price! I cannot recommend them enough and I have never been so happy with my hair! <3 Weave hair extensions can vary in price between £200-£300 but it is absolutely worth it. Onn average they can last anything from 2months to 6months! Just depending on how well you care for the hair and whether or not you may need the (weave tightened which depends on your own hair growth).

Here are a few photographs of my hair before and after!



As you can see my hair is a lot more longer and thicker! The best way to keep it in good condition because it obviously won't get natural oils that your own hair will is by using Moroccan Oil. This keeps it nice and soft and prevents you from getting split ends. 

It is also best not to wash your weave every time you wash your own hair as this will dry your weave out and leave it in not so great condition. Therefore wash the top of your hair as required but pin your weave back to stop it from getting wet. Then wash your full head of hair (weave and own hair) every 1-2weeks. If necessary use dry shampoo.

It is also important to pleat your weave when you are going to bed to prevent any tangles or matting.

I hope this has all been helpful for anyone who might be considering a weave!

If you have any questions or comments please leave them below and I will msg ya back asap!

  3. I agree, I am pretty sure I have tried every kind of hair extension out there. Only recently I came across goddess remi, and Oh my gosh! I have never found something that looks so natural and yet comfortable. I have had mine in for about 3 weeks now, I still get compliments, and people can't believe it's not my real hair. Thanks for sharing your hair experience, your extensions look great!

  6. Your hair definitely is thicker! I love the way that the extensions look so natural. I can’t even notice which ones they are! Since hair extensions lack the oils your hair produces naturally, it would be good to also condition them. Gently massage the hair extensions with conditioner, from top to bottom.

  9. They do look so natural! And they don’t look dry at all. I love it! One friendly tip when you plan to wear your hair up and want to add some volume to it: Place your clip-in upside down against your natural hair roots. The hair extensions will be facing the right direction in this manner, which will add volume to your hair but would still definitely look natural. ; )

  21. Another popular option when it comes to having additions, is to have the artificial type of additions which is the less expensive choice as as opposed to individual additions and as opposed to what other people might say, artificial additions actually looks just as natural as the individual additions that are extremely expensive.

  26. Hair Extensions come with a lot of uses. The biggest factor is to make your hair appear longer. Girls with short hair, who want to add length to their hair, can add hair extensions to achieve those results. If you already have long hair, you might want some extensions to add body. Not every girl is fortunate to have full, voluminous hair, and it can be added with hair extensions. Straight Tape In Hair Extensions also can be used for people who have long hair, and want to rock a short hairstyle. Lastly, if you want some added highlights or a few crazy colors in your hair, but do not want to damage your hair by bleaching and dyeing your hair, then extensions like those from abhair will give you what you want without the damage.
