So here’s the low-down: I currently have thin, short hair but it was only five years ago that my hair was past my waistline. When I was a little girl, I had a pixie cut and it wasn’t until I was about ten years old that I was able to grow it out. I had longed to be Rapunzel for my whole life and I was thrilled to finally experience the many options that the length had to offer. Like most girls, I switched up my style frequently throughout high school. I highlighted it, I dyed it red for the first time, but I let the layers and side-swept bangs I had in middle school grow out. Everything was the same length until I graduated. I took a leap of faith and chopped it all off into a bob. I kept it short until last year when I decided that I missed the length and began the journey of growing it back out. However, due to health struggles and a vitamin deficiency, my hair has a hard time growing quickly or healthily. So while I wait for my locks to grow, I chose to try out extensions!
When Irresistible Me reached out and offered for me to try their stunning, real remy hair extensions, I was jumping for joy inside! Their extensions are individually and manually made. The quality is unmatched and I was incredibly impressed with how well the color matched my own. My red is definitely not a “natural” shade, but it’s also not overly vibrant. I was thrilled that these blended so well. I used this video to help me choose the correct color, and was beyond satisfied with how well it lead me to the right shade – if I hadn’t watched it, I would have ended up with a much darker purple-red!
I didn’t want to look like I was wearing extensions, but rather that my locks were natural, so I chose the 14″, 200g set because they are not too much longer than my own hair. This set is composed of one piece with four clips, two pieces with three clips, five pieces with two clips and two pieces with one clip. They layer very naturally with my hair and are easily curled or straightened with my Beyond the Beauty curling wand and flat iron. Since I have such thin hair, I gathered help from several YouTube videos that show exactly how to layer extensions for girls just like me.
Irresistible Me has many different options for length and thickness with their extensions. They have pieces with extra volume, extensions made specifically for ponytails, and even full lace wigs. They were kind enough to provide a coupon code for any of my wonderful readers who may be interested in trying out extensions for themselves.
