Hair Extentions: Sally’s Beauty Supply
So… Do you know what it is? Those that know me well know, those that ask know, professionals probably know, but do you? Is my hair REALLY that long and thick? Heck no! I wish. If this is a shock to you that I wear hair extensions…sorry! Almost every girl does something to enhance at least one feature on their body. Makeup to enhance facial features, eyelash extensions, Botox to hide fine lines and wrinkles, boob jobs… I get hair extensions! I mean, I love trying different hairstyles on my hair as well as on others so, naturally, if my hair isn’t as long as I want it for certain styles or looks I am going for I’m going to use extensions! I got some last October and have been hooked ever since. My hair is not short by any means, but they help my braids become longer and fuller, and I sometimes just like the look of super long hairstyles!
My hair has never been as long as I wanted it to be because I always get bored with it after a while and cut it off to match the latest short style that’s “in” at the moment. This has actually been the longest that I have been without chopping off my locks in a while, but it’s still not as long as I want it to be. I always thought that I needed to get a good trim every 10 weeks to keep my hair healthy, so that is what I have always done. Trimming that often may be a good idea for those who wash their hair every day, blow dry, curl, straighten… whatever! However, those that don’t damage their hair to that extent do not necessarily need to trim that often! I haven’t gotten a trim since October and my hair is still good to go. My tips are: eat healthy, drink water, take your vitamins, don’t wash your hair every day, and DEEP CONDITION LADIES.
Tips for applying and using your hair extensions:
1. They usually blend better with wavy or curled hair. You can also straighten, just make sure you put them in PERFECTLY and that the color matches your own color exactly.
2. Use the two smaller wefts on the bottom of your head and the two bigger wefts near the top.
3. Don’t wash them often. When you do wash them, let them air dry.
4. You can use curling irons and straighteners on them, but don’t use the highest heat.
5. Don’t brush them out with anything other than a hair extension brush. You can find one here.
I use the 18 in. Remy Straight Clip-In extensions in Cool Blonde at Sally’s Beauty Supply. They blend so well with my highlights!
