Hair Extension Talk

Have you ever gone to the salon asking them for a trim, just a few inches off, but the stylist actually cuts more than what you asked for? Or, have you always wanted long hair, but your hair is too stubborn to grow faster than it should? Or, even had long hair withdrawals after chopping a huge chunk of your hair? 

Well,  unfortunately for me, I have experienced all three. 

But, I found a solution haha! Well, at least a faster solution for having longer locks in just no time.

I found this great site called, PRO Extensions and obviously by the looks of the name, you probably have guessed by now that this site is a hair extension site. (if not, then... well, it is :)

Anyways, this site has a huge selection of hair extensions; from 14 inch all the way to their longest, 24 inches. They also carry standard sets as well as the best kind of hair out there, the Remi.

I, personally got the 24" inch Clip On Hair Extensions-Remi in Jet Black and I must say, I am very impressed with the quality of this set of hair as well as the clips that it came with. Each set comes with 12 clip on hair extensions. But the 2 testers doesn't come with clips as they are only "testers" meaning, you use them to test on hair dyeing for example. So technically, you get 10 with clips.

The way it was constructed or made, was very nicely done as well. All the clips are sewn on the wefts very tightly. No loose ends, nothing. Although, I must say, purchasing hair extensions isn't a joke, it's quite an investment. Especially if you want real good quality human hair.

Anyways, PRO Extensions has this permanent promotion for their sets. If you order something more than $60, you get a FREE OVER NIGHT SHIPPING. Which is great, especially for those of us who are impatient (ie. me~ lol!)

Another thing that is risk free is ordering a sample first, prior to buying right away without knowing your actual color. There samples are only $3.99 and it comes in every color that their extensions comes in. 

Basic things you need to know

1.) What's the difference between the Standard sets & Remi sets?

2.) How would I know if it's real human hair or not?
-If it's real human hair then you are able to straighten, curl and do other things using hot tools without having the hair melt on you. Also, though most real hair comes with that natural sheen to it, you can definitely spot synthetics/ fake hair because fake hair is often extremely shiny to the point where it looks almost "plastic-like" Another thing is that, you can actually dye/ color real hair as opposed to fake synthetic hair.

3.) Where can I buy real human hair extensions for less than $20?
-No where! Honestly, if you want cheap real hair extensions, you won't find any. TRUST ME! 

*NOTE: Never buy CHEAP hair extensions on EBAY. I have been fooled once & I don't want you to go through the same thing. I always believed that when it comes to makeup, sometimes a low end brand is just as good as most higher end brands. But, when it comes to hair extensions, I kid you not.....don't settle for CHEAP, because what you pay for is definitely what you will get. =/ I know, it's unfortunate because hair extensions are quite pricey, but if you take good care of it, it will last you a very long time. :)

Now, for the transformation...
