My hair is about shoulder length now, and I've been growing it for over a year (it was really short before!). Sometimes I wish I had long hair again, but I still remember how much hassle it can be and how it gets in the way (the reasons why I went short in the first place!). Hair extensions seem to be the perfect solution, as I can have long hair when I want it, but take it out when I don't.
The most important thing for me about hair extensions is that they look natural. That means that the colour needs to match, the hair needs to be real and it cannot be obvious where my hair ends and the extensions start. So, with that in mind, I gave Hair Trade full head extensions a go. Hairtrade have several different kinds of extension; different styles, colours and lengths.
I got the Straight 18 Inch Extensions in Darkest Brown. The extensions are real hair so look very natural, and the colour match was great on my hair! There's a lot of choice and variation in the colours as well so there should be a good match for everyone.
There's a tutorial video on the website so, using that as a guide, they were very easy to put in. You can watch the tutorial of how to put them in under the 'how to' tab on the product page here. You simply section your hair and start with the 6 inch pieces at the bottom of your head, then work your way up. On the back of my head I had two 6 inch pieces, followed by two 8 inch pieces. This made my hair nice and thick and more natural looking.
As you can see from the photos, they are clip in extensions. This means that they are not bad for your hair and are easy to put in and take out. The clips feel very secure, even when curling my hair and tugging them. I thought they looked more natural curled than straight so I curled them with my Ghds, just like my normal hair. As it's real hair, you can style them, straighten and curl them however you want. There's also instructions for washing them.
Overall I really like these extensions and I will definitely be wearing them for special occasions and night's out!
