Let talk hair…
It’s something I love and I don’t talk about it on here enough.
So first off there are many types of extensions. Theres tape-in, fusion, micro-link, sew-in, halo, and clip-ins.
I can’t tell you which one is best, because it depends on each individual person. It depends on your lifestyle, your needs, your willingness for maintenance.
Me? I’m a die hard fan for the clip-in extensions. I like the low maintenance, and practicality of the clip-ins. I think I curl my extensions once, maybe twice goodbye.
So if anyone wants to know my opinion on certain clip-in brands stay tuned.
Side note: I haven’t tried all these brands so I asked for my friends opinions when they tried them. I trust their opinion.
BELLAMI Hair Extensions: Rating: 4/10
For any of you that are familiar with extensions, you probably have heard of BELLAMI Hair Extensions. Every girl on Youtube rants and raves about them. From behind the camera lens they also looked beautiful to me too. Then two of my friends ordered them and it was a mess.
Now, my friends are professionals in the cosmetology industry just like me. They know how to properly take care of extensions, they take care of them. They did everything they were supposed to, and it was still a mess.
One friend had hers on in normal weather conditions and they tangled so badly she had to throw them away in two months. (Now, yes, she was at a picnic outside, and maybe the wind blew a few times) However, I don’t think being outside should make any difference. After all, it was 100% human hair, and does that happen to your actual hair? No, it doesn’t. Even in slightly windy conditions, you can still brush your hair afterwards. I saw them for myself and it was bad.
My other friend, had hers come and they felt like they were straw. I felt them myself, it was like hay. Again, 100% human hair… brand new $200+ extensions shouldn’t do that.
So, personally I wouldn’t buy them. They are not all they’re cracked up to be. However if you still are intrigued and want to buy them if you use the code “Jaclyn” you can get $5 off. This is Jaclyn Hill’s discount code. She is the best when it comes to makeup. She knows what she’s doing. I trust she gave an honest review about hair extensions, I’m sure she did get good quality ones. Maybe its just the luck of the draw for quality when it comes to BELLAMI.
SKR Hair: Rating: 10/10
So you want the good news or the bad news first?
Bad news it is.
Their website got hacked in January and no shipments have been received or gone out since then. Hence why I didn’t attach the hyperlink. My friend ordered some a few months back, and they’ve yet to show up.
Good news? These extensions lasted me 6 years, and they are the most amazing brand, I would’ve totally purchased them again in a heartbeat. They were great. I don’t know if they’re officially out of business, or if they’re still trying to be… unhacked? Dehacked? I don’t know the correct term.
I would buy again, I just don’t know if I’ll be able to.
Sally Beauty Hair Extensions: Rating: 6/10
You want a middle of the road, not too expensive, brand? Then march on over to Sally Beauty’s and get yourself a pack of the extensions. They’re a medium/low quality hair extension that will last you a good six months. I’ve heard mixed reviews from everybody. Three years ago, they were awful. I’ve heard they’ve stepped their game up. If you check out their website you’ll read mixed reviews. Thats exactly how I feel as well… mixed.
Luxy Hair Extensions: Rating: TBD
I just recently ordered these extensions. I will receive them in the mail tomorrow. All I can say so far is that their customer service is great. I will let you guys know how I feel about the extensions in a few weeks.
That’s all I got guys. I really hope I’ll be able to give you a good and worth your money brand to try soon. I hope Luxy is amazing. Because currently the hair extensions world is not doing well.
