Oh my gosh! I tried for the first time hair flip in extensions. Yes, me! I never thought I would do it because it never crossed my mind. Or rather I should say that the only crazy thing I did to my hair is cutting it short. No, not an extreme pixie cut but from the middle of my back to the end of my neck, like an A-line bob. This was two years ago and since then I’m letting my hair grow back. I only cut the dead-ends and that’s it. So when I got the opportunity to try hair extensions I said yes!
In my hair I’m wearing the layered deep dark brown synthetic hair. It is 60 cm long and weighs 160 grams it also has a wavy structure. You have to attach the hairpiece with a wire. It sounds crazy but it is possible! The hair extension has a wire on top of the left until right ends of the hair extension. You flip it on top of your head like a hairband and with a tail comb you flip your hair over the wire. Simple, easy and quick! The wire is thin and transparent, perfect because you can’t see it in your hair. Very glamorous, whoop!
I chose on purpose a wavy structure the reason behind it is that I never style my hair in all the way straight. I prefer a natural stroke and with these hair extensions my hair naturally blends with the synthetic hair. What I also love is that they are easy maintainable. You can comb, style, curl and wash it. As long you comb it from the bottom to the top, use a heat protector first when you want to style or curl it. Never use a hair tool that is higher than 160 degrees! Let the hair tool no longer than 8 seconds in your hair and last but not least wash it in lukewarm tap water and fabric softener. Yes, the one that you wash your cloths with. Let it soak for five minutes then rinse it off with lukewarm tap water and squeeze out excess water from the hair. When you are done with the ‘’hair bath’’ add a number of drops from a serum or hair oil and pat it dry with a towel before you let it lay or hang to dry naturally.
From the moment I got in my hair I felt like a mermaid. My hair had suddenly length and volume! When I opened the package I was a bit sceptical about the hair colour. Even though my hair is dark brown I didn’t know how it would look on synthetic hair. So when I flipped it in my hair my sceptical thought flew away when I saw a smile on my face! I take good care of my hair and surprise myself with a new hairdo once in a while is just amazing!
