Okay so... I bought more hair extentions. I know, I know. I literally have a whole Zara bag full in my bedroom. (One of the giant Zara paper bags, that you get when you buy a hefty coat and some shoes.) But I saw this brand called Lullabellz kicking about on my social media and they had 20% off and none of my extensions matched my hair colour so I thought I'd give it a go.
I had really wanted the large curl 3/4 piece, because I much prefer 3/4 hair pieces than extentions because for me they just feel more secure and comfortable. I always find extensions just pull on my scalp and if I'm getting low on the dancefloor (okay, dancing in my room with a bottle of wine) I like to know they're going to stay in place and not start peeking through. BUT they didn't have my colour and I wanted it in time for a dinner this weekend (which I ended up rescheduling anyway because I was ill and snotty) so here we are. Lullabellz, if you're reading this, send me the 3/4 piece when it comes into stock for my dinner please! ;)
It came already layered which was nice though, and it feels good quality. I got the single weft because I can't be arsed trying to clip in 8 different pieces, so a single weft is great for me to quickly put in after a gym session to feel a bit more glam. It literally takes two minutes.
It also withstands heat to a certain degree, so I put my straighteners on the lowest setting (160 degrees) and straightened a couple of bits and loosened the curls up a bit because I never have my hair too curly so it would blend better. I really liked the result. I always choose synthetic rather than real hair because 1. I don't really agree with how real hair extensions are made and 2. I dye my hair so frequently that they don't usually last very long, so it makes more sense for me to fork out £15 every few months than £120 when they're just going to fall apart when I dye them a few times.
How do you find hair extensions? What's your go-to?
