Hair Extensions Review:D

I've always wanted really long hair. Like the kind where it's almost to my belly button. But for some reason, my hair just never grows to that point. Or at least it didn't.(My hair is pretty long right now. hahaha.)

So last February, my mom and I were doing some shopping at the Northridge Mall. And when we passed by this hair extensions booth, we were both really fascinated. They came in different lengths, different colors, and different hairstyles. The kind ladies who were running the "store" were happy to help us try some on.

I decided to try the 22 inch extensions in medium rich brown.(which is my hair color) The lady attached it to my original hair and she even curled it to match the extensions. I even felt kind of weird because everyone that passed by the booth were staring at me. But when she finished and handed me a mirror, I absolutely loved it. It looked so natural, no one would think it was extensions:D

This is how long it is. The only down part is that its synthetic. Meaning you can't curl it or straighten it. If you do so it will burn. So every time I wear it, I have to curl my natural hair so it'll match. I purchased it for $65. I actually thought it was a little expensive for synthetic extensions but they also offered me a free appointment to their salon. They said I can just come anytime for a haircut or for a treatment. Of course, I couldn't say no to that:D

This is what my mom got. I'm not entirely sure what length this is but it goes all the way down to her chest. The color of this one is more of a light brown with highlights. My mom has short hair so she just wanted to see how it would look on her. This one costs $55, I believe.

They also sold these little sections of fake hair. You can use it to make your hair look fuller. My mom used it on the side of her head to fill up the spaces between the extensions.(Boy, I really hope that made sense. haha:) Each of these costs $10.

After a couple of months, my mom decided to come back. She was really curious about the wig, so she wanted to see how it would look on her. This one cost $50. She really wanted one because she's always wanted to grow her hair, but she never does. The wig is also synthetic. There's not much you can do with it, except to wear it and add clips maybe. My mom actually wore it during Mother's Day. And I must admit, she looked pretty good in it.:D

It even has legit bangs. haha.

This is the back of the wig. It's dark brown with light brown highlights. I also love how it's kind of curled in the front.

They also provided us with these clear bags to store our extensions in when were not going to use them. I think it was a pretty good deal!

In terms of washing them, we also purchased this set of Shampoo and Conditioner. They gave it to us for $10 each. I think you can also use this for your real hair. I haven't really tried it, but thinking about it now, I should. haha. And it smells pretty good too.

This is a close up of the shampoo and conditioner:D I wanted you guys to be able to read it:)

Overall, I really like my extensions. Although, I'm planning to purchase another set. But the real human hair this time. I want to be able to curl it and straighten it and brush it and do all kinds of stuff that you can't do with synthetic ones. Would you guys happen to know good brands?

I really hope you guys enjoyed reading this review:D

How about you? Have you ever tried hair extensions?
