I wish I could tell you that I found a magic pill that makes your hair grow this long over night – unfortunately – I can’t, but as you can tell from the title, today’s post is going to be all about my new favourite clip-in extensions from Irresistible Me. I was very kindly sent some Remy hair extensions to try out. As you guys know, I just got my hair cut really short a few weeks ago and although I do like my short hair I definitely prefer long hair on me. Hair extensions are such a nice way to change up your look and are fun to play with since they add a ton of volume and, of course, length to the hair. So, if you’ve been thinking about entering Rapunzel territory this post is for you!
Irresistible Me are based in New York and offer free worldwide shipping with free exchanges and returns. They’re selling a large range of natural hair extensions available in 12 different shades, wigs and also hair tools. Royal Remy is their premium line made with 100% human Remy hair. Additionally, they add a special treatment to make the extensions extra silky – and I can 100% agree. These extensions are really thick, silky smooth and provide a lot of body and bounce while wearing them which is absolutely amazing for my thick hair.
I decided to go for the Royal Remy Hair Extensions in Ash Blonde, 20 inches and 200g and I’m so glad that they match my natural hair colour perfectly! The length is also perfect for me and I was surprised how light they feel on my scalp. The set includes 10 individual wefts with different amounts of clips to distribute throughout the hair. They came in a really cute little box that I will definitely keep to store my extensions once I’m done wearing them. It took me a while to figure out how to blend the extensions with my short hair but practice makes perfect. There are also some really great great videos on Youtube that teach you how to wear them properly so I definitely recommend checking those out as well if you’re struggling.
How to take care of your extensions
To ensure that your extensions will last you a really long time, it’s essential to get the maintenance rituals down, because when you don’t take care of your extensions, they won’t last as long as they’re supposed to. Remy hair is indeed the best kind of hair used for hair extensions and they do last longer than other types, but since it is made of 100% human hair, Remy clip-in hair extensions should be given the same care that you would give your own.
Shampooing: They should only be washed every 10-20 wears or when there’s too much product built up and they become unmanageable to style, shShampooing them more than is necessary will dry them out because they don’t receive natural oils from the scalp. It’s recommended to use shampoos and conditioners aimed for dry hair.
Brushing: Gently remove tangles with a wide tooth comb or a detangling brush and work your hair from the ends carefully moving upwards towards the weft. This method prevents breakage. Never brush or comb your hair extensions while they’re still wet! Always use your fingers to detangle them until they’re dry.
Styling: Remy human hair can be curled and straightened just like your natural hair, but keep in mind that heat can damage your clip-in’s cuticles, so always apply some sort of heat spray before styling the hair. Opt for styling products that are alcohol free, I like using oils or conditioning sprays.
