Over the Summer I cut my hair pretty short. (Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t get a buzz cut or anything but I took off a significant amount of length.)
My husband and I were in the early stages of separating, I was super stressed and I needed a change. At the time it felt very freeing and it also had the added benefit of making my beauty routine easier, so that was nice. As time passed though, I started to miss my long locks.
Even now, I have gained a few inches but I still feel like it is growing at a snail’s pace. I’ve even been taking vitamins with Biotin but nothing seems to be helping.
When Irresistible Me reached out to collaborate on a review I was really excited about the prospect of having long hair instantly! I was nervous though. I am not a professional hair person by any means and I have never used extensions before. I was intimidated by the thought of putting them in but after checking out their website I felt a lot better. There have a ton of information on their website and Pinterest that put my mind at ease. There are pictures and videos showing the different colors, lengths and wefts of hair and tutorials on how to attach the pieces. This one really made me feel confident that I would be able to put them in properly.
I went on their website to choose the length, weight and color of my extensions. This part was actually very difficult for me. Even though they have charts and videos to help you choose the shade closest to your color, my hair is dark blonde with platinum blonde highlights. I was not sure what color to match the extensions to since I have two very different shades happening. I ultimately decided to go with light brown color so that it would match the darker tones on the underside of my hair. I am so glad I did that! It wound up looking great!
There are tons of different colors you can choose from and when you get your order there are two different sealed packages of hair inside. One contains your extensions and the other contains smaller sample pieces that you can put on to confirm that you ordered the right color. If you need to return or exchange just send back the sealed package of extensions and you are good to go. I thought that was a really smart idea. This way you can try on the hair in the comfort of your own home without being stuck with it if you ordered the wrong shade.
I chose 20″ length and I decided on 200g in weight. I was really aiming for length and volume and looking for a dramatic difference from my real hair. The 200g comes with ten pieces. Included in the box were:
This chart really helped me narrow down the length. I am glad I looked at it before ordering though. Since I was wanting long hair I probably would have gone with the longest possible option had I not seen it and it would have felt like too much for me. I am 5’11 and the 20″ length was almost down to my waist!
My first impression of my Irresistible Me extensions was that it was A LOT of hair. I was really excited about it. I also could not believe how quickly it arrived! They ship their products from China so I thought I would have to wait a while but it came super quick. I got it within a week.
I finally got the chance to experiment with my new hair last weekend and my first impression of them is that the extensions are FUN! Even my friend’s son got in on the action! He sported a boy bob and a mullet!
My hair grows pretty slowly and I have to cut it regularly due to bleaching it blonde. I have never been able to have such a fabulous, voluminous mane before and I LOVED IT! I really felt like a mermaid!
The difference between my normal everyday hair and my hair with the Irresistible Me extensions was striking and I was really impressed with how real the hair felt. It did not feel awkward, itchy or like I was wearing a wig. (I worried about all those things.) I wore them two full days in a row and I was very comfortable.
I am really looking forward to styling it different ways in the future. I cant wait to see how it all looks curled for a night out or even in a cute braid! Overall Irresistible Me made me a believer! I had not considered extensions before and now I am hooked!
