Can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful these extensions from Irresistible Me are. Although this is my first time giving extensions a go, I am oh so impressed. I know my hair is fairly long to begin with, but these extensions not only add length, they also add volume! Wearing them makes me feel like I have Disney princess hair, and who doesn’t want Disney princess hair?
They are also pretty comfortable to wear. Of course you can feel them in, that is pretty much expected, but I have never experienced any pain or discomfort with them. Think about it like this, hair extensions are essentially just a big pair of fake lashes for your head; no discomfort, but you definitely know thy are there.
These hair extensions are also such great quality. They are made from 100% human hair; that means you can treat them just the same as you would treat your natural hair. Not only that, it also means they will blend seamlessly with your natural hair. And when they say silky touch, they aren’t joking. The first day I got these extensions I spent at least 10 minutes just touching them.
Each set comes with four different weft sizes. From left to right: 1 large four clip weft , 2 three clip wefts, 4 two clip wefts, and 2 one clip wefts. This makes them great for everyday use and for specialized looks. I’m super excited to incorporate them into my future braid tutorials; just imagine all the braiding possibilities!
For those curious, I have the Silky Touch extensions in silky light brown and 22″ (inches) long. They have shades from the darkest black to the lightest blonde and everything in between. This means they are super inclusive to all hair colors, and who doesn’t love that. If you’re having trouble judging the colors from the pictures on their sight, check out this video here. It shares an in depth description and video clip of each shade.
Before receiving these extensions I had no experience with extensions, nor did I know how to put them in. If you’re in the same clueless boat I was in, I have some good news for you.. it is a lot simpler than you might imagine!
Step 1: Start by separating a off a section around the tops of your ears.
Step 2: Clip in your largest (4 clip) weft roughly one inch below the section you just made.
Step 3: Clip in two of second largest (3 clip) wefts side by side directly above the first initial weft. This is why we left about an inch of room! These two wefts should slightly wrap around the sides of your head.
Step 4: Then let your hair done and create a new section roughly 1 inch about the last weft your clipped in.
Step 5: For this step you will be using 2-4 of the 2 clip wefts depending on how much hair you have/want. 2 wefts for less hair and 4 for more. You are essential repeating the last step by placing 2 wefts side my side. If you choose to add more than 2 wefts simply let down your hair, create a new section, and add the remaining wefts in.
Step 6: I like to add the small 1 clip wefts to the front to balance out the length. Simply lift up a section roughly 1 inch from your part, clip the weft in, and put the hair back to your original part.
