I WANT long hair unfortunately it is harder to maintain longer hair then short hair.
Depending on the texture of your hair you will need to get your ends trimmed every 12 weeks, & if your hair dresser cuts off more than you requested it is most likely because your hair needs it. Once the ends of the hair shaft split it will eventually snap off creating fly away hair, those are the little fuzzy pieces off hair usually on the top layer of the hair or around the nape of your neck.
So what’s a girl to do? I love being as natural as I possibly can but I thought I would give hair extensions ago, until it grows longer which would take me until next Christmas.
I have shopped around & and I have tried the hair extensions made up of Keratin that are bonded by a hot tong but I found that they dropped out after less than 6 weeks and the ones that didn’t drop out over time a deadlocked effect was created around the bond that is difficult to brush out with a hair brush and you could see and feel them when you touched my scalp, so much for natural and the worst part is they took around 3 hours to complete!
With Go Girls Hair Extensions straight away the most notable difference is that they are applied to the hair within 30 minutes and the pieces of extension tape hair are flat not round, as they are attached by 3M tape that is a flat sticky strip and 5cm in length. Another difference is that with the Go Girl Hair Extension laying flat on your own hair and scalp, the extension does not knot around the root of your hair shaft and you cannot feel it.
Ask yourself how many extensions do I need?
- Do I want to add some colour highlights?
- Add volume to my existing fine long hair?
- Add length & volume my short hair?
- Do I want bright fashion colours without bleaching?
When selecting your shade of hair colour you can purchase one shade or there are packets available with two tones in them for variety to get the natural look of two tone colour with out damaging your hair shaft by chemical colouring.
You can choose 1-2 shades in a pack.
#1 Deep Black, #1B Chocolate Brown, #2 Light Chestnut Brown, #4 Light Brown, #27 Cooper Blonde, #18 Blonde, #6 Light Blonde, #8 Strawberry Blonde, #16 Platinum Blonde, #24 Whitest Ash Blonde, Blue, Purple, Red, Pink, #99J Maroon.
What does work with this product is that you can make an appointment with me every 6 weeks to have them lifted closer to the scalp, similar to a colour but without the damage of applying chemicals to your hair cuticle. If they do happen to fall out I can simply pop some new 3M tape onto the extension and put it back into place, quicker and cheaper than a hair colour brilliant!
Most extensions will last 2-3 months depending on how you treat them eg: swimming at the beach or pool, excessive styling as all of these things can shorten the lifespan of the bonds.
When sleeping it is recommend to tie your hair in a top knot or braid it, I flip my head upside down & leave some slack in the hair tie the bonus being that this creates great root lift the next morning, the same goes for swimming as tying your hair up stops any unnecessary tangles. When I brush my hair I am careful to hold the roots of the hair to take the pressure off the extensions. You can use the same shampoos and conditioners you would normally use on your hair but stay clear of Head and Shoulders shampoo or any oil based products near your roots as this weakens the bonds. You won’t find better hair than this for the money, it is the most luxurious Remy human hair that can be curled, straightened, tongued, washed & dyed.
I love my new long hair & it has blended in really nicely with my natural hair, I wish I had done this earlier, if you would like longer hair, thicker hair or would like a new hair colour without having to colour it every 6 weeks then give Go Girls Hair Extensions a try.
