Irresistable Me sent me complimentary hair extensions in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.
Styling hair has never been a strong talent of mine. Having worked in entertainment as a teenager into my adult years, anytime I had an event I had a professional help transform my hair into something fabulous. Which seemed great at the time, but it didn't teach me anything about styling or taking care of my own locks as an adult. On my time off, I was all about simple and easy, just wearing it straight or in a top knot for comfort.
When I found out I was expecting a baby this summer, I was excited to be one of those women who is blessed with long, thick, luscious locks. However, here I am, entering month five, and my hair is still.... my hair. Which on most days I'm completely happy with, and on others it leaves something to be desired. And though I stopped coloring it 4 years ago, it still has a hard time growing.
I'd always been curious to try hair extensions, so when I was approached by Madison of Irresistible Me to try some out, I jumped at the chance excitedly. In the photos below you can see my current natural hair length, falling just below my shoulders.
I received the package during my First Trimester and I was so sick I barely left the house and didn't have something to wear them for. So I must apologize to Madison and thank her for being so patient in me trying out this fabulous product.
A few weeks ago, I went out to Palm Springs to co-star in a music video for NVE/Universal artist Vernac on a song I featured on (I still dabble, music will always be a part of me) and I saw the perfect opportunity to try them out.
I chose the medium length and just based on photos of me on my blog Madison matched my hair color PERFECTLY. Like, it is crazy how close to my natural hair color the extensions are. Below you can see the fullness and length they provided and see them on set of our video.
Adding fullness around my face and length that isn't too long, they appear natural and are lightweight. They are also so easy to put in and take out, and aren't damaging to your hair. I've worn them to a family party, my magazines launch party event and to lunch with girlfriends. It's fun to have the long, thick hair I wish I had on a daily basis. They are also SUPER easy to style. I've straightened and curled them many times and they hold up beautifully. I have yet to wash them, as I've only worn them a few times, but by visiting Irresistible Me's official website you can get all the care information, as well as peruse the many options they have when ordering a set for yourself.
Right now they are also offering 20% off for first time orders. Already an affordable choice for hair extensions, they are a number one pick for me and those I know who were seeking better, natural hair improvement options.
Have you tried hair extensions in the past? What was your experience?
