I bought these hair extensions in the color 2, 6 & 18 in a 14, 16 and 18 inch length to blend in my 12 inch natural hair. I installed them by myself, I eventually dyed them while installed into my hair to a rich violet dark purple color because I found the color was much more ashier than expected blended in my hair.
They turned out great due to the balayage color on them, making the lighter tones a bright violet that meshed with the lighter tones on my actual hair. I ended up trimming about an inch off the 18 inch human hair extensions and blended all of my hair together by trimming a bit. I have had them on my hair since mid April 2018 and it is now mid June 2018.
I haven’t had a single one fall out and the texture of the hair is still holding up well. I think I will be able to use them one more time. Honestly, I think they are better than ZALA tape in extensions, way less frizz than theirs and most than half the price. For reference, I have extremely thick collar bone length hair and got 150 grams, could fit more on my head but 150 is just fine.
This is beautiful human hair! I was a bit concerned about some reviews that complained about problems with washing it or applying heat, but I haven’t had any such problems. To start with, your best result for washing them is to individually shampoo and condition each piece not while wearing. Get a couple of cheap drying clothespin hangers at a dollar store or Asian grocery, and hang your wet hair. Run a comb or brush through the hair, straight down, once or twice, and let it dry. Maybe give it an extra combing when it’s almost dry.
As far as the quality, it is soft and silky even after washing, and the texture is similar to my $200 Cashmere Hair Remy extensions. This set comes with eight wefts, two of each size. Are they as thick as the $200 extensions? No. Then again, I don’t usually use all seven wefts from my other set. If you really want more volume, you could purchase two sets and it would still be less than half the cost of the $200 set … if you don’t mind having more metal clips in human hair.
The color was pretty much what I was looking for. I got the medium brown/blonde set. The blonde was a tad more bleachy than I would have liked, but no big deal. The brown is a nice, natural hue. I have black asian hair, and I am using these for highlights. They work great for my purposes — but I didn’t really have to deal with color matching.
My one complaint might be that there are some short strands sticking out at the seams where the wefts are joined with the clip, especially on the smallest wefts. But that was a really easy fix.
All in all, the set definitely holds up to the $200 set. I appreciate that the area they cut corners on because, come on, for this price point, something’s gotta give was on the quantity of hair extensions uk, not on the quality of the hair or workmanship.
