When I was younger, I never needed to think about extensions. I always had the longest hair and I loved it. When I was at uni, I treated myself and went to Tony and Guy to have my usual full head of highlights, and they absolutely butchered it. Talk about a treat..NOT! I left the salon and cried for ages - the ends of my hair were dehydrated and pretty much dead, and I decided to go to a different salon, where they said the best thing to do would be to cut off a couple of inches and let it grow again. I had my hair cut to about 2 inches under my shoulders which for me, was massively short. Luckily, my hair grows quite quickly so it is growing now. When Halo contacted me about receiving some hair extensions recently, for the first time ever, I was truly interested. I could get my fuller and thicker hair back that I used to have whilst it grows - perfect scenario really? I was matched with Honey Blonde #22 and sent a 16" Deluxe set of clip-in extensions.

When it arrived it was packaged beautifully, and I tried them on straight away. With the 16" Deluxe Clip-In set you get 12 wefts of hair - 3 pieces of 3 clips, 3 pieces of 2 clips and 6 pieces of 1 clips. The clips have a protective strip of rubber underneath so you're not damaging your hair at all, and the condition of the Remy hair is just wonderful - it's soft to the touch and all the hair is conditioned so perfectly. Applying the hair extensions was really easy too - considering I'd never applied hair extensions before, it was a piece of cake. You just section your hair and clip into the place - job done! (You get a little booklet with instructions to help you with this, if you're a novice like myself!) Now, my hair is pretty much the same length as the 16" extensions which was a shame, but I was also after volume. If volume is what you want, then volume is what you get with these extensions. My hair was just fuller and thicker, and felt luxurious to the touch. I've been absolutely loving wearing the extensions when my hair is in a ponytail. Hopefully in the before and after photos below you can see how much of a difference they make to the ponytail - it's much bouncier and fuller, and oh so fun to swish around! One thing I will add is at first I wasn't used to the extra weight on my head from the extensions. All the wefts of hair weigh 135g, and at first I was aware of the extra weight, but after about two times of wearing them, I didn't notice it at all, and I'm putting that down to the fact I'd never worn extensions before. Now, when I'm not wearing them, my hair feels thin and lifeless, so thumbs up to Halo!

With these hair extensions, you can style them as you would normal hair - curl, straighten, style, you name it, but obviously you have to care for them to prolong the life of the hair. You can buy shampoo and conditioner from Halo too, but I've been using my usual products for this which work well. The Halo Hair Extensions team are an absolute pleasure to place an order with - they were so easy, replied quickly to email and they matched my hair perfectly, which is obviously the key. Plus, the delivery was unbelievably quick too. You can buy the 16" Deluxe Clip-In Hair Extensions for £74.99, and it is 100% brilliant quality you're paying for. As an extension novice, I'd recommend Halo to anyone - just chat to them on Twitter and you'll see what a friendly and helpful company they are, not to mention extension geniuses! I think next time I will have to get the 20" extensions as my hair is almost the same length now..I'm excited for that day! Verdict? Total Halo convert.

  2. I'm so jealous of everyone that can wear extensions, I've got really thick hair and when they're in they look so obvious.

  6. As long as you are using the correct products and taking care of your hair extensions properly, you should be able to wear extensions for years and years. You may have to get longer ones as your hair grows longer.

  8. Firstly decide what you want your extensions for, is it for a special occasion or for more permanent wear. If it is for a special occasion you want to go for Clip in Hair.
    Thanks.

  10. Abhair.com has gradually built its forte in hair extension manufacturing and retailing since its inception. However, the new and exciting range of clip in extensions that the company is offering now is expected to spur the growth and popularity of the online hair extension seller. Clip-in extensions of a wide range of length, shades, and thickness are now available in the e-retail store. “The meticulously designed hair extensions can be fitted closely to the scalp”, a sales representative depicted the unique characteristic of these extensions very recently. “Customers can buy as many as clip-in extensions they wish just to increase the volume and thickness of their hair. Hair Weave are particularly popular among our customers as it can be cut, coloured, curled and straightened as they wish.
