So, I ordered hair extensions to play with. I chose to order from Glam Time because they offered high quality human hair at a reasonable cost, plus they had free international shipping. My package arrived about 10 days after I placed my order. I had intentionally ordered them a color that appeared lighter than my current hair color because I was afraid I would not be able to match my hair exactly and I planned to dye them to my color. I ordered the Chestnut Brown #6 color but was a little surprised by just how light they actually were. But no biggie, hopefully the dye would match up.
I started out by dying the extensions with my usual color of choice.
I placed the extensions onto a sheet of aluminum foil to protect my counter tops and used my normal process of coloring my own hair. After each piece was thoroughly saturated with color, I folded them up and let them sit the allotted processing time.
I then rinsed them and gently squeezed the water out, placing them on a towel to air dry for a few hours.
After I let them dry for a while, I then pin curled them and set them aside to dry overnight.
It actually took them about 48 hours to dry on their own. WOW! I was not expecting that! Before I show you what they look like on, here is a shot of my normal, unstyled hair. It has just been blown dry. (Please forgive the tired face.)
And here I am with the hair extensions clipped in. I purchased the 120 gram set and I am very pleased with the amount of hair that I got. In fact, in the pictures that follow, I am not even wearing all of the hair pieces.
In this last photo, I only have the two 6" wide extensions in and I think it looks very natural.
I think I will keep them pin curled and stored wrapped in a scarf so that I won't have to wash them very often, but I can't wait to actually get to style them and wear them out! What do you guys think?
