When I moved to San Francisco I found a fabulous new guy to do my hair. I have a friend here who has extensions. I have never even considered them, but when I got here my friends kept trying to talk me into it. My hair simply does not grow much past my shoulders. Still, with my fine hair there was no way that it would survive the tough process of hair extensions.
Enter the new type of extensions ( I wish I could tell you the name, but I will have to get that at my next appointment). They are placed in your hair with a clear adhesive strip that binds and can be easily removed. THEY ARE FABULOUS. I will admit that it took a week or two to get used to them, but they are so great, and I have hair!
I am not a hair person, I only recently learned to blow dry my hair with a round-brush, and am still not fabulous at it, let alone mastered the use of a flat iron or curling iron. These extensions are not that high maintenance. If I let them air dry- they have a nice natural wave, and then if I sleep with my hair in a braid at night, it has a great wave.
Finally, they can be colored! My guy put them in Friday, and I went back Saturday and had them color matched to my hair....they are also SIGNIFICANTLY less expensive than traditional extensions....
They really are great and if you want more information, let me know! If this low maintenance girl can be a convert, you have to try it!
