Hair Extensions*: c/o HairTrade
I continuously drone on about my
However, I was recently given the opportunity to review some human hair extensions from HairTrade so I thought I would give it a go once again! HairTrade stock I&K human hair extensions and I chose 18 inches in the colour Auburn (30). When it arrived I was a little taken aback by the colour. My hair is an awkward colour as it is, as it's just the grown out, faded produce of bleaching and dying it all these years. I wasn't expecting it to match completely, but it was definitely a lot more red than it appears in the photos and I'm a lot more on the blonder side auburn. I didn't see this as too much of a problem though as I had a bottle of lightener in my house and as they were human hair extensions it states on the website that they can be coloured. Unfortunately though the lightener done absolutely nothing. I'm not sure why either, but it just didn't lift the colour at all. Also, the colouring made them really brittle and they began to break off in clumps as I washed them, which was also a little disappointing.
Unfortunately for me, these hair extensions didn't work out too well, but I'll blame that on my awkward hair colouring. When they first arrived they were silky, soft and great quality, but I strongly recommend you don't dye them because it weakens the hair too much. Also, HairTrade offer a sample that you can order to home, which certainly would have helped me in colour matching my hair a little better.
