I’ve always wanted to have thick voluminous hair, but unfortunately my whole life I’ve had thin flat hair.
I recently bought synthetic extensions from Lulabellz, they were a decent price and were long but I found it difficult to colour match my hair to the extensions.
In the past I’ve tried weaves, but I found that they didn’t last very long and damaged my hair badly.
As the hair is sewn into your hair, it can get quite itchy and as your hair grows the weave grows out so you cannot brush the hair properly, so your hair gets very knotty.
The major ‘issue’ with getting bond is of course the price.
If you go to a local salon you’re more likely to get a reasonable price for the hair.
My hairdresser trained with Balmain hair, who can charge around £600 for bonded hair extensions.
That maybe fine for reality stars like Charlotte Crosby or Megan McKenna, however for the rest of us… it’s a bit much for hair!
I found a good deal for bonded extensions at Diva Hair and Beauty Salon in Tile Hill, Coventry.
I paid £230 for 100g of Brazillian hair.
The main problem we all face with colour matching, (especially for blondes) is getting the exact colour match, because hair is so complex and there are various shades to match.
My hairdresser Kianna, matched up my hair with the colour wheel and found two colours that matched perfectly.
I managed to get an appointment quite quickly considering how long you can usually wait.
I was able to get an appointment within a couple of weeks.
The application process of the extensions took roughly just over a couple of hours.
I was absolutely in love with the end result!
The hair blended in so well to my natural hair, and looked so silky smooth at the end.
My extensions were 23 inches in length, so quite long!
They are so easy to style, and are great for adding volume.
I had so many compliments on my hair, and I feel really confident.
Although, the aftercare can be quite tiresome.
You cannot leave the hair wet especially if you are going to sleep.
It’s important that you dry the hair after washing it.
When you are going to sleep you have to plait the hair to prevent it from knotting in the night and ruining the hair.
As my natural hair gets quite knotty, I have bought a tangle teaser to brush through my hair and keep it in good condition.
After 3 months the bonds need to be removed, some are likely to have fallen out, that’s normal.
You can send the hair off to be rebonded, and re-applied.
At Diva Salon they charge £80 to reapply them.
Of course, if you don’t take care of the hair, don’t keep it in good condition, then you won’t be able to reapply them.
However, if you prefer to have next bonds, then pay £230 for the new set.
It may be a bit pricey over the year, but the price of beauty is not cheap.
And it still works out cheaper than the one set of hair from Balmain.
So, go for it girl!
