So you’re thinking of getting extensions and hopefully doing extensive research before going forward with it. I decided to write this post as a follow up for my previous post about keratin bonded extensions about everything you should know about them in more details because I recently removed my extensions.
- Itchy Feeling
This irritated me the most because I had to wash my hair more frequently than I’m used to and it’s not exactly convenient for a mom since I normally shower fast. By time, my scalp was getting irritated from the weather as well, I can’t exactly scratch comfortably because you can feel the notes where the extensions are.
- Changing Hair Care Routine
I hate change, when I’m comfortable with a routine PLEASE don’t make me change it. Having extensions makes you change everything when it comes to hair care, the products you use, the time you spend washing your hair, how do you style it. Even when your hair gets a little bit sweat from the summer heat or even at the gym, you have to wash your hair and blowdry it right after which was such a hustle for me because I normally air-dryed my hair.
- Brush, brush, brush
After getting a special brush for my extensions, I kept getting annoyed that I have to brush my hair while avoiding the notes where the hair and extensions connect. I wanted to brush my hair fully from roots to tips without dealing with the apparent road bumps.
- They’ll show … Eventually
By time, your hair grows out and the extensions will show so you’ll have to change the way you style your hair to blend them which goes back to my second point “I HATE CHANGE”, there’s a certain way I like my hair to be and I’m comfortable not changing it.
I kept my lovely extensions in a bag in the closet, maybe someday I’ll attach them again when the weather is less humid and not too hot, probably grow out my hair more so it’ll blend better since my hair is shoulder-length at the moment. Until then, the only extensions I’ll be keeping are my lashes, those I can’t live without.
