Irresistible Me Hair Extensions: Silky Touch Line Review

Hello loves!

I was recently approached by Irresitible Me to review their Silky Touch Hair Extension Line. Those of you who follow my blog know that I have never worn hair extensions before so this was particularly new for me. However, I said yes anyway because I was curious to try them out.

The color that I got for my extensions is silky medium brown #4, I got the 24 inches and 200g. For those of you that don't know, 200g just refers to how many wefts of hair are included. With the 24 inches only 200g is available which is the max amount. My hair when it is straight is 26 inches long from the top of my head to the ends so I needed the longest extensions they have.
After ordering my extensions shipment took around 3 to 4 days. The packaging was great and my extensions arrived in fantastic shape.

My hair is obviously very long, however, it is also very thin which is why I wanted to try the extensions in the first place.

Installing the extensions was probably the trickiest part for me because I wasn't sure exactly how to do it. The first time I put in all of the wefts and realized that I didn't have enough hair to cover them so you could clearly tell that I was wearing extensions. My remedy to this was to throw a beanie on (which actually worked pretty well).

Here I am with all of the wefts in.

While I was really happy with the results I noticed that at the end of the day I had a gigantic headache from the extensions tugging on my hair (remember my hair is extremely thin). Even though I loved the look and the volume the extensions added to my hair, wearing all of that weight on my head everyday is a no no.

The next time I wore them I only put in a few of the wefts (maybe five or six).

In order to keep the extensions from showing I put them in at the back of my head and more towards the bottom then I combed my hair back and over the wefts. This worked very well. Also, since I wasn't wearing all of the wefts I didn't get a headache but I still added some much needed volume to my hair.

The take-away: I can wear all of the wefts but I have to wear a hat when I do because I don't have enough hair to fully cover them. Also, since my hair is so thin I shouldn't wear all of the wefts everyday because I'll get a bad headache and I run the risk of tearing my hair out. If I only wear a few of the wefts I can still add volume to my hair without causing a headache and running the risk of losing hair.

Now that I've given you my experience it's time for the review.

Extensions are well made.
Real hair, can be manipulated using heat.
Durable should last for a while if taken care of properly.
Packaging was great!
Fast shipping time!
Comes with information on extensions including maintenance and care.
Blends well.

Silky Touch line doesn't have many color options.
Only has 200g option for 24 inches of length.
Can be a bit out of price range.

Overall, I definitely would recommend these extensions if you're looking to try some out. You can purchase them off of the Irresistible Me Site.

Be safe and I'll see you in my next post!

#NoHeatChallenge Heatless Hairstyles Wash N Go ft My Sister

Hello everyone!

So you all know that I am a natural girl and that I am going through a year long no heat challenge for my hair.

But what you do not know is that my sisters are also natural girls, in fact, I learned a lot of what I know from them.

My oldest sister decided that she wanted to try a wash n go. Since her curl pattern is all mixed up she doesn't like doing wash n gos because she doesn't feel her curls are defined and they get frizzy.

So she went to the store and picked up a few products for us to try on her hair and if it worked out well she would continued to use them for her routine.

So these are the products that she got and we used on her hair:
I started off by washing her hair with the shampoo, only the roots of course. Then I applied the Suave conditioner to the ends of her hair to attract any leftover dirt and oil and rinsed it off.

Next, to deep condition, I applied the Neutrogena conditioner and we left it on for about 10 minutes before rinsing it out with cold water. This is just to give her hair some extra moisture since it was dry and straight when we started.

To apply the product to her hair we used the LOS method. LOS stand for Liqud or Leave-in, Oil, Sealant. 

With her hair soaking wet (liquid) I applied the Cantu leave in conditioner (leave-in) to her hair in small sections and made sure every strand was coated.

Next I used the Proclaim oil (oil) and applied that on top of the leave in conditioner also in small sections. After all the sections were coated with oil we re-wet her hair so that it was soaked and then I applied the styling gel (sealant) in small sections. 

After applying the gel this is how her hair looked before it was dry. 

And this is how her hair looked fully dry and styled the next day

She had pictures with her family the next day and I think her hair held up really well!

She also did the same routine on her daughter, my niece Saje and this is her result.

Needles to say she really loved her hair which I am happy about!

Well guys that is it for this post!

What do you guys think, should my sister rock her wash n go on a regular basis? Let me know in the comments!

Be safe and I'll see you in my next post!

Three Easy Steps to an Ombre Lip

Hello Everyone!

Today I am going to show you all how I do an easy ombre lip.

You can really use any color that you want as long as one is darker than the other. The colors that I decided to use are the Milani Lip Liner in the color Sugar Plum and the NYX Matte Lipstick in the color Hippie Chic.

I used to think that doing ombre lips was really hard so I stayed away from it but I watched a few tutorials and tried it out before realizing how easy it is.

The three steps to an easy ombre lip are line, fill and blend. he blending part is very important. Just like when you're creating an eyeshadow look you don't want any harsh lines when it comes to your ombre lip.

I don't use any tools for my blending I just carefully rub my lips together to create the gradient effect.

After rubbing my lips together I just go over my liner once more, not to much, just to clean up the blending.

And that is it!

I've only done this technique a few times and I have gotten it down to about 5 minutes so this doesn't take too much time at all.

I really encourage you guys to try this out and try it with your own favorite colors (:

Here's what the completed lip looks like:

That's it for this post guys!
