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.
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.
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!

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions: Silky Touch Line Review
I am a student at Mt. San Antonio College studying Journalism. My goal is to become a Spanish broadcast journalist in Spain. I love to write and I also love makeup and beauty so that is what inspired me to start this blog. I also started a YouTube channel because I love being in front of the camera and I feel that it gives me a better chance to connect with my viewers and my readers.
