Fact: I cut, trim, snip my own hair but I do leave the coloring and retouching to my hairstylist. Truth: I nipped 6 inches off of this mega mane last month because the extreme summer heat is too much for me to handle. Did I regret what I consider to be the biggest chunk I made in eight years? sorta but thanks to Irresistible Me hair extensions, I had the opportunity to bring back my crowning glory!

Ladies and zillas, say hi to my 100% Remy human hair extensions from Irresistible Me. In haircare lingo, Remy Hair is said to possess the finest quality, something like creme de la creme caliber because cuticles are kept intact for a more natural look with admirable silkiness and manageability. But before we go to the specifics, let me walk you through the process in case you’re curious to try these lovely hair extensions.

1) Shade selection. I “bronded” my hair (hybrid between blonde and brunette) last month so I was torn between #6 (royal light brown) and #10 (royal ash blonde). I went with gut-feel and settled for the latter. Here’s a short video from Irresistible Me to help you choose the right color.

2) Length selection. Short, mid, long? can’t decide how low you can go? this Pinterest guide is a lifesaver! I went with 22 inches, waist-length.

3) Grams selection. Fine or voluminous, basically that’s what grams option is for. If you have fine hair, start with 100, if you have thicker hair like me, go with 200.

This is how your “hair” will arrive, neatly-packed and protected.

Sealed two ways, one for trial, the other “open only when you’re decided to keep it”. This is good because it preserves the hair integrity. Satisfied, I broke the seal and was greeted with netted hair, again for extra protection. It came bundled, all ten pieces, divided into how you want to clip the extensions.

Here is the main part, it’s the bulkiest as you’re supposed to clip it from the crown depending on your desired hair length and volume. Simply bend the clips outward to open and then attach to your hair strands (the closer to scalp, the better the grip), pinch clips inward to close and secure.

So let’s talk about my whole experience with Irresistible Me. First, I like that it does mimic my own hair texture. Although royal ash blonde does not exactly match my “bronde”, I love the ombre look  it gave me. Second, I like the flexibility of this set. Meaning, I can clip few extensions depending on my mood: highlights on weekend, voluminous on Wednesday, side ombre on Thursday, etc. Third, when clipped securely (close to the scalp), I haven’t had accidents so far i.e extensions falling or clips sliding.

Can you style these extensions? absolutely! In fact I am planning to do hair tutorials using extensions some time soon. Can you wash ’em? according to the website, yes, preferably after 10-20 wears or depending on how unmanageable they become due to excessive styling. Do they feel heavy? yes, if you use all so clip sparingly as you wish. Do they feel like it’s pulling your scalp? if you don’t know how to use it or try to sleep with it on, I say yes but once you get the hang of it, no.

For this before-after transformation, I used the main and bulky hair piece and clipped it close to my crown section because I want the ombre extensions blend with my bronde hair. I also clipped one small piece on each side for a nice cascading effect. Needless to say, the lower you clip, the longer your hair becomes. My hair is naturally wavy and thick, here’s a closer shot so you can see the similarity of the texture with Irresistible Me extensions.

Bottom line, I like the quality of these hair extensions! I plan to purchase few colors (by piece) so I can add high or lowlights to my hair in between salon visits. To know more about Irresistible Me, visit the website and get 10 to 20 percent off your first purchase (unaffiliated link).

    The extension looks fabulous. I wouldn't have known if you had not marked your own hair and the extension in the photo. I've never tried an extension because I have been growing my hair for the last three years (up to the lower back now) but they would be great after the grand chop.

      I like this brand because the similarity of texture w/ my real hair is dope!

  2. August 26, 2015 / 11:33 am

    Wow, this looks absolutely amazing on you, Kath!

  3. August 26, 2015 / 6:29 pm

    Well, then! Be more gorgeous, why don't you!? 😛 But, in seriousness, that really blended in with your true hair seamlessly PUN INTENDED! <3 Gorgeous! <3

    Well you make everything look gorgeous, so I am sold! I have been wanting to try some extensions and don't really trust a lot of YT opinions anymore because they are so fake now. I do however trust you wholeheartedly and will check this brand out!

      Thanks much! I am flattered with your comment. I don't candy coat reviews, there's nothing wrong to say what doesn't work. As for these hair extensions, they have trial hair so open the main hair only when you're decided. Last time I checked they have 20% off discount. Kisses to you

    These extensions look great, you wear them so well and they match your hair perfect. I haven't tried them yet but I've been thinking about it to see if I want to grow my hair out.

    • August 27, 2015 / 2:40 am

      yeah, nice way to decide whether long hair is for you (again)

  6. August 27, 2015 / 12:15 am

    Long hair looks great on you! I've never tried hair extensions, but for thickness (because now suddenly in my 30s my hair has gone thin) I would love to try some!

      Girl I'm 41, don't talk about hair thinning, yo mama has a head full still, haha!

    These match your hair perfectly. I considered reviewing them but I'd never be able to do the great job you did. They look perfect for you.

  8. August 27, 2015 / 1:44 am

    Wow this looks fabulous on you and so natural looking. Your color choice was right on.

  9. August 27, 2015 / 3:21 am

    It's really pretty and I love your "bronde" color too!

  10. August 27, 2015 / 4:07 am

    Looks amazing on you!

  11. August 27, 2015 / 1:06 pm

    Beautiful! These extensions look so natural on you 🙂

  12. August 27, 2015 / 1:23 pm

    Those look great on you!!!

  13. August 27, 2015 / 6:10 pm

    These look amazing on you! While the colour isn't an exact match, they work really nicely with your colour.

  14. August 27, 2015 / 7:04 pm

    YOu look fabulous 😀 I am glad that this brand has improved so much over the years considering what it was when I first reviewed them a few years ago. I cut about 4-6 inches off my hair every 4 -6 months because my curls can take a beating if I don't so I totally like the fact that you can add extensions in if you want 😀

  15. August 28, 2015 / 2:18 pm

    Wow these look so fabulous on you! It looks like your real hair!!
