I finally got my first full set of keratin bond Great Lengths hair extensions and I am blown away.
Wow! I finally get to wear the fabulous hair that I provide to my clients and now I see why. once you have them in you never want them out!
Chelsea and I got done with work early the Friday before New Years Eve and we decided it would be the perfect time to put in my new hair. And right before New Year’s Eve what a treat. I had already ordered my hair, 6 bundles of 18 inch hair. "Now that's a lot of hair." Chelsea and I had a great time gabbing away and we were both so excited to finally see me with long hair. I do have a lot of hair naturally but it is so fine it never grows past my collarbone with out breaking and I eventually have to cut it. So I was super in love when we were done and I now have full body hair down to my bra strap! I couldn’t wait to get home and show my fiancé who had no idea I was getting them put in that evening. Surprise!
And surprised was he ever! He thought that I had a late client that evening and was blown away by my new hair. He LOVED it and promptly took me out to dinner to show off my new locks. That weekend we headed down to Charlotte NC for a New Year’s Eve party and got to see some friends. It was funny to see how many people didn’t really notice and these are close friends. I took it as a compliment as the hair looks so natural like it always belonged to me. There were other people that would give me a deep stare. Evaluating me and my looks because they knew something was different but could not pin point it. Others were just shocked about how fast my hair grew. ;)
Then there were my friends that did notice and absolutely loved it. It was funny to watch them go put their fingers through my hair to see how they were attached. That evening a very attractive stranger told me “you have the most beautiful hair!” So yes I was totally loving my hair extensions right from the start!
As the weeks went on the love affair with my hair only got stronger. I finally washed it and was stoked to see it was super wavy just like my natural hair. It was so low maintenance just like my hair, I just let it air dry into beautiful beach waves with the help of R&Co curl primer of course. I was able to do elaborate up dos with ease with my hair because i had so much extra hair. My fishtail braids looked huge and amazing and I finally was able to do the half up half down bun thing I’d been seeing all over Instagram. Once I styled my hair for the week I could keep it that way for a week. This hair has some serious memory. From straightening to curling these extensions hold their shape.
Some things that were challenges were that my scalp got super itchy the first few weeks. I’ve read and heard from others that this is totally normal but I couldn’t leave my house without my rat tail comb to itch my scalp with. The hair is heavy but I didn’t really notice a difference until I shampooed - and damn its heavy. Some people get a really sore scalp the first week but I didn’t get any of that. The first week or so the hair is pretty staticky. I recommend getting the R&Co product foil to help with this. It’s a total game changer and smells amazing don’t leave home with out it! You have to brush it A LOT! Especially the first few weeks. It’s like wearing a wig and it WILL tangle. For any one getting Great Lengths extensions, make sure you get the Great Lengths brush as well or you will be sorry. I brushed my hair like four times a day at first, now I’m more relaxed with it but always brush it once a day from roots to ends. It feels really good too. Always put your hair in a loose ponytail or braid before bed or you will wake up with tangles. I cant stress this enough!
All and all I have to say I’m obsessed with my hair and honestly haven’t felt this beautiful in a while. In fact I’ve already made my next appointment in May to get my next full set in. I’m pretty sure I’m a lifer. So that being said if you are on the fence about taking the plunge on Great Lengths hair extensions, just do it.
Hands down it is the best hair you will ever have on your head!
