Irresistible Me Silky Touch Hair Extensions Photos and Review

I have never worn hair extensions before so when Irresistible Me contacted me I was pretty excited to try them out.  I lost quite a bit of hair from the crown area and near my hairline from postpartum hairloss.  I was losing huge clumps everyday!  This is the main reason why I cut my hair short.  Not that I lose less hair or anything, it's just easier to deal with the fallen hair and also less tangles.

I chose the color Natural Black from the Silky Touch line, which is a warm toned black and it matches my hair well.  My natural hair is still a tad warmer.  One other nice thing about chopping off my hair is I was finally able to cut off the last of my color treated ends so now it is all my natural hair color.

I picked the 20 inch extensions and 200 grams.  It comes with 10 pieces. 1 x 4-clip weft, 2 x 3-clip wefts, 5 x 2-clip wefts and 2 x 1-clip wefts.  The package was shipped to me very quickly and came in a sturdy box.



Inside is a large ziplock type bag that has 2 pockets, the small side on the right has a single 2 clip weft and 3 spare clips.  The larger side on the left holds the rest of the hair extensions.  They give you the 1 weft so you can take it out and make sure it matches your hair color and to make sure you like it.  If it doesn't you can send it all back and exchange it for the right shade.


I have naturally curly hair but the curls on my right side of my head look different than my left side so I thought it would be too hard to blend so I straightened it.  If you missed it you can check out how I cut my hair here.


 The back before starting.  I grew SO many grey hairs during my pregnancy!  It's everywhere, ugh.


I tied up most of my hair and left a small section at the bottom.  This is where the big 4 clip weft will go.


There is a dent in there from the rubber band that was on it.  I didn't do anything to the extensions before starting except to brush them out.


I then parted my hair slightly above the first weft and put in another 3 clip weft.


Then I parted my hair near the crown and added a 2 clip weft.  I don't really know what I'm doing here just adding hair as I go up.  The first thing I'm noticing about now is how weird these clips feel on my head.  They don't hurt they just feel heavy.  Later I get used the feeling and it goes away.


Now the sides.  I parted above my ear and added a 2 clip weft.  Then I parted above that and added a 1 clip weft.  Since I have less hair on this side due to part that was enough I thought.


I don't have photos of the other side but I did the same thing except I added an extra 2 clip weft.  I think I needed to clip in the extensions a little closer to my face, it's really not blending that well.


The back all finished.  I don't have layers so it looks pretty blunt.  Might need to clip in the last hair higher up my crown.



Dylan break!



I flat ironed the back a bit.  My son kept me running back and forth so I didn't spend as much time flat ironing but I think it helped.



My solution?  Half up-do!  Looks pretty good now.


Unless you were inspecting me closely you couldn't tell I have extensions in.  I think if I were to wear them in the future I would take the time to curl my hair and the extensions.  It would just blend a lot better I think.  I was looking more for length not volume so I think I didn't need to wear all 10 wefts either.

One notable thing about these extensions is that they have a smell.  Like a musty cigarette smell.  I asked Irresistible Me about it and was told that some people notice a smell, some don't.  I am very sensitive to scents so not surprised it bothered me.  Washing the extensions take care of the smell problem.  So if you're like me you may want to wash them before using them for the first time.

So I washed them to see how the hair felt and smelled after.  I used Kirkland brand shampoo and conditioner.  After I patted them gently with a towel and just draped them over my shower rod to dry.

The hair was soft and silky and smell free!  It got a bit wavy but nothing a flat iron or curling iron won't fix.  So yeah, I recommend washing these before use.


Pros:
  • Easy to clip in
  • Easy exchange policy in case of damage or the hair not matching your color or meeting your expectations
  • Gives instant volume and length

Cons:
  • Has an unpleasant odor, requires washing first
  • Lots of fallout (my bathroom floor and sink had a lot of hair that came out)
