As a Woman with alopecia, I feel I’m quite qualified to review the ‘Irresistible Me’ hair extensions. I can’t even count how many wigs, hairpieces, and extensions I’ve had in my life.
May I just begin this review by saying: ‘Oh my gosh! Best extensions ever!!’
While I know women with healthy hair would love these extensions, I wanted to write this review on behalf of women such as myself; those with Alopecia.
I was given these extensions in exchange for my honest review. No stipulations were given.
I have had alopecia since my teens.
There are different types of alopecia. I have Alopecia Areata, which is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles , which is where hair growth begins. (IWebMD). In my case, it mainly manifests itself as just a diffuse thinning of my hair.
Alopecia Universalis means a medical condition involving rapid loss of all hair, including eyebrows and eyelashes.
Then there is alopecia that comes in between these two extremes.
Everyone’s alopecia is different. For instance, in my case, it’s the seasonal kind. The summer is great and that’s when I have the most hair. Winter comes and I can expect the hair to start falling out again and having to use liquid plumber to clear the shower from all my hair going down the drain.
Although my hair is so thin that you can see through to my scalp, I am just not yet ready to wear a wig. I live where the summers are over 100 degrees. So for me, they’re really hot and uncomfortable. The extensions are just so much lighter.
Here are closeups of my scalp and a picture of my alopecia hair:
I have had wigs that cost over $1,000.00 and hair pieces for $29.00 and have found that the bigger the price doesn’t necessarily mean the better the product.
DESCRIPTION FROM THE IRRESISTIBLE HAIR EXTENSIONS SITE:
Silky Touch is our best-selling line. These 100% Remy human hair extensions are fantastic quality for a friendly price and can be very easily washed, heat styled, cut and colored to blend in your hair perfectly.
The thickness of the hair decreases slightly towards the ends just like normal hair does which will provide a completely natural look while wearing them.
I have, little by little, been going more of a blonde shade away from my dark brunette. I thought it would show less of my scalp.
First, picking out the color: I decided to go with a lighter color as I thought the darker just wasn’t quite right. My choice was Silky Golden Blonde, 14 inches and 100 grams.
Here is the box they came in. You can see the red background of the trial wefts.
Irresistible Me Hair Extensions
The package came to me in perfect shape from China and in just a few days after I ordered them. There are 2 pouches. One is larger because it contains all the extensions. The other is a smaller pouch whereby you can see an example of the color and texture before opening the larger package containing all the extensions that you can exchange.
I find that pretty genius, as nobody really wants extensions that had been on somebody else’s head.
This particular set is composed of 7 wefts of different sizes and thickness. The clips are very well sewn in.
When I opened the packet and realized that the color was a tiny bit lighter in color than my hair, I was a little worried. However they fit in really well.
I tend to wear extensions only when I go shopping or just running around. I do not wear them around the house.
My husband, whom I’ve told many times not to give me false praise, told me he loved it, He loved the color and everything (although he felt that my bangs had to be lighter, which would definitely be in the blonde category.)
So……I took out the extensions and they are just sooo silky. I couldn’t stop touching them.
I took this picture showing just one weft (the largest one), which I LOVE. I can go out with just the largest weft:
This picture was taken with all my wefts in and I must say that I still like just wearing the one weft. I went out this morning with this and I got complimented by the cashier.
Silky Golden Blonde in 14 inches,
I took my pictures with hair I picked up out of the box with no styling or trimming. Now I’m looking forward to really work with this great hair. I wanted you to see that you don’t need to use ALL the wefts. Or you can volumize with all the wefts.
Once I put them in, I fell in love with this gorgeous, perfect hair. This even rivals my former favorite extensions which cost $300.00.
This is 100% Human Remy hair, which is the finest hair you can buy,
WHY I AM NOW A FAN OF IRRESISTIBLE ME HAIR EXTENSIONS
The price cannot be matched. My extensions right now go for $59.00, down from $79.00.
What I love the most is that you can pick out the thickness you want. I don’t like thick extensions. They’re too heavy on my head.
