ClipHair, Hair Extension Review

A week and I think I'm finally getting back to reality! Coming to you today with a review of some hair extensions I recently bought from Cliphair..

As you may know, choosing the right colour of hair extensions online can be very difficult. Luckily Cliphair have a colour matching system in where you email them a photo of your hair and they tell you which colour they think will best suit your natural hair. So of course I did this and was told #613 Bleach Blonde.

I bought the set of 15 Inch Double Wefted Full Head Remy Clip in Human Hair Extensions - Bleach Blonde (#613) which includes :- 
Two 8 inch (20cm) wide wefts - 3 clips per weft
Two 6 inch (15cm) wide wefts - 3 clips per weft
Two 4 inch (10cm) wide wefts - 2 clips per weft
Two 2 inch (5cm) wide wefts - 1 clip per weft

I don't have super thick hair, but I certainly have a lot of it.. So I went for the double wefted set, which if I'm honest isn't at all that thick. On the website it says 15 inch is 150g which is probably about right but isn't quite enough to blend nicely with my natural hair (Just a note to anyone looking into these extensions really, not a bad point of them). The extensions themselves are really nice quality remy hair which is always what I look for when getting any kind of extensions.

Each clip is fitted with the silicone band for added protection for your hair. But as you may be able to see from the above photo, they aren't sewn on all that nicely. They must of been sewn while the clips were open as when you snap them shut, there is a slight pull. And It's pretty messily done.



They didn't match my natural hair when they arrived so I had to get my hair dresser to put some darker highlights through them so they blended better. I haven't taken a photo since she added the highlights but I'll add that in as and when. The set I got retailed for £54.99 with free P&P. (Although when you sign up with them they give you a 5% off code, which isn't a lot but it's a nice incentive).

I'm going to end it on a sad note, yes there was shedding.. as you can see in the above photo it wasn't just the odd strand that you would expect either. Little clumps like this have come out, and there's been around 3 so far which doesn't give me high hopes. But I shall keep my fingers crossed that that's the end of that!

I know this post was a little all over the place, and I apologize.. Hopefully I'll be in better form next time. 
Hope this review helps any of you looking to buy clip in hair extensions.
