All Things Hair
I wrote this post awhile ago but am doing a quick update on it! I get a ton of questions about my extensions and color so I wanted to just ‘redo’ it so I was sharing the right information 🙂 Also, my extensions are 22in and I usually purchase the wavy ones since I think they hold a curl better. I don’t know the brand of hair since Daria always orders it for me when she puts it in but I can ask the next time I go! Upkeep is usually every 3-4 months to have the beads and hair moved up and I purchase new hair twice a year. Hope this helps and my previous blog is copy, pasted and updated below!
Let’s chat all things related to hair. I have no idea why I haven’t done this blog sooner since this is VERY common question I receive but I’m doing it now. I’ve had extensions for probably 10 years. I started with the clip in ones in college and my mom saw me carrying around my extensions in a baggy on the weekends to get ready at girlfriends houses and she took pitty on me and started paying for me to go someone to have them done. I did tape in ones for a few years… did not like them. At the time I didn’t know any better but looking back they were not for me. I currently do microlinks and am a huge fan. It depends on your hair type to figure out what is best for you though. I’ve been going to the same place for my extensions, my color and my styling for almost six years. I’ll link all the places/people below for you guys!
I’m also including any products I use at home. Admittedly I get blowouts when we are home and I try my best to find somewhere when we travel also but I still have favorite products I use in those rare instances I wash my own hair lol … I also have a curling I use for any touch ups I may need at home in between washes!
The final question I get is how I sleep with my hair. If I am home my hair is up. I put it in a bun and either clip it or use the ‘slip’ hair ties so it doesn’t leave a crease. Also, when in doubt… dry shampoo.
Extensions- Daria from Chicago Extension Twins in Chicago
Hair Color- Nicole from Dahlia Rose Salon in Glenview. Before I moved I was going to Bethany at Mario Tricoci for 5 plus years and she always did an amazing job as well!
