Alas, I am not a hair guru. Creative hair styling is on not my list of strengths. No matter how many YouTube videos I watch I still can’t get the hang of those chic hair styles. However, with regular care, I can easily maintain my shoulder length hair. However, I also need to retain the length that I grow each month. I year for longer hair. Over this last year, I was slowly getting there. Then this summer I tried a new hair style in preparation for our tip to Costa Rica. It was an epic fail and I lost 4 inches of hair!!! Oh, I cried like a baby while my husband rolled his eyes at me. “It’s just hair. It will grow back”, he assured he. Yes, it will grow back, but four inches of hair is 8 months of growth for me. GRRR!!!! Lesson learned: Never again will I attempt that hair style. (My hair grows an average of 1/2 an inch a month with the help of daily vitamins, lots of water, daily moisture, low manipulation, and heat only once a month. It grows faster in the crown of my head.) Therefore, I’m on a hair journey like so many other women, to regain the health and length of my tresses. I have relaxed hair which I like very much. Will I eventually go natural? I’m undecided. I’ll get back to you on that.

In the meantime, I can have instant gratification with the help of Irresistible Me Hair extensions. Irresistible Me offers fabulous 100% Human Remy Hair Extensions at unbeatable prices, as low as $79. Their online store sells hair extensions, wigs, hair tools and hair care products. You can add length and volume in a matter of minutes. The best part…it’s “Jennifer proof” (meaning there is very little that I can do that will damage the length and health of my own hair). All this aside, when Irresistible Me contacted me to review their clip in hair extensions, I jumped at the chance. After a month of use, here are my thoughts on the clip in hair extensions from Irresistible Me.
My hair stylist and I watched the Irresistible Me color selection video to get a better idea of the color I needed. With her help, I selected the Color 1b (Natural black), 200 grams thick, 16 inches in length clip in hair extensions from the Royal Remy Hair Collection. This selection includes 10 clips in all: 1 pc of 4 clips (7.5″), 2 pcs of 3 clips (6″), 5 pcs of 2 clips (4″), 2 pcs of 1 clip (1.2″)
Let me tell you right now! I couldn’t be happier!
Speed of Shipment: My package arrived within 3 days of placing my order! (No, this not because I’m a blogger. Irresistible Me prides itself on fast shipment.)
Color Matching: The package arrived with 2 sections. The sealed larger section holds the hair extensions and extra clips.
The smaller section of the package holds a 3 clip sample piece. I first opened the sample section to make sure that the color, length, and thickness matched my hair. Note: Do not open the larger section until you’ve decided that the hair will be a good fit for you. Once the seal is broken on the larger section, you cannot return the hair, for hygienic purposes. After I decided that everything matched, I opened the larger section to use the rest of the hair extensions.Look & Feel: The look and feel of the Royal Remy Hair collection can be summed with one word: fabulous. The hair isn’t coarse at all. It’s soft and silky smooth. It’s shinny, but not so overly shinny that it did not blend in well with my relaxed hair. The thickness of the hair is consistent from the top to the bottom of the weft which provides a lot of body and bounce while wearing the extensions. Best of all, the hair doesn’t tangle easily or look matted by the end of the day. Score!Shedding: I have experienced little to no shedding during the use of my clip-ins. The hair doesn’t shed into many hand when I run my fingers though it, nor does it shed badly when I comb it.
Installation: Being relaxed, I wrap my hair in a silk scarf each night to keep it straight. In the morning, I remove my scarf, brush my hair into place, and then create a side part above my eyebrow. Next, I began adding the clip-in hair extensions. I pin the crown of the hair out of the way. Then I use the middle of my ear as a guide to create a horizontal part across the back of my head, from ear to ear. I add the 4 clip weft, the thickest piece first. Next, I use the top of my ear to create another horizontal part from ear to ear. I add the 3 clip weft. From there, I add a 2 clip weft on my left temple and 2 clip weft in my right temple. This gives me length to the sides of my hair and frames my face. Last, I gently comb my hair into place using a wide tooth comb. Viola!
I am ready for the day! From here I head out the door or I stay in the mirror to add more curls. This entire process has only taken me minutes, and I’ve only used 5 of my 10 pieces! *I do not use all 10 pieces because I’m incredibly tender headed. Wearing all 10 pieces gives me a headache by the end of the day. After a month of trial and error, I find that that just wearing 5 pieces creates the look that I want without causing a headache.
Style & Maintence: I love how easy it has been to style and maintain the Irresistible Me Royal Remy clip-ins. I simply comb them through using a wide tooth comb, curl them, and the give a light spritz of hairspray each day. Slowly, I am taking advantage of the vast wealth of video tutorials on the Irresistible Me website. They are so helpful! When my hair extensions need washing, I hang then on a clothes hanger then shampoo and condition them. This keeps the hair from tangling. I allow them to air dry over night on the hanger. To get them looking as good as new, lightly spritz them with a heat protectorate. Then 1 or 2 passes with the flat iron has them perfect. Last, a light spritz of hair spray keeps the beautiful curls in tact.
