Having hair extensions or weaves used to be somewhat of a taboo topic in the past but now it's a trend throughout all communities, women of other ethnicity and most celebrities; from the likes of Beyonce, the Kardashians to Katie Price.
Nowadays fewer women are finding it less uncomfortable to talk about their extensions, weave on or wearing a wig than before. Extensions are now beautifully made, and natural looking.
I have a busy life especially with kids, and since I like my hair to look immaculate at all times but with little time spent on it, I find it manageable and easier with extensions on and also it’s a great way to transform my look. I wear different forms of extension, from single braids to cornrow and straight to Afro Kinky hair, I have no preference as long as it looks good on me I’m ready to go.
I wear extensions to go on holidays, and I like to change my style up with a miraculous new hair makeover to match the new fashion season or my mood. I can’t help it I’m spontaneous. You know what I mean my fellow natural sisters, maintaining my natural hair isn’t an easy task but I wouldn’t change my hair for anything, the Afro texture is so beautiful, and I love it.
With my natural hair especially the cold weather does not do justice to it so extensions are my holy grail at winter. I’m sure a lot of you can identify with me. It gives my hair a break from the cold and stops it from breaking.
When on holidays, the pool situation and my natural hair shrinkage is no joke. Holidays I love to spend more time exploring and less time grooming my hair so having it on is also a good way to achieve that. A safe and quality hair will require less attention and that's what I choose.
For those of you who still find it awkward to wear extensions, I’m here to tell you there is nothing wrong with it, if that’s your thing, wear it proudly. There are many ways to wear extensions, find the style that suits you and experiment. Treat your hair and give it a break.
Let's be women with full of choices but not limitations. You know what they say about hair, hair should be your Crown and Glory.
The hair I have installed on this blog is from Gaknobi Collections. It's an unprocessed Virgin Straight Brazilian hair. I sometimes curl it with a curling iron to achieve that effect in the pictures above or leave it in its original state. I have four bundles installed plus a free part closure.
2x16” at £60 each 2x18” at £65 each Closure £55 Weight: About 3.5 Oz per bundle (about 100 grammes)
The hair texture is beautiful, its soft, smooth and manageable as well as tangle-free. It doesn't shed as much. It has the right consistency of silkiness to it; it's thick and bouncy relaxed style texture
The colour is natural off black colour 1B.
I have had it in for five weeks in the picture, and it's still as good as new.
