I love everything about hair. Most of my life I have had short hair (picture above is of my daughter at a Halloween performance) I think short hair is fun and sassy. There are so many pros and cons to short and long hair. I put extensions in my hair and you can see the difference in the pictures above. I went to really short to really long. Here is my pros and cons on extensions.
Instant long hair
Many ways to style long hair
You can throw it up in a ponytail
You can wear a hat without looking like a boy
You just feel more like a girl with long hair
You don't have to wash your hair everyday (sometimes I can go without washing for 5 days)
Once it is styled you really don't need to do anything until you wash it again.
I can pile it on top of my head and forget about it.
Huge learning curve
Washing your hair is a pain and you need TIME to wash and style it, up to two hours
You need to know how to hide your real hair underneath the extensions. Cant stand when ladies have extensions and you can see their real hair.
It is a pain to swim.
You need to treat your hair like it is a baby.
Brush your hair and it is EVERYWHERE.
All in all I love my extensions. Like I said I love to do hair so the time comment is not an issue to me. I have had lots of different extensions. Clip in, single strand, and weaf. The weaf is my favorite so far. So if you want to extend your hair make sure you do all your research so you will go into very educated. You don't want to pay all that money and then be disappointed. Make sure you hairstylist know how to put in extensions. Ask her how many time she has done it, or if she can send you somewhere that knows what they are doing. One last thing, make sure you are getting REAL hair. One time I had extensions in at a very upscale salon and I thought I was getting real hair, but the bought senthetic hair. Needless to say when I went to style it, it all melted together and it was a huge mess. Many tears were shed over that.
