Feeling Glamorous with Irresistible Me Hair Extensions

Yes, it was long to colour in!

I remember reading an article in a magazine (Cosmo?) ages ago that said something along the lines of great makeup doesn't matter if your hair's a mess. It went on to explain that if your hair's nicely done, people will notice if you didn't do makeup, however if you're hair's a mess, they won't notice your makeup at all and just notice the messy hair. That article stuck with me all these years. I'm sure no one will remember your hair if it's nicely coiffed, but your makeup will stand out.

Think about it: You frame a picture before you put it on the wall to help it stand out (and protect it) and the same goes for your hair. Your face is your canvas and your hair is framing it.

See how nicely it frames the face?
My hair is already fairly long, however I can never get pretty luscious curls because 1) my hair doesn't hold them very well and 2) it needs to be a tad bit longer for what I have envisioned. (And maybe the fact that I don't own a curling iron?)

Luckily for me, I had the opportunity to test out some hair extension from Irresistible Me. Irresistible Me makes clip-in hair extensions made of 100% Human Remy hair. Available in different styles (Silky Touch, Royal Remy, Volume Vixen, Highlights and Ponytail), colours, length and weight, there's something that will satisfy everyone.

Price ranges from $79 to $359, depending on the length and style of the clip in hair extensions you get. However, there is currently a Back To School Sale and the starting price is $63!

In inches, the lengths are 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24 and you have the option of 100g, 140g or 200g of hair. The Volume Vixen line comes with 260g of hair.  Depending on the length of hair you're getting, you might not have much choice for weight (14 and 16 are available in all 3 weights, however 20, 22 and 24 are only available in 200g)

Here's what you get, based on weight:

Their are a total of 12 colours available, ranging from black to platinum, the colours are ready to be clipped in or dyed to make it a perfect match or to have more fun with your look. If you're not sure on the colour to choose, they have a pretty helpful video that compares each of the colours.

I chose the Royal Remy (which is the closest match to unprocessed hair) in Royal Medium Brown (#4), 20inches and 200g.

I received my package in a very timely manner (less than 1 week). The hair came sealed in a bag inside of a sturdy box. There are two sides to this bag: 9 pieces in one and 1 piece in the other. Open the side with only 1 piece as this is your sample piece. You can see if the colour and length match/work. If it does, great! Open the rest and have fun!  If it doesn't, leave the other side sealed, talk to their customer service, and you can get it exchanged! That, my friends, is customer service! (It also comes with a few extra clips, just in case.)

The colour, Royal Medium Brown, was an identical match to my natural hair colour - red highlights and all! The length was perfect for me; it added extra length (and loads of volume) while still looking natural. The hair also feels natural (of course, since it is 100% human remy hair). You can't feel the difference.

Super tired and forgot to take a picture before going out. 7 clips and left straight(ish)

The first time I put them in was for a movie date with my man (Ant Man btw, very good!). It was a hot day and it was the first time I put in hair extensions. It took a bit of time, but I managed to clip them in without any problems. I got 7 of the 10 pieces in. Honestly, 10 pieces is A LOT of hair! All my life, I've been told how thick my hair is, but after adding the Irresistible Me hair extensions, I now understand the true meaning of thick hair.

When you're not used to it, it takes some adjusting. You have extra weight, length and heat on your head/back of your neck. By the end of the night, I came to the conclusion that I could not wear them on days where the weather was nearing 40 degrees Celsius with the humidity!

The following weekend was much cooler, so I decided to give it another try. 9 clips in this time around and it took much less time. I curled it all (while clipped in) with my hair straightener (because I don't have proper curling tools!). It was a bit of a learning curve at first, but I quickly realized that the Irresistible Me Royal Remy hair took to heat styling much better than my natural hair. This meant less hairspray and less time. Of course, by the end of the day, my natural hair's curls were falling, while the extensions were still nicely curled.

Even though I got more clips in, it didn't feel as heavy as the first time. I don't know if it's because I got used to it, or if styling had anything to do with it, but I was quite thankful!

Overall, I'm quite happy that I had the opportunity to try the Irresistible Me clip in hair extensions and I know I'll be a pro in no time!

Irresistible Me also sells full lace wigs, hair accessories (they have some super cute hair combs and headbands) and some heat styling tools (take a look at that curling wand!).

  1. These are INCREDIBLE on you! And what an amazing shade match too! WOW! I love how voluminous it makes your hair look - just gorgeous.

  2. These are a perfect match for your hair!
    I don't know how they would work for me given my natural wavy/curly hair.
