Hairdreams hair extension review
I have wanted permanent hair extensions for years. Finally, I have them and I’m excited to share the details about Hairdreams Hair Creations, the extensions I decided to purchase. I’ve held off for years on permanent extensions because of the risk involved with damage to my own hair. I waited for a solution that I could trust. Finally, I heard about Hairdreams and feedback from women who have worn them was really positive. If you take care of the hair properly, upon removal, no damage is being reported. The price was right so I decided to go for it!
I’ve wanted to add about six inches to my hair for the past five years. The bottom line is your hair will only grow to a certain length. There’s nothing out there that is going to add six inches of length except extensions. Some products might give you a little boost but if your hair growth cycle is on the shorter side, genetics will prevail. That’s the bottom line and don’t let anyone tell you different. I’ve tried everything and my hair hits a certain length and that’s it. In a prior post, I talked about how the hair growth cycle works in depth so check it out. It’s quite interesting. Today, I’m sharing all the scoop on the permanent hair extensions I selected. I’ve been wearing them a couple of weeks now and I am in love with them! A lot of people have been asking me questions about the extensions so I’ve linked to the brand FAQ here where just about every possible question is answered.
The Hairdreams hair is real human hair and there are two grades of hair available (5-star and 7-star). I chose the 5-star hair and I was quite impressed with how healthy and beautiful the hair is. It has a bounce to it that I’ve never had in my natural hair. The ends are never frizzy and the hair appears shiny. I can’t imagine what the 7-star hair is like as I don’t know how the hair could be of any higher quality than I already have. Hair is sold by the bundle and during the consultation, the number of bundles required to get the volume desired is determined and then the hair is ordered. I have balyage color and the hair that arrived was a perfect match to the color I have on my hair. You can see below the beautiful caramel highlights in the Hairdreams hair. I was so excited when I saw it!
Quite a few women at the salon I go to have worn these extensions and experienced no damage. The company has been providing hair extensions in the U.S. since 2001 and originated in Europe. Other popular extensions look beautiful but cause breakage and I wasn’t willing to sacrifice my own hair. There are quite a few technologies available to attach hair extensions to your natural hair but I felt the Nano Laserbeamer technology offered by Hairdreams was innovative and would be the most comfortable. It only took about 90 minutes for all the hair to be attached using the new device and the bonds are attached five at a time. Super speedy! After a few days of wearing the extensions, I couldn’t feel them at all (not even when I lay down). The bonds are made of a nylon material and they are super thin and lay flat on the head. They are attached around the hair and not directly to the hair which helps to prevent damage. Unless I dig into my hair with my fingers, I don’t feel or see the bonds whether my hair is worn up or down. I love that about these extensions. Clip ins are just miserable for me to wear and I’ve heard other permanent extensions are not comfortable. Let alone the damage they can cause when removed.
I ordered 20 inch extensions but after having them attached, I had at least an inch removed as the length was longer than I expected. This hair, if cared for properly, can be worn for up to six months. It’s really not difficult to care for. The key to keeping the extensions healthy and maximizing the wear time is brushing them with the special Hairdreams brush and being cautious not to use oil based products that can break down the hair bonds. Having the extra hair has not added additional time to get ready for me in the mornings and I don’t feel as if they are more difficult to care for than what I already did for own hair. Without a doubt, at the six month mark when I have to remove them, I will have new bundles of hair ordered and waiting to be put right back in. The cost of the hair including the installation was approximately $1600.00. The cost will vary depending on the quality, length, and number of bundles purchased. I’ve never loved my hair more than I do with the Hairdreams extensions!
After Hairdreams! I love the new hair!
