Sometimes life can feel a little out of control as a mom, so when we find something that can be a simple improvement—like a fabulous haircut, style or color change—it can make a gal feel giddy.
I’ve been known to cut my long locks short when I was struggling with weight or having issues in a relationship. I admit it—it was one thing I could ‘fix’ easily. Other women acknowledge the same.
But you don’t have to make permanent changes to your hair with this cool product I was asked to try out recently: Secret Extensions.
It’s a brand new product that helps make your hair look longer and fuller.
My almost-16-year old liked playing around with different colors to see how they’d look on her…I liked that she didn’t have to do anything drastic to know for sure if a splash of red highlights were a fit for her face (based on the photo above, I say yes).
I liked trying the look to fill out my locks that seem to be thinning out as I age.
At about $40 for a set, these extensions are affordable for most people, and super simple to use. If you can figure out how to use a headband, you’ll have no problem putting in the extensions. They go on like a headband, but you pull some of your hair through on top of the band to make it all blend together easily. It really is that simple. You can see in the video on the website just as simple it is.
Then, you can style your hair—and the extensions—to look any way you’d like. I personally love the full, straight look on top with a large curl toward the ends. My hot rollers make that simple. I just roll the extensions with my own hair.
One word of caution, though. You may need more than one extension set. I used two and liked the look. My daughter only put one in and it was great for showing hair in front of her shoulders, but that really didn’t leave any hair hanging over her shoulders on her back. That just didn’t look as natural to me.
Also, be sure you click on the models on the site to match your correct hair color because the full face is a better indicator of the hair shade than the smaller image. Then again, if you’re really looking for different shades (my hair is darker than my daughter’s and I had a perfect match…she ended up trying mine with red highlights and liked how that looked with her complexion), it won’t matter as much if you have an identical match.
The bottom line: if you are looking for a simple way to make a quick, temporary change in your look, Secret Extensions could be a great, inexpensive way to do it.
