    Default Have you ever been through an "extensions" phase?

    I did. From freshman year of highschool, til senior year. I actually didnt actually STOP wearing them 100% til this summer apon starting LHC.



    (Ignore the heavy make-up. I just like it. LOL)

    I dont think it was too bad. Most people could NEVER tell I wore them.
    I struggled to stop wearing them, because they made me feel prettier. Insecurities. Meh.
    But I am very happy to say I jumped OFF that band wagon.

    Anyone else been through this on here? :P

    When I had to cut my hair short because of severe damage I was tempted.. Especially because I was visiting the US and extensions there are much cheaper than they are here.. But I resisted temptation and I'm glad. Also, the idea that people notice that suddenly your hair is longer, and then shorter again... strange, haha.

    But they look nice in you pictures!

    I was very tempted to have it a year ago, did some resarch on google and found some horrible stories, voila temptation gone.

    - Oh yes,
    Used to have black, purple and white extensions on clips and wear them all the time ^^

    Nowadays I wear synthetic dreads every now and then and want to let my natural colour come out, but it's dark enough so I can wear black and it doesnt look weird or anything . . and I let myself bleach and dye my sidecuts, last night made them blue/purple . .
    So I let myself still do some stuff like that, because I know the feeling of havign long hair is nice . Still I enjoy taking dreads or human hair clips out, because sometimes long hair is annoying and short hair is so much easier . .

    I go through "extension phases" on a regular basis. They usually follow an encounter with someone elses spectacular long hair. For me though, it is all about thickening up my fine hair and actually, for once, having the ends look as full as the length around my shoulders. My overall length is good these days with my ends falling nearly to my belt line. But when I see other longhairs with beautiful, thick, and even ends I think(for a moment at least, I think) that with a few extensions, added to my own fine hair, I could at least see and feel what that would be like. One of these days I'll either take the plunge and buy and try some, or my own hair will fill out at the ends on its own. It is good to be a patient person when you have long hair goals. My sig picture is from June '10 and I haven't had a trim since.

    I did, for 3 years. I still own some good quality clip in ones that match my hair colour, and I wear them for special occasions
    Currently growing out dyed hair, and then it's on to waist
    Last dye - 10th December 2013, will cut at 5 inches of roots

    I did, when I was 15/16. I had BSL hair, blonde on top, black underneath, with reddish black glue in extensions that were TBL. Did I mention GLUE IN?? Haha.
    My mama put them in for me, but they only lasted about a week and a half. They were a pain! I couldn't brush them, washing them was super hard, I was grateful to have them out.
    I had to do a full head soak in EVOO, though, that was a ttreat
    I then decided I wanted super long hair, that wasn't glued in
    Luckily, my hair was never TOO damaged, and I was able to begin growing after I chopped all the dye off into a pixie
    Now I'm to that length and super grateful for it.

    I have a couple of these in black:



    I pop them on over a bun to make it look more special sometimes - does that count?

    I've ben tempted, but I would never get them... Waste of money that I can spend on hair products that can better my real hair!
