Review | Hairtrade Hair Extensions*

I was recently offered to review these hair extensions by a company called Hairtrade, through the Etail PR blogger network.
This was the first time I've tried hair extensions, purely because my hair is reasonably long and thick already.
I received the I&K 18" Clip In Straight Hair Extensions In Dark Blonde* which I have to say are an almost perfect colour match. Considering I have my hair highlighted and it's naturally darker underneath, I didn't think they would. 
However, you can order a colour sample for a £1 to make sure you are receiving the correct shade and then the cost can then be redeemed against your next order of hair extensions.
The extensions are made out of 100% human hair, which means they can be washed, curled and straightened just like you would your own hair. They feel super soft and silky too.

"I&K human hair extensions are made in a unique way, as each set is made by hand individually, and not cut from one weft. This gives the advantage of more hair being added to each of the clip in hair extension pieces, making the hair look much thicker. Each clip in hair extension piece has been designed to fit your to your head closely, making our clip in hair extensions look as natural as your own hair."

The extensions come in twelve separate pieces - 1x8",1x7", 2x6", 6x1/2" and 2x1/2 with no clips which are test pieces. As I've never worn hair extensions before, I was a little unsure where to clip them in. I decided on clipping the bigger sections at the back of my head and the smaller pieces around the sides.
As you can see from the pictures, my hair looks a lot thicker. I think I would wear them when having my hair up as the extensions give my hair much more volume as in the bottom photo. There's not back combing, I literally scraped my hair back into a ponytail.

If you are looking for your first set of extensions or looking for something new to try, I definitely recommend checking out Hairtrade. Or if hair extensions isn't your thing, they also sell top branded haircare - Bedhead, Fudge, Paul Mitchell, electrical hair tools, fake tan and so much more!

Do you wear hair extensions?
