Ever since I cut my hair short last summer, it never grew long again. I’ve tried several hair lengthening products but they’ve all proven to be useless. My hair has been shoulder-length for months now and still no sign of growth. Now it’s stuck in this stage where maintenance is nothing but a pain in the a**. I can explain how frustrating it is in my part. If you know any hair product that could help me, please let me know. I’ll be forever thankful. πŸ™‚ 
Last February, Mhisha, the owner of MhiShoppe and The Touch of Yellow blog, offered to send me hair extensions. It was timely too because our annual Org event was just weeks away. I was super excited to show up at the venue with long luscious curls. But much to my dismay, when I fitted the hair extensions with my full sequined dress, the hair kept sticking to my dress. I should’ve bought a different dress. πŸ™ Needless to say, I wasn’t able to wear it to the event. *sob
Japan’s Class A Hair Extension
Available in 4 colors: Black, Brown, Light Brown and Dark Brown.
Dimensions: 10 inches wide and 23 inches long
Washable but NOT Heat Resistant
It has a total of 5 clips on the net part to keep it in place throughout wear. They’re small but really effective in making sure the hair extension doesn’t slip down. Like a comb, these clips are toothed to give a better grip on the hair. Plus it’s made up of metal so it’s definitely sturdy. 
The hair extension itself is very smooth, silky and obviously shinier than my damaged hair. It looks very healthy and the color is just extremely vibrant. It’s fairly easy for me to run my fingers through it to fix it and remove tangles. However, it becomes harder to maintain after a while. If I were you, I wouldn’t dare try to use a brush or fine-toothed comb to remove the tangles – especially the curls. This will ruin the hair extension. Just use your fingers or a big comb; that will do the job. As for storage, I keep mine in the long but narrow plastic it came with. So far I don’t see any problem with it. πŸ™‚
Just look at that luscious curls! <3
As promised, here’s a simple tutorial on how to put on hair extensions:
One quick note before we start, I’m really bad in curling hair. I do apologize in advance. πŸ˜›
I used my little sister as my model, by the way.
To start, curl the hair just like how you normally curl it then divide it in the middle. Using a teasing comb or just an ordinary comb with finer bristles, tease the part of the hair where the clips will be placed. This gives the hair more volume and more “handle” for the clips to hold on to – to avoid it from slipping off. Secure the placement of the extension using the clips and then put the rest of the hair down. Using your fingers, run it through the hair to mix the extension with the real hair – to make it look less fake. Viola! There you have it. Longer hair in an instant! πŸ˜€
TIP: If you want the extension to look longer, divide the hair closer to the nape. If you want it shorter, divide the hair and pin the hair extension near the crown.
Now for the end result,

Again, sorry for the messy-looking curls. As much as I would like to say that I intended it to look “messy-sexy” like that, I didn’t. That was the best I could do given my complete lack of skills. I’m really sorry. LOL! Oh well.. there’s nothing I could do about it now. *wink Anyway, as you can clearly see from the before and after photo, the extension is way more obvious than how I pictured it would be. And to be honest, it’s not the hair extension’s fault. You see my sister’s hair to too thick that one layer of extension would really look out of place. 
Bottom line is, if you have insanely thick mane like my sister and me, hair extensions of this type may not be for us. But if you have thinner hair, well, good for you. I envy you for being able to rock hair extensions and change hair styles in a whim. I’m sure this would look gorgeous and extremely natural on you. *jelly much!
