Hi everyone! So as most of you probably know from my social media platforms I finally got my extensions applied. I have been wanting to get these done for a couple of years now, so i'm delighted to finally have them.
Since posting about the extensions online I received a lot of questions, so i'm hoping to answer them all here in this blog post.
Why I decided to get bonded extensions applied..
To be honest my hair was driving me insane!! It was damaged from overuse of heated products and started to thin out and split towards the end, last year I decided to let the colour grow out and get back to my natural colour to give my hair a little break.
I had been using clip in extensions for years, but started to get fed up clipping them in every morning.
I wanted full, thick, bouncy hair & just knew id loved to try the bonded extensions, I read up on them for months and just loved the idea of them. So since then they were added to my list!
Where I went to get them applied..
I went to amazing Grow Unltd in Waterford City to have my extensions done. I had been following the girls online and fell in love with their transformation pictures.
Also one of my friends previously had her hair done with Siadbh for her 21st, she absolutely loved them and her natural hair had no damage afterwards!!
I rang to book in with the girls a few weeks back and was giving a time and day to call down for my consultation.
During the consultation they get a chance to look at your hair and match it up to the colour you're looking for, they know how many stands to order to create the look you want, and will also know which range would suit your hair best. This will determine the price of your extensions.
I was looked after by Katie for my consultation. After a chat and getting to know the difference between the extensions, Katie knew exactly what I was looking for. Within minutes she had my hair matched up to three beautiful tones and knew exactly how many stands to order for my thick, bouncy look.
I then booked in for my 'transformation' the following week. I was looked after by Chloe and Katie who made the day fly as we chatted about anything and everything. Going in I was excited, coming out I was absolutely delighted!!
Before and After Photos..
These photos were taken after my extensions were applied, both showing the tones under different lights. I wanted to keep my natural colour while adding different tones, length and volume. I'm over the moon with my hair and got exactly what I asked for.
We went with the Hairspray Russian range, using three different tones and Katie applied 120 stands.
A little information about their extensions
All their extensions are keratin bonded, keratin is what our hair is made up of, so that's why they're the best. All their hair extensions are 100% human hair which can be straightened and curled. With their application of either Beautyworks or Hairspray Russian extensions they guarantee a long lasting, flawless application with zero damage to your natural hair.
Grow Unltd use the amazing Kevin Murphy products in their salon, as they are animal cruelty free, paraben and sulphate free, and are made using all natural ingredients such as coconut oil, lavender and ginger extracts etc, they can guarantee with the use of these products that there will be no damage to any of the bonds.
For my hair we opted for the Kevin Murphy plumping wash and rinse. This particular shampoo and conditioner helps to protect damage to give fuller, healthier and stronger hair. A shampoo and conditioner that creates lots of volume
My experience at Grow Unltd..
They are honestly the sweetest bunch of girls with such amazing energy!! They make you feel so welcome as soon as you walk in the door, the salon is the cutest little place with great vibes. The passion they have for their job is incredible and it really shows. They deserve all the success that comes their way!!
Siadbh and Katie are the senior hair extension specialists at Grow Unltd.
I will keep you all updated over the next few months to see how I get on with them. Until then if you have any other questions about these extensions just message me & I will get back to you. So far i'm in love!!
