Supermodel Hair Extensions Review

Supermodel hair extensions, £49.99, Supermodelhair.com

WHAT IS IT? Clip-on hairpieces that add thickness and length — a favourite with celebs. Made from human hair, there are 14 shades so you can match your natural colour. Can also be dyed for a perfect match.

WHAT YOU DO: Backcomb the roots of a section of your hair and insert the clip. Repeat to achieve as much volume as you’d like. It sounds complicated but was so simple that it took me less than a minute to complete my new look.

RESULTS: The difference was so amazing that it made me bewail my naturally thin hair. The hair extensions gave an instant boost to my looks, but were also natural looking, easy to use and stayed secure. The colour was slightly different to my natural hair, but the lighter tones just added depth and body. No one noticed the clips. Catwalk here I come . . .
SCORE: 5/5

Hair Extensions Maintenance Tips

Here are some tips and information on maintaining your hair extensions to use your hair extensions to their full potential.

Heat (Straighteners, Tongs etc.)
Even with 100% human hair, you can’t use too much heat. The hair (like your own) will react to too much heat, applying too much heat to your own hair could cause a brittle and dry look, so this could happen to human hair extensions. It is always advise to pre treat the hair extensions using a heat protective product design for hair extensions, this will stop the heat damage and maintain the healthy look.

Aftercare Products
Aftercare products are great for giving hair extensions a prolonged life, keeping them soft and healthy looking. However using too many different products can have an adverse effect, as the aftercare could react with each other. Only use the recommended products and quantity.

Brushing
Excessive brushing of your hair extensions can do more harm than good as you risk weakening bonds or the attachment, causing future shedding or hair loss. The advised frequency of brushing is 1 – 2 times a day using a hair extension brush.

Shapeless Styles
Your hair is shapeless and impossible to get the desired style, in this instance it is usually down to application. In which case could be due to lack of training.

• The Extension hairstyle has not been planned properly
• The stylist has chosen the wrong texture of extension hair
• The hair extensions are more than double the length of the natural hair
