Product Review: Dolled Up Hair Extensions

If you've visited my blog before you may have noticed my new profile picture, it's the photo from this post that I liked so much that I decided to use it for my blog identity pic. My eight year old sister is a surprisingly good photographer, she made me stand in the best light and everything. 

Anyway, following the relaunch of the Dolled Up site their team ran a campaign to find bloggers that would be interested in reviewing their hair pieces. I spotted their ad on Twitter and asked if I could help them out, they said yes and since then I have been happily enjoying theses rather delightful hair extensions.

The bloggers involved, me included, were given a choice of hair piece and because I'd never tried clip-in extensions I decided to go for some of those in their ash blonde shade. On the site they are down as 'Full Head Curly Heat Resistant Synthetic Hair Extensions' and cost £22.99 which to be honest is a deal considering the quality of the extensions. As I mentioned, this was the first ever set of clip in extensions that I've ever tried so I didn't really have any expectations but I was pleasantly surprised. 

Dolled Up sells a wide range of hair pieces, including these clip in extensions, in various shades. The ash blonde shade actually blends in really well with my natural colour and whilst my hair is growing out a honey sort of shade right now, I still found that the clip ins managed to make the whole look seem more natural.

If I'm being honest I think I would prefer a set of human hair extensions rather than the synthetic set but that's because the synthetic set is a very glossy and shiny texture so it's a bit more difficult to blend in with my own hair. It can be done, it just takes quite a bit of effort. The actual application of the extensions is very quick and easy, I simply just sectioned off my hair, opened up the clips and gradually clipped in each piece. It impressed me how easy it was to secure them because they didn't fall out or really loosen throughout the day.

I really like the way they look, they are just the right thickness and density for my hair type so they don't look daft or too thick/thin at the ends. That was a concern for me because my hair has a weird natural texture and I don't usually find pieces that match so easily which is why I hadn't tried clip in extensions before these.

I just want to say that this review is completely honest and I seriously wouldn't put out a false opinion, I do genuinely love these extensions. They're well worth the £22.99!
