Hair Extensions DIY

I’ve worn hair extensions for a good 3/4 years now. I started with your basic clip ins, I then discovered Halo extensions, then nano loops, then micro loops but now I wear what I like to call a Micro Weave. 

After being bored of micro loops and them knotting my hair after they had been taken out, I decided to try and find some new hair extensions. The only extensions I could find that I hadn’t tried were Easi Locks, which costed more than what I wanted to pay. I had a sudden rush of imagination, what if I combined micro loops with my clip ins. Instead of using clips I had the idea of using the micro loops. I’ve now been wearing my ‘Micro Weave’ for 3 months now. They are the best extensions I’ve worn, I can create the thickness I want, they are cheap to buy and easy to put in and take out if I wanted to. 

I went down to my local hair extension shop (GiGi’s) they matched my hair colour and picked out the length that I wanted (14″ to look more natural). The colour matched perfectly to my hair, as I was only purchasing the hair alone it came to under £30 – Real human Indian remy hair extensions. I ordered the micro bonds online and they were no more than £3 including delivery. I wear three rows in my hair, each row has double thickness. The only difficulty with these hair extensions is sewing on the micro loops to the hair – This does take time but once this is done, inserting the hair extensions is quick and easy. I would love to one day be able to make the extensions and sell them on, I have looked online and haven’t been able to find any ready-made ‘Micro Weaves’. If anyone does locate these, I’d love to hear about it, because it would save me the effort of sewing them on!;) 

My hair was in very poor condition due to bleaching my hair, after applying coconut oil to it once or twice a week it was like my hair was reborn. I still apply hair masks to my hair as often as I can, as the extensions don’t slip about, I can apply deep conditioning masks to my hair without having to worry that they will become loose.

Until next time,
