Today I got hair extensions! I have hated my hair for many years, as despite it being in great condition as I look after it, it never seems to grow and is just so thin.
Today I took the plunge and had a full head of European hair micro link/loop hair extensions called Perfectress Transformation Connections done at Sibs Salon Sidcup by Den.
Sibs is a lovely and very busy hair salon located on a parade of shops in Sidcup, quite near Bexleyheath. Handily there is plenty of free parking outside which is brilliant as I used to have to park in a council car park at my old hairdressers which was a right nightmare.
First I had an all over tint as my hair had faded and the roots needed doing, then my hair was washed, conditioned and then a clarifying shampoo used, and then my hair was blow dried then straightened. I was offered drinks and magazines at very regular intervals throughout the whole day and noticed that when one of the girls wasn’t working and the junior was busy everyone went about cleaning up any stations that had capes or products left or swept the floor, I found this very professional as the salon remained pretty much spotless throughout the entire day which was amazing as they were so busy, I cannot actually remember the last time I have been to a salon so busy, especially in the recession so I think this is definitely another indicator that the salon is good.
My extensions were put in by Den who is Sibs’ sister. Den specialises in extensions and she certainly made it all look very easy, even though I imagine it to be a tiring and fiddly job to have to do for hours on end. You can see her page on the website here Hair Extensions
Tonight is my first night with them in and to be honest my head hurts a little, it’s a bit weird getting used to so many little extensions on my head! I bought some Nioxin shampoo and a tangle teaser brush to look after the extensions so I will review those after I have used them a bit, as I can’t wash my hair now until Monday evening.
If you have any questions please do let me know, I will try and update with how I am getting along in a week or so.
Do you have hair extensions?
Edited to add – these turned out to be a nightmare and ripped my hair out. AVOID!
