Why Luxy? I chose Luxy because they ship out of the US. I didn't want to pay for international shipping, nor did I want to wait for them if they got stuck in customs. I was considering FoxyLocks, but I wanted them ASAP! Also, they are pretty popular on YouTube and I wanted to try them out for myself.
Why clip-ins? I've never had extensions before nor do I have the money to pay a hair stylist to put in extensions. It can be hundreds of dollars each trip to the salon and I'm a student, so clip-ins just make sense. Here are some of the pros and cons of clip-ins...
- easy to insert
- cheapest form of hair extensions
- can be taken in and out at users discression
- must be applied everyday. Sleeping in them wouldn't be comfortable
- hard to wash
- clips can be uncomfortable
- wefts can be very hard to hide if you have thin hair
The 160g is WAY too much hair for me, but I would recommend it to everyone. More is better. If you're going to buy it, you might as well buy a few wefts you're not going to use so that you have extras so if one gets ruined, you're not out of luck.
I purchased some hair color to color the lower portion of my hair extensions. I haven't decided if I'm going to color them or get my hair redone and get a full foil. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Here are some pictures below. Let me know what you think!
The verdict: Would I buy them again? No. I think I would just go to Sally's and pick out some from there. I think the Luxy extensions are a bit expensive and buying from the internet is tricky. Would I recommend them? Yes and no. If your hair is ONE solid color it would be a lot easier to purchase on the internet. Other than that, no. Luxy doesn't have many colors to choose from. I'm happy with what I got, but I don't feel the need to purchase them from Luxy again. Definitely no if you have thin hair in the back of your head like me. It's really hard to hide the wefts.
Plus: If you're going to get clip-ins, factor in the cost of getting them cut. They will need to be cut in order to blend seamlessly into your hair!
