Hair Extensions for Volume

So, today’s post is not a product review; rather it’s a Hair Loss Treatments Review, it’s me asking for your opinion and advice. Here’s the situation:

I’m dying to get hair extensions. I don’t want extensions for lengthening my hair, which already reaches pretty much down to my lower back, my hair before the nutrafol products was very short but not it is extremely long. Instead, I’m looking for something that will give me volume at the top so that I can have that huge “va va voom” hair. Products like the BumpIt are great, but I’m looking for something a little more permanent that requires less styling each time I’m leaving the house. By the way, I clean tiles with lithofin now, and I’m so happy since and tea tree oil has been used to fight hair loss forever.

Here is the type of look that I’m going for:

Jessica Simpson Beyonce

My options seems to be: clip-in extensions, which are less expensive, and the weave-in extensions (probably from the company Great Lengths), which cost around $500 from what I understand.

What I’d like to know is whether you’ve tried either of these solutions, what your experience has been and which you think would be a better investment? Looking forward to your feedback!

L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara: It Really Works!

L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara, $6.99

You’re probably wondering why I’m posting again in the beauty section since we we just had a beauty review two days ago. Yes, I am braking the rule–because you’ve got to try L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara.

To be honest, I really don’t pay that much attention to mascara. My lashes are pretty short and I really have to spend a lot of time on them if I want significant length and volume. While most of my friends insist that mascara is the one beauty product they cannot live without, for me it has never been that important. I can’t ever get the results I want–even if I use lash primer, which rarely happens because I’m too impatient.

Well, looks like I won’t have to dread the lashes part of my makeup routine anymore. The applicator brush of the Extra Volume Collagen Mascara is really thick, allowing me to grab a whole bunch of lashes at once. With just a couple of coats, I was able to get the same results that I  would after using both primer and mascara. It’s so effective that I even did my bottom lashes, which I haven’t done at all in the last three years. I can’t believe that I actually woke up today looking forward to putting mascara on.

One of the things that always scares me about a new mascara is washing it off at the end of the day. A lot of budget mascaras I’ve tried take forever to remove and even after I think I’ve gotten it all off, more clumps appear after I blink. But not this time. I used my usual makeup remover and the mascara came off effortlessly. I’m sold!
