"Hi! I got my all in one hair extension from Fortune Wigs. I must say it is a dream. I've gone swimming in the Mexico ocean with it, have been in windy situations and have danced the night away in it. It has stayed on and feels so comfortable…"
"Marian, I googled the Vive Le Hair system and it looks like a really good option- but I'm not in Canada :-(
femmemuscle, wow- that is a big reality check for extensions, it is so hard to decide which way to go with this stupid FFA and I am very…"
"I have had extensions for a few months now and they have bulked up my hair but am going to go Lori's route and do some side glue ins. The place that does my extensions have just launched a new product and i am glad there will be another option…"
"I did extensions. "Monkey Barrz", "Great Length" - aka Glue in types.
I've the sew-in types, the micro-rings, the braid in as well as Glue-in tracks.
My natural hair, over time, began to weaken due to the extra weight not…"
"Eh, I've thought about this,. I'm I think they cost too much and at the end of the day you have to take it off anyway...I rather just wear a scarf... Its cheaper...and that way I don't feel like I'm lying."
"Yeah, these hot flashes do my hair absolutely no favors with the damp/sweaty hairline that comes out of nowhere, ugh! I was/am so worried about getting overheated with additional hair on my head, sigh.
I just turned 52, looking back, I think…"
"OMG no problem... and I am SO with you on the hot flashes... I am 45 but I swear they are starting... I sit in my office and out of nowhere I feel like this flood of heat comes over me... I have a fan running one minute and my mini-heater running…"
"Oh wow, thanks for the great info Lo! I vaguely knew about tapes, but to be honest I always thought it would be something that would have to be done daily, I had no idea it would last so long! That is great to know, as I work out and go cycling and…"
"Lo, what kind of tape do you buy, and where do you buy it. I have never used tape that would allow me to wear it more than a few days. I never have tried to wash my hair with it in either. Thanks. (You can private message me with your answer if you…"
"Hey, Minter! I don't mind answering your questions one bit! Ask away.
I didn't like the glue extensions b/c of the fact that it was glue - on my hair... and it seems they fell out easier than the "loop" ones I have…"
"I think it is great that you went ahead and did this. My topper maker does the extensions and I have seen some of the pieces she has done. She says they must be tightened about every six to eight weeks. We decided they would be too hard on my scalp…"
"Yes, if the FFA stopped right now, this very minute, I could just barely get away with my own hair- but it has definitely thinned at the crown too, well in general it just looks thinner along with my missing hairline!
