Where can I buy reputable human hair extensions?
So a few people have been asking where to get extensions from, so I thought I'd create this so we can add websites we've seen and tried to create a bit of a one stop directory Smiley
(great value, you have to replace them a bit more often though)http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/150574607694?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649#ht_1994wt_814http://www.lovehairextensions.com/http://www.pauls-hair-world.co.uk/

How do I maintain my extentions?
So after a month or two of not looking after my hair extensions very well at all, they were looking pretty thin.
In fact this is how thin they were looking (this is all my hair pushed forward, none at the back)
So, what I did was ordered a new set, dyed them up and took off the clips from both sets. I had ordered some new bigger clips to hold the weight of the hair, as the small generic ones can pull a lot more on your natural hair.
When all the clips were off, I pinned the two wefts together and zig zag stitched them on a machine. You could do this by hand if you want, just takes a little longer. If you do do it on the machine, let the wefts sit where they like. You'll end up with them sort of sat next to each other, rather than piled up. This is better as it means they won't stick out so much.
When that's done, all you need to do is hand stitch the new clips on, starting with one on the left, then one on the right, then one in the middle. Add more if you need them. If you start at the left and work your way across, chances are that they won't be even.
Sooo now you have double the amount of hair to play with!! Yaaaay looks loads better
Now my hair is like this:
Hair at the front....
And hair at the back!!
And pushed forward:
Ignore the fact I need to touch up the dye on the ends of my natural hair haha
Hope that helps someone just proves you don't need to pay they stupid prices for double weft pieces! I've seen them go for £50 a weft, and that's just standard hair! MADNESS!How to store your hairhttp://www.hairdyeforum.com/index.php?topic=7883.0how to make your own extensions!!
