Well I’m back, and once again I have something to say about hair. I’m on such a hair kick lately I think because my natural hair is such a scary mess, I refuse to wear it without some help. So after the crochet braid disaster I decided to give clip in’s one more try, and by one more try I really mean ONE more try because I hate clip in extensions more than I hate crooked eyebrows. I decided to put my all in this time, go big or go home right? So I traded in my old Sally Beauty clip in extensions for the famous Bellami clip in’s. If you don’t live under a rock you know what Bellami hair is, and if you don’t then please just go crawl back under whatever rock you came out from underneath. Famous Instagram bloggers such as: Amrezy, MakeupShayla, LillyGhalichi, and many more promote Bellami hair, and give it great reviews. So I decided it was my turn to see what all the fuss was about.
Before I purchased my coveted Bellami hair extensions I did a little research beyond the glamorous Insatgram selfies of our favorite bloggers, and to my surprise I did not find much. I was expecting to find google page after google page of posts, reviews, or YouTube videos but I was way wrong. There were a few good reviews, and a few bad reviews. The bad ones claiming, that after the first wash the hair becomes matted, and tangled. Another one said when she used hot tools on hers without first washing the hair a black residue rubbed off on her irons. I took all of this into consideration and took the plunge.
I went on Bellamihair.com, after searching and searching through all the different sets that varied in length, color and thickness I selected the Bellissima set. The Bellissima set comes with 220 grams of hair at 22 inches in length spread out over 10 wefts. My hair is a color 1b (natural black) but I dye it darker to a 1 so that it appears jet black, so I chose to get my set of extensions in a 1 jet black. After the tedious task of picking my hair, I placed my order and waited, patiently. Ok not so patiently at all, I was practically foaming at the mouth when the tracking app finally told me my extensions were 40 feet away in my mail box.
MY BELLAMI HAIR EXTENSIONS
So after I wiped the drool off my face, I ran to my mailbox and retrieved my package. I opened it and noticed the extensions were well packaged, and even came with a small weft wrapped individually so you could test to make sure the color matched your real hair before you opened the rest, which makes it non-returnable. I opened the rest of the package and immediately noticed how thick the each weft of hair was from root to tip. From former experience this was a major plus because my old extensions were super thin on the bottom, aka they looked like a rat’s tail. The clips the hair was sewn on to were different as well, they were very sturdy and they were black to match the hair color and they laid extremely flat to my head. They were unbelievably soft and didn’t seem to tangle at all at first touch. I have now been wearing these extensions almost every day for several months and as expected they get a little tangled at times but I honestly have zero complaints. They are still soft and shiny, they curl/straighten like new and blend with my hair perfectly. To be perfectly honest I should probably admit that I am so guilty of being a lazy slob. So most nights when I stumble home from work late at night or slightly hammered, whichever, I end up passing out with my extensions still clipped to my head and when I wake up in the morning I look like a chia pet. So given that even after all that mess and abuse my extensions are still in good shape, could you imagine the GREAT shape they could be in if I actually took care of them properly? As I previously stated I hate clip in hair extensions but since I am currently in this hair predicament of mine, they are my best option at the moment, so my final word is: if you want clip in extensions the Bellami Hair Extensions are so worth the pretty penny you’re going to spend on them! They are natural looking, they are long and thick, and they last well, and are durable under the use of a lot of hot tools and alcohol fueled nights. What more could you want from your fake hair? Release your inner Instagram goddess and go order yourself a set of these extensions, I don’t think that you’ll be disappointed, and if you stalk any of the above mentioned Instagram bloggers you can find their discount codes on their pages to get some money off your Bellami Hair Extension purchase. You are very welcome!
