I feel like my hair has been taking forever to grow and when its time for a trim I am taking so much off to keep my ends healthy at each visit. Maybe its the cold weather or something else that causes my ends to be so dry, who knows. What I do know is that I am ready for some length. When I started looking online and diving into the world of hair extensions, I quickly found that there are far too many to chose from.
What kind of hair? What length? Synthetic or Real? Remy A, B or C?
When I looked at the individual clip extensions I sorta came to the conclusion that with the thickness of my hair that one package may not be enough which was a little discouraging. After a while I came across the EasiHair line by John Renau and thought this would be the perfect place for a “newbie” to start.
As part of the EasiHair line there are several different hair options. After going over the site I decided that the EasiVolume 18″ was the best option for me. When you go to the site you notice that this product comes in an HD version (heat defiant synthetic) or Remy Hair (real high grade) I went with the real hair because the life of the product seems to last longer.
Knowing which color to choose is the hardest part. I chose shade 6 but when I got it I realized it was a couple notches darker than my hair. I died my hair to match using the John Frieda Precision Hair Color box in 3N. This is the same product and shade I reviewed for you here. This color was a perfect match for the EasiHair shade 6.
The EasiVolume by John Renau isn t necessarily the best option to extend your hair on its own. Its a one piece thick extension that wraps almost all the way around my head except for the sides. But because the hair piece is so much longer and my hair is so thick it doesn’t blend well on its own. So if you are thinking about getting this product get a length close to your own hair or be prepared to add additional extensions. Since learning this I have already ordered another package so I can make it work.
I orderd the HD EasiXtend this time around in the synthetic hair. Once I get those I will compare the two- But until then here is the EasiVolume 18″ in my hair
UPDATE- 01/20/2-13- I just wanted to update you on the Easi Volume since I have now used it for almost a year. I love this hair piece still. After washing it is so silky soft. Same as taking it right out of the package. The only downside is that after a few months the color started to fade a bit. But re dying it is simple and it picks up color nicely. Because all the hair is on one piece it does make it a little bit hard to wear alone because of the difference in lengths. The synthetic pieces I talked about here are needing to be replaced at this point but I plan to look at a different brand all together. I ordered some new hair I will share details about shortly. But I still plan to use the new pieces with this EasiVolume as well.
