People laughed when I said I wanted to get hair extensions. With hair grazing my waist, it seems like a ridiculous idea, but for months, I’ve longed for a weave to pull off intricate braids and a Victoria’s Secret-worthy mane of waves. My dream finally came true when Irresistible Me reached out to me to test out and feature a pair of natural Remy hair extensions on my blog. I jumped at the chance and ordered the Royal Remy Hair Extensions in shade #14 Royal Golden Blonde. Here is my review of the Irresitible Me extensions, or you can scroll down to a YouTube video featuring the hair extensions in action!
Shipping & Customer Service
My package from Irresistible Me came in a couple days via FedEx. I followed the tracking number and was pleased to see that they made it from overseas to Canada in only 2 days, and I picked them up from my FedEx location because I missed the doorbell (whoops). I didn’t get any duty fees either, but that is always a hit or miss. The black cardboard box was a little crushed by the shipping, but the contents were perfectly fine inside. I liked the simple packaging, because I plan on keeping my extensions in a fabric makeup pouch anyways. My main complaint was that the extensions were tied together with a rubber elastic band right at the top of the weft, which caused a crease that needed to be flat-ironed out. In the future, I think using a ribbon elastic would be better, and the company could even brand it with their logo printed on!
Irresistible Me Hair Quality
WOW! What can I say… these extensions are soooo silky soft and thick. I ordered the 24″ length which came with 200g of hair in 10 pieces. The set was as follows: 1 large four-clip piece, 2 large three-clip pieces, 5 small two-clip pieces, and 2 small one-clip pieces. This offered PLENTY of hair, and I usually only put in 4-6 pieces into my head, otherwise it gets too full and heavy, and my hair isn’t thick enough to cover all the pieces. My mom is already begging me to borrow the few pieces I don’t use from the package to get cut and use in her own head!
Royal Remy means that the hair is coming from one single person, which ensures that the hair thickness is consistent! The quality is unsurpassed and is as close as you can get to unprocessed hair. This is important for me, because I have virgin hair and wanted pieces that felt soft and super natural.
The wefts are sewn on very carefully, and the clips seem very sturdy. The package also came with a few extra clips in case the sewing comes undone which is nice! The piece with four clips has a thicker lace part as well.
Irresistible Me Royal Remy #14 Golden Blonde
The most important part for me when ordering extensions was colour matching. I ordered the #14 shade in Golden Blonde which had many tones of platinum and dark brown mixed in. Compared to my synthetic bangs (which I bought as a joke), these are so toned and blended. I found the colour to be a great match for natural blondes, but it lacked a bit of the red/strawberry tones in my natural hair colour. Once I brushed them through and curled the hair though, they were very undetectable! I would definitely recommend this shade for natural or strawberry blondes as it had beautiful tones!
All in all, I’m very happy with my extensions. The price is right – $319 for the 24″ Royal Remy extensions or only $219 for the 24″ Silky Touch extensions! In comparison to other companies out there, they offered many natural colour options for blondes and brunettes. The Royal Remy extensions are sooo luxurious and I can’t wait to style them for holiday parties or on vacation.
