I'm 30 and just got 20 inch extensions but can't help feel they too long and too draining's this length it too long?

I think they are, sorry.

I love them, though could never have them myself as I like being able to brush/play with my hair vigorously - couldn't stand the feel of something attached to my head! I don't think they're too long, though hard to judge if we don't see them on your own head - everyone looks different!

Clip ins are ok if the colour matches perfectly. I do think just past the shoulders is as long as I'd go though. Maybe get them trimmed

These are mini lock extensions.
I paid £440 for them blush but I just wish I had gone for a bit shorter.

They seem really really dry
And think they were a bit over priced now tbh

I think at your age, they are fine. They are a fashion item and you are young enough to do that.

They are fine if done properly. You will get used to it - try some different styles etc to add shape before you chop them

Gee that's a lot

I think they can sometimes look a bit wiggy if they're overly dry and straight. The ones that are glued in can look really bad sometimes. On the other hand I used to know a girl who had glorious long red hair, it was years before I found out they were extensions. She paid a fortune for them, over £1k, but her hair was beautiful.

They haven't been styled have they?

Whatdowedo Sun 14-Aug-16 16:00:51

They are so tatty too.
I bought the shampoo and conditioner from the salon and they still Matt together

Whatdowedo Sun 14-Aug-16 16:01:38

I don't know how to style them really as they are so dry.
I don't know how to make them look better

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 14-Aug-16 16:02:05

I don't like extensions of any length tbh.

What brand are they?

Whatdowedo Sun 14-Aug-16 16:03:11

This is what is on their website that too mine

Whatdowedo Sun 14-Aug-16 16:03:49

They are meant to be human Russian hair
She said easilocks
But I don't think they are by how tatty

Pisssssedofff Sun 14-Aug-16 16:04:45

Did you pay on your credit card ?

Myusername2015 Sun 14-Aug-16 16:04:56

Whatwedo; they shouldn't be dry. I've just had mine out after a year or so of wearing them...mainly as I couldn't face how long it took to wash my hair! However the hair was always silky smooth when first put in; after a month or two it started to dry as it doesn't get moisture from the head like normal hair. I can recommend the Aussie deep moisturising conditioner; slather it on. However if I was you I would be going back to the salon; that doesn't sound like they've given you decent hair.

Whatdowedo Sun 14-Aug-16 16:04:58

Better picture

Whatdowedo Sun 14-Aug-16 16:05:43

No I paid in cash
Yeah I'm using the Aussie 3 min miracle
Even after the first time I washed it
It was so dry and tatty

EweAreHere Sun 14-Aug-16 16:06:31

Personally, yes. I don't get them at all.

Pisssssedofff Sun 14-Aug-16 16:09:13

Oh shit. You need to go down to the salon demand to see the packing, order forms whatever to prove what Extentions they've used and get your money back, threaten small claims court etc. I don't believe for a moment they are easy locks

Myusername2015 Sun 14-Aug-16 16:10:17

Even if you paid in cash you need to complain big time or threaten trading standards....there is no way at nearly £500 they should be dry and tacky already. Do you know what grade hair they used?
