Do you like them? Are they hard work? Any information would be appreciated ☺️

I love my weave, I only have it to thicken so get the ends cut to the length of my own hair. I spent most of my adult life doing things with my hair to make it appear thicker before I discovered it's cheaper to just apply more hair and have it thicker.
The lady that does mine weaves four cornrows across my head with extension hair woven into them too, then stitches the wefts across twice on each row. Because there are no adhesives involved and it's human hair you can use what products you normally would and style as normal.
They are supposed to last about five or six weeks but I always leave mine longer.

I have a weft clipped in with micro rings, only for thickness not length. It's best to buy the best quality hair, usually Remy with the cuticles aligned. Poor quality hair will tangle and look scruffy very quickly.

Does it feel weird when they're in??

At first mine did feel strange, I kept pulling it into a ponytail in my hands because I'd never had a decent handful of hair before. I brush my hair less during the day now because my very thin hair had no weight and needed brushing more often so I can usually go without washing every other day now, I think brushing stimulated the oil.
I love the feeling it makes me feel more confident.

Thank you!!! I'm so tempted 😂

I do - I have nano rings and get them refitted about every three months. One set of decent hair can last for up to two refits for me - but I start pretty long and it was weird to get used to. Bear in mind, you'll likely feel super hot at the beginning due to the extra hair, but I love the way it looks.
