Long Hair Don’t Care

Oh, that’s the dream isn’t it? Long flowing locks of healthy looking hair, hair that everyone is in awe of and compliments you on constantly. My hair does not and never will fit into this category of envy, as it simply does not grow beyond shoulder length. Nothing will help it grow longer it seems. Hairdressers, trims, conditioners, and just leaving it to it’s own devices….. Nothing works to make it grow longer than it is now. And it’s a real shame, because long hair is my dream. Luckily for me though, I found some amazing dip dye red and blonde hair extensions to give me the hair I’ve been yearning for. Thanks Trevor Sorbie!

I thought I’d show a picture of the extensions after a full day of wear with no brushing or styling just so you can see how well they hold up…. Honestly. If I could marry hair, I would marry mine with these babies in. I first got my hands on these Trevor Sorbie colour fusions extensions at TK Maxx. They were £4.99! I bought them thinking they wouldn’t look any good at all and it was a spontaneous purchase. But when I got home and clipped them in I knew I needed more in my life just for back up in case I ever, I dunno, lost these ones?! Unfortunately though, Trevor Sorbie discontinued these a while back and getting your hands on some is like gold dust. Using my initiative though, I sent them a message and luckily they had some old stock left over that they sent out to me! Brilliant! Dreams can come true! My actual hair is the same colour as the extensions but to help them blend in I rinse through a bit of Riche Directions in Pillarbox red to make it match the orangeness of the mid length more. This does mean my dip dye isn’t as bold without the extensions in now, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.

You may remember me posting about the UNQLO x Orla Keily collection a few weeks ago, I got my sneaky mitts on my favourite dress from the range before they sold out; making life a little better. The boots I haven’t had off my feet since getting them! If you win my £70 give away I URGE you to at least try these ones on in your local store and think about buying them!! They’re so comfy!

    I think your hair looks fab Terri! But I know what you mean about envying long hair, mines the same, just does not seem to grow past a certain length no matter what I do! But I did read somewhere that it is in your genes, and some peoples hair does only grow to a certain length and cannot grow any further. I think we may be a little unfortunate with this! 🙁 haha.

    Extensions all the way I think!

    This looks fab!
    I have the same problem wioth my hair, its seriously damaged from over bleaching anf poor care.. But I've been using Tresemme hair protection spray, L'oreal/Evlive nutri-gloss conditioning shine spray & 'lusters pink' oil moisturiser hair lotion & mine has grown longer than its been in 7 years!!!

      I've found a conditioner called Dark and Lovely for afro caribbean hair works a treat! I've been looking after it a lot more recently than previous years. Lusters pink oil moisturiser sounds interesting though!

    Oooh they sent you some more! Yay, you look lovely! xx

    • October 15, 2012 / 8:46 pm

      Haha, that they did! Now I won't be as paranoid about them all day! xx

    I love how these look! I'm in the same boat as you, my hair won't grow as long as I want it at all – I've been making attempts for nearly two years now and it's still sulking around my shoulders. I've been eyeing extensions for the longest time, just for when I want to actually be able to play around with my hair a bit! You've inspired me to get on it and try it out. 🙂

      They're really worth looking into, I have some auburn ones too which are great for mixing styles up a bit as without extensions my hair always looks the same! No matter what I do!

    Your hair looks beautiful. I love the colors. I've been thinking of doing this but in pink. 🙂

    • October 15, 2012 / 8:45 pm

      Red and pink or another colour and pink? Would look nice either way I reckon!

    You had long blonde hair to your bottom when you were younger, alas you dyed it blue black then had it amputated !

      I thought this was some weird creepy stalker then, but HI MUM.

    Your hair looks fab, you can't even tell that you have extensions in at all! I love your dress too, so cute! xx

    • October 15, 2012 / 8:44 pm

      I love it! My favourite dress ever!

  14. October 14, 2012 / 9:18 pm

    Oh I really like how this looks on you!

    • October 15, 2012 / 8:44 pm

      Thank you 🙂

    Those extensions look lovely!
    I would recommend Lee Staffords 'for hair that never grows past a certain length hair mask, I always find it makes my hair grow really fast and longer than it usually would.

    Also, totally adore that dress. I'm a big fan of Orla Keily as well along with a good old peter pan collar.

      I saw that but when I read reviews they just said it was a really strong conditioner so it put me off… Might do a bit more research though, thanks for the recommendation!
