You know when you try something new and think 'how have I only just discovered this?' and 'how did I live without it?' (okay, maybe a slight exaggeration but you see where I'm going with this). Well, this is exactly how I feel about my amazing new hair extensions from Dirty Looks - the best hair extensions I have EVER used and coming from a girl who has tried a lot, that's a bold statement.

I was contacted by Dirty Looks a little while ago and they asked me if I'd like to try some of their products and as they sell lots of fab hair care as well as HK & Bobby Glam hair extensions, I jumped at the chance. I asked them if it was possible to try the HK 'quad' weft as I was really intreigued by the concept and I'd never tried anything like it before.They informed me they didn't have any of the quad wefts available in my shade but they did have the full head set which includes the quad weft so that's the one they sent me. Its safe to say that since I received these extensions in the post, I haven't sotpped rabbiting on about them to anyone who will listen. Keep reading to find out why I love them so much ...

Packaging
As I'm sure you all know by now, I'm a sucker for pretty packaging. In my opinion, the packaging of a product can make or break it because if it isn't well presented, it isn't appealing. Luckily, Dirty Looks have got it spot on with their packaging and the cute purple box definitely gets the thumbs up from me. I also love that they give you a test piece of hair inside the box to ensure the colour matches before opening the main section of the set. That means if they don't match, you can send them back and get a full refund which is something a lot of hair extension brands don't offer.


Colour
From what I can see on the Dirty Looks website, there's currently 21 colour choices to choose from and unless you've got bright red or pink hair, you should find it fairly easy to match your hair with one of the shades. I also love that they have a few highlighted options as that's great for us ladies that have multi-tonal hair. The shade I was matched with was 'Paparazzi Highlights' (love the name) and its a perfect match for my hair colour - its a light blonde but has slightly darker/golden blonde bits running through it, just like my own hair does. As the shade blends seamlessly into my own hair, they look completely natural too which is a massive bonus.

Length
As my natural hair is pretty long anyway (its usually the same length as 20" extensions), I went for the 20-22" length to ensure they'd be the same length or just a touch longer than my natural hair. This was the perfect length for me as they're just a teeny bit longer than my own hair meaning when I have them in, there's no harsh lines between my real hair and the extensions and instead they work to thicken my hair up and create tonnes of volume which is what I wear extensions for in the first place. Perfect!

Wefts & Clips
The full set of extensions comes with ten wefts of hair in total, one of those being the quad weft which is essentially four wefts sewn together. When you look at it like that, you're actually getting 13 wefts of hair in total and that's the most I've ever come across from a full head of hair extensions. The other wefts included in the set are a mix of 3, 2 and 1 clip pieces and these are ideal for popping in at the sides or for generally adding more volume (not that you need it as the quad weft is thick enough - but I'll talk about that later). I'd also like the mention that the clips feel very secure and when I've clipped the extensions in, (I tend to lightly backcomb the area I'll be placing the clip) they don't move for the rest of the day/night until I take them out. Another thing I was really impressed with is that each weft is labelled and there's a guide available on the Dirty Looks website that tells you where each weft should be placed on the head. I've added it below so you can see - I think this is a great touch and its really handy if you're a hair extension novice!



Quality of the hair
Okay, I can't even stress how amazing the quality of this hair is. Seriously, I could sit here all day and talk about how amazed I am by these extensions and its definitely the quality of them that's won me over. I have to comment on the thickeness of them firstly as they're the thickest extensions I've ever come across and for me, thickening my hair is the reason I wear extensions. However, if you wear extensions for both length and thickness, these are perfect both as the thickness they provide from top to bottom prevents them from looking thin at the ends which is one of the main problems I had when wearing extensions for length in the past. The 20-22" set I received contain 180 grams of human remy hair which is just insane considering most full head extensions I've bought in the past only contain between 100-120 grams. I apologise for the crappy before/after photos above as I realise there doesn't look that much difference between the two due to my natural hair being the same length but trust me, in reality, these make my hair a LOT thicker. I hope you can see how much volume they add to my hair in the photos at the top of the post. 

Styling
As these extensions are made from 100% human remy hair, they can be styled and washed exactly the same as your natural hair. Since receiving my set before Christmas, I've worn them on countless occasions and they're still as good as new. They're exceptionally soft and silky, shiny and so easy to style. My straighteners glide through them with ease and I've experienced no pulling or tugging whatsoever. I've also noticed that they don't seem to 'shed' like lots of other extensions I've tried in the past do. Even after repeated wear, they've remained just as thick as the first day I wore them. I can't fault them one bit.

The star of the show - The HK Quad Weft 
I have to dedicate a section of this post to the quad weft as its totally revolutionised doing my hair and I'm so god damn impressed by it. As I mentioned earlier, the quad weft is four wefts of hair sewn together onto a mesh strip allowing more hair to be worn with fewer clips. That means it will add lots of volume to the hair without the need to add lots of separate wefts and clips which can often feel heavy and bulky on the head. Instead, it feels really light and weightless in my hair considering how thick it is and what I love about it is that it takes a matter of seconds to clip it but totally transforms my hair. I've been wearing it a LOT, even during the day which is unheard of for me as I never normally have the time to clip extensions in on a daily basis. However, with the quad weft, its so quick and easy that I find myself putting it in whenever I want to wear my hair down so it looks much thicker. I also think the quality of the hair is incredible and the hair is thick from top to bottom which is something I've not found with other hair extensions. I've actually bought another quad weft from Dirty Looks since they first sent me the full set as I fell in love with it that much that I wanted another one. As the title of this post states, these extensions are definitely my new obsession. I can't rave about this hair piece enough and its made doing my hair for a night out so much easier. I would always curl my hair before receiving these extensions as I thought they looked more natural but with the quad weft, I can pop it in, straighten my hair and I'm good to go. Its nice to know that I can now wear my hair is various styles and it will look very natural and full regardless.


Price
These extensions aren't the cheapest I've come across but they also aren't the most expensive either and for the quality, they're worth every penny. The full set currently retails for anything between £87.50 and £142.50 depending on which length you go for. However, Dirty Looks currently have a discount across all of the full head sets so you could snap a set up here for anywhere between £69.99 and £124.50. If that's still too pricey, I can't recommend the quad weft enough if you're after some extra thickness. Its currently available for £26.20 here instead of £32.75 and let me tell you, for that price, its too good not to try! Can you tell I'm a fan?

I know lots of you wanted to know about these extensions after seeing various instagram photos of me wearing them so I hope its helped and given you all the information you might need if you're thinking of getting yourself some. A few people have already bought the quad weft after seeing my photos and I've had countless messages saying how impressed they are so is nice to know its not just me who is completely blow away by these extensions! I can't imagine anything else beating them if I'm honest and I'll continue to repurchase them for the foreseeable future.
