Hair thinning is not a pretty side effect of the post-partum experience. I had actually never heard about it until three months after having my first son when I started noticing extra strands of hair in my brush, then fists full and by the 4th month if felt like I had lost enough to make a wig!
I took vitamins and even cut it short hoping it would grow back fuller, but just looked like a wispy bob and as a mom with limited time, the last thing I wanted to do was blow out a bob every morning.
I started getting extensions to fill in the fullness, I’ve always liked my hair out of my face in a messy bun or braid. I had been doing the microlink extensions for the past few years but I noticed damage when I would take them out.
After stopping into Studio A Salon a few months ago for a quick blowout before a party, Yesenia Garcia, one of the head stylists, recommended the Hair Talk tape-ins. Hairtalk is a highly innovative hair extension line that provides a beautiful and natural look without damage to your hair or hours of your time spent at the salon. She and the owner David had attended numerous hours of training and I was impressed with her knowledge and confidence in them.
I had tried other tape-ins before and didn’t like how heavy they felt and how they became obvious after a couple weeks of hair growth. Hair Talk even makes a thinner version for fine hair like mine. They also have updated the look so that the hair covers the taped adhesive so that it blends perfectly. This new method uses 100% human hair and doesn’t involve glue, beads, wefts, braiding or weaving. These hair extensions have been created to stay in and protect the hair.
I wasn’t expecting to love them as much as I do! I knew it would be a nice change for my hair but the ease and comfort is amazing, I have been getting so many compliments and have no problem telling people they are extensions….Fake hair, don’t care! If you are interested in extensions, I would highly recommend Studio A Salon, let Yesenia take care of you! Ps., Mention West University Moms and receive 20% off first-time services with Yesenia!
