Ohh bad hair extensions are so disappointing, I know how you feel. I cant comment on the brand as I am in Australia and we dont have ‘She’ extensions…

Firstly. if they look ‘piecey’ that could be poor application. I would go back to where she applied and blended them and tell her youre not happy with them. If you are uncomfortable going back, go to another stylist and ask them to help you. They might be able to do a bit more blending. If youre anything like me, you wont be able to stick it out for a few days, let alone a month!!

As for the dryness, all hair extensions get dry eventually – however – they certainly shouldnt be dry this soon!

If you only had them applied on Friday they should be silky and smooth and if anything, even shinier than your own hair. So you could certainly complain to the manufacturer about this. Alternatively as a quick fix, and in future, do not use shampoo on the ends of your extensions!! Or on the ends of your hair in general. You should only use conditioner on the ends and shampoo on the roots (this little tip changed my life). And if you want to attempt to get some moisture back in the ends of the extensions, apply some conditioner on the ends and leave for at least 20 mins! Then wash out.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

I got Great Lengths human hair extensions for my wedding and loved them. I did a ton of research on the stylist and they stayed looking and feeling better than my own hair for 5 months. I have naturally very thin very fine hair and got 16″ added for length and volume. I think you get what you pay for though in hair extensions- mine were pretty expensive.

Sorry that you’re having that issue! When I had extensions once I had to condition then very well for them to stay soft and smooth.  I tried not to put too much spray on them so I wouldn’t need to shampoo them as often. I hope that helps!

How did she apply them?

I had human hair extensions sewn into my braided hair. What’s called a weave, lol. It was itchy but they looked super natural. I went to a hair store in the city and they had tons of colors, lengths, and textures of high-quality human hair extension wefts.

I went to an African American hair salon and it was like $20 to get them taken out.

I’m Asian by the way.
