Headkandy Hair Extensions

Hey Beauts,

Today I wanna talk to you guys about Headkandy Hair Extensions. I have always been envious of Kim Kardashian's flowing locks but can never be bothered with the upkeep of long hair! So I decided to invest in some hair extensions - that way when I can't be bothered with all the styling I just simply don't put them in. I spent hours researching hair extensions online as I wanted to make sure that I was getting value for money, and the majority of the time Headkandy Hair Extensions came out on top - so naturally I went with the majority. I ended up going for the 20-22" Melted Chocolate hair extensions.

The Facts
*They are made from 100% Remy Human Hair which means that the hairs have been specially selected and are 'sewn onto the weft in the same direction of natural hair growth' (taken from Headkandy's website). As a result you are left with soft, silky, and tangle free hair extensions *
*Each weft is made up of multi tones which means that the extensions blend in a lot better with your natural hair*
*You get 180grams worth of hair extensions when you buy the 20-22" set (it's different for other lengths, so check out their website here)*
*They retail at £79.99 for the 20-22" hair extensions (please check their website for other lengths/prices here)*
*As with many online hair extension companies you can send Headkandy a photo and they will pick out the best shade of extensions for your hair (I did not do this as I was pretty confident that I was Melted Chocolate)*

In the Box
*It comes in a snazzy little black box which is substantial enough for you to store your hair extensions in when not in use*
*The hair is placed into two compartments - the smaller one is so that you can take the hair out and check the length/colour against your natural hair. That way if is not the right one you can send it back without any qualms*
*You also get a little booklet which includes advice on how to clip in, take care of, and dye your new hair extensions*
In the box

How to Clip in Headkandy Hair Extensions

Each weft is cleverly numbered which I love as it makes for easy application, especially if you use that in conjunction with the instructions found in the booklet or online (please see below).

When I was a newbie to hair extensions I did follow the instructions step by step, but I actually found that there was far too much hair! So now I just play around with the wefts every time I wear them. For example, if I don't have much time I'll just put four of the longer wefts in the back of my hair, and then just add one clipped weft on either side of my head. I always back comb each section of hair that will be holding a weft as it gives the clip something to grab hold of and it makes sure that it stays in place all day. I have added a before and after picture below - just so you guys are aware in the after picture I am wearing all of the wefts.


*If I want to achieve a bedhead/curly effect then I use my Babyliss Pro Curl 210 (£18.49 from Boots). Make sure not to clamp the hair extensions against the barrel and instead use your fingers to hold it in place as otherwise you create a kink which is REALLY difficult to get out*
*I find that the extensions hold their curls for around 5-6hours and then start to drop, but even after wearing them for a whole day the curls still look good*
*When I want straight hair I simply use my GHDs to straighten my natural hair and the extensions separately*

*Always, always, ALWAYS use a heat protection spray on your hair extensions as this will keep them looking silky smooth for longer - nobody likes hair extensions with frazzled ends!*
*Make sure that you shampoo and condition your hair extensions regularly. The amount you wash them depends on how many times you wear them e.g. I probably wear my extensions between 2-3 times a week so I wash them every other week or so, whereas someone who wears them daily should wash them once a week. I use the Love Hair Extensions range*
*I also use a daily conditioning spray on my hair extensions which again are from the Love Hair Extensions range*

The Verdict
*I received my Headkandy hair extensions super fast as they came a day after I ordered them*
*I am really impressed with the quality and thickness of the hair extensions - they are just so silky and soft!*
*They are a great purchase if you are newbie to hair extensions because they have the numbers stitched into the top of the wefts and instructions*
*When I use my Babyliss Pro Curl 210 the curls hold for around 5-6 hours so I'm pretty impressed with that*
*I have had my hair extensions for 3months now and they are still in great condition*
*Headkandy suggests that you have wefts 5-10 layered and shaped so that they blend in more with your natural hair. I haven't actually done this yet, but when I get more money I think I will get this done as you can slightly tell where my natural hair ends and the extensions begin, especially when I wear my hair straight*
*They are really comfortable to wear even if you are wearing them for the whole day*
*I would definitely recommend Headkandy Hair Extensions to a friend as they are comfortable, thick, silky smooth, and keep their shine*

What are your favourite hair extensions?


  1. Hello. I am trying to decide on length and color. My hair looks different shades in different types of light. So I am really confussed as to what I should do.

  2. If you send in a few photos of your hair in natural light to headkandy hair extensions they choose a colour for you x

  3. There are plenty of different clip in options which means it is very easy to achieve the look you’re going for – whether it’s for one night or something you plan to add to your look for a while.
