- Use a measuring cup or whatever and get the mixing ratio right! I eyeballed it when I mixed the developer & powder together, and think I made the mixture too strong.
- I opted to not cover the extensions in foil, just a layer on bottom. This way I could see how much the hair was lightening and run screaming to the bathroom when I realized it was getting too light.
- Wear gloves. I didn't, but you should. Safety first kids.
- Speaking of safety, turn off any fans or air conditioners in the room. Powdered bleach in your eyes isn't fun!
- As you bleach, the lightening you see is deceptive. The hair will actually turn out a little lighter once you wash & dry them, so keep that in mind.
- These extensions have blunt ends vs naturally tapered ends like other brands have. I prefer blunt ends, and loved that I didn't have to take them to a salon to get trimmed! Bonus!
- They smelled so. frickin. GOOD out of the package! No weird chemical/corn chip/whatever smell.
- They're shiny (in a natural way), and match my texture really well. If I wanted to airdry my hair and use these to have a huge, crazy, lion-style mane, I totally could.
- They straighten out really nicely!
