You really can't tell a difference in the hair indoors, but outside I think it's a bit more noticeable. However, I don't think anybody else would notice unless they knew I was wearing extensions. Even my husband was excited to see me with long hair again and he commented that they matched perfectly and looked real. Thumbs up for the guys' opinions!

So here are some specs from the Hair Secrets website. *affiliate link
20" long = these reach to my lower back
"The same thickness from top to bottom"
"Premium quality Remy human hair" with "same direction cuticles from root to tip" = I think this basically means that the root of the hair is at the top and the ends of the hair are at the bottom, therefore it runs just like your natural hair does. Have you ever taken your fingers and run them up a lock of hair, it just feels unnatural, your hair is supposed to run in a particular direction, and that's how these extensions are designed.
They have a gentle coloring process that takes 8 days so it doesn't ruin the hair.
The Ultimate Volume Set comes with 2 1 clip wefts, 2 2 clips wefts, 2 3 clip wefts, and one 4 clip weft. In general, I clip in these extensions starting with the largest ones at the bottom and working my way up to the single clip wefts nearest to the top of my head. I can also do a demo video if you would like to see how I apply and work with these extensions if anybody's interested.
These extensions shed just like my natural hair does. I don't think it's anything to be worried about.
They are soft and feel like regular hair that has been well taken care of. I see no split ends in them.
They have a very slight taper from the top to the bottom of the hair that looks really natural when applied.
My particular set has a little bit of a natural wave to them, I'm unsure if all of the extensions are like that or if that just happens to have been the natural texture of the individual whose hair this originally was.
I have had these extensions a few weeks now and I will continue to keep you updated if any of my opinions change about them and I'll keep updates on how they last over time.
The clips are sturdy and I haven't had any issues with them so far. I like that the clips say "Hair Secrets" on them and I realize the importance of that if you happen to own several different brands of extensions, this will make it easier to keep track of this set.
I love that they come with a pouch! This pouch is the perfect size for my to slip my hand into and pull the hair extensions through. I love that you can tie the top part up and keep the clips secure to the hair doesn't get stuck in the bag.
The bag opens and closes on both ends.
I really hope this was helpful!
Thanks for reading!
