Today’s thoughts are on one of my Christmas presents, a set of Foxylocks Caramel Blonde #20 Deluxe 20″ Clip In Hair Extensions I received from Mark. I’ve had a lot of hair extensions in my time, but Foxylocks were the first brand I ever wore years ago, so I was curious as to whether the quality would still be there and what they would be like now.
Initially I meant to post this review 4 weeks ago, but with Christmas, then New Year, my Birthday and other things, I just put it off and then, made my hair lighter and its too light for these extensions! Still, I’m basing this review on lots of different factors and plenty of wear too!
Here is some information about the Foxylocks Caramel Blonde #20 Deluxe 20″ Clip In Hair Extensions… Transform flat, lifeless hair into voluminous, long gorgeous locks! 100% Remy silky smooth tangle free human hair.
The weight of these stunning hair extensions is 165 grams!
I’d been wanting a set of clip in hair extensions again for a while, for those times I wasn’t wearing my tape ins and could take them out when I felt like. I love clip ins as I find them very diverse, I can do a lot with them and it literally takes me only a few minutes to clip a whole set in, so the transformation is really fast. I decided to go with Foxylocks again as my first set, all be it coloured a few times and worn to death lasted me in the region of 8 months! Now, when you colour hair extensions a few times, wear them constantly and abuse them like I did, 8 months wear is pretty impressive. Also, not one of my clips broke on them or came off which again I felt was great. The condition of the hair was still soft and in honesty they are probably one of the best sets I’ve ever owned. So, when I asked Mark for extensions at Christmas those are the reasons I chose them. I went with a 165g set again as my hairs medium thickness and shoulder length. Last time I found this was adequate and in honesty I don’t like to wear too much hair as it can give me a headache. As it was over Christmas we had to do next day delivery, but they did arrive next day and as always service was really good.
The #20 Caramel Blonde extensions I would describe as a warm/golden medium (About a base 8) shade blonde. They are multi tonal, so not flat in colour and will blend quite well with a few tones. I bought that colour as I was actually going to ombre them and wanted the ends that particular shade and depth.
The set contained 10 wefts which was more than adequate for my hair I found and in honest the single 1″ wefts I only used 2 of. All the pictures in this review show the extensions as they were when they arrived, it is only the 2 pictures of me wearing them are of when they are coloured/ombre.
I wore these pretty much daily after colouring them and got a good amount of wear out of them too. I noticed minimal shedding, probably a few hairs and nothing huge at all and no more than I’d see with any other brand. The extensions are thick, glossy and super soft (Even after I had coloured them!). They didn’t tangle either, I say this but also add before someone pipes up about tangling, with ANY set I have EVER had including my tape ins you will also get some tangling at the nape as its where you constantly move your head! I’m talking about general tangling through the ends.
I did not trim these extensions at all, they were lightly tapered which gave a very natural finish and did not need cutting in my books. The 20″ length went almost to my waist at the back and covered my boobs (Just for reference of length).
Overall I thought these extensions were great and now they sit in a packet all neat and smooth for one day when I go darker again. Even if I did remove the darker colour rom them, at present they would be too dark for me now. Its a shame as they are really beautiful and completely worth the money in my books! I’ve bought and been sent a lot of hair extensions in my time while blogging and will sat Foxylocks sit in my top 3 of the best I have ever tried! I would definitely purchase from them again and highly recommend them, I just need to save my pennies so I can get a new set in my current shade – Bleach Blonde #613 (As yes, I am now light blonde again!).
