Why I Wanted Hair Extensions
I wanted hair extensions for a quick fix to have longer hair while I waited for my own natural hair to grow out but I also didn't want to spend the thousands of dollars for a salon to potentially ruin my hair!

I was looking for a DIY hair extension process with quality hair that presented the least amount of damage to my natural hair. When looking for a hair extension method, I was most concerned with visibility, comfort, and quality.

I found ManeMaxx® on the diyextensions.net hair forum. I liked the fact that there is no chemicals involved with the installation or removal process. I didn't like the fact that if the bond gets to warm by using a hair dryer, etc. that the bond would be able to be removed easily.

The hair extension bond is lightweight and easy to wear and NOBODY can tell that I'm wearing extensions!

About My Hair Extension Application
Before applying the hair extensions, I cleansed my hair with a clarifying shampoo and prepped my work area in my bathroom. I took the the time to read and review EVERYTHING on the website. I took the time to do the installation properly.

My MANEMAXX hair extension application was successful and it went in easy and quick! I basically locked myself away in my washroom for 8 hours until my install was completed! My husband would pop in every hour or two to make sure I was still alive ;)

The learning curve is quite large but once you get the hang of it, applying the hair extensions yourself gets easier and you start to make better bonds. I had to make-shift a mirror stand when doing the back of my head otherwise it would have taken a full day just to feel out the back!

I've been wearing ManeMaxx Hair extensions for 7 months (2 installs). My experience has been nothing but positive from the hair quality to customer service. Nobody (even seasoned extensions experts) can tell that I'm wearing hair extensions, I receive SO many compliments on my hair and I have nobody to thank but ManeMaxx (and I guess myself for awesome styling, haha). The installation is light weight and very comfortable to wear, even from the first night. The extension hair is soft.

I definitely feel sexy and confident!!


About My Hair Extension Wear
My first hair extension install was for 3 months, I decided that I wanted to uninstall and do a new batch of my loose wave extension hair instead of straight. My second diy install has been for about 4 months now and on to my third install and will continue to wear for at least a year until my hair grows out to my desired length.

There are a lot of gals in my office that have worn extensions and have been in the biz, and none of them could tell that I had hair extensions in, they all complimented my hair and said it is flawless! It's so comfortable to wear and I can't even tell that the hair isn't my own, it blends so well and is nice and light-weight.

Still love the ManeMaxx® system and going on my third install.


My Tips for Others
I would say a good color match and cut to blend in the extensions would make the extension hair unnoticeable. A lot of patience too for your initial install! As time goes on and you get more comfortable with the application, installs will go faster and your bonds will stay in longer :)

My Thoughts for Visitors
Definitely give this method a try if you're a DIY-er and want to save a ton of money on extensions. Don't hesitate and wait the year that I did before ordering!

My Message for ManeMaxx®
Great method guys!
