Hair Extensions at Grow Unltd!

Hey guys,
So as you may know few weeks ago I went and got my first set of extensions! I am used to wearing clip in extensions and over a year ago I chopped my long hair off to a bob style. I was sick of clipping extensions in and waiting for my hair to grow so I finally gave in and got hair extensions that will last a few months.

I went and treated myself to new hair at Grow Unltd. Grow Unltd is in Waterford City and I would not look past them! They specialise in hair extensions as health and growth is their goal! They are also the only Kevin Murphy concept salon in Waterford. When I put one foot in the door I was amazed at how fabulous the salon looks and I was also greeted by friendly staff straight away.
I decided to do a blog post about my hair extensions as I got loads of people asking about them and complimenting them. This post will also help if you are thinking about getting extensions. Hair extensions are a great way to create that instant new look if its by length, thickness or even changing your colour. Here are some pictures of their amazing work:

Starting off I have fine hair but a lot of it and because of this I find it hard to get volume or body in my hair. I like the extensions as they give me the length of course but because they also give me lots of volume and thickness! Grow do a few ranges of hair extensions such as hairspray, gold fever and beauty works. I got the Beauty Works Luxury pre bonded hair extensions which are an award winning brand.

Do they hurt?

People have asked me do they hurt and the answer is no! The first day or two they can feel slightly heavy but that’s because I am not used to them and there is a lot of hair there than what you are used to!

How much are they?

This question cant really be answered as everyones hair is different. It all depends on how many extensions you’re getting, how many shades you want, the length you want, and if you are getting other services aswell such as your own hair coloured. This is why a consultation would be done before hand. A consultation is free and this is a must to find out what exactly will be done and find out your own personal price. Grow actually do special offer some months so keep an eye out for that, I got my Beauty Works 100 strand hair extensions 22″ in length for €300. Hair extensions are not cheap, you get what you pay for!
All hair extension services include a wash and blowdry before they are installed. This service is so relaxing as the chairs pull out and vibrate! Kevin Murphy products are used to prep your hair at the sink.

What is the aftercare like?

After paying that kind of money on your hair you need to look after them and go by the rules! They are treated like your own hair but with more attention and care. Extensions can get split ends and eventually look damaged after being styled over and over again without using heat protection spray so looking after them is a must to keep that shine and condition on them.

  • The most important part of looking after hair extensions and keeping them in good condition is your shampoo and conditioner! Grow unltd use Kevin Murphy products and I started using these products when I got the extensions and just fell in love! All Kevin Murphy hair products are sulphate free, paraben free and cruelty free meaning they are super safe for hair extensions.Kevin Murphy shampoo
  • Brush your hair extensions quite a bit every day. This is important because you don’t want your hair getting knotty and tangled up. Do not half arse doing it by running your fingers through it get a hair extension brush, keep it in your bag and brush it from the root down to separate each strand.
  • When sleeping always tie your hair up as it prevents matting during the night if your like me and toss and turn during your sleep. I always braid mine or put a tight ponytail in at the back of the nape of neck. Having your hair loose it doesn’t help you may aswell not have it tied at all.
  • Make sure to separate the bonds to prevent matting. Do this by running your fingers through the bonds and you may feel a couple of strands stuck together and you just have to pull these apart. This should be done daily!
