Gold 22 // Remi Shine Human Hair Extensions Review

 Hello lovelies! 

I know you've all been wondering 'How did Zaineb grow her hair so long'? Let's just clarify I'm wearing extensions hahah (looks so natural right?).
For many years I'd been using Premium Now European hair when I wanted to add some length to my tresses. More recently I've discovered that the quality of Premium Now European hair isn't as good as it used to be so I really just wanted a change. 
I'd had many conversations with friends and family about brands and it seemed I'd always get recommended companies that sell Luxury Brazillian/Peruvian hair. If I'm honest, I wasn't prepared to spend like £60 for a bundle of hair so I decided to do some research. 

I came across Gold 22 who were already following me on twitter so from there I just had a browse of their website which I absolutely love! Can I just put it out there.. this is no ordinary hair brand. Gold 22 sell everything from their own brand hair (Luxe and Lustre) to babyliss hair straighteners, L'oreal products and are even stocked in Superdrug (proof: click me)! I was definitely sold when I saw the last part, I've seen far too many stories where girls have spent hundreds of pounds on extensions and have been totally ripped of so I definitely felt safe! 

Anyway onto the review, 

Straight or curly?
Before I ordered the hair, I wasn't sure which colour to go for as my hair is mixed, so I emailed the company first... they were very swift and instantly got back to me with the right match. I ordered the Remi Shine Straight Weft in 18 inches and in colour P4/27 as recommended by the Gold 22 team. 
I J'adore this hair. I have a sew in as I do not have the time to clip in extensions in every morning and really want to protect my hair from this horrible weather we've been getting recently. 
When I first installed my weave the first thing I said was "OMG this hair is super silky". No kidding! It literally slips and slides off my shoulders making me feel like Pocahontas.

I've had this hair in for just over a week now and took the above picture as of 30/08/2014. I've left one side straight and one side with loose curls just so you can see the difference. The hair has not turned dry after curling or straightening which often happens with Premium Now hair, and doesn't tangle much (when it does its so easy to just brush out). I haven't witnessed any shedding of the hair which I'm so pleased with because this has been a real problem previously with other brands.

Have a look at some pictures:
Hair - fresh out of the packet

One side straight - the other curly 


Magazine - lustre hair styles which are affordable
Colour chart - matching your hair made easy
My recommendations:
Gold 22 are based in the UK however do ship internationally. If you're from the UK and order over £50 you'll receive free delivery. 
- All you need is two packets of hair to achieve this full look 
- Use the contact form for any help regarding colour matching 
- Have a look at their Lustre fusion mix (a mix of synthetic and human hair for more volume) , I want to try about 3 of their curly hair looks.. 

& That's it Thanks for reading! 


P.S Gold 22 hair starts at just £5 a packet - have a look: click me :O
