DISCLAIMER: This is not a sponsored review by any form. I purchased Luxy Hair Extension myself with my own money! All the opinions are 100% honest.
I've been having a set of hair extension bought off AliExpress for a while. It was really cheap and the amount of hair I got was decent. But the problem was the hair on that extension was really thick texture, really dried hair. So not long after I purchased, it started to become super dry, tangle up all the time, and really doesn't feel as smooth as it was before, and started to become hard to blend with my own hair.
So after I've been doing a bit of research, I finally targed down to these three brands: Luxy Hair, BellaMi Hair, Milani Hair...
Here are my thoughts before purchasing:
I've been watching Luxy Hair's tutorials on YouTube for quite a while now, but never actually checked their website for extension until last week. I really like Layla and Mimi's tutorials, they always create such beautiful hairstyles, and those two sisters definitely have put a lot of time and energy into their YouTube channel. I really like both of them, and feel like the product really could be trusted since they wear the same extensions in their videos, and they have a whole set of videos on their website can help you to learn everything about extensions, I found those videos really helpful. So those two sisters kinda drove me to finally decide to get their ones.
Price: $149.95 (160 gram, 20 inch, 10 clips)
Shipping: Free worldwide
About BellaMi hair, they have TONS of popular YouTuber wearing their extensions now. And their Instagram is having a lot of followers and attentions now. But I feel like there's something missing. Their website doesn't even have as many photos as it should be (a lot of colors don't have model photos). I believe they have good quality hair extensions as well, but I don't feel like I want to support this brand as much as Luxy. And also their color system is exactly the same as Luxy Hair's one (please let me know if I'm wrong), even the names and stuff. So I guess both hair could possibly from the same source? I will probably try them in the future at some stage, just want to see the difference between BellaMi and Luxy.
Price: $159.99 (160 gram, 20 inch, 10 clips)
Shipping: $5.00 flat shipping free worldwide
I found out about this lady's business through Instagram. I liked it when I was on Instagram kinda, I like the idea you can purchase a piece of "color ring" and return it with full refund when you're purchasing your own set. But as soon as I went to their website, the ad video really put me off. The way everyone talked in the video really remind me of those annoying old style TV ads. And also their International shipping fee is like CRAZY!
Price: $189.99 (only 100 gram, 20 inch, 7 clips)
Shipping: $55.00 (seriously?!)
So now let's see my unboxing pictures and first impression on Luxy Hair.
I really like this idea that you can check just one single piece just to make sure it's the right color! I feel like they think about customers a lot just from this little detail.
The hair is sooooo soft and silky. Hair is a lot more fine than my old set, and doesn't have that strange smell. (I was really worried when I first received my no brand old set, the smell was horrible and I had to wash it before wearing, but there was still some sort of smell left on it. Feels unsafe right?)
And also you get 4 back-up clips, this is so thoughtful again! So much little details I can feel they pay so much attention to their products.
My old set from AliExpress didn't come with any extra clips, and two were broken!
I think the money I spent on Luxy is definitely worth so far. You get worldwide free shipping (so good for us that are outside of US), a box to store your extension, and Luxy sisters constantly making new hair tutorials on YouTube for us. It is 3 times more expensive than my old no brand hair extensions I bought on AliExpress before, but the quality of hair is waaaaay better! It's so much softer and smoother, the texture of hair is more fine and feels a lot healthier. And color match was perfect! (they have two videos showing you all the colors you can get, an old one and a really good quality new one)
I'm really happy about this purchase, and I'll definitely keep supporting Luxy sisters! Thank you guys for sharing all the amazing hairstyles with us <3 . Definitely would recommend their hair extensions to my friends.
I'll be making another review video on my YouTube channel after I've been wearing this for a while to test it out more. Thanks for reading.
