I've been thinking lately that I should change the name of this blog: Weird Things that Happen to Me

I'm going to let you in on a little secret about me.  Parts of me are fake.  My face for example, is most reconstructed, as I'm sure I have discussed on here a few times.  Also, my almost blonde hair?  A little spray of hydrogen peroxide, a little sun, and boom.  Blonde-ish hair.

Also, I sometimes wear extensions.  Kristy taught me about them.  Here is a photo of me the first night I wore them.  They add length and thickness to my hair that is amazing.

I apparently also needed an intervention about my roots.  

I mostly just wear them to church because who can wake up earlier than necessary to put in extensions to impress people in the office?  Not this girl.

On Sunday at church I mentioned to my friend that I was wearing my fake hair and she then asked if she could see it.  I took out a single piece - they are just clip-ins - and showed her how to put it in her hair, etc.  Nothing too complicated and no one was around.  About 30 minutes later I was riding home on the subway with a few friends, a woman and a man.  It should be noted that the man is single, and so he knows very little about women's beauty products.  My lady friend said to me - why is your hair so long on this side - and pulled an entire clip of hair off my arm while our male friend looked on in horror.  No big deal - just lost a huge chunk of my hair.
I just laughed and shoved it in my bag.  
PS - If you want more information about my extensions, let me know.  I am happy to pass along useful information.  I'm wearing them in only one of the photos below.  Any guesses on which one?

Clip in hair extensions are so convenient and they add length and body on a day when you feel like you need it. The best part is, you are not damaging your hair or putting anything permanent on that you would have to deal with later on when you want them removed. We all have bad hair days and this is a great way to cope!
