Review - Effortless Extensions ~ Create Tons of Length and Volume in Mere Seconds


Effortless ExtensionsEffortless ExtensionsWhen it was time for me to get married, I desperately wanted to have long, flowing locks for the ceremony.  Unfortunately, I have been born with baby fine hair, which ends up looking stringy if I let it grow too long.  I thought that I would just get some hair extensions sewn in for our wedding and honeymoon, until I found out how much they cost!  So, it was time to do the next best thing, which was to buy some extensions and have them clipped in.

I was very nervous on my wedding day, for I didn't know how well these extensions would stay clipped onto my hair.  My fine hair is so slick, that a lot of hair clips and accessories will fall out in a short amount of time.

My friend had to put half a box of bobby pins in my hair just to keep my extensions in.  Because I didn't know for sure whether or not my clipped-in extensions would last with all of the hugging and dancing during the reception, I opted to take them out immediately after the ceremony and wear my hair up instead.

Effortless Extensions has set out to change all of that with hair extensions that require no clipping, gluing, sewing or taping.  Keep reading to learn much more!

I reviewed the Effortless Extensions (Synthetic Hair) in Flare (Platinum Blonde/Dirty Blonde/Golden Blonde Blended) from Hair Solutions by ME, which retails for $84.98, but is currently on sale for $69.98.

Effortless Extensions are a time-and-mess-saving hair accessory because they require no clips, no glue, no sewing, no skill, and no assistance.  Effortless Extensions are the first hair extensions that do not connect to the hair in any way, yet the comfortable crown support circle ensures they will stay in place, even when fully active. They blend seamlessly into your natural hair, in literally seconds, whereas other products take up to one hour to apply.

As most women know, spending the day at a salon and having extensions glued or sewn in can not only be extremely time consuming and costly, but also damaging to the hair. With Effortless Extensions, you can have fabulous hair without creating issues with your own natural locks.

Effortless Extensions also help you achieve a natural look since they are made from a new XO synthetic fiber, which is so close to human hair, it's hard to distinguish.  The XO synthetic is the only fiber on the market you can wash, condition, blow-dry, curl or flat iron just like you own hair.

I tried using Effortless Extensions on my own hair and was amazed at how fast and easy they were to apply.  Simply set the invisible crown support on top of your head, behind your ears, and pull about 1/4 of your own hair over the top of the Effortless Extensions and comb to blend in.  Normally, I would have shown you my own pictures in this review, but my hair is way too short for the extensions to look right.

My hair falls to around the middle of my neck and in order to really look good, I would suggest your own hair fall down a little past your shoulders, if not longer.  Basically, if your hair is long enough to put in a ponytail, then I think the Effortless Extensions will look great.

You should also remember when purchasing the Effortless Extensions that you should match the color of the bottom of your hair to the extensions.  This is the part of your hair which will really have to blend in with the extensions.  The color I chose wasn't as varied as my own hair, since I have both highlights and lowlights all the way through.  This characteristic of my hair made the extensions fairly visible when I was wearing them.


The only part of the Effortless Extensions that made me a little nervous was how easy they were to both put on and take off.  When I moved my head around, I could feel the extensions scooting and moving on my head a little.  They never came close to coming off, but I have to admit that feeling them move made me a little wary.

What I loved about the Effortless Extensions is how they don't damage your own hair in any way, they are lightweight and look and feel very natural.  If you are looking for super sexy volume and thick, voluptuous locks, you can even wear two of these extensions at the same time!

Because they can be washed, blow-dried and curled with an iron, you can always style your extensions to blend in perfectly with your own hair.  If you love the option of easy, do-it-yourself hair extensions which will look great, not damage your hair and not cost a fortune either, then I highly recommend checking out Effortless Extensions.

    This looks like a great idea for my daughter who is involved in pageants — for changes in between competitions (talent/evening gown etc.).

      Melissa Says:


      Oh, I’m sure your daughter will love these then! I used to be involved in pageants too when I was younger…they’re definitely a blast! Good luck to her! :-)
