My Airy Hair Extensions Review – Too Cheap To Be True?


Hey everyone, today I want to review the Airy Hair Extensions because it was the first time I ever ordered from them and I was really curious to see if all the bad reviews I read online were actually real.

If you came across Airy Hair, you probably saw that they are a hair company that sells really cheap extensions, compared to most of the other companies. And cheaper usually means lower quality, right? At least in the online era.

Well, I read a lot of bad opinions about Airy Hair on different blogs, and I ever had 2 or 3 of my readers asking me about this company. And because I always think there must be a good side in everything, I said I should give these extensions a try.

Not because I really needed them, but because the sake of me readers who needed an objective opinion. Plus that they wouldn’t cost a fortune, so I could afford that. 😛

So guys, here’s my Airy Hair Extensions review. I hope you’ll enjoy it. 😀


Let’s Start With The Pros And Cons

What I liked about them

  • Cheaper than 90% of the other extensions from the market
  • The quality was incredibly good, I mean the 120 g set that I bought was really thick, from the roots to the ends (without any split ends or something)
  • The hair doesn’t get frizzy after washing
  • You can choose from a lot of colors and most importantly, a lot of hair textures (including kinky)
  • I’m pretty sure the hair is human, otherwise it wouldn’t behave so well after wash
  • They ship any set for free anywhere in the world
  • You have a 30 days period in which you can change them or ask for a refund if you don’t like the extensions (I can’t guarantee this is true, but that’s what they say on their site 😛 )
  • They offered me a 10% off coupon, so you can use it too: enter “SUNNY” before checkout

What I didn’t like about them

  • If you choose regular shipping, they won’t arrived faster than one week
  • I couldn’t find a lot of reviews which I could believe on their site; all of them were 5 stars, so I was pretty much assuming they only let positive reviews and deleted the bad ones (but I can’t be sure)




The Range Of Colors And Hair Textures Is Impressively Wide

After browsing around their website, I decided to get some clip-in hair extensions, because I was pretty pleased with the length of my hair (I just wanted volume) and I didn’t want to make a big change. So no extensions applied in salon for now. 😀

I have pretty curly hair, but this time I chose some straight extensions because the quality and the condition of the hair is much better visible when it’s straight, that’s what it seems to me. And that’s what I wanted to see, so I picked the straight ones. Plus that I wanted to pratice making them curly. 😉

Anyway, long story short, I ordered a Remy 22″ set of 120 g, with 10 pieces in total. 10 pieces are usually too much for my hair, but I like to choose a bigger set to change the pieces once the ends get a bit damaged. 120 g sets aren’t extremely thick, but I would say they’re over medium, so I would recommend them for a thick hair (but not very thick, if you get what I mean :P).

The color I chose was #2, which is a dark brown and the texture was straight. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they have 6 different textures of hair, and almost any color available for every texture (normal hair colors I mean, not green :P).

I didn’t request any faster shipping, because the standard one was supposed to come in 6 working days, so that seemed pretty decent. The shipping was free wordwide, so I didn’t pay anything for it. Total price: $55.90 😀


The Hair Was Much Thicker Than I Expected

My Airy Hair Extensions Review – Too Cheap To Be True?I received the extensions in one week, which was really fine because I was afraid I would get them after at least 2 weeks. So everything was fine until this.

When I opened the package, I was surprised to see the hair was really thick, much thicker I would have thought a 120 g set would be. You can see the photo, they are definitely not light at all. I even measured them, and they were exactly 22″. So I had a pleasant surprise from this point of view (you probably know that some companies send extensions 1-2 inches shorter than the official length).

One other thing that I absolutely loved was that the ends were as thick as the rest of the hair, so they hadn’t been cut through (as it happens in many cases). This really made me adore these extensions.

Regarding the color, it matched my hair perfectly, but I was kind of expecting that because #2 is exactly the shade of my hair, so it always matches the extensions. The clips are also pretty small, and the upper part isn’t too thick. This is important for me because I don’t like people to feel I’m wearing extensions when they touch my hair, and if the upper part is really thick, it’s obvious… (this usually happens in sets over 180 g).

So all in all, I was thrilled about this set from Airy Hair. At least when it comes to quality.


Washing The Hair Didn’t Change Anything

If you are familiar with wearing hair extensions, you probably know the fear you get when you wash them for the first time. I’ve had extensions that looked great and never got any tangles, but when I decided it was time to wash them, they got really dry and frizzy, completely different than they were before.

And this usually happened with sets cheaper than usual, so…

However, fortunately here it wasn’t the case. 😀 I used the regular Unite 2 Seconds conditioner that I always use, (without shampoo because it may dry the extensions), and after letting it dry naturally, the hair got just as smooth and silky as before. So misson accomplished successfully! 😀

PS: If the hair extensions are greasy or dirty and you really need shampoo, try to use one made of as many natural ingredients as possible. I usually wash them with Ryeo shampoos.


The Future Sounds Promising 😀

So I’ve only had these hair extensions for about a month, and I tried to wore them more than I would normally, just to be able to make a close-to-reality opinion about them. See how much I’m doing for you? 😛

My Airy Hair Extensions Review – Too Cheap To Be True?Joking apart, the extensions are as comfortable as others, I mean the clips don’t come off (if you clip them well, of course), they don’t itch or anything like this and they behave just like regular hair clips. And the hair itself, well…it didn’t change much in the first month.

I washed it 2 times in total (just with conditioner) and let it dry naturally and it was totally fine, the hair looked just like new. I didn’t use any special treatment because the ends weren’t dry, so it wasn’t really the case. But if you wear extensions daily, you may want to apply some special oil once a month, even if they are still in good shape.

Anyway, I’m pretty much expecting these extensions to last in perfect shape for at least 6 months, and in good shape for maybe a year and a half. I say this because I’ve tried so many hair extensions that I kind of know what I’m dealing with after a few weeks. And these ones are from that category that last more than one year, so this is a long lifetime in extensions terms. 😉


So, Do I Recommend Them?

I totally do. And I don’t say this necessarily because of the quality, because they don’t have the best quality I’ve ever seen in hair extensions. They have the quality I’ve seen in expensive extensions, and by this I mean in extensions over $200. So considering I paid $55 for them, I think I made a great deal.

Therefore, I do recommend Airy Hair Extensions. I didn’t know anything about them before so I couldn’t have an opinion, but now that I tried them I really advise you to try them too. You save a lot of money, that’s the main reason. Otherwise you could simply buy from Head Kandy and get “brand” extensions, but pay hundreds for them.

So I think Airy Hair is a much better solution, plus that they will refund you in the first 30 days if you don’t like them. I can’t guarantee about this because I didn’t try it, but I guess it’s true if it’s written on their site, right?

By the way, they offered me a 10% off coupon because I ordered from them, so I want to let you take advantage of it too. Enter “SUNNY” before completing your order and you get 10% OFF!.

Dry Hair Extension Advice – 4 Solutions To Make Your Hair Shine Again


If you’re used to wearing hair extensions, you’ve probably been through the “dry hair” problem at least once. The hair looks really soft at the beginning, but some hours after being in your hair, it gets frizzy and really tangled.

That’s a really frustrating problem, whose answer I’ve been trying to find for a long time, this is why I want to give you some dry hair extension advice, that will solve, at least partially, this huge problem.


Why do hair extensions get dry so easily?

You’ll find this question everywhere, as most people are worried about the cause that makes hair extensions so dry.

The answer is very simple, the extensions don’t have any connection with our scalp, that would hydrate them properly. This is why, while our hair remains soft thanks to the oils from the scalp, the extensions don’t receive these oils, so they get dry because of lack of moisture.


What can we do to prevent them from getting oily?

Dry hair extension adviceI’ve heard a lot of things, like washing them with organic shampoos, applying conditioner, hair mask and so on. The problem is that, even though I was doing all these things, my hair extensions didn’t seem to get any softer, on the contrary, they even looked drier than usual.

So I kept researching and found out that hair extensions need to be hydrated very often, and by this I mean that you have to take big care what products you use on them. Try to style them only with quality tools and to use an appropriate shampoo.

I’ve tried many types of oils and some of them disappointed me really bad, because they didn’t work at all, and other surprised me in the good way, because I didn’t expect such a good result.

So now I will show you what kind of oils I’ve tried, starting right from the beginning. I hope that my experience will help you find the best dry hair extension advice and treatment.

Olive Oil

Dry hair extension adviceIt was the first oil I’ve tried for my hair extensions because I had heard a lot of good things about it, that it moisturizes really dry hair and so on. The result? It disappointed me really really bad… 🙁

Not only that it didn’t make the hair softer, but I had to work a bit until I removed all the tangles and it was also very hard to rinse from the hair.

So, honestly, I don’t really recommend using Olive Oil for hair extensions. Maybe it works great for your own hair (for mine it does) but when it comes to hair extensions, it’s kind of useless, especially if your extensions are really dry.


Castor Oil

This was the second oil I’ve tried, and I chose it because I had heard that, as most oils, moisturizes and nourishes hair very well, so it’s perfect for dry hair.

Dry hair extension adviceI wasn’t really interested in the hair growth effect (which is the most famous effect of Castor Oil), but I thought the nourishing proprieties it had would be enough. It was also pretty easy to find and not very expensive, so I said I should really try.

It was one of the things I deeply regret. I don’t know when and where I read that Castor Oil could make hair softer and remove the friziness, but in my case it was totally the opposite.

The hair extensions were simply drier than before, even though I couldn’t imagine them drier than that… There was no way I could ever wear them like this, they looked like doll hair and I looked like having some strands that didn’t have anything to do with my own hair.

Horrible, I don’t even want to remember… Anyway, the point is that Castor Oil should be the last thing you apply on your hair extensions, believe me, it will dry them out really bad. 🙁


Coconut Oil

Though you’re probably expecting some other critical stuff, this isn’t really the case because I can’t deny the great effect Coconut Oil had on my hair extensions.

Dry hair extension adviceI’ve read all over the Internet that it’s one of the few oils that penetrate the internal part of hair follicles, providing a deep moisturize. Honestly, this sounded quite believable, but after all my experience with hair oils, I didn’t want to make any expectations and get really disappointed again.

The bad thing about Coconut Oil is that you usually buy it solid and you have to melt it manually. Now, this doesn’t sound very bad, but the problem is that, if not kept at a higher temperature, it gets solid again.

And I’ve experienced Coconut Oil getting solid right on my hair extensions. You don’t want to know how that is…

To end the matter, Coconut Oil quite does what it promises, so it’s a great treatment for dry hair extensions. I’ve noticed that the hair remained soft even after several days, not extremely soft, that’s true, but at least it wasn’t frizzy and tangled.

And, after all, that was almost what I was looking for.


Almond Oil

It’s my favorite oil when it comes to preventing hair extensions from getting dry. I can say Almond Oil quite solved this difficult problem and I’m really happy I tried this oil, when I thought it would be totally useless.

I don’t usually apply a very large quantity, but this depends of how dry hair is. I remember at the beginning I added more, and it moisturized the entire hair , so if your extensions are extremely dry, you can apply a bigger quantity.

I guess I don’t have to say how much I love this oil and how addicted I am to it. 😀 The good part is that you can find it pretty easy, in organic or beauty shops, and it’s not very expensive either.

After you apply it, I recommend you to let it sit for about half and hour and if you can, blow dry it easily, as this will help it enter the inner part of the hair follicles.

Remember that, from what I’ve seen, Almond Oil is the best Dry hair extension advice I could give you, and if it managed to treat my terribly dehydrated hair extensions, it will definitely treat yours too.


To conclude

As I said, I’ve tried many oils to treat my dry hair extensions, and while some were a huge disappointment, other were a miracle. In case you didn’t feel like reading the whole article, you should know that Almond Oil is the best natural treatment for dry hair extensions, and it will definitely manage to moisturize yours too.

Which oil have you tried for you hair extensions? Did it work well? 😀
