Hair extensions. I’ve always wanted to try it eversince I heard about it. I was really curious what would I look like if I have longer hair- longer than my usual length. As far as I remember, the longest length that my hair has ever been was about half of my back. But much as I wanted to let it grow longer, I can’t because of the hot and humid weather here in the Philippines. It is also kinda expensive to maintain a long hair. Just imagine the amount of shampoo and conditioner that I have to use. Plus, getting a treatment in salons will definitely dry out my wallet, since they usually charge by the length.
And so I got myself one from Amazing Beauty, it is actually an international brand and is not locally available in stores here in the Philippines- so you need to order online. But in my case, Amazing Beauty sent me one of their products for me to try, so I did not go through the ordering process.
The box packaging looks neat. Not too much details on it. It’s actually nice and not cheap looking.

Amazing Beauty Hair Extensions are made with the highest quality Remy human hair, guaranteed to have the cuticle intact. Our hair is hand selected and undergoes a unique manufacturing process using all eco-friendly products. This allows us to produce long lasting hair extensionsthat blend seamlessly with your own hair.
WHAT IS REMY HAIR? Remy hair is the highest grade of real human hair and is collected in a method in which all hair strands stay aligned in the natural direction as it grew to maintain the natural texture pattern and cuticle direction. Remy hair eliminates tangling problems commonly found in non-Remy or low quality hair. This is the reason why it is the preferred choice for hair extensions, hairpieces and wigs because it can achieve the most natural look.
You will see in a while how it looked on me .
Amazing Beauty Hair Extensions offers two types, the Tape in, and the Clip in hair extensions. But for this blog, I will focus more on on the Tape In type.
Amazing Beauty Tape In Hair Extensions are available in 14, 16, 18, 20 and 22 inches which starts $69.00 to $89 (roughly around Php3600-Php4,700- depends on the PHP-USD exchange rate).
I got myself the 18 inches and 20 inches of #33 (Dark Auburn) which I think the closest to the current color of my hair. What I like about Amazing Beauty hair extensions is that it offers a wide range of colors about more than 50 color shades, from single colors like black, brown, reds, blondes to styled colors such as
True to their claims, Amazing Beauty hair extension’s quality is very nice. How I wish that the texture of my hair would look like this hahahha. When I saw and was able to feel the actual hair extension, I got more excited to use it.
Just a bit of information about Amazing Beauty Hair Extensions, Since it is using 100% remy human hair, you can actually color the hair extensions just like your own hair(will try this one once I change my hair color). I also tried using hair iron to straighten it up and it did not burn. Cool right?
For a beginner like me and with no experience at all when it comes to applying hair extensions, It was kinda challenging. I suggest if you don’t want to waste you precious time and would want to finish applying the hair extensions as quickly as possible, ask somebody to help you or go to your preferred hair stylist.
Applying to the side is easy peasy, but as I move further going to the back, it’s kinda hard to align anymore. I need more practice hahaha. I’ll do better next time.
Tadaaaah! Here’s the BEFORE and AFTER application of the Amazing Beauty Tape In Hair Extensions. I also used hair straightening iron to tone down my wavy hair(which you can see on the first photo). What do you think? not bad for a first timer right? Please say Yes! hahahah!
- Do keep the peeled off white paper adhesive(the one you removed before applying the extensions). You can still use it and put it back on to keep the tape adhesive even after use.
- If you want to add more hair volume using the extensions, use 2 tape ins- stick one on top of the other.
- You can use hair curler or hair straightening tools to style up the extensions according to your hair style preferrence. Don’t worry, it will NOT burn(not unless you’ll leave it on the high heat of your tools)
Overall, it was a very challenging but rewarding experience fo me being able to apply it all by myself. LONGER HAIR ACHIEVED! and I’m loving it!
