Hair Extension Brand Review – Babe Hair Extensions

8 Jun

My last set of extensions, and the ones that are still waiting for me to put back in my hair, were Babe Brand.  Babe is based in Salt Lake City, Utah.


Once again, a reminder:

Please note – hair care for both brands is virtually the same.  

1) be gentle

2) don’t yank or pull your hair too much

3) be careful with pulled back hair styles such as ponytails

4) don’t use shampoos or conditioners with sulfates or alcohol or oil

5) don’t blast your tapes with heat – it will melt your glue

6) listen to all advice your hair care professional will give you

Another Quick plug –  If you are in the Northwest Chicago/Suburban area, my friend Elyse did my extensions both times. She’s an amazing stylist and I would recommend her to anyone wanting awesome, funky, edgy, beautiful, and healthy hair. Here is her website.

Hair Review

Babe Pros

Hair texture – although I liked the texture of the Hotheads because it matched my frizzy hair, the Babe hair feels a lot better.  It’s smoother and the individual strands feel thicker. It’s less frizzy and lays more straight than wavy.

No shedding – I didn’t have long red strands all over the house, shower drain, towels, sink.  It was great.

No knots – I didn’t get the weird mess of knots around the wefts.

Length – the Babe length is slightly longer and I really liked that.

Overall appearance – Babe just looks better.  Shinier, thicker, healthier looking hair

Overall daily maintenance – Because these didn’t shed or knot or get tangled as the Hotheads, I didn’t need to spend as much time daily baby-ing them.  It was nice not to brush gingerly and try to get tangles out.

Babe Cons

Stylability – I didn’t think these held a curl as well.  I felt the curls didn’t get as tight and lost their bounce quicker.

Would I get this brand again?  

Most likely yes, even if I didn’t have hair still waiting for me.  These looked better day to day, I was much happier with Babe than without.

Also, on the last photo we did a color melt/smudge to get rid of the root mark.  I love love love this trend.

I hope I covered everything!  I linked to the Hotheads review on top as well so you can read both if you are interested.

      No, I just had them for a while. I am by no means an expert 🙂
