Something fun that I discovered this summer was that because this is real human hair, it brightens and lightens up in the summer sun, which is what human hair does. Look at the difference between the picture above and the one below. The one above was taken at the beginning of July and the one below towards the end. I love the natural highlights that the sun provides; it's better than going to the salon!
So I got blonder, even though my real hair underneath didn't because it was mostly covered up by my "new hair." My real hair has totally let me down over the last decade and is aging poorly so that's what it gets! 😏
I am still LOVING this hair. I think I always will. It truly is one of the best things that's happened to me in a long time and I remain very thankful for finally finding this option for myself.
Good news! I found the missing barrette! That was a happy day for me. 😆
I played around more with the half-ponytail. I like this style because it pulls all of the hair back from off my face but still leaves some of it down. I like that it looks less full around my face this way too, which is more my natural lifelong look because of my natural lifelong thin hair.
