These were my first set of real hair extensions, ever, so I didn't know what to expect when I got them. I think I bought them in the dyable set they have, in 24inches quad weft and they were absolutely beautiful when I got them. Silky smooth, brushed through easily, kinda had a chemical smell. Wore them, they were fine until about the middle of the day where the hair at the nape of my neck would start tangling. Now I've heard some people say it was a normal thing for extensions on a hot day, so I disregarded that.
Then comes time to wash the extensions for the first time and man did they shed. Hair was no longer shiny after washing, it air dried wavy, which I didn't mind. The hair also became several times frizzier after washing. The ends were breaking off, not a good experience. After that first wash it became difficult to take the extensions out of my hair, I had to kind of rip them out, luckily my own hair is stronger and so it didn't pull out my real hair. Now I know extensions will shed a little bit, but these extensions have thinned out to less than half of what they originally were by 4 months. Every time I brushed the hair, clumps of hair would come out and I'd have to take the hair out of the brush/comb.
I heard all the good reviews about these extensions, and apparently the company was bought out or changed the website, I don't really know what happened but supposedly the good reviews were the older reviews from the former company.
In short, would not reccomend, atleast judging from the set I got. (This is coming from a first time extension wearer)

OMG! I am soooooo disappointed. I have previously ordered from Headkandy.co.uk and I was super impressed. They were soft, silky, the colour matched perfectly and they reflected light in a way the only healthy hair can (I'm a hairstylist - I know healthy hair when I see it!). So anyway the initial length was too long for my hair. I tried them out once - for 5 minutes at home,and then put them away in their original packaging to wear when my hair finally gets long enough. I decided to get a slightly shorter length. Again - perfect quality - this was in June 2013.
Since it was my first set of extensions they obviously took a bit of a beating (trial and error of a first time extension user I suppose). Anyhow I decided to get another set. When I entered the website address into the browser it came up as an unfound domain name or similar. I nearly sheds a tear lol. Googled headkandy and and a "dirtylooks" website popped up. I saw that they had hk extension. I hoped that they were the original headkandy extensions I adored. To be sure I sent them an email asking what's going on. I got a prompt reply telling me that the extensions were exactly the same only that dirty looks now distribute them. I was relieved - I was a FOOL!
So I ordered the exact same set as before, and they arrived yesterday! When I opened the box marked HK I Was surprised to find that there was something slightly off about the packaging. The hair net had a hole and it seemed that some of the hair had been trapped in the seal. It's nothing major but compared to the previous packaging it was definitely substandard. So anyway I opened the test strand. What immediately struck me was the smell. Girls, it was the smell of cheap! You know, the same smell as mass produced clothing etc. how could this be!? I didn't pay for cheap! I paid for top quality! I'm from South Africa the rate of exchange was, at time of purchase 18,89ZAR-1£ and I paid 99,99£. That is the equivalent to minimum wage salary in SA, my friends! It gets worse - they felt awful! Dry as the Sahara desert and I could see they had the potential for matting more than Mary's little lamb! Also some of the hair looked like it had been singed. I doubt whether or not the are even 100% real human hair extensions! I compared them to my previous extensions, the ones I stored - in perfect condition - these are definitely second rate in comparison. No shine. No silky feel. Just broken hair and tangles!
It took me a long time to research the best quality brand of extensions! It's not an easy task either, because anyone can write a false review! So I'm totally lost now - back to the drawing board!
I will definitely be returning these crap extensions! And I'll also definitely be emailing them to have a good rant! I do not take lightly to liars who want to steal my money! I pay extra for quality and that's what I expect!
PS I am a real person with no affiliation to any hair extension company! Consumers need to stick together with regards to phony reviews and bogus promises from money hungry, lying companies! SAVE YOUR MONEY GIRLS - RATHER PAY ONCE FOR QUALITY THAN PAY TWICE FOR INFERIOR, LOW-GRADE PRODUCTS!

These are terrible, I won't lie. They smell horrific, synthetic. The colour I ordered was a dark brown, and it actually was a medium brown in person. I had to have my hair coloured to match them, which was MORE money. I tried to dye them, and the dye didn't show up much. They are also NOT SOFT AT ALL. They are coarse and rough, and so tangly I can't really wear them. I shouldn't have bought these. These were my first extensions and I saved up for them, and it was a bad experience. A total waste of money, and they have a terrible return policy (if you open the package, you can't return them).
Next time, I'm going with something less expensive (if I can save the money up again... GRRRRRRRR)

I HATE HATE HATE HATEE these extensions!!! I wish I read the reviews on here before buying them because everywhere else people kept saying how amazing these were. Well they are crap quality. I've had $40 hair extensions that are better quality than these.
As another reviewer commented, these smell disgusting. I have to use extremely perfumed shampoo and conditioner to stand wearing these and the smell never goes away fully. I bought mine about a year ago and have only worn them 10-15 times.
I bought the Parisian highlights for $210 w/o shipping. You can decide for yourself whether or not that's a reasonable price to pay for a tangled mass
This is the ONLY thing I appreciate from HK, I bought them and a week later they arrived. Amazing shipping considering I'm in Canada and everything takes about 2 weeks to a month to arrive.
How they deal with dye:
They don't. Say good bye to wearable bad quality hair extensions and hello to shed mania.
They suck. I mean, they're not the worst but for $210 I would expect these to never fall out of my hair... Which they do.
Is NOT human hair and if it actually is then they must process it to hell. After a couple washes the hair kept matting and I would have to brush it every 1-2 hours to keep it looking natural.
Just don't buy hair extensions online, go to your local salon or Sally's and buy a brand from there. I bought my second pair of Euronext hair extensions from Sally's not too long ago and I can say that they are soo much better (and cheaper) than HK. I'm still kinda shocked people are selling this low quality hair for $210 and people keep buying them.

I bought these extensions about a year+ ago, although I'm not positive on the exact color, I know they were black. First off, the packaging was great! Super cute and well packaged and the shipping was FAST! when I first got them they were SO Nice! Soft, silky and thick! HOWEVER, the smell was so gross!!! I bought the 24-26 inch extensions and at first they were too long so I Did end up trimming them so that they wouldn't look so fake...OK, back to the smell, they smelled so bad and full of chemicals that I had to wash them at least 3 times before wearing them so that I wouldn't feel self cautious due to the smell...BIG MISTAKE. Once I washed them they went to crap! They matted and tangled really bad while in my hair, I was literally ripping them out of my hair! Needless to say, the smell never really went away; I recently found them stored away in their original packaging and when I went to open it, the smell was JUST AS BAD as the first time I got them. I honestly did only wear them 2-3 times and I regret spending $200 of my birthday money on these low quality hair extensions - that claim to be real.

Before I buy something I always want to read reviews on the product. So that's what I did... I searched for YouTube reviews and the majority of the videos were a thumbs up on the hair extensions and I got super excited! Buuutttt.... I then searched for reviews on google for more info on these extensions, and the majority of the reviews I was reading were BAD! Sooo I was having doubts on them. I still decided to order them. I mean if you don't try a product out for yourself then you'll NEVER know... Right?
I ordered them on a Friday for I think $200, maybe a little over because of the shipping. I ordered my hair extensions in the color "MANHATTAN HIGHLIGHTED BLONDE" and 24-26 inches.
Okayy... Thursday of next week I got them! SUPER FAST SHIPPING, which is a PLUS!!! (I live in the US.) They came all wrapped up and cute in a purple box. I couldn't wait to wear them! But I had to dye my hair first of all to match them. (I had a light brown color but wanted the manhattan highlighted blonde color for my hair)
After I got my hair matched with the extensions I started wearing them. Although I noticed they were shedding A LOT!!! When I would put my fingers through them some strands of hair would tag a long with my fingers and also tangle easily!! Though, I didn't pay much attention at that TIME because I didn't want to HATE them... LOL.. because they were such a pretty color and long. ANYWAYSS... soo once I washed them a month later or so... they TANGLEDD SOOO MUCH after that. Now here I am 3-4 months later and enough was enough! I took care of them as much as possible and I might not be a professional with hair extensions but when you have worn extensions for 4 years now.. of course you can totally tell what kind of hair is REAL. I am not saying HEADKANDY hair extensions TOTALLY SUCKS... I just know they are NOT 100% REAL HUMAN HAIR.
I guess you just get lucky if you do get Headkandy hair extensions that are worth it.
I will DEFINITLY NEVER order from this company EVER EVER again..

Okay, I bought these two different times. The first time, I loved the extensions. I bought a volumizer weft and then a track to go with it. They lasted a good while and were very thick. I never noticed anything about them that wasn't great. Then, I bought some others and there were fly away hairs and I didn't like the texture at all. I couldn't really get them to look right because they were to fly away. Overall, I would say these are good but I was a little worried when I recently bought the two wefts. I think the hair quality is pretty good though. I think you would be okay with this brand more than most.

ive been wearing clip in extensions for almost 5 years now and let me tell you, these are the absolute best ive ever had !!! they are so thick and real looking, i get complimented on my hair daily! i have the 22-26 or 24 inch, something like that but they are very long and a gorgeous toned blonde, ive had them for a few months now and i wear them every day even to bed and they still look gorgeous! and i have room to trim them with this length so i do occasionally, they aren't coated in silicone crap because they are still beautiful after being washed a few times, although i try not to wash them too often maybe once every other week, and i do it with care. make sure you wash them properly! im doing my hair right now and im just so happy with them i had to write a review, sallys extensions suck, as do many others i've tried they always get so ratty and gross! the ends are so thin on them too, but not these!! the quad weft in these extensions just make it super unnoticeable that you have extensions in because it covers short pieces so well, it also blends because its so soft and pretty :) i looked up tons of reviews before buying, yes very expensive but if your hair is very important to you let me tell you its so worth it, guys love the long hair, weather they know its real or not! >;) btw they are called dirty looks extensions now and are no longer headkandy, same quality though :) i will repurchase when i need to for sure !

Okay, so I spent at least $200 on these extensions. They claimed to be 100% human hair, after washing them two times, they ARE NOT HUMAN HAIR. I am extremely disappointed considering I just spent $200 on a company who claims it is real hair.
BE HONEST with your customers, if it was real hair, it wouldnt be NAPPY.
I bought these extensions about two months ago.

These are great hair extensions but I don't feel that they are worth it for the price (AUD$211 incl shipping). I purchased the 20-22" full head (160g) in California Highlights. For reference I have light golden blonde hair (thanks to Clairol Nice n Easy 103 Natural Light Beige (Neutral) blonde, hahaha and it's almost an identical match). This shade is very similar to Jessica Simpson Hairdo in Golden Wheat. California Highlights is multi-tonal but I wouldn't say it is overly highlighted in appearance - my hair isn't highlighted and is more of a solid block of colour but these look very natural and blend seamlessly. I find that this is too much hair for my head so I usually leave a few wefts in the box.
I was confused by the lengths. My hair falls about 1-1.5 inches below my bra strap and these extensions are a good 2 inches longer than my natural hair at their longest point. It feels like they almost touch my belly button when perfectly straight. Curled they blend better. In the HK youtube video the model wearing the 20-22's hair looks the same length as my own natural hair. No real biggie though - I can always get the hairdresser to trim them down a bit.
I have bought other 'Remy' hair extensions and have seriously doubted their Remy claim but Head Kandy do feel like true Remy extensions. Being blonde the hairs are not too thick so they blend in with my fine hair . I have only attacked them once with the heat styler but they curled fine. Smell-wise they did get that processed (wet-dog) smell when curling but were fine after applying MorrocanOil treatment. There was no noticeable matting of my hair after 8 hours wear. If you have the extra money to spend and don't mind perhaps paying slightly more than these are a good choice.
