This week's featured staff pick is from Megan from our marketing department.

I've been wearing hair extensions on and off since I began working for Donna Bella. Even though I already have lots of hair naturally, I like extensions because I can add color and dimension without coloring my hair.

I’m wearing 18” Tape-Ins in colors #2 and #4 (2 packs of each). My own hair is naturally between #6 and #8 and I wanted to add some low lights/quasi-ombre.  After the extensions were installed, I almost had so much hair I that I wasn't sure I would know what to do with it. My stylist gave me some layers to help thin it out.

Keeping my hair looking good is a priority to me, but I don’t let hair care eat up too much of my time. I have places to be and things to see! Here’s what I do to keep my hair from taking over my life.

I wash my hair about 3 times a week. I can get my hair to stay fresh that long if I don’t add a lot of styling product. I find that my hair extensions don’t really need much product to look good anyway. I also spruce up my hair with dry shampoo as needed, which only takes a few minutes. This might not work for all hair types, but it works for me.

My shower routine with hair extensions really isn't much different than normal. I just use a non-lathering shampoo and leave conditioner in my hair for a few minutes before rinsing. When I'm done, I dry my hair in a tee shirt because it's gentler on my hair.

Although I wish I could spend an hour each morning on my hair, I also love sleeping in. To compromise, I do as much as I can the night before. I brush my hair through and sleep with a silky scarf to keep my hair from getting frizzy. When I wake up, I usually just do a few finishing touches and I’m good to go.

My hair extensions are so fun -- I love having more hair. They're pretty easy to take care of and they make me feel great.
