Review - canadahair.ca 14" Clip-in Extensions - Standard Thickness (burgundy)
I decided to test out some extensions from canadahair.ca. After sifting through their website, I ended up choosing some basic 14" clip-ins, just to see what the quality was going to be when they arrived.
I had attempted to research this company before purchasing, but there wasn't much that I could find, that wasn't being shown via the company itself. Basically, I couldn't find any real reviews on this company.
Red flags were set off.
So let's spend our money!
Below, you can see a screenshot of the details given by canadahair.ca, for their clip-in extensions.
So, I ordered up two sets of 14" Burgundy clip-in extensions, ("standard" thickness). Based off of the weight description, my plan was to sew together the two sets of hair to make one fuller set of extentions.
You can see that the length is true to 14", they're just not full all the way, from top to bottom. Both sets are the same in that respect, and the thickness really dies off at around the 10" mark.
I'm ok with this, as I have other extension sets that are full from top to bottom, and they're too heavy to do most styles with and would need to be layered anyways. So, unless you're going for a blunt haircut look, having extensions taper off is ok in my books.
Above, you can see the clips used in each set, as well as the overall construction of the weft. These are not constructed very well, but they're not horrible either. It's really just two thin wefts of hair sewn together with a single zig zag stitch and some of the crappiest clips on the market sewn on to the wefts. There is nothing added to create secure/stable wefts, like lace or ribbon. You won't find any of that on these. Nope.
Where the true problem comes with these extensions, in my opinion, is the claim that these are "remy". I've taken some macro shots of the ends of the hair. You can clearly see that there are roots at the bottom of the extensions, making these absolutely NOT remy.
I've run my fingers up and down multiple strands of hair, to try and determine if the hair has been stripped of it's cuticles...and that seems to be the case, but I can't say 100%.
In the description given on their website, they tell us that the 'standard thickness' set of clip-ins will weigh approximately 85g from a total of 7 wefts with 16 clips.
I've shown here, the weight of each set, including the clips.
Set #1 weighed in at 91.4g
Set #2 weighed in at 93.4g
Each clip weighs approximately 1.1g . There are 16 clips in a set, making 17.6g of weight attributed to the clips alone.
Total weight of hair per set:
Set #1: 91.4g - 17.6g (clips) = 73.8g total weight of hair.
Set #2: 93.4g - 17.6g (clips) = 75.8g total weight of hair.
So, this falls in line with what they have stated for weight. They're not claiming to give you 85g of hair, they're claiming to give you a set of extensions that weigh approximately 85g @ 7 wefts with 16 clips. It just would be nicer if they clarified that on their website, on the purchase page.
Now...the next problem...is today's current price. When I ordered these extensions for myself, they were $59.00 CAD each. When I go to the website today, it says these very same extensions are $109.00 CAD.
No. Just no.
These extensions aren't worth the $59.00 CAD...and they're definitely NOT worth $109.00 CAD. Not even remotely, nowhere near...no.
These extensions are not what they claim. They claim to be 100% human indian remy hair. They are not. This is the single most important attribute to any hair extension. Non-remy, remy, virgin...these are all qualities that determine the price of extensions, other than length.
Can I recommend these extensions, or buying anything from canadahair.ca?
If you don't care about the quality and if you're not worried about whether or not they're remy extensions, or maybe if you just need extensions for taking selfies or a quick photo shoot or something. With them not being remy, these extensions will most likely become a matted, rats nest, regardless of the cuticle being stripped or not. These will not hold up over any length of time...I'd be surprised if they looked decent at the end of a full days wear. Either way, if none of those are a concern for what your needs are, there are still cheaper options out there than these extensions. Especially at their current price.
I can't, by any means, tell you what to do...but I can offer you my humble opinion. And my opinion is...to run. Steer clear of canadahair.ca for any of your hair extensions needs. Take your hard earned cash money and invest it elsewhere. Even Aliexpress has some nicer hair than this.
But, if you still choose to purchase hair from canadahair.ca, and you've made it this far in to this post, at least you'll have a better understanding of what you're putting your money towards. And that's all I'm here to accomplish.
In the end, for myself...I would never, ever, buy from canadahair.ca ever again...and I'm not going to.
