Secret Extensions Double Volume Review
The original Secret Extensions were wildly popular when they first arrived on the scene almost three years ago. The convenient headband design proved to be an alluring feature to customers who sought another option over hooks and glue. Now we have a follow-up version called Secret Extensions Double Volume.
There were a number of problems reported by consumers regarding the original version of Secret Extensions. As you can read from my 2014 review of Secret Extensions, consumer complaints included the inability to curl it, shedding during brushing, stingy volume, iffy quality, and limited color options. Some users also said that the headband was not as “secret” as the name implied, but this seemed to be completely subjective and based largely on the user’s hair style.
It would appear that the makers of Secret Extensions have since hit the drawing board to address two of the biggest complaints: volume and color. Indeed, the new incarnation features more volume and 11 different colors, which should allow you to more closely match your hair color than the original. Some of the other issues, such as quality and the inability to curl the extensions, don’t appear to have been addressed in this round.
Overall, I’m glad to see two of the primary complaints with the original Secret Extensions have been addressed, yet maintaining the original pricing structure. That doesn’t mean that some of the original problems won’t be carried through to this version, but if volume and color were your primary concerns, this may be a good time to consider Secret Extensions Double Volume.
Perhaps the biggest problem with Secret Extensions Double Volume is that it is only available online, meaning you can’t examine them in person and hold them up to your hair to see how well they blend with your existing color. If you have streaked hair, or a color that is somewhat out of the norm, your best bet may still be a specialty store.
If you’re still on the fence, you can still take a peek at the original Secret Extensions – which are readily available in stores – to examine their quality.
In the end, reviews for Secret Extensions Double Volume are almost certain to be as mixed as the original product. There are simply too many hairstyles and colors out there for this to appeal to everyone. When this version becomes available in stores, there will be no reason to even consider the original. Until then, however, you’ll have to weigh the benefits of extra volume and more color choices against the ability to see them in person, albeit with less volume and less color options.
You can always find the original Secret Extensions, which now cost only about $23 – keeping in mind the limitations mentioned above.
If you want to try something a bit less risky to your pocketbook, this $9 clip extension set has a respectable 4.2 star rating online.
