Top 5 Questions About Hair Extensions

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 194

There are a lot of myths and false information printed about hair extensions, often based on out of date information, or just plain wrong!

Here's some of the most common questions about extensions - both real human hair and artificial - and the truth behind them.

1: Will my hair stop growing as fast if I wear a Hair Extension?

NO: Adding extensions has nothing to do with your natural hair growth - it grows from the roots and will continue to grow at the same rate. How fast your hair grows depends on your genetics, age and overall health.

2: Will Hair Extensions damage my hair?

NO (usually): Good quality extensions applied properly will not damage your hair or scalp. However, some poor quality clip in extensions may use cheap clips that pull on your hair, and glued or otherwise permanent extensions need to be applied by someone trained to do it properly. Clip in extensions are often safer, especially for first time users, as they are not worn all the time. However, longer extensions can be heavy, and one that is too heavy has the potential to pull on your hair. If you are a first time hair extension user, go for a shorter version, and get a good quality one with a lot of clips to spread the weight over your scalp.

3: Do I need to visit a Stylist on regular basis?

IT DEPENDS: This depends on the types of extensions you use. Ones that are glued or otherwise bonded to your hair will need regular maintenance, as the look will change as your hair grows and they move away from the scalp. Clip in extensions can be easily removed and adjusted, so you don't really need a Stylist at all. You may want to use a stylist for the first fitting, as real human hair extensions can be cut to suit, but afterwards they are easy to use at home.

4: Are Hair Extensions made from hair taken from dead people?

NO: They are either artificial, or are taken from people who have cut their hair and then sold it. The best comes from people who have not had their hair permed or dyed before it was cut.

5: Can I curl, straighten or style Extensions?

YES: You can easily curl, straighten, dye, cut and style real human hair extensions - that's why they are more popular than artificial versions. These will often melt under hear from curling tongs and do not generally accept dyes, so makes sure you know what you are buying, and get them from a reputable source, if you want to be able to do this.
