This entry was posted on June 30, 2010.
Are you thinking about getting hair extensions? Many women consider having extensions and indian hair weaves added to get the long, luscious, thick hair that we all want. However, there are several myths about weaves and extensions that make some people reluctant to make the leap. Here are the top five myths along with the real truth.
Myth 1: Hair extensions are bad for your hair.
Truth: Professionally applied hair extensions should do no damage at all. Some women have problem hair either with or without extensions, and these women should get a professional opinion before having extensions put in. However, many women use extensions and find that their hair is as healthy as ever. In fact, wearing extensions can be a great way to grow hair out to a certain length.
Myth 2: Extensions limit your style and your lifestyle.
Truth: Extensions made of indian human hair can be treated like normal hair. You can swim, go into saunas and steam rooms, and wear all of your favorite styles. As long as you use the right brushes and styling products, being careful to avoid the bonds themselves, you and your remy hair should have no limitations whatsoever.
Myth 3: People will know you are wearing perfect locks.
Truth: Perfect locks are applied to look completely natural from every angle. Your hair stylist will cut and style both your hair and your extensions for a seamless, undetectable look.
Myth 4: Extensions are uncomfortable or even painful.
Truth: Most women experience no discomfort or pain all, either while the extensions are being applied or while wearing them. Nobody likes pain, so hair extensions simply would not be as popular as they are if they were a recipe for months of annoyance and discomfort. There are a few exceptions—some women have unusually sensitive skin—but the great majority of people will have no negative sensations whatsoever.
Myth 5: Hair needs a break between extensions.
Truth: Professionally applied and removed extensions can be worn continuously with no damage. In fact, many women like to have extensions removed and replaced at the same appointment. Similarly, there is no ‘expiration date’ on wearing extensions. If your hair looks great and is healthy, you can keep enjoying the same hair-do as long as it works for you.
