3 Common Myths About Hair Extensions

hair extensions don't damage hair

You’ve seen the way hair extensions and hair weaves can elevate a look by giving fullness to otherwise lifeless hair. Perhaps you’ve even looked up some articles online or talked to a stylist or friend about getting hair extensions. Still, some concerns may be holding you back from trying out hair extensions, from fusion hair extensions to skin wefted hair. Those concerns are probably valid – it’s important to take good care of your hair – but here are a few myths about hair extensions that may help you make your decision.

They Damage Hair

There are a few different types of hair extensions, so it’s important to make the distinction between them. Among them are clip-in hair extensions, heat fusion hair extensions, cold fusion hair extensions, skin weft hair extensions, and microbead hair extensions. Each of these feature a different method of application. Clip-in extensions are the least damaging, but they also offer the least amount of versatility. They’re great for adding volume, highlights, or length and are the easiest to apply yourself. Heat fusion hair extensions are potentially the most damaging to hair, because many types use a wax adhesive and can be messy but don’t have to be if you consult a professional. With proper application, hair extensions will not damage your hair but enhance it.

hair extensions are not painful

They are Painful

With advancing hair care technology, hair extensions have continued to evolve. If anyone tells you that the application or wearing of hair extensions is painful, chances are that they applied the hair extensions incorrectly or that their stylist may be untrained or ungifted with hair extensions. If you have them applied at a salon and experience any discomfort, it’s important to go back and have them adjusted. Stylists should be trained and certified to apply, style, and maintain hair extensions pain-free.

They Prevent An Active Lifestyle

Hair extensions are meant to be an extension of natural hair, so when applied and maintained correctly, they will not get in the way of even the most active lifestyle. Swimmers, rock climbers, runners, and triathletes can all wear hair extensions with ease. Regular maintenance is important to keep them in shape for these activities as well as day-to-day life, but the maintenance is something your stylist can teach you to do at home. Home care is important to take care of them, just as you would your natural hair, but it can work easily into even the most busy routines.
