If you are looking to get hair extensions it is normal to have questions and concerns. Those who are completely new to the extension scene are likely to have several inquiries. Asking questions and becoming educated is the best way to achieve the results you want! There are many common misunderstandings and misconceptions and we are here to debunk a few of the top myths! Knowing the difference between fact and fiction when it comes to hair extensions is essential when it comes down to making your ultimate choice.
“Extensions stop your natural hair from growing.”
One of the most common rumors swirling around is that hair extensions somehow prevent natural hair from growing. Let us start by saying this is completely false! Although they are attached to your natural hair, hair extensions do not stunt hair growth in any way. In fact, as your hair grows your extensions will grow out alongside your natural hair. This creates the need to make visits to your stylist in order to have your extensions moved back up closer to your roots where they started.
“Hair extensions are damaging.”
The idea that hair extensions are damaging is not completely incorrect. There are some forms of extensions that are very harsh on the hair and often lead to extreme damage. For example, micro-beaded hair extensions have been known to rip natural hair out, leaving a client with uneven and choppy hair. It is essential to work with an experienced stylist who understands the best methods of hair attachment. If extensions are applied and cared for properly there is nothing to worry about!
