Do Hair Extensions Ruin Your Hair? Myths and Misconceptions

If you’ve ever delved into the internet for information on the world of hair extensions, we can almost guarantee that you will be hit with a wave of negative press. And, to be honest, if you are a newbie to extensions, we do understand that the disconcerting stories can cause a little confusion.

As your personal guardian angels sent from hair heaven, we’re here to set the record straight and give you honest answers to some of the most common misconceptions.

Do Hair Extensions Ruin Your Hair? The Most Common Misconception

Let’s begin with the most common misconception. Do hair extensions ruin your hair? The correct answer is, no, hair extensions will not damage your hair if they are fitted professionally and are cared for well.

In the past, hair extensions did have a rather bad reputation, simply due to the lack of options available. Clip-in extensions were known to be visible in the hair and cause strain on the follicles due to poorly designed clips, which pulled at the root. Whereas, nowadays, there are so many hair extension alternatives which are kind to the hair, causing absolutely no damage.

When considering hair extensions, it is also essential to ensure that you only book in with a reputable technician, who will meticulously fit your new, luscious locks.

Banishing Hair Extension Myths

Although the biggest misconception surrounding hair extensions has been solved, we’re not quite finished our quest to myth-busting just yet. There are still a number of false statements circling the internet that we need to let you in on – you’ll thank us later!

Extensions Will Blend Seamlessly

We’ve all seen our fair share of questionable hair extension photos shared on social media, which most definitely are not the best colour match to natural shades. However, this problem is merely down to either an untrained technician or someone trying to use cheap extensions. If you opt for a technician who is experienced with an excellent reputation, you are guaranteed to achieve a seamless blend.

During your consultation, your chosen technician will spend time getting to know your hair and your personal requirements. They will then colour match extensions and prepare them in time for your fitting appointment. Each strand will be fitted individually, following your hair patterning to ensure results are natural. Even your closest loved ones won’t be able to notice!

Extension Tracks Will Not Show

Of course, some hair extension types need a track. However, it most definitely does not need to be noticeable. If you notice someone with a visible track, then it is almost certain that they are wearing clip-ins and have fitted their extensions themselves. Or it could be that their weft was fitted too high on their head making it visible.

When fitting any form of professional hair extensions, technicians will ensure that absolutely no sign of tracks, bonds or rings can be seen. Extensions will be carefully placed in the ‘safe zone’ which is in the bottom half of the scalp. The ‘safe zone’ is in line with below your eyebrow line, meaning that there will be plenty of hair to camouflage the track.

Extensions Will Not Give You Headaches

A strange but surprisingly common myth regarding extensions. Wearing hair extensions will not give you headaches and if they are, again, its most likely because you’ve attached your own clip-ins or your extensions haven’t been fitted correctly. Those who opt for clip-ins sometimes go a little OTT with the amount that they put in. They try to place too many hairpieces, making the extensions super heavy on the head and causing discomfort.

Extensions that have been professionally fitted, on the other hand, will be weighed and measured to ensure that the additional hair is as unnoticeable and as comfortable as possible. The longer you wear hair extensions, the more natural they will feel, and before you know it, you will no longer feel complete without them!

Extensions Are Totally Safe

Hair extensions are totally safe, and let’s be honest, if they were dangerous, then why would they be so popular? As always, if you spend time researching a reliable, quality technician, then you will have no problems with your extensions. Your hair will not become damaged, brittle, broken, or start to thin – it will remain as healthy as ever.

Extensions Will Not Tangle

Along with extra thickness and length, will come extra care. You wouldn’t leave your natural hair in a matted mess after washing, so why do the same to your extensions? Your hair extensions will not tangle unless you fail to care for them, just the same as if you were dealing with completely natural hair.
