Hi, this is Vrinda. I have been receiving a lot of queries from all the lovely ladies out there asking if there are any after effects of hair extensions, as in like “is it really safe to wear hair extensions?” So I thought of writing this blog to give some real facts and bust some myths.
MYTH 1. DO HAIR EXTENSION DAMAGE YOUR REAL HAIR?
Clip On extensions & Micro Ring loops are really gentle on your hair. This is because clips and micro beads are silicon lined and give a gentle but firm grip. Its like clipping any normal clip or broach on your hair. Micro Ring Loops are installed without any glue or heat. These extensions are installed in your hair by adding the micro loop having a weight of only 0.8gms or 1gm each. Needless to say you MUST consult a hairstylist who is trained in hair extensions to advise you which type of hair extension is suitable for your hair and your lifestyle.
MYTH 2. IT MAY NOT BLEND WITH YOUR REAL HAIR –
This is so not true when you are talking about real human or remy hair extensions. Synthetic or artificial clip ins do look fake & don’t blend in real hair because they have an extra shine and are thicker and heavier than normal hair. Kannekalon extensions on the other hand are heat resistant and look more like real hair inspite of being artificial.
Whereas, if you buy 100 % human hair extensions whether its clip-ons or ponytail extensions it will blend in your hair pretty well.
Synthetic hair cannot be an alternative. If you want volume and length you should definitely go for real or Remy Hair Extensions that will blend in your hair and give you a natural look.
MYTH 3. ARE HAIR EXTENSIONS HIGH MAINTENANCE?
The answer to this is NO!
They are not high maintenance! You can wash clip-ins at home using a mild shampoo and conditioner. You don’t have to wash them every time you wear. You have to wash them after you wear them 10-15 times. Applying conditioner to them and rinsing after 30 minutes will ensure that they look soft and shiny and will be tangle free.
Additionally you can apply hair serum to them to style them and take good care.
All this takes only about 15 minutes of your time in a month( depends upon how frequently you use your extensions).
MYTH 4. HAIR EXTENSIONS TAKE TOO LONG TO INSTALL?
Once you get used to wearing hair extensions it will only take 2-3 mins to wear them. Hair extension can be an ideal solution for long and lustrous hair in an instant. They will be your best friends for life.
MYTH 5. HAIR EXTENSIONS MAY BECOME VISIBLE
This can be true if you apply it incorrectly. You can check our videos to learn how to wear extensions without visibility. Also, micro ring loops are masterly installed and mixed flawlessly into your hair. No one will be able to make out that you have installed extensions.
MYTH 6. HAIR EXTENSIONS CANNOT BE STYLED –
This is probably one of the biggest myths about hair extensions. Real hair extensions can be styled as you do to your natural hair. If you don’t want to damage your real hair by styling them you should definitely go for extensions. But make sure to invest in good quality of hair so it serves you the best by giving your hair a natural feel.
So if you are looking for volume and length instantly, we are just a call away.
