All You Need to Know About Hair Extension Cautions








Are you planning to go in for hair extensions to inject life, fullness, and length into your sad looking locks? Be known that the health hazards of this beauty treatment outweigh its rewards.

"There are people who use hair extensions without complaint. But extensions add excess weight, pulling on the hair, which can lead to damage to the hair follicles," Dr. Orly Avitzur Medical Advisor for Consumer Reports tells ABC News.

Hair extensions may cause patchy hair loss, blinding headaches and sometimes permanent damage. The procedure may cost anywhere between a couple of hundred dollars to several thousand.

Experts warn you to make sure whether the stylist attaches extensions using a method that is suitable for your hair type. You may develop problems if the hair extensions are connected too tightly or weigh too much.

The weight and the tension combine and place a strain on your hair follicles. This combined action causes your follicles to stretch out which results in hair loss.
The above process is known as Traction Alopecia, which causes permanent damage to hair follicles and prevents hair regrowth.
