Hair extensions: When to be careful
Hair extensions can enhance the way you look but may also bring with them unwanted side-effects. Wearing hair extensions gives you extra body, enhanced colour and shine, added length, and a change of look but synthetic hair may also cause problems if you don’t take care of it correctly. Here’s how to wear hair extensions so you get only the benefits and none of the problems that are sometimes associated with their use.
Red carpet looks with minimal side effects
Hair extensions are the must-have beauty enhancements as seen on the heads of actresses, models and celebrities on the red carpet. But some hair extensions can cause hair loss, headaches, and matted hair. Adding hair extensions is a quick way to change your look but do it carefully – don’t make the mistakes some celebrities made by adding too much hair, or using the wrong fixing techniques.

How to avoid hair extension problems
The simplest way to avoid these problems is to use clip-in hair extensions. Sewing or gluing hair extensions to the head is likely to result in damage to the hair and also to the scalp. Clip-in extensions, however, can enhance your locks without the associated stress on your hair. You can also change these types of extensions quickly and easily if you decide you don’t like the look, or you are finding the extension uncomfortable.
Make sure that hair extensions are not attached too tightly, which causes pulling on the scalp and often headaches. If you cannot fix your extensions correctly yourself then have them fitted by a hairdresser to avoid the problems associated with too-tight or ill-fitting hair extensions.
Keep an eye on your hair over the time you wear it to check that it still looks good, and you aren’t developing any tangled or matted patches of hair. If you think the hair extension is losing its looks, get it taken out. Hair extensions are not meant for permanent wear and they need to be changed in order to maintain hair health and beauty. If you are concerned with how your hair looks, pay a quick visit to your hair stylist for a consultation.
Caring for your hair extensions
Maintain the health of your natural hair and your hair extensions by shampooing the clip-in piece regularly with a mild shampoo. Blot the hair with a clean towel and leave to dry flat. Chestnut brown clip in hair extensions may wear out if you wash them normally with your regular shampoo and you will also have problems if you use heated appliances that are too hot. You can cause the extensions to melt when applying GHDs, for example, on the highest heat setting. If you look after your extensions carefully you can enjoy many months of use, but mistreating the extensions will result in a hair disaster. In addition, hair extensions should not be dyed a different shade as the synthetic hair will not take the colour. If you fix your clip-in extensions correctly, pay attention to their upkeep, and take care of them with mild shampooing and careful brushing, you will avoid any potential problems.
