Top 5 Myths about Hair Extensions

24 Jun Top 5 Myths about Hair Extensions

Are you thinking about getting hair extensions? Many women want to get the long, luscious, thick hair that extensions can create, but they have been put off by a several myths about extensions that make some people reluctant to make the leap.

Lets take a look at them here and get to the truth with ONE’s Hair Extension Specialist Monica Securo.

Myth 1: Aren’t hair extensions are bad for your hair?

Truth: Professionally applied hair extensions should do no damage at all. Some women have problem hair either with or without extensions, and these women should get a professional opinion before having extensions put in. However, many women use extensions and find that their hair is as healthy as ever. In fact, wearing extensions can be a great way to grow hair out to a certain length.

Myth 2: Don’t extensions limit your style and your lifestyle?

Truth: Extensions made of 100% Remy quality human hair can be treated like normal hair. You can swim, go into saunas and steam rooms, and wear all of your favorite styles. As long as you use the right brushes and styling products, being careful to avoid the bonds themselves, you and your remy hair should have no limitations whatsoever.

Myth 3: Won’t people will know you are wearing extensions?

Truth: Our Showpony Tape extensions are applied to look completely natural from every angle. Our stylist Jen will cut and style both your hair and your extensions for a seamless, undetectable look.

Myth 4: Aren’t extensions are uncomfortable or even painful?

Truth: When applied by a professional you will experience no discomfort or pain all, either while the extensions are being applied or while wearing them. Nobody likes pain, so hair extensions simply would not be as popular as they are if they were a recipe for months of annoyance and discomfort. There are a few exceptions—if someone inexperienced has put them in they can pull the hair to tightly and this will cause pinching, so be sure to get your extensions put in by someone who has been properly trained!

Myth 5: Will my hair need a break between extensions? Will I have to buy new ones each time?

Truth: Professionally applied and removed extensions can be worn continuously with no damage. In fact, our Showpony extensions are reusable and will last a long time, so when your hair has grown longer, so you don’t need to buy new ones, you would just simply need to come into the salon and we can ‘move them up’ with a short appointment. Similarly, there is no ‘expiration date’ on wearing extensions . If your hair looks great and is healthy, you can keep enjoying the same hair-do as long as it works for you.
