Hair extensions can be greatly beneficial; they are a quick way of adding length and density to the hair, making it appear longer, thicker and full of life. They require much less commitment than hair pieces or wigs, and can be easily applied and removed. However, if hair extensions aren’t applied properly they can cause significant damage to the hair, and could potentially cause hair loss form breakage.

While hair extensions that have been properly applied are harmless, those that use certain forms of attachment can result in extreme damage. When they are not applied in the correct manner, the extensions tug and pull on the natural hair, causing unnecessary strain on the strands of hair and resulting in premature breakage from half way up the hair shaft or total loss of the strand from the root.

Hair extensions do add length and density to the back and sides of the hair. This makes them ideal for those going through temporary or partial hair loss, as they don’t need to be applied all over (unlike a wig). However, they can’t be attached to the top of the scalp, so aren’t the solution for those suffering from hair loss at the top of the head.

For those who are looking for a quick fix to thicken or elongate their hair, hair extensions are the way to go. There is no need to worry about damage providing they have been applied correctly, so, for more information on the hair extensions available at Bloomsbury of London (which will never damage the hair) call us today on 020 7404 6040.
