5 Hair extension myths BUSTED
We get asked a lot of questions every week, many of them from people who have been curious about hair extensions for a while but haven't yet taken the plunge.
Often the reasons behind people being hesitant is that they believe some of the untruths surrounding hair extensions, so we're here to bust some of those myths.
Myth #1: Hair Extensions Are Expensive
We hear this a lot, and totally get it. While good quality extensions aren't cheap, they're certainly a lot cheaper than they were years ago. And if you spend a little more getting quality extensions from the beginning they'll last a lot longer and look a whole lot better - average out the cost of extensions over a few months and they cost little more than a coffee a day (but will make you feel soooo much better!)
Another option is a ponytail extension - these vary in price from $200-$300 but if you look after them properly these can last for years, and are a worthwhile investment that allow you to switch up your look with ease.
Myth #2: Hair Extensions Will Damage My Hair
This is probably one of the biggest myths about hair extensions and it's what stops a lot of women going ahead with them.
However, if you use quality extensions and have them applied by a skilled hair professional - and follow an appropriate hair care routine to avoid tangles and breakage - your hair should remain unscathed and just as healthy as it was prior to extensions.
Myth #3: Hair Extensions Can't Be Styled
Not true! Hair extensions can be worn in many styles, provided you choose natural hair extensions. As they're real hair, you can do anything you like in terms of styling, cutting and colouring. But of course - the more care you take the better the results and the longer your extensions will last.
Myth #4: Hair Extensions Are Difficult to Maintain
Quality hair extensions, correctly applied, don't need regular professional care. Provided you follow the after care instructions provided by your stylist, ongoing maintenance is surprisingly easy and hassle-free!
