Seven myths about hair extensions

Seven myths about hair extensions

Maybe you’re one of the many people that has heard horror stories about hair extensions? Hair that has been collected from the floors of hair salons and re-used, hair that has completely fallen out or hair that has just stopped growing altogether. Nightmares. Rapunzel has collected together some of these myths, and sorted out the truths to give you a good night’s sleep. 

1. If I get hair extensions my hair will stop growing! 
Keep calm. This is a myth. Your hair will grow as usual, hair extensions do not affect your hair’s growth. This also means that according to the speed your hair grows that you may need to re-attach your fastening points to keep a natural look and provide less wear and tear on your hair. Some people’s hair grows faster and others slower, this has nothing to do with hair extensions.

2. Hair extensions will damage my natural hair! 
This is a common myth which can be true if you don’t do things right!  Hair extensions shouldn’t damage your hair, but it is important to attach and remove them in the correct way, to take care of your hair and to use tools designed for the purpose. Most important in this procedure is to attach your hair correctly. The hairs that you use at your fastening points should come from the same area of your head and be attached on all the hairs in the strand instead of just a few, otherwise they risk breaking.

3. Hair extensions demands regular care at a hair salon. 
A commonly held belief about hair extensions is that they demand professional care at a salon on a regular basis. To take care of your hair and to get professional help with it is good, but not a must. You can do a lot of this at home on your own. At Rapunzel we have tried to give our clients greater opportunities to be able to take care of their hair in a professional way themselves. By offering you the tools and the knowledge needed, we give you the chance to have long, flowing hair for a longer period of time.  
Of course, seeking professional help for attachment, removal or care of your hair extensions is also an option. Talk to your hairdresser for advice or visit one of our salons.

4. It’s expensive to do hair extensions! 
You no longer have to pay a fortune for good quality long hair. 
At Rapunzel we offer you a wide range of hair extensions in different price ranges and several top qualities, it is all about choice. Depending on which quality you choose the price differs.

5. The hair used in a hair extension comes from the salon floor or dead people. 
The hair used in a hair extension from Rapunzel is genuine, but comes neither from dead people nor the salon floor. The hair in our hair extensions comes from people just like you and me; living people all around the world that have chosen to sell or donate their hair. Believe it or not, we get people coming in to our salons all the time asking to sell us their hair!

6. People will see that I wear extensions!

Yes, of course they will show! Going into a salon with short/thin hair and coming out with long, thick locks will certainly get noticed!!  You will have traffic-stopping hair!  But people will not discover any visible edges. Hair extensions attached using today’s techniques mean that it is almost invisible to the human eye. You can also affect how visible your hair extension will be; where and how you attach your strand is important in this process, but also how you take care of it; e.g. tangled fastening points don’t blend in as well as untangled.
