I renewed my hair-extensions yesterday. It went very well. Here I want to talk about some of the drawbacks of hair-extension. If you want to get a hair-extension for the first time you should know some facts beforehand.
1- It is really painful the first few days after getting an extension. Specially when you want to sleep on them. It feels like something (the wax) is going through the skin of your head. However, it will go away after 2-3 days. So do not forget that having your head on the pillow is a real challenge for about 2-3 days.
2- When you want to remove them it will be lots of work for the hairdresser. Do not remove them at home. There is a technique which makes it a lot easier to take them out. It took more than an hour for my haidresser to take all my extensions out (about 140 of them).
3- Brushing your hair will not be the same. You can brush your hair for sure but the wax at the roots will make it nearly impossible.
4- Having hair-extensions puts lots of tension on your hair. What happens as a result of that tension, I do not know. My hairdresser has had her extensions for 5 years now. She says nothing has went wrong but who knows for sure!
In the end having extensions is lots of fun. I think it is worth it.
