Hair Extensions and Hair Loss

Hair Weaves

There are a lot of options out there for hair extensions. Extensions can add length, thickness, and weight to your existing hair. Contrary to popular belief, hair extensions are a popular option for men as well as women. Many men use them to add thickness to their thinning locks.

Although hair extensions can be a quick way to improve the look of your hair after hair loss, there may be different types that can pose significant risks and therefore cause more damage to your hair in the long run. Below you will find some of the different types of hair extensions on the market as well as the effect they may have on your hair.

Hair weaves are typically applied to the hair by braiding natural hair with strands of synthetic hair onto the braids in rows. These hair extensions are typically made with human or synthetic hair, and a full head of weave or just a few tracks can achieve your desired look. However, this method may cause damage if done incorrectly.

As the hair weaves are applied to your own hair, the ones that are high in density may put a strain on your natural hair and therefore cause breakage at the roots if they are too heavy. Also, if you opt for the cheaper, synthetic extensions rather than natural human hair, it may cause scalp irritation and even damage your natural hair.

Clip-in Extensions

In the past, clip-in extensions were the best option for quickly achieving longer and thicker hair. They are attached using small clips that are applied to the root of existing hair.

Clip-ins are usually visible through thin hair and are also not as secure as other hair extension methods, so they may fall out if they are applied by an inexperienced stylist. If the extensions are too heavy, they will also cause damage to the existing hairs and may cause permanent hair loss.

To help minimise the damage that can be caused by hair extensions, clip-in extensions should never be worn to bed and, when possible, should be used only occasionally.

Glue-in Extensions

As with any hairstyling procedures, it’s important that you do your research and go to an experienced hairstylist who uses high-quality products. Although the cost will most likely be higher, the risk will be much lower.

Glue-in extensions involve applying glue to the extensions and then attaching them to the base of the natural hair. This is a more effective method of applying hair extensions, and you do not need to remove them before going to sleep.

However, this method can also cause damage to the existing hair if done incorrectly. Over time, heavy extensions may lead to traction alopecia, a type of hair loss resulting from constant strain on the scalp and hair.

If you are concerned that your hair extensions may be the cause of your hair loss, schedule a consultation with the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic for your complimentary consultation.
