Ditching hair extensions

Ditching hair extensions

There was a time in the showbiz industry that everybody had long, luscious locks, thanks to the addition of hair extensions. Now, as more and more people decide to ditch the fake hair to go au naturel, we look at the appeal of going back to basics.

There is something very appealing about being able to run a brush all the way through your hair, and standard hair extensions are bonded in with glue – meaning this is impossible. Also, as the hair grows, the glue starts to get further down the strands, meaning that it becomes harder to hide the bond.

Washing hair with extensions can also often prove difficult, while the extensions themselves can sometimes cause lasting damage.

And so the downsides of relying on them for lengthy locks become increasingly apparent.

Celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian have opted to go back to their natural look by getting rid of the hair extensions, leaving their hair looking healthy and still stylish.

Another reason permanent extensions seem to be decreasing in popularity is the amount of temporary solutions now on the market. From clip in extensions to serum that claims to be able to increase hair growth, getting long locks in an instant is no longer a pipe dream.

If you are looking for a more permanent change to your hair, then why not try the options out there to increase hair growth?

The Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum is very reasonably priced and says it can make hair thicker, longer and more volumised. Meanwhile, L’Oreal Elvive’s Fibrology is another option for making fine hair appear thicker. And with shampoo, conditioner, serum and thickening spray in the range, you will be able to get red carpet ready hair at high street prices.
