And while there are definitely people who experience hair loss as a direct result of extensions, many have no difficulties at all. "Everybody can wear hair extensions," explained Angelo David, owner of the Angelo David Salon in NYC, adding, "the formula is getting them to the right extension." To see more, just read on.
Whatever the case, there are quite a few stories of women who have faced disastrous results, such as Miley Ramos of Delray Beach, Fla. After using clip-on extensions for about three months, the 22-year-old's hair started falling out. "I was freaking out. I thought I was going to lose my hair by the time I was 30," she revealed. Ramos's hair grew back after a year, but for 25-year-old Chioma Odimegwu of NYC, six years after her hair loss, some strands have yet to resurface. "If I could go back in time," she told GMA, "I would appreciate my natural hair so much more."
Some women's tales end with Rogaine or hair transplants, but hopefully if you do your research and ensure you're getting the right extensions and application method for your hair type, your problems should be far and few between. Also, having the extensions professionally removed can be an integral step in keeping your natural hair where it should be: on your head.
