Hair extensions... - February 11th 2010, 04:59 AM

I've been using clip-in Remy hair extensions throughout the course of the past year or so, and I've noticed that--with use of the extensions--my own hair seems to have become increasingly thinner. I finally realized that the way in which I've been applying them has been causing tension on my scalp, and thus, essentially PULLING my hairs out of their roots. I've noticed two areas in particular in which the hair has thinned out significantly (I also have this nasty habit of scratching my scalp and pulling out the hairs in these areas--yes, I know, please don't laugh/judge...I tend to have major anxiety issues). In any case, I've resolved to apply the extensions more gently and keep my hands/nails OFF my scalp...needless to say, I'm scared as to whether or not the hair will grow back (I'm assuming that it will--I mean, I pluck my eyebrows and the hairs grow back...so wouldn't it inevitably be the same situation with a head of hair?).

Any answers/suggestions/advice would be incredibly helpful right now

Hey I think the best thing would be to stop using the clip in hair extentions all together so that your hair can get strong again. I know that might be hard but in the long run it will make your natural hair stronger, and so healthier and look better x

The weight of the extensions is what's causing it so maybe you could try trimming them so they're a bit shorter and don't weigh as much if you're desperate to keep wearing them. BUT the best thing to do would be to stop wearing them and let you hair go back to it normal, healthy self.

Also, thickening shampoo would help your hair get thick again but if you keep wearing the extensions then there's sort of no point to it.
