Hair Extensions Myths Debunked

Hair Extensions Myths Debunked

If you've ever looked up hair extension recommendations and advice on Google, we're sure the results can be confusing or overwhelming. Hair extensions require a certain level of commitment, but it's not as frightening as it may appear!

We're here to dispel some of the most frequent hair extension myths and present you with the facts. From 'do hair extensions damage your hair?' to 'how do you keep extensions in outstanding condition?' we'll answer all of your questions. We guarantee you'll enjoy hair extensions as much as we do towards the end!

Do Hair Extensions Harm Your Hair?

Let's begin with one of the most common misconceptions. Are hair extensions harmful to your hair? We'd be as wealthy as Kylie Jenner if we had a dollar for every time we were asked this question. If applied and cared for properly, hair extensions will not affect your hair.

The first step in getting hair extensions is to schedule a consultation with a trained and skilled hair stylist. They will not only be able to apply the hair extensions correctly, but they will also be able to advise you on the best procedure for your hair type and goals. You're well on your way to getting your dream hair with the right hair extensions and application.

Our myth-busting mission isn't yet complete, even though we've tackled the most widespread misconception concerning hair extensions. We need to educate you on a few more false claims that are making the rounds on the internet — you'll thank us later!

Hair Extensions That Blend In

We've all seen our fair share of shady hair extension photos floating around on social media, and it's usually due to a bad colour match. This error is frequently caused by a lack of consultation with a trained stylist or the usage of low-cost extensions.

In time for your next appointment, the hair extensions will be color-matched and prepped. Each piece will be meticulously placed to give natural effects, following your natural hair flow. Your closest friends and family will have no idea you're wearing extensions!


Headaches and Hair Extensions


Hair extensions should not give you headaches, and if they do, it's most likely because you didn't apply your clip-ins properly or your hair extensions weren't properly fitted.


Hela clip-ins come with five sections of hair, giving you instant volume and length. Although we enjoy a full-on glam look, it's crucial to know what works best for your particular hair type.


Start with the larger pieces and work your way through the set until you achieve the necessary thickness. It can be uncomfortable if your hair extensions are too hefty for your hair.


Are Hair Extensions Safe?


When placed by a skilled stylist and properly maintained for, Hela hair extensions are 100% safe to use and will not harm your natural hair. Your hair will not become damaged, brittle, broken, or thin if you take the time to discover and meet with a respected hairdresser; it will remain as healthy as it has always been!

Hair extensions should not be easily tangled.


Of course, added thickness and length will necessitate a little extra care, but with Hela Hair’s high-quality Remy AAA+ hair extensions, you won't have to worry about tangling unless you don't properly care for them. The hair is smooth to the touch, easier to handle, and less likely to tangle because the cuticle is aligned.


It's Simple to Maintain


If you ask us for our most important hair extension advice, we will always urge you not to miss your stylist's maintenance appointments! We recommend that you visit the salon every 4 to 6 weeks to have your permanent hair extensions moved up closer to the scalp.


This will ensure that they stay in good shape, last as long as possible, and do not harm your natural hair.


Hair Extensions Should Be Washed


Always listen to your stylist's recommendations and use just the items that they suggest. Check out our recommended hair care range if you're not sure which products perform best with Hela hair extensions. Conditioner should only be used on the mid-lengths and ends of the hair for the best results, although shampoo can be used on the entire head, including the roots. Your extensions may start to slip or get loose if you apply too much conditioner to your roots.
