Question: Hello! I got a full head of extensions not too long ago and I have had nothing but compliments about them.
I would like to know if anyone has a problem like I have had. My extensions have totally fallen out with my own hair attached to them . I have lost about 12 of them so far.
It's like my own hair has rejected the extensions.
Please advise me what to do
Answer: I would be very concerned if your natural hair was falling out along with the hair extensions. It is very normal to lose a few extensions here and there, but it is a totally different thing if your natural hair is also falling out with the extensions still attached.
Basically what this means is the hair extensions are causing so much stress on your normal hair that the weight of the hair extension is pulling out your natural hair. This is not your hair rejecting the extensions. You could end up with permanent hair loss.
Have you checked back with the stylist that put the extensions in? What has he/she recommended? Most stylist would recommend removing the extensions immediately.
If I were you, I would get a second professional opinion if your stylist doesn't think there is any problem. You are running the risk of permanent damage.
If you love the look of hair extensions, there are alternatives to the human hair extensions. For example, synthetic hair extensions weigh about 1/3 the weight of human hair and look just as natural as human hair. Maybe this would be a route for you to go.
