Three Of The Most Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Extensions

Here at American Dream, we have a wide variety of extensions for you to purchase. However, we often have customers ask the same kinds of questions incredibly frequently. Especially if you are a first-time extensions wearer, you may have so many questions that you want the answers to - in order to make your purchasing journey much easier. In order to help you, with have put together some of the most frequently asked questions about hair extensions and answered them for you in one place.


  1. Will hair extensions damage my hair?


If applied and cared for correctly, hair extensions will not damage your hair. The wrong hair extensions, poor application and lack of proper maintenance will cause the extensions to damage your hair. Daily care for extensions is very important, and we recommend daily care, along with a little extra care on a weekly basis.


We also recommend that you thoroughly inspect your attachments every five to seven weeks, both in order to enable you to enjoy your long hair as long as possible, but also to avoid tangled attachments and unnecessary wear on both the extensions and your natural hair. It is also important that you attach and remove your hair extensions properly, which is why it is often wise to seek advice from a professional.


      2. Will my hair look natural?


If styled correctly, hair extensions can look very natural and you can’t even tell the difference between them and your natural hair from looks alone. However, if your shade does not match, and the thickness and length aren’t right, this is normally a huge giveaway that you are wearing extensions. The goal is to balance the weight of your own hair so that your extensions look like natural hair growth.


      3. How long will the hair extensions last?


The duration of how long your hair extensions will last is hugely dependent on the kind of extensions and the application method you choose. For example, if you decide to purchase temporary methods such as clip-in pieces, wefts and weaves - these can be taken in and out each day or week. On the other hand, if you decide to have more permanent extensions such as micro rings or micro-bonds, these are worn continuously, for many months.


Generally speaking, you should expect a fitting of hair extensions to last around 3-4 months before the extensions need to be removed. While the extensions are fitted, your hair will continue to grow naturally, and the bonds will slowly move further and further away from your scalp. It is important to ensure that the extensions are removed after this period of time, in order to protect your own natural hair from becoming tangled or damaged in any way.
