Hair extensions are not a one size fits all.  Some methods work for certain hair types and won't work for others.

Some hair extension methods can run nearly double the cost of others.  What is the difference?

Feel FREE to leave this site and just go schedule your hair extensions at the first salon you find.  But, maybe you should read what a recent visitor said in an Email to our Editor:

 "I didn't read info on Hair Extensions Exposed , so I didn't have the information to check out the stylist.  I am very sad because now my hair is extremely damaged and I have had to spend over one thousand dollars more going to other stylists to fix the damage from the first stylist--that I did not check out.  It turns out that the first stylist used an inappropriate hair extension method for my hair, and she didn't have experience with my type of hair"

Letter to the Editor Hair Extensions Exposed

Your hair grows about 1/2-inch per month.  At that rate it could take you years to grow your hair out from a short length to a longer length.

Fact: Every method of Hair Extensions can cause permanent damage to your natural hair?

Does this mean you shouldn't get hair extensions?


Absolutely NOT!!  In Hair Extensions Exposed we explain how the natural hair can become damaged and what steps you can take to avoid damage.

Fact:  There is a hair extension method that will work with thin hair, thick hair, curly hair, thinning hair, straight hair, damaged hair and more.  

There is not one BEST hair extension method that will work for everyone.  What will work for your hair, may not work for someone else.  This is why it is very important to schedule several different hair extension consultations with stylists that offer different methods so you can compare and decide which method is best for your hair.  In Hair Extensions Exposed there are details of over 40 different hair extension methods along with an entire chapter on how to prepare for your hair extension consultations.  Do you know the important questions that you need to ask your stylist?

Fact:  Attaching and removing hair extensions requires special training and education.

If you end up going to a hair extension stylist that has no training and is inexperienced with hair extensions, you could end up with permanently damaged hair.  In Hair Extensions Exposed we cover all the steps to check up on your hair extension stylist.  How do you know if they have received proper training?

Fact:  There are no regulations or imposed standards in the human hair industry.  There are many unscrupulous suppliers.

Where does the hair come from for hair extensions?  In Hair Extensions Exposed we cover all the different sources and qualities of human hair that is used for hair extensions.

Fact:  Hair Extensions require extra work on your part to maintain and keep healthy.

Many of the different hair extension companies advertise that you treat hair extensions just like your natural hair, with no extra special maintenance required.  The fact is that long hair requires extra work.  It takes longer to wash, condition, blow dry and style.  If you don't take care of long hair--especially hair extensions--you will quickly have damaged hair.  In Hair Extensions Exposed we cover some of the maintenance requirements that will help keep your extensions in tip top shape.


Fact:  No type of hair extension is completely undetectable.

Most hair extension salons advertise with the words "completely undetectable"  If extension hair is attached to your natural hair, there will be a visible point of attachment.  The skill of the hair extension stylist will eventually determine if the extensions are well disguised with your own hair.  Many hair extension methods require the stylist to attend 1-3 day hands on training classes to learn the skills needed to attach, remove and blend in hair extensions.  How do you know if your stylist has had training?     

Hair extensions have come so far today that they are really undetectable, when attached by an experienced hair extension stylist.  You can get beautiful long hair just like all those celebrities and no one will know you are wearing hair extensions- unless of course you tell them.

But, there is much more involved than simply scheduling an appointment  and getting hair extensions.  If you go with the wrong stylist or pick the wrong method you could end up with damaged hair and spend a lot of money.


But wait...running to the first salon you find to get hair extensions may not be the best idea.  In Hair Extensions Exposed, we will tell you what can go wrong if you pick the wrong hair extensions or worse, the wrong stylist.

You see, getting hair extensions is not like going to get a hair cut or even a perm or color treatment for your hair.  Hair extensions can directly affect the health of your hair follicles, hair and scalp.

But that doesn't mean you can't get hair extensions.  You just need to take a few precautionary steps to make sure the extensions are done right and are suited for your hair type.

Hair Extensions involve attaching tiny strands of human or synthetic hair directly to your natural hair by one of many different methods available today.  If the extensions are not attached and removed properly you could end up with seriously damaged hair, not to mention that you will also be broke since you will still have to pay the hair stylist for the extensions.

By The Way......Most hair stylists that offer hair extensions will make you sign a disclaimer that they are not responsible for any sort of hair damage and that with hair extensions, many things can go wrong.  The hair stylist doesn't know exactly how your hair will respond to hair extensions.  Your hair could be fine, and it could not be fine.   It is probably best to get your hair extensions done with a stylist that has many hair extension clients.
