HAIR EXTENSION MYTHS

Hair extensions are the quickest way to enhance one’s hair length, volume, and overall look. However, there are several myths encircling hair extensions that can make people to think twice before trying them. In this blog, The Hair Real shall throw light on the truth behind them.

MYTH 1: HAIR EXTENSIONS DAMAGE YOUR HAIR

One of the primary myths about hair extensions is that they could damage your natural hair. It looks like this myth has its roots from the fact that some people face hair damage after using extensions that were not made from 100% Natural Human Hair i.e. Synthetic Hair. Some people have also experienced hair breakage or loss after using certain types of extensions, particularly those that are poorly installed or maintained.

The truth is that hair extensions made from 100% Natural Human Hair, when properly installed and cared-for will not damage your natural hair. In fact, all of The Hair Real’s extensions are made from 100% Single Donor Human Hair authentically sourced from the temples of south India. The Hair Real’s Real Hair Extensions can actually help protect your natural hair by reducing the amount of heat styling and chemical processing you need to do to achieve your desired look.

MYTH 2: HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE ONLY FOR PEOPLE WITH LESS HAIR VOLUME

Another widespread myth regarding hair extensions is that they are only suitable for people with less hair volume, i.e. those with thin or fine hair. Yes, for those with thin hair, hair extensions can certainly be used to add volume. But, the fact is that many people with thick or curly hair choose to use hair extensions to help manage their hair and create more styling options.

Regardless of your natural hair texture or thickness, hair extensions can also be used to add length or create more intricate hairstyles, e.g. Coloured Hair Streaks, Messy Buns, Bangs, etc.

MYTH 3: HAIR EXTENSIONS DO NOT LOOK REAL

Another misunderstanding about hair extensions is that they don’t look real. This myth likely stems from the fact that some people have seen extensions that do not blend well with their natural hair. That is because they were synthetic or low-quality extensions.

As said earlier, The Hair Real’s 100% Natural Human Hair Extensions are of the highest quality. When installed properly, they can look incredibly natural and seamless. There are many different types of extensions available, including Clip-In, Tape-In, and Sew-In extensions that can be customised by our experts to match your natural hair colour, texture, and thickness.

MYTH 4: HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE COSTLY

Yes, it is true that hair extensions can be expensive.

Extensions are made in the factory. A Wholesale Distributor procures them and in turn distributes them among many dealers. Anyway, when they reach your hands, it is either from a salon or a hair stylist. Imagine that the factory directly delivers the hair extensions of your choice straight to your doorstep at roughly half the prices you would get at a salon or from a hair stylist. Yes, The Hair Real is offering you all types of Natural Human Hair Extensions at Factory Prices. For example, a salon or a hair stylist shall charge at least ₹10,000/- for a 16” 7 Set Volumiser. You can get the same for just ₹4,999/- at The Hair Real.  We also offer a variety of payment options. The Hair Real has been in the Human Hair Business for over 30 years and is focused on making hair extensions more accessible to a wider range of people.

MYTH 5: HAIR EXTENSIONS REQUIRE A LOT OF MAINTENANCE

Only few types of hair extensions require more maintenance. Most extensions, that too if made from 100% Natural Human Hair can be taken care of easily with regular washing and styling.

For example, clip-in extensions can be removed and washed separately from your natural hair, while tape-in and sew-in extensions can be washed and styled the same way as your natural hair.
