Improper Fusion Hair Extension Removal Escalates Hair Loss In Women And Loss of Income for Salons Hair Salons are being blamed for the ever-increasing hair loss to their clients who have their hair extensions removed by fractionally trained hairdressers, according to Take Down Remover Products.
BigNews.Biz - Jul 16,2009 - Hair extensions have become very popular in the last 10 years with many celebrities taking advantage of the instant volume and length. Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, and Nicole Kidman are just a few famous women who have worn hair extensions.
Hair extensions are lengths of either real or synthetic hair that can be affixed close to the scalp through a number of systems by applying to small sections of your own hair by either weaving in, heat fusing, gluing, clamping with metal rods or using waxes and polymers. All of these methods (except for the clamping which is self explanatory) involve coating your own hair with a chemical or foreign substance.
The staff at Take Down products insists that there is a way to have healthy hair using Hair Extensions. Hair extensions only last a few months before they have to be taken out and completely re-done. Salons need to put just as much concern and patience in removing hair extensions as they do when the client initially invested hundreds of dollars for the hair extension style. Although salons do not earn as much money removing extensions, they should still provide the client with the best service.
The main problem for most hairdressers and clients is taking the hair extensions out without damaging the hair. The damage that has been caused in some salons from improper hair extension removal has been so ghastly and horrifying, their clients have had to wear wigs temporarily.
Salons generally sell a method they know. If they only know one method it may not be the best one for the clients hair. A partially trained hairdresser in extension removal can make poor choices that could result in damage to the hair. The wrong type of extensions, the wrong method of attachment, and limited training of removal has led to severe hair loss and thinning in women.
According to Karen Marie Shelton and Terri Robert-Edwards of HairBoutique “Many people who sell extensions to clients will swear that there is no damage to your own hair, but one hair extension expert told me that ‘in 17 years of doing hair extensions we have yet to see a client who has previously had the individual method applied without damage to their own hair. Without spelling it out I will leave it to your imagination what might happen to your own hair if you melt some plastic onto it or glue or clamp something to it’ ".
As more women are opting for extensions to maintain or enhance their natural hair, they must educate themselves as a safety measure. And salons will need to enhance their training in the technique of Hair Extension Removal or else it will result in serious financial losses or lawsuits for their businesses.
