Thread: anyone used using extensions while growing out hair ????

    Default anyone used using extensions while growing out hair ????

    Hi all Im new here and from australia. I currently have micro link hair extensions in to take my lenght to waist !!!! my hair is currently bsl. what its done for me is stopped me being tempted to trim my hair also I am more aware of it growing which encourages me.

    I am going to buy manemaxx as it is supposed not to hurt the hair in any way . I wondered if anyone has any experience in this area theycould share with me at all. I havent ordered yet but am seriously considering. the micro links are creating a bit of hair fall out ( not good) so want to stop using them. I look forwards to any replies and I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this forum.

    I have clip in extensions that I wear for photoshoots. They are made from 22inch human hair from India. The quality is alright, not a complete match to my natural hair though and they aren't very silky feeling. I know that clip in extensions can be bad for your scalp and hair, and glue in ones can cause massive damage and hair loss. If you get some don't expect to find them very comfortable.

    I had a purple extension in my hair for awhile, it was really well done. It was glued in and when it came out it took a lot of the hair out with it. I'd be pretty leery of any extensions and the breakage it could cause.

    thanks Koots for answering. I have micro links in but yes they pull a bit on the hair. I am going to get Manemaxx which are bonds made of wax. they sound wonderful . as with anything you need lots of pacience to put them in and more pacience to comb them well every day but I was a hair dresser so Ill be ok. I am going to place my order soon and find out for myself. The support looks really great from the lady that runs the site. Ive been lurking around them for ages. with my micro links in I found I was not so tempted to keep chooping my hair and It appears to be growing quickly as I am taking DE and biotin. well we will see.

    Some waxes are as strong and damaging as glue. Please be careful.

    In my opinion, the risk of having extensions wreak havoc on your hair isn't one worth taking if you want to grow it out long. Sure, there might be some more and some less damaging types, but I think all permanent extensions must be damaging...

    Try wearing your hair up so you don't notice that it's only BSL if your goal is waist? BTW, IMO, BSL is long!!!
    Fast typer.
    I have fine hair that I'm working on growing long!

    I've used Manemaxx before - the wax does not damage your hair AT ALL. It is very soft and kind of pliable but solid enough that it keeps the extension hair in place until you want to take it out. Just don't use a hot blow dyer on the wax. The only down-side to me, is that it takes me about 4-6 hours to do an install.
    Here is an excellent review of the product (from when it was still called Tiffany Twist): http://www.diyextensions.net/viewtopic.php?t=773
