SInce entering the world of extensions, I find myself staring at hair on a somewhat, freakishly, obsessive basis. For instance, today I was strolling through the mall and I spotted a girl with gorgeous, waist length blond hair. My trained eye instantly evaluated her highlights, hair thickness and texture. It was stunning!
I knew that her gorgeous locks were at least partially extensions. Her hair was too perfect and thick on the ends to be natural. The hair really complimented her look...she was really pretty.
Some people constantly say they are trying to "grow my hair out." The problem is that the whole process has less to do with using the correct products and keeping split ends at bay, and more to do with genetics. The average person will grow 1/2 inch of hair per month. So one might think..."okay, in 3 years I will have super long, beautiful hair." If all of our hair follicles remained intact, this would be true, but hair follicles burn out after time. Our genetics determine how long our follicles are active; they range from 2-5 years. So if you have been trying to grow your hair for quite some time...hair extensions might be the answer.
