Traditional Hair Extensions Resulting in Hair Loss and Thinning Hair

Many women who have used traditional hair extensions will know the frustration that comes with using what are often poor quality and ill-attached extensions. However most are unaware that tailored, gentler and more realistic hair loss solutions are available. Women who are experiencing female hair loss will know the paranoia that comes with trying to convince the world that they have a healthy head of hair. Prompted by months of worry, many women are tragically driven to attempt to hide their hair loss problem by attaching heavy hair extensions to their already weak hair. This unfortunate mistake can then even lead to more extensive hair loss.

Hair Surgeon Reveals that Hair Extensions Drastically Aggravate Hair Loss

In a heartbreaking and ironic twist, it appears that in an attempt to maintain the little hair they have left, the use of poor quality hair extensions is actually exacerbating hair loss. Confirming this vicious cycle, hair surgeon Mabroor Bhatty of Transform Cosmetic Surgery, revealed that traditional hair extensions drastically aggravate hair loss and spot balding. Bhatty has warned against using such extensions, explaining how the pull from the weight of the extensions themselves creates tension in the hair follicle, resulting in patchy and severe hair loss as the natural hair is simply unable to bear the strain. Known as ‘traction alopecia’, this dermatological disorder is both painful for the scalp, and distressing to the woman.

An Alternative to Traditional Hair Extensions is Available!

There is hope for women experiencing hair loss and interested in hair extensions, especially for increasing hair density and length along the crown and part. Made specifically for women suffering from hair loss, topette crown extensions successfully avoid excess pulling on delicate hair follicles, whilst still adding length and thickness to hair. Unlike traditional hair extensions, these topettes look seamlessly natural. Many women express their concerns that their traditional hair extensions are not wholly convincing, as thinning along the crown and part still give away their hair loss problem. Addressing this issue, crown extensions create the natural appearance of hair growing from the scalp whilst also adding a seamless natural density along the crown and part.  This undetectable look is achieved through the use of a transparent lace matrix contoured to the shape and size of the scalp where said thinning is occurring. Individual hairs are implanted one strand at a time into the lace matrix to avoid the awkward lumps and bumps that come with inferior hair extensions.

Topette Crown Extensions offer a far superior alternative to traditional hair extensions, giving the wearer confidence, comfort and a more convincing natural look.
