xtensions can be wildly expensive, apparently in more ways than you might think. Depending on the kind of fake hair you buy, you could be getting a number of things you don't expect.
If you wear clips in extensions, sew in extensions, or have a weave, you will want to read this.
If you've ever wondered what the secret to beauty is, it's fake hair. It's long been a celebrity beauty secret, but now, even normal civilians are forking over their hard-earned cash for luscious locks.
The extensions are (supposedly) real hair that you clip in, sew in, or tape in to the roots of your own, natural hair.
Year after year, more and more people shell out thousands of dollars to add length and volume to their tresses.
Some extensions can be clipped in at home, and some must be installed by a professional in a salon.
Ah, the things we do for beauty.
While there are definitely way weirder things done in the name of glamour, the people shelling out for thick, beautiful hair might want to think twice after hearing this new information about extensions.
It turns out there's almost no regulation in the hair extension industry.
And thanks to a recent BBC investigation, an organization called Fair Hair Care is calling for change.
Apparently labels like "100% Human Hair" can often be misleading.
As Fair Hair Care told Metro, “As the industry is not regulated, factory practices are unethical and are not regulated so when demand outstrips supply, factories end up cutting corners and mixing human hair with synthetic hair or animal hair.”
Wait, so you’re telling us we could be unknowingly clipping animal hair into our scalps? What else don’t we know?!
