 "I didn't read your EXPOSED website, so I didn't have the information to check out the stylist.  I am very sad because now my hair is extremely damaged and I have had to spend over one thousand dollars more going to other stylists to fix the damage from the first stylist--that I did not check out.  It turns out that the first stylist used an inappropriate method for my hair, and she didn't have experience with my type of hair"

Letter to the Editor Hair Extensions Exposed

Do you want Hair Extensions?

Fact:  Every method can cause permanent damage

Does this mean you shouldn't get them?

Absolutely NOT!!  we explain how the natural hair can become damaged and what steps you can take to avoid damage.

Fact:  There are methods for thin, thick, curly, thinning, straight or damaged hair and more. 

There is not one BEST method that will work for everyone.  What will work for your hair, may not work for someone else.  This is why it is very important to schedule several different consultations with stylists that offer different methods so you can compare and decide which method is best for your hair.  In Exposed there are details of over 40 different hair extension methods along with an entire chapter on how to prepare for your consultations.  Do you know the important questions that you need to ask your stylist?

Fact:  No type is completely undetectable.

Most salons advertise with the words "completely undetectable"  If extension hair is attached to your natural hair, there will be a visible point of attachment.  The skill of the stylist will eventually determine if they are well disguised with your own hair.  Many methods require the stylist to attend 1-3 day hands on training classes to learn the skills needed to attach, remove and blend in the hair.  How do you know if your stylist has had training?

Hair extensions have come so far today that they are really undetectable, when attached by an experienced stylist.  You can get beautiful long hair just like all those celebrities and no one will know you are wearing them- unless of course you tell them.

Find out everything about methods, stylists, costs, problems, type of hair used and more

Step by step guide takes you from deciding on hair extensions to taking care of the them once you get them.

Should you even have long hair?

Fact:  Extensions require extra work on your part to maintain and keep healthy.

Many stylists advertise that you treat extensions just like your natural hair, with no extra special maintenance required.  The fact is that long locks requires extra work.  It takes longer to wash, condition, blow dry and style.  If you don't take care of your hair you will quickly become damaged. 

But, there is much more involved than simply scheduling an appointment.  If you go with the wrong stylist or pick the wrong method you could end up with damaged hair and spend a lot of money.

The answer to that question is very simple:.  If you don't do your research, know about how the extensions are attached, know that your stylist is properly trained and all the other fine details, you could very well BE THROWING YOUR MONEY AWAY and RUINING YOUR HAIR in the process

Extensions can cost between several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.  Do you really want to risk that amount of money without doing any research?
