If clip-in extensions are part of your daily routine, then over time you might experience an increase in hair loss. This is because of the increased tensions and weight of each weft. Hair growth normally occurs when the follicle produces normal strands of hair that grow out and then shed to make room for new growth. However, when the hair follicle is affected due to tension or other stress, it can shrink and become smaller in size which produces hair that is finer than usual. The follicle’s natural growth life cycle is unable to continue, which can result in hair loss.
If you experience balding or excessive hair loss, consult with your doctor.
