Kim Kardashian is known for her voluminous locks, but sometimes, pain is beauty. A professional stylist tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, that the reality star’s frequent usage of extensions might be causing her hair to fall out!
Let’s be honest, a nice hairdo can make or break an outfit, which is exactly why SO many celebrities have extensions these days. Extensions provide the perfect chance to switch up our looks, without the commitment. Sadly, there is one huge downside to wearing them — they damage your hair! Kim Kardashian, 35, was returning from a workout in NYC on Sept. 7, when it looked like her hair might be thinning out. When HollywoodLife.com asked professional hairstylist Sally Henley Styles, from Salon H in Beverly Hills, if Kim’s extensions could cause permanent damage to her locks, she came back at us with some unfortunate revelations.
“It’s almost impossible to wear hair extensions for long periods of time and not damage the hair,” Sally told us EXCLUSIVELY. “It’s way more common than most people realize for hair extensions to rip the hair out from the roots. If they aren’t maintained properly, which means getting them re-done or tightened every few weeks, the hair gets pulled. Another factor is how they’re put in, if they’re weaved too tight or the taped sections are too thick they hair will be ripped out from the roots. The idea that you can put in hair extensions and they will help your hair grow is just not true.”
Well, there you have it, hair extensions might NOT be the secret to flawless (natural) hair. The Selfish author has experimented with every hairstyle and color under the sun, from radiant red to sun-kissed blonde, and she’s not the only one in her family! Kylie Jenner loves extensions so much, that she actually came out with her own line, called Kylie Hair Couture. The LipKit creator also relies on wigs to switch things up. Kylie has a FULL closet dedicated to about eighteen wigs in almost every color.
