    Have been wearing extension because was in denial I guess, I thought a little more fullness and length would make me feel better… It did! They were amazing! loved them! Until….I had them removed and replaced by my trusted stylist. I was very concerned about breakage and general hair damage the first time they came off, but was assured everything was great…no issues at all. They went back in so fast I never really had a chance to assess myself as I went right into color, wash reattachment (tape in type). After the third removal (9 months worth in total) I got a good look and almost threw up! My hair that was below my shoulders 9 month earlier, and basically healthy albeit thinning and fine, was now broken, dried out with traction alopecia at the temples, creeping up into the crown. I know I lost 50% of my natural hair because of what I ignored initially and what I allowed after. So freaked…I ran to the Capilia salon, but now I'm thinking i need a real MD to help me. I don't want to waste any more time.

    I"m sorry you have had this experience. I was afraid to try extensions because I was worried they would pull on my hair.
    I had looked up Capilia salon as well as it came up in a google search but I"m not sure I would go to them either. An MD is the way to go. Think we have to be persistent though.
