As if Jennifer Aniston doesn’t have enough to worry about right now. With Brad’s baby coming, and negative buzz about her forthcoming movie, and now she has hair issues. What is the cause of her hair problems? Extensions. Jennifer made a rash decision to cut her hair shortly after her split with Brad Pitt. She regretted that, and ended up having hair extensions put in to recover from her rash decision.
“So I decided to have a couple of extensions, never knowing you end up with 400 things in your head that cause your hair to break off.
“Nothing destroys your hair faster than extensions. It’s taken a year and a half to get my hair grown out.”
Miss Aniston’s comments follow celebrities including Nancy O’Dell, Kate Beckinsale and Christina Aguilera all being spotted with temporary bald patches caused by hair extensions.
“Hair extensions are one of the worst possible things you can do to your hair,” said trichologist Leonora Doclis of hair specialists The Belgravia Centre.
“Extensions are glued onto your normal hair and they often break off because they are too heavy. Sometimes they break off close to the scalp, giving you a temporary smooth area and at other times they break off about half an inch down.”
“Although the damage is usually minimal, sometimes it can be long term. There are also very few occasions in which hair extensions do not cause some sort of damage to your hair.
“I am very against them and advise my clients with thin hair to get a wig rather than hair extensions as they can only cause more damage.”
