Why Do My New Hair Extensions Hurt?
If you are new to hair extensions and have recently had a set fitted, you may be wondering if it is normal for your head to feel sensitive after the fitting. This is an incredibly common question, as many of us suffer from a sensitive scalps, and the installation of a new set of hair extensions can cause this to become a little uncomfortable in the first few days of the fitting.
New Hair Extensions Can Take A While To Adjust To
When hair extension are first fitted, on the day of the installation the bonds will be placed close to your scalp so that they are secure, and will last you 3-4 months whilst they slowly grow down. The extension should be placed just far enough away from the scalp so that it can move in every direction and not be restricted, and they should lay pendulously (flat against the head) without sticking out at all. By placing the hair extensions in such a way, your hair extensions should cause you minimal discomfort, however each and every client is different, and some will experience a settling in period for them to get used to the hair extensions which can be mildly uncomfortable. Many describe this sensation as being somewhat similar to having tied your hair in a tight ponytail for the day, where the scalp has become tender from the pressure of the style. With hair extensions this is a perfectly normal sensation, and will subside within a matter of days once your scalp has adjusted and returned back to normal.
Why Can New Hair Extensions Cause discomfort?
There are a number of different elements that come into play that could cause mild discomfort for the first few days of your hair extension fitting. These include your scalp being sensitive to the new weight of the hair, your scalp being sensitive to the attachment method, (e.g. a micro ring), or your hair extensions being slightly too tight. In most cases, and where low to mild discomfort is experienced, this is perfectly normal and not anything to worry about.
Are Your Hair Extensions Causing Sever Pain And Discomfort?
If you have read the above and believe your hair extensions to be more than mildly uncomfortable, causing you pain, this may be due to an incorrect fitting. It is important to identify whether or not you are experiencing mild discomfort which is normal, or significant discomfort, as the latter will need to be corrected whereas mild discomfort is to be expected and will work its self out. If you have experienced pain that has not subsided over a 3 day period, or are genuinely finding the hair extensions very uncomfortable, then you will need to look for a cause to allow you and your hair extensionist to find a solution to help you as quickly as possible.
What Should I Do If My Hair Extensions Are Uncomfortable
If you believe your hair extensions are painful and that this is more than a typical adjustment period, we would advise you to seek an appointment with your hair extensions as soon as possible to have the hair extensions corrected so that they are comfortable for you. It may only be a very small adjustment that is required, however it is better to be safe and have the extensions assessed by a professional if you are ever at all concerned.
