Can you Wear Extensions if you Have Hair Loss?

Losing hair can be a distressing experience for women. It can impact self-esteem and overall confidence. Thankfully, advancements in the beauty industry have provided solutions to address this concern. One such option is the use of hair extensions. In this blog post, we will explore the possibilities of using hair extensions as a solution for individuals experiencing hair loss abd we will provide insights and guidance for those seeking to regain their confidence.

We're often asked if hair extensions work for hair loss mostly because hair extensions seem like an easier and viable solution. Below is a breakdown of my opinion.

Understanding Hair Loss

Hair loss can occur due to various reasons, including conditions like alopecia areata, post-partum hair loss, female pattern balding, or even as a result of chemotherapy. It is crucial to identify the underlying cause of hair loss before considering any hair extension method. Consulting with a medical professional or a trichologist can help determine the cause and guide you toward the most suitable solution.

Hair Extensions and Hair Loss

It is important to understand that you need hair to cover the hair extension wefts, therefore, if your hair is thinning at the top of the head, hair extensions may not be your best option. In this case, a hair topper with hair extensions will be a better option! A hair topper is exactly what it sounds like, a hair piece that can be installed to the top of your head making it look like your hair is growing out of your scalp thicker and naturally. You can wear a topper alone or in addition to extensions. It all depends on your particular needs and goals.

However, in most cases if your hair is fine, thin or only slightly thinning then hair extensions can be installed, without the need for a topper.

The great thing about NBR Hair Extensions is that they're a virtually undetectable method of installing hair extensions and they even offer topper options.
