Can wearing hair extensions help my hair to grow?

Here at Great Lengths we know how hard it can be to keep your hair healthy amidst the stresses and strains of modern life. If you are growing out your hair, you may be looking for a miracle solution. The truth is, there is no instant growth remedy, but there are things you can do to encourage quicker growth and prevent breakage.

The Sciency Bit

As mentioned, there is no instant remedy for super-speedy hair growth. However, many Great Lengths hair extensions wearers report that their natural hair does seem to grow quicker when there hair extensions are in.

First of all, it is important to note that Great Lengths hair extension bonds are made from a unique keratin formula, which is scientifically proven to be kind to healthy hair. So if you are worried about hair loss, then rest assured that this isn’t an issue.

The main reason that hair extensions may encourage growth is due to your care routine. When you are wearing hair extensions you are required to take a little more care of your hair on a day-to-day basis: you will need to brush it more regularly (which stimulates the scalp and encourages growth) and you tend to use better quality care products (which care for your natural hair, as well as your extensions hair).

Growing your hair

Finally, when wearing extensions, you are required to wash your hair less frequently. Daily hair washing can strip the hair of its natural oils (which keep it strong and shiny) and as such can lead to breakage, so even though your hair is growing, its breaking off. Giving your hair a break from over-washing certainly helps it to replenish the natural oil coating.

Help is at hand for the awkward in-between stage…
