Debunking Hair Extensions Myths

Debunking Hair Extensions Myths

Brittany Aldean
3 minute read

When I started researching and developing my clip-in hair extensions line, it didn’t take long for me to realize that there are a LOT of misconceptions about them. I’m not going to lie, I believed a few of these myths myself! But as soon as I started wearing these clip-ins, it opened a whole new world of style possibilities! 

So babes, have you believed any of these hair extensions myths?

Myth 1: Clip-ins Pull Out Your Hair

False! Our clips are designed to safe and comfortable so you don’t lose any hair! Plus, we have printed guides and tutorial videos to teach you how to install them perfectly!

Myth 2: Clip-ins Stunt Hair Growth

I heard this one a lot, and the more hair extensions wearers I talked to, the more I realized that it’s actually the opposite. Our very own hair expert, Terra Harvell, has seen her hair grow while wearing extensions. Terra says, “My natural hair would never grow past a certain point, but now I’m seeing new, healthy growth alongside my extensions.”

The beauty of clip-ins is that they can be taken in and out, so you don’t have to shower or sleep with them in. You can give your hair breaks, and wear them when you want to!

Myth 3: Clip-ins are Painful to Install

This couldn’t be farther from the truth! I wear my Brittany clip-ins all the time without even a little bit of pain! If you can use a bobby pin or a claw clip, you can install these hair extensions! 

Myth 4: Clip-ins Don’t Look Natural

Again, totally false! We have an array of colors that our experts can match with any hair color. Plus, my clip-ins are made from real human hair, so they can be colored and toned just like your own hair. You and your stylist can make small adjustments to any color to make it match and blend perfectly. 

We also recommend taking your clip-ins to your favorite stylist and having them cut the extensions to blend them with your hair. It gives you the most natural look possible!

Finally, if you install your pretty hair using our printed guides and tutorial videos, you’ll be able to hide those clips in your own hair perfectly! 

Myth 5: Clip-ins Can Only Be Styled One Way 

Come on, you know this isn’t true! I LOVE trying new styles, and my clip-ins have allowed me to try even MORE! Did you see my fabulous curls from Melissa, Terra, and the team at Salon Five Zero Four?! Those are my Brittany clip-ins! And of course, you’ve seen our boho braid tutorials and the high pony I rocked in our launch video. Even after cutting my hair into a long bob, I’ve been able to pop my clip-ins in and try all sorts of new styles. The sky is the limit with clip-in hair extensions! 

There you have it, babe! Did we debunk any myths that you had been believing?? If we did, it’s time to start shopping for your own clip-in hair extensions today!
