Hair extensions are often touted as a way to look more like your favorite celebs and more youthful, and they are.
However, a recent study found that many are actually detrimental to your hair’s appearance and longevity.
“Hair extensions are generally considered a hair loss product,” Dr. Tanya Shackelford, a clinical psychologist at New York University, told The Huffington Post.
“They are often very expensive, but they are very effective for many things.”
According to Dr. Shackelford, many hair extensions are designed to “de-pigment” the hair, which is the hair follicle’s natural process of removing excess oil.
The result is that hair appears thinner, fuller and thicker.
“These are not effective at preventing the hair loss, and you can have a lot of different issues with hair extensions,” Dr Shackeyford said.
“I think the biggest issue with them is the fact that you can really get an unhealthy level of the product.”
Shackelford and her colleagues tested the hair products on 632 patients, asking them to wear them for a month or so.
The researchers found that hair extensions can cause serious damage to hair follicles, causing them to die prematurely and to develop cancer.
Hair extensions may cause hair loss in the short term.
But by the time the hair is removed, it can have completely lost its volume and thickness, which causes the hair to lose its elasticity and hair to appear brittle.
Additionally, a study published in the American Journal of Dermatology found that some of the hair extensions used by the subjects could lead to a loss of hair, as the hair could stretch and grow.
Dr. Jennifer Tysk, a dermatologist at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the lead author of the study, told the Huffington Post that it’s important to understand the full extent of the damage a product can cause.
“The longer you use the product, the more the products’ impact on the hair can get worse,” she said.
Some of the products tested included L’Oreal Hair Gel, the famous Bobbi Brown hair gel, and L’Oréal Hair Gel.
“It’s very clear that the products that are in the study that have been studied the most, they tend to do the worst,” Tysko told The New York Times.
Tysky said that the majority of the subjects who were using these products experienced significant problems.
“What’s really concerning is the length of time it takes for the hair damage to occur,” she told the Times.
“If you have a product for six months, you’re in the realm of six months and you could die.
It’s a really big concern, and I think that a lot people don’t realize how serious it is.”
Tyskos study found some of those products could cause the hair on the scalp to grow too large and can cause hair to grow more deeply.
Hair that has been damaged also can damage the hair in the back of the head, which can cause the scalp hair to become thicker and darker.
“For example, the L’OR hair gel is an anti-aging hair gel that has a lot to do with hair loss,” Tiesko said.
In fact, Tysok said that some people may also be more susceptible to developing skin cancer as a result of these products.
“There are some studies that suggest that L’ Oréal has been known to have a connection with the skin cancer, but we can’t be sure if this is just the L.A. Times story or not,” she explained.
Another study, published in Clinical Journal of Cosmetic Dermatological Sciences, found that people who used products that had been tested on animals were more likely to develop skin cancer.
“This is because the products were tested on animal skin and the skin cells in these skin cells have a higher sensitivity to chemicals,” Dr Tyska said.
One of the more recent studies published in American Journal for Dermatologic Surgery examined more than 2,000 women with type 1 diabetes and found that their hair loss levels were significantly higher than those of women who were healthy and had no hair loss at all.
The study found similar results in women who had had a mastectomy.
Tiesk said that hair loss is a risk factor for skin cancer in general.
“In general, the longer you have hair loss [and] the more you use these products, the higher the chance that you have cancer of the skin,” she added.
Hair loss is also linked to a higher risk of heart disease.
“You are more likely than not to be a heart attack patient,” Tiosko said, noting that women who use hair products are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
A study published last month in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism also found that women with hair growth issues had a higher rate of diabetes and a higher incidence of coronary heart disease compared to women who didn
