Salon Insider A new study from the Hair Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) shows that people who use hair extensions are getting more bangs and more facial hair than people who only use hair styling tools.
The study, published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, looked at more than 1,600 people in the United States.
The results showed that people using hair extensions were getting more hair than the average person who only used hair styling.
“Our findings show that extensions are not just a hairstyle accessory, they are also a fashion accessory,” said the study’s senior author, University of Maryland professor and head of the UCLA School of Nursing and Health Sciences.
The researchers say that people in this study who were using hair products and hairstyles that had an average of 3.7 million hairs were getting up to 4.4 million more than those who used products with less hair.
People who used hair extensions also had more facial skin than those with other hairstyles, such as ponytails or beards.
The Hair Institute also found that people over age 65 who use extensions were more likely to have facial skin that was slightly more pigmented than those in their 20s and 30s.
The research found that the people who were not using hair styling products were more susceptible to developing acne, according to the Hair Institutes website.
A study published in December 2018 in the journal Dermatologic Surgery found that patients who were prescribed the most effective treatments to manage acne were more than twice as likely to benefit from treatment with oral creams and exfoliators than those on a placebo.
The studies findings are consistent with those of a 2017 study published by the Journal, and a 2015 study published on the same topic, which found that treatments that are applied to the skin can help to treat acne.
The findings are also in line with a 2017 survey published by JAMA Dermatological Society.
In that study, which surveyed more than 6,000 people, researchers found that over 80 percent of people surveyed said that hair removal was a primary reason for their treatment decisions.
The survey also found a correlation between the number of years a person had been using a hair product and the percentage of people who had taken medication to control acne.
“The results of our research are consistent, and we know from previous research that treatments with the greatest potential for curative effects are the ones with the highest rates of use,” said Dr. Pauline A. Sperling, the chair of the department of dermatology at the UCSB.
“We can’t ignore the fact that the majority of people have at least one prescription for a treatment, and this may be a key factor in their ability to manage their acne.”
