Beyonce Says Goodbye to Extensions
Long luscious hair, in the form of hair extensions, have been a staple of Beyonce's look for years now, but she debuted a new look this morning on Instagram: a pixie cut! It is hard to say whether her new cut is the result of the scuffle she had with an industrial fan during a recent show, where her hair got caught during her routine, or if she was seeing damage from the extensions. Maybe the busy superstar mom was just ready for a change, whatever the motivation, she looks great!
Hair extensions have become a dangerously popular trend in, and out, of Hollywood, but unfortunately, many women don't realize that they are actually extremely harmful to the hair follicles. Because of the excess weight and pulling, hair extensions, when worn too much, can lead to a type of hair loss called "traction alopecia." Traction alopecia is a form of "scarring alopecia" and characterized by an obliteration of the hair follicles. Hair transplantation is the most effective way to reverse this condition.
I hope that women take Beyonce's new look as an example and consider saying goodbye to their hair extensions!
