Jennifer Aniston Goes Back to Extensions

This past November, Jennifer Aniston cut her signature locks into a short bob and publicly discussed the fragile state of her hair. Aniston was quoted in Elle magazine saying her hair "reacted badly to a Brazilian Blowout treatment," prompting the star to chop her hair. 

But it appears Aniston is already missing her long locks, because she was spotted out recently with long extensions, which may again put her damaged hair at risk. I've talked about the risks associated with extensions countless times on here, and I'll say it again, hair extensions can be 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. 

Hollywood often leads the world when it comes to style, but this is one trend that I'd be happy to see fade away.
