Hair Extensions for Jennifer Lawrence?

It's hard to find someone in Hollywood who isn't using hair extensions - and Jennifer Lawrence is certainly no different. She was recently spotted in New York where her extensions were evident as she went apartment hunting.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again: extensions are extremely bad for the hair! The extra weight and pulling effect can physically damage the hair follicles, resulting in permanent hair loss (i.e., traction alopecia). A number of celebrities, from Naomi Campbell to Kim Kardashian, appear to be suffering the after-effects of these products.

Female hair loss is often caused by genetic factors, but there are a number of other ways you can damage your hair - physical damage from extensions, wigs, braids, pony-tails, etc. is something every woman needs to be aware of. It's ok to do so every once in a while, but if it is done regularly it will likely lead to irreversible damage to the follicles.
