6 Things to Know About Extensions

by Martha Adams

I wish I knew...

...how much work it was to wash, blow dry and style my new hair! It's a full-time job.

Now I have to...

...add an extra 25 minutes to my morning routine for washing and drying my hair. I used to be a wash-and-go gal.

I can't live without...

... Moroccan oil and my round brush. It makes the end of my hair smooth, not fried-looking. I have perfected the at-home blowout.

When I work out I...

...tie my hair into a bun. I have to have it out of my face and off my body.

I never thought...

...I would be playing with it soooo much! I'm always touching my hair. Many friends have called me out on it.

My advice to women who want extensions is...

...it's a commitment, not a one-night love affair. Be sure you can do the maintenance. It's worth it!

More about extensions: Choose a salon that uses cold-fusion bonding, which attaches hair with protein bonds rather than damaging glue. Be prepared to stop in to reattach loose strands about every six weeks.
